Spectrum Repack: Encoding and Headend
Spectrum repack may actually impact a station's encoding and multiplexing requirements depending on the station's business plans, number of video channels deployed in one RF channel, and the possibility of channel sharing between multiple stations.
- Potential updates if channel sharing after Repack
- Advances in MPEG-2 coding efficiency and next generation statistical multiplexing enables up to 2 1080i HD and four 480i SD streams on air in a single 6 MHz DTV channel
- IP Transport allows use of cutting edge error mitigation and redundancy techniques, while lowering transport costs.
