The DVB Project at Bca2006

Broadcast Asia 2006 (Bca 2006) starts Monday June 19.

At BroadcastAsia look out for DVB, which is focussing on its work with both DVB-H (DVB Handheld Devices) and IPTV technologies.

At both Bca 2006 and sister show, CommunicAsia can see DVB-H in action at the stands of Nokia, ProTelevision Technologies, TeamCast, UDcast and Innoxius Technologies.

DVB is currently emphasising its delivery of transport stream-based, DVB services over IP networks and Asia is a vital player, as pointed out by Peter MacAvock, Executive Director at the DVB Project who says that Asia-Pacific has always embraced the hottest new technologies leading the way with DVB Mobile TV services, and now we see the swift take-up of IPTV. He notes that the focus on DVB-H and IPTV standardisation at BroadcastAsia 2006 is evidence of the DVB Project's continued commitment to the vibrant market in this region.

The worldwide IPTV market is predicted to grow to over 27 million households by the end of the decade, primarily driven by Europe and Asia, with particular China, according to findings from IMS Research.

China alone is expected to become the world's largest national IPTV market, with 3.58m IPTV households by 2010, representing about 13 percent of the total worldwide market.

It is worth noting that the DVB Pavilion at BCA is hosting a number of demonstrations and product showcases for ADB (set top boxes), IKONVERGENZ (production-ready digital DVB-T IPTV and analogue LCD TV solutions to manufacturers for immediate mass production), and UDcast (IP solutions over broadcast media).
