Licencing Issues Threaten To Delay Practical HEVC Deployments Cont.
good quality de-interlacing is
critical to the success of HEVC in
professional deployments.
Addressing this issue at IBC,
AmberFin showed a softwarebased deinterlacer (as part of its iCR
multichannel processing platform)
that the company said helps HEVC
look great when applied to all types
of content and distribution platforms.
Basically, Devlin said broadcaster
employing progressive techniques in
their distribution platforms would be
good for their OTT business models
in the long run.
"We really don't need to rely on
interlacing anymore," he said. "We
have far better options that use
modern solid state electronics

and digital processing, with true
progressive scanning and without
compromise. HEVC will, I hope, be
one of the last nails in the coffin
of interlace."
This would mean that networks
like CBS and NBC, which have
standardised their traditional
television infrastructures on the
1080 interlaced HD format, would
be wise to rethink their technical
operations. ABC and Fox use the
720p format for its HD broadcasts.
So, until the HEVC licensing issues
are sorted out, broadcasters have
many options to consider in terms of
the type of compression technology
they want to deploy: hardware
versus software; GPU versus CPU

Ericsson Chip In
Ericsson predicts that by 2020, there will be 50
billion connected devices, 15 billion of which will be
video enabled.
In order to adequately meet the changing consumer
demand, operators must deploy new services within
the often-tough constraints of bandwidth, spectrum
and legacy networks.
At NAB2013, Ericsson launched a new high
performance compression platform claiming it

platforms; [FOOTNOTE]*8-bit versus
10-bit processing; and cloud versus
on-premise file processing.
With so many players currently
vying for this multiplatform delivery
pie, there's bound to be some
consolidation. It's also very likely
that this time next year a major
equipment vendor like Harris
Broadcast or Miranda Technologies
(owned by Belden) will acquire the
technology of one of these Silicon
Valley HEVC providers.
Many in the U.S. predict "real

world" deployments of HEVC H.265based IP platforms to begin by the
middle of next year.
The goal is to leverage HEVC
compression in order to improve
the efficiency of OTT content
delivery and support a wide
range of compelling services
that generate new revenue in the
connected universe.
The technology has been tested
in labs and limited field trials. Now
it is time for the industry to take
the next step.

*Subjectively, 8-bit processing works well with HD material, but shows some "banding
effect" issues when compressing the larger data rates of 4K materials. A 10-bit
processor tends to smooth out these artefacts, but requires 20% more computer
processing power.

"raises the bar for efficiency
and flexibility in the delivery of
TV services over all networks".
The AVP 4000, powered by
Ericsson's first-ever in-house
developed programmable video processing chip, offers
a single platform addressing multiple applications,
regardless of codec, resolution or network.
Ericsson's Head of TV Compression Business Dr
Giles Wilson said that developing its own chip was

the "next logical step".
Built on Ericsson technology, the AVP 4000 is capable
of addressing "all applications, codecs, resolutions
and profiles".
Claiming high performance and broad capabilities
on a single platform across all applications, from SD
to HD, the platform supports 1080p50/60, 3DTV and
UHDTV, and codecs, including MPEG-2, MPEG-4
AVC and JPEG2000, with 4:2:0 and 4:2:2, 8-bit and
10-bit all supported.
