T-VIPS, a specialist in professional video contribution and distribution solutions, and ProTelevision, a supplier of the modulators, repeaters and transceivers, have worked together to develop a joint DVB-T2-Lite transmission solution. The solution will power a trial for the Danish operator, Open Channel, which will go live post-IBC. The solution has been designed to enable operators to deploy DVB-T2-Lite for the distribution of video and audio content to mobile devices.
“I’m very excited to be working with ProTelevision to drive forward the new DVB-T2-Lite profile for the broadcast of mobile radio and video content to mobile CE devices,” said Janne T. Morstøl, COO, T-VIPS. “For the operator it’s important that DVB-T2-Lite is a subset of the DVB-T2 standard as it means that flexible DVB-T2 solutions such as the T-VIPS CP560 DVB-T2 Gateway and the ProTelevision DVB-T2 modulator can be upgraded for the deployment of DVB-T2-Lite, minimizing the cost of launching new mobile content services.”
DVB-T2-Lite was ratified by the DVB in July 2011. As a profile optimised for the distribution of video and radio content to mobile devices, it is better suited for viewing video and listening to radio on mobile devices as it is more robust, it requires less transmitter power and it maximises the device battery life.
