In less than a decade, DVB-T2 has seen rapid adoption in markets like the United Kingdom (Freeview HD), Suriname (Wise, designed and deployed by Divitel) and Germany (Freenet TV, also with assistance from Divitel). The benefits for end-users are obvious, but how do you migrate your DVB-T platform or even start a new platform from scratch?
Divitel has experience designing, building and deploying highly agile and effective DVB-T2 platforms, all over the globe. Want to know more or discuss a specific project? Fill out the form on this page or send us an email at [email protected] – We’ll get back to you within 24 hours
As the next generation of terrestrial distribution technology (DTT), DVB-T2 offers more bandwidth, efficiency, robustness and flexibility than its predecessor. Most importantly for end-users, it’s specifically suited to carry HDTV signals through terrestrial TV channels. The result is a wider selection, better quality and higher resolutions for end-users that – more often than not – have an HDTV at home.
The specifics for T2 were agreed upon by the DVB Steering Board in June of 2008. Formal adoption took place in September of 2009 and concerned the following characteristics:
Single Transport Stream
Multiple Transport Stream and Generic Stream Encapsulation (GSE)
Constant Coding & Modulation
Variable Coding and Modulation
Forward Error Corrections (FEC)
Convolutional Coding + Reed Solomon 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8
LCPC + BCH
1/2, 3/5, 2/3, 3/4, 4/5, 5/6
QPSK, 15QAM, 64QAM
QPSK, 16QAM, 64QAM, 256QAM
1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32
1/4, 19/128, 1/8, 19/256, 1/16, 1/32, 1/128

With the deployment of WISE DTT TV, Divitel was the very first company to implement DVB-T2 in the whole of Latin America. This first experience with the technology led to learnings that have since been leveraged to greatly speed up the deployment of similar systems for customers in other parts of the world. Lloyd Groenhart, managing director at Wise commented: “What is important to me is that I enter into a partnership, which is something else than the relationship I have with the supermarket chain in which I shop weekly. Partnership from a Surinamese perspective is about looking after each other from a commercial, technical, operational etc. perspective. Divitel is that partner for us.”
