EBU technology chief calls for joint defence of broadcast spectrum

The EBU’s director of technology and innovation, Lieven Vermaele, has called for joint action in the defence of spectrum for broadcasting worldwide.

Addressing sessions at the Asian Broadcasting Union’s general assembly in Seoul, Vermaele proposed that the DigiTAG organization might be an ideal forum for such cooperation.

The future of spectrum for terrestrial broadcasting has been called into question by demands from some emerging economy countries that the frequencies should be used for mobile broadband applications.
