DVB and the SAT>IP Alliance have signed a collaboration agreement for the development of the SAT>IP specification.

The deal also states that future promotion of the technology will be conducted jointly, allowing the DVB community to contribute to next generation SAT>IP features and services.

Though it was initially designed for satellite over IP transmissions, the SAT>IP technology also supports other broadcast delivery mechanisms such as cable, terrestrial and DVB-S2, DVB-C2 and DVB-T2 to IP.

“The co-operation with the SAT>IP Alliance is an important step for DVB, as it defines a standardised way to bring DVB services to mobile devices in the home. DVB is committed to define and support new versions of SAT>IP, which will bring additional features for the end user,” said Peter Siebert, DVB executive director.

“SAT>IP has developed very successfully and is now supported by over 40 manufacturers with more than 100 compatible products in the marketplace,” added Thomas Wrede, president of the SAT>IP Alliance.

The SAT>IP Alliance currently includes leading satellite operators and manufacturers, such as Eutelsat, Hispasat, Irdeto, Panasonic, NAGRA, MaxLinear, SES, Verimatrix and Zinwell.
