This article is an outline, a type of article that presents a list of articles or sub-topics related to its subject in a hierarchical form. For the standardized set of outlines on Wikipedia, see Portal:Contents/Outlines. Outlines are within the scope of WikiProject Outlines, a collaborative effort to improve outlines on Wikipedia.

The original article was intended to list links to TV technology. However, now other stuff (TV in the countries) is also included in the article and after the discussion in the contributor's talk page, it became clear that links about the programs, channels, TV stars, etc will follow next. I guess that the number of linked articles will be too great . I plan to split the article into two, one article about programs, productions and the like and the other about the technology. (The two articles may be linked to each other by a See also section) I am waiting for the feedbacks. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 21:23, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
I have some questions about the technology. TV stations are a form of television broadcasting technology. And so are methods of managing a TV station, right? Plus there are a lot of types of equipment used in TV stations, all of which are applied to broadcasting. My main question is, what types of technology are all of these? They are all obviously applied in television broadcasting, but do they have subtype names to further differentiate them? I'm all for branching out the tree of knowledge here, though I'm not sure what the branches are called. Do you have any ideas? The Transhumanist 21:34, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
I am not exactly sure if I understood what you mean. But anyway, I'll try. Most of the electronic equipment used in TV transmitters are not unique to TV transmission. For example modulators, amplifiers, buffer stages etc are universally used in most electronic circuitry. (The full name of the modems used in ınternet access is "modulator-demodulator".) But there are some equipment which are solely used for TV transmission like VSB filter. The same goes for the terminology. While input impedance is always used in all branches of electronics, ERP is used in broadcasting. I hope this helps. Happy new year. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 13:02, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
"Outline" is short for "hierarchical outline". There are two types of outlines: sentence outlines (like those you made in school to plan a paper), and topic outlines (like the topical synopses that professors hand out at the beginning of a college course). Outlines on Wikipedia are primarily topic outlines that serve 2 main purposes: they provide taxonomical classification of subjects showing what topics belong to a subject and how they are related to each other (via their placement in the tree structure), and as subject-based tables of contents linked to topics in the encyclopedia. The hierarchy is maintained through the use of heading levels and indented bullets. See Wikipedia:Outlines for a more in-depth explanation. The Transhumanist 00:10, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
