DVB Webinars are designed to inform the wider community about significant new or revised DVB specifications. Past webinars are listed below and available on our YouTube Channel. Download the related slide decks below.
Next Generation Audio in DVB (March 2019)
The Audio Video Coding (AVC) experts of DVB have been working to introduce Next Generation Audio (NGA) to the DVB specifications over a number of years. This webinar marked the publication of the latest version of TS 101 154, DVB’s guidelines for the use of video and audio coding in broadcast and broadband applications, incorporating NGA.
DVB-SIS (July 2018)
DVB-SIS (Single Illumination System) enables the combination of DVB-T/T2 contribution and DVB-S/S2/S2X distribution in a single satellite beam.
DVB-DASH (June 2018)
DVB-DASH, for the delivery of TV content via HTTP adaptive streaming, provides a profile of features defined in the MPEG DASH specification. The latest revision of DVB-DASH, published by ETSI in March 2018, adds features related to UHD.
Subtitling Systems (January 2018)
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 provides an overview of both specifications.
Smart TV Security (May 2017)
In response to the risk of smart televisions being manipulated via the broadband interface – via so-called man-in-the-middle attacks – TS 102 809 enables broadcasters to add authentication information to the signalling of their interactive services. The television receiver learns the legitimate transmission on each channel and will then identify and reject any subsequent tampering. This provides an extra layer of defence for TV sets and their owners in addition to manufacturers' activities to improve their product's security.
UHD in TS 101 154 (January 2017)
DVB updated its audio-visual coding specification, TS 101 154, adding support for High Dynamic Range (HDR), High Frame Rates (HFR) and Next Generation Audio (NGA).
