Fiji TV recently commenced providing a new satellite-based regional television service to the South Pacific region with the help of AZCAR.
In 2004, the company was awarded a contract for the design, equipment procurement, and systems integration of the new satellite with technical facilities in Suva, Fiji.
The project included the design and implementation of studio facility upgrades, new satellite uplinks, digital signal processing, conditional access systems and set-top boxes and related hardware.
AZCAR used its U.K. subsidiary, Megahertz Broadcast Systems, to install pre-built modules and integrate them into the existing Fiji TV systems. The operation brings a new level of television services to the Pacific Region, including the Fiji islands some of which now have access for the first time to live local programming, news and sporting events.
