The Latvian State Radio and TV Centre (LVRTC) has launched an open international tender for digital TV infrastructure to cover the whole of the country.

DB points point that this is the fifth international tender the body has launched so far this year, the others being for antenna system components, DMV antenna systems, TV transmitters for TV broadcast systems and for MPEG-4 compression package delivery.

The incumbent Latvian telco Lattelecom secured a licence to operate a DTT service at the beginning of this year and is expected to launch a full service shortly.
