Digital Video Broadcasting and associated standards.
The DVB Digital Video Broadcasting Project was established in 1992 as an international industry-led consortium of broadcasters, manufacturers, network operators, software developers and regulatory bodies committed to designing open global standards for the global delivery of digital television and data services.
Based on MPEG-2, DVB’s main transmission standards include DVB-S for satellite, DVB-C for cable and DVB-T for terrestrial.
Numerous broadcast services using DVB standards are now operational in Europe, North and South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia.
DVB has established international standards for all aspects of interactive TV services through cable, satellite, terrestrial and other delivery media and has produced the Multimedia Home Platform or MHP standard for interactive services.
