The transmission of television signals in a digital form. Current television is sent out as analog signals, but future television is probably going to be digitally distributed, much like electronic mail and other forms of data communication today.
An emerging technology for transmitting and receiving broadcast television signals. DTV provides clearer resolution and improved sound quality.
DTV. The technology enabling the terrestrial transmission of television programs as data.
Digital TV is the umbrella term encompassing High-definition Television and several other applications, including Standard Definition Television, datacasting, multicasting and interactivity.
Encompasses HDTV, or high-definition television, which is a set of standards for video and audio-signal quality.
Television delivered and displayed using computer code (digital technology).
DTV is a broadcast standard, which will ultimately replace the analog television broadcast signal we receive today. The new picture format offered by DTV allows for a high-resolution and wide-screen presentation. Digital TV will require new television receivers as well as new broadcast facilities.
The new standard for television watching. Digital uses progressive and interlaced scan, features more lines of resolution, and offers a much clearer and stable picture able to quickly decipher fast, moving images. All stations are required to make a full transition to digital by December 31, 2006.
Digital TV is the umbrella term encompassing all audio and video transmission utilizing digital data streams. Digital television could be said to include high definition television, standard definition television and other applications, including datacasting, multicasting and interactivity.
Over-the-air or cable television that uses a compressed digital format for transmission. Digital television supports HDTV, or high-definition television, and/or additional channels that can be transmitted in the same bandwidth as a single channel analog signal.
The new broadcast technology, approved by the FCC, which is scheduled to replace the analog NTSC (United States) television signal transmitted and received today. Digital television (DTV) provides high-definition digital television (HDTV) with more than twice the picture resolution of existing analog television, as well as a 16:9 aspect ratio (wide screen) and theater-quality 5.1 channel surround sound. The transition to DTV has required TV broadcasters to install new digital production and broadcast facilities, and requires the upgrade of television sets and/or other consumer electronics equipment to accommodate digital transmissions.
A generic term that describes any of several systems capable of delivering digital video signals. High Definition ( HDTV), Intermediate Definition ( IDTV), Enhanced-Definition ( EDTV) and standard definition (SDTV) are some of the systems. See: HDTV, IDTV, EDTV, SDTV.
Refers to all formats of digital television, including high definition television (HDTV), and standard definition television (SDTV). Also referred to as ATV (advanced TV).
A new technology for transmitting and receiving broadcast television signals. DTV provides clearer resolution and improved sound quality.
transmitting a broadcast signal by encoding it as 0s and 1s—the digital code used in computers. DTV can be compressed to provide four, five, or more channels in the same bandwidth required for one channel of the current standard television, better sound, and about five times more picture information (picture elements, or pixels) than conventional television.
The US system for over-the-air broadcasting gives stations 18 options in signal format, six of which are designated as true High Definition.
(DTV) The umbrella term for the new broadcasting system adopted by the Federal Communications Commission in 1996. Analog television, which was developed in the 1940s, receives one continuous electronic signal. In contrast, DTV works on the same principle as a computer or a digitally recorded compact disc. It uses binary code, a series of ones and zeros, rather than a continuous signal.
Refers to transmitting a broadcast signal by encoding it as 0s and 1s - the digital binary code used in computers. DTV can provide high quality programming (HDTV) or provide four, five or more channels in the same bandwidth required for one channel of the current standard television. Calculators, computers, compact discs, and the Internet are examples of digital technology.
Refers to transmitting a broadcast signal by encoding it as zeros and ones, the digital binary code used in computers. DTV can provide higher quality video and audio or provide four, five, or more channels in the same bandwidth required for one analog channel. In addition to picture and sound, digital broadcasts can transmit large amounts of data (see Datacasting).()
Digital video broadcast standard adopted by the FCC to replace the analog NTSC format; digital television standard composed of 18 formats including 6 high definition (HDTV) formats and 12 standard definition (SDTV) formats (see HDTV and SDTV).
Refers to transmitting a broadcasting signal by encoding it as zeroes and ones - the digital code used in computers. DTV can be compressed to provide four, five, or more channels in the same bandwidth required for one channel of the current standard television. Calculators, computers, compact discs and the Internet are examples of digital technology.
Digital television (DTV) is a telecommunication system for broadcasting and receiving moving pictures and sound by means of digital signals, in contrast to analog signals used by analog (traditional) TV. DTV uses digital modulation data, which is digitally compressed and requires decoding by a specially designed television set or a standard receiver with a set-top box.
