Three Separable Transitions to IP

The CTO for Motorola’s Home business David Grubb gave a presentation today on IP video as part of the SCTE’s Live Learning Series. Much of the presentation covered familiar ground: the shift to the Internet Era of Television, multi-screen opportunities with IP delivery, and the need for rapid development of new TV applications and services. However, the story has also evolved. David Grubb covered three separate areas where cable operators can push forward with a transition to IP. The three areas are independent of each other, meaning service providers can prioritize activities as needed, while still working toward one overall goal – migration to an IP platform.

From today’s presentation:

Three Separable Transitions to IP

  • User Experience & Interface - Move to a web-based thin client approach to enable rapid development of new applications and experiences
  • Home Network - Begin with MR-DVR; Enable CE devices with technologies such as transcoding
  • Access Network - Move to a unified approach for all service delivery over time
