But the Joint effort of both NHK and NTT finally paid-off! NHK was capable then to transmit Super Hi-Vision videos all around the world (80,000km) with just a 0.3 second lag, a huge improvement compared to the usual 1.2 seconds lag obtain when using satellites.
Strong from this success, NHK hopes now to be able to make Super Hi-Vision ready for the public in 2020 in order to broadcast International Sports event from Japan at first.
