New Report: and quot;Broadcast Quality Is Now Determined by Viewers Not Broadcasters

At the upcoming SMPTE conference in LA, Josef Marc, Co-founder & CMO of Archimedia Technology, will present a paper that challenges current perception of what the words broadcast quality actually mean.

According to Marc, Broadcast quality is now being determined by the viewer, not broadcasters. Broadcast quality, which has traditionally been a standard that television engineers have strived to achieve, is being superseded by the choices of consumers in their devices.
