Dynamic savings in energy


Pablo Angueira and Javier Morgade from the Basque University took up the baton, first raised earlier in the conference, by Ulrich Reimers, of ‘dynamic broadcasting’. The basic idea of which is to deliver programmes either by broadcasting or broadband Internet depending on whether a few or many viewers want to see it. We could imagine that, taken overall, the system would be more energy efficient that either broadcast or broadband individually. The Basque team explained that this was so. There tests have shown something like 40% energy saving with dynamic broadcasting under certain conditions.
