The CTU, which has been mandated by Caribbean Community (CARICOM) governments to address the issue of digital switchover for the Caribbean as a matter of urgency, is a supporting partner in DBSF Caribbean 2012.
The unfolding issues and strategies for transitioning from analogue to digital will redefine the face of broadcasting and mark a major milestone for the region. The conference steers broadcast planners through the well-planned and inclusive process that is a critical success factor for national undertakings throughout the Caribbean region.
DBSF Caribbean has a well-balanced plenary and workshop format, designed to build capacity on regulatory, funding, content and transmission issues, and brings to bear the combined competence of CTO and its sister agency, the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association.
Workshop themes include:
- Transmission trials: comparison of modulation systems
- Styling and repurposing content for the digital era
- Funding terrestrial infrastructure and consumer terminals
- Regulating the transition from analogue to digital
- Switchover implementation checklists
The event dovetails with the Annual General Assembly and CEO Forum of the Caribbean Broadcasting Union, held from August 15 to 17 at the same venue and thus benefits from the presence of CEOs and senior management from the islands’ broadcasting stations, which are primed for switchover to digital transmission.
