Notice of Closure (30 March 2018):
High Definition TV and Ultra High Definition logos



HD Ready 1080p and HDTV 1080p   



Products in the EU that meet a set of technical criteria determined by DIGITALEUROPE will carry the HD Ready 1080p and HDTV 1080p logos. 

HD ready 1080p - Designed for equipment devices including plasma and liquid crystal display (LCD) televisions that can receive, process and display High Definition 1080p signals

HD TV 1080p - Designed for display capable of receiving and decoding High Definition television signals and featuring a display compliant to HD ready 1080p
The logos allow licensees to differentiate between their display devices based on additional qualifications defined on top of those outlined in the Minimum Requirements of the DIGITALEUROPE "HD ready" and "HD TV" logo and specifically related to handling and representing “1080p” video signals that are becoming available to the consumer.Display products bearing the 1080p qualifier logos not only feature a minimum 1920 x 1080 resolution, but also guarantee that the relevant 1080p signal variants – 24 Hz, 50 Hz and 60 Hz – can be acquired, as well as reproduced with the same or higher frame rate. These minimum requirements are aimed to stop the proliferation of proprietary logoed products in the European marketplace that are creating confusion among consumers surrounding products which claim to conform to a variety of "Full HD" and "1080" standards.
