Correction, after i wrote that this 8k 88 inch OLED screen produces 240 Hz, today i re-read it again to realize its actually supports 120 Hz, not 240 Hz.  Which is still super smooth at 120 Hz which i believe is much faster than 75 Hz/fps that our human eyes can see.

the 240 Hz for now is for video playback possibly hardware playback, recording, and camera shooting only i think.
Off-Topic / NHK Showcases Thin 88-inch 8K OLED Screen And Also A Bendable OLED Too
« Last post by Paul2 on May 23, 2018, 03:54:44 AM »
The NHK Science and Technical Research Laboratories will hold the Open House 2018 exhibition on May 24 in Japan and among the interesting products there will an 8K / 240Hz, 88-inch sheet-type 8K OLED, along with a bendable iOLED.

NHK is researching a thin, lightweight large-screen sheet-type display using organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). The self-emissive display devices are designed to allow people enjoy 8K Super Hi-Vision's images at their homes.

NHK will be showcasing a 88-inch 8K display based-on thin glass substrates. 8K images are displayed using just a single glass panel, whereas four 4K panels were previously required.  The 1mm panel has been manufactured by LG Display, and ASTRODESIGN, Inc. The display supports 120Hz.

In addition to the typical features of OLED displays such as high contrast and wide viewing angles, high-quality images are achieved by adding NHK's own signal processing techniques for 8K images with high luminance and wide color gamut.

NHK, in collaboration with Nippon Shokubai Co., Ltd., is also researching thin, light, and flexible displays based on organic light-emitting diode (OLED) to encourage the dissemination of 8K Super Hi-Vision displays in the home.

Conventional OLEDs are vulnerable to oxygen and moisture, so when the display is manufactured using conventional OLEDs on a plastic substrate where oxygen and moisture can easily penetrate, the number of defective pixels gradually increases. NHK expects that inverted OLEDs to have longer lifetime since they use materials that are resistant to oxygen and moisture penetration.

Other interesting news from the event include an 8K 4x-Speed Slow-Motion System and a 8K/120 Hz Video Codec for compression and transmission of 8K videos in real time.

NHK is showcasing technologies of 8K video shooting and recording at 4x speed (at frame frequency of 240 Hz) and simultaneous slow-motion instant playback at 60 Hz.

To achieve 8K image shooting at 240 Hz, NHK developed a 1.25-inch 33 megapixel CMOS image sensor with high-speed analog-to-digital converters along with high-speed cameras capable of 8K video shooting at 240 Hz.

Signals between the camera head and camera control unit (CCU) can be connected by a single camera cable. The CCU outputs 8K/240 Hz video using two U-SDI cables.

NHK developed a high-speed slow-motion replay server that can record an 8K/240 Hz video in real time and make instant slow-motion replay at 60 Hz simultaneously using video compression and solid-state drives (SSDs) parallelization techniques. This makes it possible to carry out slow-motion playback at variable speeds while shooting long programs such as sports events.

NHK is also working with FUJITSU LABORATORIES LTD. on coding technologies that compress and decompress 8K videos with a frame frequency of 120 Hz. The companies have developed the world's first 8K/120 Hz real-time video encoder and decoder that comply with the standards for 8K broadcasting.

The hardware encoder compresses 8K/120 Hz videos in real time. The encoding method is MPEG-H HEVC/H.265 Main 10 profile, and the output bitstreams comply with ARIB Standard STD-B32 Version 3.9.

The 8K/120 Hz decoder implemented by software is capable of decoding 8K/120 Hz bitstreams complying with the ARIB Standard in real time.


