BZD 40, a DVB-T/-T2 Antenna by Kathrein Is a Test Winner at ‘Stiftung Warentest’

The BZD 40 outdoor antenna for the reception of digital terrestrial TV and radio pro-grammes has been awarded as a test winner by Stiftung Warentest, a German con-sumer testing organisation. With a total verdict of 1.3 (very good), the antenna came out one of the best of all products.

The BZD 40 is designed to receive DVB-T and DVB-T2 channels and can be polarised both horizontally and vertically. No special alignment is required, because the antenna has virtually omni-directional characteristics. It has an integrated amplifier and is fed remotely (5 V/30 mA) via the coaxial cable through the connected DVB-T/-T2 receiver, or, alternatively, via the power supply unit NCF 18 and the remote feed diplexer WFS 28.

“We are very pleased with the test result. It confirms the top quality of our products,” says Michael Auer, Head of Satellite Reception Solutions at Kathrein.
