In this report, we propose an efficient scheme to use High Definition Television (HDTV) in a console or notebook format as a computer terminal in addition to their role as TV display unit. In the proposed scheme, we assume that the main computer is situated at a remote location. The computer raster in the remote server is compressed using an HD E- >Mpeg2 encoder and transmitted to the terminal at home. The built-in E->Mpeg2 decoder in the terminal decompresses the compressed bit stream, and displays the raster. The terminal will be fitted with a mouse and keyboard, through which the interaction with the remote computer server can be performed via a communications back channel. The terminal in a notebook format can thus be used as a high resolution computer and multimedia device. We will consider developments such as the required HD enhanced Mpeg2 resolution (E->Mpeg2) and its medical ramifications due to improvements on compressed image quality with 2D to 3D conversion (Mpeg3) and using the compressed Discrete Cosine Transform coefficients in the reality compression of vision and control of medical robotic surgeons.
