CEA'S 2005 HDTV Summit to focus on analog cut-off

The Consumer Electronics Association’s (CEA) 10th annual HDTV Summit will feature top industry and government leaders as they debate and offer predictions about the impending analog television cut-off.

The HDTV Summit will be March 15 at the Washington D.C. Convention Center.

The latest DTV policy issues, legislation and regulatory proceedings will be discussed during a morning panel featuring Rick Chessen, FCC associate chief and chairman of the DTV Task Force; Rhett Dawson, Information Technology Industry Council president and CEO; David Donovan, MSTV president; Gary Shapiro, CEA president and CEO; and Gigi Sohn, Public Knowledge president and co-founder. Gary Arlen of Arlen Communications will moderate the panel.

Los Angeles Times reporter Jon Healy will moderate a Sales Forecast session featuring experts predicting what is on the horizon for HDTV, as well as how the current sales figures and past predictions have played out. Panelists include Josh Bernoff, vice president and principal analyst, Forrester Research; Phil Swann, CEO, TV Predictions; Sean Wargo, director of industry analysis, CEA and Ross Young, president and CEO, DisplaySearch.

The HDTV Summit will close with Beyond HD Technology - a panel discussion that will look at the opportunities for the returned analog spectrum. Experts will discuss the possibilities for use of the analog spectrum ranging from public safety and wireless to unknown future innovations.

Event registration for both conferences is available at www.CE.org/events.
