International: Asia's first digital TV network to launch in Taipei

Tandberg, the Norwegian entertainment technology group and Hong Kong-based Chinese Television System (CTS) are joining forces to build Asia's first digital terrestrial television network, using the DVB-T standard. CTS becomes the first to adopt this standard in Asia.

Advanced Communications Equipment International (ACE), a business partner and supplier of Tandberg digital solutions in Taiwan, will provide CTS with a complete digital terrestrial infrastructure solution composed of Tandberg Television encoders and multiplexers, controlled and monitored from a central location in Taipei.

The CTS network will digitally transmit video, audio and data, such as TV programs and advertising, to locations around Taiwan from a central hub in Taipei. Information such as news footage will be returned to Taipei through the same network.

Equipment installation will be rolled out from early 2002. The project is in the introductory phase, and CTS is the first of Taiwan's five networks to migrate to a digital platform. The completed structure will be Asia's most advanced terrestrial system.

DVB-T is one of the world's major digital broadcasting standards, and is the standard used by some of the world's leading TV markets, including ITV and the BBC in the U.K.; Digita in Finland; ABC, Network Nine, Network Ten, Prime Television, and SBS in Australia; and Telefonica in Spain.
