Australian broadcaster chooses TANDBERG Television for DTT network

Australia’s Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) has selected the TANDBERG Television IP-based iSIS 8000 headend architecture for its digital terrestrial television network.

TANDBERG Television is supplying SD and HDTV encoders, dense multiplexing and an embedded single frequency network adaptation, based around a core of flexible IP switching.

SBS’s digital television services began in January 2001 and currently reach an estimated 96 percent of the Australian population. The new centralized headend will generate DVB-T transport streams for 12 separate regions. This is the first deployment of TANDBERG Television’s iSIS 8000 IP head-end architecture for the Australian DTT market and is the first deployment worldwide of dense SFN adaptation as part of the TANDBERG MX8400 IP multiplexer.
