The rapid development of digital technology and digital convergence has led to some remarkable advances in the quality of audio and video broadcast and in the consumer devices that bring sound and vision into the home.

What constitutes HDTV and its astonishing picture quality are explained in non-technical terms. Finally, it is highlighted how Philips strongly supports the case for HDTV in Europe, describing the customer benefits, the availability of ?HD-ready? products, emerging new and advanced video codecs and the company?s capabilities and credentials in digital TV, set-top box and semiconductor technologies.
