Arqiva and Enensys, a broadcast network equipment provider, have confirmed their collaboration on the ongoing terrestrial high-definition TV pilot launched from the Crystal Palace transmitter in south London, utilising the new DVB-T2 standard.
DVB-T2 test transmissions are being carried out in order to validate the performance expectations of the DVB-T2 specification. Arqiva has announced that Enensys have provided the real-time and hardware-based DVB-T2 modulator, which has been connected to the Arqiva transmission equipment at the Crystal Palace site.
Michel Hello, Transmission Product Manager at Enensys, said: "DVB-T2 will be the next element of the TV revolution in our living room, providing the most efficient and robust way to bring HDTV to end consumers over terrestrial networks. Enensys is particularly proud to have joined forces for this new challenge with Arqiva to make DVB-T2 a reality in the UK".
Mike Brooks, Head of Technical Development for DVB-T2 at Arqiva, added: "This is a very important stage in the process of introducing terrestrial HD transmissions to the UK network and ensuring such services reach the widest audience. It also sends a clear message that the DVB-T2 technology is real, and encourages the supply of compatible receivers from a wide variety of manufacturers. We are delighted to be working with all the members of the Pilot Steering Group under Ofcom's leadership to take this project forward."
