Licensing programmes covering DVB standards DVB-S2, DVB-SIS and DVB-CSA have been updated.
DVB member Sisvel, which manages patent licensing programmes for several DVB standards, has announced it’s completed the transfer of the licensing programme for DVB-S2 essential patents. The company is working with DVB-S2 patent owners on the terms of a relaunched patent pool, that will include facilitated licensing of DVB-S2X patents as well.
In March, Sisvel announced the availability of a licensing programme covering the recent DVB standard, DVB-SIS (Single Illumination System), which covers the use of a satellite beam for both DTH and terrestrial networks.
Sisvel has also completed the transfer from ETSI of the licensing framework covering DVB’s Common Scrambling Algorithm, CSA2 and CSA3.
