Future Media Delivery Platforms

1102, 28/09/2010 (16:00-17:30)

Media delivery platforms are evolving in several ways, including being able to ‘interact’ more with users.

Media delivery platforms are evolving from being purely broadcast-based networks to becoming hybrid broadcast-broadband and broadband-based networks. In addition, there has been a convergence of traditional usages of media with mobile internet devices. Media delivery platforms are also moving from SD and HD images to 3D and multi-view experiences, while for the users, personalisation, context and interaction are all becoming more and more important. This session will analyse how R&D in media delivery should evolve, and will feature stakeholders from the media industry. Participants will also be able to present expressions of interest and project ideas.

A very important topic. Will this address the topics of (social) immersive media?

Broadcasting media internet: A strategy for the exploitation of the interleaved spectrum

Comm 2007/700 presents the European strategy concerning UHF spectrum. However several inaccuracies and errors are contained in it like (page 3): the locally unused spectrum (interleaved) is introduced as a “new product” due to DSO, even more as “important” complement to the digital dividend, or it is considered as identical to the term “white space spectrum” introduced recently in USA by the White Space Coalition

• The interleaved spectrum (channels) is the result, of any National Coverage Implementation and not a result of the DSO neither “important” complement to the spectrum dividend. It is the opposite

• The term “white space spectrum” is not identical to the European term “Interleaved TV channels” neither the European DSO is (not at all) identical to the American DSO

Our approach targeting to new innovative infrastructures in UHF(IP backbones in UHF) avoids the irreversible loss of such an important spectrum that will result if full duplex cognitive devices will be adopted
