Telesystem has launched the first third-generation DTT box in Italy, based on the DVB-T2 standard and equipped with the latest video compression codec HEVC.

The Telesystem TS6800T2 HEVC arrives on the Italian market one year before July 1st 2016 deadline, established by law, that sets the mandatory technical requirements for DTT boxes, in view of the upcoming introduction of the new DVB-T2 digital terrestrial standard in Italy

The digital receiver, which also includes a Media Player (with the possibility of reproduction in MPEG4 H.265 compression) and Digital Video recorder, is on sale in leading electronics retailers in Italy at a suggested retail price of €59.90.
