576i
576I is a standard-definition video mode originally used for broadcast television in most countries of the world where the utility frequency for electric power distribution is 50 Hz. Because of its close association with the color encoding system, it is often referred to as simply PAL , PAL/ SECAM or SECAM when compared to its 60 Hz (typically, see PAL-M ) NTSC -color-encoded counterpart, 480i . In digital applications it is usually referred to as "576i"; in analogue contexts it is often called "625 LINES", and the aspect ratio is usually 4:3 in analogue transmission and 16:9 in digital transmission . The _576_ identifies a vertical resolution of 576 lines, and the _i_ identifies it as an interlaced resolution. The field rate , which is 50 Hz , is sometimes included when identifying the video mode, i.e. 576I50; another notation, endorsed by both the International Telecommunication Union in BT.601 and SMPTE in SMPTE 259M , includes the frame rate , as in 576I/25. Its basic parameters common to both analogue and digital implementations are: 576 scan lines or vertical pixels of picture content, 25 frames (giving 50 fields) per second. In analogue 49 additional lines without image content are added to the displayed frame of 576 lines to allow time for older cathode ray tube circuits to retrace for the next frame, giving 625 lines per frame

Standard-definition Television
STANDARD-DEFINITION TELEVISION (SDTV OR SD) is a television system that uses a resolution that is not considered to be either high-definition television ( 720p , 1080i , 1080p , 1440p , 4K UHDTV , and 8K UHD ) or enhanced-definition television (EDTV 480p ). The two common SDTV signal types are 576i , with 576 interlaced lines of resolution, derived from the European-developed PAL and SECAM systems; and 480i based on the American National Television System Committee NTSC system. SDTV and high definition television (HDTV) are the two categories of display formats for digital television (DTV) transmissions, which are becoming the standard. In North America, digital SDTV is broadcast in the same 4:3 aspect ratio as NTSC signals with widescreen content being center cut . However, in other parts of the world that used the PAL or SECAM color systems, standard-definition television is now usually shown with a 16:9 aspect ratio , with the transition occurring between the mid-1990s and mid-2000s. Older programs with a 4:3 aspect ratio are broadcast with a flag that switches the display to 4:3 (some broadcasters prefer to reduce the horizontal resolution by anamorphically scaling the video into a pillarbox )

1080i
1080I (a.k.a. FHD and BT.709 ) is an abbreviation referring to a combination of frame resolution and scan type, used in high-definition television (HDTV) and high-definition video . The number "1080" refers to the number of horizontal lines on the screen. The "i" is an abbreviation for "interlaced" ; this indicates that only the odd lines, then the even lines of each frame (each image called a video field) are drawn alternately, so that only half the number of actual image frames are used to produce video. A related display resolution is 1080p , which also has 1080 lines of resolution; the "p" refers to progressive scan , which indicates that the lines of resolution for each frame are "drawn" in on the screen sequence. The term assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 (a rectangular TV that is wider than it is tall), so the 1080 lines of vertical resolution implies 1920 columns of horizontal resolution, or 1920 pixels × 1080 lines. A 1920 pixels × 1080 lines screen has a total of 2.1 megapixels (2.1 million pixels) and a temporal resolution of 50 or 60 interlaced fields per second. This format is used in the SMPTE 292M standard. The choice of 1080 lines originates with Charles Poynton , who in the early 1990s pushed for "square pixels" to be used in HD video formats.

High-definition Television
HIGH-DEFINITION TELEVISION (HDTV) is a television system providing an image resolution that is of substantially higher resolution than that of standard-definition television . HDTV is the current standard video format used in most broadcasts: terrestrial broadcast television , cable television , satellite television , DVDs , and streaming video . HDTV may be transmitted in various formats: * 1080p : 1920×1080p: 2,073,600 pixels (~2.07 megapixels ) per frame * 1080i : 1920×1080i: 1,036,800 pixels (~1.04 MP) per field or 2,073,600 pixels (~2.07 MP) per frame * Some countries also use a non-standard CEA resolution, such as 1440×1080i: 777,600 pixels (~0.78 MP) per field or 1,555,200 pixels (~1.56 MP) per frame * 720p : 1280×720p: 921,600 pixels (~0.92 MP) per frameThe letter "p" here stands for progressive scan , while "i" indicates interlaced . The term, "Full HD" refers to 1080p. When transmitted at two megapixels per frame, HDTV provides about five times as many pixels as SD (standard-definition television). The increased resolution provides for a clearer, more detailed picture. In addition, progressive scan swaps the entire image out 60 times per second, as compared to SD's 30 times per second, resulting in a picture without perceptible flicker

Canal+ (Spanish Satellite Broadcasting Company)
BROADCASTING is the distribution of audio or video content or other messages to a dispersed audience via any electronic mass communications medium , but typically one using the electromagnetic spectrum (radio waves ), in a one-to-many model. Broadcasting
Broadcasting
began with AM radio , which came into popular use around 1920 with the spread of vacuum tube radio transmitters and receivers . Before this, all forms of electronic communication (early radio , telephone , and telegraph ) were one-to-one, with the message intended for a single recipient. The term broadcasting, borrowed from the agricultural method of sowing seeds in a field by casting them broadly about, was coined by either KDKA manager Frank Conrad
Frank Conrad
or RCA historian George Clark around 1920 to distinguish this new activity of "one-to-many" communication; a single radio station transmitting to multiple listeners. Over the air broadcasting is usually associated with radio and television , though in recent years both radio and television transmissions have begun to be distributed by cable (cable television ). The receiving parties may include the general public or a relatively small subset; the point is that anyone with the appropriate receiving technology and equipment (e.g., a radio or television set) can receive the signal

Television In Spain
TELEVISION IN SPAIN was launched in October 1956, when the state broadcaster Televisión Española
Televisión Española
(TVE) started regular broadcasts. The first private channels started in 1990. Colour transmissions started in 1974 after two years of test transmissions, with all programming transmitted in color from 1977, and colour commercials, which started in 1978. Currently, television is one of the leading mass media of the country, and by 2008 was in 99.7% of households in Spain according to INE statistics. Until recently terrestrial television was considered an essential public service. Broadcasting is managed both directly by the State and indirectly, through controlled concessions to private firms. The Audiovisual Law of 2010 changed this by defining radio and television as commercial services that individuals pay for, fostering liberalization within some constraints

DVB-T
DVB-T is an abbreviation for "DIGITAL VIDEO BROADCASTING — TERRESTRIAL"; it is the DVB European-based consortium standard for the broadcast transmission of digital terrestrial television that was first published in 1997 and first broadcast in the UK in 1998. This system transmits compressed digital audio , digital video and other data in an MPEG transport stream , using coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing ( COFDM or OFDM) modulation. It is also the format widely used worldwide (including North America) for Electronic News Gathering for transmission of video and audio from a mobile newsgathering vehicle to a central receive point.

In the case of DVB-T, there are two choices for the number of carriers known as 2K-mode or 8K-mode
