Broadcast quality used to be considered an engineering
standard of excellence. What once passed for broadcast
quality now seems pretty poor by the standards of what can
be achieved today. The ultra-high-definition pictures from
the Olympics look amazing, even in high definition. Yet we
also see examples of video on television that exhibit
obvious artifacts of over compression, poor scaling, and
aliasing, to the extent that it can be uncomfortable to
watch. Adherence to standards and specifications is no
longer a guarantee of subjective quality. Who cares? Whose
job is it at board level to care about quality control? It
is often unclear. Viewers rarely complain about the quality
of pictures but given the choice they notice these things.
Online video no longer needs to compromise on quality. It
can be better than what we are used to seeing on television. William Cooper Editor informitv Supported by an international network of industry
