Topic: IPTV


  
  IPTV World Forum Asia - Home
IPTV is evolving and the demand for triple-play and quad-play bundles, for integrated telecoms/media services like voicemail and instant messaging on the TV, and for content portability across multiple networks, is a common theme.
Linear schedules are still important but the real differentiator for IPTV is on-demand video, interactive TV, interactive advertising, on-demand advertising, time-shifting and the way service providers can help content owners target their advertiser audience in an age of media fragmentation and niche audience groups.
It will also help delegates prepare for phase two of IPTV, which is when broadband service providers have the chance to turn their telecoms heritage from a disadvantage in the content/media world to a compelling benefit in an era that will be dominated by convergence and network intelligence.

  An introduction to IPTV: Page 1
IPTV describes a system capable of receiving and displaying a video stream encoded as a series of Internet Protocol packets.
When most people discuss IPTV, though, they're talking about watching traditional channels on your television, where people demand a smooth, high-resolution, lag-free picture, and it's the telcos that are jumping headfirst into this market.
For IPTV to become a viable whole-house solution, it will also need to support enough simultaneous channels to allow televisions in different rooms to display different content, and juggling resulting bandwidth issues is one of the trickiest parts of implementing an IPTV network that will be attractive to consumers.

IPTV is represented by a profile of closed, proprietary TV systems such as those present today on cable services but delivered via IP-based secure channels representing a sharp increase in control of content distribution.
IPTV allows these organizations to have total control of the content distributed and to greatly reduce opportunities for theft and piracy, which last year cost the cable industry $4.76 billion in unrealized revenue.
