  • The commercial prospects for digital video broadcasting

    The evolution of video compression systems giving a picture quality at data rates of 2 Mbit/s at least as good as that received on the average domestic PAL television set or played back from a video recorder, created great interest and provided a strong market drive for broadcasters to implement a complete direct-to-home (DTH) satellite programme delivery infrastructure having a capacity in excess of 100 channels from a single satellite. For such a system, leading to a mass market of receivers for the public, standardisation of the technical specification was essential. This task was taken up by the digital video broadcasting (DVB) project in 1993 and the main standardisation work for satellite and cable delivery systems completed in 1994, with the result that DTH satellite receivers have just started mass production. The most important aspect in the evolution of DVB has been that it was market-led by the application to satellite delivery. The DVB project, however, has recognised the importance of also formulating the technical standards for cable delivery, for terrestrial delivery and for MMDS.

  • A New Pilot-Aided Integer Frequency Offset Estimation Method for Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) Systems

    In this paper, a new integer frequency offset estimation method is proposed for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM)-based digital video broadcasting (DVB) systems. Several pilot-aided frequency offset estimation methods have been proposed for OFDM-based DVB systems. In the conventional methods, however, the information of some combinations that pilots provide is used only. Thus, in this paper, we propose a new integer frequency offset estimation method exploiting the information of all combinations that pilots provide. The simulation results show that the proposed method outperforms the conventional method in terms of the probability of integer frequency offset estimation failure.

  • Advanced video encapsulation formats for DVB-H broadcasting

    DVB-Handheld is the new adaptation of the successful Digital Video Broadcasting standard for terrestrial environments (DVB-T) that allows audiovisual content reception with compatible mobile terminals. Although many aspects of the standard were fixed during its definition [1], the final election on the video data encapsulation was left to the broadcasters. Nowadays most DVB-H terminals (including a growing number of adapted mobile phones and PDAs) are designed to provide basic compatibility with AVC/H.264 [2] raw streams over Realtime Transport Protocol (RTP) [3] and other encapsulation methods of the video are left for specific laboratory models. The use of encapsulation standards brings several advantages like in-depth multiplexing of several audio and video streams on the same channel, addition of live interactive information, easy inclusion of subtitles, additional error protection, etc. Since a lot of encapsulation standards have been released in the past years, and each one of them has its own characteristics to suit different technical environments, the election between them is not obvious. In this paper we shall analyze the exiting standards on encapsulation and develop several test (real, with a complete DVB-H platform, and simulated, with a PC based programmable environment) to achieve conclusions on which encapsulation format is more suitable to be used in DVB-H broadcasting so its adoption by the consumer electronics market and mobile terminals manufacturers can be achieved with the lowest cost assumptions.

  • eWU-TV: User-Centric Energy-Efficient Digital TV Broadcast Over Wi-Fi Networks

    This paper presents an innovative multifaceted architecture, named energy- efficient framework for DTV broadcast over Wi-Fi networks (eWU-TV), that provides an energy efficient, user-centric, adaptive digital television (DTV) broadcast over Wi-Fi. To cater to the varied properties of the user equipments (UEs), the proposed framework broadcasts DTV content in the form of scalable video coded content that is adapted to suit the subscribers' requirements. The user-centricity is in terms of UE device display size, user preferences for video quality profile based on device energy saving, and UE transmission technology support (DVB-T/H or Wi-Fi). Mathematical models on device battery discharge, quality of experience, and user preference are devised that closely approximate the results of device battery discharge experiments on DTV reception by heterogeneous devices over Wi-Fi/DVB-T, subjective video quality assessment study, and statistical survey of user preference. The proposed eWU- TV performance optimization framework is based on the developed models. The framework ensures that the adaptive scalable broadcast reception via Wi-Fi serves more number of users with higher quality of user experience and with provisions for significant device energy saving.

  • Implementation of enhanced services provided by digital video broadcasting

    The digital video broadcast (DVB) transport stream, consisting of multiplexed audio, video and data, also provides important program and system information. We aim to use this data to develop an application that can demultiplex, decode and record particular television programs specified by the user. This application, content sensitive digital video recorder (DVR), records a particular program whenever it is broadcasted despite the time of the broadcast. Therefore, even if the time of broadcast changes, the set-top-box can be programmed to use program specific information provided in the transport stream and provides a means of recording based on content rather than time. Our application is based on the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) standards, which help to uniquely identify a TV program and its source within the MPEG-2 syntax [(2000), (1996), (2001)].

  • DVB-The Family of International Standards for Digital Video Broadcasting

    This paper presents an overview of the fields of technology addressed by technical specifications created by the DVB Project (DVB). It serves as an introduction to the section of the special issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE in which a number of very recent DVB technologies will be explained in detail. The overview starts with an explanation of the wide field of application which the members of the DVB Project decided to address over the years. It then discusses the base band processing required for DVB services and looks into the specifications provided for the broadcasting over cable, satellite, and terrestrial transmitters. The concept of broadcasting generic data is explained and the interaction channels supported by DVB will be introduced. Multimedia Home Platform (MHP) facilitates a horizontal market of receivers able to run software programs (applications in DVB terminology)in a well defined way. After a short introduction into the specifications addressing the delivery of broadcast-type content over broad-band IP networks,the concept of broadcasting to handheld devices is introduced. The paper closes with a description of the newest areas of development DVB has decided to tackle.
