During the same event, NHK will also preview a simple editing system for 8K video that allows efficient video editing during 8K playback, and a 2K to 4K video encoder.

NHK has also developed a 4K 3D surgery photographing system, which uses two small l 4K cameras to shoot detailed 3D images during surgery that can be shared among six 4K and three 8K screens.

On the other hand, Korea's Samsung and LG Electronics have not been talking much about 8K so far. LG has promisd to to release an 8K TV next year and Samsung has just showed off their 8K TV prototypes.

Microsoft will also support 8K in Windows 10 and DisplayPort (DP) has enabled 8K transmission in its 1.3 version unveiled last month.
