DVB Scene 58: video codecs, DVB-I over 5G, terrestrial UHD, and more

You can now download the September 2021 issue of DVB Scene.

The new issue of DVB Scene magazine includes articles covering a wide range of DVB solutions and specifications, from the ongoing work on video codecs, Native IP and DVB-I over 5G, to market developments related to terrestrial UHD and CI Plus.

There’s also a call from BBC’s Jigna Chandaria for a renewed focus on sustainability from the outset of specification development, while DVB chair Peter MacAvock highlights the culture clash that can emerge when companies with roots in the broadcast and CE sector seek common ground with those emerging from the world of the web.

Stuart Savage (LG Electronics) provides an update on DVB’s work to identify how it can usefully support the implementation of the EU’s Audiovisual Media Services Directive.
