TLAs and Beyond

I'm used to seeing and using TLAs; but this conference has more of the alphabet in use than any I've seen. At one booth a presenter was spewing what seemed like random letters for more than 5 min. There would be the odd connecting word or adjective, but it was mostly letters, "Our HDTV has HDMI with H.234 and IPTV. You'll love the 1080p and 2k in full HD .... " Or something like that.

Here are the ones I've spotted in the past few days - how many do you know:
HD, HDV, HDMI, 2k, 4K, SAIT-2, HD-SDI, HDD VD, NLE, 180i, 180p, SD-SDI, NTSC, PAL, VBS, RGB 4:4:4, XLR-BMP, 10 bit 4:2:2, 24F, 24p, VTR, RS422, BD-ROM, DVB-S/2, IP QoS, PVR, DVR, VOD, STB, IPTV, DRM, OMA, VOD, DVB-2, DVB-H, S-DBM, T-DBM, 1080p, 2540p, 1020p, 720p, 1080i, ASI, SDTV, JPEG2000, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, MPEG-4 AVC, PIP, DVB-S2, MPTS, QPSK, SATA II, RAID, J2EE, DTV, EIA-608B, NTSC, PAL, 292M, VANC, ISAN, VC-1, Ad-ID, VoD, DLP, SXGA+.
