Improvements in Television Sound.
Untiedt, Theodore P.
Despite the many improvements which have been made in the television picture over the last 25 years of commercial broadcasting, improvements in television sound have lagged behind. Both the telephone company and broadcast equipment manufacturers have made great improvements in the field of audio which may be used to improve television sound. However, television receiver manufacturers are hesitant to make changes in the aural portions of the receiver because the extra cost could not be justified to set buyers. However, one of the Network Transmission Committees has drawn up specifications for a system that would combine audio and video. These specifications (the parameters of which are included here) would cause a great improvement in sound. Tests of other systems by the telephone company, by the British Broadcasting Corporation, and by Japan's public broadcasting system also promise great improvement. (JK)
