The article discusses the effect of broadcast quality and tandem coding losses on perceived quality in the U.S. A knowledge in standardized test methodologies can significantly aid in understanding broadcast quality. Tandem coding losses occur when the coding errors in each system combine to generate larger errors. In determining the transmission error, one must listen to the pre-echo, a type of impairment that affects the sharpness and clarity of signals that are transient in nature.
