IPTV Quality of Experience

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) is a system where a digital television service is delivered using Internet Protocol over a network infrastructure. In this service, initially the TV signals are encoded in IP format. Further, these encoded data packets are delivered to appropriate destinations using internet network and finally at the client locations, using suitable decoder, these data packets are converted back to the TV signals. IPTV offers various advantages over traditional TV i.e. the quality of digital video and audio is much better compared with the traditional analogue TV. Secondly, as IPTV uses standard networking protocols, it promises lower costs for operators and lower prices for users. Finally, interactive features can be added to the IPTV i.e. Video-on-Demand, incoming call display and other interactive features. Most of these features are already available in the IPTV packages offered by various IPTV service providers. (As cited in introduction.)
