NXP Semiconductors presented an end-to-end DVB-T2 technology-based transmission during the IBC 2008 conference in Amsterdam. The presentation featured NXP's silicon tuner TDA18211HN and one of the first prototypes of NXP's DVB-T2 demodulator TDA10055, which will promote NXP's wide array of front-end offerings for digital TV reception.

Recognizing the success of NXP's DVB-T receivers, the new demodulator's architecture will present all the benefits of DVB-T2, claimed as the most advanced digital terrestrial TV system. The company created its DVB-T2 demonstration at IBC in partnership with Enensys Technologies and Pace plc.

Reaching larger audience
"DVB-T2 is the upcoming edge in the TV revolution in our living rooms, giving the most efficient means to bring HDTV to household consumers over terrestrial networks. NXP, working on its leadership in DVB-T silicon tuners and demodulators, is happy to showcase the first prototype of its DVB-T2 solution," said Christos Lagomichos, executive VP and general manager of the home business unit, NXP. "Advancements in technology innovation are made possible when firms synergize their expertise," he added.

Getting much attention of the consumers, broadcasters will provide attractive services, including a much larger array of high-definition channels, which promise high capacity and reliability of the DVB-T2 digital terrestrial transmission system.

With the high bandwidth used by these services, a strong need for highly efficient transmission techniques is sought. DVB-T2 is an ideal solution, enabling an unsurpassed level of signal robustness and bandwidth, while still complying with the existing antenna infrastructure. As the analog terrestrial switch-off gives out some spectrum, it gives an opportunity to introduce services based on the new technology.
