Engineering Competition
World League 2017

Better, faster, further! Develop the future of video distribution! Rohde & Schwarz is searching for the champions of signal processing and software optimization worldwide. Build a team of electrical and software engineers. Compete against others and show your expertise.

The participants of the competition will enhance (for the highest performance) the software-based DVB-T2-Coder, based on the open source GNU Radio project. The coder is the basis for an OFDM based digital television system used primarily in Europe.

The main task for you and your team: What modifications will yield the best performance while maintaining the accuracy of the output? Each time that you submit your work, Rohde & Schwarz will review the performance and accuracy of your solution. You can also check the position of your team in a ranking system and compare to the results of other teams.

May the most efficient code win! Your TV signal could change the world of TV. Are you ready to meet the challenge?
