In September and October 2011 all the equipment needed for compression, multiplexing and transport of signals over fiber optic and microwave links for 12 digital television programs and 10 radio broadcasting programs were delivered, installed and put into operation.
Six standard definition television programs are broadcast via satellite in the DVB-S standard to the whole territory of Turkmenistan, and the broadcasting of 6 programs in high definition (HD) is arranged in the modern standard of digital terrestrial television DVB-T2. Work is underway to organize the broadcasting of a new sports program of Turkmen TV.
In September 2011 Krasnoyarsk Regional Foundation for scientific and technical activity supported Prima Telecom JSC and Siberian Federal University project “The development and launch of mass production of import-substituting broadband antennas for the transition to digital broadcasting within the federal target program”. The support involves the allocation of targeted funding of 11 million roubles. Prima Telecom JSC and SibFU already invested 16 million rubles in this project.
As the project manager, Deputy General Director Oleg Krotov stated, that mass production of antennas will allow the company to occupy natural regional market niche and claim a larger segment of the market in Russia and CIS countries. It is worth noting that antennas which meet the requirements of modern technologies were not produced in Russia before.
In general, the construction of digital networks are widely held by domestic producers of transmitting equipment, antenna-mast structures, containers, steel structures. Last year (2010) the situation began to improve in favor of domestic equipment in the segment of antenna-feeder devices: after the comparative tests of products of Prima Telecom JSC and their foreign counterparts RTRN started to buy antenna system from the Russian manufacturer.
