Digital TV broadcasting

In 2010, FSUE RTRN has launched construction of 924 facilities for digital broadcasting in 12 regions of Siberia and Russia’s Far East, continued digitalization of TV in St. Petersburg and the region, Moscow, Kaliningrad, Kursk. At these sites 98% of transmitters are made ​​in Russia. The plans of RTRN include taking into operation of 744 objects for digital broadcasting in 2011, 1500 objects in 2012.

As mentioned at CSTB2011 conference (section “Russian radio-electronic industry in the transition to digital broadcasting in Russia”), Yuri Momji, Deputy Director of the Directorate of the program of development of digital broadcasting, FSUE RTRN, In general, the construction of digital networks are widely held by domestic producers of transmitting equipment (“NPP Triada-TV “,” Almaz-Antey Telecommunications “, etc.), antenna-mast structures, containers, steel structures. Last year 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. At the same time, Yuri Momdzhi expressed two wishes to domestic producers who want to participate in the program of transition to digital television broadcasting in Russia.

First, the organization of new industries should focus not on the volume of the program, but on a broader perspective. Wish it due to the fact that now according to Y. Momji RTRN receives many proposals from the companies who organize production on the basis of their own or Western development, formally meeting the requirements of the localization of production in Russia (by the way, Y. Momji reported that “soon” will be adopted at last document that clearly identifies the criteria for domestic production). Second, in matters of pricing policy for domestic enterprises, he advised to follow a common logic. “Many domestic manufacturers put a minimum price for a single product, but then it turns out that for a large order – the price increases – stated Momji. – Normal price policy is that when you order a large batch price is to be reduced, should be discounts etc. – the whole world works so. In addition, the cost of the equipment should include the cost of maintaining the service network, of guarantee support of the operation, etc. If you lay all the necessary expenses that arise when selling and supplying equipment, price spread of the products offered in the domestic market by various manufacturers will be largely equalized. It seems that ARPAT must be involved in pricing, equipment, and harmonization of the conditions of supply, service, must act as a body that represents the interests of domestic enterprises and support enterprises involved in major state programs.”

On her part, Nadezhda Vilkova, General Director of JSC “MNITI” and ARPAT president, said that unification pricing issues will be considered under the Association, but the price itself may change without the will of the manufacturer: “We do not know where we will go tomorrow. If we have increased the price of energy – there is a 10-15% increase in prices of all services, and if prices for the metal – increasing the cost of our equipment in which a lot of metal.”. Meanwhile, in countries where the state provides support to domestic producers, as preferences, among other things, guarantees given by the fixed cost of supplies needed for production equipment. This kind of benefits for its members will seek the Association of developers and manufacturers of equipment broadcasting. Of course, when government’s decision will come out on the priority using the equipment of domestic production …
