DTC's Digital TV Transition Group—with expertise in government relations, retailer and consumer education, market conditions, equipment suppliers and technology—has worldwide experience aiding broadcasters, government regulatory bodies and other stakeholders through this complicated, multi-layered process.
Through a fine-tuned, strategic process that involves planning, education, research and technical design, DTC consults on TV transitions for countries of all sizes. Regardless of a country's size, the stakes are high —whether planning and implementing an analog TV shut-off or a transition to a new digital format. That's why we treat every project as unique, giving special consideration to the conditions, culture, economics and goals of that country.
DTC was on the leading edge of the analog-to-DTV transition and, once again, is leading efforts to establish standards for the next generation of broadcast TV and technologies. From modulation schemes, distribution mechanisms, compatibility, Internet integration, streaming and more, DTC is working with early next-generation technology leaders to set technical standards and processes that will aid migration efforts in the years ahead. DTC is working closely with the industry’s key influencers who are driving the forward-thinking efforts to continue to evolve how television is delivered worldwide.
DTC's field of knowledge ranges from consumer-related issues to the intricacies of the technical aspects of DTV networks, in general, and the transition to DTV, in particular.
