OKI and HTB Commence Joint Video Distribution Experiment in Compliance with ITU-T IPTV Standards

Using the JGN-X1 cloud environment managed by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), OKI (TOKYO:6703) and Hokkaido Television Broadcasting (HTB) have jointly set up the OKI MediaServer, an OKI video distribution system that complies with the ITU-T IPTV standards.

Effective October 1, 2012, the partners launched the experimental ITU IPTV IPv6 global testbed for content2 distribution created by HTB based on the LIME standard specification. This experiment will distribute IPTV content to organizations in various countries interconnected by JGN-X, including service providers, research institutes, and universities, for the purpose of promoting the ITU-T IPTV standards. The plan calls for eventually expanding the network to approximately ten countries by the end of March 2015, based on requests from overseas service providers considering adopting the IPTV Standard.

OKI and HTB have launched the ITU IPTV IPv6 global testbed project to promote the diffusion of the ITU-T IPTV standards and to establish an environment for service verification by service providers planning to adopt the IPTV Standard. This testbed can primarily be used to verify the following: (1) whether a network offers adequate bandwidth and quality (delay, loss) suitable for IPTV video distribution; (2) functions allowing collaborative linking of videos, still images, text, and applications in content created based on LIME standard specifications. The content produced by participants for such verification will be registered on the OKI MediaServer.

As part of this experimental project, the partners presented a demonstration of video distribution on November 20 and 21 at the ITU Headquarters in Switzerland and at the World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly 2012 (WTSA-12) held in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. WTSA-12 participants will include regulatory agencies working in the area of communications and telecommunications carriers in UN member states. OKI believes participation in the event will help promote the ITU-T IPTV standards.
