    DStv launches Cape Verde channel
    July 4, 201310.12 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    MultiChoice Africa, in partnership with Thema, has launched TCV – Cape Verde Television, a Portuguese language channel.
    The new channel is now available for DStv subscribers in Angola and Mozambique on all Portuguese packages.
    TCV – Cape Verde Television is a public service channel broadcast from the archipelago of Cape Verde “in order to strengthen its national identity and forge a closer bond with the Cape Verdean diaspora. The channel’s line-up includes a wide range of shows, such as TV news, sports, culture, music, entertainment, series, and children’s programmes.”
    “This channel is one more example of MultiChoice’s commitment to offer its subscribers a large volume of content in Portuguese, but it also serves to help Cape Verdeans living abroad to remain in touch with their country’s culture,” said Nico Meyer, CEO of MultiChoice Africa, in a statement.
    The international TCV channel is a project from Paris-based Thema, who helped the broadcaster to make an international version of the channel to be distributed across the world. See also an interview with Thema CEO François Thiellet on the project in Broadband TV News passim.

    Samsung buys Boxee for $30m
    July 4, 2013 10.34.Europe/London By Julian Clover

    Samsung Electronics has confirmed that it has purchased the video streamer Boxee in a transaction believed to be in the region of $30 million.
    In a statement the South Korean electronics giant said it had “acquired key talent and assets” from the company.
    As of Wednesday evening there had been no confirmation from Boxee itself.
    Samsung is looking to improve its user experience across connected devices.
    Originally developed as a software platform, Boxee later launched its own set-top box, pitching the Tel-Aviv start up against other devices including the Apple TV box and Roku.
    It has also developed its own cloud based PVR, known as Cloudee
    Samsung has received some criticism on the user friendliness of its Smart TVs and the software has gone through several iterations.
    Since its inception in 2007 Boxee has received three rounds of funding totalling $26.5m in investments from Spark Capital, Union Square Ventures, General Catalyst Partners, Pitango Venture Capital, and Softbank NY.
    If confirmed the $30 million purchase will not go down as a success for the venture partners.

    3D Entertainment plots TV application strategy
    Michelle Clancy | 04-07-2013
    3D Entertainment Holdings has laid out its digital distribution business model for going forward, with a plan to create TV apps for a range for a range of connected devices. It intends to focus on a 2D and 3D content media creation business.
    The applications will offer full length movies, TV shows, shorts, dramas and original programming for a subscription cost of $7.99 per month.
    The company said that it plans to make content available on a global scale via applications available inside a prospective app store, for mobile devices, set top boxes, connected television sets, and cable and satellite systems. Primary platforms include iOS, Android, Kindle, Roku, Boxee and smart TVs.
    The apps will also be offered as a free download over QR codes on print media and via direct downloads over social platforms. The free download will be available for a limited time, after which it would then transfer to a paid monthly subscription.
    “Presently, the 3D TV application business has a fantastic growth potential in light of the expanding sales of 3D TVs and 3D mobile devices,” it said in a statement. “Our focus will be to arrange 3D content distribution agreements with studios around the world. Distribution agreements will help us solidify others in the broadcast space the availability of the content for licensing fees to rebroadcast.”
    The company said that its conservative projections place its subscription base at more than 100,000 within the first 12 months, with an additional growth to 250,000 subscribers by the two year mark. It believes our application business could generate more than $30 million in subscription fees and advertising.
    “Customer choice of services in this industry is based on the limited space for 3D content and the growth of 3D screens,” the company said. “This growth is helping to fuel the need for quality movies and TV shows. Other application developers could enter into the space. Our ability to acquire retransmission agreements with content developers and partnering with a content developer ourselves will greatly help us have the competitive edge.”

    BT adds more football to sports portfolio
    Editor | 04-07-2013
    While the headiness have been grabbed by how much English Premiers League (EPL) content it will show on its new sports channel, BT Sport has added non-league football to its bouquet.
    Under a two year deal, the company has inked a deal with English football’s fifth tier, The Football Conference, to show 30 live matches a season from the Conference Premier including live broadcasts from the grounds for 25 league matches, plus both legs of the play-off semis and the Promotion Final at Wembley, from the start of the 2013-14 season in August.
    “We are delighted that we’ve been able to invest in the Non-League game and play our part in helping community clubs to flourish,” commented Simon Green, head of BT Sport. “We are not just interested in the glamour of the Premier League; we’d like to bring the excitement and grit of the Conference Premier to a new audience, as well as its existing strong fan base. There are some terrific clubs in the Conference Premier and some fantastic stories and characters, which we aim to develop in our coverage.”
    Added Brian Lee, chairman of The Football Conference: “We feel that the prospect of showcasing our wonderful brand of live football to a potentially mind-blowing number of viewers can only enhance our product. We hope sponsors of clubs and competition alike recognise the huge step that we are now undertaking. We sincerely hope this is the start of a long and fruitful partnership for both parties."

