New 8K YouTube video crashes computers
YouTube have launched their first 8K film, entitled 'Ghost Towns', allowing users to watch videos in such high resolution that it has reportedly crashed some computers. The video should be able to run on Safari or Chrome but because of the processing power used, computers nearly always crash when watching it. Users without 4K monitors will also be unable to see all of the pixels.
On Thursday 11th June, Simon Gauntlett, CTO DTG, gave the opening keynote to the EBU Technical Assembly in Krakow on the future of television.
