Dumb Question
What does the UN have to do with this?  Isn't this more of a private sector kind of thing?  I am sincerely inquisitive if anyone has any insight.

Re: Dumb Question
The ITU is a UN agency, but describes itself as unique in that it includes private sector members. So the organization includes UN countries, various national regulatory bodies as well as 700 private sector technology companies.

Re: Dumb Question
Thanks so much for the additional detail. I wasn't quite sure how ITU and the UN were connected.

Re: Dumb Question
The ITU is a weird one - as I understand it, it actually pre-dates the UN. Was set up to coordinate telegraphs sent between countries, and then was absorbed as a UN agency much later. But as @afwriter points out, it seems mostly worked by private sector companies and academic institutions now.

Re: Dumb Question
As someone who takes HDR photos, I understand the implications of this. 

Unlike some other technologies that have flopped in the home like 3D TVs, HDR is something useful. To the eye, it makes things seem more "real" because of color vibrancy. I think once people experience this, they will pay for it.

Re: Dumb Question
Adi,

The ITU is as you say -- an organization that predates the UN -- but that's not particularly weird. About a third of UN agencies were absorbed from freestanding international bodies or inherited from the League of Nations. That was by design; in 1945 there was a feeling that the League of Nations had tried to do too many things de novo, often duplicating existing successful bodies, and that that had been one of many reasons for its failure.  Hence the UN's organizing principle -- if it already exists and it's working, paint it light blue and bring it on in.
