DigitalEurope is a European organization that includes 58 major corporations and 36 national trade associations with several working groups involved in policy.[1][2] In total DigitalEurope represents over 10,000 companies with a combined revenue of over 1 trillion Euro.[2]


DigitalEurope was formed in 1999 as EICTA, the European Information & Communications Technology Industry Association by the consolidation of the two former European federations of the information and telecommunications industries, ECTEL and EUROBIT."[3]

Reflecting the movement of the marketplace and the rapid increase of co-operation and fusion found therein, EICTA next expanded the scope of its representation to include the consumer electronics industry. On October 1, 2001, the association merged its activities with EACEM – the European Association of Consumer Electronics Manufacturers.[4] The new joint association changed its name to the European Information, Communications and Consumer Electronics Technology Industry Association, but kept its original acronymic name: EICTA.[4]

On March 12, 2009 EICTA was rebranded DigitalEurope to better reflect the importance of the consumer electronics sector in Europe and its slogan "Building Digital Europe".[3][5]

On September 5, 2014, DigitalEurope released their Ultra HD logo for companies that meet their technical requirements.[6][7][8] The technical requirements for the Ultra HD logo is that the display must have a resolution of at least 3840×2160, a video signal path that does not reduce the resolution, a minimum color space of Rec. 709, and a HDMI input that supports HDCP 2.2 content protection.[7]
