As media becomes more complex, broadcasters need to understand that individuals and communities are increasingly using various media simultaneously and interacting, and such multitasking has had an impact on how they engage with individual task or activity.
The future of broadcasting lies not only in producing creative content that is relevant, innovative, and engaging, but also in adopting formats that keep pace with the demands of various platforms and shifting audience preferences.
Dato’ Jailani Johari, Honourable Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia, has urged broadcasters to be open and present non traditional approaches based on best experiences of their home regions in providing training to meet the demand for creative content.
More than sixty trainers, practitioners and managers of broadcast organisations from Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa are expected to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Broadcast Training in Kuala Lumpur from 5 - 6 February 2015.
YB Datuk Jailani Johari, Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia, Malaysia, has called on broadcasters in Asia-Pacific to offer new channels generated by the advent of digital terrestrial TV broadcasting with programmes that cater to the different needs of their audience who want variety.
The Dart Centre for Journalism & Trauma offers journalists, photographers, camera operators, editors and producers in the Asia-Pacific region a unique opportunity to improve coverage of tragic events.
