ATSC Seen as Good DTV Fit for Chile
BNAmericas.com has reported that Anatel, Chile's national television association, says that ATSC is the best terrestrial DTV standard for Chile. Chile currently uses NTSC for analog broadcasting; adopting the U.S. DTV standard, the article said, would make it 40 percent less expensive for broadcasters in Chile to switch to ATSC rather than the European DVB-T standard or Japan's ISDB-T standard. Anatel's president of technical matters, Roberto Plass told BNAmericas that ATSC also has better transmission coverage and uses less electricity.
