DVB-T2 is a digital terrestrial transmission specification developed by the DVB Project. It is the most advanced such specification in the world and introduces the latest modulation and coding (and demodulation and decoding) techniques to enable highly efficient use of valuable terrestrial spectrum for the delivery of audio, video and data services to fixed, portable and mobile devices. DVB-T2 is not designed to replace DVB-T; rather the two standards will coexist in many markets for many years. Much of the intellectual property essential to the DVB-S2 standard is also essential to the DVB-T2 standard.
In 2007, a study mission of the DVB Project identified some possible technologies which could be considered as alternatives for improving the existing DVB-C standard. The 57th meeting of the DVB Steering Board has now approved the DVB-C2 Commercial Requirements and a Call for Technologies for DVB-C2. IPR essential to DVB-S2 is likely to be incorporated into the DVB-C2 standard.
