25th Anniversary of the World Premiere of
the Digital HDTV Grand Alliance System
April 10, 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the World Premiere of the Digital HDTV Grand Alliance system at NAB95. To commemorate the occasion, I'm releasing some "never-before-seen" recordings of the Grand Alliance's first demonstration and press conference, which are on a special page here:
There are also a complete set of photos and many additional items on this page. Be sure to read the Grand Alliance press release and brochure and see the photos of our demonstrations for the FCC!
