Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB) and Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) are now in commercial service, tearing down the traditional boundaries between the telecommunications and broadcasting sectors. These latest developments also hold important implications for research projects in related areas. Both telecommunications and broadcasting being fields with a strong service orientation, market demand should be the primary consideration when selecting research and development (R&D) projects in these areas. This study presents a process for selecting converged telecommunications-broadcasting technology development projects from a demand-oriented perspective, using criteria that are based on projected future demand characteristics. Aimed at increasing the efficiency of the R&D project selection process in telecommunications and broadcasting convergence, this study can point out new directions in R&D management in this field.
