This contract supports the expansion of digital terrestrial TV broadcasting in the Philippines, which has been gaining momentum since November 2013, when the country adopted the Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting Technologies (ISDB-T) standard.

Under this contract, PTNI is scheduled to introduce digital terrestrial TV transmitters and compression multiplexers across six locations* in the Philippines by July 2017. NEC is providing total support for the introduction of these units, including their provision, installation, and the training of personnel.

The equipment that NEC is slated to provide features some of the world's highest levels of power efficiency, and is highly evaluated for superior reliability in the broadcasting field.

"NEC is proud to be working with PTNI to expand the delivery of high quality broadcasting to a larger audience in the Philippines," said Elizabeth Pangan, President, NEC Philippines. "As part of NEC's focus on providing Solutions for Society, this equipment will help to ensure that broadcasting and access to information is reliably maintained, especially during times of emergency, such as when powerful storms strike the region."

NEC began providing digital terrestrial TV transmitters for international markets in 1998, when it provided equipment for the world's first commercial digital terrestrial broadcasting service in the United Kingdom. Since then, NEC has shipped more than 4,500 transmitters to over 50 countries throughout the world.
