Principal Sponsor
WorldDAB

The ABU is delighted to confirm that WorldDAB will once again be the Principal  Sponsor of the ABU DBS in 2016.

WorldDAB will ensure that attendees hear from a line-up of international speakers who can share firsthand experience of the various phases of trialing, planning and rolling out DAB+ digital radio services in Europe, Asia Pacific and elsewhere.   Topics will include the integration of digital radio in connected cars and Smart devices – which are so much a part of everyday life – especially in this tech-savvy region. Also, the untapped potential of hybrid radio will be reviewed – combining the power of broadcast and the engagement of the mobile internet.

The unmissable WorldDAB workshop will take a different format this year, with a more hands-on approach to helping broadcasters and regulators work together to plan the digitisation of radio, even before the Digital Switchover of TV is complete. 



  






   

Innovating Digital Connections

Until recently, a viewer had to use a personal computer or laptop to watch online services such as catch-up TV or movies on demand. Now, with Connected TV, it is possible to access content from the comfort of your sofa and watch your favourite shows on television. 

The last few years have seen an increase in media industry activities around Connected TV due to its growing demand among audiences. Content owners, broadcasters and technology providers are working together to find business models that will make Connected TV commercially viable and change the way we consume radio and television content.

The ABU Digital Broadcasting Symposium 2016 aims to stimulate thinking among delegates on the business and technology strategies that will safeguard and grow radio and television services in the highly competitive connected era and discuss the roadmap for providing effective integrated services to audiences. 

The three-day event will address the multiplatform delivery of radio and  TV in the future,  the software defined platforms, networks and services, the transformation in the broadcasting field,  the immersive audio and television experiences, the emergence of OTT as a pay and FTA service and on how should the broadcasters embrace the ‘digital-first’ mind-set of younger audiences.
