In following article, the Los Angeles Times about the use of High Tech in Elder Care.

Seems in the US we will see the same evolution.


In order to be able to view video over the network, following bandwidths would be required if we were not to compress. Please find below the raw maximum bandwidth that would be required as well as typical bandwidth after compression.

Uncompressed data

Standard Common name Pixels Frames/second Bandwidth/second
1080p Full HD 1920x1080x24 50 2,48 Gbit
1080i Full HD 1920x1080x24 25 1,24 Gbit
720p HD 1280x720x24 50 500 Mbit
576i PAL/SECAM 625x?x? 25

Network speed

Gbit interface: 1 Gbit/second
Wireless 11N: 150 Mbit/second (or up to 450 Mbit/second on 3 channels)

So if we would not compress data, only a Gbit interface would be able to display 720p. Wireless, we would not display anything. The secret lies in compression, and compression and decompression requires processing power.
