DVB @ ABU DBS 2012

DVB and more than 10 DVB members will be presenting and demonstrating DVB-T2 technologies at the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) Digital Broadcasting Symposium in Kuala Lumpur from March 6 to 9.

Visitors of the DVB booth (No. 25) can see a combined DVB-T2 transmission of 3D, HD and SD content in a single multiplex. The use of this  Multiple PLP technology  demonstrates the flexibility of the most advanced DTT standard. This demo is supported by DVB members Teamcast and Sony with a T2 modulator and DVB-T2 TV’s.
