The UK System for Digital Sound with Terrestrial Television

Document Thumbnail

The UK Government has approved the joint BBC/IBA specification of a transmission standard for digital stereo sound with terrestial television. This system, which was developed by BBC engineers during the past four years, conveys two high-quality digitally-coded sound signals along with the picture and mono f.m. sound signals of the UK television System I. Extensive laboratory and over-air tests have proved the compatibility and ruggedness of this system, and optimised the choices of modulation system and baseband coding method. Broadcasters in the Nordic countries have adapted the UK system for use with television Systems B and G.
