The CTIA Wireless Association has published the results of a field study that verified two television stations can in fact broadcast their content in a single slice of spectrum. The test was kicked off earlier this year in Los Angeles, where two TV stations agreed to perform the trial. The stations tested sending a variety of HD and SD streams and determined that they could send two HD and two SD streams through one channel without affecting the quality of their content. This was made possible by the use of the most modern compression techniques. The findings are significant because the Federal Communications Commission hopes to convince TV stations to give up their spectrum in a reverse auction planned for next year. The spectrum will in turn be sold to wireless network operators and used for mobile broadband.
