3 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November Why the migration raise issues?

4 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November Why Digital Migration Issues? High Cost and Long Term Over the last 10 years, broadcasting has been experiencing a revolution through the influence of digitization Transition from A to D takes at least a few years, costs so much and has the immense influence on society, economy and industries It is essential for each country to make a project plan (roadmap) of the migration However, there is a big difference in the digital broadcasting transition process among countries

5 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November Digital Dividend The released spectrum after the analogue services switch-off Digital Dividend could be used for: - Digital Terrestrial TV and MTV - Improving the coverage of digital TV transmissions, - Wireless broadband services - Enhancing sound and picture qualify, in particular HDTV Immense economic potential : Billion Euro (European Commission estimation)

6 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November 2011 Key issues to Digital Transition Policy and Regulatory : - Licensing, Network Operators - Public TV services, Commercial TVs - Analogue Switch off (ASO), etc. Economical : - Introduction of new business model - Transition costs, subsidizing vulnerable people Technical : - Standards ( DVB, ISDB, ATSC ) - Compression technique (MPEC2/MPEG4) - Spectrum availability, Coverage areas 6

7 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November 2011 GE-06 Agreement : for 120 countries in Europe + Africa The Geneva plan(GE-06) is an all-digital plan for use of the band 3 and 4,5 after the Analogue TV Switch-off. GE-06 makes clear that analogue TV services in UHF Band 4,5 will not be protected against interference after 17 June 2015.

8 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November 2011 Transition map

9 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November 2011 World overview: DTTV adoption

10 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November ITU Activities & Outputs for Digital Migration

11 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November ITU Activities Assist developing countries in transiting to digital broadcasting - provide consulting of broadcasting infrastructure development - develop reports and guidelines - Provide training Close cooperation with international and regional broadcasting organizations (WBU, ABU, AIBD, EBU) - regular workshops and seminars

12 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November ITU Outputs Spectrum allocation (WRC/RRC) Wave Propagation recommendation REPORT ITU-R BT.2140 :Transition from analogue to digital Terrestrial broadcasting ITU-D Question 11-2/2 Examination of terrestrial digital broadcasting technologies… ITU-D SG 2s Report on question 9-2/2 Identification of study topics in the ITU-T and ITU-D study groups which are of particular interest to developing countries

13 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November Spectrum Management Guideline - Handbook and recommendation : Spectrum management, Computer Aided Techniques for Spectrum Management, Spectrum Monitoring SMS4DC - Purpose: to assist developing countries in efficiently managing their radio spectrum - Features: Engineering and administrative applications, Results on Google Earth, linkage with monitoring system - Annual License fee: CHF 4,630(1 Workstation) Member State Admin & Sector Member : -15% Admin of Least Developing Countries : -80% The Number of license country : over 50

14 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November Digital Broadcasting Roadmap Project in Africa

15 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November Introduction of the Project in Africa The objective of the project To assist the African countries in making their own roadmap to shift smoothly from analogue to DTTB and to introduce MTV 1 st Phase of the project Period : January – July 2008 Survey on broadcasting & transition situation in Africa 2 nd Phase of the project Period : November October 2009 Guidelines were developed for assisting the transition - Questionnaires has been sent to all African countries, 23 countries responded, 3 beneficiary countries(Mali, Ethiopia and Angola) have been selected

16 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November rd Phase of the roadmap project Period : January 2010 – February 2012 Roadmaps were customized for selected countries based on developed guidelines - Roadmaps of Digital Broadcasting for Angola, Ethiopia and Mali were completed Launched Integrated Workshop - Deliver and share the three countries cases and the roadmaps to the other countries in Africa Feed back the process and results of migration in 3 pilot countries

17 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November 2011 Survey conducted to assess the current situation on digital broadcasting - Questionnaires has been sent to 38 countries, 22 responded, 5 beneficiary countries (Cambodia, Mongolia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Tonga) selected Adaptation of the guidelines : Guidelines customized for Asia Pacific Development of roadmap for the selected beneficiary countries : December 2011 Integrated workshop : Sharing the roadmaps and Case studies, training the local experts (March 2012) 17 Roadmap project in ASP

18 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November 2011 Guidelines designed to provide Information and recommendations on policy, regulation, technologies, network planning, customer awareness and business planning For free download at HDBGUIDELINES /enhttp://www.itu.int/publ/D- HDBGUIDELINES /en 18 Guideline

19 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November 2011 Functional layer of the Guideline A. Policy and regulation B. Analogue switch-off (ASO) C. Market and business development D. DTTB & MTV networks E. Roadmap development Each layer has 3 to 13 functional building blocks. 19 Guideline

20 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November 2011 Guideline 20 Functional Building Blocks under each layer

21 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November ITU Future Plan for Assistance of the Migration

22 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November Future plan Survey regularly on digital broadcasting migration Develop broadcasting policy toolkit Develop training material and provide on-line training Develop portal site to provide all relevant information on the migration Cooperate actively with other international and regional organizations for assisting the Digital Migration

23 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November …and At first, this roadmap project focus on the African region, the outputs, knowledge and experience of it will be used in other regions widely e.g. in ASP Especially the guidelines are a good reference for all countries which need to develop their own roadmaps ITU is also making its efforts to develop this kind of roadmap project in other regions

24 Committed to Connecting the World International Telecommunication Union 29 November 2011 Conclusion Digital Migration is a complex process Every country should be ready to handle the complicity Successful Migration requires Strong leadership of government Firm decision of analogue TV switch-off date Close cooperation of Regulator and market parties Clear and timely regulatory framework Adequate information and assistance to viewers Explore the potential of the Digital Dividend 24
