By BBN Staff: In lieu of celebrating World Standards Day on October 14, the Belize Bureau of Standards (BBS) held a seminar today at the Radisson Fort George Hotel and Marina.
The seminar was held under the global theme “Video standards create a global stage” and featured presentations from the major media houses in Belize, Channel 5, Channel 7, and Love FM. The presentations were structured around the industry standards for technology as well as the historical aspect and evolution of technologies within the sector.
Rudolpho Gutierrez, consumer Protection Liason Officer at the BBS, explained that the observation of the day is to remind the public of the importance of standards, noting that everything from cell phones to ATM cards, all have standards driving that technology.
“Implementing standards is a matter of choice but it is already gaining momentum in our country. People realize that if they want to export their product and be competitive that you must be compliant with some kind of standard, because at the end of the day if you want to penetrate international markets they have standards that you need to meet,” Gutierrez said.
Gutierrez noted that, given the content of the presentations, there is still room for improvement in Belize with respect to the technologies being utilized within the TV media sector.
“We are still doing analog when there are opportunities for digital options to be introduced. The testimonials show that a lot can be done in the sector to improve on the standards, but I believe it woudl be for some regulatory body to request the standards,” Gutierrez said.
