DVB to Make the Case for Standards-Based OTT at 2019 NAB Show

At the 2019 NAB Show, DVB, an industry consortium that develops open interoperable technical specifications for the delivery of digital media, will demonstrate how it is enabling an open standards-based approach to OTT and broadband television, as well as Low Latency DASH (LL-DASH) and Multicast Adaptive Bit Rate (mABR) for video streaming applications.

This marks the first time DVB has exhibited at the NAB Show since 2010.

“Broadcast TV works. It just works. You turn it on, and it’s there. It works because of open standards and the reliable, robust delivery methods at the heart of broadcasting,” said Peter MacAvock, Chair of DVB. “We believe that OTT should work just as well, if not better. If you agree, then come and talk to us at the NAB Show about how we can collaborate on standards to ensure TV continues to work flawlessly, even when it’s not always on a TV.”

At the 2019 NAB Show, DVB Will Highlight the Following:

New DVB-I Specifications Ensure High QoS, Robust Delivery, and Interoperability for OTT
At the 2019 NAB Show, DVB will showcase DVB-I, a new suite of specifications that will make OTT delivery just as user-friendly and robust as classical delivery solutions (e.g., DVB-S/C/T and IPTV). Taking advantage of the internet as a distribution platform, DVB-I will bring the best features of broadcast TV into the world of broadband delivery, including integrated channel lists, interactive content guides, and simple lean-back channel selection. As a standardized solution, DVB-I will provide significant advantages related to scalability and cost savings.

Low Latency DASH and mABR Improve Video Streaming Experiences

Also highlighted at the 2019 NAB Show will be Low Latency DASH (LL-DASH) and Multicast Adaptive Bit Rate (mABR), standards that are currently under development by DVB. LL-DASH will ensure that the zapping experience for OTT channels is the equivalent to broadcast, while mABR will allow broadcasters and network operators to work together to optimize IP-based delivery to large numbers of receivers simultaneously.
