HDTV Bandwidth Requirements

HDTV Bandwidth Requirements

How much bandwidth does HDTV require? There is some disagreement about this simple fact. Part of the problem is that the compression standards are being improved, and part is wishful thinking on the part of IPTV promoters.

? HDTV requires something on the order of 10 mbps if you want to watch it in “real time”. Kelly Adams on February 10th, 2006

? HDTV has already been compressed down to 20 mbps. Emerging standards might cut that to 10 mbps. But with high compression, image quality suffers. John George Sept 2006

? HDTV currently requires 12-19 mbps of bandwidth per channel with MPEG-2 compression. When the new compression technologies become available in 2006, HDTV is expected to require 6.5 – 8 mbps per channel. — Piyush Sevalila — Ikanos Communications 2006

? Live HDTV requires 8 to 10 mbps.– Dave Burstein of DSL Prime and Future of TV July 24, 2006
