The Egyptian Radio & Television Union (ERTU) has selected the latest Tandberg Television MPEG-2 4:2:2 SD encoding solutions for the expansion of its SDH microwave network covering the Red Sea and North Coast Sinai. The expanded network is intended to interconnect more than 14 of ERTU’s contribution studios via wireless links, enabling the broadcaster to distribute MPEG-2 4:2:2 content between facilities.

ERTU is Egypt’s national broadcaster and the Middle East’s largest television and radio producer and broadcaster. With facilities throughout the country, ERTU transmits 11 satellite channels via Nilesat, as well as nine local channels with a total viewing audience of approximately 60 million people.

The full ERTU system comprises Tandberg’s MPEG-2 E5710 Encoders, TT1260 Decoders, MX8400 Multiplexer and TT6120 Network adapters, which are fully controlled by nCompass Control, Tandberg’s management system for broadcast headends for configuration, system monitoring and redundancy.
