Mongolia to introduce Digital Television System by July 2014


-Digital Television aerials installed at 89 locations across Mongolia-

Currently, Mongolia uses Analog Television System, but preparation work for integrating a nationwide Digital Television (DTV) System is set to be completed by July 31, 2014. As of November 9, DTV aerials have been installed at 89 soums throughout Mongolia and 48 have started trials.

In short, a DTV will allow all viewers in Mongolia to watch channels with high resolution regardless of their location or television quality.  Ghosting of images, interferences from weak signals, and many other issues that degrade the quality of broadcasted images and sound will be erased as DTV only supports reception from complete digital signal, which means it requires a high synchronization of both audio and video broadcasts.

Households using analog television via antennas will be able to directly use the DTV by installing a small converting device to their television sets.

Officials said that the analog to digital convertors are also under trial. The marketing price and supply of the convertors will be approved by the government by the end of this year, according to the managers of the project.

The introduction of a new broadcasting system will not outcast the Analog Television System. Viewers will be able to choose whether to transfer to digital or stay with their former method.

Officials estimate that each convertor device will cost around 25,000 to 50,000 MNT.
