Broadcast Engineering Forum 6-25-2010

The FCC has invited a number of broadcast industry engineers and technical experts in related fields to convene in four working sessions intended to address certain technical challenges and opportunities facing the broadcast industry today.

One of the goals of the National Broadband Plan is to evaluate the reallocation of spectrum from the broadcast television bands, including rule-makings regarding service areas, distance separations, channel-sharing, and other mechanisms to achieve its spectrum reallocation goals. In support of such future rule-makings, the FCC has invited a number of broadcast industry engineers and technical experts in related fields to convene in four working sessions intended to address certain technical challenges and opportunities facing the broadcast industry today.

The topics for discussion will be: 

  •  Cellularization of Broadcast Architecture;
  •  Methodologies for Repacking the TV Band;
  •  Improvements in VHF Reception; and
  •  Advancements in Compression Technology.   

Following these working sessions, each group will publicly report on its preliminary findings and recommendations with respect to its assigned topic.
