Pablo Angueira, University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU)
Dr. Pablo Angueira, Associate Professor at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), began his career in television as a doctoral candidate student to the Department of Communication Engineering at the Spain’s University of the Basque Country.
“I worked on the evaluation and network planning aspects of the DVB-T standard, participating to one of the first SFN (single frequency network) field trials, held in 1997 in Madrid (Spain). During those years I worked in different projects related to video and audio broadcast (DVB-T, DAB) and in 2002, after earning my doctorate, I also started my teaching career at the UPV/EHU, where I am currently an associate professor,” Angueira explains.
Over the past 15 years, Angueira has been involved in numerous broadcast-related research projects, sending his team across the globe with tests in Mexico, Brazil, India, Spain, Germany and Italy. From 2003 to 2009, he worked on DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) digital radio system development and testing in different frequency bands.
After spending seven years in the radio world, Angueira returned to television working on the DVB-T2, DVB-T2 Lite and DVB-NGH projects. During this period, Angueira has worked in cooperation with CRC Canada and ETRI Korea on ATSC efforts (specifically on the ATSC 3.0 standard development process.)
UPV/EHU and the ATSC
The UPV/EHU research team is currently involved in the technical subgroups under the umbrella of TG3-S32, where the physical layer technologies to be used in the future of ATSC 3.0 standard are being studied. Specifically, the UPV/EHU research team works on the LDM (Layered Division Multiplexing) in close cooperation with CRC and ETRI.
Additionally, Angueira and his team have engaged the University in a number of standardization organizations around the world such as the ITU-R (International Telecommunications Union-Radiocommunication Sector), DVB, DRM and contributes regularly to others such as the EBU (European Broadcasting Union).
“These organizations, and specifically ATSC, provide an excellent opportunity to learn from industry. At the same time, they are an outstanding meeting place to share and transfer our knowledge and developments to the industry.”
“The worldwide scope of the ATSC has become even more relevant: contributors from all parts of the world are working together towards the most advanced digital television standard. The fact of sharing this objective with the leading broadcast industry and research institutions and be part of the process is really important for our university,” Angueira says.
Mountain Biking and Fine Food
Outside the lab, Angueira enjoys participating in outdoor sports with his wife and daughter. The whole family is active in mountain biking and trekking the forests of the Basque Country. Additionally, the Angueira family enjoys gastronomy, especially when cooking and eating with friends on the weekends.
