How Digital Cable TV Will Transform Your Viewing Experience


As of June, 2009 all television stations in the United States were required to transition from analog signal transmission to digital tv signal transmission. The U. S. Decision to demand a switchover to digital television follows those of ten European nations, beginning with Luxembourg in 2006. It is expected that Japan, in 2011, will be the first Asian country to make the complete conversion to digital.

The U. S. Congress’ decision to mandate the switchover from analog to all-digital television was based primarily on two factors. First, the government’s desire to free up precious broadcast bandwidth for those organizations concerned with public safety such as police and fire departments, and second, to provide viewers a better picture and sound experience. One other consequence of freed-up bandwidth is that some of it can be auctioned off by the government to companies which provide advanced wireless services.

As part of this mandate, Congress stipulated that starting March 1, 2007 all television receivers imported into the United States or manufactured in the U. S. Must have a digital tuner. Additionally, retailers selling analog-only receivers were required to inform consumers in a prominent fashion that the television being sold would require a digital converter box. To assist viewers who only had an analog set, the government made available coupons which could be exchanged for a converter boxes valued up to forty dollars.

The number of pixels displayed on the screen defines a television’s resolution. It is this attribute that provides the starkest contrast between analog and digital images. Whereas an analog image caps out at about 500 x 400 pixels(the number of discrete points on the screen), a digitally generated image can contain up to a whooping ten times that amount.

Multicasting is another advantage of digital television transmission. In an analog environment only one channel can be allocated to a chunk of bandwidth, whereas in a digital environment that same chunk can be divided into multiple channels. This provides television stations the opportunity to provide more programming to its viewers.

Interactive programming is another advantage of digital television. People subscribing to cable or satellite services will discover enhanced functionality. Example include movies-on-demand, text-messaging via the television’s remote to live television shows, and VCR-type choices such as pause, slow motion and fast forward.

When shopping for a digital television there are four types of televisions available to the consumer. Analog televisions, but these require a converter box, digital-ready sets which include the digital converter(or tuner) but do not offer high resolution, HDTV-ready units which do provide high resolution but may not be equipped with a converter, and finally an integrated HDTV set which provides both high resolution and a tuner. Shoppers cite cost and functionality as their prime decision criteria.

The government’s decision to usher in digital tv has had a profound effect. Improved picture quality, enhanced sound, and added features and functionality represent just the start of the digital television revolution. As the technology advances, expect to see even greater improvements.

Ah, the joy of photography! (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/28465J).

You can read a blog relating to these images here www.twmuseums.org.uk/engage/blog/turners-saved-my-marriage/.

Tyne & Wear Archives is very fortunate to hold the photographic negatives of the firm Turners (Photography) Ltd. The collection contains many remarkable images commissioned by local firms during the second half of the Twentieth Century. The Turners collection also includes images taken by the firm to promote their own business and this set shows a short series of images taken in March 1962 to promote the sale of cameras in their shops.

They tell the story of a bored husband, his mind numbed by television, and his worried wife. Looking for inspiration, the man passes by a Turners shop window and discovers the wonder of photography. At once his happiness returns and matrimonial harmony is restored.

We’ve no record of the captions used by Turners to accompany these images so we’ve used a bit of artistic licence and created our own. Maybe you can suggest alternatives.

Install Digital Television to improve your home theater experience


A busy lifestyle, work, family, and kids keep us occupied throughout the day, and also at night. There are occasional vacations happening. But they happen ‘occasionally’. So you can imagine that there’s not even an inch of enjoyment throughout the day. However, if there’s one little thing that can make us smile, I guess that would be watching a comedy flick on the TV. For some of us, it’s checking the news headlines of the day and for others it may be watching a good movie. Choices vary, but there’s something that remains constant. It’s watching TV.

Relaxing while watching television is something we all do, don’t we? And it’s supposed to be one of the best things we do in the course of a day. The same goes for our kids. They love those superhero cartoons. You can’t take that away from them. But what if watching television is moved to a whole new level. Yeah, that’s easily possible if digital satellite television set-up is installed.

