DVB to highlight DVB-T2 Lite

The DVB will highlight for the first time progress made in the DVB-T2 Lite profile. T2 Lite is a new subset of DVB-T2, which pares down DVB-T2 parameter settings for what is required for mobile/portable reception.

This chosen subset allows the reduction of the complexity of T2 Lite-specific receiver chips by 50%, resulting in lower receiver costs. In addition, T2 Lite can be combined with transmissions based on the already existing DVB-T2 specification.

The IBC demo will show this feature by combining in one RF channel a high data rate channel optimised for roof top reception with a low data rate channel optimised for mobile reception. Additional demonstrations for the DVB-C2 and DVB-GEM specifications will highlight new applications that go beyond the usual delivery of one-way television services.

A TV with an integrated DVB-C2 tuner will be shown running a VOD service as well as receiving a DVB-C2 broadcast. Furthermore, there will be a DVB-GEM based hybrid broadband broadcast demo where, in parallel to broadcast reception, a second video channel is delivered over the open internet.

The DVB will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 1.D81
