8-VSB

(8-level Vestigial SideBand) The modulation technique used for digital TV (DTV) in the U.S. It minimizes interference with analog NTSC signals, which must be transmitted simultaneously with the digital signals until 2006. NTSC uses an analog VSB modulation. See DTV. Contrast with OFDM.

Offering the highest level of integration and performance of any solution on the market today, the DRX-H integrates an ATSC A/53-compliant 8VSB demodulator with an ITU-T J.
In addition to performing MPEG transport analysis and monitoring for interface points carrying 8VSB or COFDM modulated terrestrial broadcast RF signals, this interface also provides the important function of RF analysis of the DTTV signal, allowing customers to determine whether or not the problem exists in the digital video service or in the DTTV transmission.

Reference design includes both 8VSB and QAM demodulators to allow compatibility with both ATSC and Digital-cable-in-the-clear sources.
In Q4 2004, USDTV will introduce a next-generation set-top box featuring Zenith's fifth-generation 8VSB reception technology from LG Electronics and MPEG4 compression, which will enable the company to introduce new services, such as VOD and digital video recording (DVR) capabilities.
THEATER 313 will enable LG Innotek to provide compact tuners that convert RF in the form of 8VSB (vestigial sideband), 64/256 QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) and NTSC (National Television Standards Committee), outputting MPEG2, CVBS and I2S.
The DHDC-D receives the 8VSB signal, downconverts it to IF and then feeds it to the DHDC-U.
