Broadcasting equipment

COMMTIA plays an essential role in shaping tomorrow’s digital radio and television

Broadcasting services continue to be an attractive offer as the most direct and reliable information media to a mass audience. In addition, once you have the receiving equipment, the service is free. Broadcast signals are more far-reaching than the cable, broadband or cellular networks.

The evolution of digital broadcasting involves increasing the capacity of broadband and the services available, the improvement of the image quality and the coverage. By 2020, the majority of countries around the world will have completed the transition to digital television.

Therefore, broadcasting technology has to evolve with the needs of radio and TV agencies, and the tastes of users, who want versatile information and entertainment, available anytime, anywhere. That means creating new standards that will facilitate more credible, interactive and personalized media. Different groups of experts are working in diverse countries around the world in the development of new digital broadcasting standards that would allow the transmission to all kinds of smart and mobile devices.

The FOBTV initiative integrates worldwide broadcasting equipment and consumer electronics manufacturers, which collaborate in the development of the next broadcasting systems generation.

It is also to respond to the challenge of limited radio spectrum, by optimizing data compression algorithms, which reduces the number of bits required for a programme emission, with which broadcasters can use that saved capacity to transmit additional information.

Facing these challenges, antennas and passive systems for terrestrial broadcasting, designs and manufactures COMMTIA play an essential role in shaping tomorrow’s digital radio and television.
