Committed to connecting the world



db-img.jpgTransition from analogue to digital broadcasting already begun in many developing countries is expected to reach peak level in the next cycle in Regions 2 and 3 and finalized in Region 1. It is expected that requests for assistance from BDT will increase accordingly.

The objective of BDT work in this area is to enable developing countries to achieve smooth migration from analogue to digital broadcasting including terrestrial TV, mobile TV and sound broadcasting, and follow with the countries the post-transition activities like e.g. introducing new broadcasting services, allocation of the digital dividend. In particular BDT is providing assistance on policy and regulatory frameworks for digital broadcasting and organising regional meetings for ITU members on the use of spectrum for broadcasting or other services.
