UHD launched in South Korea

Ultra High Definition TV which is four times clearer than HD TV has been launched in South Korea. It is the first country outside the inventor country, NHK Japan.

Most of our Flat panel TV is now in HD 1080p (1920 x 1080p) but the content from Assthrow is NOT at 1080p but at 720p (  a minimum at entry level for High Definition). One just cannot imagine that all new TV programs are produced, edited and recorded on HD BUT transmitted to us at standard definition even via Assthrow or Unified!!! Images are also distorted (squeezed or stretched) to fit the TV picture ratio of 16:9 from the old fomat of 4:3. Just go to Unified TV to look. Malu!

Our Ministry of Broadcasting's go at high definition is still stuck inside some cupboard and would they be launching when things go obsolete? They were then testing the 720p way back in 2008!!!

Ultra High Definition's resolution is at 3840 x 2160 (2160p) It is also known as 4K.
You can read more of UHD at Wikipedia.

We are at a loss as why Malaysia, our beloved country keeps boasting of so much 'first' this and that but lack technological advancement that could create more jobs in this creative field.
Just compare the benefits.

Wake up Malaysians!!!
