IBC 2013 : chipsets, HEVC et set-top-box

IBC 2013 : chipsets, HEVC et set-top-box | Video on the Internet | Scoop.it

L’IBC était l’occasion de faire le point sur l’offre de plusieurs concepteurs de chipsets pour set-top-boxes. Chaque année, les gammes évoluent pour tenir compte de l’évolution des besoins et de l’environnement technologiques : la gestion du multi-écrans, le support de l’HEVC, l’arrivée de la 4K et la gestion des réseaux domestiques.

 

Le support d’HEVC est clé pour tout fabricant de chipset car les appels d’offre des opérateurs de TV payante et d’IPTV commencent à intégrer le support d’HEVC. Ce support permet aux opérateurs d’étendre le parc de clients éligibles à l’IPTV. Pas question d’UHD dans ce cas, mais de simple SD ou HD. Comme l’HEVC réduit de 30% à 50% le débit nécessaire pour la transmission de vidéo, le bénéfice est évident pour les opérateurs. Les autres bénéfices de l’HEVC sont de réduire les coûts de CDN (Content Delivery Networks, les serveurs dans le cloud qui optimisent l’accès aux vidéos pour les consommateurs) et aussi d’améliorer les offres mobiles de consommation de vidéo en live comme à la demande. Les appels d’offre d’aujourd’hui correspondent à des déploiements qui démarreront entre fin 2014 et fin 2015 et génèreront une base installée de box qui devra tenir jusqu’à facilement 2019. Donc, il faut voir loin !

MPEG-DASH Ecosystem Status

MPEG-DASH Ecosystem Status | Video on the Internet | Scoop.it

How dynamic is MPEG-DASH Ecosystem after IBC 2013 ? Here is an analysis of the latest trends and an extensive industry DASH-compliant solutions directory.

 

While most of IBC’s buzz was generated by the shiny HEVC + 4K couple, it was a good occasion to stand back from the hype and measure how one of the most important video standards (at least for the OTT world) had spread over the industry since last year. MPEG-DASH is not sexy (let’s remember that it’s basically a collection of XML schemes), it’s a bit boring (as it’s usually demonstrated with the Big Buck Bunny that you saw not less than 2.000 times) and it’s complex – but once you go past those defaults, you might find that its potential to simplify your workflows and boost the profitability of your video service is high…

And that’s precisely what the industry has finally understood: video distributors want to streamline their workflows and save their storage budgets by reducing the number of output formats, they search for ways to build long term strategies with evolutive solutions – and all of this implies rolling away from proprietary ABR solutions like Smooth Streaming, HLS, HDS and the now defunct Widevine WVM proprietary packaging format (rest in peace), DASH’s first victim.

Google's VP9 video codec nearly done; YouTube will use it

Google's VP9 video codec nearly done; YouTube will use it | Video on the Internet | Scoop.it

One of the biggest video sites on the Net will use Google's next-generation video compression technology after it's fully defined on June 17.

 

The VP9 bitstream definition, which describes how video is compressed into a stream of data so it can be transmitted efficiently over a network, has been in beta testing for a week, said Matt Frost, senior business product manager for the WebM Project.

 

Paul Wilkins, a Google codec engineer, detailed the final schedule for the VP9 bitstream definition Thursday in a mailing list post.

 

WebM will be updated to accommodate the new video codec and a new audio codec called Opus, too, said another Google employee, Lou Quillio.
