DVB brings live Native IP broadcasting demo to BES India 2023

The DVB Project, with support from several of its Members, will present a live demonstration of Native IP broadcasting at next week’s BES India 2023 exhibition in New Delhi. Visitors to the DVB booth (#60) will see a live terrestrial feed received on a DVB Native IP gateway, serving live OTT and VOD content to a range of receivers without internet connectivity.

BES India 2023 takes place Hall No. 7 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi from 16 to 18 February.

DVB-NIP (native IP broadcasting) defines a protocol stack for satellite and terrestrial television broadcasting entirely based on IP and no longer relying on the MPEG-2 Transport Stream layer. The demo for BES India 2023, which will use the existing DVB-T2 transmitter site at Pitampura, shows how DVB-NIP can be used to leverage DVB infrastructures that are already in place to reach the vast population of mobile devices in India.

The demo is delivered in collaboration with DVB Members EasyBroadcast, EKT, Quadrille Ingénierie and ST Engineering iDirect. Representatives of EasyBroadcast and Quadrille will be present on the booth, along with DVB Head of Technology Emily Dubs.

Conference presentation

Emily Dubs will speak on behalf of the DVB Project during the conference at BES India, in a session on Friday 17 February (09:30–10:45) titled: Next Generation TV Broadcasting. Here presentation is titled How DVB Native IP with DVB-I enables a converged media delivery ecosystem.
