At this year’s IBC, DVB will demonstrate how the coding efficiency of HEVC can be used to increase the capacity of the DVB-T2 terrestrial platform as well as for the new DVB-S2X satellite standard.
The DVB-S2X demonstration will highlight the new standard that offers spectral efficiency of up to 50% for professional applications. S2X will be implemented with HEVC to deliver 4 UHD signals at a data rate of 100 Mbit/s.
In a second demonstration up to 7 HEVC encoded High Definition channels will be delivered in one multiplex using DVB-T2 in a robust mode suitable for small indoor antennas and portable reception. Both fixed reception and mobile reception will be demonstrated.
As always, DVB standards play a pivotal role in the IBC Conference, including a special DVB session on Saturday September 13th: Advanced transmission techniques for satellite and terrestrial broadcasting
