TeleMedicine White Papers and Case Studies

Improving the Internet TV and Mobile Video Experience

Digital Rapids

When delivering video over the Web or to mobile devices, the unpredictable nature of viewers' network connections is a key challenge to ensuring consistent, high-quality viewing experiences. Adaptive streaming technologies set out to solve this problem, enabling higher-quality video with television-like continuity and reliability on the Web and mobile devices - even under drastically changing network connectivity and playback conditions. This white paper provides an overview of adaptive streaming technologies, and looks at best practices for encoding for adaptive streaming.



Security Impacts of Next-Generation Set-Top Boxes

Cloakware

Consumer demand for media-rich home entertainment services is driving innovation and new revenue opportunities in the set-top box (STB) industry. Next-generation STBs will integrate video content from multiple signal sources such as broadcast television, premium video-on-demand and Internet-based services, provide value-added capabilities like time-shifting, and allow content to be distributed to a variety of viewing devices including multi-room TV networks, personal computers, portable media players and other mobile devices.


An Introduction to IPTV

Exterity

This white paper is written for those who know very little, if anything, about IPTV. It avoids the use of technical jargon while still explaining IPTV.

In this white paper:

  • What is IPTV?
  • How does IPTV compare to traditional audio/visual (AV) solutions? And what are the benefits?
  • Why organisations are adopting IPTV
  • Markets where IPTV is already being used
  • How it works



Network Provisioning Solution

Enhanced Telecommunications, Inc.

Large telephone companies and service bureaus supporting delivery of IPTV video services must provide centralized signal processing and system management to provide economy of scale. Centralized signal processing also simplifies the daily maintenance and operations of their many smaller and remote sites.



Broadband Applications Fueling Consumer Demand

Alcatel

Telcos have a narrow window of opportunity in which to exploit their interactive strengths against competitors. Technical advancements have converged with consumer demand to provide meaningful broadband applications consumers are both willing to pay for and stay for. What will it take for telcos to win the broadband war and secure new revenue streams? Four emerging broadband applications provide incumbent telcos with renewed prospects to retain valued customers: video, gaming, home networking, and audio on demand.


IPTV/VoD The Great Content Adventure

Digital TX

“The problem is that they want the world, but they don’t want to pay for it”, said the BBC executive sitting opposite me sipping on his cappuccino. “They are all knocking on our door wanting all our content for free, and it’s so difficult when they don’t understand the costs involved and how this industry operates”. The reason I started Digital TX Ltd was due to hearing this in conversation more times than I care to remember.


 

IPTV/VoD The Open 4th Platform

Digital TX

Just when you thought the days of the digital TV “walled garden” were over, this week Sky released its new “Sky Net” platform, which is almost as imaginatively titled as the new service to be released by the start-up “Aggregator” this year. It seems the world is taking a giant leap backward to the days of web portals and brand marketing that failed so dismally in the past. At the least Aggregator’s service will use a broadband connection, as Sky’s new train set is still firmly routed In the days of signal-noise ratios of 33.3k dial-up modems.


 

Enabling The Future of Value-Added Services for IP

Inovaware

In the aggressive world of Internet services profits can be elusive. The margins associated with basic access are not enough to keep service providers in business anymore. Fortunately, the dynamic evolution of the Internet has led to an influx of new services, applications and technologies that are being brought to the market and the availability of high-speed, always-on broadband access has opened the door to new and exciting possibilities for service providers and carriers.


 

H.264 & IPTV Over DSL

Intel

Telcos face a growing challenge from their competitors in the cable television operator and wireless telephone industries. Metropolitan cable service operators (MSOs) offer new Internet access and voice over IP (VoIP) telephone services— along with digital video and television—that encroach on the market and revenue of telcos. And consumers are choosing the convenience of personal wireless telephones over traditional wireline service.


