 Repurposing of analog television broadcast transmitters
 Digital radio and television systems: terrestrial, cable, satellite, Internet, wireless
 Streaming, IPTV, VoIP, VoD, Mobile TV, Wireless Multimedia
 Wireless Broadband Networks; e.g., IEEE 802.22 Wireless Regional Area Networks (“WRANs”)
 Transmission, propagation, reception, re-distribution of broadcast signals
o AM, FM, and TV transmitter and antenna systems
o Tests and measurements
o Cable and satellite technologies:
• Interconnections with over-the-air broadcasters •Transport stream issues
• Re-purposing of navigational information
o Advanced technologies and systems for emerging broadcasting applications
o Reception:
• Software-based receivers • DTV and IBOC reception issues • Smart antennas for indoor use • Noisefigure
management in a home environment • Compression and modulation for mobile and hand-held
sets • Diversity reception under dynamic multipath • Frequency- and time-domain equalization •
Wireless home distribution
o Transmission:
• Dynamic sharing of bandwidth • Spectrum re-packing optimization • New extensions for the ATSC VSB standard

Call for Tutorials: Proposals for half-day tutorials are also solicited based on the topics listed above.

Call for Panels: Proposals are solicited for panels on technology, application, business, and policy-related issues and opportunities for the broadcasting industry.
