  • 1. Report to AGS on IPTV Standardization Shuji Hirakawa IEC Technical Committee 100 (TC 100) Secretary April 23, 2008
  • 2. FG-IPTV and IPTV GSI
    • After the last AGS meeting in October 2007:
      • FG-IPTV met twice and was disbanded
        • 6th meeting in Tokyo, October 2007
        • 7th and last meeting in Malta, December 2007
      • IPTV GSI (Global Standardization Initiative) is established
        • The first meeting was January 2008 in Seoul
        • The second meeting is scheduled from April 25 to May 7, 2008 and several meetings are planned in this year
      • GSI is a set of Joint Rapporteur Groups meetings at the same place and in the same period
  • 3. IRD 2 or STB?
    • CE manufactures are anxious to continue TV receivers with large screen display (Integrated Receiver and Decoder with Display=IRD 2 )
    • Considering the total power consumption of (free to air) TV and IPTV system, IRD 2 may provide lower power consumption than STB solutions.
      • Large screen TVs should have DTV receiver function in the box.
      • Services operators will provide their own non-compatible STBs to the subscribers. ->Many STBs in the home
  • 4. Digital broadcasting case
    • ITU-R developed Recommendations for broadcasting systems and IEC did International Standards of receivers
    • The following table shows an example of digital broadcasting system RECs and their receivers’ International Standards
    IEC IEC ITU-R ITU-R IEC 62002-1, 2 IEC 62455 for IPDC/MPEG-TS IEC 62216-1 IEC 62028 IEC 62028 To be included in IEC 62360 IEC 62360 IEC 62360 BT.1833 Multimedia System H BT.1833 Multimedia System C Mobile (One-Seg./DVB-H) BT.1306 System B BO.1516 System A DVB BT.1306 System C BO.1516 System D ISDB Terrestrial Satellite
  • 5. ITU-T is not the creator of IPTV specifications
    • ITU-T is combining IPTV specifications made by major IPTV SDOs like:
      • DVB-IPTV
      • DSL forum
      • OpenIPTVForum
      • TISPAN of ETSI
      • ATIS
  • 6. EICTA analysis
      • IMS-based IPTV and non-IMS IPTV
    • DVB project
      • DVB-IP, non-IMS
      • IMS-based IPTV and dedicated IPTV
    • ATIS IIF
      • IMS-based IPTV and non-IMS IPTV
      • extension of mobileTV to IPTV, non-IMS based
    • OpenIPTVForum
      • IMS-based IPTV and internet IPTV
  • 7. Recent Nikkei News
    • Recent Japanese Situation
      • NTT and MIC: IPSP for linear TV and VOD
      • Five manufactures and METI: Act-Villa mainly for VOD
    • Nikki Newspaper morning version on April 19, 2008 reported:
      • In June, two groups may reach to the common specification
      • Sony and Panasonic will produce new IPTV common spec compliant IRD 2 s within current fiscal year (until March 2009)
  • 8. Follow DTV cases
    • EICTA is providing DVB receiver specifications to IEC TC 100
    • Likewise, JEITA is also providing ISDB receiver specifications to IEC TC 100
    • We should follow these in case of IPTV receiver specifications.
  • 9. Overlapping foreseen in a year in case of IPTV
    • Unlike digital broadcasting case in ITU-R, management group members of ITU-T Focus Group on IPTV (FG IPTV)/GSI IPTV may have different historical background
      • The members may come mainly from telecom operators and their system and equipment suppliers
      • They may have less experience of working with other international standardization bodies including IEC than ITU-R Broadcasting Group
    • Formerly, telecom operators were controlling their terminal devices that were distributed by themselves
      • Broadcasting receivers have been in consumer domain from the beginning
  • 10. Overlapping foreseen in a year in case of IPTV (Cont.)
    • The specifications of consumer equipment like TV receiver has been standardized in IEC
    • ITU-T FG IPTV Working Group 5 is ‘ End Systems ’ including ‘ Terminal Devices ’ and ‘ Home Network ’
      • Some part of IPTV receivers may be obtained by end-users from retail market (i.e. consumer equipment.)
      • Some part of ‘IPTV Terminal Devices’ are just digital TV receivers.
    • Because IPTV may include some part of broadcasting services, the framework of standardization should be as same as the case in ITU-R SG 6.
      • Transmission side is under ITU (ITU-T)
      • Receiver side should be under IEC including terminal devices and home network
  • 11. Actions Requested
    • IEC General Secretary and ITU-T Director should recognize ‘overlapping foreseen in a year’ between two bodies on IPTV receivers and end-user network.
    • IEC General Secretary and ITU-T Director should develop mechanisms to resolve the following issues in addition to current liaison mechanism between ITU SG and IEC TC:
      • ITU-T asks IEC to develop an International Standard under the scope of IEC, or vice versa.
      • To develop dual logo (IEC & ITU-T) document if necessary.
      • IEC TC 100 Secretaries participate JCA IPTV and ITU-T operates this group.
      • However, JCA IPTV is not the body to discuss but only disseminate the decisions made outside the meeting.
  • 12. Proposal at ICSCA
    • I made a presentation at the last ICSCA meeting on April 10 in Miami where IEC, ISO and ITU representatives were expected to join
    • In this year, only IEC and ISO members were at the meeting.
    • After my presentation, they advised me to propose the following issue to SMB/TMB joint meeting.
  • 13. Proposal
    • Three International Standard Organisations under WSC (IEC/ISO/ITU) should have a group, either ad-hoc or standing, for harmonising the Standards by IEC and/or ISO and Recommendations by ITU-T that have possibility to affect significantly to another or all other organisations under WSC in this technical area. The group should consist of Technical Committee level and related Sub-Committee level officers of IEC and ISO and Study Group officers of ITU.
  • 14. Proposal (cont.)
    • IEC and ISO provides the specifications for equipment, devices and systems of home networks and IPTV receivers sold in retail markets while ITU-T covers access-network protocols, terminals distributed by service operators and a part of requirements for home-networks and end-user devices.
