About HD Pictures

HD Pictures began online in 1999, long before most people had ever heard the term, "HDTV." As one of the first sites on the Internet about HDTV, HD Pictures was founded by Stuart Calcote, a 29-time Emmy Award winning television producer/director and one of the first producer/directors to produce television programs in high definition. Originally, HD Pictures was exclusively a resource for television industry professionals, providing technical information about HD production equipment and services. As the public began to hear about HDTV and the transition to DTV in the early 2000s, potential consumers of HDTV products began visiting HD Pictures to find out what all the fuss was about. Having gone through a recent renovation, HD Pictures has now evolved into a consumer information resource providing information about HDTV and the coming 3DTV revolution.
