Sisvel becomes the administrator for the DVB-S2 patent pool
None Torinese, April 30, 2020
The family of DVB programs administered by Sisvel keeps growing, thanks to the addition of the DVB-S2 patent pool.
The program previously managed by S2 Licensing, is now part of Sisvel’s license offerings related to the video technology field.
The DVB-S2 patent pool offers a fair, reasonable, non-discriminatory access to patents owned by AT&T Intellectual Property, LLC, RAI – Radiotelevisione Italiana S.p.A. and The European Space Agency (ESA) that have been determined to be essential for implementing DVB-S2, the digital satellite transmission system standard as defined in ETSI EN 302 307 part 1.

“We are glad to have the DVB-S2 patent pool among our licensing programs” said Davide Ferri, CEO of Sisvel Spa and Sisvel Technology. “Together with the DVB-S2X pool, Sisvel can now act as the reference point for this technology in the market, making the patents under DVB-S2 and the DVB-S2X standard (ETSI 302 307 Part 1 and 2 respectively) more easily accessible for the benefit of both licensors and licensees”.
DVB-S2 is the "second generation" modulation and channel coding system developed by the DVB Project as a successor for the DVB-S system, covering a variety of applications by satellite such as broadcast services, interactive services, TV contribution and data content distribution. It makes use of advanced modulation and coding techniques to deliver performance that approaches the theoretical limit (Shannon) of a communication channel. It was published as ETSI EN 302 307 in 2005, and it is now defined as Part 1, with Part 2 being the DVB-S2X standard.
