MobiTV Unveils LTE Broadcast Demo at 2013 International CES

MobiTV Brings Localized Broadcasting to Life and Showcases the Future of Mobile Video Streaming

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MobiTV, a global leader in enabling delivery of live and on-demand TV everywhere, will reveal demonstrations of its video streaming application utilizing LTE Broadcast technology enabled by Qualcomm Labs, Inc.'s LTE Broadcast Software Development Kit and Middleware at 2013 International CES (Jan. 8 – 11 January). Qualcomm Labs is a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated. The first video streaming solution to allow mobile network operators (MNOs) to offer both unicast and multicast broadcast capabilities, LTE Broadcast technology allows MNOs to localize when and where content is aired by offering broadcast services that can be turned on and off based on demand. LTE Broadcast technology optimizes network content delivery, making it more efficient than traditional broadcast networks while maintaining a seamless user experience. During the show, attendees will experience a preview of how these new capabilities will shape the future of mobile video streaming.

The MobiTV LTE Broadcast demonstrations will take place in the South Hall of the LVCC in the Qualcomm booth (#30313). Each demonstration will air an interactive mosaic of content from four different channels, highlighting LTE Broadcast's ability to meet the need to watch multiple concurrent events or camera angles for a given event. The demonstrations will also showcase the delivery of correlated data files that complement the broadcast content by offering information relevant to each channel in surrounding data boxes.

"In order to keep pace with the content demands imposed by today's connected device paradigm, you need a highly efficient, scalable, one-to-many broadcast solution," said Charlie Nooney, chairman and CEO at MobiTV. "By leveraging Qualcomm Labs' LTE Broadcast Middleware and SDK, MobiTV's LTE Broadcast application, will transform the way networks can deliver live TV to mobile devices by marrying unicast and multicast capabilities to create a dynamic and personalized content experience optimized for high concurrency events."

The high volume of mobile usage at CES makes it the ideal setting to demonstrate MobiTV LTE Broadcast capabilities by simulating network needs during major events or in highly trafficked areas. The show also provides a backdrop for getting a first-hand look at the way the mobility of users and devices have created a technology landscape driven by a need for constant interconnectivity.

"Qualcomm Labs' LTE Broadcast Middleware and SDK enables companies, like MobiTV, to develop applications that efficiently and seamlessly deliver network content, which is critical in today's mobile society where consumers demand content anytime, anywhere," said Mazen Chmaytelli, senior director of business development for Qualcomm Labs. "Qualcomm Labs is proud to be working with MobiTV to bring this advanced solution to market and looks forward to further expanding the LTE broadcast ecosystem to provide services for the connected world."

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination? This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycle for machine learning in production. From this analysis it builds a framework for seeing where machine learning on a graph can be advantageous.'
