It’s the DVB World conference in Prague next week, which reminds me that it’s just over 20 years since the Digital Video Broadcasting Project was formed in Geneva. Since then, around a billion DVB receivers have been deployed worldwide. The first WWW conference also took place twenty years ago in Geneva. At the time I was dabbling with digital video compression and some of the earliest web servers in the world. Digital television and the web have evolved significantly since, but largely along separate paths that occasionally meet. Their respective networks have as many differences as characteristics in common and the same might be said of those that specialise in these areas. For the last decade, informitv has operated at the intersection of these two worlds, anticipating and advising on a convergence in communications that has largely yet to come. I look forward to the developments of the next decade and indeed the next 20 years.
