Media Synchronisation for Hybrid Delivery - 2014 October 22 14:00-18:00 - Strasbourg Convention and Conference Centre, Strasbourg, France

See the presentations in the public documents of MPEG 110 - Strasbourg

A public seminar on Media Synchronization for Hybrid Delivery will be held on 22nd of October 2014 during the 110th MPEG meeting in Strasbourg. The purpose of this seminar is to introduce MPEG’s activity on media stream synchronization in heterogeneous delivery environments, transported using existing MPEG systems technologies and to align its present and future standardizations with users and industry use-cases needs.

Main topics covered by the seminar interventions will be:

  • Hybrid Broadcast - Broadband distribution for UHD deployments and 2nd screen content
  • Inter Destination Media Synchronization
  • MPEG Standardization efforts on Time Line Alignment of media contents
  • Audio Fingerprint based Synchronization

You are invited to join the seminar to learn more about MPEG activities in this area and to work with us to further develop technologies and standards supporting new applications of rich and heterogeneous media delivery.

The seminar is open to the public.

Registration is free of charge.
