How thin was the air at the top of the HDTV summit? How about these remarkably optimistic words from the CEA's president, Gary Shapiro, at last week's HDTV Summit in Washington, D.C.:
"HDTV is inevitable and the marketplace is proving it. With the most significant obstacles to the HDTV transition behind us and more consumers embracing the technology, we now are on the downward slope of the transition. As we descend the HDTV Summit, we all must remain committed to fulfilling the full promise of HDTV. For broadcasters, that means not only getting a digital station up and running, but also doing so at full power and within the legal time frame. Anything else is unacceptable."
