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

 

DIGITALEUROPE's Executive Board has reviewed the logo business of the association, in particular in relation to the financial risks of the activities and future logo developments.

After extensive evaluation, the Executive Board has come to the conclusion that DIGITALEUROPE should discontinue all logos activities with immediate effect. DIGITALEUROPE is compelled to terminate all logo license agreements.

DIGITALEUROPE hereby gives notice that it is exiting the logo business and terminating the logo licence agreements effective on 31 March 2019, the termination date of the licences.

After the termination of the licences, the use of the logos on devices, on packing materials, in advertising and other sales and marketing literature, and on websites is no longer permitted. Licensees should take this into account in their production and distribution planning. The remaining winding down period provides licensees with ample time to do so.

Products manufactured before the termination date may be distributed by the licensees and their affiliates until the end of June 2019. Products manufactured before the termination date that have already been placed on the market and are no longer with the licensees and their affiliates may continue bearing the logo. There is no requirement to un-label these products and change the user manuals. However, marketing materials and information on websites should either no longer refer to the terminated logos or mention that the logos were terminated. Products manufactured after the termination date shall not bear the logo. No new models will be registered after December 2018.
