Major accomplishments

  • IPTV: approved technical paper with terminology for a variety of IP-based TV-related multimedia services, and a revised version of ITU-T H.761 (Ginga-NCL), which is one of the tools for providing interactivity in digital television and IPTV
  • Digital signage: the second ITU-T Recommendation concerning Digital Signage was completed, focusing on what is necessary to deliver disaster information services during emergencies using standardized digital signage systems. Also approved was a Technical Paper on use case scenarios for digital signage.
    • ITU-T H.785.0 (ex H.DS-DISR) "Digital signage: Requirements of disaster information services" [TD 278/Plen]
    • ITU-T HSTP.DS-UCIS "Technical Paper: Digital signage: Use-cases of interactive services" (New) [TD 276/Plen]
  • E-health: During this meeting we were successful in approving one additional Technical Paper, ITU-T HSTP-H810 "Introduction to the ITU-T H.810 Continua Design Guidelines", giving overview of ITU-T H.810 series, and in starting the approval process of a suite of 32 new e-health Recommendations that further enrich the ITU-T H.810 series with compliance test suites encompassing the entire ITU-T H.810 series architecture, including all health, medical and fitness device systems, their transports and their interfaces. These Recommendations enable pre-certification testing of ITU-T H.810 via programmes like the one run by Continua. Technical Paper ITU-T HSTP.H810 describes ways in which personal health devices can work together, their data be consolidated and integrated seamlessly with a variety of health information systems.
  • Accessibility: Conditional endorsement of ISO/IEC Guide 71 Guide for addressing accessibility in standards, as ITU-T H-Series Supplement 17. A final evaluation of the text, after resolution of comments in ISO/IEC of the last balloting stage of Guide 71, is expected to be taken by the SG16 management at the end of the 3rd quarter 2014. [TD 284/Plen]
  • Audio coding: Two upgrades to ITU-T audio coding Recommendations were Consented, with floating point implementations of stereo superwideband specifications for ITU-T G.711.1 and ITU-T G.722 that will improve their applicability and increase interoperability with existing implementations
  • Telepresence: the very first two Telepresence Recommendations were Consented:
    • ITU-T  F.734 (ex F.TPS-Reqs) "Definitions, requirements, and use cases for Telepresence Systems" provides definitions, use cases and functional requirements for telepresence systems. Telepresence is an interactive audio-visual communications experience between remote locations, where the users enjoy a strong sense of realism and presence between participants by optimizing a variety of attributes. [TD 234/Plen]
    • ITU-T H.420 (ex F/H.TPS-Arch) "Telepresence system architecture" describes a high level telepresence system architecture describing how telepresence endpoints, multi-point control units, call and resource controllers, gateways, and management systems are used in a communication session to provide telepresence. It also provides guidance on telepresence room design. [TD 241R1/Plen]
  • ITS: new ITU-T Technical Paper ITU-T HSTP-CITS-Req was approved, containing global intelligent transportation system (ITS) communication requirements. The text was originally developed by the inter-SDO platform known as the Collaboration on ITS Communication Standards (CITS).
  • Video coding: The 2nd edition of ITU-T H.265 HEVC was Consented It includes three important types of extensions of HEVC coding capabilities, that will increase the quality of compressed video and better user experience:
    1. Format range extensions of HEVC, known as RExt, adding improved colour representations. RExt includes support for higher bit-depths and enhanced chroma formats, including the use of full-resolution chroma.
    2. Scalable extensions of HEVC, known as SHVC, enabling better performance for dynamic video streaming on networks with varying transmission conditions and other scenarios involving multiple bit-rate services. SHVC adds support for embedded bitstream scalability in which different levels of encoding quality are efficiently supported by adding or removing layered subsets of encoded data.
    3. Multiview extensions of HEVC, known as MV-HEVC, as the first native support for 3D video encoding in HEVC. It provides an efficient representation of video content with multiple camera views and optional depth map information, such as for 3D stereoscopic and autostereoscopic video applications.
  • Conformance testing of image and video coding standards: A pair of new specifications that are used for conformance testing of ITU-T H.265 HEVC video were consented at this meeting:
