Harris offers integrated DVB-T2 transmission system
Harris is supporting the DVB-T2 digital standard, which allows a more efficient use of terrestrial spectrum, enabling broadcasters to deliver new digital services to fixed and mobile consumer devices.
At IBC2011 in September, Harris demonstrated an integrated DVB-T2 system for digital terrestrial transmission, consisting of a compact video headend, test and measurement equipment, and digital transmitters.
The Harris DVB-T2 system includes:
Selenio, a compact video headend with integrated DVB-T2 gateway that eliminates the need to source a third-party, stand-alone gateway and manage potential interoperability issues;
MSA Series test equipment with a DVB-T2 option enables real-time monitoring of multiple channels in a 1RU package; and
Efficient DVB-T2 transmitters ranging from 5W to 28kW.
