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.
