Turkey - Details of Trials - History


As well as the trials mentioned above, TRT had plans to broadcast MPEG-4 video over DAB.


TRT has planned to distribute the DAB ETI signal via the existing MCPC DVB-S infrastructure. After the installation of the 1kw transmitter and the transmission of the DAB ETI signal, TRT DAB signals will reach approximately 8 million listeners.

TRT has also bought equipment for broadcast streaming services and is ready to develop new services based on IP, one of the more powerful and attractive multimedia features of DAB. The equipment is able to carry out several IP services on the same platform. The IP services may be broadcast in one or more N-PAD channel. With such a product, MPEG 4 video can be broadcast over DAB, allowing to enhance the audio with rich services (web pages, video clips, electronic program guide, vote, purchase tickets services) or added radio services (cartoons, news files, games, city information) or real time streaming (video, file downloading).
TRT plans to broadcast MPEG-4 video over DAB in the near future. For this application, new software and MPEG-4 Video Encoder which is capable of IP encapsulation will be added.
