RFS is at the forefront of the industry with broadcast RF products designed to build the broadcast infrastructure of the future. RFS will be discussing its high profile deployments and demonstrating its latest innovation at stand 8.E81.
RFS RFS will be showing its patented Variable Polarization Technology which provides future-proof technology for broadcasters looking to upgrade their infrastructure to meet next-generation broadcasting requirements. RFS’ VPT-powered systems have a number of benefits:
- Essential for shared antenna situations: Allows each broadcaster to set their own polarization ratio. This brings superior signal penetration and coverage, while also enabling broadcasters to reduce infrastructure ownership costs.
- Simplifies the evolution to DVB-T2 standards: Polarization changes can be made with minor adjustments at the transmitter level in the station. This will make it quick and easy for broadcasters to shift from horizontal to the elliptical polarization needed for mobile devices under DVB-T2 when they are ready – and without extra cost or upgrades.
- Advanced transmission: VPT-powered antennas can transmit advanced DVB-T2 modes such as MIMO and MISO, increasing the volume of data that can be sent to a receiving device.
Additionally, RFS will discuss its work beyond Europe as a major player in the world first UHD TV deployment in South Korea. Providing two thirds of the country’s infrastructure for the UHD TV switchover to be completed by 2021, RFS will talk through the challenges of the deployment and the specifics of what is needed to meet the requirements of DVB-T2 in practice.
Mick Bennett, Global Product Manager, Broadcast and Defence at RFS commented, “At RFS we pride ourselves on being a solutions provider rather than a product vendor when it comes to our work in the broadcasting sector. The result is that when we encounter problems, such as interference or the challenges of undertaking world-first deployments, we are in a position to tackle and solve them with our customers. It is this level of service and deep understanding of the industry that keep us and our customers at the forefront of RF broadcasting technology.”
