HDTV – Television of the future



Overview of the official HDTV logos

Dear reader!

igh-definition television (HDTV) is a leading part of the digital TV age. This 21st century entertainment and educational technology is the quality standard for Mark MacGann, Director a new generation General of the European of devices with unInformation, Communicaprecedented image tions and Consumer Electronics Technology Industry and sound quality. Association (EICTA) It is a revolutionary increase in quality for digital TV transmission and reception: the potential for Europe is enormous, so the stakes are high. The switchover from analogue to digital requires careful coordination among key stakeholders in order to provide consumers with the anticipated benefits. Without a high-definition feed, for example, an HD-ready television will fail to deliver on viewer expecta-



tions. The right efforts upstream - from broadcasters, programme makers, and equipment manufacturers - will result in satisfaction downstream. The success of the HDTV rollout in Europe will be measured in terms of consumer satisfaction. Information is key for end users, and our industry has tried to educate the public via a range of different channels to ensure that people understand the full benefits of high definition. One example is the creation of a unique set of logos (HD Ready, HD Ready 1 080p, HDTV, HDTV 1 080p) that provide consumers with a guarantee that displays from different manufacturers are future proof and fully compliant with commonly agreed technical standards. Without doubt, HD television represents a major technical milestone. It has opened the door to new developments that are being explored by the digital technology industry, and generated new expectations among consumers. Our sector will continue to innovate and

collaborate with other stakeholders, seizing the opportunities offered by this new standard and shaping the world by design. I am a firm believer in the future of HD. Sincerely, Mark MacGann

To ensure high transparency and confidence among retailers and consumers, EICTA provides special logos to manufacturers of HDTV equipment. Since its inception in 2005, the European Information Communication and Consumer Electronics Technology Industry Association has conceived 4 logos:

HDTV – Television of the future



HDTV market status and future prospects Dear Mr. Fritz, HDTV is available in many European countries, but market penetration is very fragmented. Why? The main European HDTV markets are the UK, France and Spain. Other markets showing consistent growth include Italy, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the Scandinavian countries. In Germany, high-definition programming is limited but set to grow with the launch of services from ZDF, ARD and leading private broadcasters. Finally, HDTV has launched in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and momentum is growing steadily in other central and eastern European markets. There are several reasons for this uneven growth: • Launching an HD service requires significant investment from broadcasters. Pay-TV services tend to be first to launch because funding such an investment is easier than in free-to-air markets. • There are millions of HD-ready TVs in Europe, but relatively few HD settop boxes: in Germany, for example, only 170 000 HD receivers were sold in 2007. In general, broadcasters will only offer high-definition content when they’re convinced that the number of homes cawww.ses-astra.com

System Integration for a more reliable future

pable of watching it is sufficiently large. • Broadcast satellites offer very attractive high-definition programming. In Europe, for example, ASTRA leads the field with nearly 70 channels. Other infrastructures deliver significantly fewer channels, which has led to HDTV being more successful in traditional satellite TV markets. What do you think is needed to make HDTV more successful? I believe the first priority is closer cooperation between all players in the HDTV market, so that there is more programming on offer, and a much larger pool of HD receivers. Consumers are already aware that HD will replace conventional or standard-definition TV, so I’d like to see our market partners selling more HD receivers and TVs with integrated HD receivers, rather than digital receivers, which may not be entirely future proof. High-definition receivers have a longer lifespan because they can receive conventional and HD programming. I would also encourage broadcasters to acknowledge that high definition is here to stay. ASTRA consumer surveys show

that viewers are eager for more content: HD channels report higher subscription rates, longer viewing times and greater channel loyalty. From our side, I can guarantee that ASTRA will continue to support every HDTV channel broadcasting via our satellites. Thank you for this interview.

Dear Mr. Hecker, recently there has been a notable trend towards televisions with integrated HDTV receivers (IDTVs), which makes set-top boxes unnecessary. What are the advantages of this integration? Integration gives consumers a wide range of advantages including simplicity – no need for a set-top box with all its cables – ease of use, and a single unified remote control. Also, in times of high-energy costs consumers want equipment that saves power: getting rid of external components reduces household energy consumption. In addition, integrated HDTV receivers can usually process more than one signal path: this is not a feature found on external receivers at the moment. Finally, in countries such as Germany where HD broadcasts are still limited, consumers who buy IDTVs are making a future-proof purchase. What changes need to be made so that the industry can increase the availability of such products? Probably the best stimulus to increasing the availability and range of integrated HDTV receivers is a rapid ex-

pansion in the availability of high-definition programming. The HD “roadmap” for public channels is a clear signal to the industry and the consumer, and shows that HD will establish itself as the television standard of the future. We also need common, network-independent technical standards so that the industry doesn’t waste time, effort and money on manufacturing equipment with different and competing technical standards or formats. It gives the trade the confidence to get behind the marketing of a new technology, and encourages consumers to invest more readily because they don’t have to wait for the outcome of a format or standards war. Proprietary and competing standards serve only to complicate and slow down the development of markets because they confuse consumers and delay their purchasing decisions.
