    The Direct Address System employs a unique remote control that features on-screen display of the selected channel number and the time-of-day. In addition the user selects channels by addressing the system with the channel number desired, therefore, eliminating the necessity of having to sequence through a series of undesired channels, as is the case with most channel selection systems.

    An objective was set at the very beginning of this project to develop a shadow mask color picture tube which would be less costly to produce. The tube could have no sacrifice in performance when compared to a present day shadow mask color tube. There were three main avenues pursued to attain this objective. One was to reduce the number of parts to produce the tube. The second was to reduce the cos... View full abstract»

    More and more information may be demanded by people for better living and business. In the area of broadcasting, it would be necessary to offer additional program materials to suite the variety and individuality of home viewers by more efficient and effective communication than conventional ways within limited bandwidth.

    At first sight optical readout of videosignal stored on a disc seems to be a difficult and critical task due to what is paradoxically one of its most interesting features: no mechanical contact between the readout "stylus" and the information carrying surface of the disc. Since the readout "stylus" used here is a light beam, it cannot be simply mechanically guided by a groove, the way it is accomp... View full abstract»

    This paper presents considerations involved in the choice of a coding system for an optical video disc system. It thereby embraces the recording process, the optical stylus, the associted servo systems, and the disc properties. It is shown that a 30 minute high quality television program with two separate sound channels can be compressed to a 30cm diameter disc format while allowing adequate toler... View full abstract»

    From the beginning the aim of MCA' s videodisc development was to make a complete system for playing pre-recorded color programs over a home TV. Such a system was developed and was demonstrated publicly in late 1972, when a video player played a replicated disc into several standard TV sets. View full abstract»

    The entertainment function of the Philips and MCA Optical Videodisc System (Fig. 1 has been established by numerous public demonstrations, r2y3l4t and various authors, 6' 7' 8. The freeze frame and random access capabilities of this optical system enables extremely effective storage of special purpose information. Examples of such special purpose applications employing the Philips consumer player ... View full abstract»

  • Selectivity Requirements to Eliminate Adjacent Channel Interference on Multi-Channel Catv Systems

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):339 - 348
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4506 KB)

    TV receiver and transmitter characteristics required for the elimination of visible adjacent channel interference effects are discussed. The interference mechanisms involved are explained. Effects caused by the upper adjacent channel signal are different in nature from those of a lower adjacent channel signal. It can be shown that the suppression of upper channel interference needs little extra ef... View full abstract»

    The design of a wideband feedforward amplifier in the frequency range 40-300 MHz is described. It is shown that the technology is now available to push the output level over 1 volt for a 12 channel NCTA crossmodulation ratio of -60 dB, or over 1/ 2 volt for a 35 channel NCTA crossmodulation ratio of -60 dB. The triple beat and second order distortion are typically -80 dB down. at the output level ... View full abstract»
