The article explains how DVB-S2 standard can save bandwidth from satellite transponders. DVB stands for digital video broadcasting, while S is for satellite and 2 for the version number of the standard. DVB-S2 is an improvement in forward error correction, leading to the improvement in modulation. DVB-S2 tends to move in step with MPEG-4 compression.
