Philippines confirms ISDB standard

November 4, 2013 11.35 Europe/London By Julian Clover

The Philippines will use the Japanese ISDB standard for the transmission of digital television services.

The move was confirmed by the National Telecommunications Commission, following a public meeting held on October 29. It said there had been no opposition from stakeholders.

Two years ago, following the official adoption of the technology, the Commission had been ordered to examine the possibility of using DVB-T2.

The Commission will now issue a formal circular on the adoption that will take effect by the end of November.
