Digital broadcast conversion progresses worldwide

The international migration from analog broadcasting to digital terrestrial television (DTT) is having a significant impact on the TV set market, according to researcher In-Stat.

Many nations have announced an analog broadcast shutoff date, but how they implement this change varies. Some countries are allocating spectrum so they can transmit analog and digital broadcasts concurrently for a number of years. Other countries are rolling out DTT regionally and shutting down analog service as the rollout is completed, said In-Stat.

Recent research by In-Stat has found:

  • DTV tuner integration is happening faster in North America and Japan than it is in Europe or other parts of Asia;
  • In-Stat anticipates that flat-panel displays will overtake CRTs by 2007;
  • More than 11 percent of all respondents to an In-Stat U.S. consumer survey plan to buy a new DTV set within the next six months.
