Digital switch-over: tackling-in-home distribution
While the launch of Freeview has provided consumers with a wholly free-to-air digital platform, it is currently unclear whether digital terrestrial television in the UK will provide the coverage to 'portable' television sets currently offered by analogue terrestrial. Before digital switch-over can proceed, reception using a set-top antenna must be addressed. Wireless in-home distribution seems a likely candidate for serving portable televisions whereby digital television signals are re-broadcast in-home, enabling additional television sets to continue to source signals without additional wiring. Possible solutions based on peer-to-peer and networked architecture are explored.
