The focus of the course was DVB-T2 system, network planning, design, architecture and measurements.  Mats Ek, Technical Director at PROGIRA, conducted the training assisted by Kenneth Wenzel

The course covered for example the following subjects:

  • DVB-T2 system properties
  • DVB-T2 lite
  • Future Broadcast systems
  • DVB-T2 network planning
  • SFN network Planning

  • Network architecture Demos of transmission chain including T2-Gateway
  • Measurement techniques
  • DVB-T2 receivers including portable and mobile receivers

The feedback from the participants was very positive, and it is likely that Progira will offer this course on a regular basis, not only as a tailor-made course, during autumn 2015. Time and place will be announced on the PROGIRA web shortly.
