Slovenia goes with MPEG-4 for the DTT platform

Despite previous reports that Slovenia would side with bordering countries and use MPEG-2, the Slovenian regulator for postal and electronic communications, APEK, has announced the selection of the MPEG-4 AVC video compression standard for the DTT platform.
The MPEG-4 AVC standard has been selected because of its improved spectrum efficiency compared with MPEG-2 and the consequent ability to fit more channels into the available frequency allocations.
