    Kansai TV demos UltraHD broadcast over ISDB-T

    Editor
    | 29 May 2014

    Weeks before the first 4KTV World Cup, leading Osaka commercial broadcaster Kansai TV has demonstrated an UltraHD TV terrestrial broadcast delivery service over ISDB-T.


    Kansai Telecasting Corporation is the leading commercial broadcast television station in Osaka and serves the Kansai region of Japan. Affiliated with the Fuji Network System, Kansai Telecasting Corporation caters to both local and nationwide audiences, providing drama, sports, news, documentary and variety programmes, as well as live entertainment, mobile content and feature film production.

    During the 4K demonstration, original Kansai TV content featuring the 2014 Osaka International Women's Marathon was transmitted by very low power from an indoor UHF antenna with 64QAM modulation to a receiving antenna licensed for the demonstration.

    To enable its service Kansai TV turned to Elemental Technologies to provide video processing technology encode 4K content in high efficiency video coding (HEVC). Elemental encoded the content in 4K/HEVC at full frame rates for transmission at 14.5Mbps over ISDB-T to a decoder for display on a Toshiba Regza UltraHD TV. The ISDB-T broadcast standard is claimed to drive efficiencies by enabling terrestrial TV and mobile terminal broadcasts over a single transmitter – in contrast to other standards, such as DVB-T2 which requires two transmitters. Japan, the Philippines, Costa Rica and multiple South American countries, crucially Brazil, are among the regions that have adopted ISDB-T.

    "We could not have done this without Elemental, which has set the pace for the industry in terms of proven 4K/HEVC transmissions and is the only video processing vendor that offers 4Kp60 live encoding with high quality video," said Koichi Ono, deputy director of the technology promotion division for the Kansai Telecasting Corporation's broadcast technology department.

    ZNBC scores World Cup sponsorship deal with MTN Zambia

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 30 May 2014

    MTN Zambia has entered a sponsorship agreement worth ZMW450,000 (US$64,748) with the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) to help fund the live broadcast of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

    The national free-to-air broadcaster has acquired the rights from FIFA to televise all 64 of matches from the World Cup finals in Brazil.

    "As Africa's number one football supporter and indeed a leading supporter of Zambian football, we are delighted to announce that we will be leading the way in bringing the Brazil soccer fever closer to fans in Zambia. We believe that through this sponsorship, a lot of Zambians will not miss out the action," said Clement Asante, chief marketing officer, MTN.

    Kenneth Maduma, ZNBC's director of news and current affairs, said the World Cup TV rights were acquired at a huge cost, and thanked MTN for "responding to our call and coming in as platinum sponsors".

    In addition to the partnership with ZNBC, MTN will sponsor World Cup fan zones in Lusaka and Copperbelt and a competition called 'Score like a pro'.

    Arabsat claims signal jamming originates in Ethiopia


    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 30 May 2014

    Television transmissions from channels carried by Arabsat have suffered intentional signal interference from international jammers based in Ethiopia, according to the regional satellite operator.



    The Saudi-based organisation says it resents the "illegal act" and expressed surprise at this "vandalism", given there are no Ethiopian or Eritrean channels among the direct-to-home (DTH) satellite bouquets broadcast via Arabsat.

    "This jamming may be aimed at some opponents' channels for one of the two countries' channels that are broadcast on board satellites near Arabsat 26 East neighbourhood or on board other satellites which Arabsat has no relation with," a statement said.

    Qatar's first satellite Es'hail 1 operates from the 25.5 degree East orbital location and, among other channels, carries news network Al Jazeera, which has been subject to intentional signal interference in previous years.

    The International Telecommunication Union and Arab League have both been informed of the satellite jamming, and Arabsat says it will not hesitate to take legal action against the culprits.

    Reliance Industries sets $679MN Network18 takeover in motion

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 30 May 2014

    Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) is set to take control of Network18 Media, including its subsidiary TV18 Broadcast (TV18), following board approval on Thursday (29 May) for what will become one of India's largest ever media acquisitions.

