Dolby Digital Plus audio has been chosen as part of the minimum specification for Turkey’s second generation digital terrestrial television systems (DVB-T2) standard for HD and SD receivers.
Turkey’s Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK) together with the Turkish Standards Institution (TSE) recently published the minimum requirements for receivers in DVB-T2 specifications. Dolby Digital Plus has been identified as a required element of the specification for both HD and SD functionality.
“We’re delighted to see the inclusion of Dolby Digital Plus in the Turkish DVB-T2 standard. It demonstrates the Turkish government’s drive to provide a first-class experience for all consumers and a high-efficiency solution for broadcasters,” said Fritz Deininger, Regional Director, Central Europe, Dolby Laboratories. “The adoption of the DVB-T2 standards for SD and HD broadcasts in Turkey ensures efficient use of limited spectrum. This plays a key role in transforming digital broadcasting in Turkey, and we look forward to working closely with broadcasters to deliver improved services across the region.”
