The National Public Services Authority of Panama is putting out to tender the supply of 50,000 digital boxes for digital TV signals.
This tender is being performed as part of the transition to digital terrestrial television (DTT).
With the beginning of the transition of digital terrestrial television (DTT), on September 14, 2011, under the standard of Digital Video Broadcasting - Terrestrial (DVB-T), Panama marks a technological milestone of great importance for the transformation of television.
With the signing of two regulatory decrees, President Chinchilla has began the process of transition from analogue to digital television.
One of the decrees establishes a Joint Commission which will propose trade mechanisms and processes, standards and policies in the technical, economic and social areas, during the transition from analog television services to digital ones, as well as monitoring compliance with its recommendations. The commission will be composed of representatives from the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Telecommunications, SINART, the Chamber of Info-communication and Technology, the National Council of Rectors and the Costa Rican Chamber of Information Technology and Communication.
In a maximum period of six years the country will migrate to digital TV and discard analog television.
The owner of the Superintendency of Electricity and Telecommunications (Siget), Luis Mendez, said that within a month hearings will begin to determine the digital TV standard to be used in the country.
