[ News, Science / Tech, February 28 2008] Analog TV broadcasting to end in 2012

Korea passed a special act to end analog television broadcasting in 2012 and encourage broadcasters to shift to digital broadcasting.

The Ministry of Information and Communication announced Wednesday (Feb. 27) Korea’s National Assembly passed a special act to turn analog television broadcasting to digital television broadcasting and promote digital broadcasting.

Analog television encodes television pictures and audio data and transmits it as an analog signal, whereas digital broadcasting is the practice of using digital data rather than analog waveforms to carry broadcasts over television channels or assigned radio frequency bands.