Wow.  88 inch 8k oled screen that is only 1 mm thick.  that is a lot thinner than current 4k 77 inch and 4k 65 inch oled screen that is about 4 mm thick.  Super Duper thin there.  Awesome! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Not to mention this 88 inch oled screen can produce 240 fps.  wow.  not sure if our human eyes can see anything beyond 75 fps and 120 fps displays are more than enough motion smoothness for our eyes to see.  And this 8k tv can handle 240 fps.  The motion will be extra ultra smooth and if cameras are recorded in a shutter speed of 1/240th of a second or faster, then there will be virtually almost no motion blur on most fast moving subjects. B)

Like what they said, they can slow down the recorded 240 fps to 60 fps by 4 times and watch the video in very fluid slow motion which is handy for playback of sport games. B) :bounce:

oh, they are also working on a bendable oled screen which is also very cool too. :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

thought i'd update you guys with the latest, i'm still at the same job. Pretty much on the same money i was on at the last job now. People are awesome and i've made a lot of new mates there. Heaps of them are gamers too.  I repair 6 different units now and will be trained as a product lead soon. Although i don't really want to stay at this job as it is quite boring and i tend to watch youtube vids all day while working.

Life is good atm so can't complain.  I tend to wonder here every now and then but this place seems to be pretty dead. I don't frequent forums generally at all anymore.  Such is life.

Hows things anyway?

Things are pretty good. I too can't complain. Been really busy lately so it's tough for me to come on here except maybe once or twice a week on the weekends to help keep up with maintenance (though Kurt beats me too it, lol). Still at the same job at a party retailer in the corporate office. The cat is much bigger now but she's just as crazy as ever. Spring just sprung here in the States so when I can I try to do outside stuff. Like today I put new shocks on my Jeep and it rides much smoother. You'd never guess there is close to 174k miles on this thing! If the weather is nice next weekend, I'm going to try to build a headboard for my bed and get some more woodworking done this summer. I got lots of furniture I need to build this year before winter :) I really need to make it a point to post my projects on here. I've done a lot of things in the last year I'm proud of but I tend to throw them up on Facebook and Instagram. I need to start sharing those things with you guys.

The other thing I got into recently is home brewing. I'm loving it and have gotten a couple batches done already. I'm getting some new brewing equipment soon so I'll be doing bigger batches.

Yeah. Place is pretty dead but not any deader than it's been in the last few years, lol. We get a new member wander in once in a while either from referrals from other sites or through Tapatalk. Either way, no matter to me. It's a place for old e-friends to keep in touch. Plus, this place costs next to nothing to run and my credit card gets charged monthly automatically so it'll be up for the foreseeable future :D I barely notice the charges, lol. I was working on some things to spruce up this place but life took a turn, adulting happened and video games fell by the wayside. I have other priorities that have pulled my attention. I may do something with the PS5 but not sure yet.

hello soulgrind, glad to hear that you are doing good.  glad to hear that people you are working with are awesome and you made a lot of new friends there.  i can understand on the watching youtube too much part which can be very boring.  i fractured my left palm below the thumb 4 months ago and it still doesn't heal up 100% yet.  the first 70 days when i fractured my left thumb, i didn't know it was fractured.  the first couple of weeks i kind of suspect it but disregard it and so i used my left thumb normally like washing dishes almost everyday and the ache doesn't go away.

i even washed and cleaned the refrigerator on March 3, and the containers are heavy as i poured water in it as i washed them.  i even rubbed eucalyptus oil on my left thumb and below it for 10 days straight of the last 70 days and the ache doesn't go away.  So that is when i was convinced and believed that the palm below my left thumb is fractured.  so i stopped washing dishes and tried not to use my left thumb as much as possible to let it heal up 100%.

43 days as i let it heals up, i moved my left thumb again and i was hoping it was healed up 100% by then but after a couple days later, the ache came back.  in those 2 days, i wash dishes normally and even played on the monkey bars, a zipline, practice martial arts like tae-kwon-do, and worked out in the park where there are workout equipments there and then the ache below my left thumb came back.  it made me regret moving and using my left thumb after 43 days later when i let it heal.  So obviously, 43 days of healing isn't enough.

in 12 days of the 43 days that i let it healed, i even went to a family doctor to let him permitted me to get x-ray on my left palm.  i was supposed to see him 8 days later because his clients are packed in those days and i couldn't see him sooner but on the 13th day which is 12 days later that i let my palm healed, i called my doctor and my mom talked on the phone for me and the receptionist said if i wanted to go see a doctor soon, i can come in today and wait till the doctor is done with his other clients.  i don't mind waiting so my mom drove me to see a doctor and i waited for about 2 hours before i get called into the clinic's room.  the doctor checked my left thumb and below it and when he first touched it gracefully, it doesn't hurt but like a couple minutes later it ached.  so it took like a couple minutes for it to ache.  before the ach started coming back, he said he could permit me to get it x-ray if i wanted too and i nodded and said yes.

