Rohde & Schwarz is bringing the latest technologies in television and radio broadcasting to CABSAT 2024. Alongside delivering the latest in audience-grabbing and revenue-building services, Rohde & Schwarz will show how innovative designs are delivering unprecedented efficiency for transmitters, making great strides in sustainability.

For broadcasters seeking to cut carbon emissions while increasing reliability and resilience, the R&S®TH1 is a radical new approach to high-powered transmission. The new design delivers energy efficiency at least 15% better than the best of current transmitters, and its liquid cooling further reduces power demand in air conditioning. Its sustainability is matched by the flexibility of its software architecture, making it the ideal platform for new services and revenue streams.

It is the perfect platform to incorporate 5G Broadcast, the remarkable new standard for content to large numbers of concurrent users on mobile devices, without taking up cellular bandwidth. Apart from broadcast and pop-up video services, it is also an ideal choice for multicast data delivery to IoT applications, potentially offering valuable new services from an existing transmitter network.

Radio broadcasters are drawn to DAB+ for its clarity of sound, the potential for large numbers of stations, and extremely stable operation. Rohde & Schwarz has been building highly efficient transmitters across the complete power range for 75 years, and its latest models with optimized efficiency provide the lowest cost of ownership available.

“The Middle East is a vibrant market for us, and CABSAT is a great opportunity for us to connect with the key businesses in the region,” said Maha Chrabie, Sales Director of Broadcast and Distribution for Middle East and Africa at Rohde & Schwarz. “Digital terrestrial transmission is a key talking point this year: while internet streaming continues to advance, there is no doubt that digital terrestrial transmission has huge advantages in efficiency and reach, as well as enabling new broadcast applications at a reduced cost for a better-connected world.”

Rohde & Schwarz is exhibiting at CABSAT 2024 as part of the Bavarian Pavilion, stand S1-J30a. For more information on broadcast transmission and media products, go to
