VDL Monitoring Products provide supervision for the New DAB+ Network in Hong Kong
VDL (Lyon, France) have supplied ensemble and SFN monitoring products to system integrator, BTL - Broadcast Technology Ltd. (Hong Kong), who were awarded the contract to build Hong Kong’s DAB+ transmission network.

VDL supplied a number of Single Frequency Network Synchronisation Monitors (DAB Monitor SFN) that continually measure the offset timing of each transmitter in order to maintain integrity of coverage.

VDL also supplied an off-air Ensemble Logger and Monitor (DABSTOR-Rx) that captures ETI files and, also, allows the network manager to play the audio and view, DLS text and Slideshows from all 18 DAB+ services simultaneously in real-time.

BTL also used a number of VDL ETI Splitters in the DAB+ Multiplex distribution network to transmission sites.

The Hong Kong Government issued DAB+ licences to three commercial operators - DBC HK, Metro Broadcast and Phoenix U, and the public broadcaster RTHK. Broadcasting of 18 channels in DAB+ began on a 24 hour basis in November 2011.
