ABU Digital Broadcasting Symposium: March 2009, Kuala Lumpur

The ABU Digital Broadcasting Symposium for 2009 will be held from 9 to 12 March 2009 in Kuala Lumpur. The underlying theme for this four-day event is “Towards Higher Definition in Radio & Television.”

In the recent years there has been an enhanced interest in HDTV broadcasting in this region. Similarly, radio broadcasters have shown keen interest in upgrading the broadcasting services, with some of them embracing the latest delivery technologies such as DAB+. Organisers say the ABU Symposium is “opportune” and will offer “a much needed update related to technologies and services.”

The symposium comprises a three-day conference and around twenty workshops, open to members and industry partners. There will be about thirty standard booths for an industry exhibition and special arrangements for launch of new products by industry partners.
