NHK to broadcast 'Kohaku Utagassen' in Super Hi-Vision at 2 locations
NHK will broadcast live its popular New Year’s Eve program “Kohaku Utagassen” (Red and White Song Contest) using Super Hi-Vision.
Super Hi-Vision is a next-generation television system and features ultra-high-definition images with 16 times the
number of pixels of conventional HD, and stunning 3D sound using a 22.2 multichannel sound system. Super Hi-Vision
creates an immersive viewing experience, making you feel like you are actually there and seated among the audience.
This year, the broadcasts will take place at two venues in Japan: at Tokyo Tower and at one of NHK’s local broadcasting stations in Yokohama. They will start at 7:15 p.m.
