SABC taking part in Mediatech Africa’s exhibition

As a platinum sponsor of the industry event, SABC encourages staff to take advantage of the opportunity to engage with the latest in cutting edge technology. With the intent to go digital in the near future and to keep up with broadcasting trends, this exceptional opportunity can equip First Citizens with all the knowledge needed to make the move from analogue to digital a success.

Mediatech Africa 2013 is delighted to announce that The Southern African Broadcasting Association (SABA) Digital Broadcasting Infrastructure and Platforms Workshop is now part of the exciting line up at this year's advanced technology trade show.

SABA's Digital Broadcasting Infrastructure and Platform for Africa is the international workshop specially designed to provide broadcasters—TV and Radio, as well as other industry stakeholders— with crucial information and industry knowledge on how to successfully build and manage a viable digital broadcasting infrastructure. This event will provide participants with a tailored and credible blueprint for the implementation of digital terrestrial television (DTT).

SABC employees could benefit a lot from the workshop as the key themes will cover:

• DTT: transmission, reception and modulation options and choices
• Technology for Digital Radio and associated services
• IPTV and triple-play services
• DTH satellite broadcasting
• Modelling for successful digital broadcasting services
• Digital broadcasting frequencies and spectrum plans
• Issues in the multi-channel, multiscreen Environment
• Building viable local content platforms for digital TV and Radio

Relevant feedback from the group discussions will be compiled and condensed to create a practical checklist that will serve as a resource for African broadcasters as they navigate their way through the process of DTT deployment and implementation.
