VTV inks deal with RFS for digital TV transmission gear
Vietnam Television (VTV) has selected Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) to supply broadcast equipment that will let the broadcaster launch its first digital television service throughout the country.
The RFS broadcast equipment includes horizontally polarized PHP UHF panels for the antenna systems and UHF balanced combiners for the combiner systems. The deal, valued at more than $1 million, will supply VTV with equipment that will let it extend its network and broaden its television offerings. VTV plans to launch its first digital terrestrial television service by the end of 2010.
In 2007, RFS provided the complete RF systems for a 12-site expansion of the Vietnam's analog television network, extending two channels to a nationwide audience.
