The World Radiocommunications Conference (WRC-12) at the ITU concluded having set a course for a second digital dividend, i.e. the allocation of the 700 MHz band to mobile services.
The EBU SP on Spectrum Management organized this workshop to explain the conference decisions, explore the consequences for Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) and identify objectives to be achieved to sustain a viable terrestrial broadcasting platform.
The broadcast community was invited to participate in the workshop, to share its views and concerns, and jointly identify actions to be taken and the associated timeline.
