In December 2018, the new 4K8K satellite broadcasting started in Japan. And, 8K TV sets have become increasingly popular. Now overseas, 8K TV sets have been released by television manufacturers in each country, and the sales number of TV sets is increasing.
However, there are not so many opportunities to view 8K resolution videos, and the contents are limited. We have launched a YouTube channel in order to enable more people to experience wide variety of 8K contents. We will continue to post 8K contents produced by the participating members. We will also recruit a wide variety of companies, organizations and individuals who can post 8K contents.
