Recently, various high-quality AV services such as UHDTV have begun to increase as broadcasting technology evolves, and various broadcasting standards have been defined. Among the various broadcasting standards, there are representative delivery technologies which are DASH/ROUTE and MMTP. DASH/ROUTE and MMTP are adopted as delivery standards for UHD broadcasting in south Korea, currently. DASH segment and MPU are segmented units including media data, which are delivered via DASH/ROUTE and MMTP, respectively. In this paper, we analyzed structure of DASH segment and MPU and propose a verification system which enables converting DASH segments to MPUs and delivering them via MMTP.
