A Summary of Technical Problems Associated With Broadband Cable Teleservices Development. A Survey of Technical Requirements for Broadband Cable Teleservices; Volume One.
McManamon, P. M.; Utlaut, W. F.
The results of a survey of cable television (CATV) and related technological industries are summarized. In this, the first of a series of seven reports, attention is focused upon some major technical factors which need to be considered in order that a transition from the technical state of today's cable television and services to new teleservices may be effected. The relationship between systems and teleservices is explored and technical summaries are presented in the areas of measurements, standards or engineering practices, new applications of technology, system design analysis, software, and teleservices. The ensuing volumes will discuss: subscriber terminals and network interface (volume 2), signal transmission and delivery between head-end and subscriber terminals (volume 3), system control facilities (volume 4), system interconnections (volume 5), and the use of computers in CATV two-way communications systems (volume 6). The last report in the series will consist of a selected bibliography. (Author/PB)
