Ultra High Resolution 4K/8K Real-time CG System and Its Application
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of IWAIT2013, 2013, 4- p.Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
We propose an 'Ultra-CG project' which promotes an extreme high-definition real-time computer graphics system with a resolution of 4K and 8K (Super Hi-Vision) which is more than the conventional HDTV. It is important for the project to study not only hardware and software requirements but also content creation methodology with which the content is displayed on extreme high-resolution display. We have first developed a functioning test system, which exhibits 'Virtual Museum' in 4K resolution to assess validity of our approach and clarify the tasks toward the further application development. The system consists of a PC with high-speed graphics cards and a 4K monitor. The real-time 3DCG software and all the CG models are built on Unity, which is a 3DCG game engine, used worldwide. We are now considering various feasible applications built on the system such as exhibition, entertainment, medical use and more. This paper describes the test system, discusses the future applications and collaboration of content creators and system engineers.
