Introduction
Given that IPTV is becoming an increasingly important service in the market, and that more and more ITU-T Members are facing challenges from technical as well as regulatory issues, ITU-T has received proposals to strengthen its work on IPTV standardization. As a matter of fact, some ITU-T study groups have received input contributions on IPTV. Since late 2005, ITU-T Study Group Chairmen have studied possible measures to take care of the IPTV study within ITU-T, including coordination with other SDOs (Standardization Developing Organizations). The Director of TSB decided to organize this meeting to consult with ITU-T Members and other SDOs on IPTV service and its standardization. This meeting will take place in the ITU Headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland, from 4 to 5 April 2006 inclusive.
The main purposes of this meeting are to exchange views regarding:
  • the situation and challenges of IPTV service at the national level;
  • the situation and challenges of IPTV service at the regional/global levels;
  • the actions and development of IPTV-related service by SDOs, e.g. ATIS (the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions has launched the "IPTV Interoperability Forum-IIF"), TIA (the Telecommunications Industry Association TR-47 focus is on radio interfaces, testing methodologies, performance and reliability, and equipment design guides relating to terrestrial mobile multimedia multicast), etc., that are actively developing and coordinating standards on IPTV and related services;
  • the technical and regulatory-related challenges;
  • the ITU's role and expected actions in IPTV standardization.
