In September 1983, when we launched TV Technology
the Internet had not yet become an international communication phenomenon,
cable was still in its infancy and satellite was characterized by those huge
C-band dishes, which were still mostly found in rural communities. Since then,
we’ve seen the evolution of HDTV, high-power analog TV has transitioned
to digital, and TV has gone mobile in a big way.
Over the past 30 years, TV Technology
has covered the most
important developments in the technology that has most affected the broadcast
industry. In honor of our 30th anniversary next month, we’re
conducting a poll among our readers about the evolution of television
technology during this time span.
If you’re a member of the TV Technology
Linkedin, you can vote here

Linkedin or don’t want to join the group, please send an email to

Feel free to share your thoughts about your choice and if you think
we’ve left out the most important choice, tell us why. The poll will
be open until Sept. 5.
Results will be reported in the Sept. 18 anniversary issue.
