Television systems with 1000 line or greater resolution have been available for several decades, but the relatively wide transmission bandwidths required have limited useage to short distances. The availability of satellite transponders, particularly DBS services, and the resulting greater amount of available spectrum space has stimulated renewed activity in this field, especially in high quality color video for the entertainment field.
