B&B TV chooses Thomson Broadcast for HD services

Thomson Broadcast has announced that B&B TV Communication, the entity responsible for the wireless-cable broadcasting of radio and television channels in Azerbaijan, has purchased its DVB-T/DVB-T2 Elite 100 GreenPower transmitters.

B&B TV will use the air-cooled transmitters to help introduce high-definition digital broadcasting to the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic of Azerbaijan. In the first phase of HD broadcasting, B&B TV will deploy three DVB-T2 television transmitting systems up to 2kW in a 6+1 redundancy configuration. The systems will be completed and on the air by the end of 2012.

“We chose Thomson’s Elite 100 GreenPower transmitter because it gives us the enhanced performance we need for the lowest cost of ownership,” said Sabina Babayeva, CEO of B&B TV. “It is air-cooled, and thanks to the real-time digital adaptive correction technology, we can easily correct linear and non-linear distortions. Elite 100 will allow us to achieve the highest efficiency with guaranteed performance.”