Preparing for the IPTV Future

Micronas

IPTV, short for Internet Protocol Television, is a new method of delivering and viewing television programming using an IP network and high speed broadband access technology. More than simply a new distribution and playback method, IPTV is poised to create an entirely new mindset about the television experience. Whereas current terrestrial broadcast television is the same content sent continuously to all consumers’ homes, IPTV removes the fixed television schedule. Similar to how information on the Internet can be downloaded and viewed at any time, IPTV enables television programming to be available whenever each individual consumer demands it. In this way, each household can create their own custom content and viewing schedule.


 

The Emerging Market for Networked Digital Television

Micronas

There are vast amounts of personal digital content – photos, audio and increasingly video files – that exist in homes around the globe. Billions of these types of files are in stored computers, but rarely shared or seen due to the inconvenience of gathering people around a computer. However, several factors are converging to fundamentally change this paradigm. Increasingly, more and more consumers will find it just as easy to show digital photos to friends, play audio files and download television programming in their living room.


 

Microsoft TV IPTV Edition

Microsoft

Microsoft® TV is a family of software solutions that powers the next generation of digital TV services across broadcast networks, set-top boxes, and multimedia devices. New IPTV software from Microsoft allows network operators to deliver compelling digital TV services using today’s broadband technologies, along with voice and data services.


Reaching the Unreachable Consumer: Advertising in the Digital Age

Parks Associates

In the digital age, consumers are inundated with different types of advertising. A recent
Economist article claims that a consumer is exposed to more than 3,000 advertising messages everyday, explicitly and subtly.1 Are they all relevant and meaningful to consumers? Probably not, because consumers are running as far away from advertising and marketing as they can. Anecdotal evidence and some hard data point to a consumer base that is engaging more in what we call “tuning in but turning off” behavior when it comes to traditional media advertising.


 

Internet Protocol Television: A Survival Strategy or Revenue Generator for Telcos?

Parks Associates

Internet protocol television (IPTV) uses IP as the transport platform to send video signals to the television via high-speed Internet connections such as fiber-to-the-X connections (FTTx) and/or next-generation digital subscriber lines (xDSL). With this technology, consumers will be in complete control of what, when, and where they watch television programming. Moreover, given the versatility of the IP network, consumers will have the opportunity to embrace a plethora of services that go beyond video signals.

The IPTV Conundrum in Asia

Parks Associates

Asia is clearly at the forefront of the IPTV movement. Hong Kong leads the world in IPTV penetration with over 500,000 subscribers, substantial deployments have already been made in Taiwan and Japan, and China, thanks to its size, is poised to dominate the global market for IPTV equipment. Several factors make Asia fertile ground for IPTV service. For one, many countries in the region have robust broadband access networks boasting connection speeds that are the envy of the world. The bulk of the infrastructure needed for IPTV service is thus already in place. Asian content providers have also been willing to fill those pipes sooner rather than later.


 

Rescuing 3G With Mobile TV: Business Models and Monetizing 3G

Pyramid Research

TV has been described as the “75-year-old killer application.” In a context where Mobile network operators (MNOs) are looking for the few applications which will finally accelerate 3G adoption, it is understandable that Mobile TV would draw so much attention. Still, the question remains: Could Mobile TV be the application that finally lifts 3G? The answer is hardly certain.


 

Advantages of All-Digital Processing in DTV Waveform Monitors

Tektronix

How important is accuracy in your work?
There are limitations in the waveform monitor displays that engineers, technicians, and artists use to examine digital video. In this document, we will examine the primary waveform monitor architectures, explain why what users see may not be what they get, and explore the advantages of an all-digital approach.


The Missing Link in File-Based Video: Automated QC

Tektronix

The broadcast world is going digital, and the digital domain is expanding enormously for broadcasters. In the past, 'digital' mean taking video from analog tape, encoding it to MPEG-2 and then transmitting it. However, the entire broadcasting landscape is getting more complex with distribution via terrestrial, satellite, cable, 'podcasts', HD-DVD, internet and movile; not just standard definition but also HD (High Definition) and many other resolutions to suit the new distribution media. Content is being re-purposed at these different resolutions and frame rates, using new codecs and at different bit-rates, with different system requirements for each.
