CEPT organization Project team FM 24

5 5 15 member states 10 new members 3 candidate members The European Union Resolution that insists on successful introduction of Digital Television in Europe Convinced that DVB in conjunction with MHP is an essential instrument for access to services of the information society Supporting R&D projects Commissioning studies for policy development i.a.: Digital Switchover in Broadcasting Development of digital television in the EU Spectrum management in the field of broadcasting (in progress) More information: europa.eu.int 2. Interest in digital BC in Europe European parliament European Commission

6 6 Digital Transmissions DVB-TT-DAB National service launch date announced or on air711 Frequency planning or test transmissions going on2011 Considering33 No information1520 DVB-TT-DAB Situation: June 2003 More information: 2. Interest in digital BC in Europe

7 7 In Europe there are a number of agreements that are considered an adequate basis in order to get transition to digital started BC Agreements Relevant to Europe CH97 WI95- rev MA02 Multilateral agreement Coordination rules for DVB-T including conversions from analogue into digital No Plan attached; Plan is ST61 Not optimal solution for all-digital situation Reference for protection Updated ST61does not always reflect the coordinated situation ST61 allows DVB-T entries Multilateral agreement Plan and procedures for T-DAB in Band III ST61 Sound BC stations in BIII cannot enter ST61 Guidance for DVB-T coordination needed 3. CEPT opinions

8 8 In order to meet the objective of a fully digital broadcasting infrastructure, the existing agreements are by no means ideal From letter of CEPT administrations to ITU (early 2000) asking for a revision of the Stockholm agreement RRC 04/05 Digital broad- casting New frequency plans for the all digital situation DVB-T & T-DAB in Band III; DVB-T in Band IV/V No protection of analogue TV in development of Plans, but in the implementation phase Incompatibilities in transition to be solved bilaterally Limited transition phase, short simulcasting period Flexible Future proof Not restricting evolution of broadcasting By means of regulatory instruments Taking account of different market situations and time scales in countries in the planning area Timely 2 nd session early 2006 Entry into force soon after 2 nd session 3. CEPT opinions In CEPT countries

9 9 Rooftop reception Existing sites Universal coverage? Indoor reception Dense networks Urban areas? Mobile reception Dense networks Motorways? Studies indicate In most countries full access to BIII & IV/V will be needed for 6 or more multiplexes and full coverage Planning for portable and mobile requires considerably more channels than for rooftop for comparable coverage SFNs partly compensate the higher channel requirement Different Market Situations 3. CEPT opinions Each country should make its own choice, depending on market

10 10 Evolution of Broadcasting High quality broadcasting Large flat screens & HDTV? Interactive services Return path in- or out of band? Hand-held terminals IP-datacasting? Some examples Bitrate requirement 2 to 4 times higher than for traditional screens New coding schemes will reduce bitrate requirement Out of band (GSM or UMTS): no or limited impact on planning In-band return path will limit DVB-T services (and also SAB) High field strength requirement Modified system (DVB-H) under development in DVB group 3. CEPT opinions

11 11 HDTV Large flat screens Hand held devices In band return path Dense(r) networks New systems More services Possible future requirements Mask concept Art 4 Allotments Modification of entries in Plans: On basis of consultation with affected administrations Proven powerful tool Other systems allowed than indicated in Plan entry: Not causing more interference Not claiming more protection Similar provision in GE84 Freedom in network structure using SFN: Outgoing interference not more than permitted to the allotment by the Plan Less time required at conference Regulatory Instruments 3. CEPT opinions

12 12 Thank you for your attention ITU TG6/8 Report ITU TG 6/8 report is very good basis for RRC 04 ITU and in particular Mr Perpar and his team is congratulated with the results 3.
