The ABA is responsible for managing the conversion
of television transmissions from analog to digital mode.
Legislative schemes have been developed for the conversion
of commercial and national television broadcasting services
from analog to digital mode over a period of time. The
ABA is empowered under the conversion schemes to develop
Digital channel plans (DCP's) which will determine the
channels to be allotted in each area and assigned to
each broadcaster as well as the technical limitations
and characteristics of those channels.
