The DTT trial currently being undertaken by the Polski Operator Telewizyny (POT) consortium in Poland is likely to come to an end at the end of this month. Local reports indicate that the consortium, which is composed of the country’s two national commercial TV stations Polsat and TVN, is asking the Office of Electronic Communication (UKE) for an extension for the trial, which only began on May 31. Rather than grant such an extension, the regulator may instead give permission for a second trial, though for a maximum of six months rather than the year POT would prefer. The DTT trial is being undertaken in Warsaw and Srem near Poznan, distributing Polsat, TVN and the regional station TV4 and employing both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 compression. It expects to also undertake tests in DVB-H and HD 1080i.
