During the Celtic-plus Event 2014 in Monaco, the H2B2VS partners presented the mid-term results of the project. Among them, the definition of hybrid use cases and associated business models, the status of hybrid Broadcast-Broadband H2B2VS demonstrators and also the achievements in standardization (MPEG & DVB) on synchronization mechanisms allowing the transmission of video services over Broadcast- Broadband hybrid networks. H2B2VS also showcased intermediate results of the project on its booth. The demonstration simulated the...read more
H2B2VS partners presented the first demonstration of hybrid content delivery by showing how to synchronize the 2 layers of a SHVC encoded video. With the parallel development of scalable extensions for HEVC (SHVC, MV-HEVC) and timeline and external media information carriage in MPEG-2 TS (TEMI), MPEG is creating the foundation of future services for the broadcast industry: flexibility and extensibility in media coding, carried over using heterogeneous networks, including broadcast and broadband networks. As part of the H2B2VS project, Telecom...read more
Following the project’s contribution to the 107th MPEG Meeting in San José, California, WG11 has sent a liaison letter to DVB informing of the on-going work on timeline signaling in MPEG-2 TS, 13818-1:2013 DAM6. Some fruitful discussions happened in DVB CSS group, including some members of the H2B2VS project, and a liaison letter was sent back to MPEG (m31817). H2B2VS contributed to the MPEG input document addressing the technical questions in this liaison (m32287). H2B2VS has contributed as well to a submission to JCTVT requesting to...read more
H2B2VS showcases the 1st version of its French Terrestrial demonstrator during the “Loading the Future 2013” event in Rennes on 14 November 2013.
The 1st integration step of the French H2B2VS demonstrator was successfully achieved in October 2013. Its purpose was to setup an end to end transmission chain of HEVC over DVB-T2. It relies on the ImaginLab DVB-T2 Platform which was enriched by HEVC encoding and decoding equipment. It allows the simultaneous transmission of a live-transcoded 1080p25 French HDTV channel and off-line-encoded 2160p25 Ultra HD file content
H2B2Vs continues to work with the MPEG standardization body to enable signaling and synchronization of external enhancements of programs carried over MPEG-2 Transport Stream. In particular the project’s proposal can be used to locate and synchronize external content with an MPEG-2 TS program, regardless of the external content packaging or coding types.read more
