    Advanced Television for the United States: Status and Issues

Abstract:


    An advisory commission on advanced television service (ACATS), appointed by the FCC, is recommending deployment of a new television system that includes interlace, 59.94 and 60 Hz, and non-square pixel spacing. These parameters are fundamentally incompatible with modern computer graphics displays, which do not use interlace, and which operate at display rates exceeding 70 Hz. The panel discusses and debates these issues.
