Digital+ tests VoD with MPEG-4

Iaki Ferreras | 03-11-2010

Spanish satellite pay-TV operator Digital+ is using MPEG-4 AVC for its video-on-demand tests.



Digital+ wants to offer video-on-demand (VoD) market as 'Rapid TV News' recently announced but it needs broadband speeds of 3Mbps to do so. This speed can be provided by the DSL networks.

The operators advanced decoder, called iPlus, can reproduce the most advanced codec of the digital TV market, the so-called MPEG-4 AVC, currently used by the HDTV channels of the operator. Standard-definition channels offer their video encrypted signal in MPEG-2 needing less bandwidth than the MPEG-4 AVC.

So the platform is using the MPEG-4 AVC for the VoD tests. Once the user chooses the content he wants to watch it will be downloaded to the iPlus set-top-box. The downloading of the content will be immediate for those connections higher than 8 Mbps.
