The DVB Specification for the use of Video and Audio Coding in Broadcast and Broadband Applications provides implementation guidelines for the use of audio-visual coding in satellite, cable and terrestrial broadcasting distribution systems that utilize MPEG-2 Systems. SDTV, HDTV, UHDTV using HEVC coding, Frame Compatible Plano-Stereoscopic 3DTV and Full Resolution HD 3DTV using MVC Stereo are covered. The specification covers the first and second phases of the DVB UHDTV specification, as well as DVB Next Generation Audio specification.
The most recent version also contains H.264/AVC and HEVC video conformance points for use with MPEG DASH. These are aligned with the broadcast conformance points, supporting a similar feature set, but take into account the specific requirements of adaptive bitrate delivery over IP-based networks.
