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.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Secure Digital Workspace Apps Enable the Future Enterprise

In early 2020, as the world responded to the COVID-19 pandemic disruption, many organizations were forced to rapidly transform their communications networks and IT infrastructure to support an unprecedented shift to remote work. Before the pandemic, approximately 38 percent of employees were remote full-time or had a flexible work arrangement where they split time between home and office locations. During the pandemic, the percentage of remote workers that CIOs had to support reached almost 72 percent. Future Enterprise Technology Market Development Enterprise leaders have been forced to adapt to a new state, shifting from traditional office-based operations to distributed workforce environments that must still provide the same level of connectivity, security, and efficiency across the organization. According to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC), addressing connectivity across geographies and transforming networks to become more virtual and agile
