Chinese support to improve Lao television

The Chinese government will help Lao National Television (LNTV) to upgrade its support technology for Channel 3, as some of the channel's equipment is outdated.

The minutes of a meeting on a feasibility study carried out for Phase II of a technical assistance project for LNTV were signed in Vientiane on Friday.

The document was signed by LNTV and China Radio and Television Co., for International Techno-Economic Cooperation (CRTV). The two sides had jointly conducted the study over a period of one week.

LNTV Director General Dr Bounchom Vongphet and CRTV Overseas Department Manager Liu Dongsheng signed the minutes.

Lao National Television Channel 3 was revamped in 2009 through funding from the Chinese government of about US$12 million. The upgrade involved the construction of a new building and the supply of all necessary infrastructure and equipment for the television channel.

After four years of broadcasting, some components and parts of the equipment have degraded and need to be repaired or replaced.

As a result of the study the Chinese side has agreed to provide a new video service for broadcasting and an outside broadcast vehicle as the main items of the assistance.

They will also provide other pieces of equipment such as router control panels, a broadcast system, optical transmitters and receivers, studio HDV cameras, and sound mixers.

The Chinese side will appoint a technical team to work with their Lao colleagues during the two years of the Phase II assistance package. The Lao side suggested the

Chinese technicians train LNTV staff on the use and maintenance of the equipment.

At the meeting Liu said he was confident that LNTV Channel 3 will function better after the technical improvements.
