While we are trying to put in operation the DTT platform, some other TV platforms in Slovenia are developing quickly:

  • Rapid growth of IPTV penetration
  • Introduction of DTH platform which competes for the same audience as DTT (in rural areas)

Penetration of different

TV platforms in Slovenia.

by GFK Slovenia

dtt what was our goal
DTT - what was our goal?
  • To implement new TV formats (16/9, HDTV)
  • Decision on MPEG-4 as future oriented solution
  • By determining MPEG-4 for the obligatory AVC standard, Slovenia decided both for more efficient use of spectrum and for more diverse choice of high quality TV services (+new services and HDTV)
    • At the beginning more SD

channels (to compete with

other broadcasting platforms)

    • Later to implement more HDTV


    • To reduce the costs of

broadcasting networks

DTT network is not reasonable

  • Official DTT launch in Slovenia?

Ljubljana, 29.8.2008 - POP TV in Kanal A sta danes podpisala pogodbo z

Oddajniki in zvezami RTV SLO za vključitev svojih televizijskih

programov v 1. nacionalni digitalni multipleks.

Oba televizijska programa bosta tako na podlagi ustreznih dovoljenj

(APEKA -Agencije za pošto in elektronske komunikacije) in podpisane

pogodbe vključena v mulitipleks s 1. septembrom 2008 in poleg analogne

mreže oddajala tudi v digitalni obliki.

PRO PLUS, ki ustvarja televizijska programa POP TV in Kanal A, z

vključitvijo programov v multipleks tako izpolnjuje Zakon o digitalni

radiodifuziji, ki določa, da najkasneje do začetka leta 2011 ugasnemo

vse analogne televizijske oddajnike.

Več o digitalnem oddajanju-prednostih, namenu, pokritosti s

televizijskim signalom, kaj potrebujemo za sprejem, pa si posamezniki

dTV programme tender

Competing programmes:

The results of the tender:

* Existing linceses

local television
Local Television
  • Local channels in DTT
    • Digital broadcasting act provide automatic conversion of analogue coverage rights into digital
    • Frequencies for local networks are being prepared
    • No need to use programme tender if the coverage is not extended
dtt awareness
DTT awareness
  • Public awareness still very low
  • MPEG-4 STB still not present enough in electronic shop chains
  • 4% STB penetration
  • Manufacturers of STB and IRD claimed: MPEG-4 is a standard for HDTV
  • In SLO the MPEG4 SD STB specification was adopted without HDTV option while HDTV will follow successful MPEG-4 SD introduction
  • Some manufacturers decided to develop only integrated digital TV sets which people will use for many years so the question was raised: will those iTV sets work properly when SLO broadcasters introduces HDTV?
  • Broadcasters are not promoting DTT even if they have reached higher coverage with DVB-T network
set top box situation
Set top box situation
  • MPEG-4 = HDTV
  • We decided to prepare MPEG-4 STB specification
  • SLO to use existing standard E-book and EICTA views on HD extension of the any receiver which complies with that will be O.K.
  • But there are specifications beyond EICTA proposal (France and Scandinavia)
  • SLO decided to specify the SLO specification of HD MPEG-4 STBs (published 4.11.2008)

Lep pozdrav vsem na forumu.

Zakaj pa so sploh testirali sprejemnike, če se potem v trgovinah pojavijo neki drugi ki sploh niso bli testirani ?
