Three years after Love Productions marched Bake Off from BBC One to Channel 4, history is repeating itself with Avalon's Taskmaster, which is unlikely to return to UKTV's Dave and will likely land on Channel 4 or the BBC, all of which begs the question is this the new normal for prize formats Manori Ravindran investigates.

Digital Terrestrial TV Requirements for Interoperability

The D-Book has continued to support the developments of products and services with the introduction of Single Frequency Network support for the migration of COM 78 T2 multiplexes into the 700 MHz band, defining the profile of UHD to be supported in compatible receivers for broadcast and bringing the HbbTV requirements up to date with recent work by the HbbTV Association and DVB. The DTT platform is always evolving and this means removing requirements that are no longer required. Ian chairs a number of industry groups within the DTG, including the Technical Oversight Group which oversees all technical activities within the DTG. Ian started his career as a Test Software Engineer at aviation firm Smiths Industries before spending three years at Pioneer's Digital Design Centre creating test and verification software for a variety of MPEG-1, MPEG-2 video, VSB, and QAM silicon designs. - dtg.org.uk
