The future of adaptive bit rate streaming [IBC VIDEO]

The future of adaptive bit rate streaming [IBC VIDEO] | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

In this IBC interview, Ramin Farassat, VP of Product Marketing and Business Development at RGB Networks, provides a crisp analysis of where adaptive bit rate streaming could be heading next. It considers the use of just-in-time packaging for multi-screen nPVR and VOD, with its potential to save server storage space, and the inclusion of audio in adaptive streaming so consumers with more bandwidth can jump from stereo to 5.1 surround sound. He also outlines why some operators are conducting friendly trials with ABR set-top boxes, hoping to unify all video infrastructure around IP ABR video.

Emerging multiscreen services are being held back by fragmented standards, particularly over interaction between companion screens and linear broadcast services. At an IBC press conference the DVB said it wanted to act as a unifying force both in digital terrestrial transmission and companion screen interaction.

 

So far companion screen applications have grown up around many different proprietary technologies and are ripe for standardization, according to Nick Wells, vice chair of the DVB Technical Committee. “I expect to see broadcast and IP networks working together and here the DVB has a huge amount to offer,” said Wells.
