DVB-T2 Indonesia TV adopted
The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology of Indonesia proposed the adoption of the next generation DVB-T2 standard for free-to-air broadcasts when Jakarta switches to digital broadcasts, BroadbandTvNews reports.
The original plan was for introducing a DVB-T network but after consultation with industry players the Ministry decided to switch to the more advanced version.
In a statement the Ministry explains that the use of DVB-T2 would open up the market to additional broadcasters.
Following a public consultation in December 2011, the Indonesian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology is expected to publish a request for tender for new digital television broadcasting equipment in the first quarter of 2012. Indonesia originally decided to roll out a DVB-T network, but is now expected to select the second generation standard, DVB-T2. More information can be found on the Ministry’s website.
