ATSC 3.0 Series Module 4: MPEG Media Transport Standard and Its Use in ATSC 3.0

Instructional Method: Available ON DEMAND


After successful development and deployment of media delivery standards such as MPEG-2 Transport Streams and ISO Base Media File Format, MPEG has developed new standards for IP-based services, namely MPEG Media Transport (MMT) and Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH). Developed for the industry, MMT has been enjoyed the benefits of MPEG-2 TS while considering migration to IP-based delivery. Japanese Super Hi-Vision was the first broadcasting service to adopt MMT and then ATSC 3.0 also adopted it. In this seminar important features of MMT utilizing benefits of IP while preserving useful features of MPEG-2 TS and how they has been harmonized with ATSC 3.0 standards will be presented.
