erbia adopts DVB-T2
Serbia has decided to use the new DVB-T2 transmission standard for digital terrestrial broadcasting together with MPEG-4 (H.264, AVC) for its forthcoming transition to digital broadcasting. According to the report from Broadband TV News, Jasna Matic, the minister for telecommunications and information society, said that the country would complete its DTT transition by the 4th April, 2012 rather than the 2015 suggested by the ITU in order to be synchronised with the EU and neighbouring countries.
Serbia has become one of the first countries to commit to the DVB-T2 standard. The first was the UK which will use DVB-T2 this autumn for its all HD DTT multiplex.
