 Multicast ABR opens the door to a new DVB era 

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.

 Completing the marriage between video and wireless – why 5G is not enough

 Challenges converting between (DVB) standards – and how the old is enabling the new 

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?

 What can broadcasting learn from Esports? 

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.

 ​What is the 5G opportunity for DVB? 

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.

Many players and much to play for!

 From T to T2 – the early adopters are catching up 

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.
