    TechniSat and TKS go for Motorola Dreamgallery and Verimatrix
    June 4, 2013 10.32 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    The cloud-based Dreamgallery middleware offered by Motorala and Verimatrix digital rights management are the core of the hybrid DVB-C set-top box that TechniSat supplies to TKS Telepost Kabel-Service Kaiserslautern, a subsidiary of the Kabel Deutschland Group.
    TKS has chosen TechniSat´s new platform which can be flexibly customized to different middleware, CA systems, or DRMs. The new TechniStar K supplied to TKS uses Dreamgallery middleware and Verimatrix as DRM specially prepared for easyTV, their state of the art IPTV package using DRM and middleware.
    Dreamgallery is a cloud-based middleware which enables the operator to host their own services including UI and EPG on a centralized, cloud-based server on their own network. This together with the use of HTML5 provides the added benefit quick and easy customization.
    Verimatrix is securing the IPTV part of the television offer.
    According to Axel Grün, TKS Director of Operations, the Technistar K perfectly meets the special requirements of the new TKS easyTV product line: “EasyTV is a scalable IPTV service that provides state-of-the-art entertainment on a multi-device and multi-screen platform. With the flexibility and high quality of the hybrid Technistar K set-top box, we are able to provide our customers an unrivaled entertainment experience in digital TV services, IPTV streaming, and ‘on demand’ services”.

    Jana Bennett to head up A&E bio and LMN in the US
    NewsPippa Considine04 June 2013
    Jana Bennett, former president BBC Worldwide Networks, is to join A+E Networks in the US as president, bio and LMN channels.

    She left the BBC last year as part of a restructuring of BBC Worldwide. In her new position, Bennett will oversee the development, strategies, marketing, publicity and brand development for LMN and bio channels. She will report to Nancy Dubuc, president and ceo, A+E Networks.

    "Jana is an experienced industry veteran who knows how to build and grow brands and create long-running franchises," says Dubuc. "Over the coming year, our goal is to grow our emerging networks into the powerful platforms that History, A&E and Lifetime have become and Jana is the person to take us there."

    Bennett says, "I relish the opportunity to shape and grow bio and LMN as an important part of Nancy's dynamic plans for the company. I'm looking forward to crossing the Atlantic to work with such a talented team."

    Bennett is leaving her role as president, BBC Worldwide Networks and global BBC iPlayer at BBC Worldwide. Previously she was director of BBC Television responsible for the BBC's portfolio of six free to air channels in the UK.

    In her role at BBC Worldwide, she was responsible for 16 branded channels across 100 countries, reaching 380 million subscriber homes. In digital media, she led the development and launch of the subscription VOD service, BBC IPlayer in 16 overseas markets.

    As an American Brit, Bennett has been successful both in the UK and the US. Bennett previously held the position of evp/gm, TLC Network and Discovery Pictures. While at Discovery Communications she redefined and rebranded TLC network, launching hit series Trading Spaces, What Not to Wear, Junkyard Wars and Street Magic.

    A&E's original programming content continues to break records across cable and broadcast. Most recently, The Bible and Vikings gave History the number one mini and number one new cable series respectively. A&E's Duck Dynasty's season finale became A&E's number one telecast of all time with 9.6 million viewers, beating American Idol.

    Creative Skillset's new fund to offer £32m
    NewsPippa Considine04 June 2013
    Creative Skillset’s new Skills Investment Fund (SIF) is to offer a total of £32m.

    The fund addresses skills gaps and shortages in the growth sectors of film, animation, high-end TV, games and vfx.

    Industry co-investment to meet identified priority skills needs will be matched by the treasury, in the shape of up to £16m over two years. For every £1 invested by industry, Creative Skillset can match £1 from the SIF, leading to a total of £32m.

    Creative Skillset is working with all five sectors to identify priority skills areas and ways to address skills gaps and shortages, including a new cross sector employer Challenge Fund, due to be launched later this year.

    Each sector will have an advisory skills council to identify key skills shortages and develop action plans to oversee the collection of the fund and how it is invested.

    The SIF will invest in a range of initiatives, from new entrant training to continuous development for professionals already in the industry. These could include bootcamps and apprenticeships, subsidised training schemes, short courses and shadowing and mentoring programmes.

    The film, high-end TV and animation sectors will contribute to the SIF through production levies and other co-investment. The games industry will co-invest via a number of schemes, including investing in training for professionals and supporting trainees via a pilot to be launched next month. Creative Skillset is in discussion with the vfx sector to agree the best way forward.

    Further details of how industry can co-invest and how individuals can develop their skills and careers will be announced over the next month.

    Film4 partners with Vimeo to release upcoming shorts
    NewsPippa Considine04 June 2013
    Film4 is partnering with Vimeo for the release of two of its upcoming short films, Kibwe Tavares’ Jonah and Shynola’s Dr East. The move forms part of Film4.0’s strategy to reach wider audiences for its shorts and gain exposure for the filmmakers behind them.

