Philippines moves closer to DVB-H

The Philippines will be adopting Europes digital transmission DVB standard for its future broadcasting needs. The decision, anticipated for some time, was confirmed by the nations second Technical Working Group (TWG), which further investigated the options available, and ratified the initial study which favoured DVB.

This latest investigation examined Japans ISDB standard as well as the USAs Advanced Television Standard, but came down in favour of the DVB system with the primary reason being the low-cost availability of set-top converter boxes.

NTC Deputy Commissioner Jorge Sarmiento said the TWG also conducted a comparative analysis study on the adoption of either a single standard or an open standard policy, including the socio-economic aspects of such migration, comments from the broadcasting operators and the cost of the digital boxes.

But the recommendation has yet to be approved by the countrys NTC. The commission is in the process of studying and deliberating on the different DTT standards that would be chosen for adoption in the country. When approved, the target date of the full implementation would be at the end of 2015, said Sarmiento.

He added the NTC may move further the December 31, 2015, target date for the mandatory shifting of all analog broadcast to DTT technology. The technical working group, which includes the NTC, is still not yet sure whether or not to implement on the scheduled date or postpone the 2015 deadline given the socio-economic impact of the implementation, he said.
