A Tutorial Presentation on the new DVB-S2 standard for satellite broadband communications will be given at ESTEC on December 8. The new standard brings several improvements as well as many new features when compared to the previous version.
While DVB-S targeted mainly broadcast applications, the second generation of the standard can support broadcast, interactive, as well as professional and SNG services.
