NorDig releases DVB-T2 specification

NorDig has specified the minimum requirements for receivers that can receive NorDig compliant signals based on the DVB-T2 specification.

The terrestrial broadcast networks in the Nordic region are all served by DVB-T based broadcasts.

Analogue broadcasts have already been shut off in most of the region (all of Finland and Sweden, as well as most of Norway).

NorDig said that in some of the Nordic countries, introduction of HDTV and MPEG-4 AVC may be combined with the introduction of transmissions based on DVB-T2. A migration from DVB-T to DVB-T2 is being considered in the other countries.
