・8K acoustically transparent projection screen for 8K audio editing studios and small-scale theaters
・8K SHV application that could revolutionize medical technology

●Technologies for wider application

・Whole-sky live video virtual studio system based on hybrid sensors
・MIMO*1-OFDM*2 equalizer for multipath channels with delays in excess of GI*3
・Hybridcast app tester that uses commercially available receivers to check apps performance
・Speech manipulation and reproduction technology to facilitate easier and more convenient speech communication

●Licensing and technology transfer

NHK’s technologies are open for professional and consumer applications. We offer consultations regarding licensing and technical expertise.

*1 MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output): a wireless transmission method using multiple antennas on the transmitting and receiving ends.
*2 OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing): a method used in digital transmissions wherein subcarriers are “orthogonal” to each other (i.e.,
  crosstalk between subcarriers is eliminated).
*3 GI (guard interval): The interval placed between symbols to prevent delayed signals from interfering with each other.
