IBC2023: This Technical Paper explains how, during the FIFA World Cup 2022, every match during the tournament was broadcasted using backward compatible improvements from the TV 2.5 Project and live streamed using preliminary specifications for the TV 3.0 Project.
In 2016, the Sistema Brasileiro de Televisão Digital (SBTVD) Forum decided to update the current digital terrestrial television (DTT) system, using a two-step approach: extending the life span of the existing DTT system through a backward-compatible evolution (TV 2.5 Project) and starting the development of the next-generation DTT system (TV 3.0 Project). While the deployment of TV 2.5 started in 2020, the TV 3.0 standard will be finalized in 2024 and is expected to launch in 2025.
During the FIFA World Cup 2022, SBTVD Forum members and partner companies tested and demonstrated some of the technologies of Projects TV 2.5 and TV 3.0. Every match of the tournament, from 20 November to 18 December 2022, was broadcasted using backward compatible improvements from the TV 2.5 Project and live streamed using preliminary specifications for the TV 3.0 Project. Both showcases represent a significant technological step towards a better viewing experience for digital terrestrial television in Brazil.
