DVB-C2 Field Test

17 September 2010

Just as you thought that all the news is only about DVB-T2, here is some very important news on DVB-C2:

On September 7th, 2010, Kabel Deutschland has successfully performed DVB-C2 transmission tests in its Berlin cable network. The highlight of those tests was the successful transmission of 1024-QAM and even 4096-QAM constellations, the most complex and spectrum efficient configurations of the new DVB-C2 cable standard, in a fully loaded 862 MHz cable network.

The first DVB-C2 tuners are expected mid-2011.
