For the 2008 convention, NAB is expected to unveil two new proposals of transmission standards for continental US television: ANALTAL, and DIGALOG. Combining innovative features of wideband analog signals with the lossless potential of digital schemes, these new standards will be incompatible with existing viewing technology but ready to usher in a new decade of progress, particularly with respect to monitoring, in 2010. ANALTAL presents the SDI signal in biological, rectal-linear/biologarithmic space, while DIGALOG displays will make use of highly viewer-specific iterative-mechano-precise responses, based on feedback, as provided by probes. Universal, Sony, Thomson/Grass Valley, and Microsoft have endorsed DIGALOG, while Disney Studios and Time/Warner have formed a consortium backing ANALTAL. Microsoft has adapted DIGALOG in a proprietary manner, thus possibly forming a third option for 2010. “These new standards have everything we need to face acontent-oriented future, and will prove a boon to manufacturers and vendors alike, when the technology is ready,” stated NAB Director Phyllis Diller. “The market will decide, and we’re confident the more powerful consortium will be the best.”
