PERSONALCASTING - Personalization on Datacasting

Roberto D. Amaral, Francisco Cercas, Carlos Gonçalves

Abstract

Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) allows the simultaneous transmission of different digital contents with the video signal, i.e. datacasting. This become possible due to coding and compression technologies used to process the signal, not previously available with analogue technology. This subject created the discussion about the digital dividend, which addresses the best way to use the spectrum, so as to improve its efficiency. This article presents the concept of Personalcasting applied to data, which is sent simultaneously by DTT to the entire coverage area, while directing contents to specific users. This provides a better use of the DTT spectrum, due to high data volume that will be used with datacasting
