Rohde & Schwarz has completed the successful upgrade of a DVB-T2 (HD) terrestrial TV transmitter network in Finland.
The company supplied more than 80 UHF HD transmitters for the project, including R&S THU9evo liquid-cooled UHF transmitters, R&S TMU9evo air-cooled UHF transmitters and TLU9 Low-power UHF transmitters and GapFiller systems.
The country-wide network of transmitters was installed and commissioned by Digita, owner and operator of Finland’s terrestrial network for nationwide TV and radio transmission services.
The first phase became operational 1st January this year, enabling Digita to expand their pay-TV UHF terrestrial networks up to 90 per cent coverage.
In addition to the DVB-T2 upgrade, Rohde & Schwarz and Digita have initiated a 5G Broadcast pilot in the Greater Helsinki region. The pilot utilises the same transmitter.
