Rohde & Schwarz wins DVB-T2 transmission contract in Egypt

Egypt’s ENMA selected an advanced system solution from Rohde & Schwarz for DVB-T2 terrestrial transmission contract that will be installed at nine sites across the country to provide DVB-T2 coverage. The contract comes with strict timescales and all equipment will be installed and commissioned by mid-June 2019

“ENMA is planning to cover Egypt with DVB-T2 transmission and the current project will cover part of our plan” commented Mrs. Mervat Hassan, Chairman of Broadcast Engineering Sector at ENMA. “This project is very important for us and we are looking forward to cooperating with Rohde & Schwarz to execute this project on the timeline as scheduled. ENMA is looking forward to Rohde & Schwarz support in the next two phases also”.

An important consideration for ENMA was the measures that Rohde & Schwarz can employ to assure the Quality of Service (QoS) that the broadcaster can provide to its viewing audience. To this end, each transmitter site will employ R&S PRISMON base multi viewers, which are configured to monitor and analyze eight SD and one HD television channels. Also, the system will include five R&S ETL TV analyzers – a universal reference receiver which will be configured for DVB-T2 measurement together with power sensors.

“This is an ambitious project and will position ENMA as a leading broadcast service provider in the North Africa region,” commented Rommer Balanon, Bid Manager at Rohde & Schwarz Middle East & Africa. “We are delighted that ENMA has selected Rohde & Schwarz as their technology partner and we look forward to a busy period ahead.”
