Given the theme of the 14th Television Conference as "The Digital Decade" it is appropriate to present here a report from the Committee on New Technology. The Committee on New Technology has been intimately involved in digital television throughout its life. The committee came into being in July 1976, when the SMPTE Board of Governors approved a new engineering committee organization. Eight new committees were formed at that time with a general scope which applied to every committee.
