History and Background
In December 2009 the United Kingdom became the first nation in the world to use the new DVB-T2 standard to broadcast a free-to-air, high-definition (HD) terrestrial digital television service.
The terrestrial transmitter network used to broadcast the new service, Freeview HD, is owned and operated by Arqiva, the communications infrastructure and media services company.
Rohde & Schwarz and NEC were commissioned to provide DVB-T2 technology for part of the new network. Utilizing world-class technological expertise and resources in the field of broadcasting, a standby transmission network was developed enabling a DVB-T2 solution to be provided during the switchover period.
