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