The article discusses broadcasting technology. Digital television has enjoyed a long gestation period from its bold and brash introduction a decade ago, in 1990s. For a myriad reasons, the availability of High Definition Tele Vision (HDTV) was delayed and on-air launch dates slipped forward. But consumer demand is rapidly accelerating. And with a dramatically increased level of sports programming, hi-def is here to stay. Though it took a while to reach the public, broadcasters have not been idle. The key to any successful technical installation is a properly conceived and executed technical infrastructure.
