Agilent becomes member of DVB consortium

MUMBAI: Agilent Technologies has announced that it has joined the DVB Consortium and WorldDMB Forum, two broadcasting organisations.

The DVB Consortium creates technical standards for digital television and data services delivery, while the WorldDMB Forum promotes the Eureka 147 digital radio standard.

Membership in these organisations allows Agilent to provide test and measurement solutions for digital video and audio that are more closely aligned with broadcasting industry needs.
Agilent’s membership in the DVB Consortium and WorldDMB Forum provides it with direct access to members’ test requirements. As the digital broadcast market evolves, Agilent will use these requirements to create customized broadcast test solutions that are compliant with latest industry specifications and conform to recommended test profiles or test vectors.

By tailoring these solutions to different test scenarios (e.g., product certification and large-scale manufacturing), Agilent will look to deliver flexible product features, high-performance specifications and increased cost savings. 
Agilent currently offers digital broadcast solutions for both transmitter and receiver test. For transmitter test, Agilent provides several X-Series advanced measurement applications that offer one-button, standard-based power and modulation measurements for X-Series signal analyzers (high-end PXA, mid-range MXA, economy-class EXA and low-cost CXA). For receiver test, Agilent provides Signal Studio software to create standards-compliant test signals.
The software works with the ESG or MXG signal generator as a low-cost solution for R&D and manufacturing customers. The solution is ideal for high-end R&D and lab customers when used in conjunction with the PXB baseband generator and channel emulator for full-conformance testing. Both the transmitter and receiver test solutions are based on Agilent’s general purpose platforms that not only support most digital video and audio formats available today, but numerous wireless communications standards as well, making them well suited for testing multi-format devices.
