    Streamhub combines live streaming with real-time analytics for NHK
    Louise Duffy | 01-06-2013
    Japanese broadcaster NHK is now delivering its NHK World channel to audiences in North America via Sony Blu-ray players with the help of a Streamhub app.
    The app combines 24/7 live streaming with real-time audience analytics and is available from the Opera TV Stores. Together with the development of the app, Streamhub provided NHK with a complete end-to-end solution including encoding, a content management system (CMS), a dedicated content distribution network (CDN) and audience analytics.
    The audience data collected from the app is integrated into the Streamhub platform to give real-time analytics on content consumption across devices. NHK WORLD will now be able to monitor viewing habits across online video players, iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle and Smart TV apps to better understand its global audience.
    Akihiro Tsuchiya, founder and managing director of Streamhub, said: "We are very excited to have been involved in this Smart TV app project. Adding the Streamhub analytics service to a Smart TV app means broadcasters can have a far more comprehensive understanding of their audiences worldwide."

    Wizards vs. Aliens gears for launch with second-screen app
    Michelle Clancy | 01-06-2013
    FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment and second-screen specialist Magic Ruby are gearing up to launch UK import Wizards vs. Aliens on Hub Network in the US, to be supported by a second-screen app available exclusively for iPad.
    The Wizards vs Aliens app is available now on the App Store, two days prior to the show premiere on Hub Network on 1 June, 2013.
    Consumers will have an opportunity to sync the app with actual episodes of the show, providing immersive content to enhance their viewing experience. As viewers progress through the series and continue using the sync feature, they will unlock additional content relevant to each episode and the progression of the storyline.
    Fans of the show will also become further engaged in the storyline with interactive polls, alien-inspired quizzes and collectible character sets. In addition, exclusive on-set and character photos will draw fans into the creative process behind the making of the show.
    As fans continue to engage with and explore the app, they can unlock special rewards for their efforts. There’s a commercial aspect as well of course: kids can e-mail a special “Wish List” to parents that will allow them to highlight all the Wizards vs. Aliens products they hope to receive such as T-shirts, hats, puzzles and more.
    “FremantleMedia has been a pioneer in the second-screen experience for some of the biggest entertainment shows in the world, such as American Idol and The X Factor, in turn making them two of the most socially relevant shows,” said Nicholas Dale, senior manager of interactive and mobile at FremantleMedia. “With today’s youth utilising mobile technology at an increasing rate, we’re thrilled to now be the leader in bringing a second screen experience to the kids’ market.”

    Net2TV launches on Roku
    Michelle Clancy | 01-06-2013
    Net2TV, a content aggregator that brings Web content to a TV environment, is bringing its Portico TV service to Roku boxes, offering new content and the cloud-based Portico user interface. The deal moves it towards a goal of being available on 20 million screens by year-end.
    ActiveVideo’s CloudTV client – the enabling platform for Portico – is also breaking into an entirely new market with the deployment, scaling for the first time on a mass-market CE device.

    “Let’s agree right now that this is a major milestone for ActiveVideo,” said ActiveVideo CMO Murali Nemani. “Another giant leap beyond our service provider roots and into the CE space. Validation of our technology by a major consumer brand. Deployment to five million Roku boxes - and counting. Yes, we’re smiling in Silicon Valley.”

    Rather than write a dedicated app for each device, Net2TV built its HTML5 UI once in the cloud on CloudTV and used the client to launch the service on Philips NetTVs and now Roku devices. Meanwhile, with the CloudTV client on Roku platform, service providers are able to port their TV Everywhere applications using CloudTV’s “write once, deploy everywhere” development environment, the company said.
    “We’re delighted for Net2TV,” Nemani said. “We’re ecstatic to have the CloudTV client on 5 million Roku players. And we’re looking forward to working with Net2TV to expand our mutual footprints in the CE market in the coming months.”

    Michelle Clancy | 01-06-2013
    Metaio, which offers augmented reality (AR) software, is teaming with smart-glasses vendor Vuzix to showcase a Metaio SDK running on the AR-Ready Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses, to kickstart a wearable computing initiative.
    Metaio’s AR software is used by more than 30 million consumers and 50,000 developers, powering more than 1,000 video-centric apps for enterprise, marketing, retail, publishing and industrial markets.
    “Wearable computing is the next step for natural, useful augmented reality,” said Metaio CTO Peter Meier. “In order to realise the dream of an always on, always augmented world, it is important to have software for developers ready, today, for smart glasses like the Vuzix M100.”
    “Metaio has always been at the cutting-edge of the AR industry,” added Vuzix CEO Paul Travers. “The fact that their software and apps run on this hardware out-of-the-box is further proof that the M100 Smart Glasses are already primed to deliver real-time, hands-free instant augmentations of a user’s reality.”

