Systems integration specialists, Megahertz Broadcast Systems and technology integration company, AZCAR have landed a $4.7 million contract for the design, equipment procurement, and systems integration of a new satellite-based program delivery service for Fiji TV, based in Suva, Fiji.
This contract follows an earlier feasibility study by AZCAR and includes studio facility upgrades, a new uplink, conditional access system, set-top boxes and related hardware. The system is scheduled to be in service by the summer.
Megahertz will provide the consolidation and integration of the system, which is being pre-built and shipped to Fiji for installation. The operation will bring a new level of television services to the Fiji islands, some of which will have access, for the first time, to live local programming.
