    BBC to deliver 360 hours of digital content this weekend
    Louise Duffy |30-06-2013
    The BBC has announced it will broadcast approximately 360 hours of digital coverage this weekend, delivering live music and sporting events across four screens – PCs, mobiles, tablets and connected TVs.
    There will be six live streams from the Glastonbury music festival and up to 10 from Wimbledon, alongside coverage of the Formula 1 British Grand Prix and other sporting events, making it the BBC’s biggest digital weekend since the London 2012 Olympics.
    The BBC teams will also share extra clips, images and behind-the-scenes content across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr, and will encourage viewers to join in the conversation and share their #bestseat experiences.
    In addition, for the first time ever, the BBC’s new Connected Red Button will enable Virgin Media TiVo viewers to watch any of the BBC’s live streams from the biggest TV in the house, by simply pressing red. Connected Red Button will launch on other connected TVs later this year.

    UK sets up anti-piracy police unit
    By Colin Mann 30 2013

    A new police unit aimed at targeting intellectual property crime in the UK has been established in a co-operation between the Intellectual Property Office and the City of London Police.
    The unit will be dedicated to tackling online piracy and other forms of intellectual property crime such as counterfeit goods. It will be one of the first units of its kind in the world, ensuring that the UK stays at the forefront of intellectual property enforcement.
    The Intellectual Property Office will provide £2.5 million in funding over two years to the City of London Police, which is the National Lead Force for fraud, to establish and run the unit. It is expected the unit will be up and running in September 2013.
    The UK Minister for Intellectual Property, Lord Younger, said that intellectual property crime had long been a problem in the world of physical goods, but with the growing use of the internet, online intellectual property crime was now an increasing threat to the creative industries. “These industries are worth more than £36 billion a year and employ more than 1.5 million people. Government and our law enforcement agencies must do all they can to protect our creative industries and the integrity of consumer goods. By working with the City of London Police, who have recognised expertise in tackling economic crime, we are showing how committed this Government is to supporting business and delivering economic growth,” he explained.
    The Commissioner of the City of London Police, Adrian Leppard, noted that intellectual property crime was costing the UK economy hundreds of millions of pounds each year, with organised crime gangs causing significant damage to industries that produce legitimate, high quality, physical goods and online and digital content in an increasingly competitive climate.
    “The establishment of a new online intellectual property crime unit is evidence of the Government and City of London Police’s commitment to confront this threat. Together we are creating an operationally independent police unit that will co-ordinate the national and international response from law enforcement and public and private sector partners so we can effectively target those who continue to illegally profiteer on the back of others endeavours. In doing so, we will also be safeguarding jobs and protecting people’s personal and computer safety by ensuring they are not exposed to counterfeit goods and unauthorised copyrighted content,” he declared.
    Around seven million people a month visit sites offering illegal content in the UK. Globally, it is projected that digitally pirated music, films and software will account for losses of around $80 billion – this is expected to rise to $240 billion by 2015. According to The Creative Coalition’s TERA Report (2010), if nothing is done about copyright infringement, up to a quarter of a million jobs in the UK could be at risk by 2015.
    The intention to set the unit up was announced by the UK Business Secretary, Vince Cable, in December 2012.

    Content rights slowing down TV Everywhere market

    Nearly one-third of US telco TV households are expected to access multiscreen or TV Everywhere services by the end of 2013, according to ABI Research, with the vast majority already using advanced interactive features such as remote programming a DVR. Cable is close behind as a result of its early lead, but the growth rate for these services is slower because of the greater diversity of cable households and services (not all service providers offer TVE). Satellite operators are further behind, because of slower starts and lack of in-house broadband services, but offer some novel experiences such as Dish’s Sling place-shifting technology.
    “The market is still developing with many of the early growing pains, like authentication, finally starting to take a back seat to the content,” comments senior analyst, Michael Inouye. “In many respects, the technology is in place to increasingly offer wider reaching TVE services. Securing the rights to broader content distribution is the primary remaining hurdle, but once standard metrics are developed the content floodgates are expected to open wider.”
    According to ABI Research, consumers also need further education about these TVE services, particularly to help navigate content availability and fragmented device support. Outside of the computer, Apple’s iPad continues to be the most supported TVE device in the US market. iOS and Android smartphones and tablets capture the lion’s share of device support, beating even the popular game consoles, which the research firm suggests highlights the vital importance mobility plays in the future of the TVE market.
    “In the multiscreen and OTT space the MVPDs are moving at a relatively fast pace – rapid enough that in some instances the platforms have outpaced consumer awareness,” adds practice director, Sam Rosen. “Beyond consumer education a great deal of work remains to best optimise the user experience, one that satisfies consumers’ increasing penchant for on demand content but also ensures the content is adequately monetised. This objective is creating new opportunities for a wide range of companies within the greater content value chain.”
    These findings are part of ABI Research’s OTT and Multi-screen Services Research Service.

