Date: Tomorrow, Wednesday December 11th, 9am CET and 5pm CET.

Axon’s series of webinars looking stepping through broadcasting in IP from the very beginnings has been working up through the topics and now comes to managing redundancy within an IP architecture.

Led by Peter Schut, CTO of Axon, he looks at SMPTE ST 2022-7 which is the standard method of seamless switching allowing redundancy in the paths and the streams. But, of course, there are many other ways of creating redundant IP systems including managing redundancy at the network level as well as the device level.

Webinar: DVB-I service discovery and programme metadata

DVB-I is an initiative to develop technical standards for television to be delivered over IP, whether over-the-top or over the internet. DVB-I works with DVB-T (terrestrial), DVB-S (satellite) and DVB-C (cable) broadcast standards so accessing services feels the same whichever delivery channel is used.

DVB-I makes the best use of the different capabilities of each channel:
– People who don’t have broadcast television can still receive services
– Devices that don’t include DVB tuners can still receive services
– New services are possible which wouldn’t be possible on conventional broadcast platforms

There are many separate ways of achieving a hybrid of OTT-delivered and broadcast-delivered content, but they are not necessarily interoperable. DVB aims to solve the interoperability issue, along with the problem of service discovery with DVB-I. As the internet is global, also DVB-I will allow global distribution of programming, whilst still honouring licensing agreements and regulatory requirements.

This webinar from DVB will cover what DVB-I is, the key use cases, it’s current status and the future timeline. The webinar will also look at service discovery, service lists and end by discussing programme metadata.

You can look at the current approved DVB-I standard here.

No need to register! Just go to the link after 12:45 GMT on Wednesday 4th December.
