Paper Abstract

The studies of HDTV systems in Europe have been driven by the concern of a compatible evolution from conventional definition TV to HDTV. This approach has led to the D2- HDMAC packet broadcasting system which is now under development and compatible with the D2-MAC packet system. For professional (contribution) applications digital codecs able to transmit HDTV over 140 Mbit/s links have also been developed and a research program was launched several years ago to address the specific issue of TV and HDTV distribution over digital optical fiber networks such as the future B-ISDN. Again, a compatible approach has been favored for this application with the goal of developing a multiresolution coding system enabling simultaneous decoding of signals of various resolutions. In this paper, the results achieved so far in designing the relevant systems are presented.
