SINGAPORE, June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei and 24 partners, including content providers, carriers, terminal providers, chip manufacturers, and evaluation agencies, jointly held the Asia Pacific 4K business forum in Singapore during Communic Asia 2016. The theme of the forum is "collaboration for positive business cycle in the video industry," where the attendees got together to discuss on deepening cooperation to promote the video industry development for the Asia Pacific region.
As the ultra-broadband and video industry rapidly develops, video has become a basic service for carriers. Over 50% of carriers worldwide have started developing their own video service. In the 4K era, UHD video services place higher requirements on the end-to-end capabilities of an industry chain, which calls for a platform for dialogues among the video industry chain. The attendees all agreed that a new business model of "content+operation+pipe+terminal" can help carriers with the business success of their video strategies and fuel the video industry development in the Asian Pacific region.
"The video industry is embracing both opportunities and challenges in terms of content manufacturing, 4K terminal popularization, service operation, and user experience guarantee," said Zeng Xingyun, Vice President of Huawei Fixed Network Product Line. "With positive business cycle of 4K videos as the starting point, this forum can promote cross-domain dialogues in the video industry and facilitate cooperation in content, terminal, operation, network, and technical services. This can optimize network guarantee on end-user video experience and facilitate business development of the video industry."
Jung Myung Jin, vice president of BOE, expressed: "Customizing the 4K TV service for the carrier market can promote UHD video service development by popularizing 4K TV. Furthermore, TV terminal is an extension of network pipes, which can visualize end-user video experience through real-time monitoring."
Mihai, CEO of Grey Juice Lab, said: "VOD services are progressively transferred to 4K. It brings pressure to network for more bandwidth and traffic requirement. The content provider can use flexible business model to cooperate with operators and achieve a win-win situation."
Broadband infrastructure is the basis of video service development. "U-vMOS has provided quantified standards to measure user experience," stated Suwanto Gunawan, chairperson of Indonesia FTTH Association. "In the future, carriers need to base their broadband network construction on U-vMOS of 4.0. This guarantees network performance while at the same time improves user experience through industry cooperation."
Huawei, the leading ultra-broadband solution provider, has proactively pursued efforts in 4K networks through continuous research on network transmission technologies and video experience guarantee. Huawei would like to help carriers construct networks with the best video experience and build an open ecosystem through collaboration with industry partners.
