If you thought the differences between print and computer screens were difficult, then type for television would make you cry.
Television pixels are rectangular rather than square. Furthermore, the colour pallet is constrained by legacy broadcast technologies and the type must appear smooth on even old low resolution television screens.
It may have been in the 1950s when the BBC designed their rounded font for broadcast subtitles. Does anyone know where to acquire a copy of BBC fonts for use on a PC?
Alternatively, can anyone suggest an excellent font for use on low contrast transmission with rather big rectangular pixels?
