|A brand new building that will house all of STRL has just been completed, and our hope is that it will foster a new era for broadcast technology. The foundation stone of the new building is a floor stone from the entrance hall of the Communications Training Institute, which is located at the same site. The Communications Training Institute building was the original STRL, dating from 1930.
The floor stone is thus a fitting symbol of the history of research and development of broadcasting technology in Japan, from the early days of television research, beginning with the work of Dr. Kenjiro Takayanagi, to the recent development of HDTV (Hi-Vision) and digital broadcasting.
This stone, now at the entrance of the new building, will be a witness to the future of a broadcasting technology that will realize the dreams of viewers.
