Togo chooses Harris Corporation for migration of digital switchover

Louise Duffy | 06-09-2012

Communications and information technology company Harris Corporation has been selected as the technology vendor of choice for a country-wide digital TV transition project in Togo.

Harris will renew the countrys broadcast TV infrastructure by designing, installing and commissioning a digital video chain to transmit throughout the country, using a national network of DVB-T2 transmitters and satellite services.

Harris helped to define the requirements for the digital transition with the projects prime contractor, Togo-based construction company General dAfrique, and the Togo Governments Ministry of Communications. A key driver in the decision to select Harris was its market-leading experience and technology base in the emerging DVB-T2 transmission standard.

Togo will become one of the first West African states to adopt and implement DVB-T2. The migration will introduce a better than threefold increase in standard and high-definition TV channel capacity, as well as significantly increase the transmission networks resiliency and robustness.

We at General dAfrique, as the prime contractor for the digital television switchover in Togo, selected Harris because of its ability to meet all of our digital TV needs with a sophisticated integrated TV production system, said Helios Rodriguez, general director at General dAfrique.

We are pleased with the solution that Harris will supply adoption of the DVB-T2 standard gives Togo great facilities today and also future-proofs their network for many years to come. We know of no other company that can match Harris abilities throughout the digital video chain.

Vincent Pernin, technical manager, General dAfrique, added: Already, we have developed a close working relationship with Harris team of engineers and technology specialists. We look forward to an exciting period as we move forward in this initiative.

In addition to equipment, Harris will provide a range of consultancy, design and training services. These include already completed site surveys of the studios and TV stations, equipment installation supervision, test and commissioning; and training for all studio kit and production processes, transmission and receiving equipment (system operation and training), satellite uplinks and mobile news gathering systems.
