 Central aim of organisation
Integrate/expand digital broadcast and IP based multimedia systems, networks, protocols, and applications

 Briefly describe your organisation
We are a research group at the Department of Computer Sciences. Our current main areas of interest are satellite communications, DVB/MHP, intelligent caching, and IP multicast work. Our expertise includes:

* Optimized protocols for satellite broadcast (DVB-2G) and interactive (DVB-RCS) communications
* Analysis and design of DVB and IP based protocols
* Digital Video Broadcast (DVB)-based gateway architectures
* Multimedia Home Platform (MHP/GEM) application and services
* Reliable multicast transport protocols
* Multicast web caching technologies
* Design of network communication hardware and software
* Traffic monitoring, measurement and analysis

The group operates a development laboratory where IP/DVB and MHP tests can be carried out, interconnecting MHP Playout servers with an IP/DVB encapsulator/multiplexer and several set-top boxes and and PCs over three DVB transmission chains (DVB-S,-T,-C) in a local loop trial environment. Several analysers for TS/MPEG-2 level and MHP are available for monitoring and verification
