This Technical Report was originally published as BPN100, to EBU Members only. The future role of terrestrial broadcasting is examined in light of the rapidly changing needs of broadcasting and 18 recommendations are made to broadcasters concerning this vital resource.
The EBU Technical Committee decided in October 2011 that BPN 100 should be made available to the public. This was done by publishing the report as EBU Technical Report 013. In November 2011 the report needed revision (explained in TR013) and it was decided to withdraw BPN 100 to simplify the editorial process. See EBU TR013. The link to BPN 100 is a placeholder.
