SMPTE: “Optimism for 8K despite no Olympics”

A report from standards body SMPTE quotes Chris Chinnock, president of Insight Media and the executive director of the 8K Association, as saying that 2020 was going to be the big year for 8K transmission because of the Tokyo Olympic Games.

“That was going to be the premier event, all kinds of new equipment was going to be announced, and there was going to be some hype and pomp and circumstance around 8K, certainly in Japan. Now, all that is postponed at least a year, so we will have to wait and see what happens,” says Chinnock in a report from Michael Goldman.
