I went a few years back when they were still "The New PL" and they had a HDTV demonstration saying they would be HD in a few years... I wonder whatever happened to thatCertainly a good opportunity to present questions regarding the digital conversion, as well as HD upgrades.
Thanks Emerald_Boar for posting /A\ London's DTV plans. I planned to attend this weekend's open house, but I was unable to go.Good News,
CFPL will be flashcutting on Aug 31. CTV WILL NOT be using ch 57 to test digital on. But A London might flashcut early.
The ERP will be 14kW. (Which is +4 dB higher then the database.) Also CTV may go with a multi channel setup with the primary channel being 1080i (SD?). <: At the very least multiplexing has been discussed.
My understanding is 720p, 1080i, and 1080p are all HD resolutions (but sometimes stations feed 4:3 programs in their HD feed, which leave black bars on the left and right, but it's still HD resolution).Is 1080i HD or SD? I was thinking that 1080i was HD. But according to the Engineer is it not.
AFAIK, the CBC master control for all stations is in Toronto.I checked out the CBC open house in NL. Sounds like /A\'s was a lot better. I didn't think many people would be interested in the technical details (like I am) and I was right. CBC's tour included a quick interaction with radio host, walk through the news room, then the grand finale downstairs to meet the weather guy. I was hoping to see more technical things like radio master control, etc... The staff were very generous and gave out some freebies and fact sheets. It was nice to see inside the building.
