DTG Update—Spectrum Access Forum & Summit 2016

Spectrum Access Forum Update

The recent DTG Spectrum Access Forum meeting was well attended by a wide range of organisations including Ofcom who presented plans for new Spectrum Allocations for PMSE and for 700 MHz clearance.

There were also updates from chairs of some of the new ETSI specifications being developed in time for the introduction of the Radio Equipment Directive. New specifications are being written for broadcast radio, DTT receivers, DTT amplifiers and DTT transmitters to name but a few. Products falling into these categories will be required to meet the new specifications from June 13th 2017.

All presentations from the meeting can be accessed from the DTG Member’s Area.

DTG Summit 2016

Re-engineering for tomorrow’s TV consumer: turning a fragmented market into a global opportunity.

The UK media technology industry is in a unique place at the moment, and across the industry there are many differing views on exactly where we sit.

Fragmentation on all levels, from manufacturing to content, broadcasting and retail, is dividing the industry, confusing viewers, and appears to be helping big, global players move even further towards world domination. But is it? Is fragmentation actually creating a springboard for greater opportunities?

At the DTG Summit on Thursday, we will ask the question: where does the future of the UK media and technology industry sit? The aim of the day is to ensure that our industry remains a global leader in this fast-changing world.

We will explore the threats the industry faces and collaborate towards a solution. The DTG has gathered a broad range of speakers to debate the issues affecting us today and tomorrow and the Summit will help establish exactly what needs to be accomplished to bring global opportunity into our sights and to overcome, or benefit from fragmentation.

We are all part of the industry and we all hold the solution. Join us later this week.
