FLO Forum completes Repeater Minimum Performance Specification

As part of its push for the open standardization of FLO technology, the FLO Forum recently completed the FLO Repeater Minimum Performance Specification.

The new specification has been submitted to the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-47.1 subcommittee. If it is approved — after the normal standardization review and comment procedures — the specification will be published as the TIA-1132 Minimum Performance Specification for Terrestrial Mobile Multimedia Multicast Forward Link Only Repeaters.

The proposed standard specifies a minimum set of test and performance characteristics to ensure that a FLO repeater can provide service in any network that meets the compatibility requirements previously outlined by the FLO Air Interface Specification, published as TIA-1099 in July 2006. This ensures that any FLO repeater is able to receive and transmit waveforms containing multicast service information that can be received by any FLO device.

Following TIA-1099, the TIA has published four additional major FLO Air Interface-related standards, including TIA-1102, TIA-1103, TIA-1104 and TIA-1120, covering the FLO Air Interface Specification, Minimum Performance Standards for Devices, Minimum Performance Standards for Transmitters, Test Application Protocol for Devices and Transmitters and Transport Specification, respectively.

The FLO Forum’s Test and Certification Committee developed and approved the specification.

With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
