Final presentation: DVB-S2 Satellite Experiment


The final presentation of the ARTES 5 DVB-S2 satellite experiment activity was held on October 19th. Prime contractor EADS Astrium participated along with the subcontractors Telesat Canada, Fraunhofer Institute HHI and an interested audience composed of ESA personnel and representation from Industry and Standardization groups formed by Eutelsat, RAI, Newtec and the chairman of the DVB-S2 standardization group.

Different questions on the test campaigns results and interesting debates on the commercial application of the combination of VCM&SVC technologies were sustained.
