    Tunisia's Media City to be ready by July

    Rebecca Hawkes | 06 May 2014

    Tunis Media City, a hub dedicated to satellite broadcasting and telecommunications services, is set for operation by July 2014, according to its project manager.

    Zied Khedher, director general of the Jordan-Saudi Company for Satellite (JASCO), which is initiating the project, said that the project also aims to establish satellite links and high tech services between the TV channels of the Arab Machreq (Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Syria and Iraq) and the Arab Maghreb (the stretch of North Africa which borders the Mediterranean, and includes Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya).

    The creation of Tunis Media City was announced on the sidelines of an Arab States Broadcasting Union meeting in late April.

    Entropic integrates Conax for content security

    Michelle Clancy | 06 May 2014

    Semiconductor provider Entropic has completed the integration of the Conax conditional access core module into its line of multimedia set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) products.

    Aiming to help prevent the illegal redistribution of premium operator content, Entropic sees embedding the Conax conditional access core into its silicon hardware as adding an additional layer of content security for the protection of satellite, cable, terrestrial, IP and over-the-top (OTT) video networks. Entropic's ARM-based STB SoC solutions are designed for hybrid broadcast/IP pay-TV networks to provide security, integration, features and ecosystem support.

    "We believe the most effective mechanism for securing operator revenue while maintaining subscriber convenience is using state of the art Conax smart card technology paired with advanced chipsets, like those from Entropic, to ensure smart cards can be used only with secure devices," said Hans Kwaaitaal, vice president of strategic partner relations at Conax. "In working with Entropic, we are able to offer today's global operators new DVB set-top box security solutions that will prevent the illegal viewing of their premium content."

    Matt Rhodes, senior vice president of global marketing at Entropic, added: "Entropic is focused on upholding the highest levels of security for any set-top device, ensuring content protection is as robust as possible and providing the highest quality and security support available at any given time. We ... believe that natively embedding the Conax conditional access pairing technology into our silicon hardware will optimise operators' ability to secure set-top devices that can easily be exploited in the form of card-sharing, set-top box hijacking or illegal redistribution of live and stored content."

    Cablevision, ActiveVideo deploy cloud-based ad platform

    Michelle Clancy | 06 May 2014

    Cablevision and ActiveVideo are working together to deploy a new monetisation platform offering the delivery of HTML5 interactive ads from the cloud, extending rich, graphic-intensive ads to television.

    HTML5 support on the new CloudTV AdCast means that ads can be written once and run across screens, including the TV. Cablevision's initial trial deployment with will include American Express and its interactive TV app, called Amex NOW.

    "Pay-TV's efforts to scale interactive TV advertising repeatedly have been hindered by the fragmentation and limited resources of the millions of existing set-top boxes," said Jeff Miller, president and CEO of ActiveVideo. "Cablevision's market leadership is enabling brands to bring to television the personalisation, interactivity and metrics that have driven the success of Web ads."

    In addition to more interactive features, the new platform will offer Cablevision advertisers data insights into the actual effectiveness of their ad buys, viewer engagement, response-rates and conversion. These insights can then be used by advertisers and their agencies to further optimise their campaign and ad messaging.

    "Simplifying the process for advertisers to extend interactive ads to television is a key objective for Cablevision," said Ben Tatta, president of Cablevision Media Sales. "We look forward to the launch of AdCast and the introduction of new, more robust ad solutions for American Express and all of our valued clients."

    Debuted earlier this year at CES, CloudTV AdCast enables interactive TV ads to be rendered in the cloud, streamed irrespective of graphics, memory and processing power of devices and navigated via existing remote controls.

    BlackArrow to support Nielsen's VOD ratings

    Michelle Clancy | 06 May 2014

    BlackArrow has announced a turnkey solution for automating the workflows and operations required to implement Nielsen's On-Demand Commercial Ratings (ODCR).

    As it stands, programme minutes that contain national commercials are averaged together and aggregated for up to seven days of viewing. The majority of existing national advertising deals include up to three days of viewing contribution (also known as C3). The ODCR technology allows for current commercial loads to be inserted into older episodes of the same programme on-demand, extending the opportunity to monetise older content.

    Nielsen completed a technical test with Comcast in late 2013 and is now working to bring ODCR to market. Working within the existing linear television landscape, ODCR enables content owners, distributors and advertisers to better leverage advertising opportunities inherent in time-shifted content.

    BlackArrow's dynamic ad insertion technology allows for commercials to be managed and inserted into the appropriate, qualified programming. It's built into BlackArrow's existing platform, provides a proven solution to support the scale required for a successful, national implementation if adopted by the industry.

    "VOD has quickly become a key platform for TV audiences – especially for the viewing of prime time TV shows," said Dean McCormick at BlackArrow. "BlackArrow's support of Nielsen's ODCR provides our customers another valuable solution in their efforts to build a sustainable on-demand TV business model for themselves and their affiliates."

    "At a time when consumers expect content to be available on multiple screens whenever they want it, Nielsen is developing solutions to help our clients further monetise their content and maximise the value of their business models," said Brian Fuhrer, senior vice president at Nielsen. "BlackArrow works closely with many of our clients to extend the value of their content."

