  • Implementing IS-15 Cooperative Efforts to Establish a Standard for Attaching CATV Decoders Directly to TV Receivers & VCRs

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):vii - ix
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (319 KB)

    For many years the cable TV industry and the consumer electronics existed, seemingly unaware of each other's existence. About four years ago there began a cooperative effort to solve problems of concern to both industries. The effort has consisted primarily of developing standards for attaching TV receivers and VCRs directly to the cable without the necessity of active adapters such as converters ...

    The decision to improve consumer interface with on-board vehicle systems in the new Buick Riviera presented many challenges. The major challenges were how to display the information and how to optimize the driver's interface with the display. Challenges were met with the development of an interactive and reconfigurable display system based on CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) and transparent membrane switch ... View full abstract»

  • A Proposal for a New High-Definition NTSC Broadcast Protocol

    This paper describes a new process referred to as HD- NTSC. This signal has all the appearances of a conventional NTSC signal, and can be edited, stored, transmitted, and received by conventional NTSC equipment. A receiver constructed to interpret the HD- NTSC protocol will be able to build an HD-NTSC image having substantially improved resolution in both the vertical and horizontal axes for those...

    Historically, the development of home video equipment and cable television services have proceeded along somewhat independent lines. The result is that consumers are presented with a bewildering variety of products which may or many not retain all of their features when connected to a particular cable system. View full abstract»

    Stereo television is developing in the CATV industry, after getting off to a somewhat slow start. We now examine the unique characteristics of a cable system which affect BTSC stereo transmission. Though the transportation mechanism itself is broadband and generally transparent to stereo, practices at the headend and at the subscribers' home have an effect on stereo transmission. While stereo is q... View full abstract»

    In order to develop new possibilities for HDTV (High Definition Television) field production, we proposed the electron optical combination of the MS (Magnetic-focus Electrostatic-deflection) type focusing and deflecting system with a diode-gun having ultra high resolution capability. On the basis of high voltage operation, which is advantageous to the improvement of resolution capability, the opti... View full abstract»

    In monitoring remote unmanned sites using a visual system, it is generally adequate to transmit low-resolution pictures. Also, it is not necessary to transmit every picture frame captured by the video camera. By reducing the bandwidth requirements of the image transmission, we can use the existing telephone network to transmit a frame within a time period which is acceptable for monitoring purpose...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1937 KB)

    A system for direct broadcasting by satellite is described which allows both a doubling of capacity without significant loss of quality compared with conventional broadcast TV and the option of trading the increased capacity in a compatible manner for enhanced definition and aspect ratio in the future. In order to achieve the necessary increase in bandwidth efficiency, two processes which exploit ... View full abstract»
