MMT set for future transport10 September 2016
Researchers at Korean institute ETRI are in the Future Zone demonstrating MPEG media transport (MMT)-based Layered Time Division Multiplexing (LTDM). MMT is to succeed MPEG-2 TS as the media transport solution for broadcasting and IP network content distribution.
It can efficiently carry three different services such as 4K/UHD broadcasts, indoor/mobile HD and MPEG-H audio services within a single RF channel and all while complying with the physical layer proposals of ATSC3.0.
Uses of MMT include reducing the latency of mobile video streaming and as the transport protocol for 8K broadcasting, as trialled by Japanese broadcaster NHK.
