In today's fast-paced world, energy efficiency has become a crucial factor in reducing carbon emissions and achieving net-zero standards by 2050. The growing demand for energy, in combination with the need to curb greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, has led to a renewed focus on energy-efficient devices. It has also accelerated efforts to drive energy savings across the rest of the media supply chain.
Since electronic devices are essential in enabling the consumption of video content, it is necessary to address their energy consumption. One way to achieve this is by carrying out investigations on activities happening on the application level.
This white paper will deliver insights on how the energy efficiency of devices could be enhanced. It will provide observations and, when possible, suggest changes - whether it is from an engineering or UX perspective. Our goal is to explore ways to reduce energy consumption on OTT devices, without sacrificing performance or user experience. By optimizing the applications and using energy-efficient UI/UX strategies, we may be able to lower the overarching energy consumption.
