ITU close to approving 4K, 8K TVs as UHDTVs

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has began to draft new technical recommendation details for Ultra High Definition Televisions (UHDTVs). TV sets capable of displaying 3840x2160 pixels and 7680x4320 pixels will carry the UHDTV moniker, according to The Register. The smaller resolution will also be known as 4K for short while getting eight megapixels, with the larger one dubbed 8K and sporting a 32-megapixel resolution.

The newly formed definitions allow organizations to begin work on such UHDTVs. Toshiba shipped a 4K TV in Japan late last year, the 55-inch 55x3. It cost an equivalent and whopping $11,600, however. When more manufacturers ship similar TVs remains to be seen.

Other specs of the UHDTVs aren't revealed. The recommendations also still need to be approved by administrators before being finalized.
