CBS 5: HDTV compression

The local CBS/CW news affiliate in San Francisco used a couple quotes from me in a story about Comcast compressing HD signals. And of course they use a bite where I feel I’m stumbling all over myself to explain jaggies and artefacts and such without using the word jaggies and artefacts.

CBS 5: Good Questions

I was interviewed by local CBS affiliate, KPIX, for their “Good Question” segment. The question was, “why do speakerphones make that annoying sound when you have a cell phone nearby?”

Hopefully they kept the quote where I describe it as the Durka Durka noise.

The segment will air during the 10 p.m. news on CW (Channel 12), and during the 11 p.m. news program on KPIX (Channel 5).
