ITU Regional Seminar for Europe on Transition to Digital Broadcasting and Digital Dividend


ITU, in collaboration with the National Media and Infocommunications Authority of Hungary, is organizing the Regulatory Seminar for Europe on “Transition to Digital Terrestrial Television Broadcasting and Digital Dividend” to be held from
5 to 7 November 2012 in Budapest, Hungary. The venue of the meeting is Hotel Mercure Buda, Budapest.

This Seminar is an integral part of the European Regional Initiative on Digital Broadcasting for Europe that searches to provide a basis for the exchange of best practices encountered on the path of digital migration, and the ways to maximize the economic and social benefits of the digital dividend. It will also consider how to further develop a unified approach in order to enhance the advantages that it will bring to the region of Central-Eastern Europe. The Seminar will discuss, in particular:



  • Digital terrestrial television transition;

  • Licensing policies and criteria;

  • Choice between DVBT and DVBT-2;

  • Utilization of the Digital dividend

  • Decision about introduction of the HDTV;

  • Recuperation and safe disposal of obsolete analogue equipment.

 This meeting was targeted at the staff of the Ministries and Regulatory Authorities, in particular those who require very good understanding of the ITU role and functions in the telecommunication/ICT sector for accomplishing their tasks.
