    informitv validates V-Nova PERSEUS video compression performance

    Joseph O'Halloran | 17 April 2016


    Since it emerged not so long ago V-Nova’s PERSEUS has shaken up the video delivery market and its claims to be a ‘game-changer’ have now been independently verified.

    In an independent evaluation, independent consultancy informitv found that V-Nova PERSEUS compression was visually lossless for video contribution at key operating points including 1080i25 at 75 Mbps; 1080p50 at 150 Mbps and 2160p50 at 200 Mbps. In addition, it found that High Dynamic Range (HDR) images encoded with V-Nova PERSEUS deliver higher fidelity output without any compression overhead. 8K UHD-2 format images of 7680×4320 pixels at 48 bits per pixel were also found to be visually lossless at 40:1 compression, which is equivalent to the data rate of uncompressed high-definition video.

    The test combined qualitative and quantitative examinations of sample material and all the HD and 4K Ultra HD tests were performed live on P.Link 4K , V-Nova’s contribution encoder and decoder solution already used for key sports events in Europe and li and selected by Eutelsat for coverage of the European football championships in 4K/Utra HD.

    “We were amazed by the claims for V-Nova PERSEUS but the results of our rigorous evaluations speak for themselves,” said Dr William Cooper of informitv. “V-Nova PERSEUS compression proved visually lossless for ultra-high-definition production applications at impressively low data rates, as confirmed by objective measurements. V-Nova can also deliver 4K High Dynamic Range video today and V-Nova PERSEUS compression is already 8K ready.”

    HbbTV 2.0 updated for UK and Italy deployments

    The HbbTV Association has announced the immediate availability of HbbTV 2.0.1.

    This update of the 2.0 specification adds a small number of features necessary for the broad adoption of HbbTV in Italian and UK markets. The HbbTV Association intends for this version to replace 2.0 and expects the first compliant terminals in spring 2017.

    HbbTV 2.0.1 was written in close collaboration with the UK’s DTG and the HD Forum Italia. The additions allow HbbTV technology to replace MHEG and MHP in the UK and Italy respectively. Key additions include:

    – Better user interface control when changing channels
    – Better integration with version 1.4 of CI Plus
    – Improved audio support for accessibility
    – Support for graphics resolutions higher than 1280×720
    – Encryption of media delivered via broadband where a full DRM is not needed
    – Inclusion of new Web APIs: ‘Web Audio’ and ‘Encrypted Media Extensions’
    – Few version 2.0 clarifications and updates.

    To ensure full interoperability on the newly added features, the HbbTV Association will publish tests for those features for inclusion in the HbbTV Test Suite by the end of the year.

    “The DTG is pleased to see the publication of HbbTV 2.0.1 including the results of last year’s co-operation between ourselves and HbbTV. Updating HbbTV 2.0 to take into account features used in the UK is a critical milestone on the path towards the introduction of HbbTV in the UK,” said Richard Lindsay-Davies, DTG CEO.

    “We look forward to continuing our work with HbbTV and the UK industry to develop further business opportunities based on the combination of HbbTV and the DTG D-Book.”

    “We are very proud to have contributed to the release of HbbTV version 2.0.1 and have fully endorsed it in our new HD Book 4.0 for the Italian market,” stated Benito Manlio Mari, HD Forum Italia president.

    “We are keen to promote the implementation phase of the first services to encourage new business opportunities for the Italian and the European market. This phase will be made available on HbbTV 2.0.1 receivers in the beginning of next year.”

    France rules on RCSS Eutelsat receivables

    The enforcement judge of the High Court of Paris has lifted the attachment from receivables owed by Eutelsat to the Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) under their current contracts, obtained earlier by the Cypriot company Hulley Enterprises, a former shareholder in Yukos.

    Its ruling effectively says that the assets did not belong to Russia but were the property of RSCC. As a result, there were not Russia’s debt.

    Commenting on the ruling, Yuri Prokhorov, RSCC DG, said: “We are satisfied with the equitable decisions of the French court.

    “Also, we are looking forward to further successful cooperation with our strategic partner, Eutelsat, in satellite communications and digital broadcasting”.

    Despite the ruling, RSCC notes that the proceedings may take years as defeated parties will move for a new trial.

    YouTube gives boost to creators in content dispute

    Editor | 01 May 2016


    In the wake of ongoing controversy regarding the DRM system, YouTube has announced what it says is a solution that will allow videos to earn revenue while a Content ID claim is being disputed.



    You Tube 1 May 2016The Content ID platform is designed to enable content owners discover, and more importantly receive compensation for, any potential unauthorised use of their intellectual property on the online video service. However, despite mainly being used appropriately by authorised content owners, creators have complained that they are being plagued by ‘Content ID trolls’ making false claims.

    To address this issue, YouTube is amending the Content ID system so that when both a creator and someone making a claim choose to monetise a video, it will continue to run ads on that video and hold the resulting revenue separately. Once the Content ID claim or dispute is resolved, the online video giant will pay out that revenue to the appropriate party.

