Camagüey has the technological conditions for transit to digital television

Camagüey, Oct. 25.- The Radio Cuba branch in Camagüey has the technological conditions to develop the shift from analogue to digital television, which requires equipment acquisition by the population.

Leandro Parada Echevarría, head of that entity, talked to the Cuban News Agency about the existence of modern transmitters that currently carry analog television, said that when transition to digital is made, conditions are created for the signal to reach the entire province.

The province is awaiting the implementation of the partial transfer with the Educational Channel, as it is necessary that each dwelling has a hybrid television or a decoder box, he explained.

Six transmitters for digital terrestrial television (DTT) and one in high definition (HD) have been installed in Camagüey, since in 2013 the first of these devices began operating in the territory.

Parada Echevarría explained that four new transmitters are on the list for the first quarter of next year, one to emit the DTT signal in the municipality of Sierra de Cubitas, and another in HD in Nuevitas, Santa Cruz del Sur and Esmeralda.

At the end of last July, the province of Camagüey, with more than 769 thousand inhabitants, and the largest in the country, had a 63.5% coverage of digital terrestrial television and 41% of HD areas. (ACN) (Photo: Archive)
