Embedding Metadata in Analog Video Frame for Distance Education

Arindam Saha, Aniruddha Sinha, Arpan Pal, and Anupam Basu

Abstract—Limited infrastructural support and lack of adequate teachers demand for a distance education system which can be used to augment the learning of students especially in rural areas of developing countries including India. We propose novel technological methods to create a solution for distance education which uses existing wide spread satellite broadcast TV network. The so lution has two additional components namely a content creator in the broadcast end and a low cost Home Infotainment Platform (HIP) device in the user end. Apart from the video and audio, the associated metadata related to the question-answers (QA) and Electronic Program Guide (EPG) of the tutorials are also transmitted from the broadcast end. A new method is proposed to embed the metadata as part of the video frame so that it is accessible in the analog input of the HIP client box. A detailed analysis on the effect of noise demonstrates the sustainability of the metadata in the analog video frame for the existing end to end TV broadcast network.

Index Terms—Distance education, metadata in analog video, satellite broadcast.
