The broadcast industry worldwide is currently experiencing exciting times as it introduces digital technologies and gradually phases out analogue services - digital migration.
Once Australia has completely moved all its TV transmission onto the digital platform, the digital signals (spectrum) will be restacked and a large area of vacated spectrum will be filled with the introduction of new and innovative services. The move to digital broadcasting opens up a vast array of advantages that are simply not available through an analogue platform.
In addition to the transmission of TV at both standard and high definition, digital TV broadcasting can present a great deal more. It permits the broadcasting of data, tailored content to portable and mobile devices, infocasting, and hybrid TV—which combines Internet/IP connectivity with digital TV reception.
Broadcast Australia provides a range of services particularly applied to digital television and new technologies, including: planning and designing of networks, installation, system integration, operations and maintenance.
