June 29, 2010   More good news for DVB-T2! BBC R&D and the DVB Project have been shortlisted for the IBC 2010 Innovation Award in the Content Delivery category. Other categories include content creation and content management.   The development of a second generation terrestrial broadcasting format created the huge increases in transmission efficiency, ruggedness and flexibility required for the UK Freeview HD services.
