Broadcasting Service

Study period : 2019-2023

NSG 6 Radiocommunication broadcasting, inclusion vision, sound, multimedia and data services principally intended for delivery to the general public.


The work of the Study Group includes the production and distribution of programmes (vision, sound, multimedia, data, etc.) as well as contribution circuits among studios, information gathering circuits (ENG, requirements for SNG, etc.), primary distribution to delivery nodes, and secondary distribution to consumers.
