A collaboration programme between
SKMM Academy, Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia and
Wireless Communication Centre (WCC), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia
Overview of the program
The Introduction to Broadcast Technology training is conducted over a period of 3 days and delivered by Academics. The programme will be held at the Wireless Communication Centre of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in Skudai Johor. The course is designed by academics and SKMM regulators with extensive knowledge in spectrum management. The programme looks at the development of the broadcasting systems and services (in Malaysia – options). It covers both analog to digital broadcasting standards. Specifically, it describes in detail, television, radio (sound), and satellite broadcasting. The programme begins with an overview of broadcasting services followed by the academic definition of broadcast channels. It covers topics such as the broadcasting transceiver structures, modulations and standards. The concept of satellite TV and radio broadcasting will also be presented. The information of digital dividend will be the draw attention to of the three days programme, where the values of digital dividend for the emerging technologies are discussed and explained. At the end of the programme, a dialogue is performed on the issues of digital dividend in Malaysia in order to exchange views between participants and facilitators.
To ensure at the end of the programme, all participants should be able to: * Comprehend the concept of analog and digital broadcasting services. * Make different between broadcasting standards, i.e. Radio, TV, and Satellite. * Express knowledge of broadcast channels from the perspective of information theory. * Give details the concept of the digital dividend.
The course caters to the needs of those working within the broadcast sectors with a concern in the future improvement in terrestrial broadcasting.
At the end of the programme, all participants will be tested on their understanding of broadcast technology and concept of the digital dividend. Thereby, a certificate will be awarded to those participants that successfully pass the examination.
