Project 04027

HD4U

High definition TV for Europe

The objectives of HD4U were to fill in the technological gaps in the high definition television (HDTV) chain – by creating a high definition video encoder, picture quality assessments and improvements, and interoperability of receivers – and to set-up an HDTV demonstrator for three types of distribution networks: satellite, terrestrial (DVB-T) and wired broadband (ADSL2+).
