NEC FIRST OUT WITH CHIP-SET FOR RECEPTION OF COLOUR SIGNALS

By CBR Staff Writer

If someone from NEC Corp looks at your beutiful new TV set and tells you you ain’t seen nothing yet, you’d better believe it: NEC has won the race to be first out with a chip set for high definition television reception of standard NTSC (Never Twice the Same Colour, they used to call it) colour signals; the set is stuffed with signal processors and almost 1Mb of memory to do things like convert the standard 30 cycle (25 in the UK) interlaced raster into a 60 cycle non-interlaced one that interpolates the 30 missing lines in each frame, as well as vastly improving separation of the chrominance and luminance signals to minimise barriers to good viewing like cross-colour and dot crawl; sounds stunning, but we’ll have to start saving the first (27) set will cost $2,500.
