Harris strikes multimillion dollar deal with Indonesia's ANTV
Harris Corporation's Broadcast Communications Division announced that PT Marlin Trisiana has purchased a Harris TV transmission system that will provide over-the-air service to all of Indonesia on behalf of its customer, ANTV, a terrestrial TV network there.
Delivery of the $6.9 million system begins this month, with a planned launch in late October. Harris will provide analog transmitters and spare parts, along with turnkey services for commissioning the transmission sites. PT Marlin Trisiana, a broadcast systems integrator based in Jakarta, will deliver the Harris transmission equipment, supply tower and antenna systems, and provide civil works.
Harris will deliver two 120 kW Sigma analog transmitters, one each to sites in Jakarta and Surabuya, where the bulk of the station's broadcast signals will originate. Eight sets of 20kW and nine sets of 5kW Atlas analog transmitters will be delivered to other sites in the country.
