Today I continued to wander the Colorado Convention Center at C.E.D.I.A., in hopes of getting some insight into trends and developments. As we all know, LCD TV is now the driving force of the digital TV business, and this is expected to continue for the next several years at the expense of plasma displays and rear projection microdisplays.

Today, the C.E.D.I.A. Show opened to throngs of dealers, installers and the press. I haven't seen the official registration figures, but as soon as I do I will pass them along. At the same time that C.E.D.I.A. is going on in Denver, IBC (International Broadcast Conference) is going on in Amsterdam.

Blog

Today was press day at C.E.D.I.A. While it's always hectic, it still doesn't match press day at CES. In total, there were nine press events today, but not all of them affected DTV. My first meeting today was with the HD DVD Promotion Group, who mentioned that there are now more than 300 titles available on HD DVD with more on the way for the volatile 4th quarter.

DAC: An Independent Technical Program Committee
Blog  
9/4/2007   Post a comment
In my blog of August 24, entitled "Vendors not the sole cause of declining DAC attendance", I may have given the impression that two of the three DAC sponsors, namely ACM and the IEEE have direct control over the contents of the Technical Program. I did not mean to imply this.
