Commercial Module

The Commercial Module is the key distinguishing organisational element of the DVB Project. CM is where the commercial issues around a DVB work item are discussed, with the consensus embodied in a set of "Commercial Requirements" governing each and every DVB specification.

DVB's success is underpinned by a market-led approach driven by the CM. This ensures that technical work is completed to a set of functional requirements, cost targets and deadlines.

The group first produces commercial requirements, and then validates each technical specification against these commercial requirements before passing it for final approval to the DVB's executive board - the Steering Board.

DVB Workplan

The deliverables and timelines for the creation of DVB specification are set out in the DVB Workplan, which is updated regularly. The latest version can be found under OUR WORK.
