V, (SR: 29700, FEC: 5/6; Dvb-S2/QPSK).Unfortunately, if someone thinks, the transition to broadcast in HD has better quality channel, we are very disappointed. BFM Business is one of the stations in France, which artificially broadcasts in HD 1440×1080 with a very weak flow velocity from video 2 before 2,5 Mbit/s. On the screen is quite clearly visible artifacts, caused by excessive compression and blurry graphics on the display, that is due to artificial increase the video resolution.
