    Sky Deutschland to drop Nicktoons

    May 27, 2014 09.33 Europe/London By Jörn Krieger



    NicktoonsGerman pay-TV broadcaster Sky Deutschland will terminate carriage of children’s channel Nicktoons on its platform on June 30, 2014.

    Sky Deutschland and Nicktoons’ parent company Viacom International Media Networks have decided in mutual consent not to continue the licence agreement for the distribution of the pay-TV channel in Germany and Austria, the companies said in a statement.

    No reason was given for the decision. Sky, though, stresses in the statement that its focus lies on the expansion of its HD proposition. Nicktoons, however, has only been available in standard definition (SD).

    For children and families, Sky continues to have Disney Junior, Disney XD, Disney Cinemagic, Junior, Boomerang and Cartoon Network on board its platform.

    Nicktoons remains available in Germany on the cable networks of Unitymedia and Kabel BW and within the mobile TV offering of Deutsche Telekom among other carriage partners. With programmes from the areas of action, fantasy, adventure and comedy, the channel targets boys between 6 and 13 years of age.

    CTC Media looks to Hulu

    May 27, 2014 10.56 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul



    CTC Media NewRussia’s CTC Media is close to reaching an agreement with Hulu to have some of its shows distributed online in the US.

    Quoting CTC Media’s CEO Yuliana Slashcheva, Bloomberg reports that shows would be subtitled in English and offered on both the Hulu and Hulu Plus services. She added that final terms of a deal are now being discussed, with Russia’s state-run cinema agency also involved in the talks.

    Slashcheva also said: “co-operation with Hulu is a serious precedent for Russian producers of original content.

    “This will allow us not only to monetise our content on a new platform, but paves a way for promoting our original formats such as Molodezhka in international markets.”

    CTC Media is backed by Modern Times Group (MTG) and one of the leading commercial broadcasters in Russia.

    Hulu meanwhile operates a free ad-supported service of the same name with around 30 million users each month.

    Its paid-for Hulu Plus service has around 6 million users.

    4K Smash for French Open

    May 27, 2014 16.57 Europe/London By Donald Koeleman


    Yet another 4K first, this time it is the first live 4K broadcast over Digital Terrestrial, in this case TDF’s French DVB-T2 network carrying the country’s TNT service. And compressed in the HVEC, H.265 standard.

    As we see the rapid completion and establishment of the new compression standard based products, that at IBC, last September weren’t yet capable of live 4K compression, let alone at 50 or 60 frames per second.

    Various matches from the Centre Court at Roland Garros, home of the French open Tennis tournament, taking place from May 25 to June 8th, are being broadcast by TDF in DVB-T2 format to TNT, the national DTT service, and will be viewable on compatible Panasonic 4K TVs as well as other compatible 4K television sets.

    Compression software vendor Envivio,Inc., based in California, but with its research roots in the Rennes, France region, that included the TDF labs that helped establish MPEG in the first place, announced TDF will use its Muse Ultra HD software, running on the vendor’s 2RU high G5 server.

    The 4K video being distributed is encoded at 50 frames per second.

    Both TDF and Envivio expressed their content with the demonstration of their combined 4K powers:

    Alain Komly, deputy director at TDF, said; “The sharpness and rich quality of the video is absolutely stunning, and we are excited to present this emerging technology for the first time in France.”

    Adding: “Envivio has provided an outstanding contribution for the debut of live 4K HEVC video transmissions over a DTT network at the French Open tournament,”

    And an ‘extremely pleased’ Julien Signčs, Envivio’s president and CEO continues:
    “The French Open is one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world, and we are extremely pleased to provide the compression technology for this world-first, over-the-air broadcast in 4K Ultra HD, in partnership with TDF and TNT,”

    Expanding on his technology:
    “Our Muse video processing software has been fine-tuned for 4K to provide the best video quality possible, while leveraging the efficiency of HEVC to optimize bandwidth efficiency.”
