The article discusses the significance of single-frequency networks (SFN) on the development of broadcast coverage in New York City. Synchronization is the first step in assembling SFN systems, where the area uses a VSB Frame Initialization Packet (VFIP) inserter that signals the exciter to synchronize all processes to a known point in time. The system yields signal strength and quality improvements at almost all locations and offers an option to a single transmitter site.
