    HDTV: Technologies and Directions



Additional Information:

    High definition television (HDTV) is coming, but why are we interested? Twenty years ago, the initial motivation for HDTV was to provide higher resolution, wider aspect ratio consumer television. Now graphical interaction and presentation are important components of day-to-day computing, and high resolution computer graphics techniques have become fundamental tools for entertainment, science, and engineering. As a result, there is growing interest in the interplay among HDTV, computer graphics, and computing technologies.
    This panel presents the relationship of HDTV to computer graphics and computing, the interplay among underlying technologies, the potential for standards, and current and future directions for products and applications.
