Saudi ministry selects Harris for transmission modernization
February 5, 2009
Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Culture and Information (MOCI) has selected Harris to provide a range of radio and TV broadcast transmitters as part of an ongoing modernization of Saudi TV and Radio's transmitter infrastructure.
To support the upgrade, the Saudi MOCI chose 36 Harris TV transmitters (including Atlas digital solid-state air-cooled transmitters), 21 Harris AM radio transmitters (including 3DX digital solid-state transmitters) and 40 FM radio transmitters (including the ZX range of low-power transmitters).
These transmitters have been deployed across multiple Saudi TV and Radio facilities to allow for the broadcast of audio and TV programs terrestrially throughout the kingdom. The new TV transmitters are an especially critical element of Saudi TV and Radio's program to upgrade its television infrastructure to digital. For more information, visit
