The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) of Thailand has its mandates to put in place policy and regulatory frameworks and ensuring digital broadcasting services in Thailand. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), pursuant to the outcomes of WTDC-2010, is also mandated to assist member countries and regulators in smooth transition from analogue to digital terrestrial TV broadcasting.
Considering the above and in order for Thailand to smoothly migrate from analogue to digital broadcasting, ITU and NBTC are implementing a project on transition from analogue to digital TV broadcasting in Thailand. Under this project, the following results are expected, among others:
- Revision and finalization of roadmap on the transition from analogue to digital broadcasting;
- Policy and regulatory frameworks for DTTB including spectrum-related and broadcasting service licence-related matters;
- Technical evaluation of a trial/pilot transmission of digital terrestrial TV broadcasting project in Thailand;
- Enhanced skills of the Office of NBTC, and other relevant local stakeholders.
