Compared to conventional analogue TV, digital TV allows for richer audio-visual experiences and opportunity for more interactive services.
Digital TV delivers higher-resolution pictures that are sharper and clearer, and free from the fuzzy images that are associated with analogue TV.
HDTV, for instance, enhances viewing experiences with a screen resolution of 1920 (horizontal) by 1080 (vertical) pixels and 16:9 aspect ratio, whereas analogue TV has a maximum resolution of 720 (horizontal) by 576 (vertical) pixels and 4:3 aspect ratio.
Singapore’s free-to-air (FTA) TV channels began broadcasting in digital on 16 December 2013 using the DVB-T2 (Digital Video Broadcasting – Second Generation Terrestrial) broadcasting standard.
