    New Partnership Programme for Digital Radio and mobile-TV Trials

    With more and more broadcasters showing interest in the Eureka 147 family of standards (DAB, DAB+, DMB) as the most versatile and effective multimedia platform for digital radio terrestrial broadcasting, attention is often focussed on running trials. These trials can typically run for 6 or 12-months and broadcasters are, naturally, very interested in both the cost and ease of operation.

    Using many years of experience in supporting both trials and deployment of digital radio and mobile-TV networks in Europe and Asia, VDL (Lyon, France) and SM CNS (Seoul, Korea) are now offering a Trials Partnership Programme to broadcasters. This provides head-end equipment on favourable commercial terms, with the added benefits of friendly support and training.
    For the broadcaster, the costs of running the trial are minimised, both in financial terms and also the level of technical resource needed to configure and operate the head-end equipment (multiplexer and encoders), thanks to their integration and ease-of use.

    VDL and SM CNS have been commercial and technology partners since 2005. Their industry-leading encoding, multiplexing, monitoring and analysis products have gained an outstanding reputation for technical excellence, based on ease-of-use, reliability and cost-effectiveness.

    As a result, VDL and SM CNS have supported broadcaster trials as well as commercial deployment of digital radio and mobile-TV in Europe, Asia and Africa in recent years, leading to the largest number of professional DAB, DAB+ and DMB product references in the market, including around 100 installed head-end systems.

    In addition to head-end systems VDL and SM CNS offer a comprehensive range of innovative monitoring and analysis products that can be used to evaluate performance during trials, for continuous operation on deployed systems and for research & development applications.
