Ecuador Prefers Brazilian DTV Standard

May 29, 2009
According to the Web site, Ecuador has not “absolutely decided” on the Japanese/Brazilian ISBD-T standard that’s termed “SBTVD,” but prefers ISBD.

Ecuador's president Rafael Correa is quoted in the article as favoring SBTVD.

“At the beginning, we would like to support a Latin American brother like Brazil, which is the one that produces the technology for such digital TV system,” said Correa. “Obviously, I am not an expert in technical affairs, I need to receive the final technical report, but we are also working on this project so as to start a new television era in Ecuador.”

The article states that Argentina and Paraguay are close to adopting SBTVD.
