    | 29 May 2014

    Digital advertising specialist YuMe has partnered with JW Player on a streamlined solution for publishers to gain analytics on its audience engagement and in theory, better monetise their digital video content.

    YuMe's Audience-Aware SDK has become one of two proprietary SDKs that JW Player has automatically embedded into the JW6 Platform. The integration allows publishers to deploy in-stream audience surveys, gather validated insights on their audience makeup and gain access to YuMe's premium Audience Segments campaigns and interactive ad units through its Connected Audience Network and Video Reach.

    "Our distinctive partnership with JW Player accelerates time to monetisation for publishers and allows them to reap the many benefits of our SDK, including brand safety controls and audience insights," said Bob Hall, vice president of platform and partnerships at YuMe.

    Mobile video set to form majority of data traffic

    Michelle Clancy
    | 29 May 2014

    The amount of traffic generated by mobile video on worldwide networks is rapidly increasing and should account for over half of all data traffic by 2018, according to research firm iGR.

    Many factors are driving the use of mobile video, including consumers' infatuation with all types of video, both viewing and sharing, as well as the increasing number of mobile subscribers in the world plus the roll-out of LTE networks and the availability of mobile devices that easily support video. The widespread availability of TV everywhere options, Netflix and other OTT services are also big contributors.

    "iGR believes that mobile video traffic will increase over the forecast period due to consumers' fascination with video and their increasingly connected, mobile lifestyle," said Iain Gillott, president and founder of iGR, a market research consultancy focused on the wireless and mobile industry. "Even subscribers who only casually and infrequently use mobile data features today will watch increasing amounts of video content on their mobile devices by the end of the forecast period."

    Editor
    | 29 May 2014

    Responding to demand from those who do not own a smart TV but want to access the video on-demand service, Wuaki.tv has made its catalogue available to stream through Google's Chromecast device.

    At present around four-fifths of current Wuaki.tv users stream through a smart TV and aiming to tap into what it believes will be a significant market, the online video provider is making its catalogue of films and TV series available through the thumb-sized device. The Wuaki.tv catalogue includes content from major Hollywood studios, Warner Bros., Disney, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, as well as UK distributors including the BBC and ITV. Movies and TV series are available for both rental and purchase.

    Once plugged into a TV's HDMI socket, Chromecast users wil be able to stream HDTV content from a tablet, smartphone or other device directly to their TV's big screen over a Wi-Fi connection.

    "Google's Chromecast is a fantastic device, and we've already seen it is proving popular amongst our users in the UK and Spain" commented Josep Mitjŕ, co-founder of Wuaki.tv. "A high number of our users stream content directly to their SmartTVs, around 80%, through our dedicated apps. This agreement with Google to support Chromecast means even more Wuaki.tv users can enjoy our high-quality catalogue direct through the big screen, as well as on tablets, smartphones and games consoles."

    Canadian broadband provider Zazeen has selected Entone for its hybrid IPTV roll-out.

    Together with Acanac and Distributel, Zazeen has access to an ISP network with more than 200,000 subscribers in several markets. The joint companies offer video services through the Zazeen brand.

    Philips uWand partners with CSR for Bluetooth voice recognition

    May 29, 2014 08.59 Europe/London By Robert Briel


    uwand_userThe Bluetooth Smart remote platform from Wireless technology innovator CSR has been integrated into Philips’ uWand reference design, a complete firmware and hardware solution for developing pointing and gesture based remote controls.

    The CSR Smart Remote platform is an end-to-end solution with CSR1010, part of the CSR µEnergy range, and the CSR8510 to enable data transfer between a remote control and TV or STB. When coupled with Philips’ camera-based direct pointing technology, manufacturers using uWand can expect optimal battery life and an intuitive television navigation experience.

    “We wanted to ensure manufacturers using uWand could also count on a seamless Bluetooth Smart connectivity experience,” says Navin Natoewal, general manager at Philips Business Group Media Interaction.

    “We are happy to work with CSR’s µEnergy range because the company has an unequalled market heritage, having helped write the Bluetooth Smart standard, and this is reflected in its powerful platforms which offer advanced features without compromising battery life. Coupled with our unique pointing and gesture control technology, the uWand enables remote controls with fluid and accurate direct control.”

    Philips uWand also offers manufacturers the opportunity to integrate voice recognition in to their remote control solutions. In addition to communicating gestures, the CSR1010 is able to communicate voice commands over a Bluetooth Smart connection – further expanding the boundaries of Bluetooth Smart technology.

    “Today’s wireless remote controls need to cope with seamlessly navigating a range of services – allowing consumers to browse the web, play games and access video on demand services – while not having to regularly charge their devices,” says Anthony Murray, SVP, Business Group at CSR.

    “Our Smart Remote platform enables developers to bring market-leading products with this experience to market and we are delighted to be working with Philips uWand to deliver a more intuitive, direct pointing solution.”

    Michelle Clancy
    | 29 May 2014

    Multiscreen video logistics Clearleap has launched into the Latin American market with a regional headquarters in Brickell, Miami's international business district.

    It has also appointed Tom McCarthy as vice president of sales for Latin America, to drive business across the region. McCarthy brings more than 20 years of experience to his role, having worked directly with major brands such as Tandberg Television (now part of Ericsson) and Omneon/Harmonic in Latin America. The launch comes on the heels of the company's successful round of $20 million funding, which is being used to accelerate Clearleap's domestic and global expansion.

    Clearleap's platform provides management and delivery of premium video over both IP and traditional pay-TV networks.

