Of all the things discussed at Pulver’s HDComms event in May the one thing that spurred everyone to agreement was the idea that wideband telephony needs much greater public visibility. To that end Mr Pulver proposed the formation of a trade group to be called HD Connect. This group would promote wideband telephony in various ways to manufacturers, resellers, regulators and end-users. Since May both Jeff and Dan Berninger have been working to get this body assembled.
One of the objectives of this group is to establish recognizable labeling for manufacturers to use on their packaging. While it’s still early days for HD Connect, the logo shown here is what they’ve settled upon as indicating 100% genuine wideband capable, HD Connect certified, good stuff inside.
The next step in the groups promotional campaign comes July14th when Jeff Pulver will be making a trip to Washington DC to begin promoting the merits of HD Comms.
