Published by Rohde and Schwarz

Munich, March 19, 2010 — Rohde & Schwarz and GMIT, both specialists for mobile TV, will strengthen their collaboration in the future. The objective is to give customers access to compatible solutions across the entire product portfolio of the two companies. "Both companies have similar ideas of how mobile TV will develop in the future. It therefore makes sense to cooperate more closely and to learn from each other in certain areas," says Juergen Nies, Head of the Broadcasting Division at Rohde & Schwarz. Stephan Skrodzki, CEO of GMIT GmbH, agrees: "We are very pleased to have Rohde & Schwarz as our partner. After all, we share a common vision of high-quality, reliable solutions for digital TV." Both companies are convinced that mobile TV will establish itself in Europe in the future. ATSC-M/H networks for mobile TV are currently being set up in the USA, where the standard was officially adopted in fall 2009.

Rohde & Schwarz, the Munich-based broadcast expert, offers network operators a comprehensive product portfolio – from T&M equipment to infrastructure – for setting up broadcast networks for mobile and stationary reception of different global standards, including ATSC-M/H in America and DVB-H in Europe. GMIT GmbH, located in Berlin, supplies components that are in regular operation worldwide on a number of DVB-H platforms.
