And now the other way round…


Can TV become a ‘pull’ system?   The second presenter, Bernard Collini-Nocker, looked at providing IP content over broadcast channels.   Can users ‘participate’ in ‘broadcast channels by uploading their content?  Sound a bit like YouTube live over a TV station?   It can be  ‘user participation’ in the process of TV productions.   Why not just use the Internet for this?   Answer from Mr Collini-Nocker:  because this is not an efficient way to serve a large number of people at the same time.   There may also be good reason to provide information via broadcast channels such as disater information.      How about using ‘opportunistic data’?

Do you think this is a practical approach?
