R&D in the HD Conversation on the Internet Blog
In Part 2 of the post the various reference systems we maintain, and development systems, are reviewed. The posts are well worth reading through if you're interested in this technology and would like to know more about the technical issues that impact upon the quality of the BBC's HD services. It's perhaps more important now than ever, since the BBC Trust approved the launch of BBC 1 in HD.
On Friday the Internet Blog carried a post from our own Phil Layton, head of our Digital Service Development section, on the technologies used by the BBC to provide surround sound services. Phil gives a good in depth description of the technical challenges which bar us from using the well known Dolby system for broadcasts.
