Santiago de Compostela, 2nd February 2010. After nine months on the road, more than 30,000 kilometres behind us, one hundred cities visited in four different countries and more than 2,000 visitors, the Televés HDTV Tour is about to arrive in France.
The mobile unit aimed at providing European technicians and installers with the technological foundations of high definition television (HDTV) will stop in France for the first time tomorrow, February 3rd, namely in Perpignan. This will be the kick-off for a 10-city tour, which will take place during the month of February (please see below for a comprehensive tour calendar).
On each of the stops, the HDTV Tour will show how to capture the high-definition signal from the satellite, how to measure the different parameters involved and how to process it so that it reaches the screen in the best possible conditions, thus totally profiting from the exceptional image and sound quality offered by this technology. These technical presentations will be conducted using units and equipment developed and marketed by Televés, such as the DAT HD BOSS antenna, which includes intelligent technology, the H45 field meter, the first of its kind to include digital processing or the T05 modules, with which all types of opening sequences can be prepared with technology that has been specifically conceived for HDTV.
Success in four countries
During its visit to France, the Televés HDTV Tour hopes to garner the same success it got in the countries it has already been to: Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom and Ireland. In these four countries, the Televés mobile educational unit has been visited by a great number of technicians, installers and distributors, as well as teachers and students from universities and vocational training centres. It should not be forgotten that this initiative offers a unique opportunity to learn about the possibilities of high definition television, the actual TV of future, as well as to become acquainted with its technological foundations.
The tour can also be followed, step by step, by internet users by simply logging into www.hdtv-tour.com , which includes all the information regarding scheduled dates and venues for each of the stops. Furthermore, the website offers detailed accounts and pictures of the activities conducted on each of the stops left behind.

Thus, Televés remains faithful to its two defining features throughout its career: an active involvement in all the great international initiatives seeking technological progress in radio and television and the commitment to rendering these technologies accessible to all households.
