Japanese researchers managed to capture microscopic images of cells infected with the Corona virus using an ultra high-definition camera.

Launching the Japanese Broadcasting Company (Nippon Hoso Kyokai / NHK) on Monday (3/5/2021), a group of researchers at the University of Osaka and NHK collaborated on this experiment using a light microscope equipped with an 8K camera.

Captured images show the experimental animal cells began to change shape four hours after being injected with the coronavirus. The cell then breaks into several pieces.

When the image is enlarged, a white grain structure appears inside the infected cell. This group said the phenomenon could be related to the process of virus transmission or replication in cells.

Associate Professor Nakayama Emi said his group managed to spot previously unknown infected cells.

He said this image could help in evaluating the effectiveness of drugs developed to treat transmission of the coronavirus.

8K resolution is the highest ultra-high definition television (UHDTV) resolution available in the world of digital television and digital cinematography. 8K refers to the horizontal resolution of its derivative formats which is at the 8,000 pixel level to form a total image dimension of 7680×4320.8K is the display resolution that will replace 4K. 4K is rumored to be the main television standard in 2017.

One of the advantages of a high-resolution display like the 8K is that the pixels cannot be seen up close to the human eye. On a 52 “8K screen, these effects can be seen at a distance of 50.8 cm (20 inches) from the screen, and 91.44 cm (3 feet) on a 92” screen. Another practical use of this resolution is the incorporation of cutting techniques into film editing.

Very few video cameras are capable of recording in 8K resolution. Innovators such as NHK are among the companies that have created small broadcast cameras with 8K image sensors.
