Webcast: Next-Generation Television Delivery
2009-12-01 14:00:00Broadcasters and cable programmers have more platforms and formats to serve today than ever, thanks to the pace of technology development and corporate globalization. But they also have more choices in how to receive and deliver that content, including traditional, real-time satellite, fiber video links and IP-based, non-real-time file transfers, as well as new, more efficient video compression and modulation techniques.
This Webinar will discuss:
- How broadcasters and cable programmers are using new tools such as MPEG-4 compression and DVB-S2 advanced modulation to maximize their transmission capacity.
- How broadcast networks are managing their program distribution in a post-analog world.
- Why some cable programmers are transitioning to all-high-definition delivery, and how Active Format Description (AFD) technology can help support standard-definition viewers.
- How networks balance picture quality versus bandwidth efficiency.
- The increasing use of high-bit-rate fiber feeds to handle contribution links for live sports and news coverage.
- Network news operations' roadmap for converting to high-definition satellite newsgathering (HD SNG).
- The challenges in providing traditional linear content to new digital platforms, such as video-on-demand, mobile TV or broadband streams.
