A-PAB (Association of Professional Advertisers and Broadcasters) is a trade association in Japan that we have learned will now take an active role in promoting 8K and educating consumers for the Japanese market. At CEATEC, they had a booth where they were showcasing 8K TV and association components and accessories along with educational materials.
On display was a brochure describing the satellite channels now available for 4K and 8K broadcast (18 for 4K and 1 for 8K starting in December). It also showed connectivity options with HDD and set top boxes. In addition, there were posters with more information and an informational video on 8K. All are only in Japanese as they serve only the domestic market.
There was also information on 4K services and features as well. – CC
