  • 3. IPTV Summit: visions and reflections
    • What is the ideal end-game and how do “we” get there?
      • Most content can be VoD to pc’s, HD televisions, handheld devices -- “locally” cached.
      • “ Live” HD & SD content multicast over static circuit. Contribution video as well.
      • What is the ideal scale for delivery of VoD and of “live” channels?
        • Global, National, Regional, City, Campus
  • 4. Observations
    • Satellites are very expensive!
      • Scale very well for one to many delivery
      • Allow for rare two-way events from any uplink…also very expensive!
    • Static Circuit could connect RONS with robust IPTV-specific GigE connection
      • Two-way connection
        • contribution as well as distribution
      • Some cost, but far less than satellite.
