why digital
Why digital
  • Greater control over channel performance
  • High quality video and audio
  • A greater range and diversity of services
  • New commercial opportunity
  • New income and new service through saved spectrum

regulatory issues
Regulatory issues
  • Setting up a new media policy

- introduction of new digital broadcasting media like digital terrestrial broadcasting, mobile broadcasting, IPTV…

  • Developing essential regulation required for a fair competitive environment among different media

International Telecommunication Union

technical issues
Technical issues
  • Spectrum allocation & frequency assignment
  • Selection of suitable standard
  • Nationwide broadcasting network plan
  • Training for qualified experts

International Telecommunication Union

stages of migration 1
Stages of migration/1
  • Phase one : starting introduction of digital television transmission
  • No further analog license issued for terrestrial broadcasting
  • Regulation should be reviewed to reflect the implication of digital transmission
  • Special frequency channels will be allocated to the current broadcasters to provide for the simulcasting in digital format
  • The possibilities relative to infrastructure-sharing arrangements involving a number or all operators will be explorered

International Telecommunication Union

stages of migration 2
Stages of migration/2
  • Phase Two : The simulcast period

- The broadcaster will be encouraged to establish a migration plan

- National programs will be transmitted as must carry, free-to–view on any digital terrestrial platform that may be available

International Telecommunication Union

stages of migration 3
Stages of migration/3
  • Phase three: Analogue Cut-off

- all current broadcasters will need to be migrated to a digital platform

- households will need to upgrade their TV sets to digital e.g. by set top boxes or new TV sets

- depending on the migration option selected by the broadcasters/regulators and the market reaction to the introduction of DTTV

explanatory and organizational activities of administration
Explanatory and organizational activities of administration
  • Provision of public understanding
  • A voluntary switching phase has fundamental importance for migration
  • A compulsory phase will have to follow in order to complete switch over
  • Administration should
    • explain to citizens why analog broadcasting needs to be switched off
    • clearly communicate to citizens the time scale
    • providing assistance e.g. in subsidizing set-top boxes
