Digital over-the-air TV transmissions require a lot of broadcast spectrum - wide enough for each station to transmit four different TV signals at once. This wide broadcast spectrum can also make it easier for viewers to interact with their TV sets.More >>
If your local stations are transmitting digital signals and you're watching on cable - you aren't getting a digital picture. In order to receive digital TV pictures, you must have a digital TV set with a digital tuner.More >>
For digital television, the numbers sound impressive: two million TV sets sold in the last three years. However, most of those sets aren't being used to receive digital over-the-air broadcast signals.More >>
AP -- It's called D-V-H-S. The "D" is for digital. It's a new tape format designed for high definition television.
Sean Bersell of the industry trade group Video Software Dealers Association says it offers much clearer picture quality than you get on D-V-D. D-V-H-S made its debut earlier this year -- and it requires a special D-V-H-S player -- that also records high quality pictures. Still to come is something called High Definition D-V-D. It's a disc format geared for owners of high definition television sets. Bersell says H-D D-V-D, like D-V-H-S, is superior to standard D-V-D. He says H-D D-V-D should arrive within the next 12 to 18 months. Copyright 2002 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
