2012MMSys has announced the selected papers that will be presentend next year. The list is quite impressive and provides numerous R&D insights on how DASH and HTTP streaming in general can be optimized. Let's book our seats for great topics like :
- Shaping HTTP adaptive streams for a better user experience
- QDASH: A QoE-aware DASH system
- Adaptive Scalable Video Streaming in Wireless Networks
- Synchronized Delivery of Multimedia Content over Uncoordinated Broadcast Broadband Networks
- Quality Selection for Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP with Scalable Video Coding
Consumers have come to expect relatively good deals for Web access. But as broadband becomes the primary focus for cable operators, those days are waning and significant annual cost hikes (with all kinds of usage caps) will become the norm. A teenager today very likely will find a broadband single-play in 2021 costs as much, or more, than a triple-play costs now. Maybe sooner. It will be intriguing to watch for the inflection point when cable executives find themselves grappling with enough TV subscriber exodus to begin trying to win over Wall Street with an aggressive broadband-first – we-win no-matter-which-way-the-wind-blows -- position. (They can toss in the access business comes without having to pay huge carriage fees to networks.) That change in emphasis probably won’t come this year or next, but investor pressure might call for some change in tone sooner than planned.
Even though availability has been successful, Kent pointed out that adoption, on the other hand, has been disappointing. "In terms of availability, it's been a tremendous success; in terms of adoption, it has not been a success at this point," said Kent. "It's been disappointing." He explained that two main reasons for low adoption are not enough content and it being marketed poorly. He said that the authentication process for viewing content should be streamlined. "Wouldn't it be a great thing to have a single white sheet of paper that said ‘Here's how you go and register so you can get all this great content that's available now,' " said Kent. "I have yet to see a single distributor in any aggressive way put that out there." He said Turner would adopt that strategy. Kent said the biggest roadblock in terms of content seems to be that content providers wait until their channel agreements are up for renewal to negotiate TV Everywhere deals, thus slowing the process. "I don't think you have to wait for your four or five year channel renewal deal to come up with an operator to start letting our customers get access to this content," he said.
Late last month I got an advance look at the new IPG Media Lab, recently relocated from LA to New York and sporting all manner of flashy tech displays. Where the LA lab was essentially a connected-home display designed to...
