The article reports on video layer quality of service (QoS) in the broadband business in the U.S. It states that the video layer QoS involves making minimum and maximum video quality values at the service levels, and aims to use the variable bit rate (VBR) video coding. Cable operators are moving in quick pace to make additional bandwidth to provide high definition (HD) video-on-demand (VOD) titles where consumer adoption of HD television displays and the popularity of blu-ray is rising.
