DVB-NGH: Next Generation handheld device


What were the 'headlines' from the conference? Near the top would be the first papers about what may be a new generation digital broadcasting system "DVB-NGH". The DVB Project has asked for technology proposals for this which will be evaluated. What is, or may be, revolutionary about DVB-NGH is that it should be a 'universal system' which will allow for radio, television, data and other broadcasts to serve all kinds of receivers, whether handheld or the largest set in the living room.


The DVB-NGH receiver will also be able to do everything else the viewer or listener needs such as smart phones. One receiver for everything - this is the dream. A challenging time lies ahead to realise it.
