NBTC of Thailand to roll out DVB-T2
The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) of Thailand has partnered with Rohde & Schwarz and StreamSpark to provide integrated DVB-T2 receiver compliance solution.
The new technological switch not only empowers NBTC to roll out DVB-T2 ahead of its counterparts in ASEAN region, but also enables smooth transmission of HD contents over T2 networks in major cities such as Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
According to NBTC, receiver testing is paramount to a successful digital TV switchover. As such, the Thai government provides coupon of THB690 (or 18 EUR) for receivers with NBTC logo and NBTC shall guarantee the quality and performance of each receiver model, ensuring smooth DVB-T2 roll out at consumers’ end. Upon implementation, all receiver products such as STB, iDTV, USB dongle, tablet and mobile phone with built-in T2 demodulator shall be tested against NBTC standard and granted with NBTC logo before sale. In addition, all Digital TV receiver imported to Thailand shall be certified by NBTC and entitled with NBTC receiver logo.
