2001-04-10   Announcement: DVBCC Module, second public release

DVB Caroussel generation software for LinuxTV

DSM-CC (Digital Storage Media - Command and Control) is a very recent ISO/IEC standard developed for the delivery of multimedia broadband services. The MPEG-2 ISO/IEC 13818-1 Standard for encoding/decoding of video streams contains an early version of DSM-CC where a simple stream control protocol for MPEG-2 Transport Streams is introduced.

The DSM-CC standard is used by many broadcasters to transmit software applications to set-top boxes. There is no free implementation of the DSM-CC standard for the client-side available yet. However, for a start you might be interested in the server side.

Oleg Checkulaev from the German research project DVBCC announced:

The second public release of our DVB carousel generation software is available for download at
