How to measure communication and media in the digital converging era?

Workshop organised by the OECD, EBU and the European Audiovisual Observatory
in the framework of the Internet Governance Forum (Vilnius, 15 September 2010).
The workshop will take place in room 5 of the Lithuanian Exhibition Centre LITEXPO in Vilnius between 4.30 and 6.30 PM and will be webcast live on the website of the IGF:

The objective of the workshop is to raise the awareness of the problems in measuring the impact of the Internet on the audiovisual industry. The development of broadband has made possible the rapid development of web TV, VoD, catch-up TV, video sharing and non authorized file sharing, but it is still difficult to provide coherent statistics on the level of equipment, new consumer practices, the importance of new services in media companies’ investments and revenues. The workshop will focus on two introductory reports (by experts from the OECD and the European Audiovisual Observatory) as well as a survey from the EBU. A discussion panel involving experts and representatives from of the civil society will also take place.

Chairman : Ismo Silvo, Director, YLE (Finland)

Frédéric Bourassa, OECD Statistician on Communications indicators, telecommunications, Internet, ICT and trade in ICT goods and services statistics: Defining an international framework for measuring the development of networks and consumers’ audiovisual equipment and practices.
