NURTS Digital EAD selects Harris for DTV transition

Bulgarian TV transmission network operator NURTS Digital EAD has awarded Harris Corporation a nearly $8 million contract to transition the country to DVB-T over-the-air digital television (DTV). The project will spread services into more sparsely populated rural areas and represents the completion of Bulgaria’s TV digitisation strategy as the government moves toward an analogue TV switch-off date in early 2013. Harris, in cooperation with its Bulgarian dealer, New Tek, will supply 196 transmission sites with Maxiva UAX DVB-T air-cooled transmitters and low-power Maxiva UAX Compact Class gap filler systems with power ratings between 10W and 1kW. The pre-assembled transmission systems, now being delivered, are ready for installation upon arrival. “The delivery schedule for this project is extremely short – we must install the entire network before winter closes in, so that the network is fully operational by early 2013 when we plan to switch over to DVB-T digital terrestrial TV transmission,” said Alexander Kirilov, CTO, NURTS Digital
