The U.S. Federal Communications Commission is requiring broadcasters in the United States to end analog transmissions Feb. 17 and move entirely to digital operations. The transition will directly affect about 1,500 local television stations and an estimated 11,000 cable headends across the United States. Every facet of broadcasting will be affected, and while the industry has been preparing for this switch for several years, some broadcasters are scrambling to ensure their new digital networks will be ready in time.
Our leading panel of experts will address:
- Is the United States ready for this move?
- Are there lessons that can be learned from other countries which already have made the transition?
- How will satellite service providers, satellite operators and hardware manufacturers be affected by this government-mandated move?
- What are the opportunities that will be created post-switch?
- And More!
Don't miss this opportunity to get your questions answered and learn about the impact of this transition on the marketplace.

The live audio is delivered to your location over the telephone or your computer speakers. The Power-Point presentations are presented over the Internet and are available to print out before the program. This is like a talk-radio program with visuals on the Web. You and your team will be able to have a live Q&A with all the speakers.
You need Real Player or Windows Media Player installed on your computer. If you do not have either, please follow the instructions below to download and install them. Or if you prefer, a phone for the audio and an Internet connection to let you watch the slides and other information on the Web will suffice. No other downloads or special hardware needed - a dial-up connection will work fine.
