THE IMC BEGINS TO WORK IN DEVELOPMENT OF A STRATEGY FOR SWITCHOVER TO DIGITAL BROADCASTING

31.08.2010 -

The Independent Media Commission has set its priority objectives for 2010, and they include policy-drafting for switchover to digital broadcasting for all broadcast media in Kosovo. With a view of drafting a sustained strategy for the Digitalization Process, the Independent Media Commission Council has established 5 working groups, which will draft parts of the strategy, including program content, technical matters, legal matters, social-economic matters, and outreach/awareness matters.

These groups shall represent by all relevant institutions, media and civil society. Today, the first meeting of the Program Content Working Group took place, thereby presenting the first strategy draft for the program content part, by a narrow working group within the IMC.

This draft was positively assessed, due to the fact that it shall serve as a reference point for activities in further development of the strategy. Also, a presentation of strategies, namely program content parts thereof, from European Union States and regional countries was made. This group is led by the member of the IMC Council, Mr. Agim Sopi and consists also of representatives of the Independent Media Commission, public broadcaster (RTK), private electronic media, AMPEK, University of Prishtina, Academy of Sciences and Arts of Kosovo, KAPJ and PSO Klan Kosova. The group shall also expand to include other experts as deemed necessary by group members.

The first program content draft, together with Terms of Reference of the Working Group, will be posted at the IMC Website (www.kpm-ks.org), with a view of informing the public and ensuring inclusiveness of this important process.

The Independent Media Commission shall consistently ensure transparency of all other working groups of the Digitalization Strategy.
