Peru postpones decision on DTT system
The Ministry of Transportation and Communications has postponed a decision on the choice of a DTT system for Peru, for 90 days from October 2008. This means that a decision will not be made until 2009.
The delay was requested by the Chinese and Brazilian embassies so as to allow the testing of the Chinese system DMB-T and the Japanese ISDB-T system complete with the enhancements requested by Brazil.
Peru has recently been conducting DTT tests using ATSC, DVB-T and ISDB-T in the Arequipa and Cusco provinces and the same test conditions will be used for DMB-T and enhanced ISDB-T.
DTT is planned to start in 2009 with a complete analogue service switch off during the next 15 years.
