Home entertainment revolutionized with digital TV.
With the phase out of analog television and the switchover to digital television between 2010 and 2013, Australian households are being encouraged to learn about the benefits and options associated with digital.
"Digital television really is a revolution in home entertainment," says Steve Mannion, DGTEC spokeman. "It is a significant leap forward from the experience of analog. It means better picture quality and image resolution, more intense colours and clearer sound. But the real advantage of digital television is that it will clear space in network broadcast capacity, bringing more content and brand new channels."
Figures released from the Government's first Digital Tracker survey show that Australians are already enjoying the benefits of digital television in large numbers. The 1st Quarter survey (January-March 2009) showed almost half (47%) of Australian households have converted to free-to-air digital television broadcasts. With almost two-thirds (64%) stating that they understood the conversion process.
Helping Australian householders to confidently complete their digital conversion is DGTEC's major point of focus. "Through our extensive network of retail partners, we can offer the right guidance and advice on selecting digital ready products and ensuring they are properly setup. The complete digital switchover may not happen until 2013, but there is a wealth of digital only content and a whole new digital television experience, that is available right now."
Part of Hills Industries Limited, DGTEC is an Australian leader in home entertainment solutions and in 2001 was the first company in the world to introduce DVB-T high definition set top boxes, to a consumer marketplace.
