HDTV Codecs - How Much Bandwidth Does It Take

Time:

2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Day: April 5
Place: Las Vegas Convention Center N109

It was once inconceivable that HD television could fit into a 6 MHz channel. Now MPEG codecs have improved to the point that HD can be part of a multicasting plan. How far will this go? Will MPEG compression keep up with other codec options that are evolving much more quickly? Distributing content as IP can be even more efficient. Where should IP content distribution fit into your station‘s plans?

This session will tackle these issues and present available solutions that can be incorporated into a digital television channel. It will offer advice for multicasting, HD encoding rates and datacasting options. Current and future options will be explored. Microsoft will demonstrate HD television in just 6 Mbps using IP streaming video.
