The accelerating pace of the development of digital techniques for television has presented the Broadcaster with an interesting dilemma. On the one hand he sees the power of the techniques to provide solutions to engineering problems, extend existing capabilities and create new effects and thus applies pressure to the industry to speed up development. On the other hand, he sees that very pressure bringing with it the high probability of equipment purchased this year being obsolescent next year.
