1  Scopep. 6

The present document provides an analysis of the future video capability requirements of streaming and multicast/broadcast services. The purpose of the present document is two-fold. On the one hand, it studies the options to upgrade the minimal requirements for video reception and decoding. On the other hand, it studies use cases for support of more advanced UEs. The ultimate target of this study item is to recommend solutions for efficiently providing video support commensurate with UE and user capabilities and needs in PSS and MBMS services.

4.1  Introductionp. 8

This Technical Report studies use cases and solutions for both video scalability and 3D stereoscopic video and investigates their performance in a variety of setups using 3GPP's streaming and multicast/broadcast services. Subclause 5.1 introduces use cases on 2D service, and the codec solutions enabling the use cases are described in subclause 6.1.1. Subclause 6.1.2 introduces some applications integrating the 2D solutions and codecs, and the performance of the solutions is evaluated in subclause 6.1.3. Stereoscopic 3D use cases are introduced in subclause 5.2. Enabling codecs for the 3D use cases are described in subclause 6.2.1, and the performance is evaluated in subclause 6.2.2. This document includes two attachment files which are the config files used in the evaluations of codecs. Annexes for helping understanding the simulation conditions are also included. Finally conclusion based on the study of this TR is presented in subclause 7.
