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.

    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?

    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.

    Spain is an increasingly dynamic OTT market, where competition intensified in 2019. While Netflix has enjoyed significant success, there have been many new service launches: from the pan-regional launch of YouTube Premium, to US-based virtual pay TV offer Fubo TV, to mobile-focused online TV service Huawei Video, to the sports streaming service DAZN that launched in Spain in early 2019. Many players and much to play for!

    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.
