We have introduced an extremely high resolution video system 'Super Hi-Vision' at the Kyushu National Museum. This feature opened in October 2005 with the purpose of exhibiting high-quality images of national treasures and traditional arts and crafts to its visitors. The system achieves high resolution using the spatial pixel offset method, quadrupling the horizontal and vertical resolution of HDTV. To display the images with high fidelity, it is important to manipulate the images on the basis of the system characteristics. This paper reports on the efforts to ensure image quality for this Super Hi-Vision System, focusing on resolution and color reproduction.
