Exploitable results

The project concerns the provision of a comprehensive analysis of the future of broadband digital television (TV) and interactive multimedia services across Europe. The study explores: the evolution and dynamics of demand, costs and revenues, investments and returns; the impact of technological and regulatory factors on infrastructure, competition, service content and distribution; how regulatory structures should be changed to suit the requirements of a changing, converging market. The results so far involve gathering and organizing data to provide on-demand information and this will be used to analyse the competitive situation of infrastructures, reviewing audiovisual and telecommunications regulations, identifying main markets and major players, describing the economics of the digital TV industries, in order to help the enforcement of migration strategies of services towards digital delivery.
