ORS to begin DVB-T2 next year
16 May 11 -

Austrian transmission services provider ORS has unveiled plans to roll out a DVB-T2 network from 2012, beginning in urban areas in the country. The country’s digital switchover process is set to be completed by June 7 this year.

Technical director Norbert Grill said the rollout of DVB-T2 would have no impact on existing DVB-T viewers. He said the group envisaged that the terrestrial network’s share of the market would increase from 12-15% as a result of network expansion.

ORS also plans to boost its satellite services offer and expand its activities in other markets in central and eastern Europe.
