In the year 2015 during the TV you watch this (analog) will be shifted to be replaced by Digital TV. So, inevitably you have to change to digital TV this year began to be tested in Java and Riau Islands.
change from analog TV to digital TV is based on deal Frequensy Plan The
Geneva Agreement of 2006 which approved all member countries of the ITU
(International Telecommunication Union), an agency under the United
Nations special care of telecommunications. Indonesia is a member of the ITU, so it should be subject to the decisions of this organization. The deal is scheduled in 2015 as the end of analog TV era, the kind we used to watch TV over the years.
The question is: why have turned to digital?
explanation is something like this: digital TV will lead to efficiency
in the use of frequency, which was originally on a single frequency
analog system to a TV, the digital system can be for a single frequency
channel 12, if the use of technology DVBT 2, or 8 channels if using only
In 2007 Indonesia has issued Regulation No. Minister of Communications and Informatics. 7 of Terrestrial Digital Broadcasting Standard. At that Indonesia plans to use only DVBT (one frequency can be up to 8 TV channels). This candy is the implementation of Regulation 50 of 2005 on private broadcasting institutions. Candy also issued no further. 39 of 2009 on the Implementation of Digital Terrestrial Television Broadcasting Equipment Acceptance Not Paid. Based
on this candy we conducted trials of digital TV, which was organized by
two institutions, namely TVRI and Digital TV Consortium Indonesia in
Jakarta and other major cities in Java. Beginning in 2009, until now such a trial could still be seen if we have a digital TV or using the tools of Set Top Box.
After testing of the years 2009 to 2011, was issued Candy Replacement (new), that is, no candy. 22 in 2011, on the Implementation of Digital Terrestrial Television Reception Reception Still not Paid (Fre to Air). Difference with the previous candy: if the original use is now wearing DVBT DVBT 2. Similar to that used Italy, USA, etc..
map based planning and strengthened in 2011 Perman 22 simulcast will be
carried out, which is broadcast simultaneously between the Analog as it
is now, together with Digital which will also be broadcast. To
a digital broadcast in each zone (eg, a zone of Jakarta, East Java, one
zone) will be provided 6 Multiplexer / MUX (6 frequencies), each
multiplexer can be filled 12 TV channels. So in every major city there will be 6 Mux, so that in each zone can be (maximum) 72 TV channels. Compare
this with the maximum current in each city should only be 12 to 16
channels, 10 channels and even then already occupied a large TV''s from
Jakarta, so the New TV and Local TV gets a little rations.
Indonesia is divided into 15 zones, meaning there is also a (maximum) 15 X 6 Muks, each of which there are 72 TV channels. Thus would allow the diversity of content better.
Another advantage of digital TV, in addition to more choice, as well as the quality of picture and clearer sound. Because
the number of actors more broadcasts, will encourage more competition
broadcast-quality program, the employment of more. If
Indonesia does not want to change to digital, we would be isolated
because of all the TV industry is no longer producing analog TV. Content industry will also be digital.
be able to access digital TV broadcasts, you need a digital TV, or
still use the old TV set top box but added (production of students of
Vocational High School) at a price between 150 thousand to 350 thousand IDR.
