Azerbaijan to manufacture 15 DVB-T transmitters

Azerbaijan’s state-owned radio and television broadcasting network, Teleradio, is planning to manufacture 15 Digital Video Broadcasting – Terrestrial (DVB-T) transmitters by the end of 2014, to be deployed in rural areas with limited or no DVB-T coverage.

At present, over 90 DVB-T transmitters are operational across the country. About 12 television channels are available under this open package using the MPEG-4 format, reports.

DVB-T is an European-based consortium standard for the broadcast transmission of digital terrestrial television. DVB-T transmits compressed digital audio, digital video and other data in an MPEG transport stream, using coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (COFDM or OFDM) modulation.