    Watson: ‘BT Sport around for the long term’
    By Colin Mann 30 2013

    Marc Watson, CEO of BT TV, has said the telco will “stick around for the long term” with its sports channels and declared that the company had “deep pockets” to enable it to compete for premium sports rights.
    He said that BT wanted BT Sport to grow its whole consumer business in the UK, and was confident in its ability to compete with Sky. “We intend to stick around in this game for the long term. We are a big business; this is our home market. We are a British company. And we’re not that easy to chase out of town. We’ve got the quality of games. ”
    “Although we will always be careful about what we spend, and we will look to spend wisely, we have deep pockets to really compete in the market and to co-exist with Sky for many years to come,” Watson told members of the Broadcasting Press Guild. He denied that the telco’s entry into premium sports market was a battle between it and Sky, suggesting “there’s room in the market for two. We can peacefully co-exist.”
    He said that BT Sport’s marketing campaign gave the sense that “something big” was being born. “We’ve had a huge response to that so far across the country. We think we’ve got the right quality of sport, an incredible line-up of talent and we’re giving it away for free.”
    He refuted suggestions that this could be a “ruinous” strategy and a folly. “It’s part of a long-term strategy and we’ve been thinking about it for a long time. We want and it suits us for our channels to be watched and loved by millions of people across the UK and Ireland.”
    He said that where BT saw the real opportunity in the market was in bringing its big investments in products together, in particular TV and broadband under its BT Infinity brand. He said the £1 billion that BT had invested in rights was dwarfed by the £2.5 billion to £3 billion it had invested in rolling out superfast broadband across the UK. “Together, they make a really compelling, powerful double act.”
    He said that BT was different from Setanta and ESPN (who both held Premier League rights at one stage). “We won’t win or lose solely by how many customers we sign up for our sports channels.” BT saw a great opportunity in triple play bundles, with the telco now able to take advantage of such possibilities having previously been unable to do so because of regulation.

    FilmOn’s David sues broadcasters

    Internet TV streaming service FilmOn has reacted to a lawsuit filed in March by a group of broadcasters by filing its response and a counterclaim. FilmOn founder Alki David is seeking a declaratory judgement that providing technology that allows consumers to receive free over-the-air broadcast signals via the Internet is not a violation of TV broadcasters’ copyrights.
    The complaint has been filed in Washington, DS, with David telling advanced-television.com that he felt it was “pretty powerful” and one he hoped Judge Rosemary Collyer would find persuasive.
    According to the counterclaim, the Network’s repetitive litigious behaviour is inconsistent with the statutory obligations associated with the broadcast licences granted to the Networks, which enable the Networks to access valuable broadcast frequencies – a public trust. “Having initially accepted billions of dollars in public resources and various other regulatory benefits, the Networks now seek to renege on the deal struck with Congress under the Communications Act of 1934 and abandon their responsibilities to the American public. Only broad declaratory relief like that sought in this Counterclaim can preserve this public trust,” it says.

    Toshiba Ultra HD TVs for US market

    Toshiba has revealed that the L9300U Series of 4K Ultra HD TVs will be available for purchase in the US this August, starting at $4,999 for the 58-inch model.
    The new Toshiba L9300U TVs are powered by Toshiba’s proprietary CEVO 4K Quad+Dual Core Processor, delivering the highest quality 4K image processing, including Resolution Restoration to restore clean near 4K image quality from less than 4K content, Color Gamut Enhancement to create colour intensity that matches the resolution impact and Surface Brilliance Enhancement that brings images to life like never before.
    “While the content creators work to create more 4K content and figure out how to distribute it, consumers can still enjoy the clearer, more natural and lifelike images on a 4K Ultra HD TV,” said Scott Ramirez, vice president of product marketing and development, Visual Products, Toshiba America Information Systems, Digital Products Division. “This year, consumers can enjoy Blu-ray Discs with near 4K resolution thanks to powerful upscaling technology; however when choosing a brand, they should choose one that has high-quality processing and proven engineering skill to optimise the 4K experience right, like Toshiba.”

    ITV chooses BT for broadcast network

    BT has announced a new five year contract to provide ITV with a state-of-the-art digital broadcast network across the UK.
    BT’s media network will connect ITV’s 13 major broadcasting sites to its data centres, enabling them to transfer large amounts of data and uncompressed HD video between sites, at speeds of up to 10Gbit/s.
    The new ‘X-Ne’ network, based on BT Wholesale’s new broadcast-specific wavelength technology and high-quality Ethernet services, is expected to be in place by spring 2014. It will also support compressed media and data links between 32 smaller ITV sites and news bureaus – with the network being managed from BT Wholesale’s International Media Centre at BT Tower, London.
    William Medlicott, Finance Director, ITV Broadcast said: “Today’s audiences want to watch quality content wherever and whenever they choose using a variety of platforms, and our broadcast network must be flexible in order to meet this demand. BT’s network solution will help us deliver content ready for transmission quickly and effectively across ITV and the variety of partners we collaborate with on a daily basis.”

    HRT: soon moved to the 16 ° E

    2013-06-29

    Croatian public broadcaster HRT (Hrvatska Radiotelevizija) satellite positions change - from 1st July 2013, consisting of a multiplex channel HRT will be available in one of the transponders Eutelsat 16A (16 ° E) on the frequency 10.720 GHz, pol. H, SR 27500, FEC 3/4, DVB-S/QPSK. The HRT July 31 channels are available simultaneously with both satellite positions.

    July 31 message from the transponder 90 Eutelsat Hot Bird 13A (13 ° E), with a frequency of 12.520 GHz, pol. V, SR 27500, FEC 3/4, DVB-S/QPSK is completed.

    Specifications Package HRT from 01/07/2013:
    Eutelsat 16A (16 ° E)
    tp. A1 (10.720 GHz, pol. H, SR 27500, FEC 3/4, DVB-S/QPSK)

    Existing technical package HRT:
    Eutelsat Hot Bird 13A (13 ° E)
    tp. 90 (12.520 GHz, pol. V, SR 27500, FEC 3/4, DVB-S/QPSK)

    It is worth noting that the tp. A1 at 16 ° E, in which the channels appear HRT in June tested packet transmission of the Voice of America.

    Moving HRT at 16 degrees seems a logical step, because of the same item, you can watch satellite platform Croatian Max TV, and there's a lot of channels broadcast in the countries of southern Europe.
