Digital Broadcasting Migration Strategy - Consultation Document PDF Print E-mail

ImageThis document provides a framework that will ensure a smooth transition from analogue to digital broadcasting. The framework focuses on transition to digital terrestrial television broadcasting and gives little congnizance to radio given that the latter is less critical during this transition process.

The transition process will involve transfereing services that operate on analogue networks to digitally based networks over a specified period of time. In Ugnada, December 2012 has been proposed as the target switch-off date for analogue broadcasting systems. It is envisaged that the set date will give time to address any issues which may arise before the internationallyagreed switch off date of June 2015. At the end of the transition period, the following broadobjectives would have been achedved:

a) To create and separate the market segment into infrastructre servces prvision and Content services provision;

b) To ensure access to quality broadcasting services;
c) To ensure efficient use of spectrum;
d) To ensure environmental protection during the transition and beyond;
e) To develop human resource skills necessary for the digital transition and thereafter.
