The article focuses on the challenges made by the compressed video technology to television broadcasters in the U.S. One of its requirement is an increasing tendency to handle bit streams in compressed form which minimizes the quality-compromising decompressing and recompression stages. This also brought the notion of bit stream splicing, where two compressed bit streams are concatenated during production. Through splicing, broadcasters can better understand how video can be affected by such.
