ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the regular satellite television test transmissions launched by the company IBA. The transmission has been uplinked, from IBA's engineering headquarters near Winchester, England through D-MAC standard, a reduced bandwidth variant designed for transmission down cable. The transmissions coming from Eutelsat F2, a low-power communications satellite, will reportedly offer several benefits of D-MAC including and scrambling besides eight digital sound channels and data capacity.
