Ofcom has published a consultation on proposed changes to its Digital Radio Technical Code and accompanying Guidance Notes.
The proposals would allow for the use of DAB+ on the future "D2" second national commercial multiplex, though this would not be mandatory. The use of DAB+ would initially be limited to 30% of the available capacity.
Ofcom believes competition between services and with other media provides effective self-regulation in matters of sound quality and therefore proposes to remove the minimum bitrate requirement. According to the consultation document, "there is no evidence to suggest dissatisfaction from consumers with the technical quality of content from platforms that are not subject to explicit technical quality standards requirements". Ofcom extrapolates this to mean that there is no need for minimum standards on DAB either.
Ofcom proposes that all DAB/DAB+ broadcasts should use UEP3 or EEP3 as appropriate. Broadcasters may use greater error protection if they wish, but any subsequent reduction in error protection may be subject to consultation. Under Ofcom's proposals, broadcasters would not be permitted to reduce error protection to UEP 4 or 5, but doesn't mention whether services already using those protection levels would be permitted to continue doing so.
Ofcom proposes to dissolve the Memorandum of Understanding that was agreed with broadcasters relating to the introduction of new transmitters. The MoU was designed to ensure that new transmissions did not cause interference to neighbouring ensembles using the same frequency, nor punch unacceptable holes in the coverage of other ensembles in the same area. As the roll-out of DAB continues, more sites will be required and Ofcom proposes a more streamlined approach to the approvals process, details of which are included in an Annex.
Ofcom proposes to advertise the second national commercial multiplex in the second quarter of 2014.
