Dolby Digital Plus for Turkish DVB-T2

Turkey’s Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK), together with the Turkish Standards Institution (TSE), have published its minimum specifications for DVB-T2 receivers, identifying Dolby Digital Plus as a required element for both HD and SD functionality.

“We’re delighted to see the inclusion of Dolby Digital Plus in the Turkish DVB-T2 standard. It demonstrates the Turkish government’s drive to provide a first-class experience for all consumers and a high-efficiency solution for broadcasters,” said Fritz Deininger, regional director, Central Europe, Dolby Laboratories.

“The adoption of the DVB-T2 standards for SD and HD broadcasts in Turkey ensures efficient use of limited spectrum. This plays a key role in transforming digital broadcasting in Turkey, and we look forward to working closely with broadcasters to deliver improved services across the region.”

The Turkish Radio and Television Corporation is testing TRT HD in Ankara-Dikmen on UHF channel 31, reports.
