★★★ Royal Projects ★★★

Distant Learning Television (DLTV)

This project was launched on December 5th, 1995, by His Majesty the King from Wang Klaikangwon School near the Royal Palace in Hua Hin. The school broadcasts through 13 channels to more than 7'000 schools in remote provinces. It covers all school levels as well as post-school technical subjects. It transmits in various languages to most neighbouring countries, including China. It has link-ups to Europe and the USA. The project is famous throughout the western world.

Wang Klaikangwon School - this is where the magic happens ...

✈ Introduction • Motivation

The Distance Learning Foundation, Thailand, in cooperation with the Sasakawa Peace Foundation from Japan has organised a training course on "Educational Media Human Resource development in Southeast Asia Countries" during 16 - 24 January 2000 in Thailand.

The event is being held both to celebrate His Majesty the King's 72nd Birthday Anniversary which occured in 1999 and to pay tribute to Her Royal Highness Princess Srinagarindra, the Princess Mother, who was named a Great Personality by UNESCO on the Occasion of Her Birth Centenary in the millenium year.

His Majesty King Bhumibol and HRH Princess Srinagarindra, the Princess Mother, both exhibited strong interest in the country's educational system. Wang Klaikangwon School under the patronage of His Majesty the King is a demonstrative institution with its educational management corresponding to their policies, in keeping with the interest of the Princess Mother in full cycle educationand that of His Majesty the King in lifelong education. Their educational policies have led to the origin of His Majesty's initiative on life long education which utilises an efficient means of modern technology at an economical cost. With this technology, the DTH dish is used in the distance learning system whose communbicationbetween the mother station and distance schools is interactive.

Distance learning helps eliminate educational inequality because it provides the same quality of education, learning and teaching from the same teacher of the same subject at the same time among the participating schools. It also helps solve the problem of teacher shortage in a efficient way since continously hiring teachers and constructing buildings are known to be more expensive processes.

✈ Setup at Wang Klaikangwon School

The Source of all programms is Wang Klaikangwon School, Hua Hin. Because this is the school of (the late) King Bhumibol. The picture below shows the general setup.

DLTV Studio

From the Master Control Room the program is encoded using MPEG2 and then using an 34 MBps Fiber Optic transported to the RF Uplink, using an 11 m dish. Via Thaicom Satellite (Ku Band) it is then broadcasted to a large audience also in many neighboring countries.
