Bibel TV HD launched


On 1 December 2013 German TV broadcaster Bibel TV launched an HD version of its channel that is available in most parts of Europe via satellite (DVB-S) and free-to-air. The technical implementation was realized by HMS.

Two redundantly operating DISA playout servers complement the DiSA broadcast automation that is already used by Bibel TV since 2008. The broadcast management of the HD program is located at the HMS Playout Center in Vienna (ORS). Program planning is still done at the Bibel TV office in Hamburg.

By broadcasting via satellite Bibel TV can reach up to 20 million households in the German-speaking areas of Europe.

Bibel TV HD broadcasts in 1920x1080i and can be received on DVB-S-capable devices with the following settings :

  • Satellite: Astra 19.2° East
  • Frequency : 11244 MHz
  • Polarization : horizontal
  • Symbol rate : 22,000
  • Error correction : FEC 5/6
