Today, everyone wants a bigger TV screen. However, having a big screen means having better and more immersive audio to satisfy your audience. It is important for broadcasters to look into these new formats and systems and how they impact the broadcasting chain.
EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan
Every two years, the EBU develops a roadmap for technology and innovation activities based on the requirements and inputs given by EBU Members. The result of this roadmap is our bi-annual EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan. Strategic programmes and project groups are set up to focus on specific areas of interest.
