BBC looking to reduce picture quality

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

As strange as it may see the BBC are looking into the possibilities of reducing picture quality in order for them to get the most out of its spectrum. They are so serious that the BBC executive board are planning to carry out consumer research that will focus on the picture quality on the DTT system; this is following the recommendations being put to them by Deloitte & Touche.

There will be a series of technological improvements which will continue until the year 2012, the BBC are making moves to get the regulator Ofcom to reorganise the spectrum in order that they can add another four HD channels at least, hopefully more.

Basically the report written by Deloitte & Touche, they mention that the BBC has made good use of their spectrum, but they need to make trade offs in order for it to be able to provide additional services.
