Infoblu launches a commercial TPEG service via DAB+ network using the TPEG Playout TPEG ON AIR by bmt. The Managing Director of Infoblu Fabio Pressi explains that the innovative format of TPEG, combined with the wider broadcasting capacity of digital radio, revolutionates the existing traffic service in FM. He continues: “At Infoblu we strive a lot to make our services more and more reliable and innovative through the most modern technologies. This is the reason why we are proud to launch, as first ones in Italy, a service that converts the traditional GPS navigation device into a connected navigation device, with levels of traffic and the road events on more than 100.000 km of streets.”
The average travel time of the streets collected by Infoblu, as well as the indication of potential accidents and traffic bans, become an information directly visible on the map on the on board device. GARMIN is the first producer that will put on the Italian market the GPS qualified to receive the new service.
The EU tender procedure for the tendering of satellite services for the Bavarian local TV stations offers is now running.

ARD, Media Authorities, Media Group RTL Germany, ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG, VPRT and ZDF launch a joint initiative to introduce DVB-T2 HD for terrestrial television. For the communicative support of the transfer to DVB-T2 HD the bmt is commissioned as a project office. The website www.DVB-T2HD.de provides further information. In future the standards DVB-T2 and HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) will be used for the terrestrial television in Germany. With this advanced combination the German TV broadcasters will transmit television in the remaining frequency spectrum for broadcasting. Due to changes made by the federal government the frequency spectrum for DVB-T (terrestrial television) will be reduced.
The General Assembly of ITS Bavaria has chosen Mr Martin Dreher to the Board. Martin Dreher is concerned for over 15 years now within Bayerische Medien Technik with traffic and telematics. He is heavily involved in the standardization of TPEG. He codevelops the product portfolio of bmt and is part of the team of experts to advice car and receiver manufacturers, network operators and broadcasters.
Since April 10th 14 out of 16 bavarian local TV stations are receivable via IPTV (ENTERTAIN). The bmt has organized contribution, processing of SI/EPG-data as well as contract management within its commission of the Bayerische Landeszentrale für neue Medien (BLM). The last two missing programs will follow later.
