    During the past few years engineers have been processing sampled TV signals in an effort to provide a better picture and provide more features than what present analog receivers can economically deliver. In addition, the continuing cost pressure puts manufacturers into the necessity of reducing component count and using automated assembly techniques. Two approaches have been used to accomplish the...

    Today's standard for digital audio recording in the consumer field is the compact disc (CD), where a stereo signal is sampled with fs = 44.1 kHz and quantized with 16 bits. This yields a net data rate of about 1.4 Mbit/sec, that can easily be recorded on an optical disc like the CD or on magnetic tape using the R-DAT signal format. View full abstract»

    A residential door phone camera system usually employs the use of a multi-wired cable, including a coaxial one, to connect the indoor and outdoor units. Concurrently, interphone systems generally use a pair of PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) insulated wires. Therefore, for the purpose of converting this interphone system cable (which is already installed) into cable for a TV door phone system, a method ... View full abstract»

    As part of its regulations governing obligations of cable television, the Federal Communications Commission has traditionally required carriage of local television broadcast stations. Recently, however, those rules were overturned on constitutional grounds.1 Subsequently, the Commission has drafted new rules with less stringent carriage requirements for an interim period of five years and no requi...

    We first proposed in 1983 a plan for standardization of in-house information distribution networks called Home Bus System (HBS) to realize effective Home Automation (HA) in the world. In the HBS, digital data of base-band, and audio- visual information of broad-band are transmitted on a single coaxial cable by frequency-division multiplex. In order to realize economical HA, a standard protocol for... View full abstract»

    The video descrambling portion of IS- 15, EIA MULTIPORT, can be compatible with present day RF Sync Suppression schemes. Industry consensus seems to indicate that for this standard to survive, a "phasing- in" period will be required. During this time, compatibility with RF Sync Suppressed scrambling is imperative. This scheme, in one form or another, is presently used by a majority of CATV plants.... View full abstract»

    This paper presents algorithms for extending the life of thermal array printheads. A major cause of thermal element fatigue is the uneven use of the print elements, which is due to the uneven dot distribution requirements in printing alphanumerics. To obtain a nearly uniform dot utilization an optimum algorithm for shifting the printed text was developed on a page basis. To this end, first, means ... View full abstract»
