DVB completes Technical Study Mission on Internet TV

Date: 2009-12-11

The Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) project carried out an extensive technical study mission in the area of content delivery technologies over the Internet. The study mission, lead by Nomor Research CEO Dr. Thomas Stockhammer on behalf of our partner LG Electronics, did a market survey to which many companies, both DVB members and non- members, responded with details about their technical solutions in the area of content delivery networks (CDNs), peer-to-peer (P2P) systems and unicast adaptive streaming solutions. The study mission concluded its activity in September 2009 from which a set of recommendations were proposed for DVB work in the area of Internet-TV content delivery. A public version of the study mission report is available as DVB bluebook A145 on the DVB website and an overview of the work is provided in the latest issue of the DVB scene.