    “We understand just how important revenue is to our creator community, and we’ve been listening closely to concerns about the loss of monetisation during the Content ID dispute process,” said David Rosenstein, YouTube Content ID group product manager. “Currently videos that are claimed and disputed don’t earn revenue for anyone, which is an especially frustrating experience for creators if that claim ends up being incorrect while a video racks up views in its first few days.

    “At YouTube, one of our core values is a belief in the freedom of opportunity. We believe anyone should have the opportunity to earn money from the videos they create and turn their channels into successful businesses. We strongly believe in fair use and believe that this improvement to Content ID will make a real difference.”

    In addition to its work on the Content ID dispute process, YouTube said it was also paying ‘close attention’ to creators’ concerns about copyright claims on videos they believe may be fair use.

    Digital dominating West Euro, North American home entertainment

    Editor | 01 May 2016


    Research from Strategy Analytics has revealed how in the key markets of Western Europe and North America the home video entertainment market is in the middle of a transformation to digital formats.



    netflix2The analyst found that in North America, the introduction of subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) services is disrupting the sell-through and rental business models the home video industry has relied on for decades while simultaneously attracting new revenue. This has led to the home video entertainment market in North America being worth $26.01 billion at the end of 2015, up 8.6% year-on-year. Of this, digital comprised 65% of revenue and physical media such as DVD and Blu-ray accounted for the remaining 35% of sales.

    Strategy Analytics found that identical dynamics are being applied in Western Europe where a home video entertainment market worth €11.89 billion in 2015 has witnessed the introduction of SVOD services which now accounts for just over a fifth of revenue.

    BBC weekly global audience hits record high

    Editor | 01 May 2016


    Figures released by the BBC Global Audience Measure (GAM) have shown that the UK broadcaster has reached a record weekly audience of 348 million people worldwide.

    BBC WW 1 May 2016This represents a 13% year-on-year increase for the combined measured reach of international content, both news and entertainment, for the year 2015/16.

    Drilling deeper, the figures show that the BBC’s weekly global news audience has increased by 38 million people annually, up 13%, to a total of 320 million. For the second year running, television, with an audience of 162 million, is a bigger platform than radio (147 million), for the BBC’s international news services. All platforms have grown since last year – television, radio and digital combined boast an increase of 80 million.

    The BBC World Service saw its audience increase to 246 million, from 210 million the year before. This growth was largely driven by new TV news bulletins in languages other than English. BBC Global News, which comprises BBC World News and bbc.com, has seen its audience grow to 108 million.

    The 10 markets for BBC’s international news services are the US with 35 million, or 43 million when including BBC Worldwide; Nigeria (35 million); India (23 million); Pakistan (13 million); Iran (12 million); Egypt (11 million); Tanzania (10 million); digital-only Brazil (8 million); Afghanistan (7 million); Bangladesh (6 million).

    In total, 152 million people are accessing BBC news in English; 201 million in another language. The audience for non-English language TV was 91 million.

    “These are fantastic results which show the BBC going from strength to strength around the world and demonstrate the global appetite for accurate, impartial news,” said Francesca Unsworth, director of BBC World Service Group. “We’re about to begin the biggest expansion of the World Service since the 1940s… This will ensure we reach more people than ever, especially in countries where media freedom is under threat.”

    Mobile video becomes huge ad vector for Canada

    Michelle Clancy | 01 May 2016


    Mobile continues to grow as a strategy for reaching consumers in Canada's advertising market.

    canadaAccording to an analysis of all impressions run through Videology's platform in Canada in the first quarter of 2016, mobile devices were used on 64% of all Canadian campaigns. This is an increase of 12% over Q4 2015.

    “Today, consumers simply see video as video,” said Ryan Ladisa, MD, Videology Canada. “Whether it's mobile, TV, desktop or OTT, consumers just want to view the content they love. It's encouraging to see cross-screen usage within our platform as it proves marketers are embracing this evolution of content consumption in their advertising strategy.”

    All campaigns run in Q4 used demographic targeting such as age or gender to reach their target audience. Almost 50% of ad impressions included behavioural targeting data, which was up 11% from last quarter. In addition, frequency caps were used on 49% of campaigns.

    In Q1, most campaigns were bought on a TV-like, guaranteed basis. While campaigns bought on a cost per completed views (CPCV) basis were down 40% this quarter, there was an increase in those bought using dynamic pricing (DCPM). And although 15-second spots continued to be the most popular length among advertisers in Q1, their share has dropped about 15% versus one year prior. Thirty-second ads made up 35% of all creatives.

    Videology also recently found that marketers are using their TV advertising plans to inform their digital and mobile video ad buys. According to an analysis of all impressions run through Videology's platform in the fourth quarter of 2015, the number of US video campaigns using TV audience data to target with digital video increased 114% year-on-year.
