High Definition Information Systems. Hearings before the Subcommittee on Technology and Competitiveness of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. U.S. House of Representatives, One Hundred Second Congress, First Session (May 14, 21, 1991).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.
The report of these two hearings on high definition information systems begins by noting that they are digital, and that they are likely to handle computing, telecommunications, home security, computer imaging, storage, fiber optics networks, multi-dimensional libraries, and many other local, national, and international systems. (It is noted that the Office of Science and Technology's National Critical Technologies Panel recognized the importance of the components of high definition systems when high definition imaging and displays, sensors and signaling processing and data storage and peripherals all made its list of the 22 most important technologies for future competitiveness and national security.) This transcript of the hearings includes testimony and prepared statements by eight witnesses: (1) Robert Kahn, the Corporation for National Research Initiatives; (2) David Staelin, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; (3) Clark E. Johnson, Consultant; (4) William E. Glenn, Florida Atlantic University; (5) Robert Sanderson, Eastman Kodak Company; (6) Alan R. Blatecky, MCNC; (7) John W. Lyons, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), accompanied by Robert Hebner, NIST, and Thomas P. Stanley, Federal Communications Commission (FCC); and (8) Michael L.
