Today, Panasonic announced a collaboration with NHK to produce a 145-inch plasma display at 8K (7680 x 4320) resolution -called "Super Hi-Vision" in Japan. The display is the world's first 8K display that doesn't require a backlight, which naturally makes it the world's largest as well. To deal with plasma displays' tendency to flicker at high resolutions, Panasonic and NHK devised a new drive method they claim maintains stability even at 8K.
