Comparison of Systems[edit]

Does anyone have a top-level comparison of the various systems. A table may serve, follones by more detailed explanation of the differences ... followed perhaps on a historical perspective on the behind-the-scenes machinations. There was an idea once upon a time that there would be a universal (global) HDTV standard ... does anyone have a good handle of how this patchwork quilt emerged from the good intent to agree on a global HDTV system?Enquire (talk) 14:39, 6 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is a series of recorded video tests done in Peru available on Youtube. In short, ISDB-T is the only one that works flawlessly in a moving car. Indoors, ISDB-T is the only one that works flawlessly when various appliances (Hair dryer, Washing machine) are turned on / off. This matches Brazilian papers about similar tests done in 2000.

DVB-T in Germany[edit]

"now available to 100% of the population" Yes 100% of all german television towers send DVB-T signals.

But DVB-T has a shorter range than terresrial analog tv. Most germans can use DVB-T but in some regions the reception isn't strong enougth. Even in some parts of berlin. --95.88.250.251 (talk) 20:48, 15 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why is Brazil out?[edit]

Why was Brazil taken off from "Analogue to digital transition by country" section?

Country: Brazil Official launch: 2007-12-02 Start of closedown: - End of closedown: 2006-06-29 System: ISDB-T International Interactive: Ginga Compression: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.61.235.90 (talk) 23:04, 5 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Section on Republic of Ireland[edit]

This section is very poorly written, and is very confusing to understand. Aside from numerous spelling and grammatical mistakes, the style and composure of the section makes it very difficult and hard to read. I find myself getting lost mid paragaph.

australia?[edit]

why is aus not there, we started the close down a while back and have tonnes of multichannels —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gargabook (talkcontribs) 04:06, 27 September 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cuba can be added to list of "not intending to switch"[edit]

On the map, North Korea is shown in blue as not intending to switch to digital. We can also include Cuba as well. Switching their population of 10+ million over to digital would be almost impossible. There are no electronics companies even established in Cuba - everything is brought into the country on the grey market. Therefore there is no way for the government to roll out digital TV in people's homes without the private sector (STB manufacturers) involved. Davez621 (talk) 00:53, 31 August 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Southern Africa[edit]

South Africa has not switched over. The pic is incorrect. Still probably 99% analog. Who did the pic, do they know what they are talking about??? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 196.25.56.228 (talk) 12:51, 27 August 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Table problem[edit]

The table of DTT transitions timeline-wise is completely messed up. Dates are not all exact nor in proper form, some of them under the wrong columns, and I tried removing an extra column to the right, etc.

Mind if we use the day-month-year format for all dates in that table?

Analog Switchoff (abbreviation)[edit]

The abbreviation "ASO" for analog switchoff is not formally recognized anywhere. It should therefore be deleted, as should "DSO," in both this and the Digital television transition article. algocu (talk) 17:21, 29 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]


better quality images[edit]

Define "better". When the signal quality is good, it could be (in some unclear sense, especially if you aren't used to update your tv set as you do with pants). But when it is not, analogic wins, since I was able to watch things even with snowy effect and white-noise background sounds. With digital, it isn't possible anymore: the quality of the signal must be good (enough not to trump errors correction algorithms), otherwise all you want to do is to turn it off. I see DTT as one of those technologies which most consumers really didn't feel to be necessary nor requested for, but that were pushed for some other reasons. Maybe broadcasters are happier, I don't know; and also decoders and tv sellers: I was able to watch "old tv" with a monochromatic tv set from my father's youth, 35 years of my life or so, plus the years I wasn't born yet but the tv set was already purchased; now, only 10 years later or so, there's already a need for an update, which means spending money... if you think you need tv, of course).
