Arqiva chooses Tandberg for MPEG-2 compression

Broadcast services provider Arqiva has deployed Tandberg Television’s EN8100 MPEG-2 encoder as part of its UK DTT transmission infrastructure.

Tandberg said the new compression system has enabled Arqiva to add two additional channels per 16QAM multiplex and to achieve an improvement in picture quality.
Tandberg’s MPEG-2 solution includes compression, multiplexing and systems management, as well as project integration and commissioning.
