Paper Abstract

The Grand Alliance was formed to define and contrast a system for the delivery of HDTV using terrestrial broadcast channels. This system is composed of the best components from previously competing systems before the FCC. MPEG-2 syntax is used with novel encoding techniques to deliver a set of video scanning formats for a variety of applications. This paper describes the important features and concepts embodied in the Grand Alliance system.