    Kabel BW to add HD channels
    Michelle Clancy | 01-06-2013
    German cable operator Kabel BW will add three new HD channels to its cable network serving federal state Baden-Württemberg: auto motor sport HD, Spiegel TV Wissen HD and Lust Pur HD.
    At the same time, the data rate of the fastest Internet access service will be increased to more than 100Mbps.
    To create the capacity for the expansion, Kabel BW will reshuffle the transmission frequencies on its cable network in June 2013. If the channels aren't automatically found on their new slots, customers have to do a channel search on their digital reception device.
    Further information on the changes, the timetable and the revised channel line-up can be found on http://www.kabelbw.de/info. The affected households will also receive information by letter.

    BBC Trust: iPlayer doesn’t favour Apple
    Editor 02/06/2013
    The BBC Trust has said that iPlayer updates do not prioritise iOS. In a document published online, the Trust said that it found no evidence to suggest iOS had been “unfairly favoured”.
    The watchdog was investigating a complaint suggesting that certain features were implemented on the iPhone operating system before Android – primarily the ability to download programmes offline.
    However, the Trust argues that the “complexity and expense” of producing the app for Android was to blame for its delay. It also cited Android as “fragmented” compared to iOS, as it works on almost 4,000 devices from around 600 manufacturers.
    It also said iOS app catered to “a demographic that was more likely, both in percentage terms and absolute numbers, to use BBC on-demand services”.
    “While the BBC must do all that is reasonably practicable to ensure that viewers can access its on-demand content in a range of convenient and cost-effective ways, this did not necessarily mean that it would always be expected to launch new features on different platforms simultaneously,” the report added.
    The panel concluded that it would “monitor progress” around the issue, as well as urging the BBC to stand by its commitment to introduce downloads to Android later this year in a “timely manner”.

    Sony CEO: Spin-off premature
    Editor 02/06/2013
    Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai said that it was “premature” to “speculate one way or the other” on whether the company would accept or reject the proposal from the company’s largest shareholder to spin-off as much as 20 per cent of its entertainment assets, including Sony Pictures Entertainment and the music division.
    On CNBC, Hirai said that it was “important that the board take a look at this proposal very seriously.” The idea for a spin-off is from Daniel Loeb’s Third Point hedge fund, which has acquired a 6.1 per cent stake in Sony.
    Even though there are doubts that Sony will ultimately accept the proposal, seeing value in retaining the entertainment assets as it attempts to revive its electronics business, Hirai said that outside advisers will “assist us in objectively reviewing the proposal.” Bloomberg reported that Sony is working with Morgan Stanley and Citi to explore such a proposal.
    “I think that if you look at the value of the entertainment properties for Sony, it has been a great contributor to the bottom line of the group numbers of us,” Hirai said. “We definitely want to make sure that we are able to continue a very successful business in the entertainment space, and that to me is first and foremost the most important priority, and that we continue to be able to work with the entertainment properties so that they can continue to provide a lot of great content to support our electronics business.”
    Hirai seemed to reject suggestions that Sony abandon its effort to revive its TV manufacturing, or other electronics, in favour of financial services, which has been a boon to the bottom line. He noted that they have “halved our losses” in electronics, and that it is “a matter of focus and a matter of execution.”

    Viacom dismisses McCain pay-TV reforms
    By Colin Mann 02/06/2013

    Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman has belittled attempts by US Senator John McCain to reshape pay-TV bundling practices.
    Speaking at the Nomura’s Global Media & Telecom Summit in New York, Dauman told the audience that the Senator may have garnered publicity for taking a stand against pay-TV bundling but had no support from his fellow politicians or the public. “McCain got a lot of publicity for his solo-sponsored bill, which he’s been doing for, I don’t know, 15 years now with no co-sponsors, going nowhere,” he said.
    McCain’s Television Consumer Freedom Act seeks to make channels available on an à la carte basis, where customers would pay only for the channels they want to receive, a departure from the established practice, whereby pay-TV providers bundle channels in packages so that consumers get a few premium channels together with many lesser channels.
    McCain has called bundling an “injustice being inflicted on the American people”, but Dauman suggested instead that bundling lowers prices and increases value for consumers because it allows smaller channels to invest in content with the security of distribution. “Consumers are enjoying what many have called the golden age of television,” Dauman said. “It’s good value for consumers.”

    Spain prefers Internet to TV
    From David Del Valle in Madrid

    Spaniards prefer surfing through the Internet to watching TV to amuse themselves, according to a report from the consultancy firm Deloitte. The study with a 2,000 sample reveals that 55 per cent of the surveyed choose Internet rather than the TV in Spain in line with Italy but unlike other countries such as Germany, France and the UK.
    The availability of content on the Internet and the proliferation of piracy are the main reasons behind the fact that Spaniards prefer this media, as says Luis Jimenez, from Deloitte who adds though that the access to free-of-charge content through TV is easier than in other countries as the pay TV model is not working well.
    Almost 80 per cent of Spaniards simultaneously use two or more screens of which 30 per cent surf through the Internet, 25 per cent use email and 22 per cent use social networking whilst watching TV.
