Advice on TV broadcast standards in Singapore

Plum and Aegis advised the Media Development Authority of Singapore on the development of a Code of Practice for TV broadcast standards. The study included a review of international standards and regulations for broadcast TV services across different distribution mechanisms including terrestrial broadcasting, cable, IPTV and over-the-top (OTT). A consultation with stakeholders was also conducted.

Recommendations were provided on the most appropriate standards taking account of the relevance and applicability to the Singapore market and developments in the sector. These included performance standards for coverage, reliability, picture and sound quality. Compliance and enforcement issues were also considered in developing the recommendations.

Plum then supported the MDA in developing the Code of Practice which has been adopted by the MDA following a public consultation process.
