irtual reality applications are recently gaining popularity, not least due to the corona virus pandemic. In times of (post-) lockdown, it is becoming increasingly important to create new communication channels and immersive experiences that allow viewing and connecting to a distant world as if it were real—be it museum tours, concert visits or even lectures at universities. Such immersive experiences are created with the combination of ultra-high-quality video and spatial audio, together with the (remote) presentation in a large-screen immersive environment. Since 2009, the Ars Electronica Center has been offering such immersive experiences at the Deep Space 8K. Its most recent production, a virtual interactive 3D tour of Vienna’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral, will be premiered live at this year’s Ars Electronica Festival.

Tokyo-based leading expert in motion picture and multimedia broadcasting production NTV Technical Resources Inc (NiTRo) is a major technical provider to the Japanese broadcasting industry with a range of media services, including production engineering, post-production and broadcast operations and management. Following the launch of 8K broadcast channels in Japan in December 2018, NiTRo broke ground on a new state-of-the-art facility for 8K/UltraHD2 post-production in response to a surge in client requests for editing and delivery of 8K content. During development of the studio, NiTRo examined robust and flexible solutions that could manage both 8K/UltraHD2 and 4K/UltraHD post-production, without requiring separate tools for each workflow. In pursuit of the most streamlined workflow possible, NiTRo selected AJA KUMO 3232-12G for the device’s versatile signal control capabilities to route 8K or 4K SDI signals throughout the new video editing facility, with the added benefit of 12G-SDI connectivity for simplified cabling and transport of high-bandwidth content.
Vietnam’s Sơn Đoòng Cave is the world’s largest at over 5km long, 150m wide and, at its tallest, over 200m high – able to accommodate the Statue of Liberty twice over. Estimated to be 2-5 million years old with a fast flowing subterranean river, it only became internationally known in 2009. It’s the perfect subject for WOWOW Inc’s 4K documentary series with an experimental 8K broadcast. For the documentary, Sony’s FS7 II Super 35 camcorder was the production’s first choice.

Alongside the FS7 II, an α7S II was used for shooting in ultra-low light conditions. We talked to production director Sota Koshino and camera operator Masahiro Hariu about their impressions of the FS7 II.

At one point not so long ago, certain elements of the broadcast industry were hoping that “2020 would be the big year for 8K, because of [Japanese broadcaster NHK’s] plan to broadcast the Summer Olympics in 8K,” recalls Chris Chinnock, president of Insight Media and executive director of the 8K Association. “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.”
