Question 13/16 summary

The report of Question 13/16 "Multimedia application platforms and end systems for IPTV" was found in TD 173/WP2. Question 13/16 was chaired by the Rapporteur, Mr Marcelo Moreno (Brazil). Question 13/16 experts met in the context of IPTV-GSI event. Q13/16 advanced the work on nine draft Recommendations and the text of two draft Technical Papers. The Question prepared four LS (TD 186R1/WP2) and plans on holding two interim e-meetings to progress on the most active work items as well as prepare and send work items ITU-T H.721 (V2), H.761 (V3) and H.IPTV-MAFR.14 for Consent at the Study Group 16 meeting in Sapporo, Japan.​

Qu​​estion 14/16 summary

The report of Question 14/16 "Digital signage systems and services" was found in TD 174/WP2. Q14/16 addressed in eight sessions during IPTV-GSI event under the chairmanship of the Rapporteur, Mr Kazunori Tanikawa (NEC, Japan), with the assistance of the Associate Rapporteur, Mr Shin-Gak Kang (ETRI, Rep. of Korea).  The group reviewed seven liaison statements and 25 contributions on digital signage: architecture, alerting, disaster information services, metadata, interactive services, and glossary. Q14/16 also held a joint session with Q13/16 to discuss topics of common interest, and terminal device discovery in particular.

Question 25/​​​16 summary

The report of Question 25/16 "IoT applications and services" was found in TD 175/WP2. Question 25/16 was chaired by the Rapporteur, Mr Hyoung-Jun Kim (ETRI, Rep. of Korea), and discussed 17 Contributions. During the meeting, Q25/16 decided to start one new draft Recommendation ITU-T F.MS-ref on a reference model for machine socialization. Q25/16 made progress on eight on-going draft Recommendations. At the meeting, Q25/16 produced ten output documents including the meeting report, the initial text for ITU-T F.MS-ref and eight updated texts of on-going draft Recommendations. The Question did not prepare any outgoing liaison statements and did not plan any interim activities before the next Study Group 16 meeting in Sapporo, Japan.

Question 26/1​6 summary

The report of Question 26/16 "Multimedia application platforms and end systems for IPTV" was found in TD 176R1/WP2. The acting Rapporteur, Mr Masahito Kawamori (Japan), chaired the meeting. Q26/16 matters were addressed in six sessions, one of which was as part of the newly created Intersector Rapporteur Group on Media Accessibility (IRG-AVA). It received three contributions and produced five output documents. We agreed to create two new work items: FSTP.UMAA "Use cases for assisting people with disabilities using mobile applications" and H.ACC-RCAD "Requirements for Captioning and Audio Description [for Accessibility]". Experts could see two showcases on accessibility, accompanied by presentations to the experts: Egypt's accessibility strategy and "Listen with your Eyes" TV (Organization of Broadcasting for People with Disability, Japan). Some discussion was held on ISO/IEC Guide 71. Some concerns were expressed on terminology used in the guide, but due to advanced balloting stage it was felt too late for ITU to propose modifications. It was felt that comments could be made during the public consultation phase of the documents; two liaison statements were prepared on this topic (TD 187R1/WP2; later issued as COM16-LS81 and COM16-LS82). The Question plans on holding interim e-meetings to progress the draft of HSTP.ACC-TERM before the next Study Group 16 meeting in Sapporo, Japan. The possibility of an IRG-AVA during the ITU-R SG6 meeting was proposed, to be confirmed at a later date. Q26/16 experts will meet next during the Study Group 16 meeting in Sapporo, Japan. (The third IRG-AVA meeting is also planned to take place at the same location.)

Question 27/16 su​​mmary

As the meeting was still ongoing at the time of the WP2/16 meeting, review of the Q27/16 report and results will be done at the next Study Group 16 meeting in Sapporo, Japan.

Question 28/16 su​mmary

The report of Question 28/16 "Multimedia framework for e-health applications" was found in TD 177/WP2. ITU-T Q28/16 held its meeting at Geneva, Switzerland, on 24-28 February 2014, as part of IPTV GSI event. The group adopted the agenda in TD 73/IPTV-GSI. The Rapporteur, Mr Masahito Kawamori (Japan), chaired the meeting. The results of various e-meetings that were used to progress the draft of H.MEDX in TD 181/WP2 was reviewed and approved by Q28/16 experts. The group proposed Consent of ITU-T H.860 (ex H.MEDX) and agreed to start work on 32 new work items, which define conformance testing suites for the ITU-T H.810 Continua Design Guideline, plus an ITU-T H.810 overview paper. The group prepared two outgoing liaison statements (TD 185R1/WP2) and plans no interim activities before the next Study Group 16 meeting.​
