Inauguration of DVB-T Head-END in Iran
After two years of hard work, finally the efforts of PSQís engineers with a support of Ericson Television Ltd. (formerly Tandbeg TV Ltd.) engineers have resulted in inauguration of the first DVB-T head-end in Iran. ďIRIBís DVB-T head-end was inaugurated on 30th of October 2009 in the presence of IRIBís senior management. This head-end is capable of providing 16 MPEG-4/(SD &HD) TV channels in and 48 Radio channels in AAC+ format. At this time, the system broadcasts in Tehran only.

It is important to note the salient role of this project in the development of Iranís broadcasting technology, as the top IRIB officials called the inauguration of this project, a watershed moment in the history of Iranís broadcasting.
This project was one of major challenge of our engineers and it involved more than two years of planning, design, integration, commissioning and training.
The next step will be the installation of a standby system. In terms of configuration and equipment, the standby system uses the very same solution and material.
