The Slovak national transmission company Towercom is likely to begin DVB-T2 commercial broadcasting next year.

Zive reports that this is later than the company had originally planned.

Quoting Michal Suran, Towercom’s marketing manager, it adds that the transition will be gradual rather than undertaken in a single leap.

Towercom operates all the national multiplexes in Slovakia and initially planned to switch the fourth one to DVB-T2.

The company now expects to use different formats on the multiplex, namely HEVC and MPEG-4, or all MPEG-4 or HEVC.

Its response will be based on market conditions.
