Switch-Off Working Group

The purpose of the Switch-off Working Group is to submit and assist in the feasibility of actions for sharing knowledge about the analog TV switch-off process to SET-associated television engineering professionals throughout Brazil, so that they can support the process of transition to digital TV.

Work schedule

The group’s agenda of activities will mirror the switch-off schedule defined by the Brazilian government. Initially, the group will work on action planning and on defining the priorities for 2017 and 2018.


  • Consolidating the information about the subject, making it available on the SET portal, as well as via links that point to other useful sites and portals, to television engineering professionals nationwide;
  • Proposing structured models for reports about the decisions of the GIRED and the Technical Groups;
  • Fostering partnerships between SET and regional and local associations, while proposing joint actions for sharing information about the disconnection of analog TV.
