TVC (www.tv3.cat) is the public broadcaster of Catalonia (6 DTT channels, 4 Radio stations, Internet, mobile/smartphones, etc.). TVC was founded in 1983 with the mission of preserving the Catalan language and culture, and belongs to the Corporació Catalana de Mitjans Audiovisuals (Catalan Audiovisual Media Corporation), the public group managing TV, radio and online services of the Catalan government.
The role of TVC in the project is to lead pilot 3, which will be done in the region of Catalonia, exploring the possibilities of multiple HD video streams. Leveraging MPEG-DASH and the newest HbbTV capabilities, pilot viewers will be able to interactively choose from several video sources to provide different points of view, rich accessibility features and higher quality on top of the broadcast-level TVC content. Different networks will be tested to evaluate quality and response time gains using MPEG-DASH.
