Decision on DTT Standard Extended by two months
Following further lobbying by ATSC and a recent a trip to Japan, Pablo Belo, the Undersecretary of Telecommunications, has put off the decision on a DTT standard choice for Chile, for another two months.
During September and October further trials will be taking place in 160 homes in Santiago. Measurements will be taken every 30 minutes to test the quality of transmissions using ISDB-T, ATSC and DVB-T. Subtel will analyse the behaviour of the three systems in equal conditions following an international protocol, which has already been put up for public consultation.
