Interop Event on IPTV, Geneva, 20-23 July 2010Wednesday, March 24th, 2010
Internet Protocol Television, or IPTV, is one of the latest developments in the ICT industry and a major business opportunity for telcos, content providers and broadcasters. Various Study Groups of the ITU standardization sector have been developing a consistent set of technical specifications or standards under the umbrella of the IPTV Global Standards Initiative (IPTV-GSI). Recommendations developed under IPTV-GSI will encourage innovation, mask the complexity of services, guarantee QoS, ensure interoperability and ultimately help players remain competitive.
The first IPTV interop event will demonstrate the state of maturity and industry adoption of ITU-T standards for IPTV, for example: H.701, H.721, H.740, H.750, H.761, H.762, H.770. Manufacturers of set top boxes, content servers and other equipment are invited to showcase their products and test for interoperability.
