At the same time, Michael Eberhard from Germany’s ARD/SWR and Brian Wynne from Irish public broadcaster RTÉ were elected as vice chairs.
According to the EBU, the Technical Assembly (TA) gathers high-level representatives from all EBU Members for an exchange on technical topics of great strategic importance to public service media. It elects a new TC in even years (such as 2022) and reviews the TC’s new workplan in odd years. The annual meeting is normally held in June.
It adds that the 13 elected member representatives of the TC shape the direction of the work carried out by the EBU’s technology & innovation department on behalf of the EBU membership and through the collaborative strategic programmes and working groups coordinated by the department.
