Digital UK Issues warning on equipment

Digital UK, the industry body which is managing the Digital Switchover, recently warned retailers of the need to thoroughly check the specifications of equipment they are selling to ensure that it complies with those required to work new digital transmission standards. Julian Arnold, Commercial Director at Airwave commented “Some products, typically ‘own label’ models produced for supermarkets and general retailers do not meet the industry guidelines, and could fail to work in the future. This may be a problem for individuals, but for commercial purchasers like hotels, it could spell disaster, particurlary if the TVs are covered by a traditional domestic warranty. It always pays to use a reputable and experienced commercial specialist when sourcing for the hospitality and leisure sector.”
