Digital Television

Digital television (DTV) is the transmission of audio and video signals for digitally processed and multiplied, in contrast to the fully analogue and separate channels used for analogue TV signals. Due to data compression, digital TV can support more than one program on the same band channel width. This is an innovative service that represents the first significant evolution in color television from television technology in the 1950s digital TV roots were closely associated with the availability of low cost and high performance computers. It was not until 1990 that digital television became feasible.

In the mid-1980s, as Japanese consumer electronics companies have advanced with the development of HDTV technology, the analogue MUSE format proposed by NHK, a Japanese company, was seen as a dummy who threatened to eclipse the technologies of electronics electronics companies United States of America. In June 1990, the Japanese standard MUSE, based on an analog system, was the leader of over 23 different technical concepts to be considered. Thus, an American company, General Instrument, has demonstrated the feasibility of a digital television signal. This progress has been of such importance that the FCC has been persuaded to postpone its decision on a normal ATV until a model can be developed digitally.

In March 1990, when it became clear that a digital standard was feasible, the FCC took a number of critical decisions. First, the Commission stated that the new ATV standard should be more than an improved analogue signal, but could provide genuine HDTV signal with at least twice the resolution of existing television images. (7) So in order to ensure that viewers who do not want to buy a new digital TV can continue to receive conventional television broadcasts, dictating that the new ATV standard should be able to be “simulated” over different channels. The new ATV standard has also allowed the new DTV signal to be entirely based on new design principles. Although incompatible with the existing NTSC standard, the new DTV standard can incorporate many enhancements.

The definitive standards adopted by the FCC did not require a single standard for scanning formats, proportions, or resolution lines. This commitment has led to a dispute between the consumer electronics industry (some broadcasters have joined) and the IT industry (accompanied by the film industry and some public interest groups) that the two scanning processes – interlaced or progressive – would be more appropriate for new visualization devices compatible with digital HDTV. Interlaced scanning, which is specifically designed for greater antiguas analog CRT viewing technology, analyzes odd lines, then odd. In fact, interlaced scanning can be seen as the first video compression model, as it was partially designed in 1940 to double the image resolution to overcome the bandwidth limitations of the television broadcast. Another reason for its adoption was limited to flickering in the early CRT screens, which phosphor-screened screens could retain the scanning electronic canon image for only a relatively short time. However, interlaced scanning does not work most efficiently on new display devices such as LCDs, for example, which are more suitable for more frequent progressive refresh rates.

Progressive scanning, the format the computer industry took a lot of time for computer display monitors, controls each line in sequence from top to bottom. Progressive scan actually doubled the amount of data generated for each full screen view than interlaced scanning paint the screen in a 1/60 second step instead of two steps in 1/30 seconds. The computer industry argued that progressive scanning is superior because it “blinks” in the new model of display devices in interlaced scanning mode. It also argued that progressive scanning allows easier connections from the Internet, and is cheaper for converting into interlaced formats vice versa. The film industry also supported progressive scanning because it offered a more efficient means of converting movie programming to digital format.
