Richard Chernock, director of technology at Triveni Digital, will discuss the emergence of non-real-time (NRT) services during a presentation Nov. 1 in Washington, D.C., at the 57th Annual IEEE Broadcast Symposium.
The presentation will introduce the basic concepts and technical requirements of NRT services, as well as provide illustrative scenarios.
NRT content is content delivered in advance of use and stored in the receiving device for access on-demand. Such content can include either traditional TV fare or customized information targeted to other platforms, such as PCs, handheld media devices or even commercial platforms. Typical applications for NRT services include push VOD; news, information, and weather services; personalized TV channels; music distribution; reference information; and applications or games, whether advertiser-sponsored or sold by subscription.
