Scientists and engineers in the United States and Japan plan to test the world’s highest-resolution videoconferencing system: a state-of-the-art Sony video projector that displays “4K” digital video, with images that are about 4,000 pixels across.

The data will be sent over a 9,000-mile optical network linking the University of California, San Diego, with Keio University in Tokyo, operating at speeds of up to a billion bits per second.