    Indiana PBS stations add Harris Broadcast for sharing content in real time
    Michelle Clancy | 04-07-2013
    Indiana Public Broadcasting Stations (IPBS), a consortium of eight PBS TV stations and nine NPR radio stations serving communities across Indiana, is installing a Harris Broadcast networking solution to efficiently share and manage broadcast content across all 17 member stations.
    Based on a bandwidth fiber and IP video network, the project gives Indiana PBS member stations real-time content sharing, collaboration and distribution capabilities for television and radio.
    Roger Rhodes, executive director of Indiana Public Broadcasting Stations, called the project a “Statewide HD/SD educational network for Hoosiers” and noted that IPBS carefully considered several strong vendors. Harris Broadcast was selected for its ability to facilitate the convergence of baseband video and audio processing, compression and IP multicasting for statewide signal contribution, distribution and management.
    The complete Harris Broadcast solution includes the Selenio media convergence platform for HD/SD video networking, Intraplex IP Link 100 and 200 codecs for audio networking, and the Magellan NMS solution for network-wide systems control and management. The entire solution positions IPBS for the future with a configurable, expandable baseband/IP video platform that can adapt to new standards and operational requirements, and interoperate with third-party technology.
    “Until now, real-time content sharing between our member stations has been extremely challenging due to the high cost of satellite time and technical limitations,” said Rhodes. “When the build-out is complete, our stations will have the resources to do more live, real-time programming across the state in an efficient and streamlined manner. Also, our creative storytelling and HD contribution capabilities will vastly expand, because it’s no longer an impossibly expensive and cumbersome proposition.”
    For example, Selenio will control production travel costs by enabling every station on the network to carry live interviews from another IPBS station, or otherwise share content over the IP network. Rhodes noted that The Indiana Channel is one IPBS program service that will benefit from live, real-time networking, as it packages member station-produced features on topics of interest that appeal to viewers statewide.
    Meanwhile, Intraplex IP Link technology will enable IPBS NPR member stations to distribute full-bandwidth broadcast-quality audio streams and low-resolution confidence monitoring streams via IP multicast. IPBS radio stations will use IP Link codecs to share radio shows and contribute live news reports to one or more IPBS radio stations. They will also serve as regional news bureaus, feeding the statewide IPBS radio network.
    “Our statewide radio news service can now expand program horizons with 24/7 real time content sharing throughout the state,” said Rhodes. “While each station focuses on local community service and multi-station collaboration, this network allows them to envision the entire state of Indiana as their local live studio.”
    Magellan NMS streamlines management of the entire IPBS workflow, for movement of high-quality video and audio media over the network. The consolidation of all contribution video and audio into a single user interface simplifies the distribution process amongst the stations. Furthermore, the Magellan NMS architecture includes several thousand network drivers, simplifying future connectivity to other products in the IPBS workflow including network switches, routers and servers.
    Harris Broadcast will configure the entire system at WFYI, the IPBS member station in Indianapolis, and train station engineers at this location over a two-day period. Individual stations will later migrate their components to the field as the I-Light network service becomes available locally. Rhodes calls this one example of “learning how to gain the efficiencies of a centralised service without a corresponding sacrifice of local station autonomy, community service and branding.”
    Rhodes added, “This platform saves money, time, and effort for our member stations today, and paves the way to build a joint master control operation serving IPBS TV stations from single location,” he said. “We’re always looking for ways to cut costs and put more resources into producing the high-quality, Indiana-centric programming our viewers depend on us to provide. We believe that sharing the maintenance of a single master control will realise significant savings on capital equipment.”

