Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has laid out a timetable for the switch to 4k-resolution and 8k-resolution broadcasts.

The Ministry aims to be the world’s first country to broadcast in 4K-resolution in July 2014, followed by a trial run of 8K-resolution broadcasts by the public broadcaster NHK in 2016. NHK’s broadcast satellite service aims to have 8K in time for the 2020 Olympic Games.
