Sharp produces first commercial 8K television

Tech company Sharp has produced the first commercial 8K television which will show three dimensional images.

The technology is to be targeted at broadcasters and those interested in testing the format.  

Tech consultant Chris Green told the BBC that 8K screens could provide "a very interesting video alternative to today's shop window and billboard display."

Viewers will not have to wear 3D glasses, as the pixels in the screen will make the images appear three dimensional.
