January 2012 ASO

Belarus has announced that it expects to complete the transition to DTT broadcasting on the 1st January 2012, three years ahead of the original schedule.
The news was announced at the 13th meeting of the country’s Coordination Group for Digital Broadcasting (KGTSV), held at the headquarters of the company General Satellite and reported by CNews and AKTR.
The ASO has been brought forward because there are already 51 DTT transmitters covering 82% of the country and 93% of the population.
Belarus with the help of Rhode & Schwarz equipment recently (May/June) conducted a DVB-T2 trial and its neighbour Russia has just announced agreement for full scale DVB-T2 test zones to help with its complete transition to DTT by 2015.
