    Altice, i24NEWS launch journalism programme for high-schoolers

    Altice USA and i24NEWS have announced an experiential media programme for local NY tri-state area high schools, dubbed Altice Connects Global Voices.

    The programme invites students from local high schools to engage with the i24NEWS team to discuss current events, develop informed opinions, and understand the importance of global awareness, tolerance and journalistic integrity. Students will also participate in the creation of media content that they can share via social media and on AlticeConnects.com.

    Altice USA is the fourth largest cable operator in the US. i24NEWS, available on Optimum TV Channel 102, is an international television news organisation with studios in Tel Aviv, New York City and Paris.

    “Now, more than ever, we need to empower students to think critically about the events within their communities and across the globe,” said Lee Schroeder, SVP, government and community affairs, Altice USA. “Through Altice Connects Global Voices, high school students will be exposed to a variety of perspectives as they form their own opinions on current events and actively engage in dialogue on global issues with i24NEWS.”

    To kick-off the programme launch, Lawrence High School students participated in a behind the scenes experience at the i24NEWS studio in Times Square, New York City. The students produced short video pieces that include interviews with the i24NEWS talent and leadership teams, learned about the inner workings of a live broadcast, and conducted interviews on the value of the global perspective and non-partisan news.

    “As the media landscape changes rapidly, it is critical to emphasise the importance of well-informed, unbiased journalism and we are thrilled to work with Altice USA to help shape the next generation of journalists and leaders within our communities,” said Frank Melloul, CEO of i24NEWS.

    VR specialist Here Be Dragons hires Tumblr founder

    Here Be Dragons, a specialised experience studio comprised of creative innovators in virtual and augmented reality, has hired former Tumblr president John Maloney as networks producer.

    Maloney will expand the company’s reach into all aspects of the content, experiential and installations business with an aim to see what the VR medium can accomplish for creators, brands, businesses, and traditional media platforms alike.

    Previously, he was employee No 3 at the now-ubiquitous Tumblr – acquired in 2013 by Yahoo for $1.1 billion. From 2008-2012, Maloney oversaw Tumblr as president. In 2015, Maloney was the interim president of Circa, a tech news start-up, which was acquired by Sinclair Broadcasting Group. Later, Maloney founded Terrapin Bale, a seed stage venture fund with a current portfolio of 30 companies.

    “John is a rare force – one who sees where the market is headed before others do,” said Patrick Milling-Smith, co-founder and president of Here Be Dragons. “Together, we’re going to test the boundaries of what storytelling and experiences in this medium are capable of – engaging, empowering and educating a community form a practical technical and creative standpoint.”

    “I'm excited to jump in with this accomplished, talented team,” said Maloney. “VR is in need of a new standard. There are many creatives and brands doing inspiring work in the medium – but it's still early days. We want to be a force that unifies and emboldens — we will focus on unlocking the medium's potential that consumers and content creators are ready to experience.”

    Egyptian court jails broadcast content pirate

    An Egyptian court has ordered a year’s imprisonment and record fine for a man found guilty of illegally distributing and selling stolen broadcast content from OSN channels.

    The Middle East pay-TV operator has welcomed the ruling of the Economic Court of Alexandria, who found the defendant guilty of two charges of setting up an illegal broadcast network and breaking intellectual property laws. He was fined EP100,000.

    OSN is part of a regional broadcast anti-piracy coalition, along with MBC, Rotana, ART, CNE, MPA, and satellite operators Eutelsat, Arabsat and Gulfsat. The members of the coalition share intelligence on content theft, and work together to raise awareness about the extent of the issue across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

    The coalition claims that almost 200 Western content infringements and over 4,000 Arabic content infringements occurred in the region in the six months to October 2016.

    “The judges have sent out a very strong message. Stealing content from OSN, and other legal owners, can land you in jail as well as face very big fines in Egypt,” Sophie Moloney, OSN chief legal officer and spokesperson on content protection is quoted as saying in Arabian Business.

