If there are approximately ten or more bursted services in a DVB-H stream, the rate of the power saving for the front end could be up to 90%.DVB-H is a technical system which was carefully tested by the DVB-H Validation Task Force in the course of 2004 (see ETSI Technical Report TR 102 401).
Each burst may contain up to two megabits of data (including parity bits).
There are 64 parity bits for each 191 data bits, protected by Reed-Solomon codes.
DVB-IPDC is a set of systems layer specifications originally designed for use with the DVB-H physical layer, but that will ultimately be used as a higher layer for all DVB mobile TV systems, including DVB-SH, and indeed as a higher layer for any other IP capable system.
In short, with regard to mobile TV, these specifications define what is delivered, how it is delivered, how it is described, and how it is protected.
They cover system architecture, use cases, DVB PSI/SI signalling, electronic service guide (ESG), content delivery protocols (CDP), and service purchase and protection (SPP).
Almost all of these have now been published as formal ETSI standards.DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcasting - Handheld) is one of three prevalent mobile TV formats.It is a technical specification for bringing broadcast services to mobile handsets.The front end of the receiver switches on only for the time interval when the data burst of a selected service is on air.Within this short period of time a high data rate is received which can be stored in a buffer.The full set of DVB-IPDC specifications is available from
