Harris develops DVB-H transmission systems

Harris’ Broadcast Communications Division will feature a live, end-to-end DVB-H demonstration in its booth during NAB2005. The Harris products will allow users to create content, move it through the production chain and deliver it to mobile devices such as cellular phones. The content will represent typical live broadcast television programming as opposed to the short video clips that are the current standard in mobile video.

The demonstration will feature UDcast’s multi-protocol encapsulator for data insertion, Harris’ DVB-H compatible Synchrony SFN (Single Frequency Network) adapter, and its fully DVB-H compliant Atlas DTV660 transmitter.

DVB-H allows simultaneous transmission of multichannel television, radio, video, audio and IP data to a range of multimedia receivers including cellular phones, PDAs, PCs and other handheld devices. DVB-H uses MPEG-4 AVC, Windows Media 9, AAC and other advanced video coding and bandwidth-efficient compression technologies to deliver high-quality services to small-screen devices.
