    Elemental achieves 4K milestone
    December 11, 2013 09.54 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    Elemental BuildingElemental Technologies has provided a demonstration of full frame rate 4K Ultra HD high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) at a special event in London.
    In it, the company showed an end-to-end workflow in which live [email protected] HEVC content was encoded for display in real time.
    Elemental first announced support for the H.265 codec in January this year.
    It then brought functional real-time HEVC video processing to NAB in April and demonstrated 10-bit 4K HEVC video processing at IBC in September.
    This was followed by the world’s first real-time video processing of live [email protected] HEVC at the Osaka Marathon in October and the London now demonstration in London, which was undertaken at 60 frames per second.
    Aslan Khader, chief product officer at Elemental, said: “Unlike cinema, live sports are best viewed at higher frame rates. In 2014, we expect live sports to drive 4K Ultra HD adoption by those programmers and pay-TV operators seeking to deliver a more compelling sports entertainment experience.
    “With our HEVC implementation and software-defined architecture, Elemental gives customers a viable path to deliver Ultra HD TV services.”
    Speaking at the demo, Keith Wymbs, VP of marketing, that that Elemental had established multiscreen leadership in just over three years.
    According to a report by SNL Kagan published this month, it was the number one transcoder market player in North America, Latin America and Caribbean, Western Europe and Asia Pacific.
    However, the encoding market remains fragmented.
    Served by around 20 companies and worth $800+ million in 2012, Harmonic (23%), Ericsson (17%) and Thomson Video Networks (11%) claim the most revenues, with Elemental still a minor player.
    Wymbs said that much of the industry still has a challenge with (4K) content.
    He also predicted that by NAB (in 2014) “(we) will have full commercial scenarios where customers could generate revenue.”

    Report: Discovery mulls Scripps bid
    December 11, 2013 09.43 Europe/London By Julian Clover

    ScrippsShares in Scripps Networks Interactive soared by almost 15% on Tuesday after a report suggested that Discovery Channel was considering a bid for the UKTV part-owner.
    Variety said Discovery executives had discussed the matter at a board meeting that day.
    Scripps, which acquired its 50% in UKTV, operator of GOLD, Watch and Dave, in August 2011 also runs US networks Food Network, HGTV and Travel Channel.
    Discovery itself is on an ambitious acquisition spree. It already has a 20% share in Eurosport and in April 2013 acquired ProSieben.Sat 1 Group’s SBS Nordic operations.
    Scripps Networks Interactive’s history dates back to 1878 when Edward W Scripps founded The Penny Press in Cleveland. The EW Scripps Company (Scripps) became one of the most successful newspaper publishers of the post-war era and built its reputation as a leading operator of local television stations. Following the purchase of Cinetel Productions in 1994 the company launched HGTV.
    Scripps Networks Interactive was spun off as a separate company in 2008.

    ONO considers public offering
    December 11, 2013 11.40 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    Ono New HQSpain’s leading cable operator ONO is looking into the possibility of an IPO for some of its shares in the first half of 2014.
    Quoting two unnamed sources, Reuters reports that no decision has yet been made on whether to partially list the company.
    However, its management is keen to take advantage of renewed interest in Spanish assets from foreign investors and a slight improvement in the country’s economy.
    A share offering in ONO could come alongside a capital increase and both moves are likely to be discussed at ONO’s next board meeting, due to take place in a few weeks time.
