The Polish public broadcaster TVP will begin a 4K DVB-T2 trial on Friday, July 3.

Its main aims will be to test the compatibility of consumer DVB-T2 4K receivers employing HEVC; to test the emission quality of different parameters of transmission and reception of 4K signals; to measure and optimise the technical parameters of broadcasting in DVB-T2 in order to maximise technical reach; and from July 20 to compare the broadcast quality if 4K signals through different distribution channels, namely the web, TVP hybrid platform and mobile apps.

The trial will last until the end of the month, with reception only being possible in the Warsaw area.
