Geneva - Dec 12, 2012 - DigiTAG will re-launch as the association that defends and promotes terrestrial broadcasting - and the spectrum it needs - on a worldwide basis. The organization held its general assembly at the EBU in Geneva, where members were informed about this new direction.
In a clear statement DigiTAG's President Lieven Vermaele confirmed the organization's new mission is to protect broadcast spectrum, while continuing to focus on promoting and harmonizing digital terrestrial services and products and developing new DTT markets.
It was also announced that DigiTAG will now become technology neutral to represent the whole terrestrial broadcast industry. This will also help towards attracting members from the worldwide broadcast community.
More than 1 million digital radios have been sold in Australia since the technology launched in 2009....
The show will be honored at the 2013 NAB Show Television Luncheon, April 8 in Las Vegas....
