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.
