Present day television systems do not offer the optimum picture quality which is possible within the given standards. Compatible improvements are proposed which use digital preprocessing at the transmitter and signal postprocessing at the receiver. It is the author's opinion that, before any new standards for HDTV-Systems will be defined, the possible improvements within the given standards should be examined.
