In this paper we first introduce some R and D activities to develop the technical standards for digital standard definition TV(SDTV) and high definition TV(HDTV) as well as MPEG related activities in Korea. Then we present the key elements of the technical standards of SDTV and HDTV via satellite, which are based on the MPEG- 2 international standard. We describe design and implementation of a prototype DTV encoding system we developed. We also explain the system architecture and design considerations for the development of the prototype HDTV encoding system with application specific integrated circuit(ASIC)s. Both of these prototype systems will be used to verify the technical standards, which need to be prepared for the introduction of digital video services.
