EDN Blog: Digital TV Disaster Coming
Wednesday, EDN Technical Editor Paul Rako posted comments from Ricardo Salaverry and Robert Getsla on the “Digital TV disaster” on his blog.

The comments discuss how patent issues affected the ATSC standard and some of the problems broadcasters face with the DTV transition, including interference from white space devices and tuner performance. Longtime TV Technology writer Charlie Rhodes’ articles are mentioned. You may or may not agree with all the comments, but it is interesting reading.

You may also find Digital Dan's diatribe on the potential delay in the DTV transition interesting or at least amusing! Thanks to Frank Torbert and Sterling Davis for forwarding this YouTube link.

Your comments and story leads are always appreciated! Drop me a note at dlung@transmitter.com.
