Iran Successfully Completed Digital Broadcast Project

Iran has completed the project for the changeover from analog to digital radio and television broadcast for all of its 31 provincial capitals.

The five provinces of Mazandaran, Golestan, and North Khorasan, as well as the two exclusive centers of Abadan and the Kish Island, were the last centres to join the project.

On hand for the launching ceremony was President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, Ezzatollah Zarghami, who told reporters that the project is yet to be finalized and IRIB has a lot to do until  all the cities and villages across the country gradually go digital.

Zarghami said that considering the vast geographical expansion of the  country, it is a huge achievement and still the primary appeal of IRIB will be to widen the digital service to broader spreads.

According to the IRIB chief, currently 60 percent of Iran’s radio and TV transmissions have been converted into digital signals.
