Rohde & Schwarz has enhanced its R&S DVMS digital TV monitoring system by adding a new option for monitoring DVB-T2 signals in accordance with the latest version of the ETSI EN 302 755 V1.3.1 standard. The option also supports L1-post scrambling and T2-Lite.

Measuring one height unit, the R&S DVMS can simultaneously monitor the RF and transport stream characteristics of up to four signals, and it is therefore well suited for use at sites with multiple transmitters.

The R&S DVMS monitoring system from Rohde & Schwarz monitors DVB-T2 networks in line with the latest version of the standard.

Network operators can monitor both the DVB-T2 transmitter and the signal feed via the T2 modulator interface (T2-MI) without any additional equipment. The system comes with ASI and IP interfaces.

It is also suitable for monitoring single-frequency networks (SFN) and measuring the RF spectrum (shoulder measurement). The R&S DVMS continues to support DVB-T in the same module, protecting the investments of network operators who later switch to DVB-T2.

The R&S DVMS either displays logged errors and measurement results on a display at the transmitter site or reports them to the monitoring station via SNMP. The system displays measurements graphically for a quick overview.
