New Broadcasting Technologies Utilizing Broadband
For advanced video delivery services
Hybridcast which conforms to a new VOD standard*2 will further the convergence of broadcasting and Internet video. It provides a wider range of possibilities for Internet video services for TV such as recommending videos according to viewer preferences, linkage with mobile devices, and closed-caption services capable of diverse expressions.
We have developed a content player that can be commonly used for Hybridcast TV and web browsers on PCs and mobile devices. As the player uses standard Internet technologies, the services provided on it can use the existing Internet infrastructure.
For stable, large-scale video delivery on the Internet, we have developed a technology to measure the reception status of viewing terminals as well as a video stream generation technology.
We will continue with our R & D on new content delivery services in cooperation with other broadcasters, telecommunications carriers and Internet service providers.