Home theatre experience can be improved if a set top box is used. This way, you can even bring down the monthly rental charges. Once you become a digital TV user, you are only required to pay for the channels you apply for. There are no extra charges, and of course, no hidden charges. And the best part is that you can even change the subscription package whenever you feel like. This is something you will never get if you are using the local cable TV network.

Installing a digital television set-up is rather easy. You can choose a service provider and make an application, mentioning the package you are interested in. The digital TV service provider will send officials to your place. These guys will come and tell all that you want to know. They will also give details on how much you can end up saving each month once you switch over to digital TV. See, that’s simple!

Installing digital television will actually improve your home theatre experience in multiple ways. You can treat yourself to better quality sound, picture, reception, and you can also request the service provider to air your favourite movies. That comes as a bonus, doesn’t it?

A digital antenna needs to be installed somewhere on your terrace when you become a digital television subscriber. But you don’t have to worry about this. The antenna will be installed by pros, who will be sent to your place once you make an application for digital TV subscription. Maintenance will be done by the same pros. So even if you are faced with bad reception, which may happen due to a defective antenna, just let the service provider know about it. I am sure that will be good enough.

With digital satellite TV installed in your home, you can stay away from movie theatres but enjoy the same feeling right in your home. The dollars saved can be used to buy some beer, which you can have when you enjoy a movie with family and friends.

James Taylor is a home theatre installer, based in Perth. He’s been in the business for the past 15 years.

Install tv wall mounting set-up to improve Digital Television Experience


Watching a John Wayne classic on LED screen is probably one of the best experiences one can ever come across. However, an LED screen is just one ingredient which can offer a great movie experience. There are other factors which can’t be ignored at any cost. Digital TV set-up happens to be the most important factor out of the lot.

Opting for digital television service is probably one of the wisest things any home owner can invest in. Besides offering movie theatre-like experience, a digital set top box ensures users are able to reduce monthly TV consumption bill. And the effect shows up right from the first month of its implementation.

We can go a mile ahead in improving the overall television viewing experience if we install the TV wall mounting set-up. This arrangement coupled with digital satellite connection will offer the same feel that we usually get in a movie theatre. The favourite Hollywood flicks can be enjoyed over some chilled beer, right in the comfort of the warm and cosy living room. Wall TV mounting set-up is what you can come across in most urban home/ apartments throughout the US and large parts of the APAC region. Primarily, it’s the convenience that drives more and more home owners to accept such layouts. And then, it allows great space utilisation, as well.

Adding a TV wall mounting set-up is how you can improvise further, after becoming a digital satellite television user. I feel that it offers a certain amount of comfort to the viewers, giving them a taste of true theatre-like experience. Installing the digital TV antenna is an important part of the overall project. This has to be done by trained pros, only. Don’t fancy your chances by trying to install the digital television satellite antenna on your roof without any professional help. Be rest assured, you are going to make a royal mess out of it. And if the antenna’s not installed properly, the entire effort will be utterly useless.

I have been teaming up with a bunch of technicians to ensure everything’s just fine with my digital TV antenna. Costs involved in maintaining the whole set-up has been well within my budget. As for the TV wall mounting set-up, it requires no real maintenance. Once installed with reasonable precision, it will last you for several years together.

TV wall mounting set-ups perfectly complement digital satellite television systems. Better pictures, better sound, and an overall amazing experience are what the users get each time they switch on their TV. These set-ups are also perfect for single-room apartments, especially if we have a bachelor living in there. That’s exactly what holds true for me.

I have installed the TV wall mounting set-up around last Easter, it was when I became a digital television user. And I must confess I have been extremely satisfied with the service and the overall experience. I have also been able to bring down the monthly bill by a few dollars each month.

James Taylor is a lifestyle home remodeler, based in Perth. He has recently installed a TV wall mounting set-up in his apartment. Undoubtedly, he’s very satisfied with the kind of service he’s enjoying at the moment.
