EBU members and other broadcasters rely on radio spectrum for content creation and distribution. Whether it is assessing the health hazards from wireless production tools, broadcast distribution or Wi-Fi, the EIC group provides advice to members on the best ways to ensure compliance with regulations, and supports the protection of both people, and services vital for broadcasting.
Protecting services from interference
Content creation and distribution relies on access to good quality radio spectrum that is free from sources of harmful interference. Interference to our wireless production and distribution technologies not only originates from other licenced radio services but from the multitude of electrical and electronic devices we all use every day. In an increasingly connected digital world we must also ensure that technology used to deliver internet services are also protected. In order to achieve these aims members of the EIC, on behalf of EBU members, represent your interests at international bodies such as the ITU, standards development organizations (SDOs) and the European Union.
The Project Group on Electromagnetic Interference and Compatibility (EIC) is part of the EBU's Strategic Program on Spectrum.
This group helps Members to monitor the implications of electromagnetic interference and compatibility. We do so by providing expertise, sharing best practice and engaging with industry to discuss important matters like broadcaster receiver performance. We also represent your interests at international bodies such as the ITU, standards development organizations (SDOs) and the European Union.