    Corman’s Drive In’ YouTube channel brings Sharktopus, Sorority House Massacre to international viewers
    Parent Category: News | 04-07-2013
    After a launch in the US and Canada last month, American B-movie filmmaker Roger Corman is expanding his subscription YouTube channel, Corman’s Drive-In.
    Corman, a godfather of independent movies, popularised film sub-genres like car-chase pictures, dystopian biker flicks, cross-species mutant monsters, space operas, and women-in-cages. He and wife/producer Julie Corman personally select the films that debut each month on Corman’s Drive-In from their vault of 400 titles.
    Corman’s Drive-In will be available in the UK, Japan, Brazil, France, Spain, Russia, South Korea and Australia and will premiere with a double-feature of Jack Nicholson’s debut films, the classic spaghetti sci–fi flick Starcrash, the original Piranha and the grindhouse sexploitation movie, Big Doll House.
    Coming this summer, the channel will offer subscribers a new selection of films including Allan Arkush’s Rock N Roll High School, where punk rock pioneers The Ramones lead a band of music-loving students to rebel against their oppressive school administration; the martial arts hit Bloodfist with kickboxer champion Don The Dragon Wilson; and Carnosaur, a 1993 science fiction horror film starring Diane Ladd as a mad scientist who plans to recreate dinosaurs and destroy humanity.
    Corman’s Drive-In also features a library of exclusive content including sneak peeks of upcoming features, like Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda, Corman’s latest cross-species mash-up, and Mark Hamill’s video game-inspired Virtually Heroes.
    The channel provides direct access to Roger and Julie Corman through personal anecdotes, Corman’s Take and video responses to select subscriber questions. Also a resource for fans and filmmakers are exclusive Interviews with cast and crew, including directors Joe Dante and Arkush, Jurassic Park director of photography Dean Cundey, Transformers stuntman John Branagan and the college girls of Sorority House Massacre.
    Offered as a subscription programming service for $3.99 per month, Corman’s Drive-In will refresh its rotating selection of 30 movie titles regularly, along with Corman’s Take and other original content every month. Corman’s Drive-In also offers consumers a 14-day free trial subscription.

    Civolution inks deal with NBC News Channel to track affiliate video use
    Michelle Clancy | 04-07-2013
    Civolution has renewed a multi-year contract with NBC News Channel to supply its global broadcast intelligence solution, Teletrax.
    NBC News Channel will use Teletrax to understand usage of their pre-recorded and live content by the NBC affiliates, US domestic and international clients.
    The information is provided via round-the-clock monitoring of a selection of broadcasters from the more than 2,000 channels tracked by Teletrax. As a result, NBC News Channel will gain intelligence on how its content is used and disseminated by the affiliate stations and client broadcasters, allowing more efficient inventory management and allocation of the company’s resources in producing and distributing its assets.
    “We used the power of Teletrax first hand back in 2002 for almost a decade for all our news output, including large events coverage such as the 2004 and 2006 Olympic Games and Winter Olympics,” said Bob Horner, president of the NBC News Channel. “With our growing video output and increased reach, we felt a growing need to integrate Teletrax’s reporting into all our production and distribution workflow to allow us to produce the most relevant news content possible to provide for our network of affiliates. We’re looking forward to using the insights gained by Teletrax to help drive our activities.”
    “As the content landscape becomes increasingly fragmented, we have been working hard to ensure that Teletrax delivers increased levels of precise, actionable intelligence for premier news organisations such as NBC News Channel,” said Andy Nobbs, CMO of Civolution. “The selection of our Teletrax platform to assist in guiding their video production and distribution strategy is something we are very proud of.”

    Samsung buys Boxee
    Parent Category: News | 04-07-2013
    In what could give a huge spur to its already rapidly growing connected TV service offering, Samsung has bought Boxee.
    Recent reports in the US have suggested that the online video service provider and maker of the Boxee box product had been looking for extra investment over the last few months and had considered a sale.
    In a statement, the company said that joining Samsung means that it will now be able to work on products that “marry the best hardware and software in the TV space, products that will be used by tens of millions of people and will help to shape the future of TV.” Boxee added: “we started on this journey six years ago, and have been at the forefront of the changing TV and video landscape. We believe that over the next few years the video market will change even more than it has in the past few decades. We are excited about the next chapter for our team.”
    Even though its says that it will strive to ensure there is manual disruption from the takeover, the first consequence of the move will be that the beta cloud DVR functionality it had provided to certain Boxee TV users will be discontinued from 10 July. It does seem likely though that this technology will be offered by Samsung via its own smart TV hub.
