Digital Broadcasters | Vietnam Television | New Transmitters Installed

Rohde & Schwarz, the German television broadcast transmitter specialist is rapidly installing 19 high-power UHF (ultra high frequency)analog transmitters of the R&S NH7000C antenna series to Vietnam Television, Digital Broadcasters Vendor News can report.

Rohde & Schwarz was commissioned to provide analog terrestrial TV coverage for state broadcaster, Vietnam Television to improve patchy transmission coverage particularly for VTV2 and VTV3. The flagship channel is VTV1.

R&S says that the liquid-cooled transmitters have an effective radiated power (ERP) of between 5 kW and 10 kW. They operate in a combined amplifier mode, and are designed to be easily converted to a digital standard at a later date.

The transmitters are being installed at eleven locations throughout Vietnam.

Digital Broadcasters Vendor News has learnt that Rohde & Schwarz will also support Vietnam Television with respect to project management and maintenance of the transmitters. The German manufacturer maintains sales office in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
