ASEAN targets 2015 for DVB-T adoption The DVB-T common standard was adopted at the 9th Conference of ASEAN Ministers Responsible for Information (AMRI), which concluded 24 May 2007 in Jakarta, Indonesia. But time-frames will differ according to market maturity. As the most commonly adopted international DTV standard AMRI noted that the DVB-T standard would offer the most advantages in terms of economies of scale, ease of adoption and versatility for multiple platforms. Hence DVB-T was adopted as the ASEAN common digital terrestrial television broadcasting standard. The Philippines is still conducting, testing and consulting on the digital standards. While some member countries have proposed working towards 2015 as a common switchoff date, this is subject to the ability of individual ASEAN Member Countries given their geographical and human resource challenges. Detailed policy considerations will be further discussed in planning for Analogue Switch-Off It was also reiterated that further developments in this field must take into account the technical infrastructure of each ASEAN Member Country and the need for ASEAN Member Countries to support each other.
