Japanese public broadcaster NHK is to screen the world’s first 8K Super Hi-Vision film at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.
Toshio Lee’s comedic short film Beauties A La Carte will be screened on May 16 and 17 at the Hotel Majestic Barriere, with a gala evening scheduled for May 17.
8K Super Hi-Vision was developed by NHK and delivers a resolution of 7,680 by 4,320 pixels – four times the resolution of 4K and 16 times that of HD – as well as featuring 22.2 multichannel sound.
Nobuhiro Haneda, NHK’s senior manager in charge of 8K content production, said: “New technology is driving new content.
The production of Beauties A La Carte is part of our efforts to understand the technical challenges of producing drama in this new format.”
He continued: “I hope we can work with film-industry professionals to further explore the possibilities of using 8K for feature films.”
