New Delhi: Public broadcaster Prasar Bharati will shut down its existing analogue system of terrestrial transmission in 19 cities by this month.

In the second phase, the plan it to move another 44 cities to digital terrestrial transmission in a couple of years.

 

Speaking at the CII BIG Picture Summit, CEO Shashi S. Vempati stated that the revamp is part of Prasar Bharati’s plans to migrate to digital mode completely.

“In 19 cities, we already have digital terrestrial transmitters and in those cities by the end of this month we would shut down the analogue completely,” Mr Vempati said.

He said the capacity of transmission through the digital system will increase to 7 to 12 terrestrial channels as compared to just one in the analogue system. The migration to digital system will also open the window of opportunity to carry private channel on Prasar Bharati’s platform, he said.
