ENENSYS takes part in the roll-out of UHD DTT in France with its OneBeam DVB-SIS technology

RENNES — ENENSYS Technologies, leading provider of media delivery solutions, is pleased to announce its participation in the modernization of DTT in France, with the adoption of its OneBeam solution for France Télévisions’ Ultra HD / 4K broadcasting project on French territory.

The ultra-high-definition (UHD) broadcasts of France 2 and France 3 channels offer an unequalled visual and audio experience to millions of viewers. To achieve this, France Télévisions relies on the DVB-T2 standard to broadcast content at very high bitrates to all French households. UHD broadcasting went live on January 23, 2024 for France 2, and France 3 UHD will be broadcast from July 10 for a period of 2 months. The channels will be able to broadcast major sporting events with an experience as close to reality as possible.

The project is based on DVB-SIS (Single Illumination System) technology, an innovative standard to which ENENSYS has made a major contribution and implemented with its OneBeam solution. This technology enables France Télévisions to mutualize satellite links to serve both terrestrial DTT broadcast transmitters and direct-to-home (DTH) satellite reception homes. In this way, the audiovisual group significantly optimizes the satellite transport of its TV streams.

With the ambition of a transition to full UHD in the next few years, the OneBeam solution enables a faster deployment. Indeed, it would only require a single satellite distribution and a single shared head-end to cover the entire French population.

Régis LE ROUX, founder and CEO of ENENSYS Technologies, declared: “We’re delighted to be taking part in the modernization of DTT in France. By distributing high-quality content with UHD, we’re helping to meet consumers’ growing expectations in terms of visual quality. Thanks to our OneBeam solution, already proven internationally for 10 years, we are enabling media groups like France Télévisions to deploy their second-generation infrastructure faster and at lower cost.”
