Cuba evaluates DTMB, ISDB-T to launch DTT in 2020

Monday 29 November 2010 | 12:13 CET | News
Cuba is evaluating China's DTMB and the Brazilian/Japanese ISDB-T digital terrestrial TV standards to launch services in 2020, reports Prensa Latina, citing Manuel Barreras, director of Cuba's department of radio and TV digitisation. The country ran tests of both technologies in 2009 and could launch DTT within ten years if it chooses a system by the middle of 2011. Barreras said that the choice of one standard over the other would primarily be political and that the switch from analogue would require an investment of around USD 100 million.
