Paper Abstract

The planned transition from analog to digital television will affect most consumers before the next decade is over. Once analog broadcasting has been replaced with digital broadcasting, consumers will be required to purchase set top boxes or new digital TV's. While the transition has already started, there is much confusion in the industry as how to implement digital television. The HDTV standard specifies how digital TV signals are to be broadcast and encoded but many typical broadcast operations have been overlooked. Also at this time, industry is looking towards computer-TV convergence as a way to make TV entertainment more interactive and less passive. This paper addresses what role MPEG-4 may play in the upcoming DTV evolution and how it can solve problems not addressed by the MPEG-2 standard.
