Researchers working on UHDTV have finally agreed upon the technical standards required to move forward with the project - something 3D manufacturers have yet to do - and are working hard to perfect the technology. They're even promoting it this year by setting up prototype UHDTVs around the world to showcase the Olympic Games.
The folks at the ITU Study Group on Broadcasting Service are quick to point out that UHDTV is more than just a new fancier resolution. It could pave the way for emerging technologies like glasses-free 3D, which needs as many pixels as it can get.
