Rohde & Schwarz extends TV analyzer capabilities
The R&S ETL TV analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz now offers options that support the North American ATSC Mobile DTV standard, the U.S. J.83/B cable standard and the Japanese ISDB-T standard. In addition, software for automated compliance testing of ATSC transmitters is being made available free of charge, for a multistandard, all-in-one solution for transmitter operators, transmitter manufacturers and regulatory agencies.
The R&S ETL performs all required measurements on TV transmitters or cable headends for quality assurance in the production of TV transmitters or modulators. The R&S ETL-K220 option for ATSC handles measurements on the RF layer in line with the new ATSC Mobile DTV standard. The R&S ETL-K221 option can be used to optimize ATSC and ATSC Mobile DTV single-frequency networks. When equipped with two other new options, the R&S ETL also supports the U.S. J.83/B cable standard and the Japanese ISDB-T standard.
The R&S ETL-K221 option for ATSC/ATSC Mobile DTV single-frequency measurements is available now from Rohde & Schwarz. The R&S ETL-K260 option for ISDB-T and the R&S ETL-K213 option for J.83/B will be available in June.
