This 120fps Super Hi-Vision projector will be a companion to NHK's newly developed relatively small 8K CMOS Broadcast camera, the Sharp 85" 8K LCD TV shown last year and at Cedia 2012, and the recently presented Panasonic 145" 8K plasma TV.
NHK also successfully transmitted 8K terrestrial broadcast over a distance of 4.2 kilometres in the UHF band in Japan in April.

This 120fps 8K Super Hi-Vision projector is not exactly "breaking news". We have seen JVC's 8K projector presented before.
If I read the press release right, this projector acquire 8K by the same e-Shift method as the JVC "4K" e-shift HT projector that has been available for some time.

If I remember right, JVC has presented one or two different 8K projectors with full 8K panels previously, but I read somewhere that JVC found that projectors with full resolution 8K panels became too expensive, and that's why they go for this e-Shift "8K hybrid" version.

NHK will present the projector and all the other 8K equipment at NHK "open house" exhibit in Japan May 24-27.

So do you need to pull the shades for this?

I'd like to see a DVR for this!

And if we try to guess what might be 'state of the art' home AV technology Post-2020...?!

From the 2010 NHK Annual Report (link):

5.2.2 Optical storage technology

We are advancing with our research on thin optical disks and holographic recording technology for future program archives and Super Hi-Vision (SHV) recording equipment.

■Thin optical disks

Thin optical disks with thickness of 0.1 mm are promising candidates for program archives and
home SHV recording equipment because they can rotate at higher speeds, thereby giving them higher data transfer-rates. In FY2010, we developed a high-capacity drive system using thin optical disk drives. In parallel with this development, we proceeded with the development of near-field optical recording technology for increasing the recording density of thin optical disks.

[So we might need to replace those optical media players 'just one more time'...?! ]