    "The increasing consumption of media over mobile platforms in Latin America is creating a multiscreen audience that we have come to find familiar in today's new digital landscape; an audience demanding premium content anytime, anywhere and on any device," said Braxton Jarratt, CEO at Clearleap. "The incredible success we have experienced in the US and EMEA is proof of our ability to enable broadcasters, pay-TV operators and content providers in LATAM to address and meet the needs of the changing TV industry. By placing highly qualified personnel in the region, and taking a strong and committed approach, we are certain that we can successfully serve the market, our customers and ultimately, the consumer."

    Freesat offers first pay service with Curzon films on demand

    Editor
    | 29 May 2014

    As it ramps up its Freetime connected TV service, used by two-fifths of its customers, UK free-to-air satellite provider Freesat is to enhance the bouquet with the Curzon Home Cinema film-on-demand player.

    The launch marks both Freesat's first film-on-demand service and its first ever pay-per-view player. Freetime users have the the ability to watch the latest independent film releases created and curated by one of the UK's leading independent cinema groups from Ł1 per film, without an on-going monthly subscription fee. Curzon Home Cinema films can also, where available, be streamed the same day that the film is released in the cinema.

    "Freesat is a fantastic new partner for Curzon and we are proud to offer their Freetime viewers this unmatched cinema at home experience utilising the very best new on-demand technologies," commented Curzon Home Cinema director Phil Mordecai. "The launch of the exciting new Curzon Home Cinema online video service in combination with the launch of the Freesat App illustrates our unprecedented support for this growing sector. Our curated seasons and pioneering cinema content makes Curzon and Curzon Home Cinema a clear home for any film fan."

    Added Emma Scott, Freesat's managing director, said: "We are excited to launch our first film-on-demand player, which enables Freesat viewers to watch some of the best independent films available, often on the day they are released in the cinema."

    The Curzon Home Cinema Player will join Freesat's existing TV players, including BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD, Demand 5 and YouTube, plus BBC News and BBC Sport apps, and will be available initially on all Humax Freetime set-top boxes and Panasonic Freetime smart TVs from June 2014.

    Ofcom sets out plans to secure UK DTT in mobile world

    Editor
    | 29 May 2014

    With 4G networks expanding rapidly in the UK, broadcast and communications regulator Ofcom has set out plans to protect DTT services which use much-valued wireless spectrum.

    Ofcom says that it is tasked with having to strike a balance between offering viewers the ability to continue to have the free-to-view TV services they value without another switchover while allowing consumers and businesses to get faster and cheaper Internet on the move. It sees its challenge as having to carefully manage the limited supply of spectrum and ensure that all users have access to the appropriate amount.

    In The Future of Free to View TV paper, Ofcom considers how current free-to-view DTT platforms might need to develop in the future in order to remain competitive and relevant to viewers, as television platforms increasingly deliver both connected services such as catch-up TV and higher quality pictures such as HDTV services. It considers the potential long-term options for delivering free-to-view television, including over broadband networks.

    The regulator stresses that its document is not offering a precursor to any specific regulatory decisions, but merely providing context to its decision-making process around a potential change in use of the 700MHz band of spectrum and also to its engagement in international debates around the future of 470-694MHz spectrum. It is also part of a desire to contribute to the wider public debate around the future of free-to-view television in the UK.

    "Ofcom's role is to ensure the UK makes the best and most efficient use of its airwaves, which is vital to enable UK's digital economy to meet consumers' needs," said Ofcom chief executive, Ed Richards. "Our plans will allow digital terrestrial TV to thrive, while ensuring the UK's mobile infrastructure can support consumer demand and economic growth. We also recognise the important role the programme making and special events (PMSE) sector plays in the cultural life of the nation."

    Vast majority of cord-cutters happy leaving pay-TV

    Joseph O'Halloran
    | 29 May 2014

    Bad news for US pay-TV providers: research from nScreenMedia has revealed that 84% of broadband consumers who have cut the cord are at least somewhat happy with their decision.

    The nScreen nSights: View My Video – Consumer Digital Media Consumption survey also reveals that nearly two-fifths (37%) are so happy with their decision to rely solely on online video and over-the-top (OTT) services that they will never come back. Just 17% are unhappy with decision, and 9% wish they still had the service; 29% missed absolutely nothing about the pay-TV services they cancelled. Interestingly, given their perceived importance, just 9% said they missed sports services and 6% premium films. That said, just under a third (31%) said they missed shows they couldn't find anywhere else.

    Attempting to define who exactly the cord-utters are, nScreenMedia found bulk of them come from people in the 18-49 age range. Millennials, those aged between 18-29, are heavily represented in the group that have never had pay-TV services. 19% report they do not have pay-TV, while just 5% of those in the 29-49 age range say this. In all, 17% of US broadband consumers say they had pay-TV and now no longer have it. 10% say they have never subscribed to pay-TV, and 74% say they currently have it.

    Analysing the trends revealed, nScreenMedia said its findings were not good news for pay-TV service providers. It argued that if the companies are to reverse the downward trend in subscriptions they need to find a way to appeal to this growing group of defectors. "Clearly price is a strong factor in the decision of consumers to leave pay-TV," said principal analyst Colin Dixon. "So, part of any solution the industry tries to win back defectors must include lower priced options. However, are there other things the industry can do to appeal to cord-cutters?" Dixon noted that one of the things pay-TV has started to try is creative bundles of broadband and content to try and lure non-subscribers.
