Harris shows DVB-T2 system at IBC
Harris Corporation is targeting the European terrestrial broadcasting market with an integrated DVB-T2 system. The new Harris Selenio media convergence platform, combining traditional baseband video/audio processing, video/audio compression and IP networking features in a single 3RU frame, can also serve as a complete video headend for DVB-T and DVB-T2 broadcasters. At IBC this week Harris will also introduce a DVB-T2 gateway built into the Selenio platform, supporting redundancy and easier control and monitoring. The integrated, single-box video headend system also includes a single-frequency network (SFN) adapter for single-frequency DVB-T/T2 transmission networks. SFN is being deployed by a number of European terrestrial operators, saving energy and spectrum, while improving coverage.
Harris also offers a range of transmitters for DVB-T, DVB-T2 as well as other global digital terrestrial standards via its Maxiva UHF and Platinum VHF families.
