An electronic device that converts audio and video signals into modulated radio-frequency (rf) energy which can be radiated from an antenna and received by a television receiver. The term can also refer to the entire television transmitting plant, consisting of the transmitter proper, associated visual and aural input and monitoring equipment, transmission line, the antenna with its tower or other support structure, and the building in which the equipment is housed. In the United States, both analog NTSC (National Television Systems Committee) and digital 8-VSB transmitters are in service.
