South Korea Rejects European Standards
South Korea decided to adopt a technology backed by the United States as its digital television standard, ending a four-year dispute between the government and the broadcasting industry, the Ministry of Information and Communication said Thursday 8th July. So the European's with their DVB standard have lost an important battle. However, it was hardly surprising, bearing in mind the pressure the US has put on the country to be compatible with US markets. And Asia and the US are putting much more money into HDTV production than Europe.
