Free TV and Broadcast Australia will test the digital terrestrial broadcasting standard DVB-T2. The new generation of digital terrestrial television broadcasting standard DVB-T2 can support 4K television reception in the future.
Broadcasters SBS and ABC will also participate in the trial in Sydney. This test will determine whether Australia will upgrade the existing DVB-T standard to be consistent with the United Kingdom, India, New Zealand and Malaysia.
Broadcast Australia (BA) said: "Free terrestrial television provides services for 99% of the population of Australia, and more than 20 million Australians watch TV every week. Once the time is ripe, the terrestrial television platform will be ready to evolve to the next technological stage and provide the best viewing experience as possible. This test is an important part of ensuring the above requirements."
Free TV also said: "This test is a plan for the long-term future. In the past 62 years, from black and white to color, from analog to digital, from standard definition to high-definition, TV broadcasters have proved their ability to make common progress with the times. I am glad to cooperate with BA to ensure that Australians can continue to watch free news, sports and entertainment programs."
The public test will be conducted in Sydney from April to June 2018. Laboratory tests have been carried out in Broadcast Australia's office in Chatswood.
DVB-T2 was first introduced in 2008 and has been adopted by more than 30 national broadcasters.
