The Government of Barbados through the Telecommunications Unit, Division of Energy and Telecommunications will host the weeklong Regional Workshop and Frequency Coordination Meeting on Transition to Digital Terrestrial Television and the Digital Dividend at the Savannah Beach Hotel from Monday 21st May 2012 to Friday 25th.
The Workshop/Meeting will be held under the auspices of the ITU (International Telecommunications Union), CTU (Caribbean Telecommunications Union) and the CBU (Caribbean Broadcasting Union).
In the archipelago of the Caribbean, it is critically important that our sovereign countries collaborate and not only share experiences on the issues of frequency coordination, but also learn from those countries which have already implemented the new technologies to be deployed in the Digital Terrestrial Television.
Participating countries may also benefit from economy of scale by standardising equipment. They may also avoid many of the pitfalls of the earlier implementers.
The ITU has therefore engaged a cadre of experts in the various fields to ensure that the Workshop/Meeting would be a success.
The Conference is geared to Regulators, Broadcasters, Mobile Operators, ICT Professionals etc. It is vitally important that persons involved with the transition to Digital Terrestrial Television attend. If you have not as yet responded to the invitation from the Chief Telecommunications Officer, you may contact his office at 434 2502 to register your attendance.
The agenda for the Regional Workshop and Frequency Coordination on the Transition to Digital Terrestrial Television and the Digital Dividend can be found below.
The Chief Telecommunications Officer invites your participation and looks forward to a successful Conference.
