ABSTRACT
With the broad penetration of television in Brazil, the country's adoption of a new broadcast digital television standard is important technologically and economically. Already the biggest market in South America, the switch to digital television is expected have a fiscal impact on the order of $100 billion. The International System for Digital television (ISDTV) standard was inaugurated in December 2007. ISDTV was selected from today's best-known individual technologies for video and audio coding, transport and channel coding and modulation. The transmission of ISDTV signals has started in Sao Paulo and rollout will continue across the country through 2013. Other countries across South America are also considering adoption of ISDTV.
