TV History – History of Televisoin and Analog to Digital Transition


CONSUMER AWARENESS IS UP 80 PERCENT SINCE 2006, SAYS CEA Government and Industry Education Campaign Ensuring a Successful Transition On June, 2009, the nation will switch over to digital broadcasting. Analog TV will be a thing of the past. The promise of an all-digital world is at hand. Consumer awareness of the transition to digital television (DTV) grew 80 percent since 2006, according to new market research released by the consumer electronics association (CEA). CEA also released new survey results that predict the success of the national telecommunication and information administration (NTIA)’s converter box coupon program which launched in January and was prominently featured at the 2008 international CES. Converter boxes are only needed for consumers who watch over-the-air broadcasts on an analog television. CEA’s survey found only 11 percent of television households – approximately 13 million – are solely over-the-air households, indicating that NTIA has sufficient converter box coupons to meet potential demand.

What is DTV Transition?:

Digital TV

Digital Television (DTV) is an advanced broadcasting technology that will transform your television viewing experience. DTV enables broadcasters to offer television with better picture and sound quality. It can also offer multiple programming choices, called multicasting, and interactive capabilities.

What is DTV?

Digital television (DTV) is an innovative type of over-the-air broadcasting technology that enables TV stations to provide dramatically clearer pictures and better sound quality.

DTV is more efficient and more flexible than the traditional way of broadcasting known as analog. For example, DTV makes it possible for stations to broadcast multiple channels of free programming all at once (called multicasting), instead of broadcasting one channel at a time. DTV technology can also be used to deliver future interactive video and data services that analog technology can’t provide.

What is HD Radio™?

HD Radio is an upgrading of the way AM and FM radio signals are transmitted, from analog to digital signals. Sounds neat. But what does that mean for us listeners?

HD Radio technology allows broadcasters to transmit a high-quality digital signal. For listeners who have an HD Radio receiver, the benefits are:

  • FM radio with near CD-quality sound
  • AM radio that sounds as good as traditional FM
  • No more static, pops, crackles or fades
  • Transmission of additional information, such as song titles and artists
  • Increased listening options with multicasting
  • Tagging a song for later purchase

    The basic mysql syntax (which can be launched from Phpmyadmin Sql Tab) is this:

    UPDATE table SET field_name = REPLACE(field_name, ‘tony’, ‘TONY’)

    For example, to change an old url link to a new one in the body of forum posts:

    UPDATE smf_messages SET body = REPLACE(body, ‘myoldurl.com’, ‘mynewurl.com’)
