SBS improves digital distribution

Special Broadcasting Service (SBS), Australia’s speciality pub-caster, has bought Tandberg IP-based head end architecture for its DTT network.
The equipment being supplied includes SD and HDTV encoders, as well as dense multiplexing and embedded SFN kit.
SBS which began operations in January 2001 now estimates that it reaches 96% of the Australian population.
The new centralised head-end will generate DVB-T transport streams for 12 separate regions.
