The idea that television was evolving towards HDTV is no longer uppermost in everybody's mind. Does the viewer want quality or multiple choices is the current question to be answered. The general view is that although viewers can perceive improved picture quality it doe... View full abstract»

Ghost cancellation, a spin-off development of the PALplus project, seems set to be introduced to the consumer market during 1996.

    The present status of HDTV developments in Japan is described. In Japan the accelerated domestic penetration of HDTV has started because of the increased duration of HDTV broadcasting and the rapid reduction in the price of TV receivers. High quality standards converters have already been developed which convert HDTV signals between the 1125/60 and 1250/50 standards. There is no practical limitati... View full abstract»

Since the ISO-standard MPEG 2 was agreed we have been working on a new version of a baseband unit including coding and multiplexing. The video algorithm utilises features of MPEG 2 with Divine-specific optimised motion estimation, decision criteria and regulation to achieve high picture quality. The a... View full abstract»

Thus systems were developed, based largely on analogue signal transmission ideas, where the signal transmitted was basically an analogue representation of the vi... View full abstract»
