CSA allows limited HD/DTT trials

The CSA has announced plans to clear channels for HDTV trials on a temporary basis in Paris, Lyon and Marseille. The trial may be extended to other cities on a non-interference basis to other services.
The CSA has invited interested parties to apply for licences permitting HDTV services using DTT platforms for the trials which will last for a period of nine months.
Applicants will be able to use MPEG-4 compression to provide two HDTV services in the allocated channel slot.
The closing date for applications is April 28th, 2006.
