DVB, an industry consortium that develops open, interoperable technical specifications for the delivery of digital media and broadcast services, today announced that it will host DVB DEMOS 2020, an all-day online event on Thursday, 26 November, bringing the industry together to witness the future of media delivery. Fifteen different exhibitors will participate in the event, showcasing products and services based on the latest generation of internet-centric specifications from DVB, comprising DVB-I (including DVB-DASH), DVB-MABR and DVB-TA.
"In recent years, DVB’s focus has shifted to addressing the challenge of fragmentation in IP-based media delivery technologies," said Emily Dubs, head of technology at DVB. "DVB DEMOS is the first time we’ll bring together such a broad cross-section of vendors, all using our next-gen specifications. The aim is to showcase how hybrid and broadband delivery can benefit from the reliability and robustness that defined the success of digital television while opening up new possibilities for innovative services."
Live Stream of Technology Demos, Followed by One-on-One Meetings With Vendors
DVB DEMOS will kick off with a live stream featuring a series of short technology demonstrations, viewable on the DVB DEMOS 2020 web page and on DVB’s YouTube channel. Attendees also have the opportunity to book appointments for more in-depth demos and discussions in private online meeting rooms. Exhibitors will include ATEME, Broadpeak, Dolby, DTVKit, ENENSYS Technologies, Google, Harmonic, Kineton, OnScreen Publishing, OTT Broadcast, Sofia Digital, TPV Technology, Unified Streaming, Verance and Viaccess-Orca.
DVB DEMOS will show how DVB-I serves as a common media layer across a variety of delivery channels, providing end users with a seamless experience. Another key highlight will be how DVB-DASH and DVB-MABR enable scalable low-latency streaming on par with broadcast services. The first solutions based on DVB-TA will also be exhibited, showing how targeted advertising opens the door to new revenue streams for broadcasters. Additionally, attendees will get a firsthand look at how broadcast services can be easily integrated within IP-based platforms.
Many of the demos will bring into play collaboration between the exhibitors, illustrating the interoperability that is a cornerstone of DVB’s approach. Different combinations of streams, service lists, clients and players will be highlighted to show how a standards-based ecosystem increases the possibilities for innovation.
DVB DEMOS 2020 is free to attend. Registration is required to join the afternoon session and to book appointments with exhibitors.
