NAB, MSTV partner with manufacturers to develop terrestrial digital-to-analog converter boxes

The Association for Maximum Service Television (MSTV) and the NAB have selected LG Electronics and Thomson to independently develop prototype high-quality, low-cost terrestrial digital converter boxes to receive digital signals on conventional analog televisions.

Jointly funded by MSTV and NAB with development support from Thomson and LG Electronics, these prototypes will serve as blueprints for future products to ensure that the more than 70 million analog TVs relying exclusively on terrestrial broadcast signals will continue to receive free over-the-air TV service when analog broadcasts end.
