    hence the . Interesting history of the pattern though.
    Kinda figured that but thought it would be fun to recall the history anyway.
    BTW people don't realize that our old NTSC analog broadcast TV standard really WAS "1930's technology", so I always point that out when folks gripe about having to toss out their old analog TV sets.

    The old NTSC system had an eighty year run. That's incredible for high-tech.
    We HAD to upgrade to high definition digital.

    There just was no way to make analog remain relevant anymore, and of course with the move from analog, HD was inevitable.
    I for one am thrilled with it.

    At the time the old "Indian Head" test pattern was originally put into service, NOTHING could resolve the feather detail faithfully much less the rest of the resolution patterns, they were lucky to get 240 lines out of it in real world terms even though the actual standard was 330 lines...yeah right. (LOL)

    Remember those government coupons for converter boxes?

    I'm probably one of those who griped about the changeover. But yeah, after having HD digital, there's no way I'd want to go back to analog.

    As a film editor I'd already been doing digital since 1998 and high definition digital since 2002, and believe me, as tough as the changeover was for TV set owners, it was murder on people in post production.
