DVB to demo OTT video delivery standards at IBC

July 3, 2019

At IBC2019 in Amsterdam, DVB will demonstrate an open standards-based approach to over-the-top (OTT) and broadband video through its new DVB-I suite of specifications, highlighting support for low latency, enhanced service discovery, and mABR.

"The DVB-I suite of specifications is quickly taking shape and will soon be ready for deployment," said Peter MacAvock, chairman of DVB. "We look forward to demonstrating the exciting capabilities of DVB-I to broadcasters and service providers at IBC2019 and discussing how we can support smooth implementation and flawless OTT services on every screen."

At IBC2019, DVB will present the first showing of DVB-I, a new suite of specifications designed to improve OTT delivery and provide increased scalability and cost savings with the same reliability and ease-of-use as legacy broadcast delivery solutions. DVB-I is designed to enhance the viewer experience for hybrid and broadband TV through features like integrated channel lists, interactive content guides, and lean-back channel selection.

DVB-I will be showcased alongside Low Latency DASH (LL-DASH) and Multicast Adaptive Bit Rate (mABR), forthcoming standards from DVB. LL-DASH, for which the technical specification has been approved, is designed to ensure that the overall delay for live OTT channels is the equivalent to broadcast, while mABR - still in development - is designed to allow broadcasters and network operators to work together to optimize IP-based delivery to a large number of receivers simultaneously.
