At IBC2019 in Amsterdam, DVB, an industry consortium that develops open interoperable technical specifications for the delivery of digital media and broadcast services, will present a demonstration of linear TV services using the DVB-I solution, which relies on Internet-based access and streaming mechanisms alongside traditional broadcasting techniques.
"As we approach the deployment stage for DVB-I, IBC is a great opportunity to showcase its readiness to enable the kind of reliable and user-friendly experience we associate with watching TV, but in situations where a broadcast connection may not be available," said Peter MacAvock, chairman of DVB.
At IBC2019, several DVB members will collaborate on the DVB-I demonstration, built from the related specifications. The demo will include broadband- and broadcast-delivered linear TV services using HTTP-based access and streaming mechanisms. It is intended to showcase key elements such as a DVB-I Service List, DVB-DASH streaming with the recently released low-latency mode, and Multicast Adaptive Bit Rate support for network optimization.
DVB member demo partners will include ATEME, Broadpeak, ENENSYS Technologies, Harmonic, ITV, Kineton, Newtec, RAI, Rohde & Schwarz, SES, TPV Technology, and Viaccess-Orca.
