The evolution of video, from technicolor to streaming to 4K

The evolution of video, from technicolor to streaming to 4K | Webcast la mutation audiovisuelle | Scoop.it

Today, when we watch a Facebook video on our smartphone or a CGI-drenched film on Netflix, we tend to overlook the tremendous progress that's been made in the fields of filmmaking and video formatting this past century.

From the cinematograph in 1895, to the first consumer camcorders in the 1980s, and 4k resolution and stereoscopic 3D graphics in the aughts, video pioneers have continued to invent new ways of creating and capturing moving images.

If history serves as precedent, video innovation won't be halting any time soon. At the Consumer Electronics Show this year, for instance, Sony introduced action cameras capable of capturing point-of-view moving shots in stunning 4k resolution.

Here's a look back at how video evolved from the cinematograph to the GoPro, and what advancements might be on the horizon. (...)

« TV intelligente » : la guerre des plates-formes est lancée

« TV intelligente » : la guerre des plates-formes est lancée | Webcast la mutation audiovisuelle | Scoop.it

S’allier à Google ou pas ? Tel est le grand dilemme auquel sont confrontés les fabricants d’électronique grand public. Internet étant arrivé dans le téléviseur, le téléspectateur-internaute aime accéder à tous ses contenus (chaînes de télé, sites Web, jeux vidéo, mails, etc.) quel que soit son écran. Le choix de la plate-forme intégrée dans la télévision est donc crucial pour les fabricants.
Avec Google, les industriels sont certains de toucher un large public déjà habitué aux applications du géant du Net, qui fonctionnent partout. Mais ils ne maîtrisent pas les données du client. Or c’est là que réside l’essentiel de la valeur ajoutée. (...)

Four More Ways Streaming Quality Must Improve to Compete With TV

Four More Ways Streaming Quality Must Improve to Compete With TV | Webcast la mutation audiovisuelle | Scoop.it

In last month’s Streams of Thought column, I wrote about three quality issues the industry needs to solve as quickly as possible: artifacting, AV synchronization, and buffering.

I ended with a cliffhanger, not unlike what happens when an online video suddenly stops midstream and retrieves the next few seconds of video. In many instances, this is registered in player logs as dropped frames, a topic we’ll cover below.

In some instances, the video just stutters because the playback device can’t handle the complexity of the encoded content. Those instances aren’t measured by any media player that I know of, but we need a way to do so, as they’re the online video equivalent of “rain fade” on MPEG-2 video delivery from satellite TV. If it happens too much, it becomes a running joke among consumers, one that now has enough reach to discourage potential customers from trusting satellite’s ability to deliver quality service consistently.

Peer-to-Peer Architecture Could Save Streaming Video | Webcast la mutation audiovisuelle | Scoop.it
Not a newsflash: the online video market is booming. And escalating demand from consumers for longer and higher-definition content is driving a mass migration of digital fare to content delivery networks (CDNs), to support a good end-user experience. But online video needs a future savior: There's a clear event horizon where delivery overhead outstrips even CDN capacity.

Haivision’s InStream Mobile Adds HEVC and SRT for Low Latency Enterprise Mobile Applications

Haivision’s InStream Mobile Adds HEVC and SRT for Low Latency Enterprise Mobile Applications | Webcast la mutation audiovisuelle | Scoop.it

Haivision, an enterprise video technology company, today announced the newest release of the company’s free enterprise media player for low latency live streaming to mobile devices – InStream Mobile 1.2.

The latest version now supports HEVC/H.265 (in addition to H.264) for bandwidth efficiency and SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) for stream resiliency and security. InStream Mobile is now available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play.

InStream Mobile keeps employees connected by streaming low latency, secure video to their mobile devices. InStream Mobile allows enterprise users to tune in to internal video streams and channels for training, contextual review, corporate all hands, important announcements or other live video content, all from within an organization’s secure network.

An open standard player, InStream Mobile can decode streams from many encoders, but works best with Haivision Makito X encoders. Combining Haivision Makito X Encoders and InStream Mobile can result in end-to-end latency of less than 500 milliseconds for 1080p60 video without the need for a central streaming server. In contrast, typical mobile streaming solutions are subject to a 10 to 60 second delay.

New to InStream Mobile, HEVC (high efficiency video coding), also known as H.265, is the latest video compression standard offering improved streaming efficiency. When transmitting video over constrained networks, HEVC provides significantly improved video quality compared to H.264 at the same bitrate.

InStream Mobile also supports SRT, Haivision’s streaming protocol designed to deliver the best video quality at all times. SRT optimizes video streaming performance across unpredictable Internet networks, where packet loss, jitter and bandwidth fluctuations can severely affect the viewing experience. SRT combines end-to-end security, resiliency and network awareness, taming common Internet streaming challenges to deliver the highest quality video to viewers. Haivision’s SRT technology is also available on the Makito X family of video encoders and within other solutions in the Haivision ecosystem.

Supporting Transport Stream multicast, HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), and Haivision’s SRT, InStream Mobile gives users access to local performance streams as well as those available on the Internet. Local multicast transport streams do not need to be transcoded, resized, or converted to HLS, allowing InStream Mobile to be instantly deployed within current enterprise workflows. InStream Mobile also supports a central channel guide file so the channel list for all users can quickly be established and changed, further easing deployment and media control.

“Streaming video architects have been looking for a mobile solution supporting live low latency video streaming,” said Peter Maag, Haivision’s chief marketing officer. “For example, VideoLAN’s VLC is used extensively for simple desktop installations, but a mobile solution has not been available for live transport stream video consumption. InStream Mobile fills this gap and, when combined with our Makito X, adds the power of transporting video over the Internet with SRT.”

The Adoption Of 4K Streaming Will Be Stalled By Bandwidth, Not Hardware And Devices

With all the talk of 4K that took place at CES, some within the industry are making statements and assumptions about 4K streaming bitrates that simply aren't accurate. Many are under the impression that 4K streaming will soon be delivered at around 10-12Mbps using HEVC and also are quoting data from Akamai (NASDAQ:AKAM) incorrectly. If you look at the HEVC testing that guys like Jan Ozer and Alex Zambelli have done, and look at the data Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) has presented around their 4K encoding (Netflix's current bitrate for 4K is 15.6Mbps), the bitrates won't get down to 10-12Mbps anytime soon.
