Arris and Sony to demo DVB-C2 with KDG at Cable Congress

Cable technology specialist Arris is to demonstrate support for the new DVB-C2 standard at the forthcoming Cable Congress in Brussels.

The company will present a live demonstration of how the ARRIS D5 Universal Edge QAM can support DVB-C2 broadcast and VOD solutions through a collaborative demonstration with German cable operator Kabel Deutschland (KDG) and Sony.

According to Arris, The demonstration will show how the D5 has enabled KDG to cost-effectively implement QAM sharing. A Sony TV with integrated DVB-C2 tuner, the world’s first TV set supporting the standard, will be used in the demonstration at the Arris stand.

DVB-C2 uses the latest modulation and coding techniques to enable highly efficient use of cable networks, especially in cases where the downstream transmission capacity is already being used to its limit. KDG is currently planning the first delivery of digital TV services via DVB-C2.
