The DVB has published two key documents in the development of DVB-T2, the next generation television system for digital terrestrial television, currently under development.
The Commercial Module of the DVB Project has drawn up a set of commercial requirements. The process was handled by a subgroup chaired by Seppo Nieminen of the Finnish transmission company Digita. The commercial requirements were last week approved by a meeting of the DVB steering board and have been published in the form of a DVB Bluebook.
The DVB Technical Module’s TM-T2 group, chaired by the BBC’s Nick Wells, will now set to work on a technical specification that meets the requirements of the TM-T2 subgroup. The DVB has issued a Call for Technologies and is inviting submissions from both DVB member companies and from non-members.