    Pace integrates RDK into middleware

    Michelle Clancy | 06 May 2014

    Founding Reference Design Kit (RDK) licensee Pace has integrated the RDK into its Elements middleware platform.

    Elements is based on open-source components and supports the design, delivery and management of digital content and services into and around the home.

    Pace has been working Comcast and other operators on RDK product roll-outs across North America, and has shipped over three million RDK-compliant devices in the United States alone. It said that it is also planning to expand into DVB markets with RDK product deployments in partnership with other major MSOs like Liberty Global.

    The RDK was first developed internally by Comcast using open-source components and by working with various vendors. Now, the RDK is a community-based ecosystem that allows developers, vendors and cable operators to use a defined stack of software on one layer in order to provision set-top boxes and gateways. Developers can write once and then scale across multiple environments – in both the CableCard/ QAM/MPEG-2 environment of today, as well as in the IP environment of tomorrow.

    Pace also has expanded its relationship with RDK Management by signing up to the RDK Advanced Support Program (ASP) and Media Sponsorship Program (MSP). The RDK ASP provides access to a suite of development tools, testing platforms, advanced training and testing frameworks; while the MSP enables enhanced communications between Pace, RDK Management and the other RDK stakeholders.

    "It's great to see Pace expanding its role as a key member of the RDK community, their expertise across hardware and software has been an integral part of evolving the RDK," said Steve Heeb, president and general manager at RDK Management.

    Colombian teens prefer pay-TV

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 06 May 2014

    Colombia's pay-TV is on the rise, with a 4% larger share in Q1 2014 than in the same period last year, and these figures point to a particularly strong growth among teenagers, with 55.8% preferring pay-TV over free-to-air (FTA).

    According to the latest report from the Latin American Multichannel Advertising Council (LAMAC), 47.8% of Colombians prefer to watch pay-TV. While this figure represents a 4% growth, the number of teenagers prefering to watch pay-TV represents a 16.5% increase compared to Q1 2013.

    The time youngsters spend in front of TV has also increased from a daily average of two hours 32 minutes in 2013 to two hours 47 minutes in the first months of 2014. The trend is especially noticeable during the weekends, when young viewers watch pay-TV for three hours and 11 minutes on average per day.

    LAMAC's report is not the only one pointing to this preference. According to Target Group Index (TGI), 97% of teenagers have watched at least one pay-TV channel in the last week, preferring genres like action, adventure, horror and sport.

    "These figures point to the youngsters looking for variety and quality content responding to their interests," said Mimi López, LAMAC's country manager in Colombia.

    Vevo, Mirriad launch native in-video advertising platform

    Joseph O'Halloran | 06 May 2014

    The Vevo premium music and entertainment platform is to become the first digital distribution platform for videos using Mirriad's native, in-video advertising technology.

    Under the terms of a new partnership, the two companies will work together to connect leading brands with select, premium programming featured across Vevo's Web, mobile/tablet and TV apps. The deal marks Mirriad's entry into both the online digital video space and the North American digital marketplace.

    The first example of the arrangement comes with the new video from recording artist Aloe Blacc for which Mirriad worked with the Levi's brand to create a native in-video advertisement integrated in the video for his track, The Man. In the video, currently viewable on Vevo, the Levi's brand appears, completely in-context, as a billboard in an urban streetscape.

    "Vevo is an essential partner for us as we grow our brand in North America, extend our technology beyond linear television to online digital video, and offer brands a powerful new way to affiliate with the world's best video content," explained Mirriad CEO Mark Popkiewicz, "Mirriad is disrupting the traditional barriers between content and advertising with an innovative solution that allows brands to very precisely integrate brands in a range of online video, in context and with total transparency. We help marry top brands and quality content and deliver an entertaining experience to the 'skip generation' – those consumers whose viewing skips through many traditional ads and across multiple screens."

    "Over 30 years ago, music videos on television were a linear, one-dimensional experience. Today, connected platforms give fans more interactive and personal ways to engage with their favourite artists," added Rio Carafe, Vevo president and CEO. "Mirriad allows us to continue bringing the industry forward and improve our fan's experience by offering uninterrupted viewing while giving brands and content partners a native, creative, scalable and targeted way to come together."

    4G networks could jam Spanish DTT

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 06 May 2014

    On the first day of the freeing up of spectrum in Spain there has already been problems. Following the closure of nine DTT channels to free up more slots for LTE, the telecom's national federation Fecotel says that 4G will interfere with the reception of DTT.

    The country's telcos, which were looking forward to having more space for high speed mobile data networks, haven't started LTE deployment through the freed-up space yet, but Fernandez Flores, Fecotel's coordinator, told Europa Press that there will be interference to DTT and every user will have to readjust their reception device in order to get a clear TV signal.

    "It's highly probable that we are not going to see TV if we are using mobile 4G data or vice-versa," said Flores. According to him, it's impossible to know how it's going to affect each home, although he expects all the details to be clarified when the government publishes its public frequencies plan.

    Today (6 May) saw nine TV DTT channels disappear in Spain, following a Supreme Tribunal ruling that the bidding process was not carried out correctly. This decision fitted with the government's plans to have more space for mobile networks in the same spectrum as DTT.
