Rohde & Schwarz debuts test and measurement for HD+

Technology provider Rohde & Schwarz has introduced test and measurement for equipment for HD+ – the SES HD platform for Germany. 

According to Rohde & Schwarz, it has integrated the HD+ test suites developed by SES Platform Services into its BTC reference reference signal generator with audio/video analysis functions.

The test suites provide a defined environment for testing compliance and self-certification.

The solution covers all functions of the HD+ specifications, allowing HD+ consumer electronics to be fully tested. When combined with the test suites, the Rohde & Schwarz BTC can also be used to perform tests, regardless of location and without the availability of the satellite signal, according to the company.

The HD+ test suites are available for HD+ receivers, HD+ SmartTV receivers and for the HD+ module. The suites each consist of test specifications and the transport stream test library.

The solution allows users to perform automated self-certification tests with just a single instrument, avoiding the need for complex and potentially costly set-ups involving multiple instruments and test solutions form different sources, according to Rohde & Schwarz.

The BTC supports all services included in the DVB-S2 standard – broadcast, professional, interactive and DSNG – and, by applying the current DVB-S2X standard, it can be used to develop next-generation satellite receivers as well, according to Rohde & Schwarz.


Rohde & Schwarz will exhibit at ANGA COM in hall 10.1, stand R7.
