Prepare for the High-Definition Revolution
Two important dates are coming up very soon. The first is the big fall buying season, which as we all know is the bread and butter for many consumer electronics retailers. The second date, a little further off, is February 17, 2009, when all analog TV broadcast signals will cease.
What do those two dates have in common? Both will have people thinking about new HDTVs.
The high-definition revolution is the most exciting thing to happen to the electronics industry since the invention of video. By the end of 2007, according to the consumer electronics association, cumulative sales of DTVs will exceed 85 million units, and over the next two years another 70 million new DTVs will be sold.
