Prepared a surprise for a new Ukrainian satellite platform Digital Fly Ukraine. Technical tests coding the signal, which were conducted earlier in the conditional access system Irdeto 2, are carried out in the N.DS VideoGuard. Perhaps it is N.DS VideoGuard will be targeted to the coding system for Digital Fly Ukraine.

Digital Fly Ukraine tested on two satellite transponders Thor 3 (0.8 W). In the coming weeks, the service will be transferred to the satellite Thor 6, which was raised last week. The official launch of the platform is planned for mid-November 2009

The platform uses two transponders that operate in the standard DVB-S2/8PSK. The programs are broadcast in the format MPEG-4 HE AAC audio format.
