DVB will showcase its role in unifying the delivery of media across all networks and devices, through two multi-partner demos, focused on DVB-I and DVB Native IP.

DVB-I. Better than broadcast. Better than broadband.

Combining the power of broadcast with the flexibility of broadband.

  • Optimize the usage of all available delivery networks, reducing cost and complexity, while streamlining the transition to fully hybrid distribution
  • Fast-track the launch of enhanced and personalized services like immersive audio, higher resolutions, targeted advertising, accessibility features, and more
  • Reach a wider range of connected devices while maintaining compatibility with legacy receivers and ensuring prominence for public services

The demo

Two TV sets with native DVB-I clients will be shown, along with several portable devices. One of the sets will show services from a dedicated DVB@IBC2022 service list, while the other will showcase the newly launched German DVB-I Pilot.

Partners: Ateme, Dolby, DTG Testing, Eutelsat, Qualcomm, Rai, rbb, TP Vision, Vestel

It’s streaming. It’s broadcast. It’s Native IP.

Enabling standards-based OTT delivery on DVB broadcast networks.

  • Create new business opportunities using existing infrastructure
  • Deliver broadcast quality to all devices, even in low-connectivity areas and mobility contexts
  • Reduce cost and complexity of media distribution with a single converged platform
  • Simplify content personalization, e.g. targeted ad insertion, regionalization, etc.
  • Improve sustainability by eliminating duplicated streaming sessions

The demo

Two live satellite feeds are received on native IP gateways serving a range of receivers, with or without internet connectivity.

One feed uses DVB-S2X transmission with generic stream encapsulation (DVB-GSE) to carry multicast ABR streams. At the DVB-NIP gateway, the streams are converted back to unicast to feed IP-enabled devices with typical OTT formats.

A second feed, over DVB-S2, uses multi-protocol encapsulation (DVB-MPE) instead of DVB-GSE, to leverage legacy devices and enable a smoother transition phase. This is an optional backwards-compatible mode in DVB-NIP.

Partners: Broadpeak, EasyBroadcast, EKT, ENENSYS Technologies, Eutelsat, Quadrille Ingénierie, SES, ST Engineering iDirect
