Live IP Contribution & Distribution

We are currently developing a DPP Recommendation for Live IP contribution and distribution, to complement the delivery requirements for delivery of finished programmes by file or IP stream.

We will take a phased approach to this work, focussing on immediate business requirements covering SD and HD video with some limited 4K streams.

To date, the working group have considered a range of scenarios covering the live contribution of video over IP networks, and distribution of live content to DTT/DSAT and other delivery platforms.

The group, including broadcasters, systems vendors and streaming technology providers, has defined a range of use-cases and has developed recommended video encoding profiles and streaming profiles, covering transport stream technology across various network types.

Future phases will consider 4K UHD, lossless compression, streams for social media platforms, content with varied aspect ratios and digital program insertion into live IP streams.

The outputs from this group will be published as a DPP Recommendation in early 2019.
