Following the success and wide adoption of the European Digital Video Broadcasting for Terrestrial (DVB-T) standard for digital terrestrial television, numerous coordinated research efforts on digital broadcast technology resulted in the recent standardization of Digital Video Broadcasting for Handeld Devices (DVB-H). The new specification aims at defining the physical and link-layer level of a digital broadcast network for Internet protocol (IP) datacasting services. At its core, DVB-H is based on DVB-T but it is more oriented in mobile and stationary reception by handheld devices. This article attempts a brief though thorough overview of the new technology, its technical aspects, and its new application perspectives.
