Hispasat future bright#dvbw13


How will satellites deal with the increasing demand for higher quality video and the connected TV trend?  Jordi Bosom from Hispasat gave the view of a satellite operator.   

 This is really an exciting time for satellite operators, with ever increasing demand for capacity, and with the DVB project coming along like a good fairy with technology that will enable existing satellite transponder to increase the data ‘throughput’.  There are several paths being worked on in the DVB Project, one which is compatible,  and another, which will give a larger increase,  and which will not be compatible. 

 I was  astounded to hear that given low error correction, the DVB-Sx (the new system) could have a capacity even more than 170Mbit/s for a 36MHz transponder.   This puts even Super-Hi-Vision well in its grasp. 

 Hispasat have ambitious plans to develop their services for the Iberian world, and hope to move in a significant way into HbbTV.  

 All in all, a pretty attractive market situation?
