The Japanese space agency (JAXA) and Japanese public television will develop the Super Hi-Vision camera. Their goal: to record 4K and 8K images in space for JAXA’s MMX (Martian Moons eXploration) mission. This would be the first time in history that Ultra High Definition 8K images of Mars and its moons are taken in close proximity.

The Japanese NHK also chose the 4K HDR Summit to present the launch of its linear 4K/8K channel on December 1, 2019, by Hiroyasu Masuda, director of 8K technical development.

And in 2018, Hidenobu Miyazaki, producer of the global content development division of the public television corporation of Japan, was in charge of presenting to the 4K HDR Summit attendees the latest 8K Ultra High Vision productions that the company had carried out.
