NAB Issues Digital Transition Principles

Television broadcast industry "reaffirms its commitment to an expedited transition to digital television" By Charlie White
In an announcement, the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) listed what it calls Digital Transition Principles. The announcement was as follows:

"The television broadcast industry reaffirms its commitment to an expedited transition to digital television and the return of analog spectrum. Moreover, a successful transition must retain protection of consumers and the viewing audience as its ultimate goal.

"In an effort to advance the transition in a positive way, the NAB Television Board of Directors directs NAB staff to expeditiously pursue innovative solutions to the following goals:

--Inclusion of over-the-air DTV tuners in every new television set

--Comprehensive interoperability of DTV sets with cable systems

--Establishing secure full signal carriage rights for broadcasters' DTV signals on cable and satellite systems

"In accomplishing these objectives, NAB should aggressively seek new and innovative ideas including single versus dual carriage options."
