DVB Formally Support VVC and AVS3 up to 8K
The DVB, which develops international technical standards for broadcast and streamed media, has approved a new specification that covers the use of the VVC and AVS3 codecs in DVB delivery systems including terrestrial, satellite, cable, IPTV and DVB-DASH. The new specification will be formally standardized by ETSI. This development is an expected, but necessary, step in the evolution of video delivery methods that can support 8K with optimized codecs.
DVB also published new ‘blue books’ setting out the commercial requirements for the next generation of codecs. DVB issues commercial requirements before using those to select and develop the technical solutions to meet those requirements.
