Topic: Video Delivery Media - Wherever Next? How Good Are The New DVB-S2 Extensions Really?
In a recent survey by Newtec, including responses from over 400 satellite companies and 700 participants in the satellite industry, 98 percent regard standards as very important. One out of two say they will switch to the new S2 Extensions, an update to the world-leading DVB-S2 standard, within a very short time frame. One of the main drivers for the switch is the ever-continuing need for more content contribution and distribution, and therefore a higher bandwidth efficiency – 62 percent will switch to S2 Extensions if it means a 15 percent gain or more. So, the question is, will the S2 Extensions live up to the expectations?
