Advantages of HDTV
High definition viewing has several advantages over traditional
Clarity: The digital signal is noise-free for a crystal clear
Sharpness. The HDTV picture is much sharper than standard
television. The highest resolution HDTV format offers approximately
2 million pixels compared to analog TV's ½ million pixels.
More pixels create sharper images.
Wide-screen format. Traditional TVs use a 4 by 3 aspect ratio.
The screen is 4 units wide by 3 units high. Movies use a much wider
picture, which leads to cropping (losing the sides of the picture)
when you view a movie on TV. HDTV uses a 16 by 9 aspect ratio, making
a wider picture. There is less cropping so you see more of the movie!
Digital sound. HDTV's digital audio sounds better than a standard
TV's sound, just like digital CDs sound better than tapes and radio.
All HDTV programs use Dolby Digital sound, the same sound used on
DVDs. This format transmits two to six channels of audio (depending
on the program). With these soundtracks driving 6 speakers, you can
create a movie theater experience right at home.
Channels 4, 5, 8 & 13 are broadcast in High
Definition (HD) to all