    “We are extremely grateful to the Egyptian Police and enforcement authorities for their hard work on this case. Together we can do a lot to thwart the criminals who steal our content, and help to protect the rights of the creative people who make the wonderful entertainment programmes and movies we all love to watch.”

    Hotstar, Zapr to develop mobile audience engagement service

    Star TV-owned over-the-top (OTT) platform Hotstar and Bangalore-based media tech company Zapr Media Labs have formed a partnership to drive mobile audience analytics in India.

    In what the companies are calling a ‘trail-blazing move’, Star has taken a strategic minority stake in Zapr to help create an understanding of mobile audiences that can be used by brands to create personalised communication and offers. More robust audience analytics and better accountability for results in the mobile marketing world are the partnership’s aims.

    The OTT platform registered more than 60 million users during the month of January, and it claims some of the highest daily engagement among its followers.

    Zapr’s proprietary technology platform measures television viewership across over 600 channels in India, providing targeted digital analytics and insight into offline consumption behaviour. Now it plans to invest further in research and development and grow the team across cross platform data sciences, analytics and product management.

    “In the transition from the broadcast world to the digital world, advertisers got a data bonanza but in the process had to give up the ability to engage consumers who are actually paying attention to what they are saying,” said Hotstar CEO Ajit Mohan.

    “Hotstar has the opportunity to build the world’s first platform on digital where consumers are engaged and immersed while at the same time delivering deep audience understanding that allows brands to talk to individuals rather than segments. We believe that we have a shot at creating the world’s premier truly personalised advertising service, which benefits both brands and consumers,” Mohan added.

    Sandipan Mondal, co-founder and CEO, Zapr Media Labs, said: “Over the past few years, Zapr has grown into one of the world’s largest media consumption repositories and audience cross-targeting platforms and this partnership further reinforces the incredible response we have received from our partners across brands, agencies and broadcasters.”

    Moonlight, La La Land to stream in China on iQIYI

    Baidu subsidiary iQIYI has won exclusive streaming rights in China to recent Best Picture Oscar winner Moonlight and runner-up La La Land.

    iQIYI says that these latest movie titles will “strengthen its edge” as the streaming platform with the “largest online library of licensed films in China”. It has already concluded content deals with 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate and the British Film Institute.

    The Salesman, which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film, has also been acquired by the Beijing-based video-on-demand (VOD) platform, along with Moonlight (directed by Barry Jenkins), and La La Land, which netted five Oscars including Best Actress (Emma Stone) and Best Director (Damien Chazelle).

    The first feature-length film to be financed by iQIYI film division, The Summer is Gone, has been selected to screen at the New Directors/New Films Festival in New York on 15 March, the company has also announced. Directed by Zhang Dalei, The Summer is Gone will have its theatrical release in China on 24 March.

    In January 2017 iQIYI raised US$1.53 billion in funding to help invest in content and better compete with rivals Youku Tudou and Tencent’s digital video platform.

    AR, VR, embedded-vision mobile device shipments to pass 460MN by 2021

    Shipments of machine/embedded vision mobile, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) devices will grow from just over one million units in 2016 to more than 460 million by 2021, according to ABI Research.

    The Machine Vision in Augmented and Virtual Reality Markets report anticipates that devices, such as Google Tango-enabled ones, with dedicated machine vision hardware like sensors and co-processors will be led by mobile devices with a smaller number of VR and AR devices rounding out the forecast.

    “While the market is still nascent, tethered VR products rely on machine vision by nature and other device categories already include embedded vision in their near-term product road-maps,” said Michael Inouye, principal analyst at ABI Research. “The mobile space is particularly intriguing, as many devices can already perform several vision applications with software alone — Blippar, for example, won best mobile app for virtual or augmented reality at MWC 2017. Readily available software-based vision applications greatly expand the potential user base, but the added robustness and accuracy afforded by dedicated hardware will engender new use cases. This is especially true in enterprise and commercial settings; building off an already extensive foundation, mobile devices with dedicated embedded systems will support an extensive range of use cases and needs.”

