The DVB specification for TTML-based subtitling systems, approved in July 2017, has now been complemented by a revision of the existing specification for bitmap subtitles, creating a comprehensive suite of subtitling specifications from DVB. This webinar will provide an overview of both specifications.


Those following the webinar will have an opportunity to post questions to the presenters via a chat interface.
