Munich, July 20, 2009 — At this year’s IBC broadcasting trade fair, Rohde & Schwarz will focus on the new DVB-T2 standard. In hall 8, booth D35, the company will showcase its transmitter and T&M solutions for the successor to DVB-T. In addition, the R&S NX8500 VHF high-power transmitter will premiere in Amsterdam. True to the motto of “Driving Efficiency”, the liquid-cooled transmitter will impress visitors with its extremely energy-efficient and cost-saving operation. Moreover, the R&S SCx8000 compact transmitter, which was introduced to great acclaim at NAB, will now also be presented as an outdoor solution.
DVB-T2 is the next phase in the evolution of the established DVB-T standard for digital terrestrial television. By using new processes, DVB-T2 offers 30 % higher transmission capacity, which allows more channels and, above all, program content to be transmitted in HD quality.
Rohde & Schwarz supports the introduction and expansion of DVB-T2 with a balanced portfolio of T&M equipment and transmitters. At IBC, the company will showcase its R&S SFU broadcast test system with DVB-T2 option for tests on DVB-T2 receivers. Plus, the R&S ETL TV analyzer is already prepared for DVB-T2. Furthermore, the R&S SLx8000 will be representing the company’s transmitter portfolio. As a low-power transmitter, it is particularly well-suited for implementing initial DVB-T2 trial networks.
In addition, Rohde & Schwarz will take part in a demo at the DVB project booth (booth D81 in hall 1) by providing DVB-T2 equipment.
A press day for presenting the new products will take place on September 11. To see what is new, drop by the Rohde & Schwarz booth any time between 12:00 noon and 6:00 p.m.
