ANTV turns to Harris transmitters

Indonesian broadcaster ANTV will begin delivering over-the-air television service to all of Indonesia in the fall with a new analog transmission system from the Harris Broadcast Division.

Delivery of the system began in June. It is scheduled to be operational in late October. Harris will provide analog transmitters and spare parts, along with turnkey services for commissioning the transmission sites. PT Marlin Trisiana, a broadcast systems integrator based in Jakarta, will deliver the Harris transmission equipment, supply tower and antenna systems, and provide civil works.

The installation will enable ANTV to deliver high-quality, over-to-the-air signals across Indonesia.

Harris will deliver two 120kW Sigma analog transmitters, one each to sites in Jakarta and Surabuya where the bulk of the station’s broadcast signals will originate. Eight sets of 20kW and nine sets of 5kW Atlas analog transmitters will be delivered to other sites in the country.
