According to the latest research of Dataxis, DVB-T2, the second generation digital terrestrial television standard in Europe, will gain important influence in the next few years. The system can better compress the digital TV broadcasting signal.
In the recent deployment of Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), DVB-T2 has become a widely used standard and has replaced the original DVB-T standard in many countries. Although the spectrum released can be used for broadcasting ultra-high definition content or other channels, some European countries still doubt the necessity of this upgrade.
Application of European DTT standards (by country)
In 2017, 12 countries still used hybrid networks, using DVB-T and T2 standards on different channels. According to Dataxis, this number will be reduced to 8 by 2022. In Belgium, Sweden and other countries, the authorities have not ignored the issue of standard conversion.
Therefore, Dataxis predicts that DVB-T2 coverage in Europe will continue to grow. In 2017, 30% of households can use DVB-T2 standard to receive digital terrestrial TV, which will increase to 72% by 2022.
Proportion of households using DVB-T and T2
This growth is mainly due to the standard conversion promoted by Italy, Spain and other countries.
For the remaining countries, the question remains whether the investment in DVB-T2 is worth it. These countries have realized the deployment of high-definition digital terrestrial television through the conversion from MPEG 2 to MPEG 4.
Ratio of free (FTA)/paid (PTV) DVB-T/T2 households
In addition, the growth of coverage is mainly driven by free TV (FTA), which is still the main viewing mode of 91% of digital terrestrial TV households. DVB-T2 will also be widely used in pay TV. In some countries, standard conversion has eliminated some free digital terrestrial TV.
