Bayerischer Rundfunk Puts New Headend from Rohde & Schwarz into Operation

Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR), Bavaria’s public broadcasting service, has gone on the air with the new R&S®AVHE100 headend from Rohde & Schwarz. BR is the first to use this headend for its DVB-T2 test operations. BR broadcasts one program in HD and several programs in SD in Munich and the surrounding area.

Experts from Rohde & Schwarz, BR and RBT (a technical consortium of the German public broadcasters) have already integrated the innovative system into their existing infrastructures. Sophisticated testing performed by BR and RBT is delivering proof of the stability and quality of the components. The R&S®AVHE100 takes a completely new approach to headend architecture. The professional R&S®AVS100 IT server in combination with proprietary software modules now makes it possible to integrate several previously separate functional units such as encoders, multiplexers or T2 gateways into a single, compact, 1 HU enclosure.

Bayerischer Rundfunk is also using the R&S®AVG100 audio/video gateway, which converts broadcast signals such as HD-SDI, SD-SDI and ASI into IP transport streams. Error control is improved due to the use of forward error correction in line with Pro-MPEG CoP#3/SMPTE 20/22.

With the introduction of the R&S®AVHE100, Rohde & Schwarz has succeeded in dramatically reducing signal delay between headend input and output. This lets BR viewers see their favorite team score goals faster than viewers of broadcasters using headends of other manufacturers.
