While many broadcasters have yet to embrace 4K UHD, some manufacturers are already gearing up for 8K UHD screens. We can expect to see more on display at the IFA trade show in Berlin later this week, including a 120-inch screen from Sharp, which launched its first 8K display back in 2011. There are many applications beyond broadcasting. It seems technologically inevitable that the trend towards higher resolution displays will continue and that these will end up in more affordable consumer products.
