Sarnoff Corporation, the birthplace of color television, has won its
fifth Emmy from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
This one is for Compliance Bitstreams, a set of analysis tools that
helps manufacturers insure that receivers for the new digital and
high definition television (DTV/HDTV) systems will reliably deliver
pictures, sound, and information. "This is crucial if the new
DTV system is to win fast consumer acceptance," says James E.
Carnes, president and CEO. The Emmy for Outstanding Achievement in
Technological Advancement is the television industry’s highest technical
New Jersey Network announced last week that it is working with Sarnoff
and other members of its consortium to serve as a real-life television
network environment in which to test such the Compliance Bitstreams
and other HDTV-related technologies.
Carnes says this tool is now a de facto standard for testing designs,
not only for televisions, but also for DVDs and digital video-based
computer hardware and software. "This Emmy recognizes the Sarnoff
tradition of serving the television industry and the television viewer,"

Alex Jourjine, head of Siemens’ Adaptive Information and Signal Processing
Department, last month announced a breakthrough in technology for
wireless access to the Internet. Blind Source Separation (BSS) techniques,
says Jourjine, can separate useful signals from the cacophony mixed
together in an electronic babble. This technology could enable base
stations to serve more users and thus reduce costs of Internet and
"A theoretical groundwork has been laid," says Jourjine, "and,
using realistic data, we have been able to confirm that one can separate
`blindly’ a large number of sources using only two receiving antennas."
A patent application has been filed and a commercial product could
be developed within two years.
