One Nation Under CCTV

“What kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. Something huge, terrible, and glittering—a world of steel and concrete, of monstrous machines and terrifying weapons.” George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four


It’s been a while since I opened up Photoshop for a bit of cheeky image editing, so here’s the latest experimental result! This one depicts a very British dystopia. George Orwell remains an infinitely quotable chap for this sort of subject, and I highly recommend his thought-provoking literary works. ‘Nineteen Eighty Four’ was a truly visionary undertaking – it foreshadowed the concept of a surveillance society long before the development of modern day technologies that would make it all possible.

Britain is leading the world when it comes to CCTV. It has one and a half times as many surveillance cameras as communist China. The exact number of them in the UK is not known but an estimate in 2002 counted the figure at well over four million. The methodology of collecting such statistics is rather vague but reasonable research suggests that our country now has one camera for every 14 people.

The security infrastructure being created, whilst valid in many respects, presents a plethora of worrying possibilities. The coupling of CCTV cameras with facial recognition algorithms that track people through crowds, read registration plates and log all this data for future use is handy for current civil enforcement but leaves the door open for the state of the future to have profound levels of control over society.

The Digital TV Alternative – Internet TV Channels


A lot of nations generally in Europe are going through changes in the national television broadcasting signal as of this moment. The tendency is to renew the old fashioned analog television transmission and this alteration is concerning most television audiences who have to adapt in order to continue enjoying television. The analog transmission was broadcast in a single frequency while the new digital system is built on a discrete terrestrial solution permitting outstanding quality (HD) audio and pictures. The modern DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) signal is delivered in either a MPEG2 or MPEG4 format where MPEG4 is the latest.

A conversion in broadcasting signal, on the other hand, can’t be easily completed. It requires a great deal of technical and physical alterations behind the screen, but the most comprehensive effect to some extinct affects the television audience who will have to act on it to enjoy the digital television.

This paper will help you decide if you need to do something and which options you have.

First of all, who is affected?

– Those making use of an old school antenna.

If you can count yourself amongst those, here is what you can (should) do in order to transform your television signal and prepare yourself for a TV revolution:

1.Buy a satellite antenna! This is maybe one of the most radical actions you can take, but might also be the best. After buying a satellite antenna you will no longer be dependent on any signal updates, as a matter of fact, you will not ever agin have to be bothered with it. The satellite system is something very different and independent so when the national television corporation decides to modernize its system in the coming years you will not be affected. Shifting to a satellite, also opens a new world of channels, where you can choose from a larger range of television channels from all over the globe like for an example BBC, CNN, TV2 Sport and Fox.

2.Shifting to a cable dependent TV network. Though this option often times is limited to people who live in bigger building blocks with predecided solutions. This alternative would resolve your problem.

3.Fibernet. Not an option for most people, but certainly a splendid solution.

4.Broadband. You can use your broadband IP connection as a television broadcasting source. This system is digital as a standard and it is actually possible to exploit it on your television.

5.Obtain a brand new flat screen television. The majority new televisions have internal digital receivers; the single concern you should be aware of is the possibility of them not being MPEG4 compatible. If they only support MPEG2 you can end up having to update again later on possibly with an external converter.

6.Internet TV. It is something many are unaware of, but you can see lots of television channels on the net? Many national television companies also publish live on the internet.

7.Quit the TV! This might not be the first choice for the majority of TV audience, but is added here to demonstrate the significance of the matter. If you do not take action you WILL lose your television signal. It is not like in the old days when a poor signal meant hazy images, the modern days are harsh, now it is all or nothing.

8.Purchase a DVB T Tuner. This option is the natural solution for many in many states. A DVB T Tuner also called a Digital Video Broadcasting Terrestrial is an external TV transmission transformer, allowing old televisions to publish high definition pictures. It does not need any large antenna or other expensive gear, the DVB T tuner is a little container you connect to and position besides your television and then you are all set. This is because of that the most cost efficient alternative for many. The only drawback is that you will need one DVB T tuner for every TV in your house.

We hope you could use the content given and that you are now better suited to take a well informed decision. The single thing left for you to do is to take action and do something about this minor annoyance before you are met with a black screen.