    RIL will invest INR40 billion (US$679 million) in the Independent Media Trust (IMT), of which RIL is the sole beneficiary, to acquire control of Network18 Media & Investments (NW18).

    "IMT would use the funds to acquire control over NW18 and TV18 resulting in ownership of about 78% in NW18 and 9% in TV18 and to acquire shares tendered in the open offers," said a statement to the Bombay Stock Exchange from the Mukesh Ambani-controlled Reliance Industries Ltd.

    The news follows an executive exodus from NW18, with the departure earlier this week of Group chief executive B Sai Kumar after 14 years, as well as chief operating officer Ajay Chacko, and chief financial officer RDS 'Binni' Bawa, who worked with NW18 for more than 19 years.

    Network18 is a significant presence in India's news and entertainment TV sector, and is also involved in movie production, print media, e-commerce and digital content. In the future, the acquisition is expected to provide content for RIL's 4G mobile service.

    Investment banker JM Financial Institutional Securities has been appointed to manage the open offers to acquire the public shareholdings in NW18, TV18 and fellow NW18 company Infomedia Press Ltd – in line with India's substantial acquisition and takeover regulations

    China bankrolls new cable TV operator to unify technology, integrate networks

    Rebecca Hawkes
    | 30 May 2014

    China is seeking to consolidate its vast cable television network by establishing a national operator called China Broadcasting Network Ltd.

    With a registered capital of ¥4.5 billion (US$728.48 million), China Broadcasting Network Ltd is expected to become the country's fourth largest cable network operator after China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom.

    The company initially plans to integrate financially strapped local cable companies currently operating in central and western areas of the country, according to the China Daily.

    Wang Xiaojie, head of the technology department with the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT), said it will focus on building a unified cable television network, setting up a common technology standard and helping to distribute content across different television stations.

    The new company will promote triple-play services, combining cable TV, telecommunications and Internet, SAPPRFT said.

    In 2010, the Chinese Government stated it planned to cut the number of cable networks, which are now estimated to run into hundreds, by introducing a national operator, however the operational plans had suffered delayed until this year.

    China Broadcasting Network will reportedly run cable network construction companies, operation and maintenance, as well as related consultancy and technical research and development.

    Zhao Jingchun, former bureau chief of Henan Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, is to be chairman.

    China had 224 million cable TV viewers by 2013, of which three-quarters subscribed to digital cable services. China is expected to add 25 million cable viewers in the next three years, according to SAPPRFT.

    Multiscreen advertising can improve reach — in theory

    Michelle Clancy
    | 30 May 2014

    When managed together, TV and digital could hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers — enabling them to maximise the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens.

    So says new research from Nielsen, but so far the code for doing so hasn't been cracked.

    The analyst says that traditional TV still accounts for the lion's share of video viewing, and will likely continue to do so for a good while, it's clear that online and mobile is where the video growth is, and where future growth will be. Its research found that from the Q4 2012 to Q4 2013, the hours consumers spent watching online video grew 30%.

    "Not surprisingly, advertisers believe the integration of campaigns across multiple screens is important and will become even more so, but the effectiveness of these campaigns in maximising results has been mixed," the company noted.

    Specifically, a recent analysis of 45 campaigns measured by Nielsen Cross-Platform Campaign Ratings found that the vast majority of advertisers' 'integrated' TV and online campaigns did not achieve better results than if the TV and online advertising had been planned separately.

    On average, these integrated campaigns reached only 7.6% of the intended audience via both TV and online. That result is little different than the completely random duplication (7.0%) that advertisers could expect if they had planned their campaign for each screen independently.

    Nielsen believes that this highlights a true missed opportunity.

    "Nielsen research shows that, with careful planning and execution based on more precise identification of their desired TV and online audiences, marketers can generate an average of 8% greater reach, or achieve significantly higher frequency, without spending more money or altering their mix of spend," it said.

