along comes news of the developing ULTRA HDTV. Here is the clip from The Digital Bits website:


"And how about this? We haven't even gotten fully converted to HDTV yet, when along comes an even better system. Matt and I found this over the weekend, on the online site e4engineering.com, and we thought it would interest you. It seems there's a new prototype for high-definition TV, from Japanese broadcaster NHK, called ultra high-definition video (UHDV). It would boost the resolution to a whopping 4,000 scan lines! By comparision, the best HDTV is 1080 lines, and the HD masters that Hollywood creates for its films are generally around 2,000 scan lines. Check this out from the article:


"NHK researcher Dr. Kohji Mitani said the project team had shot a three-minute demonstration video by attaching the camera to the front of a vehicle and driving it around the streets.


The footage was then shown to members of the public on a 4x7m wide-angle screen provoking, according to Mitani, gasps of astonishment. Some viewers even experienced nausea because of the ultra realistic visual effect of speed without the usual physical sensation of movement."


Technology, man. It just never stops, does it? Pretty soon you'll be plugging cables into your head to watch movies."


Man...when will this madness stop!!!!!!???? [laugh]
