The company notes that high-resolution content which provides realistic images and a true sense of immersion has moved beyond 4K to super-high-resolution 8K. It then offers some examples of the move towards 8K.
It has become clear that Japan is planning to launch an 8K SHV test broadcast and then promptly restructure the UHD service.

Korea is also preparing to offer an 8K service demonstration at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. LG Display displayed a new beacon of the 8K era by revealing their 98-inch 8K Color Prime Ultra HDTV at CES 2015.
Notably, in February, VESA announced Embedded DisplayPort Standard 1.4a which brings support for 8K displays. Also interesting is that the 8K resolution of 7680x4320 is exactly three times the resolution of a 2560x1440 iMac.
