The DTG is the centre for collaboration at the heart of the digital TV industry. More than 125 companies are members of the DTG, and collectively we drive innovation and growth in the television and technology sectors.
We're the only impartial space of its kind in the UK, and the joint expertise from DTG Members continues to define the technologies that make the UK a world-leading TV industry and ensure market interoperability.
The DTG has highlighted the risks of over-promising on the 4k experience after the Advertising Standards Authority told DSG Retail not to re-run a Christmas ad implying that 4k TVs would show greater detail without supporting evidence, and to ensure they 'clearly communicated the standard of quality that would be achieved'.
