THE DTG’S D-BOOK 10 DEFINES LATEST UK TV REQUIREMENTS
The DTG’s D-Book 10 is the industry determined, next generation, universally deployed specification which supports future interactive services and enables the continuing transition towards HbbTV.
Where D-Book 9 introduced HbbTV references for Freeview Play at the MHEG to HbbTV transition which included the introduction of support for HEVC and HDR for IP delivered services, D-Book 10 continues to support the development of HD products and services with the introduction of Single Frequency Network (SFN) support for the migration of COM 7&8 T2 multiplexes into the 700 MHz band. An IP Software Upgrade Option has been included in response to the requirements of manufacturers handling software upgrades to today’s complex TVs, avoiding the need for SSU Broadcast updates.
