Sharp will begin limited sales of 8K televisions next month — an important step towards planned trial broadcasts of the format in Japan next year.

8K, also called Super Hi-Vision, packs a resolution of 7,680 pixels by 4,320 pixels — equivalent to 16 times that of today’s high-definition TVs, and the picture has to be seen to be believed. It’s better than most movie theaters and four times the resolution of 4K, which is only just starting to come onto the market in high-end TVs.

The new TVs will be offered first to broadcasters and video production companies and go on sale on Oct. 30. Sharp didn’t announce a price, but the Nikkei newspaper says the 85-inch monitor will cost around ¥15 million (US$125,000).
