Topic: DVB-S2X: What’s New and in Action!
Satellite has proven to be the technology of choice to enable the technological transition and the emerging deployment of Ultra HD has triggered the development of more efficient transmission technologies over satellite: DVB-S2X.
New video formats like HD and UHD are also driving an upgrade cycle of DTH set-top boxes and connected TV’s. This is going hand-in-hand with the deployment of new compression technologies (H.264 and HEVC).
DVB-S2X is a higher transmission standard which is now a reality. With this a new DVB satellite standard has been published, ushering in a new era of satellite communications, enabling new services and higher transmission efficiency. With UHD transmissions requiring many times the bandwidth of HD and SD a new efficient standard is in high demand.
Newtec is presenting why DVB-S2X is so badly needed and what the new standard brings compared to the well-known DVB-S2 standard. Additionally, comparison measurements from different use cases will be presented.
