The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) announced the approval of three standards-development projects at the CES 2012 currently ongoing in Las Vegas.
The three development projects are IEEE P1907.1 “Standard for Network-Adaptive Quality of Experience (QoE) Management Scheme for Real-Time Mobile Video Communications,” IEEE P2200 “Standard Protocol for Stream Management in Media Client Devices” and IEEE P3333 “Standard for the Quality Assessment of Three Dimensional (3D) Displays, 3D Contents and 3D Devices based on Human Factors.
IEEE P1907.1 is being developed to define an end-to-end QoE management scheme for real-time video communication systems. IEEE P2200 is being launched to enable more efficient downloading and streaming of high-quality content through the standardization of time-shifted caching to mobile devices. IEEE P3333 is designed to establish methods of quality assessment of 3D displays, contents and devices based on human factors such as photosensitive seizures, motion sickness and visual fatigue.
Video already accounts for more than half of all global mobile data traffic, and it is forecast to assume a steadily larger share of bandwidth on mobile networks in the coming years of growth. Per the Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) Global Data Traffic Forecast, 2010-2015, video is expected to record a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 104 per cent from 2010 through 2015—by the end of that year accounting for 66 per cent of all global mobile data traffic.
