From A for AGF Videoforschung to Z for zapping, the most important technical terms in video research are explained here.


Terrestrial transmission refers to the reception level of picture and sound transmission from earthbound radio transmitters. Terrestrial television is possible via a house, indoor or rod antenna with a small additional box. A DVB-T/DVB-T2 receiver can also be integrated in the television set. All programmes of the public broadcasters receivable via DVB-T2 can be received free of charge and unencrypted. The programmes of the private broadcasters can be added for a fee via "freenet TV".
