How will I use all this power?

Posted on Posted in 2017 Workgroup Topic Proposals

Per Moore’s law, transmission and processing bandwidth and storage density doubles every 18 months.¬†Bandwidth required by audio and video applications, on the other hand, has historically doubled every 10 years.

We have already reached a point where many audio applications no longer strain our networks, computers and storage and the situation for video is not far behind. From here on, the gap between available performance and the requirements of our AV applications will widen rapidly, exponentially.

Keeping in mind that nature abhors a vacuum, what sorts of new AV applications can we envision to make use of these resources?

One thought on “How will I use all this power?

  1. “what sorts of new AV applications can we envision to make use of these resources?”

    Multiple cameras and microphones (even large arrays) in the same system design and presumably on the same bus.

    My impression is use cases requiring this were driving bandwidth improvements (and hard), rather than a novel way to fill a vacuum, but I’m sure that depends on the markets you’re closest to.
