Why DVB World?

DVB World is an annual conference focused on media delivery and distribution using DVB standards, services and technology. It presents timely sessions on emerging issues, teasing out the choices that lie before the industry.


With around 200 delegates from around the world representing broadcasters, service providers, manufacturers, policymakers and researchers, it’s a rare opportunity to access authoritative analysis and informed discussion rather than the commercial pitches that dominate other events. All this, and an excellent environment for networking too!

Along with countless other events, the uncertainty regarding international travel makes it very difficult to plan the next edition of the conference. Join our mailing list to be the first to know when the next DVB World is announced.

DVB World – key topics
Cash cow seeks new pastures!

DVB's broadcasting standards serve as the cash cow for the industry, but can they deliver even more in the years ahead?

DVB-I: now and next

How can you take full advantage of DVB-I,  which promises to make broadband delivery of  linear audiovisual content as user-friendly as classical broadcast?

Delivering TV online

How do DVB-DASH, CMAF and other streaming standards come together in a viable ecosystem for broadband-delivered linear television?

UHD formats & codecs

What are the technologies and standards that have got UHD to where it is and what do we need to reach the next level?

5G: all aboard?

There's plenty of hype around 5G, but where and when should the broadcast industry be paying most attention?