    Jonah, a live-action/animation about the cost of human progress, was released online on Friday 31st May, following its international premiere at Sundance in January. (See the film embedded below). Written by Jack Thorne (The Fades, This is England ’86) and produced by Ivana MacKinnon, Jonah is Tavares’ second short after his Robots of Brixton, which received half a million hits online.

    Dr Easy, a London-set short film based on Matthew De Abaitua’s novel The Red Men, is released online on Friday 21st June, the day after its world premiere at Edinburgh International Film Festival. Directed by three-man directing team Shynola – known for their commercials, music videos and title sequences – and produced by Ally Gipps at Warp Films, it stars Tom Hollander and the voice of Geraldine James, and was shot by DoP Barry Ackroyd.

    Jonah and Dr Easy will be available to watch online at Film4.com and Vimeo, where they can be embedded by other sites, with both platforms heavily promoting their release.

    Anna Higgs, head of Film4.0, says, “Jonah and Dr. Easy totally epitomise what brilliant shorts can do: tell bold, impactful stories with a remarkable and distinctive visual style, and showcase outstanding new filmmaking talent. We’re constantly looking for new ways to reach audiences, so it makes total sense to partner with Vimeo to bring these films to as many people as possible online.”

    Dr Easy
    Michael (Tom Hollander) is a broken man with a gun, surrounded by armed police. A robot with a medical degree is dispatched – but can it save him? Dr Easy is written and directed by Shynola, the directing team of Jason Groves, Richard Kenworthy and Chris Harding, who have created films for bands such as Radiohead, Coldplay, Beck, Blur and Queens of the Stone Age. They are responsible for the titular guide in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the title sequence for The IT Crowd, and the title sequence for Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs The World. Dr Easy is their first short film, and they are currently developing a feature film, The Red Men.

    Dr Easy is directed by Jason Groves, Chris Harding and Richard Kenworthy (Shynola). It is produced by Ally Gipps for Warp Films and is backed by Film4. It stars Tom Hollander, the voice of Geraldine James, and Alex MacQueen.

    Dr Easy will be released online on Friday 21st June

    Jonah
    Jonah tells the story of Zanzibarian beach boy Mbwana, hungry for the future, who creates a myth that transforms his small town into a tourist hot spot. When the reality turns out to be far from his dreams, he sets out to destroy the town – or himself.

    Jonah is produced by Stray Bear Productions from the imagination of Factory Fifteen. It is backed by Film4, C4, BFI and Shine Pictures, in association with Jellyfish Pictures, and stars Daniel Kaluuya, Louis Mahoney and Malachi Kirby. It is Tavares' second short film, and he is currently in development with Film4 for his first feature.

    BBC to redevelop Maida Vale recording studios
    NewsPippa Considine04 June 2013
    The BBC is looking to redevelop its Maida Vale recording studios in West London.

    Plans are being drawn up to rebuild the studios, estimated at a cost of between £15m to £40m, using money generated by the 1.33 acre site.

    Built in 1909, the building was acquired by the BBC in the early 1930s to meet public demand for broadcasting. It is now home to the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Singers, the Radio 1 Live Lounge and “In Session” recordings.

    The BBC is working with commercial property consultants Lambert Smith Hampton for ideas for the 1.33 acre freehold site.

    Unified rights magament is key
    June 5, 2013 09.54 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    With multiscreen services fast developing consumers will demand to access all content on all devices.
    “It is not acceptable to consumers if people can view content on one device and not on another, so unified rights management is key,” said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix at this morming’s breakfast session The many faces of hybrid.
    “And it is particularly important for cloud based service, which can be reached from anywhere in the world. Of course it is not only what the operator allows, but also a question of content rights owner as different owners might have different rules.”
    Eric Meijer, Eric Meijer, senior product developer and project manager at Ziggo, told the audience that Holland’s largest cable operator has chosen to offer all interactive and multiscreen services in the cloud.
    Ziggo really didn’t have a choice, as there is a large population of legacy set-tops out there. “We decided to bring all functionality is in the cloud, and the equipment at the customers’ home only has a small client.”
    The includes having the user interface in the cloud giving the various devices the same interface, so the iPad has the same look and feel as the set-top with everything streaming from the cloud.”
    At an earlier stage, Ziggo also introduced – actually as the very first cable operator in the world – CI+, which allows viewers to connect directly to the cable network with their TV set without a set-top box.
    Liberty Global has a “somewhat different approach,” said Daniel Hesselbarth, senior manager interactive and innovation, Unitymedia KabelBW, who said the operator will roll out the Horizon box in Germany at the end of the summer.
    The operator will be up to quite a challegene, as “German customers are afraid to try new things on their TV.” Horizon will act as an all-singing, all-dancing home gateway.
    In theory, a cloud based service such as Ziggo could be rolled out outside the operator’s footprint. “Technical it is not an issue to lasunch off-net services, but content rights are the biggest issue.
    “We first tried to get content rights for in and around the house on different ddevices – that took a lot of discussiion. To go OTT, then you have a new discussion with new obstacles.”
