Newtec demonstrates the new DVB-S2X standard

A new DVB satellite standard has been published, ushering in a new era of satellite communications, enabling new services and higher transmission efficiency. Newtec will launch DVB-S2X products at NAB 2014 after having its own ‘S2 Extensions’ technology in the field for some time to already improve the existing DVB-S2 standard.

SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium – Satellite communications specialist Newtec has begun real-world demonstrations and testing of the new DVB-S2X standard which was published at the end of February 2014 by the Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) Project.

Open standards and interoperability have been instrumental to the continued success of the satellite industry. After many years of research and development, Newtec teamed up in February 2012 with other DVB-members to define a more efficient successor to DVB-S2. Today the extensions to the DVB-S2 standard are available and named “DVB-S2X”. Newtec products are software upgradeable to DVB-S2X and anticipated to ship as early as Q2 2014.
