Chris;
thanks for the heads up; how much longer is siggraph going on for and where in LA is it taking place?

The exhibition runs through Thursday, and it's at the LA Convention Center, right next to the "there are no great men anymore to name things after, so we have to sell the names of sports arenas to the highest bidder no matter how silly the resulting name is and how venal we look" Center.

I'm also in LA, at Siggraph. Yes, the NTT system is quite nice. They first introduced it a few years ago, maybe '98?

I don't think they are really proposing it as a replacement for the current consumer system, but it may have applications for commercial use.

I don't know if any other AVSers are here at Siggraph, but I just saw the future of HDTV. A consortum of Japanese companies, led by NTT, is demoing a proposed future HDTV system with a resolution of 2048 by 3840. It has an aspect ratio of 1.875 as opposed to the 1.77 of current HD. It also has less color space compression, with a full 8 bits per channel RGB. It's designed around 24 fps, but displays at 96 fps.

The prototype display device is by JVC, and has some glitches. There are areas with stuck on and stuck off pixels, but overall it's the finest HDTV I've ever seen. It shows great promise for the next generations of D-ILA especially with black level. But it was the smoothness of the image, and the astonishing color quality that is really worthwhile. If you are in LA, I'd consider it worth your while to pay the $65 on-site exhibits-only fee to see this (of course there's plenty of other cool stuff as well.)

Note: I have no connection to JVC or any other company involved. I just think it's cool.

I believe that IBM has also experimented with super high resolution. One of the applications is for the medical field such as Cat-Scans and X-Rays.

I think the system is meant to be suited for digital cinema rather than home theater.

I saw that monitor at the NYC PC show.They were showing high rez aerial photos of midtown Manhattan. Really amazing. There was a magnifying glass there on the table, when using it the display still looked like a good photo.
The guy kind of hesitated to let us see the font sizes of some onscreen menus, though..http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif You'd probably need the magnifying glass.
