Japanese broadcaster NHK is planning to go super hi-tech for its coverage of the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.The games will be offered in Super 8K - 16 times sharper than high definition televisions and microphones that can zoom in on sound anywhere in the stadium.

Pushed by a desire to showcase their expertise to the world, some of Japan's biggest companies are targeting 2020 as the ideal time to deploy new technologies that could revolutionize mobile telecommunications, consumer electronics, automobiles and even the way people watch the Olympics on TV.

Television might get another Olympic push forward in 2020. While TV makers are currently promoting "4K" or "Ultra HD" sets, which offer four times the level of detail of current HDTVs, Japan's national public broadcaster, NHK, is close to beginning trial service of a system with 16 times the level of detail, called "Super Hi-Vision" or "8K." Test transmissions are due to begin in 2016.For its part, NTT DoCoMo, Japan's biggest mobile telecommunications network operator, is targeting 2020 for the introduction of a 5G cellular phone service. Designed to work in outdoor, urban areas like Tokyo, the system will boast data rates of between 1Gbps and 10Gbps.And in the automotive market, Nissan is working on self-driving technology for cars. The vehicles are already on test tracks and were demonstrated at a recent conference. Production versions could be on the road by 2020.
