Indonesia’s broadcast goes digital

According to Communications Minister Sofyan Djalil, Indonesia will definitely migrate to digital. He was speaking at the International Broadcast & Multimedia Expo (IBEX) 2006 held in Bali and went on to say that trials of digital radio and TV broadcasting are already taking place.
Speaking later in the conference Lily Rustandi, a member of the national digital team revealed more details of digital operation in Indonesia and said that “All TV broadcasting stations send their signals to respective relay stations in the region via satellite using DVB-S and in addition some cable and satellite stations have already adopted DVB-S and DVB-C”.
She went on to say that the team is already conducting digital TV trials using the Chinese DMB-T system as well as DVB-T and DVB-based IP services in Jakarta.
The DVB-T trial, being held jointly by TVRI and RCTI, has been in progress since July and is set to end in December 2006. A DVB-H trial is also underway in the country.
