Welsh language broadcaster S4C is launching its Digital Text service on the Freeview platform. The service, developed for the DTT MHEG-5 middleware by emuse absolutely, closely resembles the version already available to satellite viewers.
“Working with S4C always allows us to put our technology to great use,” said Patrick Rainsford, CEO emuse absolutely. “There was a hugely positive response to the interactive services offered for the first time on S4C’s coverage of the 2006 Royal Welsh Show. This latest new service sees S4C delivering offerings to its
audience consistent with those of the biggest broadcasters in the world.”
S4C’s DTT transmissions are restricted to Wales, though satellite viewers can watch the channel across the UK, and into continental Europe.
