Will the award of the 2012 Olympics be good news for mainstream HD in the UK? Surely the momentum (and sales) that BBC & ITV will gain from their roles as host nation broadcasters will open a few doors in respect of cash for facilities and licences for terrestrial bandwidth.
Although the analogue switch-off is not due to complete until 2012, is there an opportunity to slot in a SFN mux to carry at least three or four HD programmes?

We're already discussing this here.

Get my test cards document, and cards for 625, 525, 720 and 1080. Thanks to Gavin Gration for hosting them.
Camera settings documents are held by Daniel Browning and at the EBU
My book, 'Circles of Confusion' is available here.
Also EBU Tech.3335 tells how to test cameras, and R.118 tells how to use the results.
