Welcome to the webpage of the Chair of RTVE in UPM
The Chair of RTVE in UPM consolidates a long trajectory of collaboration between Radio Televisión Española (RTVE) and the Visual Telecommunication Application Group (Grupo de Aplicación de Telecomunicaciones Visuales) of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Both entities have participated together in projects and initiatives for the last 10 years, such as the promotion of the Digital Television during the DTT deployment, innovating trials of High Definition signal or the launch of interactive services and Hybrid TV. Because of this intense cooperation, both entities decided to create a stable collaboration framework in 2014 with the following objectives:
- To promote the development of audiovisual technologies in Spain together with the industry. In particular, new types of signal such as Ultra High Definition (UHD), new mechanisms of signal encoding (HEVC), new mechanisms of signal broadcasting with 5G networks for contribution signal, DVB-T2 broadcasting to optimise the efficient use of the spectrum, etc.
- To encourage technological vocations in future university students and to contribute to improve the quality of educational activities at ETSIT-UPM.
The creation agreement of the Chair of RTVE in UPM was signed on 15th January 2015.
