New Research Says DVB-S2 Standard Will Spur Satellite Broadband
Northern Sky, an Orlando-based satellite consulting and research firm, released a new report that predicts a receptive market response to DVB-S2, the satellite broadcast and communication industry’s second-generation digital modulation standard. The DVB-S2 standard is designed to promote development of interoperable technology and services internationally to help meet the needs of satellite broadcasting and broadband service providers. The new standard is intended to become the successor to DVB-S, the existing standard for the equipment market. The report also projects sales of DVB-S equipment will reach an estimated $450 million this year, with professional systems and broadcast applications accounting for 45 percent of the total.
