Panasonic has revealed it will produce a 145in plasma screen with a resolution of 7680 x 4320, the world's first 8k display not to require a backlight, apparently.

The Super Hi-Vision project - detailed on the Panasonic press site, but hidden behind a password to keep the great unwashed and bloggers out, and let real journos in - is a collaboration with Japanese broadcasting company NHK.

Panasonic was keen to stress that the pair have come up with new tech that inhibits the flickering plasma screens show when their resolution is increased this far.
