Techopedia explains Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB)
Both the DVB and the ATSC represent a group of electronics and telecom companies that help to set up agreed standards for visual broadcasting through digital technology. DVB is the product of the DVB Project, which involved several hundred companies along with other parties like regulators and broadcasters. Various groups participated in the pan-European adoption of DVB standards in order to have a consistent standard for new digital video technologies and consumer or commercial services.
DVB standards cover many aspects of digital video and are implemented in different ways according to the broadcast medium and other factors. It’s worth noting that some of the standards are developed by drawing on pre-existing ISO/EIC standards. Some aspects of DVB are patented according to their general use and value.
