Since IRT was founded, we have been developing new technologies for distributing broadcast content. Our top priority concerns the transmission of analogue and digital radio & television programmes – including programme-associated data services – via terrestrial transmitters, cable and satellite.
IRT employees also focus on transmitter technology, transmission measurements, antenna technology, and issues of compatibility between various broadcasting services and non-broadcasting services.
Growing media diversity is placing an ever greater strain on terrestrial broadcast frequencies. Since there is a limited number of frequencies, however, it is a considerable challenge to locate and secure frequencies for existing and future broadcasting applications. For these reasons, core tasks at IRT’s Frequency Management include efficiently maintaining frequency resources and ensuring optimum broadcasting services.
IRT specialists possess a wealth of expertise on frequency planning and transmitter-network planning, analogue broadcasting systems (AM, FM, PAL, SECAM) and digital broadcasting systems (DRM, DAB, DVB-T, DMB, DVB-H). And on account of IRT’s participation at all major international broadcasting conferences as well as involvement on national and international committees (ITU, CEPT, EBU), our experts also have years of experience with frequency planning and transmitter-network planning – both in Germany and abroad. All in all, IRT supplies comprehensive and ideal support on all issues concerning frequency management, frequency planning and transmitter-network planning for broadcasting systems.
