May 20, 2014 Sri Lanka’s Decision to adopt ISDB-T

On Tuesday May 20, Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications remarked on the adoption of ISDB-T, the Japanese digital terrestrial TV standard, by Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka.

While Sri Lanka decided to adopt the European standard in 2010, they have been reviewing their digital TV standard to adopt from the technical viewpoints. The decision this time has come to adopt the Japanese standard, retracting their previous decision. With their decision, Sri Lanka has now become the 17th country adopting the ISDB-T standard.
