Hildesheim / Kortrijk – Even on long journeys there will be no chance of boredom setting in. Bosch is turning the passenger cabin into an entertainment center and is bringing high-definition (HD) TV reception to the coach. Passengers can watch their favorite series or a movie in crystal-clear picture quality, just as they would on their home TV. And they will never miss a sports match simply because they are traveling. Bosch is presenting its new DVB-T2 Tuner for mobile applications at Busworld Kortrijk 2017, which is taking place in Belgium from October 20 to 25, 2017. As one of the world’s first tuners for automotive use it brings HD picture quality and more television channels to Europe’s roads. The tuner will make in-coach entertainment even more appealing. The new tuner will enter volume production in the spring of 2018.

Wide range of programs in crystal-clear quality

The new DVB-T2 Tuner makes it possible for passengers to enjoy HD-quality television broadcast according to the H.265 standard. This new technology ensures the picture is not only significantly sharper, it also enables reception of digitally broadcast TV programs in the whole of Europe. Equipped with a total of four antennas, the tuner automatically searches for the strongest signal and ensures interference-free reception. Encrypted entertainment programs are decoded by the integrated CI interface. In addition, the USB port makes it possible to play movies and music on the coach monitors from a USB device. For even more infotainment, up to two additional sources can be connected, such as satellite television and a DVD player. The tuner is integrated into the coach’s infotainment management system via the CAN bus and is controlled via CAN Remote. This makes it possible to provide even more in-coach entertainment options.
