DVB-NIP is a new specification of the DVB group for satellite and terrestrial TV broadcasting based entirely on IP without using the MPEG-2 Transport Stream layer. The demonstration at BES India successfully used a DVB-T2 transmitter site at Pitampura to receive live DVB-NIP signal with no internet connection and served OTT and VOD content to receivers. It proved how DVB-NIP can be useful for reaching a vast population of mobile devices in areas with limited or no broadband connectivity.

The demonstration was a great success and captured interest of visitors. Praveen Jaga, MAINDATA’s representative for India supported the demo on site and spoke with visitors about MAINDATA’s plans for DVB-NIP support in products as well as our solutions for satellite to TV towers delivery such as SFN Boost and Dynamic Broadcast and other MAINDATA products like IP Encapsulator and MEDIACAST.
