Subject: Hi Def Video via DSLRs driving bandwidth demand
For IP if you wish.
I am wondering what happens to the business models of the Cablecos and
Telcos when they are confronted with literally millions of consumer
cameras that produce Hi Def TV files? These cameras are expected to
be "game changing" in the digital photography world, but I expect that
they are also "game changing" when it comes to bandwidth demand/
consumption, citizens news reporting, and so forth. At least two new
cameras have this capability already: 1] the Nikon D90 and 2] the
Canon 5D mark II.
See, for example, this early experiment with Hi Def video made with
Canon's new 5D Mark II, a cameras costing less than $3,000.
How you gonna keep the bits down on the farm once these toys, er
tools, are widely diffused into the consumer base? Will business
models based upon throttling bandwidth demand actually work? I don't
think so. If not, then what?
