FCC Revises Agenda for DTV Consumer Education Workshop
The FCC issued an updated agenda for its Digital Television Consumer Education Workshop being held Sept. 26 at FCC Headquarters in Washington.

The workshop starts with a demonstration of converter boxes, digital TVs and comparisons to analog TV at 8 a.m.

After the welcome by FCC Chairman Martin and some of the Commissioners, the program moves to “Government Update on DTV Transition,” presented by speakers from several government agencies.

It is followed by a session titled, “What is the Industry’s Role in Facilitating the DTV Transition?” This session includes speakers from the Consumer Electronics Association, the National Cable TV Association, the Consumer Electronics Retailers Coalition, and NAB.

Various consumer groups will speak at the “Consumer Interest and Advocacy Group Roundtable.”

After brief greetings, there is a break for lunch during which attendees are encouraged to visit the technical demonstrations and have informal discussions with other participants. The “Consumer Interest and Advocacy Group Roundtable” continues after lunch with speakers from several ethnic groups and the AARP. After the Roundtable, 15 minutes has been set aside for a wrap-up, with technical demonstrations open until 4:15 p.m.
