This Society has been a leader in the standardization process for many years and in digital video recognized the urgent need for action leading towards standards as early as 1975 in the establishment of a Study Group and, more recently, a Working Group to recommend standards. In 1980, a Study Group on Digital Television Tape Recording was also set up. This activity has involved a great deal of effort in the various committees as the work progressed from concepts and investigations to experiments, demonstrations and an eventual recommendation to USSG-11 for CCIR for a framework for a componentbased standard acceptable for worldwide use.
