Sony Commercializes World's First*1 Demodulator LSI For "DVB-C2"*2 Digital Cable TV Broadcast Standard
*1: Based on Sony research (as of September, 2011)
*2: DVB-C2: Second generation digital cable TV broadcast standard "ETSI EN302 769".
This is the improved version of the first generation DVB-C standard.
Digital audio and video signals are transmitted using orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) digital modulation.
Adopting 1024/4096QAM and LDPC forward error correction scheme improves the transmission efficiency by approximately 60% compared with DVB-C.

Sony Commercializes World's First*1 Demodulator LSI for "DVB-T2"*2
*1: Based on Sony research (as of January, 2010)
*2: Second generation terrestrial digital broadcast standard "ETSI EN302 755".
This is the improved version of the first generation "DVB-T".
Digital sound and video signals are transmitted using orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) digital modulation.
Using a time interleaver and LDPC code (a kind of error correction system) improves the transmission efficiency by approximately 50% compared with "DVB-T".
