While current plans for Hi-Vision call for direct satellite broadcasting with the MUSE format, the technology can be applied in a number of other directions as well. With regard to current broadcasting, the ability to convert freely between Hi-Vision and NTSC or PAL formats will increase program availability as well as promote the diffusion of Hi-Vision. Moreover, the introduction of Hi-Vision is expected to have a new impact in fields such as motion pictures and printing, where existing television systems have failed to meet performance requirements. Under these circumstances, a major theme in the future will be to engineer the coexistence and co-prosperity of other media with Hi-Vision.
