TV Azteca relies on Harris for HDTV future

Harris’ DiamondCD DHD8P1 transmitters will be used to bring HDTV to TV Azteca viewers.
TV Azteca has signed a purchase agreement with the Harris Broadcast Communications Division for digital television transmitters and high-definition encoding equipment.

The equipment will bring HDTV to nine cities in Mexico and will be launched in two phases through mid-2006.

The new equipment places TV Azteca at the forefront of digital transmission capabilities in Latin America and will allow for HDTV transmission in Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey by the third quarter of this year. Phase Two of the national rollout will bring HDTV services to six additional cities (Matamoros, Reynosa, Nuevo Laredo, Ciudad Juarez, Mexicali and Tijuana) through the first half of 2006.

The initial TV Azteca order includes six Harris DiamondCD DHD8P1 transmitters operating at 1.8kW.

TV Azteca can readily expand the DHD8P1 for additional power output by adding power amplifiers and power supplies. The DiamondCD DHD8P1 transmitter includes the Apex digital TV exciter.
