In the session at CABSAT 2013 titled: Gearing Up For Qatar World Cup 2022 : What Did Broadcasters Learn From London 2012?, to be presented on Wednesday 13 March, Thomas Van den Driessche, VP Market Strategy, Newtec, reviews the London Olympics to establish what will be needed to prepare networks to broadcast the upcoming sport content like the FIFA World Cup in Qatar efficiently and reliably to make it a global television landmark.

“Today the continued drive for more content, multi-service networks, and user expectations for higher quality content (3DTV, HD and UHDTV) especially for sports content, really challenges the bandwidth limitations on satellite. Therefore the trend to more advanced and intelligent networks can be seen in the industry”, said Thomas Van den Driessche, VP Market Strategy at Newtec.

Van den Driessche added: “The need for more capacity has woken up the industry, and initiated the development of new and higher-efficient satellite transmission technology, which can increase the efficiency (DVB-S2 extensions) and measures to reduce radio frequency interferences (new DVB-Carrier ID on board of the Newtec M6100; announcement at CABSAT).”
