Challenges of switching off the analog signal is the theme of the special panel at the 28th SET Expo Conference
Seja Digital (EAD), the entity charged with managing the TV signal migration process in Brazil, will be at the 28th SET Expo Conference, on August 29, at 4:30 pm, to present what goes on behind the scenes of the process for switching off analog TV signals in Brazil, considered the largest of its kind in the world, which began in the city of Rio Verde, in Goiás State, last April, with the Federal District next in line in October.
“It will be a unique opportunity”, says Antônio Carlos Martelletto, president of Seja Digital, which will also have a stand at the SET Expo trade Show running parallel with the conference. Participants will have access to technical information about what is going on behind the scenes of a process that is raising Brazil to the same level of countries like The United States and the United Kingdom”, he adds.
Besides Martelleto, two other Seja Digital representatives will be present on the panel, Gunnar Bedicks, technical director; and Patricia Abreu, communication director; as well as Paulo Ricardo Balduino, director of the Abert (Brazilian Association of Radio and TV Broadcasters). The moderator will be André Felipe Trindade, a full member of the Gired (the Group for the Implementation of the TV and RTV Channel Redistribution and Digitalization Process).
