    Measat and Ericsson trial 4K/UltraHD
    June 15, 2013 09.06 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    Measat Satellite Systems has begun trials with Ericsson to demonstrate the ability to provide live Ultra HD TV video (4K) contribution over MEASAT’s satellite network.
    Ericsson and MEASAT are demonstrating a live solution at Broadcast Asia 2013.
    “Measat looks forward to supporting UltraHD across Asia, beginning with this trial on our high-powered Measat-3 satellite. UltraHD will take consumer expectations for high quality picture to a new level. We are therefore ensuring that the necessary solutions and systems are in place to deliver the next generation of TV services that meet evolving consumer demand,” said Jarod Lopez, VP, broadcast sales, Measat.
    “We are excited about the UltraHD trial using Ericsson’s reliable and efficient solution and will ensure that we have the infrastructure in place to distribute and broadcast 4K content over satellite in a reliable and robust manner.”
    MEASAT has a reach that covers over 150 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Australia, representing 80% of the world’s population. The Ericsson solution that it has in place for the UltraHD trial uses Ericsson’s AVP 2000 contribution encoders and RX8200 advanced modular receivers.
    “We understand that with consumer demand for higher quality comes greater pressure on broadcasters to increase service velocity while maintaining the high standards that are expected,” said Dr. Giles Wilson, Head of TV Compression Business, Ericsson. “This trial with MEASAT demonstrates how content providers and broadcasters can simply and effectively build their UltraHD content libraries so that they are ready for commercial launch in the coming years. Ericsson is a pioneer of next-generation TV services and is committed to enabling the industry to meet consumer demand, rather than chase it.”
    Ericsson’s AVP 2000 and RX8200 solutions deliver the highest levels of performance including 4:2:2, 10bit support as well as p50/60 support. As they use MPEG-4 AVC encoding technology, the same devices can also be re-used for HD and SD contribution applications. Ericsson has also employed its Simulsync technology to ensure that the delivery of the UHDTV images remains perfectly in sync.

    Dutch FTTH market to grow to 3.5m homes passed in 2017
    June 15, 2013 10.01 Europe/London By Broadband TV News Correspondent

    The Dutch FTTH market expanded to 1.45 million homes passed at the end of 2012.
    Of the total, 483,000 lines were actually used (homes activated), according to Telecompaper’s annual FTTH report. The Telecompaper FTTH Monitor, a detailed database on FTTH progress in the Netherlands, shows that the ratio of homes activated versus homes passed increased from 30 to 33% last year. Telecompaper now estimates 3.47 million FTTH lines by 2017.
    Reggefiber is the market leader with an 89% share of homes passed in 2012, although its main competitor CIF added 5 percent to its market share. CIF now has a market share of 8 percent.
    The new report, FTTH Netherlands 2013, also provides an overview of the state of the Dutch FTTH market at the level of the individual twelve provinces, with a detailed comparison of 2012 versus 2013. From our assessment of the market on a provincial level, we see that Flevoland (HP penetration 64%, HA penetration 22%) and Overijssel (HP penetration 42%, HA penetration 12%) lead, while Zeeland is lagging (virtually no FTTH).
    The report provides a short overview of what happened in the past year at big and small FTTH players. Reggefiber attracted another EIB loan. KPN received permission for the takeover of four Reggeborgh service providers, winning a market share of about 90 percent on the Reggefiber networks. CIF announced a number of takeovers and joint ventures. Vodafone recently bought Wiericke, which will boost its FTTH goals. Tele2 entered the market. Several major and new players are presented, and there are brief discussions on a number of hot issues in the (international) broadband and FTTH markets.

    Broadcast Asia 2013: Media Excel to showcase encoding and transcoding solutions
    Louise Duffy | 15-06-2013

    Media Excel will be highlighting its multiscreen MPEG-4 AVC encoding and transcoding solutions at Broadcast Asia 2013 in Singapore on 18-21 June.
    The company will also present its new low-latency HERO contribution encoding platform for point-to-point delivery over IP and ASI networks. The HERO product line addresses the need to deliver the highest picture quality over limited-bandwidth networks across all screens, with live and VoD adaptive delivery over HLS, Smooth, Flash, and MPEG-DASH to consumer devices.

    Media Excel will also demonstrate how its products are upgradeable to its Intel-powered H.265 High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) encoding technology. This allows operators to extend their ROI by maintaining the same quality as MPEG-4 AVC encoding while using only half the bandwidth, or by doubling the amount of content using the same bandwidth.

    "Broadcasters and content providers fight a never-ending battle between quality and bandwidth, with the goal of making sure that viewers watching on any device receive the content they expect in the highest possible quality," said John Hotchkiss, COO of Media Excel. "Our state-of-the-art HERO video processing and HMS workflow management solutions help to win that battle by delivering highly available, high-quality services for mission-critical, low delay applications."

    Worldwide deployments of the HERO platform have given Media Excel an expanded presence in the Asia-Pacific region, with recent deals in South Korea — SK Telecom, Korea Telecom and LGU+, who adopted the HERO platform to power their large-scale multiscreen transcoding projects. These deployments in Asia-Pacific join Australia's Telstra, which has been using Media Excel solutions for high-quality mobile video distribution to 10.5 million mobile subscribers, including 8.2 million 3G subscribers.

    "Our recent wins in APAC are a direct result of Media Excel's unique IP transcoding technology that delivers superior quality video to all consumer connected devices," said Hotchkiss. "Tens of millions of paid multiscreen subscribers around the world enjoy high quality video, while their service providers benefit from an effortless, reliable, and low-overhead operation."

This is an achievement we are proud of and we are ready to share our experience with other countries and partners.

    Orange relaunches Spanish IPTV platform
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 15-06-2013
    Orange is to relaunch its IPTV platform in Spain with new offerings and packages.
    Recent reports have shown that an increasing number of people prefer to have a pay-TV contract with the same company which provides them with Internet connection, so Orange has decided to focus on its current ADSL customers and offer them its IPTV platform services.
    Over the next year, the themed channels package – which had a price of €15 – will cost €10 for Internet and Kangaroo clients. Orange will also increase the channel offer to 30 themed channels as well as 24 general channels. The offer includes a €10 credit to purchase content on the pay-per-view platform.
    Orange TV's content includes Fox, AXN, TNT, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, Discovery, National Geographic, TCM and MTV.
    The main problem which faces the company is the connection speed. The IPTV platforms consume bandwidth from the Internet connection, and in some parts of Spain, especially in smaller towns and cities, the infrastructure doesn't enable both to run while still providing high quality.
