  • Samsung Passes Trial Digital TV Broadcasts in U.S.
  • July 29, 1998 (SEOUL) -- Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. said U.S. test runs of its newly-developed digital TV were successful.
    Samsung's latest digital television model, the SVP-555JHD, received clear local broadcasts during test operations in the United States.

    The new digital TV also passed tests for signal reception sensitivity and noise tests.

    Samsung expects the digital TV to meet standards required by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC).

    The U.S. digital television market, which will be launched with broadcasts in November 1998, is expected to surpass US$300 billion by 2006.
