Modern media connect the world by the global network. Technological innovation is strongly driving the transformation of television into an integrated digital media. In the vast ocean of highspeed Internet, any single media technology system will no longer exist, and the digital television industry will face the great transformation of technical standards, organizational structure and operation mechanism. In the international digital standard development, China was once been lagging behind, however the current 5G network layout is advancing orderly. Although the international organization for standardization has formulated more than 70 standards for 4K Ultra High Definition Television, neither China nor Korea could directly follow them. We need to comprehensively consider the issues of supporting national industry and independent intellectual property rights. As an Asian country, as a “TV pioneer “, Korea has a genetic advantage with China in the standard framework, and has always been an ideal partner for China’s digital television experiments. The cooperative relationship in the development of digital television between China and Korea has brought innovative ideas for this topic. Two research questions guide this study: 1. What are the difference between the two nations’ DTV policy framework? 2. How do the two countries achieve technological cooperation under different standard systems? At present, there are over 70 units from more than 20 countries have participated in the research plan of global future radio and television cooperation, and are actively exploring the international cooperation of laboratories in this field. At this moment, carrying out the case between China and Korea and further collaborative innovation research, with focus on technical policy for standard making, searching for “common needs” and “public architecture” have a positive and broad significance.
