The LTE Broadcast solution consists of three new technology standards:
HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) - the new video compression standardpromises to half the bandwidth required to transport video content comparetotoday's leading implementation of MPEG-4 AVC.
MPEG DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH)) - simplifies andstandardizes the adaptive delivery of video to consumer devices, ensuring abetter quality of service, greater efficiency and opening opportunities formonetization
eMBMS (Evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service) - a 3GPP standardthatenables mobile networks to offer broadcast/multicast services dynamicallytooffload issues of popular content in dense consumption scenarios, reducingthecost of service delivery over the radio network and for backhaul.
Ericsson's ConsumerLab research shows that 67 percent of consumers usemobiledevices (tablet, laptop or smartphone) for consumption of TV services.Furthermore the research shows that over 50% of TV consumption onsmartphonehappens outside of the home (on mobile networks). The new video over LTEsolution meets the needs for greater efficiency in the delivery of contenttoall devices and greater personalization of TV experiences.
