IEEE Paper Presentations

In-person event

Join us at IEEE BMSB 2022!

Agile Content is proud to be sponsoring the 17th annual IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting 2022 event in Bilbao, Spain!

The event which takes place from 15th to 17th June, is regarded as the premier forum for the presentation and exchange of technical advances in the rapidly converging areas of multimedia broadcasting,  telecommunications, consumer electronics, and networking technologies.

Bringing you the very best industry minds and technical expertise, Agile Content will take part in two speaker sessions. Agile Content’s Senior R&D Engineer, Eduardo Saiz and Expert Media Protocols & Codecs, Torbjörn Einarsson will be hosting two sessions that take an in-depth look at key topics examined in two of our most recent IEEE papers.

If you would like to dive deeper into any of these topics or just say hello, please don’t hesitate to schedule a meeting with our team.

IEEE Paper 167, Presentation:  

Elastic Frame Protocol

An open-source alternative to MPEG-2 TS

Speaker: Torbjörn Einarson, Expert Media Protocols & Codecs

Co-authors: Mikael Wånggren, Anders Cedronius

This paper discusses Agile Content’s new open-source Elastic Frame Protocol (EFP) and compares it with MPEG-2 Transport Stream (TS) with regards to protocol overhead, timeline and time stamps, error detection and recovery, (de)multiplexing, complex transport architectures, flexibility and use in modern packet- based transport architectures. 

MPEG-2 TS has the advantage of being almost universally supported in broadcast media transport, but EFP was found to provide significantly lower overhead, 64-bit timestamps and much better possibilities to detect and correct packets that are delivered out of order.

IEEE Paper 159, Presentation:  


Exploring the technical challenges in the adaptive generation of linear FAST channels

Speaker: Eduardo Saiz, Senior R&D Engineer, Specialist, Network Protocols  

Co-authors: Karen Troiano, Torbjörn Einarsson, Pablo Curiel  

The paper presents the VOD2Live platform architecture developed by Agile Content for the adaptive deployment of linear FAST Channels from VOD assets and live streams. The paper discusses the challenges and trade-offs that were considered to support adaptive ingest, hot editing and/or substitution of these assets on an active FAST channel without the need for live transcoding. 

In addition, a brief introduction to the automated content selection engine is provided based on collected user metrics, assets metadata and other related KPIs.
