DTT Field Tests begin in Peru

Field tests for the implementation of digital terrestrial television in Peru began on the 3rd of December, according to an announcement from the Ministry of Transport and Communication (MTC).
Companies representing the three main international standards, DVB-T, ISDB-T and ATSC have been setting up transmission equipments so that the analysis can take place, using a protocol devised by the Multisectoral Commision, which will also recommend the standard to be adopted by Peru.
Field tests will be used to evaluate TV reception in houses and TV reception when mobile.
The Multisectoral Commission was established on February 21st, 2007, with the aim of suggesting the best standard for digital television broadcasting in Peru. It is presided over by representatives of Peru’s MTC.
