The London Olympics will have Super Hi-Vision 7,680 x 4,320 cameras in place recording part of the events and proving vision to outdoor public screens. During the running of the London Olympics, NHK, OBS
(Olympic Broadcasting Organization), and the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) will jointly showcase the Olympics in Super Hi-Vision or SVH. The Super-Vision cameras that are capable of providing 16 times more detail than the average 1080p HD display were on show at the recent IBC. Uncompressed SVH transmits at around a whopping 24 gigabits a second data rate and compressed down to 260 Megabits a second over IP Network.
