3rd - 7th December 2018, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

We are pleased to announce the ABU-AIBD "5th Regional Workshop on Engineering Fundamentals for Broadcasters”, from the 3rd – 7th December 2018 in Kuala Lumpur.

Media and broadcast technology and infrastructure have been evolving rapidly in recent years. This has brought many challenges to broadcast and media institutions. Not only traditional broadcast infrastructures, but also human resource requirements have changed and are changing continuously. This training aims to address both of these issues for new personnel who have developed a passion for this field.

The workshop aims to provide basic engineering fundamentals for broadcast engineers and technologists who are at the beginning of their careers. The workshop facilitates participants to learn about the current trends and advancements in broadcast technologies. It will also focus on fundamentals of IT, audio and video systems, engineering techniques and applications. The knowledge gained will help participants to build confidence in operating in an evolving media value chain.

By the end of the workshop the participants will be able to explain and apply in their work:

  • Basics of Audio and Video
  • Concepts of analogue to digital signal conversion
  • Signal processing in the media value chain
