I Put A Stop Watch on It

Post by lastone »

Interesting (to me at least) that the A/V live feed of the Pres. speech on CBS.com is a full 3 seconds faster than off the air. Sat delay?

TVRO (satellite receiver) ---> Decoding ---> Digital Processing ---> Insertion of local program data, EAS, etc.
---> Encoding ---> Microwave STL ---> Transmitter ---> TV Set

Total delay can average between 8 and 15 seconds depending on whether or not the satellite HD feed is ran through the MC switcher or patched directly to the Transmitter.

I was watching something on my satellite TV last week when I made a call to a friend. I could hear his TV in the background. He was watching the same program as me, but on Suddenlink cable. I noticed that he was getting the signal a full 2 to 3 seconds in delay to mine.

With all the digital delays in the world, we'll all be dead 2 years before we notice it...
