Digital terrestrial television (DTT):
An inevitable development
The future of television is largely in digital terrestrial broadcasting. Britain is forging the way in this new field, but other countries in Europe and North America, as well as Japan, are bound to follow soon. Most of the European development was carried out under the DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) Project launched in 1993 and approved by almost 200 signatories from 25 countries in 1995. The launching group consisted of representatives from industry, public and private broadcasters,tele-communicationss companies, research institutes and the European Commission. Because of this wide-ranging participation, the DVB Project has taken over the leading role in the introduction of digital television in Europe.
