Recently the WorldDMB Forum adopted a technical specification that endorses the use of Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), a more efficient audio coding algorithm than the MPEG Layer II system originally specified for DAB.
Various aspects relating to the deployment of multimedia services via DVB-H and T-DMB networks are discussed. This 2009 update contains a new section on the estimation of investment costs of DVB-H and T-DMB networks.
This Supplement to EBU Tech 3285 specifies a new <dbmd> chunk that allows the BWF to carry information to support audio metadata associated with Dolby technologies, such as Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus.
The Task Force on Timing & Synchronization examined future requirements for synchronizing systems and for time labelling. This "RFS" is a collection of recommendations, concepts and insights that the SMPTE is requested to use as a guideline for its standardization efforts.
This is the first of a series of specifications of metadata applications, which use, profile and possibly extend the P_META Semantic Metadata Schema (Tech 3295v2.1).

The goal of this technical report document is to provide appropriate information to those who plan to digitize their sound archives.
RF64 is intended to meet the requirements for multichannel sound in broadcasting and audio archiving. It is based on the Microsoft RIFF/WAVE format and Wave Format Extensible for multichannel parameters. The 2009 update adds a 'r64m' marker chunk.
This document concerns the cascading of different HDTV studio compression algorithms and it is intended to inform EBU members in their strategic decisions concerning the introduction of HDTV in their TV production environments. Supplement 1 to BPNs 076-081 describes the test plan followed.
This document is intended to assist technical managers and experts in EBU members in their strategic decisions concerning the introduction of HDTV in their television production environments. This is version 2 of the test plan supplement for BPNs 076 - 081.
This document concerns the SCIENTIFIC ATLANTA D9054 broadcast encoder, a commercially available broadcast encoder for H.264/AVC. Please note this revision, with corrected graphs.
This document concerns the Thomson VIBE EM3000 broadcast encoder, one of the commercially available broadcast encoders for the new H.264/AVC video compression algorithm that has been adopted by DVB in 2005 for distribution, in addition to MPEG-2.
This document concerns the Tandberg EN8090 broadcast encoder, one of the commercially available broadcast encoders for the new H.264/AVC video compression algorithm that has been adopted by DVB in 2005 for distribution, in addition to MPEG-2
This document evaluates the current spectrum use by FM Radio in Band II and considers technologies and transition scenarios to digital audio broadcasting in the Band. Implications for existing receivers are also addressed.
