The participants of different invited institutions could enjoy and corroborate the advantages of taking a system of digital TV as the ISDB-T, which is such a robust system to overcome high speeds, besides being immune to the noise provoked by the same city in the distance. In parallel with the one-seg, an analogical TV set shows the same live content to compare the signal quality.
There took part approximately 80 persons distributed in 10 executed tours demonstrating unequivocally the benefits of the Standard ISDB-T.
