5G - Unlocking the potential for new broadcast applications

In the past few decades, incredible innovations has taken place in TV transmission. It has evolved from analog transmission to digital broadcasting to satellite delivery with hundreds of channels. TV is now ready for the next challenge: reaching out to billions of smartphones via 5G. 5G broadcast, a technology once associated with mobile connectivity, can transform digital TV into mobile TV. This idea has been around ever since LTE appeared. But it was recently enhanced in 3GPP Release 14 to make delivering mobile TV over the HPHT based networks a reality, effectively addressing the needs of broadcasters, mobile network operators, content providers and end users. At Rohde & Schwarz, we call it FeMBMS, and we are ready to support your mobile TV delivery in the 5G era. The Rohde & Schwarz vision already meets most 5G requirements and is expected to meet them all as it evolves – in compliance with 3GPP Release 16 and beyond.

DAB - reducing operating costs for every network

In countries where DAB+ networks are established, radio transmitter network operators are obliged to operate the DAB+ networks parallel to the existing FM networks. At the same time, the main challenges for network operators nowadays are related to operating costs: costs for ensuring service quality, costs due to the limited lifetime of equipment and penalties for service downtimes. Rising expenses for energy and personnel make this challenge even tougher for them. Reducing these costs is and will remain one of the primary challenges for network operators.

One World Trade Center: Broadcasting is back with Rohde & Schwarz

One World Trade Center is the tallest building in New York City and the most prestigious address for broadcasters in the United States of America. Six out of seven national broadcasters, such as WPXN (ION Media), WNET (PBS), and WWOR (FOX), have chosen to deploy the R&S®THU9evo for their primary broadcasts from One World Trade Center in New York City, but WNJU was the first station to move in.

Rohde und Schwarz - your US repack specialist

Rohde & Schwarz – your US repack specialist

In 2012, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was tasked with repacking the licensed broadcast spectrum to make room for wireless broadband. Now, with auctioning of the spectrum complete, the FCC estimates about 1,200 stations will be affected by the clearing of 84MHz of spectrum – and each of those stations will have a little more than three years to transition to their new channel assignments.

Experts from Rohde & Schwarz are ready to help you plan ahead for the process, keep your transition on track, and turn a longterm investment in RF equipment into new revenue streams for your station.
