Thailand to Use Europe's DVB-T2 Standard
Bangkokpost.com reports that Thailand will adopt the European digital video broadcasting terrestrial 2 (DVB-T2) standard for commercial digital TV service, says the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission.
The change to digital TV will affect all 20 million households in Thailand.
DVB-T2, the extension of the television standard DVB-T, is used in 38 countries worldwide. The Asean-guaranteed technology enables high-definition broadcasting and supports a variety of services.
The cabinet on May 20 approved DVB-T2 as the digital broadcasting standard in compliance with the NBTC’s proposal.
