Technology of Cable Television.
Cable Television Information Center, Washington, DC.
The technology of cable television (CATV) is one area in which local community officials need to develop knowledge so that their decisions about the structure of CATV within the community will be informed. Thus, this paper is designed to familiarize local decision makers with the technological aspects of cable communications, to isolate specific questions which local officials must consider as they plan for CATV in their communities, and to note and explain options available to franchising authorities in dealing with those questions. Section One of the report describes cable technology past, present and future; the second section considers issues involved in systems design technical performance standard, and the implementation of future technology.
