- Digital broadcasting
The transition of the terrestrial television broadcasting from the analogue to the digital is a government policy, aims at gaining spectrum efficiency, which will bring consumer benefits by giving the consumers wider choice in television channels and services; industry benefits by introducing new revenue streams and business models; and government benefits by releasing the DIGITAL DIVIDEND at market value and get money for the public expenditure. The analogue to the digital broadcasting transition is a new and a complex phenomenon that requires deep understanding and analysis about the conceptual framework for the transition. Unless the governments and regulators understand correctly concepts of the transition it will be difficult for them to implement it correctly as per GE 06 Agreements as it is witnessed now most of the African countries failed to implement the GE06 Agreement.
At the end of the course, participants will have thorough understanding of the conceptual framework for the analogue to the digital broadcasting transition. The thorough understanding of the conceptual framework for the analogue to the digital broadcasting transition will help Member States to implement effectively the GE 06 Agreement.
