-- ENENSYS has announced that it has supplied its T2 Gateway and NetMod modulator to KBS for use in their Ultra High Definition project. KBS is broadcasting one DVB-T2 6Mhz channel from their Kwanak transmitter site in Seoul, carrying a 4K UHDTV service at 36.5Mbps. The HEVC encoder output is fed to the T2 Gateway and then to the NetMod, for reception by DVB-T2 receivers and display on 4K UHDTV panels.
The equipment was supplied via SMCNS, ENENSYS’ local partner in Korea after an extensive evaluation period. The project has proven the possibility of terrestrial transmission of 4K UHDTV content and represents a world-first. The KBS Technical Research Institute will continue the DVB-T2 transmissions during 2013 as part of its on-going programme of research on 4K and 8K coding and transmission.
Colin Prior, Regional Sales Manager for Enensys said, ‘we are delighted that KBS has selected Enensys technology to be part of this innovative project that demonstrates the flexibility of DVB-T2’.
