Digita switches from DVB-H to DVB-T2

Finland’s ministry of culture has given Digita permission to switch its DVB-H transmissions to the DVB-T2 standard.
The change follows the launch of the new DVB-T2 Lite protocol which Digita says will allow it to run a unified service for fixed and mobile reception.
“We are pleased with the decision to change Multiplex D to DVB-T2, a system suitable for mobile reception,” Digita’s James Harno said.
Digita’s new online content is aimed at cell phones in addition to portable terminals such as laptops, tablet PCs and iPads. Harno went on to say that “the technology will allows it a new and modern way to bring mobile and high-definition content to the modern consumer’s mobile lifestyle”.
Harno also said that Digita strongly believed in portable receivers that would lead to widespread wireless reception.
