I was about to post that they did on another web site but didn't want to be wrong.


This is all I found on the issue from atsc.org .

"On December 24, 1996, the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted the major elements of the ATSC Digital Television (DTV) Standard (A/53). The ATSC DTV Standard has been adopted by the governments of Canada (November 8, 1997), South Korea (November 21,1997), Taiwan (May 8, 1998), and Argentina (October 22, 1998)."

So what did Japan and Australia adopt? What other standards are out there?


Also I saw quite a few different, I guess companies listed as being members of ATSC, that were from a number of different countries. Such as China, Korea (N or S?) Mexico and UK. What about these countries as well.

Australia has chosen a flavor of COFDM that includes HDTV bitrates. Japan is looking into their own completely incompatible system (ISDB I think).

Australia adopted ATSC standard for HDTV except for OTA modulation. They chose COFDM instead of 8VSB. Otherwise everything is identical.

Japan HDTV standard uses the same video resolutions as ATSC but for audio they use AAC which is even more compressed than Dolby Digital. For OTA they will be using ISDB-T which is based on COFDM but suppose to be better. BTW, OTA broadcasting in Japan will not start until 2004.

Get the point? If not, more severe action will be taken.
