Commonwealth Digital Broadcasting Caribbean Forum 2017
Tue, 9 May 2017, 09:00 – Thu, 11 May 2017, 16:00 EST
The 2nd Commonwealth Digital Broadcasting Caribbean Forum 2017 (DBCF) is due to be held on 9th – 11th May 2017 at Terra Nova All Suite Hotel, 17 Waterloo Rd, Kingston, Jamaica. This event is being organised by the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) and hosted by Jamaica’s Broadcasting Commission.
This event is a continuation of the successful Digital Broadcasting Switchover Forum events that have taken place over the last decade – the new title for the event recognises the changes that have taken place in broadcasting during that time.
The Digital Broadcasting Caribbean Forum 2017 will provide an excellent opportunity for participants to learn from each other about successes in the field of digital broadcasting, as well as the challenges posed for the future. Solutions to these challenges and the opportunities available for digital broadcasting will be examined through interactive sessions led by global knowledge leaders. The audience will be composed of policymakers, regulators, broadcasters, content developers, network infrastructure providers, operators, equipment manufacturers and opinion leaders.
This is a key event for stakeholders across the Caribbean, helping them to deal with many aspects of digital switchover, including:
- DBSO and the status of the Caribbean
- Choosing a Standard: Considerations and Implications
- Upgrading the network to Digital;
- Policy and regulatory interventions on digital switchover that protect public interest;
- Convergence, content evolution and multiple delivery platforms;
- Innovations in Broadcasting;
- Digital Radio;
- Alternative approaches to digital transformation; and
- Investing in the Digital Market
