PRODUCT DESIGN

DPTV/NTSC/MONITOR

The Marantz HD6400W Digital

Projection Television (DPTV) represents an advanced first step concept in integrated digital products. Designed for discrete and cross-over system functionality the HD6400W will support traditional NTSC Television standards, receive all certified FCC defined ATSC digital transmission formats, as well as perform PC Monitor Display capability.

Although future plans allow for the two television broadcast systems to coexist for a number of years, the eagerly awaited transition from analog (NTSC) to digital (ATSC) high-defini- tion television has begun.

The Marantz HD6400W DPTV is uniquely positioned to operate within both current and future video signal formats.

The HD6400W will provide the largest of viewing windows into an unprecedented era of high-definition picture resolutions, digital surround sound playback, and access to a variety of entertainment and interactive services.

LCD REMOTE DESCRIPTION OF CONTROLS AND OPERATION

LCD REMOTE

INTELLIGENT REMOTE

Your remote is a LCD touchscreen univer-

sal, learn remote that combines flexibility of use with maximum adaptability. Set to automatically work with your Marantz HD6400W DPTV and all its integrated Menu system features, the remote also has preset “Device” operations for a variety of Audio and Video accessory products (such as VCR, DVD, CD, Tape, etc.)

Although the remote’s preprogrammed operating codes (RC5/6) were set to work with Marantz and Philips branded products, other manufacturer’s equipment can easily be controlled through the remote’s “Learn” mode capability. Even the remote’s keypress buttons and Device select list can be customized or rearranged to better match the order and commands for your specific in-home electronics.

The remote can also memorize select key button sequences in order to automate, or “shortcut”, a feature function selection or process. Once created and placed in memory the recorded “macros” will execute the desired commands to the various components in order to complete, for example, a VCR movie playback on the DPTV or other similar procedure.

Due to the amount of optional components available within the remote’s Device Reference and Learn Code Lists, please refer to the separate full-use Remote Control Owner’s Manual for complete details on its functions and operations.

DIGITAL (ATSC) MENU CONTROL OPERATIONS (CONTINUED)

ATSC MENUS

digital 1nf0rmation

AUTOPROGRAM CHANNELS

Rear of DPTV

The “DTV Setup” menu automatically takes care

of some of the digital channel scan memory functions for the DPTV. Once connected to receive local digital broadcast transmissions, available area stations can be quickly added into the DPTV's channel memory for programmed channel selection or access.

SUBCHANNEL SELECTIONS

Note: The new standards (for bandwidth and signal compression) employed with digital ATSC broadcasting make it possible to receive multiple program channels under a single “major” channel number. For example, under a traditional channel “6” broadcast program number you might be able to find as many as four or more additional programs available for selection. These so called “subchannels” might carry a “06.01, 06.02, 06.03, etc.” type station number designation and could be selected by pressing a four digit remote control direct-access channel number entry.

The multiplication and diversity of sub-channel programming is contingent upon the decisions of broadcasters and how the space allocated for high-definition television signals might be used. The content and information available with sub-channels will be an evolving digital issue which could experience redirection on a number of multicasting information technology pathways. For example, the “squeezing” of numerous Standard Definition digital channels (SDTV) into signal bandwidths could be used rather than dedicating the total signal spectrum to true High Definition (HDTV) broadcasts that would rival the picture resolution and quality of film or cinema.

DIGITAL TV ROLLOUT - TIME/TERMS/TECHNOLOGY

DTV TIMETABLE

PROGRAM AVAILABILITY

The switch to digital programming won’t happen

overnight, but broadcasters are beginning the task of converting equipment and production capabilities to meet the FCC’s rules for signal format and launch of digital TV.

The first step for the networks will be to supply their affiliates with one satellite program feed for continuing NTSC service (at least thru the year 2006), and another feed for a single channel of HDTV (or SDTV format channels). ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS networks are all attempting to broadcast some HDTV programming beginning in the fall of 1998 (see the digital InfOrmation section to the right for specific plans and details), but much in the way of new digital broadcast tower construction, site zoning and other conversion issues will need to be resolved in order for the broadcasts to begin in earnest.

In the beginning local stations can offer different programming on their allotted digital channel space, but as time passes the percentage of NTSC programs that must be converted to digital “simulcast” broadcasts will increase (in order to meet specified conversion schedule requirements.)

The Cable TV industry’s standard for the use and carrying of digital broadcasts, which has a different frequency modulation than cable signals, is unresolved (as of the date of this publication.) Although some cable operators promise that digital set-top boxes or decoders will be available to pass HDTV signals to digital TV sets, no official “must carry” design for the interfacing of cable TV programming and digital TV technologies has been agreed upon. Even without firm program launch dates or established guidelines, digital cable decoder equipment and program offering plans (by such cable program providers as HBO, Turner Broadcasting and the Discovery Channel) are all underway for the interconnection of cable TV and the arrival of HDTV. It may not have immediate solutions at the outset, but market and industry demands should speed cable operators to provide for the HDTV signal to make it into the cable supplied home. Direct-broadcast satellite system (DSS) providers (such as Direc Tv, Unity Motion, Dish Network, etc.) have also announced plans to deliver HDTV to its customer base in the spring of 1999. DSS subscribers will likely need upgraded dish and satellite receiver designed equipment to complete their digital reception package, but a number of providers are working on both off-the-air signal and direct satellite feed solutions.

Digital Television (DTV) is the umbrella term used to describe the new digital television system adopt-

ed by the FCC. DTV is an open standard with few specific format rules for the implementation of

HDTV/SDTV/and a host of potential data broadcast applications. Although there are certain guidelines

for frequency/bit rates/transmission power/etc. the FCC has taken the position that the marketplace

should decide or dictate what formats will best serve the public.

While they may differ on the choice of digital formats (1080i, 720p, 480i, etc.) the netw orks broadcast plans center mainly on select primetime * program viewing. Because of the production techniques and equipment upgrades necessary for digital broadcasts the telecasting of sports or other

live events will not become available until audience view - ership can justify costs.

NBCto begin shooting The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in HDTV beginning in 1999; also plans to show other primetime show s in HDTV

Fox to distribute some portion of its schedule in 720p HDTV.

*Outside of the primetime slot for netw ork digital show s local stations can provide different programming on their digital broadcast channel. They are free to convert current NTSC programming into digital SDTV or even upgrade their signal to true HDTV. ABC, NBC and Fox are advising affiliates to use 480p for the majority of its broadcast day, while CBS recommends its stations use the 480i format.
