The mission of IPTV Focus Group is to coordinate and promote the development of global IPTV standards, taking into account the existing work of the ITU study groups as well as Standards Developing Organizations, Fora and Consortia. These proceedings follow the ITU-T IPTV meeting, which set out to define IPTV; carry out a review and gap analysis of existing standards and ongoing work; coordinate existing standardization activities; harmonize the development of new standards and encourage the interoperability with existing systems.



Preface and Foreword

Two years ago my predecessor Houlin Zhao convened a public meeting to discover what the market need for IPTV standards was. The answer was unequivocally: that ITU should take the lead in coordinating and developing global standards to enable rapid progress and to avoid market fragmentation. As a result, the IPTV Focus Group was established in April 2006.
