In order to provide viewers with even higher-quality video and make the most effective use of radio waves, Colombia is promoting the transition from analog broadcasting to digital terrestrial broadcasting by the end of 2019.
NEC’s project is slated to be fully operational by August 2017, featuring 37 units of DVB-T2 equipment under the European digital broadcasting standard, deployed in 16 locations throughout the country. In combination with existing equipment, approximately 88% of Colombia will have access to the superior quality of terrestrial digital broadcasting when this project is complete.
RTVC is utilizing NEC’s cutting edge DTU-H10/M10/L-10 digital TV broadcasting transmitters, featuring some of the world’s highest levels of power efficiency, and highly evaluated for exceptional performance in the broadcasting field.
“This project is very important for NEC and we are proud to see the Colombian government providing our state of the art DVB-T2 Digital Terrestrial Television System (DTT), resulting in the expansion of broadcast network coverage countrywide and promoting the social inclusion of all Colombian residents,” said Javier Ortiz Ardila, President of NEC de Colombia S.A.
