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
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 contribution as well as distribution Some cost, but far less than satellite.
Facilitates single or distributed “head-end”
IPTV Summit: Maximally Compressed IPTV is inevitable on campus. Soon for some (9/2008!), later for others. Hybrid solution for 5 - 10 years. Analog, digital cable, IPTV. IPTV is not internet video. Think Cable TV vs YouTube QOE, security required by content owners!
Delivery to PC’s & TV required by students.
IPTV Summit: Maximally Compressed Must segue from present without disruption. Work with corporate partner CTV content aggregation contracts Turn up head-ends at Indiana U, MERIT…
Share content over Internet2, static circuit?
IPTV Summit: Maximally Compressed Delivery Architecture & Technology Video Furnace SHE for 60 SD channels Begin HD delivery from Internet sources: Research Ch., Discovery, Nat. Geographic… OSTN student channel and Local Inserts This is the two-way differentiator! Contribution Architecture & Technology
Take advantage of DCN for live sports etc!
