HD Race is on for the World CupLondon, 16th March 2006: With only 12 weeks to go before the World Cup kicks off in Germany, European pay TV operators have only just started to ship HD ready set top boxes. European players are struggling to get HD-capable set-top-boxes in sufficient numbers for consumers to be able to view the World Cup in high definition quality. These delays have been caused by a shortage of the necessary MPEG-4 chipsets.

Premiere in Germany, TPS in France, Sky Italia in Italy, Canal Digital in the Nordic and the BBC will all be broadcasting games in HD format but without the adequate set-top boxes the 'HD ready' households (those who own 'HD ready' TV sets) will not be able to watch them in HD quality.

A new report from media research company Screen Digest - High Definition Television: Global uptake and assessment to 2010 - paints a rosier bigger picture though and believes that all the necessary conditions are now in place for a sustainable lift off of HD television in Europe in the mid-term.

Vincent Létang, Screen Digest Senior Analyst and author of the report states: "The June World Cup in Germany was supposed to be the perfect kick-start for HD in Europe and its full thrust will be partly missed, but this does not jeopardize the introduction of HDTV. The strongest driver for HD TV is the fantastic success of flat panel television sets in Europe at the moment and the fact that a growing proportion of those are featuring HD resolution screens, which are standardised by the 'HD ready' Europe-wide label introduced in 2005."

At the end of 2005 there were already 2m 'HD ready' TV households in Europe and by 2010 there will be more than 50m 'HD ready' TV sets, creating large opportunities for European pay TV operators. Screen Digest predicts that by 2010 there will be approximately 100 HD channels available in Europe and more than 11m households will be actually watching television in HD quality (receiving HD broadcasts on HD ready sets and set-top boxes).

Across the globe HD has already made its mark and in early 2006, HD broadcasts were available in 12 countries: USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, South Korea, China, Germany and Austria, and the Nordic markets (Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway). By the end of 2005 there were 19m households with HDTV sets in the US (17% of total TV households) with 11m of these watching HD broadcasts. At the same time 14% (6.7m) of TV households in Japan were HD ready.

On a global basis, by the end of 2010 the number of HD ready households will reach 174m or 22% of TV households. The figure will be 59% in the US, 66% in Japan and 30% in Western Europe.

In a maturing pay TV market European operators have great expectations for HD as an effective marketing tool to increase revenue per subscriber, to reduce churn and to increase subscriber numbers. Consumer surveys show that consumers are more than ever demanding higher quality television and are ready to pay for the necessary hardware and service. BSkyB identifies HD as a key factor in its quest to reach 10m subscribers by 2010.

Létang also states: 'The HD proposition will come progressively but ultimately high definition will become the standard quality of television. In the mid term, pay TV operators will be able to extract direct new revenue from HD early adopters through HD tiers and next-generation HD-capable PVR set-top boxes. And this will drive a global migration to MPEG-4, resulting in savings in transmission in the long term'.

PS: BBC wird die Matchs auch in HDTV übertragen, zumindest die, die sie überträgt (teilt mit ITV). Allerdings bin ich mir nicht sicher ob das auf einem frei empfangbaren Kanal sein wird oder auf dem verschlüsselten Sender UKTV G2. Wird aber sooderso ein spezialkanal sein.

Angeblich ist eine Verschlüsselung unwahrscheinlich :-o : http://www.satundkabel.de/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=7353 - wobei ich mir das noch nicht ganz vortellen kann :? .

Infos zum Empfang gibts unter http://www.beitinger.de/sat/astra_2d.html

vermutlich wird das schon unverschlüsselt gesendet, aber durch die kleine anzahl von leuten mit entsprechendem equipment ist das wohl eine indirekte "verschlüsselung" und so wie es aussieht, kann der der premiere hd nicht bezahlt, trotzdem mitgucken einfach mit englischem kommentar und drumherum.

BBC to screen World Cup in HDTVSporting action is said to benefit from high-definition television

The BBC is to screen this summer's football World Cup and Wimbledon championships in High-definition television (HDTV).

The trial run of the service will include the BBC's share of World Cup matches and key Wimbledon ties in June.

The corporation is trying out HDTV for up to a year, starting in mid-May.

The system delivers more detailed pictures and sharper action shots, and will be an additional stream to the current analogue and digital services.

Blades of grass

HDTV will only be available to viewers who have HD-enabled television sets, set-top boxes and relevant services via satellite and cable distributors.

Roger Mosey, the BBC's director of sport, said the service was particularly effective with live action football and other sports.

"It gives fantastic picture quality, from the blades of grass that are being played on right to the back of the stands," he said.

Plasma television

High-definition pictures are much sharper than conventional television

Mr Mosey stressed that the trial would only be available to a selected group of viewers, but hoped it would prove to be "a glimpse of the future".

The first World Cup match and live HDTV programme to be broadcast will be Germany v Costa Rica on 9 June, which will also include match commentary and studio coverage.

The feed will come from Premiere, Germany's host broadcasters for the tournament.

High-definition images will also be fed into standard digital and analogue transmissions of the game and the Wimbledon Championships, where the BBC is the host broadcaster.

Limited airspace

The BBC's HDTV trial, expected to last between six and 12 months, will begin in May with streams of programmes, including Planet Earth and Galapagos.

Chances to revisit action from dramas Hotel Babylon and Bleak House will also be offered.

HDTV transmissions cannot be offered on Freeview at present due to limited airspace, while a trial limited to a few hundred households in London which have yet to be chosen will take place.

The digital switchover between 2008-2012 is expected to provide an opportunity to broadcast HDTV via Freeview.

Any ongoing HDTV service will have to be approved by the new BBC Trust.
ist ja geil...

naja, ob der dann noch synchron ist?!?
Wird er sicher nicht sein. Beim Digitalfernsehen gibt es durch die Komprimierung immer eine Gewisse Verzögerung. Dass die Verzögerung dann bei beiden Sendern etwa gleich ist, ist höchst unwahrscheinlich, und dann noch zwei Verschiedene Technologien. Wenn dann die Zuführung noch nicht über gleich viele Sats läuft, ist es dann ganz krass.

Kann man auch selber überprüfen, wenn eine Übertragung auf verschiedenen Sendern gleichzeitig kommt.
