Across the Andean Region the Digital Television (DTT)is already in motion. While most of countries in South America have adopted the Brazilian adaptation of the Japanese DTT standard ISDB-Tb, Colombia selected the second-generation Europan DTT standard DVB-T2, generating unique and completely new coexistence broadcasting scenarios, Firstly, it is the first region in the word in which DVB-T2 and ISDB-Tb coexist. Additionally, DVB-T2 have to coexist with analogue TV NTSC transmissions until the analogue switch-off. This paper provides interference protection ratios based on laboratory measurements and performs coexistence studies in realistic scenarios to illustrate the importance of assessing the protection ratios to achieve an efficient spectrum usage.
