Welcome to DVB World 2020
Based on her work with ruwido and her research on usability and user experience, Regina will share insights on how media consumption is changing and how user groups can be classified not only by looking at age or income, but by taking into account their values and how they impact their media behaviour. There is a steady but continuous evolution towards a user-driven consumption environment.
Video broadcast has been through several breakthrough transformations. After having been digitalized, adapted to IP carriage (IPTV) and enriched through broadband access (HbbTV), it now has to support new user habits and the associated terminals. Multicast ABR – mABR –specifies how to carry the Adaptive Bit Rate video formats and protocols over a broadcast/multicast feed allowing the support of those terminals. After an overview of the mABR architecture, we will look at different deployment cases and the potential evolutions.

Multicast ABR opens the door to a new DVB era
Roberta is new to the DVB community and brings broad experience across broadcast, streaming and compression technologies. She will bring fresh perspectives to our review panel looking back at DVB World 2020.
What we liked, learned and lacked at DVB World 2020
Julian, well known across the industry for his work with our official media partner Broadband TV News, will once again be the master of ceremonies for DVB World 2020, introducing the presentations, moderating questions and leading some of the panel sessions.
Drawing on more than a decade of experience with IP and CDN strategies at telcos, Mark will outline the current state of play and the challenges that telcos have in the online video distribution landscape, its disruptors and its challengers. He will also paint a picture of role he believes the telcos will play in the future of online video distribution and the challenges they are likely to face in the coming years.
Video distribution & telcos: Who’s winning? Who’s losing? Who’s changing the game?
Martin is a member of DVB's Steering Board and an active contributor to the Promotion & Communications Module too. He will share his valuable insights on our review panel looking back at DVB World 2020.
As new generation broadcast standards continuously evolve, the older technologies are not always replaced but rather complemented. Keeping the old technology – and even converting new standards back to older standards – is actually enabling the introduction of new standards in many cases. Can DVB do more to reduce the challenges of conversion to aid the introduction of new DVB standards?
DVB's Commercial & Technical Modules: the past year and the year ahead
There has been a huge growth in interest in Esports, matched by equally impressive growth in investment. As an area of entertainment that attracts much sought-after youth audiences, it's not surprising that media companies have been paying close attention. But does Esports represent a threat or an opportunity for broadcasters?
5G was initially conceived with a focus on mobile network operators' objectives and models, but this versatile technology can be optimized for other use cases, including for media-centric ones. DVB is looking into several potential synergies, whether to make DVB services available on 5G-connected devices, perhaps with DVB-I as a service layer, or to use 5G connectivity to enhance existing DVB services.
ATSC 3.0 is the latest “next gen” digital terrestrial broadcast (DTB) standard, following in the footsteps of DVB-T2, and possibly paving the way for additional next gen DTB standards development in Japan and China. These state-of-the-art DTB systems enable next gen TV and other emerging business sectors through convergence with internet and LTE/5G systems. This presentation will offer an overview of ATSC 3.0 and explore the role of next gen broadcast technologies in the changing data delivery landscape.
Codecs, standards and UHD formats: where is the industry headed?
5G will boost wireless video traffic to an astonishing 75 GB per user and per month in 2028 (Ovum). This presentation will examine how satellite and 5G can cooperate to cope with this growth and how 3GPP is currently looking at this challenge.
The first DVB-T services to launch, in the late 90s and early 2000s, were mostly concentrated in Europe. These platforms became well-established and remain important for digital television delivery across the continent. Most have now sought to benefit from the increased capacity and efficiency offered by DVB-T2 in combination with more advanced video codecs. Kenneth will provide an overview of the transition, for which several contrasting approaches have been adopted.
