This webinar provides an overview of the new specification for Service Discovery and Programme Metadata for DVB-I Services.

The DVB-I specification was recently approved by the DVB Steering Board and is available as DVB BlueBook A177.

DVB-I aims to ensure that linear television delivered over the internet is as user-friendly and robust as a traditional broadcast television experience. It offers the possibility for linear television services to be delivered to any device with a suitable internet connection and media player, including TV sets, smartphones, tablets and media streaming devices.
