Multistandard integrated network convergence for global mobile and broadcast technologies

Multistandard integrated network convergence for global mobile and broadcast technologies

Objective

As we move towards an era of widespread information availability, an effectivesystem of convergence among the new broadcasting technologies, internettechnology, and mobile systems becomes increasingly important. Countries aredeploying multiple broadcast technologies; it will remain a key challenge forthe industry and user communities to provide a uniform platform to contentproviders, and convergence is critical to overcoming this challenge.The goal of MING?T is to research, develop, prototype, integrate and validatethe interoperability and handover issues of the representative mobile digitalbroadcast standards developed in China and Europe. We will address theissues of convergence between broadcast standards and mobile communicationsnetwork technologies. A further goal is to foster cooperationbetween Europe and China in both industry and research communities. Theproject will particularly address the convergence of the European DVB-Hstandard with the emerging Chinese standard (temporarily named as DMB-T)with a view to providing a harmonized framework. In addition the project willconsider the convergence between broadcast and mobile technology networksto provide a unified platform for the delivery of services to mobile terminals.Finally, the project will cover how to deliver these services with a consistentlevel of quality to rich media applications across mixed broadcast networks,and in particular on how scalable video coding may address this issue.Main project objectives:1. Develop an architecture that can provide seamless access in convergeddigital broadcasting and mobile communications networks.2. Incorporate Chinese DMB-T into the multi-standard framework.3. Apply advanced scalable coding techniques for the services in the convergeddigital broadcasting and mobile communications networks environment.4. Conduct field trials to provide validation support for the usability of thetechnologies developed.