so my mom took me to this hospital and get my left palm x-ray.  she took 3 x-rays of my left palm and that time i didn't think much of it but some minutes later after i got x-rays and my mom took me home on the way, i find that the way she took my x-rays is weird.   the first 2 x-rays she took was on the back of my palm with one shot with my fingers together and the 2nd shot with my fingers slightly apart.  the injuried was on the front of my palm, not the back so why did she took only the back side of my palm only.  i remembered asking her that time if i need to put the front of my palm up and she said the x-ray goes through it so no need.  and the 3rd x-ray she took of my left palm,  she told me to move my left palm to the side and twist it so my left palm face up but in a weird position.  at least it face up so hopefully x-ray can see it better.

Anyway, 8 days later, i received a call saying the doctor checked the x-ray pictures and said he couldn't find anything wrong with my hand or left thumb or below it or something like it.  and the receptionist also suggested that if i wanted more test, i can go see a specialist.  i don't want to see a specialist after i took 3 x-rays and they said nothing is wrong with my thumb.  i have a feeling they are going to say its normal even if i go see a specialist about it.  another weird thing is the doctor didn't check on the box of the permitted paper for my x-ray - that he didn't checked the box that said a copy of the x-ray to the CD for the patience.  if he had checked that, then i would receive a copy of it and i can view it on a computer.  but he didn't.

so after a total of 43 days later i let my left thumb heal, i was hoping it all healed up but it didn't heal up 100% and i was disappointed in myself for using my left thumb still kind of early but i didn't know so i shouldn't be too hard on myself.  in these 4 months because of the ache below my left thumb, i couldn't practice much tae-kwon-do and other martial arts, i couldn't play much on the monkey bars or zipline, especially when i found out i cracked my bone below my left thumb, i didn't dare do those fun stuffs at the park.  even at home, i couldn't play videogames because of it.  there are moments i fall into depressions because of it.  i wasted 4 precious months of my life unabe to do those fun stuffs.  especially practicing tae-kwon-do and other martial arts mostly because i am kind of old, but not too old.  i am 34 years old now but not as old as 40 years old or older, so that mean i wasted those 4 precious months and still counting of little and limited practice of martial arts.  i am afraid by the time i reach 40 years old, i worry that i might not be able to improve on my tae-kwon-do and other martial arts because i worry at that age and later is a bit too old to get any improvement on these martial arts.

during those 4 months, my family and other probably didn't believe that i fractured my palm below my left thumb and i struggled to prove to them but i explained to them in very good detail that i am not pretending that the bone below my left thumb is fractured because it doesn't benefit me much at all because it only wasted my precious time of not being able to practice tae-kwon-do and other martial arts fully.  sure i don't have to wash dishes if my palm is fractured but i rather wash dishes if it heal up 100% or not fractured just so i have something to do to past time and it makes me feel good after i finish washing dishes to see the sink is neat and tidy.  not only that but i couldn't play videogames either to past time so it doesn't really benefit me if i pretend which proof that i didn't pretend.

sorry for my long story but i have to let it out to proof my innocence.  i am not sure how long it will take for it to heal up 100% but i worry i have to restart it again worry that it might take another 2 months of healing for it to heal up 100%.  during the healing process, i could feel my left palm heal up as i could feel a cool liquid traveling inside it as it in the process of mending it.  then there are time it felt like a soothing warm liquid healing inside.  maybe when i no longer felt the liquid inside healing up, it might means its 100% heal up.  but i might not move it for like another 5 days just to be sure.  i worry i have to redo this again and it might take 2 months for it to heal up and i will give it another 5 days just to be sure.  but hopefully it won't take 2 months but hopefully in just another couple of weeks or so.  but i will see.
