Elecard to start experimental digital TV broadcasting in Tomsk SEZ in October
Elecard, Tomsk, is going to start testing digital TV broadcasting in the Tomsk SEZ in mid-October.
«We are waiting to receive permit documents to start broadcasting with a very weak transmitter within the borders of the SEZ. It is possible, though, that nearby houses will also be able to receive the signal," says Elecard CEO Andrey Pozdnyakov.
«We are looking at it as pure experiment. And we hope that when RTRS (Russian Television and Radio Broadcasting Network) starts building a test system, we’ll be able to see interesting effects of joint broadcasting from different transmitters within the limits of our receivers.»
