Its Super Hi-Vision (SHV) format has been kicking around since 2006, with the first transmission requiring a 1 Gbps connection to handle the uncompressed 22.2 sound signal at 28 Mbps with a "compressed" UHD video signal of 600 Mbps.   Uncompressed signals are 24 Gbps.  Care to think how many petabytes that would be for any large amount of programming? The ITU has made NHK's Super Hi-Vision format into a world-wide broadcast standard, along with the "lower" resolution 4K (3,840 x 2,160) format, with supports for frame rates starting at 24p and going up to 120p.
