AEC challenges for analogue switch off

  1. 1. AEC challenges for analogue switch off<br />TodeMitreski<br />Ohrid, may 2011<br />
  2. 2. The digital switchover process is underway<br /><ul><li>Around the world, countries have launched their digital terrestrial television (DTT) services
  3. 3. And begun planning to switch off their analogue networks
  4. 4. A few pioneer countries in Europe have already completed the process</li></li></ul><li>The digital switchover process is underway<br /><ul><li>analogue switch-off is not easy
  5. 5. Ending the transmission of analogue services</li></ul>can have dire consequences should viewers not be adequately prepared<br /><ul><li>The process of analogue switch-off will differ in countries</li></li></ul><li>The digital switchover process is underway<br /><ul><li>The experiences of countries that have completed analogue switch-off
  6. 6. Understanding which approaches work best, as well as pitfalls that should be avoided, can help ensure a successful process</li></li></ul><li>Goals of analogue switch-off<br /><ul><li>Switching the terrestrial platform from analogue to digital technology is no easy feat
  7. 7. The full broadcast network must be converted
  8. 8. The process is fully justified because digital switchover brings many benefits to the government, broadcast community, and general public</li></li></ul><li>GE06 Allotment zones<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. Spectrum efficiency<br /><ul><li>By converting the terrestrial television platform from analogue to digital technology, countries can benefit from the increased spectrum efficiency offered by digital technology
  11. 11. To ensure the maximum benefits of digital switchover, countries in a given region should agree to convert to digital broadcasting if possible using a coordinated approach
  12. 12. The agreement sets 17 June 2015 as the date after which countries will no longer be required to protect the analogue services of neighbouring countries against</li></ul>interference and be able to freely use frequencies assigned for digital services<br />
  13. 13. Securing the future of the terrestrial platform<br /><ul><li>Viewers have many different options for accessing television services
  14. 14. The emergence of new television platforms has provided viewers</li></ul>with new television opportunities, such as more choice and premium content in comparison with the terrestrial platform<br /><ul><li>The launch of a new multichannel service, often freely available, has helped the terrestrial platform to successfully compete with other television platforms</li></li></ul><li>Where to begin the process?<br /><ul><li>Determining where to begin the analogue switch-off process varies between countries
  15. 15. Some countries, have begun the process in large urban areas with high population densities but few transmitters
  16. 16. Other countries, especially those with a high reliance on the terrestrial television platform, have opted to begin the process in areas with low population densities
  17. 17. In some countries, analogue switch-off has been tested in pilot areas</li></li></ul><li>National approach to analogue switch-off<br /><ul><li>In a national approach to analogue switch-off, analogue services are ended simultaneously across the whole country
  18. 18. All viewers benefit from the advantages of digital switchover, as viewers are treated equally and given the same access to services but equally all suffer from the need to equip for digital</li></li></ul><li>Issued licenses for using frequencies for broadcasting services in VHF and UHV bands for whole territory of Macedonia <br /><ul><li>Number of issued licenses for analog TV: 549
  19. 19. Number of issued licenses for digital TV: 30</li></li></ul><li>Allotment – Zones<br />

  39. 39. Cooperation among neighbor countries in the process of digitalization –WHY?<br /><ul><li>Different dates of launching of DVB-T in the countries of our region;
  40. 40. Because of the large number of issued licenses in Macedonia (national and local TV stations) we were not able to assign fully digital multiplexes according GE-06;
  41. 41. Occurrence of problems in border zones when all the neighbors will begin with simulcast ;
  42. 42. AEC signed memorandums of understanding with regulatory bodies in neighboring countries: Bulgaria, Kosovo, Albania, Serbia and Greece;
