The International Journal of Digital Television Launch Event

‘The question for us now…is not so much a matter of whether we are seeing the end of television as a form of content, but rather a way of mapping the varying formations and configurations of the presentation and distribution of television – and asking of each…“how is this still television?”’ – Jinna Tay & Graeme Turner, International Journal of Digital Television


Intellect is delighted to announce the launch of the International Journal of Digital Television at the Oxford Internet Institute, Oxford University on Thursday 26th November. The event will involve a number of special guest speakers including the editor of the International Journal of Digital Television Michael Starks. There will also be a seminar on the theme of ‘After digital switchover...?’ where copies of the first issue will be given away for free.

The International Journal of Digital Television will describe and explain the transition to digital TV and wider trends in television. As switchover happens across the globe and television’s operations and audiences are transformed, the Journal will be at the forefront of efforts to understand the changes and developments.


The Journal will bring together, and share, the work of academics, policy-makers and practitioners, offering lessons from one another’s experience. Content will be broad and varied, evolving as the focus shifts from switching off analogue TV to the challenge of exploiting digital television’s convergence with the Internet and telecommunications.


The first issue is truly international in scope and voice, containing a diverse range of articles that include Jeffrey A. Hart’s ‘The Transition to Digital Television in the United States’ and Norio Kumabe’s commentary on the ‘Preparations for Digital Switchover in Japan’ as well as a discussion focussing on digital television in developing countries.
