16: 9 Aspect Ratio Satellite Testing: 3 More Days

 
VOA is transitioning from the current 16:9 letterboxed display to a full 16:9 widescreen SD broadcast. We'd like to thank our affiliates for participating in our survey this spring – we found that nearly all of you are ready to accept the full 16:9 broadcast now. For the small number of affiliates that need equipment to accept the broadcast,  we are working with you to make sure you receive the equipment you need.

Satellite Testing:
We plan to run a test feed for each of the satellite main paths from June 1st – June 7th, 2014.

Final Transition:
Full switch over to full-screen 16:9 is scheduled for Monday July 14th through Friday July 25th.

We do not expect affiliates to have problems accepting this signal.
If you see any problems with the test signals, please alert Doug Boynton, Director of Marketing  dboyton@bbg.gov and he will arrange for technical assistance.

 

All tests will occur between June 1-7, 2014
