Enensys takes part in UHD DTT roll-out in France
February 9, 2024
Enensys Technologies, a provider of media delivery solutions, has announced its participation in the modernisation of DTT in France, with the adoption of its OneBeam solution for France Télévisions’ Ultra HD broadcasting project on French territory.
The UHD broadcasts of France 2 and France 3 channels offer a high-quality visual and audio experience to millions of viewers. To achieve this, France Télévisions relies on the DVB-T2 standard to broadcast content at high bitrates to all French households. UHD broadcasting went live on January 23rd for France 2, and France 3 UHD will be broadcast from July 10th for a period of 2 months.
The project is based on DVB-SIS (Single Illumination System) technology, an innovative standard to which Enensys has made a major contribution and implemented with its OneBeam solution. This technology enables France Télévisions to mutualise satellite links to serve both terrestrial DTT broadcast transmitters and DTH satellite reception homes. In this way, the audiovisual group significantly optimises the satellite transport of its TV streams.
With the ambition of a transition to full UHD in the next few years, the OneBeam solution enables a faster deployment. It would only require a single satellite distribution and a single shared head-end to cover the entire French population, says Enensys.
Régis Le Roux, founder and CEO of Enensys Technologies, commented: “We’re delighted to be taking part in the modernisation of DTT in France. By distributing high-quality content with UHD, we’re helping to meet consumers’ growing expectations in terms of visual quality. Thanks to our OneBeam solution, already proven internationally for 10 years, we are enabling media groups like France Télévisions to deploy their second-generation infrastructure faster and at lower cost.”
