Gibraltar Turns on DAB Multiplexes
Gibraltar - Dec 18, 2012 - Gibraltar Chief Minister, the Hon. Fabian Picardo MP, officially launched Gibraltar's digital broadcasting network at midday on Dec. 18, 2012. He also unveiled a plaque at the Upper Signal Station on the top of the Rock where the transmitters and mast are located.
The new network comprises two DAB radio multiplexes, each capable of carrying four radio programs, along with two digital television multiplexes.
Earlier this year, the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority awarded the tender to Arqiva to build the digital infrastructure in Gibraltar. Arqiva is a communications infrastructure and media services company that much of the infrastructure behind television, radio, satellite and wireless communications in the UK and has a significant presence in Ireland and mainland Europe.
Throughout most of this year Arqiva has been busy working non-stop in order to meet the end of year deadline for the discontinuation of analog television in Gibraltar. System testing began at the end of November.
