Radio Television Brunei has unveiled its plans to introduce a new High Definition (HD) channel soon to let local audience enjoy digital quality viewing and as part of RTB's efforts to provide full digital broadcasting within 2017.

This was revealed by RTB's Acting Director Hj Mahrub Hj Murni while being interviewed for the Rampai Pagi programme to mark a soft launching of the live digital broadcasting and transmission at its new HD studio in Kuala Belait.

RTB has made a breakthrough with its fully operational digital studio in KB, equipped with the latest state-of-the-art HD system for the presentation of its programmes in digital format, as well as to provide better sound and picture quality.

The new HD studio in KB has started operation since it was completed in October 2008 and it is currently the only television studio in the country that provides broadcasting in digital format, said Hj Mahrub.

In the process of migration from analogue to digital broadcasting, RTB has taken up major preparations and built infrastructures, such as a satellite transmission in Subok, which was completed early this year.

In addition, there is also the Playout centre with digital equipment, the operational KB digital studio and also its new fully digital complex in Sungai Akar, as well as the provision of relevant staff members with the adequate training to properly operate digital facilities.

Preparations had started as early as 2000, in readying the station for digital coverage, and it will also be developed in phases that require joint cooperation with local production houses, to increase their capacity towards implementing and utilising digital technology, he added.

After a 25-minute live interview session with the acting director, a doa selamat took place at the digital studio inside the new RTB station building at Jalan Maulana KB.
