DocuWatch Digital Television

DocuWatch Digital Television

Considering the rapidly changing media landscape, "DocuWatch Digitales Fernsehen" was a successful attempt to develop new work methods that meet the needs of public and private institutions for current and at the same time scientifically sound information and assessments. The results were published in form of the quarterly journal "Docu-Watch". The issues were and are still available free of charge on the website of the institute.

Project Description

For „DocuWatch Digitales Fernsehen”, the Hans-Bredow-Institut was commissioned by the ALM (Association of States Media Authorities in the Federal Republic of Germany) to survey documents from regulating authorities, from within and outside of Germany, as well as supranational organisations and the research area in order to produce summaries, which were focussed on digital television, thus following the digitalisation proccess in the field of television. The combination of perspectives of social science, communication science, economics and law is reflected in the editorial department. The connection of these components added the special value to this project.

Gratitude is owed to the State Media Authorities for its financial support, which enabled us to conduct and analyse information on the development of digital television. The funding ceased with the issue 4/2006.
