Elecard Company announced the successful completion of the final stage of testing technologies Information Management System (IMS) at the current layout with the use of a transmitter MARCH. According to forecasts, this system will become the world’s first solution that combines cable networks and digital data network.
Testing was conducted in a live environment in a hybrid DVB-T2 standard using a dozen different set-top boxes and televisions. This stage was preceded by long refinement of technology ISC emulated devices and hybrid Internet-cable environment, as well as training on the current layout using a digital transmitter of the St. Petersburg company "MART" in a hybrid environment in the standards of DVB-T and DVB-T2.
All participants experienced the broadcast zone in Tomsk expressed willingness to work on the project MIS in the future, an innovative design and great prospects of hybrid television in Russia.
At the conclusion of experiments, one of the sponsors Saryan, VK, National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor, Director of Scientific — Educational Center Research Institute of Radio, summarizing and discussing the plans for the future development of the ISC, said: "The experiment which was successfully completed in Tomsk, on the eve of the New Year holiday is, in our opinion, very important for the development of digital television, and not just in our country.
This experiment allowed as a glimpse into the future of digital television — while full convergence of digital TV distribution networks and data networks. For the first time in the world on the basis of the converged network, created widespread mass information and management network (MIUS), which would allow access of any subscriber DTV to a wide range of ICT services.
