It showcases key elements such as a DVB-I Service List, DVB-DASH streaming with the recently released low-latency mode, and Multicast Adaptive Bit Rate support for network optimization. "As we approach the deployment stage for DVB-I, IBC is a great opportunity to showcase its readiness to enable the kind of reliable and user-friendly experience we associate with watching TV, but in situations where a broadcast connection may not be available," said Peter MacAvock, chair of DVB.

Additionally, DVB specialists will be on hand at the stand 1.B71 to meet one-on-one with visitors regarding a wide range of DVB-related topics. Potential topics include physical layer transmission technologies, DVB-I and streaming solutions, audio and video coding, interactive services, conditional access, and more.

DVB will extend its thought leadership to several IBC2019 conference sessions, providing expert opinions on all things related to DVB. Sessions will include: Peter Siebert, Head of Technology at DVB, will take part in an IET session panel titled "Broadcast to IP Impacts" at the Future Zone Theatre, on Friday 13 Sept., 14:15-15:00. Additionally, Siebert will give a presentation on the DVB specification for high dynamic range at the Ultra HD Forum IBC Masterclass, in the Emerald Room, Saturday 14 Sept., 10:35-10:55.
