The BBC are currently running the first proper live tests of DVB-T2 from a real transmitter
(using BBC designed modulators and demodulators) in Guildford.

It is carrying 3x11Mbs H.264 1080/50i HD video streams (using a new Thompson encoder -
and delivering higher quality video than the 16.5Mbs BBC HD on DSat...)
in a 36Mbs DVB-T2 mux (32k carriers and 256QAM rather than 2k/8k carriers and 16/64QAM as
used by DVB-T)


its clear we need DVB-T2 ASAP or we in the UK cant see this T2 when
it soon moves off the limited Guildford transmitter and on to the
UK winterhill /NW transmitters later this year.
