Track:

DVB-S2 over the past decade has become a workhorse of the satellite industry for distribution and contribution links. Can a good standard can be made better. The answer is a clear "yes" when it comes to professional transmission via satellite and for consumer applications like DTH. The DVB Project has concluded that the DVB-S2 specification also can be extended to include links with low SNR such as for mobile reception. The increased efficiency of DVB-S2 is needed by new applications like 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) transmission. Combining a more efficient satellite transmission scheme with the new video coding scheme HEVC and the new UHD video format will enable new opportunities for the satellite industry. Other relevant aspects are SNG links, video contribution, and non-broadcast applications like data transmission. How will this wide range of applications benefit from the new specifications? What new services will arise? Will UHD be the next HD?
