(November 21, 2012) The 40-year history of high definition television technology is traced from initial studies in Japan, through its development in Europe, and then to the United States, where the first all-digital systems were implemented. Details are provided about advances in HDTV technology in Australia and Japan, Europe’s introduction of HDTV, Brazil’s innovative use of MPEG-4 and China’s terrestrial standard.

The impact of HDTV on broadcast facility conversion and the influx of computer systems and information technology are described, as well as the contributions of the first entrepreneurial HD videographers and engineers. This thoroughly researched volume highlights several of the landmark high-definition broadcasts from 1988 onward, includes input gathered from more than 50 international participants, and concludes with the rollout of consumer HDTV services throughout the world.

Philip J. Cianci worked with HDTV systems at Philips Research USA and ESPN, was the editor of Broadcast Engineering magazine’s e-newsletter Transition to Digital from 2005 through 2007, and is the author of two books about television technology. He lives in Lake Peekskill, New York.

“The book has a broad range -- technology and business, technical testing and corporate politics, TV and broadcast infrastructure… its core is technical, with tables and diagrams…. it provides fun peeks into the behind-the-scene negotiations…, [and] at the engineers crashing to implement these new designs…”