    Nielsen added: "Return on investment is every marketer's top priority for ad spending, and companies should be moving quickly to master the ability to claim the full synergies available between media. Those who crack the cross-platform advertising code the soonest will build an experience base that provides a significant edge over their competitors while also earning the greatest possible return on their advertising dollar."

    FreeWheel, Adap.tv team for programmatic advertising

    Michelle Clancy
    | 30 May 2014

    FreeWheel and Adap.tv have announced plans for the integration of Adap.tv's programmatic reserved technology into FreeWheel's FourFronts marketplace, enabling advertisers to purchase premium digital television from publishers using proprietary data.

    The planned integration will enable Adap.tv and FreeWheel clients to begin testing, through a pilot programme announced earlier this month, an audience reserved transaction model that enables buyers to use their own proprietary audience data to buy premium inventory on a reserved basis, in upfront-like aggregate deals from premium publishers. Adap.tv anticipates that Optimedia, MAGNA GLOBAL and Starcom MediaVest Group will participate in the pilot programme.

    "In September 2013, AOL, with other leaders in digital advertising, committed to simplifying and streamlining the buying and selling processes of premium digital advertising, including placing AOL reserved display and mobile inventory into its programmatic offering," said Teg Grenager, chief product officer and co-founder of Adap.tv, a division of AOL Platforms. "The goal of this pilot programme is to extend that commitment by bringing all of the key stakeholders together to test, learn and move the industry forward toward the inevitable multi-channel, data-driven world of TV, as well as enhancing the business models underpinning it."

    Programmatic buying of audiences in a reserved fashion has not been possible in video for two reasons: advertisers don't want to share the valuable consumer data, and publishers don't want to place their premium inventory into real-time bidding environments.

    The audience reservation solution developed for the pilot programme looks to solve these issues by placing the data in a protected data escrow environment, and allows publishers to forecast and reserve against it.

    "Audience fragmentation has necessitated a more data-driven approach to the buying process to capture greater value for our clients," said Karyn Johnson, SVP and digital director west at Optimedia. "This unprecedented collaboration with Adap.tv and FreeWheel is a logical next step for automation to begin streamlining, simplifying and unifying media buys in premium video across all channels."

    Brazil's TV Diário taps EditShare for World Cup workflow

    Gabriel Miramar-Garcia
    | 30 May 2014

    TV Diário, an affiliate of Brazil's TV Globo located in Mogi das Cruzes, has upgraded its newsroom infrastructure with EditShare shared storage and flow media asset management for coverage of the upcoming World Cup games.

    "The World Cup games rank high among the world's most-watched events, and great coverage is a must to win in the ratings," said Romeu Alencar, director of engineering at TV Diário, which broadcasts to the World Cup home of the Belgium squad. "Beyond the TV Diário viewership, our news packages will collaborate with TV Globo affiliates, reaching an audience of more than two million. It is critical that we have the best infrastructure to capture the intensity and emotion of the games. EditShare has proven over and over again to be the best partner and, for TV Diário, the solution that best meets our requirements."

    TV Diário's crew will capture World Cup action using new Panasonic HPX-370 cameras and edit game coverage packages on Final Cut Pro X. The new EditShare infrastructure will facilitate tapeless ingest directly to the storage and project sharing among FCP X editors, allowing packages to be created quickly and collaboratively. In addition to serving as the hub for content, EditShare will also integrate with TV Diário's playout system, ensuring content availability and supporting critical playout scenarios from the broadcast server.

    "EditShare breaks down the silos that typically separate the various production systems you find at most TV stations – connecting the newsroom to other applications and tools by centralising content and providing a fast and efficient workflow for locating, sharing and editing material," said Andy Liebman, founder and CEO at EditShare. "With everything integrated, there is no delay in finding files or having to copy media from one system to the next; it's literally at your fingertips. And with the Flow media asset management layer fully integrated within the workflow, content is indexed and easily searched, allowing news staff to locate the right shot for the right story much, much faster."
