TPEG Workshops

In cooperation with TISA, Bayerische Medien Technik (bmt) offers one-day TPEG Seminar “Getting in touch with TPEG” several times a year in English and German.

TPEG is a protocol developed by EBU in cooperation with the European Union which was designed to broadcast digital traffic and travel information. The seminar is addressed to all engineering staff from the automobile industry, manufacturers of end-user devices, broadcast network providers, multiplexer manufacturers, service and programme providers and representatives from the broadcast industry. No previous experience with TPEG is required for the seminar.

The speakers will present the following topics:

  • Introduction to TPEG Technology
  • TPEG Specifications
  • TPEG Reception in Theory and Hands-on Session
  • TPEG Service Design in Theory and Hands-on Session (including real transmission and receiving)

The speakers have been actively working on TPEG standardization for more than 10 years and are members of several TISA and Standards working groups.

Traveller Information Services Association (TISA) is a market-driven membership association with worldwide scope, established as a not-for-profit company focussed on proactive implementation of traffic and travel information services and products based on existing standards, including primarily RDS-TMC and TPEG technologies. TISA was founded on synergy among previously separate member organisations and it now ensures an international framework for the co-ordinated development of future standards and services.