    “Our market forecast is aggressive and counts on several major mobile device manufacturers releasing models with embedded vision,” added MA and VP at research Sam Rosen. “But current sentiments point to 2019 to 2020 as a key inflection period where the applications enabled by embedded vision will increasingly become integral elements of our day-to-day activities. There is also a confluence between some device categories, such as mobile and mobile-reliant VR, that further support these trends, but ultimately the applications will decide how pervasive embedded vision truly becomes — as of today, we’re optimistic.”

    Norigin Media will deploy its multiscreen TV-App modules and framework to develop the custom designed applications for the broadcaster. They will be integrated directly towards MTV Oy´s over-the-top (OTT) platform, which already supports the Katsomo apps.

    MTV Oy has already enjoyed success with apps for Katsomo and genres offered include varied segments of kids, sports, TV series and films that are said to be ‘uniquely’ popular within the OTT space.

    Nearly half of global consumers willing to stop, watch less pirated video content

    In what it calls the largest global consumer piracy online survey ever conducted, content protection firm Irdeto believes that education could reduce the number of individuals who watch pirated video content.

    The Irdeto Global Consumer Piracy Survey of more than 25,000 adults across 30 countries found that despite the high number (52%) of consumers around the globe indicating they watched pirated video content, nearly half (48%) would stop or watch less illegal content after being informed that piracy causes the media industry damage.

    Irdeto believes that such a willingness by nearly half of consumers to change their viewing habits speaks to the huge impact that education could have on reducing the number of people who pirate video content.

    Regionally, 45% of consumers in Europe and 32% of consumers in the US pirate content, compared to 61% in APAC and 70% in Latin America, suggesting that popular content is more readily available in Europe and the US, lowering their need to pirate content.

    The survey also found that even though 70% of consumers across the globe recognised that producing or sharing pirated video content was illegal, fewer people, 59%, were aware that streaming or downloading was also against the law. In Latin America, this gap was widest with 75% of respondents stating that producing or sharing pirated content is illegal, compared to only 60% recognising that streaming or downloading is illegal.

    Latin America and APAC were found to be the regions where a positive outcome of an industry-wide education initiative could have the most impact. Almost three-fifths of consumers who watch pirated content in Latin America, and 55% in APAC, stated they would watch less or stop watching pirated video content after learning that piracy results in revenue loss from studios, affecting investments in future content creation. Conversely, only 45% in Europe and 38% of respondents from the US said that they would watch less or stop watching pirated content.

    Laptops were universally the preferred device for the consumption of pirated video content. Consumers in Europe (65%), APAC (45%), Latin America (53%) and the US (41%) all stated that this was their most frequent method of consuming pirated content. However, many 18-24-year-olds surveyed indicating that they use mobile or streaming devices the most to watch or access pirated video content. Despite a lot of media interest, the Kodi box only registered as a top device to pirate content in the UK, with 11% of pirating consumers using the streaming device to access illegal content. The highest percentage of Kodi users in the UK were in the 35-44 and 55+ age groups at 18% each. This is compared with 3% of 18-24-year-olds.

    The conclusion to be drawn, says Irdeto, is that simply educating consumers in these regions about damages associated with revenue loss may not be enough. It said that the answer could be an education initiative focusing on piracy’s impact on the creative process of producing content, coupled with knowledge on how piracy is often linked to criminal organisations and that pirated content could include malware aimed at stealing consumer’s personal information, may resonate better in those markets.

    “A battle is being waged in the media and entertainment industry,” said Irdeto CEO Doug Lowther. “Legal content offerings are no longer only competing against each other. Pirates have undoubtedly grown into a formidable foe that should not be ignored. With more than half of consumers openly admitting to watching pirated content, it is crucial that the industry tackle piracy head-on. To do so will require technology and services to protect the legal content as well as a comprehensive education programme to help change the behaviour of consumers. Coupled with a 360° anti-piracy strategy, the market is fully prepared to take the battle against piracy to the next level.”
