Specialist Task Force 468:
4K Video and High Speed Internet Services transmission
over Powerline - Phase 1

What we do:
This new STF place ETSI at the crossroad of 3 emergent technologies
(MIMO-PLT, HEVC/H265, 4K/UHDTV) for new video services distribution in Connected
Home environment filling the gap between standards from other SDO.
This STF is plan as the continuation of STF 410 on MIMO-PLT and filling the gap
between MIMO-PLT channels capacity and new services as 4K video for forthcoming
For more details, see our
Terms of Reference
Why we do it:
The implications for future video services will be significant and impact on
the Internet traffic growing.
This year TV broadcasters and programmers will need to embrace new advances in
technology like the HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding). This new video codec
HEVC have some implications on Powerline Home Networks as the reach for HD video
streaming or VOD services.
The new forthcoming 4K video streaming and VOD services for UHDTV also require
high performance from PLT modems as based on MIMO-PLT technologies and is
therefore a centre of focus for future work of TC PLT. The technology will start
a new era of premium quality services for VOD and streaming of 4K video on UHDTV
with cable, satellite and FTTH networks gateways and set-top-boxes.
Stakeholders include ETSI vendors, semiconductor suppliers, service providers,
internet content providers and users. The planned work may involve relations to
groups and organisations like ITU-T SG16 and ISO/MPEG standards, ETSI-Broadcast,
ETSI-E2NA, ETSI-ATTM, IEEE.
How we do it:
This STF proceed by step by step approach to investigate new video
compression standards impact on Powerline Networks coverage and produce
technical guidance to the Powerline telecommunication vendors to cope with very
high rate services over Powerline communication.
The ETSI Report will provide in a first phase the necessary information that
allows develop standards to enable these services.
