The DVB Project has commenced a study mission into the technology options available to deliver ‘DVB-type’ content over the internet to consumer electronic devices including gaming consoles, PCs and mobile receivers. Although the study will centre on content delivery, other functionality including codecs, security and metadata is also under consideration.
In order to pull in a wide range of views, the Geneva-based organisation has posted a questionnaire on its website to collect information on technologies, services and solutions. It is open to both members and non-members.
Although not confirmed the DVB may use the information gathered to formulate a standard for internet TV delivery.
