CEA To Hold Spring HDTV Updates

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) is planning HDTV Update meetings for six markets in the spring to bring retailers, broadcasters and cable representatives up-to-date on the state of the DTV transition.

The meetings, which will offer HDTV sales results and projections and market research data compiled by CEA, are meant to provide a national perspective on where the transition is heading and give local parties an opportunity to discuss ways of working together to achieve greater consumer awareness of HDTV.

Updates will be held in Dallas, Atlanta, Tampa/St. Petersburg, Fla., Seattle and Phoenix and were selected based on a strong retail HDTV presence and the number of DTV broadcasters.

"When we complete this next series of meetings we will have convened the movers and shakers of the HDTV transition in nine of the top 10, and 14 of the top 15 television markets," says CEA president and CEO Gary Shapiro.
