DVB-T2 Lite | First Deployments, First Experiences
Next Generation of Digital Radio & Mobile TV

As one of the first in Europe, Open Channel started to broadcast with DVB-T2 in 2010 in Greater Copenhagen, Denmark.

Open Channel again leads the way as the first in the world in 2012 to air the next generation of mobile TV on UHF channel 39 (618 MHz) & digital radio on VHF channel 9D (208,064 MHz), based on the new DVB-T2 profile T2 Lite.

In 2016, Open Channel have begun to test HEVC for reception on portable device. Most mobile hardware from late 2014 onwards supports dedicated HEVC playback, why DVB-T2 or T2 Lite in combination with HEVC provides an efficient new platform for broadcasting SD and HD to mobile device.

New T2 Lite one chip solution has come on the market in 2015 e.g. Sony SMT-EW100 and Siano SMS4430 for mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, automotive infotainment systems, navigation systems and PCs. It boasts the world’s smallest size and superior reception as well as extremely low power consumption, making it an optimal candidate for inclusion into mobile devices.

The first smartphone ASUS ZenFone Go TV (ZB551KL) with Sony's new chip set has just been launched June 2016 in Brasil (ISDB-T), India, Indonesia, Japan (ISDB-T), Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines (ISDB-T), Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand & Vietnam.

DVB-T2 Lite is not only suitable for mobile TV. It is also highly suitable as the future standard of digital radio. At least 40 countries broadcast already digital radio on their DTT network thereof ~20 countries with DVB-T2 | T2 Lite.

Last year launched Parrot their DVB-T2 diversity-4 chip Octopus 3 as Siano SMS4470. This year Parrot launched their brand new worldwide all-in-one high-end radio solution "Octopus 03+" with support for T2 Lite beside FM, DRM+ & DAB+.
