Freeview HD - High Definition Digital UHF TV (land based transmission)
Since 2008, many of New Zealand’s main service transmitters (TV1/2/3) have screened selected programmes in (HD) High Definition. In the South Island, Freeview HD is available to homes that can receive UHF aerial signals from the Mount Cargill transmitter in Dunedin, or the Sugarloaf transmitter in Christchurch. This coverage has just recently been extended to now include NELSON, TIMARU & INVERCARGILL
The Goverment has announced that analogue television broadcasts will be progressively switched off between September 2012 and November 2013 therefore a professionally installed HD aerial system is essential for reliable trouble free HD viewing. For HD digital reception, the aerial location on the home is critical to receiving faultless HD reception. Vision’s HD installers signal test with state of the art HD Digital signal test meters to ensure the best quality picture and signal location is achieved on your home.
HD has up to 4x higher picture resolution, giving brilliant picture quality. The picture quality of HD television is designed for flat screen TVs, but our systems can be connected to 'any' television.
HD produces smoother motion, richer and more natural colours, taking full advantage of your flat screen TV. Hi Definition also provides 5.1 surround sound, excellent for the depth and range of tone and volume required for Home Theatre systems.
