The Arab States Broadcasting Union has announced that it will host a joint workshop with WorldDAB at its headquarters in Tunis, Tunisia, that will focus on the opportunities DAB+ brings to radio, manufacturing, retail and automotive sectors. Specifically, topics will include how DAB+ is currently deployed in Tunisia and businesses can benefit from its growing market.
Members of the Tunisian Ministry of Communication, Ministry of Commerce, the National Broadcast Network Operator in Tunisia, Office National de Telediffusion, as well as representatives from the audio visual regulators, retailers, receivers, car manufacturers and ASBU directors.
This is the second workshop that has been hosted in Tunis this year on the DAB+ that followed the launch of regular DAB+ services in June—the first phase implemented the national multiplex that covers 51% of the country’s inhabitants, while the second phase will boost that number to 75% by the start of 2020. The multiplex hosts 18 DAB+ stations.
“WorldDAB is committed to assisting broadcasters and regulators in the MENA region, sharing best practices and key learnings from existing and established DAB+ markets, and helping manufacturers and retailers to realize the business opportunities and potential of DAB+ digital radio,” said Bernie O’Neill, WorldDAB project director.
The workshop, titled “Promoting DAB+ Services and Receivers,” will take place on Oct 10 at the ASBU headquarters. More information is available here.
