While many TV makers are working on developing 4K technology, Japan is looking beyond.


In June, more than 20 competing Japanese manufacturers and broadcasters - including Sony, Sharp, Toshiba, Panasonic, NTV and the NHK - put aside their differences and joined forces in a government-backed collaborative forum called "NexTV-F."
