    VDL supports DAB+ digital radio trial in Poland’s Capital City
    In preparation for securing Poland’s digital radio future, EmiTel, the Polish network operator, has been running a trial of DAB+ audio and DMB mobile video services in the Polish capital city, Warsaw, since November 2009.

    In a joint venture between public and commercial broadcasters, the trial broadcast comprises five public radio stations: Jedynka, Dwojka, Trojka, Radio EURO and Radio dla Ciebie; seven commercial stations RMF FM, RMF Classic, Radio ZET, Chilli ZET, Tok FM, Radio ESKA and Radio Maryja, plus a DMB mobile TV service from Radio EURO.

    The trial in Warsaw, Poland’s capital city covers approximately 2.5 million people for mobile reception and 2.1 million people for indoor reception. The transmitter, located on the famous Palace of Culture and a Science, in the city centre, raises awareness amongst a larger proportion of Polish radio listeners to the potential of digital radio including new content, data and multimedia services.

    The Head-end equipment, comprising Audio and Video Encoders, plus Ensemble Multiplexer, was supplied by VDL (Lyon, France) and its partner AVT (Nuremberg, Germany), who also handled the installation, system integration and training.
