About DTV

By | Feb 18, 2007

1) DTV stands for Digital Television. Broadcasters are able to deliver within their licensed frequencies sharp pictures and sound. In DTV you will either receive or not receive the signal so there will no longer be ghosts and fussy pictures.

2) HDTV (High Definition Television) is defined as high resolution programming in a widescreen format. HDTV has an aspect ratio of 16 by 9 (the older TV standard is 4 by 3) and having resolutions up to 1080 lines. STV (Standard Television) has 480 lines.

3) A broadcaster can offer one High Definition video programming or multiple Standard Definition programs within their allocated spectrum.

4) By March 2007 all televisions and other devices that can receive television signals (such as VCRs) will be required to have digital tuners.

5) DTV sets may not necessarily display programming in full HDTV format. Some integrated sets and monitors will display DTV in lower-resolution “enhanced definition” or “standard definition” format.

6) The US congress on February 1, 2006 passed a law setting Feb 18, 2009 as the target date that all broadcast TV stations will stop broadcasting Analog programming.
