No VP9 support? Disappointing.

Correct. With no VP6 blessing from the world's leading consumer chip company makes me skeptical of VP6 future.

DIAL doesn't sound compelling to me, but I can imagine someday we will get to easy and interesting ways to share related content on devices in proximity in the living room and the public square (with digital signage and handsets). Meanwhile, it looks like Taiwan has its Broadcom in Mediatek.

Thanks to MediaTek, we just might finally get some reasonable smart TVs. Most of what I read in this piece sounds great. But I'm with Rick. I don't so much dispute that some handheld gadget to TV content sharing is a good idea, for certain content. What I utterly fail to understand is the notion that TV manufacturers would capitulate to Apple or anyone else for a "discovery and launch" of Internet TV content. As to DIAL per se, I suppose it's intent is to avoid having to use that short range 60 GHz "wireless HDMI" link, between handheld gadget and smart TV. So it allows the TV to initiate the same Internet sessions as the handheld, slaved to the handheld, but not by a simple uncompressed high capacity video/audio link. So the Internet strteams go directly to the TV from the broadband modem and WiFi (or other) internal network link. Mostly to that, I say bah. Just design the smart TV smartly. Do that discovery from the TV. Use some imagination and creativity.

I think DIAL is just an easy to launch an app on mobile phone to control the TV. The streaming is still from internet to TV directly, not from phone.

Netflix-Samsung UHDTV collaboration might be a sign of better proliferation of UHDTV. A partnership between TV makers and movies production company will certainly give a strong push. There is always a solution to get better resolution - interpolation. I'm sure various TV makers are looking into it if they aren't already using the technology to improve the picture quality.

Interpolation would be required to get normal SDTV or HDTV content onto UHDTV sets, certainly. But I don't think this creates more "resolution." Because the information content has not changed. So you get a smooth-as-glass image, but no more actual detail. There are algorithms to enhance such interpolated images, edges mainly, so perhaps that could be called enhanced resolution. Although it's manufactured, not real.

Streaming content from a mobile to the big TV is only of minor interest. Far more interesting would be the ability to stream content from my cable DVR to a tablet or smartphone.

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
