Broadcast Digital HDTV Indoor Antenna Solution

Over-the-air (OTA) broadcast high definition television deployment is growing across the globe, as more nations retire the analog TV transmission infrastructure and convert over to digital. Here in the U.S. market, the video image quality of digital broadcast TV has to be seen to be believed – it’s a vast improvement over the old system.

That being said, I’ve discovered that most indoor TV antennas don’t perform well. I live on high ground not too far from the communication towers where the broadcast TV signals are transmitted. So, theoretically, we should achieve outstanding broadcast digital TV reception.

Quest for a Superior Broadcast TV Antenna

Unfortunately, that has not been the case, until now. My prior attempts at finding a suitable indoor antenna for digital TV broadcasts proved to be very problematic. Some indoor antennas are very particular about placement – the proximity of the antenna relative to the TV set, and the other surroundings.

Many require tuning – carefully adjusting the placement of the antenna so that reception across all broadcast channels is somewhat consistent. I’ve used three different antenna types, thus far. Only the Leaf Indoor Antenna, from Mohu Inc., has delivered acceptable performance in our home. To date -- based upon our usage needs -- the Leaf was able to effectively deliver all the local channels, all of the time (with no tuning required).

As you’ll see, the manufacturer claims that “The Leaf is unlike any other television antenna on the market and provides unparalleled performance, installation options and value.” Frankly, when I received the device I was immediately struck by the relative simplicity of the design – it’s flat, very unobtrusive and easy to install.

I’ve used it successfully with our nineteen inch digital HDTV set that we use in the kitchen area, underneath a row of cabinets. The other TVs in our home are connected to the local cable TV network. Because we don’t use their digital cable service – just the basic analog service – I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the OTA channels produce high quality video images.

Offering Excellent Value for a Low Price

Mohu offers a 30-day money back guarantee and the antenna has a standard one-year warranty. I’ve waited a couple of months before I decided to write my review of this product. Given my prior experience with other indoor antennas, I wanted to be sure that the excellent results were truly sustainable.

If you’ve been searching for a digital broadcast TV antenna that doesn’t require power for signal amplification, can be easily hidden from view and works well across the full spectrum of broadcast TV channels, then the Leaf is a good choice.

Digital Identity Verification Market to Reach $16.7B

As more enterprise organizations embrace the ongoing transition to digital business transformation, CIOs and CTOs are adopting new technologies that enable the secure identification of individuals within their key stakeholder communities. A "digital identity" is a unique representation of a person. It enables individuals to prove their physical identity during transactions. Moreover, a digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for online interactions -- similar to a person's identity within the physical world. Individuals can use a 'digital ID' to be verified through an authorized digital channel. Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to identify a unique person online or offline. Digital Identity Systems Market Development Complementary to more traditional forms of identification, digital identity verification systems can enhance the authenticity, security, confidentiality, and efficiency of
