NEC deploys DVB-T2 transmitters for ArqivaNEC Corporation has deployed its first DVB-T2 digital terrestrial TV broadcast transmitters.

The transmitters will allow Arqiva and the BBC to launch the world’s first DVB-T2 digital terrestrial broadcast service from December 2, 2009.

They are part of the planned upgrade of an existing BBC multiplex to the new DVT-T2 standard, which will provide the increased capacity necessary to support HD transmissions via digital terrestrial TV.

Arqiva is also busy with the Project Kangaroo technology it acquired after the planned service was blocked by the Competition Commission.

The company recently announced that it has secured BBC content for SeeSaw, the online TV service based on Project Kangaroo, and has appointed Video Initiatives as the ad sales partner.
