As the name suggests, digital TV means that digital signal is used in all links from shooting, editing, making film source to studio transmitting, transmitting and receiving.

From the perspective of video effect, due to the difference of image quality and bandwidth occupied by channel transmission, digital TV is also divided into several different standards, namely: HDTV (high definition TV), SDTV (standard definition TV) and ldtv (ordinary definition TV). From the perspective of visual effect, HDTV has the highest requirement, that is, the horizontal resolution of TV programs and receiving equipment should reach more than 1000 lines (the resolution can reach 1920 lines) × Its image quality can reach or approach the level of 35mm wide screen film.
