Following the major announcements from CableLabs and Echostar on the take-up of MHP in the US, Digital Video Broadcasting Project (DVB) are set to showcase the DVB-MHP specification during this year's NAB, booth L22506.
Also featured will be a series of demonstrations in advancements in interactive/enhanced television and Internet services from Canal+ Technologies, Sofia Digital, Sony, Strategy & Technology and Tao Group.
The demos will include MHP applications highlighting various information and entertainment services. Visitors will also get to see an MHP integrated digital television and other technology demonstrations emphasising the power of MHP.
The HiTop DTV portable receiver will be on show as well as the low-cost Pace Digital Terrestrial Adapter that converts the ordinary analogue television into a DTV receiver.
DVB personnel will be on hand to answer questions concerning MHP and other DVB specifications.
DVB are an industry-led consortium of over 300 broadcasters, manufacturers, network operators, software developers, regulatory bodies and others in over 35 countries committed to designing global standards for the delivery of digital television and data services.
The DVB standards cover all aspects of digital television from transmission through interfacing, conditional access and interactivity for digital video, audio and data. The consortium came together in 1993 to create unity in the march towards global standardisation, interoperability and future proofing.
