“The adoption of the ISDB-T standard was the result of a thorough process of research and evaluation of available options, in order to determine the most appropriate DTT standard for our country as we move forward to meet our switchover target of 2015,” said Minister for Presidential Affairs and Public Administration Mokgweetsi Masisi.

Masisi said the decision was a result after testing both DVB-T2 and ISDB-T. “This process has involved comparative testing between the two leading international standards, namely Digital Video Broadcasting-Television second generation (DVB-T2) as well as ISDB-T. I can now report that the tests revealed that the ISDB-T standard has significant advantages over DVB-T2.”
