Dem japa­ni­schen Anbie­ter von Tele­kom­mu­ni­ka­ti­ons­ge­rä­ten, OKI Electric Indus­try, ist es gelun­gen Ultra HD-Mate­rial via IPTV von Japan über Sin­ga­pur zu den Phil­li­pi­nen zu über­tra­gen. Dabei wurde das Inter­net Pro­to­koll IPv6 genutzt, wel­ches heute das stan­dar­di­sierte Ver­fah­ren zur Über­tra­gung von Daten ist.

Die­ser Ver­such sollte auch ver­deut­li­chen wozu das IPv6 Pro­to­koll fähig ist, da die­ses in kei­nem der Märkte gro­ßen Anklang fin­det.

Das Ultra HD-Mate­rial, wel­ches von Hok­kaido Tele­vi­sion Broad­cas­ting zur Ver­fü­gung gestellt wurde, ist auf einen Media­Ser­ver von OKI gespei­chert wor­den und von dort via Light­weight Inter­ac­tive Mul­ti­me­dia Envi­ro­ment (LIME) über IPTV über­tra­gen wor­den. Die Über­tra­gung war Teil der Video-Über­tra­gungs-Stu­die im Rah­men des Sap­poro Snow Fes­ti­vals Anfang Februar.

Japa­ni­sche Her­stel­ler, haben es mit Unter­stüt­zung der Regie­rung, an die Spitze der Ent­wick­lung und Ver­mark­tung des neuen 4K Ultra HD-Stan­dards geschafft. Da 4K die benö­tigte Daten­menge quasi ver­vier­facht, gab es immer wie­der Beden­ken, dass heu­tige Über­tra­gungs­me­tho­den die­sen Ansturm an Daten ein­fach nicht gewach­sen seien – des­halb ent­schied man sich für die Über­tra­gung via IPv6.

OKI betonte in der Pres­se­mit­tei­lung, dass der Media Ser­ver nur mit übli­chen Video-Über­tra­gungs-Funk­tio­nen aus­ge­stat­tet und via instal­lier­ten IPTV Ser­ver trotz­dem in der Lage war, das hoch­auf­lö­sende Mate­rial zu über­tra­gen. Diese Bot­schaft war OKI sehr wich­tig, da es noch keine ein­heit­li­chen Stan­dards für die Über­tra­gung von 4K gibt. Im Grunde ist es aber bereits mit den vor­han­de­nen Mit­teln mög­lich, Ultra HD-Mate­rial zu über­tra­gen.

OKI Successfully Completes IPv6-based Video Distribution Trials Using the OKI MediaServer in Singapore and the Philippines

– Other trials verify state-of-the art IPTV technologies to promote ITU-T IPTV Standards –


OKI (TOKYO:6703) recently con­clu­ded suc­cess­ful tri­als based on the OKI Media­Ser­ver video dis­tri­bu­tion sys­tem as part of efforts to pro­mote ITU-T IPTV Stan­dards. These tri­als invol­ved the dis­tri­bu­tion of IPv6-based video to Sin­g­a­pore and Phil­ip­pi­nes, regi­ons where IPv6 has yet to be adop­ted; the dis­tri­bu­tion of 4K video con­tent based on state-of-the-art IPTV tech­no­lo­gies; and fea­si­bi­lity con­fir­ma­tion for new IPTV app­li­ca­ti­ons allo­wing col­la­bo­ra­tive lin­king to ser­vices avail­able on the Inter­net.

The tri­als were per­for­med using the ITU IPTV IPv6 Glo­bal Test­bed („test­bed“ hereaf­ter), an expe­ri­men­tal envi­ron­ment that uses OKI Media­Ser­ver to dis­tri­bute con­tent crea­ted by Hok­kaido Tele­vi­sion Broad­cas­ting (HTB) based on the Light­weight Inter­ac­tive Mul­ti­me­dia Envi­ron­ment (LIME) stan­dard. Pre­vious tri­als dis­tri­buted video con­tent to the ITU-T Head­quar­ters in Swit­z­er­land and to Dubai in the United Arab Emi­ra­tes. The latest tri­als dis­tri­buted video to Sin­g­a­pore and the Phil­ip­pi­nes, regi­ons that have yet to fully adopt IPv6. The tri­als took place over the three-day period from Febru­ary 5 to 7, 2013, as part of the Sap­poro Snow Fes­ti­val Video Dis­tri­bu­tion Trial hosted by the Natio­nal Insti­tute of Infor­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons Tech­no­logy (NICT, Pre­si­dent: Dr. Hideo Miya­hara).

Mal­colm John­son, Direc­tor of the Tele­com­mu­ni­ca­tion Stan­dar­di­za­t­ion Bureau, ITU: „ITU empha­si­zes the main­strea­m­ing of acces­si­bi­lity con­side­ra­ti­ons in the deve­lop­ment of inter­na­tio­nal stan­dards (ITU-T Recom­men­da­ti­ons). This is espe­cially import­ant in the case of audio­vi­sual media and ITU’s work on IPTV is an exam­ple of how acces­si­ble ICTs will reduce the impact of disa­bi­lity and increase social inclu­sion. Glo­bally defi­ned stan­dards for IPTV by ITU-T Study Group 16 are key for inter­ope­ra­ble, high qua­lity, acces­si­ble con­tent dis­tri­bu­tion over qua­lity-mana­ged net­works.“

And­rea Saks, con­ve­ner of the JCA-AHF, a key group on acces­si­bi­lity in ITU: „Audio­vi­sual media acces­si­bi­lity is key to enab­ling the inte­gra­tion of per­sons with disa­bi­li­ties into society – espe­cially today when new tech­no­lo­gies bring so many oppor­tu­nities. ITU’s stan­dards pro­cess ensu­res that acces­si­bi­lity needs are met from the very begin­ning, as well the needs of the glo­bal multi lin­gual main­stream society – the­re­fore avo­iding costly retro­fit­ting at a later date. The use of sub­tit­ling (or cap­tio­n­ing as it is also known) in the expe­ri­ment pro­ves that cap­tio­n­ing is not just for per­sons with disa­bi­li­ties, but for ever­yone.“

Ate­neo de Manila Uni­ver­sity: „With the IPTV Test­bed, our Ate­neo de Manila Uni­ver­sity senior engi­nee­ring stu­dents were able to do hands-on study and expe­ri­ments on new TV net­work archi­tec­ture, con­tent crea­tion and video dis­tri­bu­tion using OKI Media­ser­ver inte­gra­ted plat­form for high qua­lity video dis­tri­bu­tion over PLDT’s IP net­work The coope­ra­tion pro­ves also that to deve­lop a new inte­gra­tive tech­no­logy, an effi­ci­ent indus­try- aca­deme govern­ment col­la­bo­ra­tion helps accu­mu­late know­ledge, acce­le­rate standardization/development of new tech­no­logy and incu­bate busi­ness solu­tion.
