The first NTSC developed the black and white, or monochrome, standard that was approved by the FCC for the advent of commercial broadcasting in 1941.
A second confrence developed the proposal to add color to the existing monochrome standard. The FCC approved this standard in December 1953.
A third committee, this time called the ATSC, or Advanced Television System Committee, developed the standard for high-definition television (HDTV) approved by the FCC in 1996. The first commercial HDTV broadcasts occurred in 1998.
