Towercom buys Thomson DTT transmitters

Towercom Bulgaria has selected Thomson Broadcast as a strategic supplier in the rollout of a DVB-T-based digital terrestrial television (DTTV) network across Bulgaria. Thomson will supply medium and higher power DVB-T transmitters with output powers in the 1-5 kW range. The order for 6 transmitters will increases the number of Thomson transmitters operating in the country to 24. Each transmitter site utilises an N+1 configuration such that one reserve transmitter can be automatically reconfigured to replace a failed transmitter.
Towercom Bulgaria was awarded a 15-year DVB-T licence and is building two multiplexes in SFN configured networks for nationwide operation.
