Digital (DTV) Transition

DTV Around the World - Argentina’s DTV System – Technical Aspects (Part 4)

By Rodolfo La Maestra • Sep 23 2010, 4:35pm

In part 1, I offered an overall view. Part 2 covered an interview with a colleague TV engineer that is currently testing the new DTV system in Argentina (ISDB-T), with whom I collaborated over the past few years regarding how the standard was selected. Part 3 covered how the system is being implemented. This part 4 covers the technical aspects of that system, a better choice for Argentina and several other countries than the US system, although the selection was not technically guided.

DTV Around the World - Why Argentina Selected ISDB-T after Testing US’s ATSC (Part 2)

By Rodolfo La Maestra • Sep 9 2010, 3:07pm

This series of articles is about how terrestrial broadcast digital TV is being implemented around the world.

Part 1 offered an overall view. This part 2 covers an interview with a colleague TV engineer that is currently testing the new DTV system in Argentina (ISDB-T), with whom I collaborated over the past few years regarding how the standard was selected. Parts 3 and 4 will cover the technical aspects of that system, a better choice for Argentina and several other countries that use systems that differ from the US system, although the selection was not technically guided.

Auto-stereoscopic 3DTV (3D Without Glasses) - Going Backwards in Image Quality for the sake of Depth? (Part 2)

By Rodolfo La Maestra • Sep 7 2010, 3:05pm

The HDTV industry currently has consumer 3D panels and projectors that require 3D active shutter or passive glasses. 3D depth may be attractive but in one way or another they all sacrifice original resolution, luminance or image quality with new artifacts for the sake of displaying a 3D image.

Even 3D Blu-ray displayed with active shutter glasses looses luminance because only one eye is seeing the corresponding image at the time, in addition to the darkness created by the 3D glasses.

Auto-stereoscopic 3DTV (3D Without Glasses) - Display Taiwan 2010 Hinted: Sooner than you think; (Part 1)

Display Taiwan 2010 took place recently in Taipei, China. The event entailed a very busy couple of days for me. The reason why I traveled so far from Washington D.C. was because I wanted to witness firsthand what Taiwan was actually doing in the area of large screens 3D auto-stereoscopic (no-glasses 3D). I saw prototypes, commercially available displays, and new developments of advanced technology that made the trip and effort worthwhile.
