    NAB 2017: Harmonic brings playout capabilities to cloud and 360 Solutions


    Video delivery infrastructure firm Harmonic is bringing the playout capabilities from its Spectrum media server to the VOS Cloud media processing platform and VOS 360 cloud media processing software as a service (SaaS) solution.


    harmonic 23 april2017The new functionality in both VOS offerings includes support for graphics, branding, and digital video effects (DVE) for both file-based and live workflows. By helping drive the transition to software-based and cloud workflows, Harmonic says that it is allowing video content and service providers to launch broadcast and OTT offerings faster, increase their operational efficiencies and reduce OPEX and CAPEX.

    “Today's video content and service providers are turning to the cloud for video preparation and delivery because of the increased workflow efficiency and flexibility that it provides, along with other benefits such as scalability and agility,’ said Bart Spriester, senior vice president, video products at Harmonic. “Bringing the playout capabilities found in our Spectrum media servers to the VOS Cloud and VOS 360 solutions opens up additional cost savings for operators, speeding up their operations and enabling additional types of monetization, such as brand reinforcement, pop-up channels, rapid platform deployment and expansion, graphic avails and more.”

    NAB 2017: Blue Man Group goes VR


    Harmonic will showcase 360-degree immersive virtual reality (VR) at the 2017 NAB Show with a demonstration featuring prerecorded content of Blue Man Group from their stage at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.


    Blue Man Group 23 April 2017The demonstration will feature 8K production by Digital Immersion, Tiledmedia's Tiled VR Streaming technology integrated with the Harmonic PURE Compression Engine, Viaccess-Orca's Connected Sentinel Player for secure playback and Samsung Gear VR headsets. Through HEVC tiling technology and compression, broadcasters and other content providers can deliver a video resolution 10 times higher than that offered by existing, commercially deployed VR services, the companies said.

    Harmonic will also host booth appearances by the performance art company. “Harmonic and Blue Man Group share a passion for stunning imagery that entertains and awakens the senses in new ways,” said Doug Baldinger, vice president, creative development at Blue Man Productions. “This is the first VR experience for Blue Man Group. We look forward to working with Harmonic at the 2017 NAB Show and bringing our energy and music to life in the virtual reality domain.”

    “Harmonic and its ecosystem partners are setting the benchmark for VR video quality and bandwidth efficiency,” said Bart Spriester, SVP, video products at Harmonic.

    “Collaborating with Blue Man Group makes this demonstration all the more exciting, as they truly exemplify innovation in entertainment, blending beautifully with the technology innovation being showcased by Harmonic. If you've never seen Blue Man Group or experienced the mesmerizing power of VR technology, stop by the booth and enjoy a one-of-a-kind show in native UHD resolution.”

    The content was shot live on stage by Digital Immersion using an innovative VR rig to capture dynamic moves and put the viewer into otherwise impossible perspectives during the group's live performance. The video content can be viewed on YouTube, and can be streamed for viewing on Samsung Gear VR headsets at the Samsung store.

    ESPN adds MLB’s Intentional Talk to line-up


    Sports network ESPN will add MLB Network’s popular studio programme Intentional Talk to its afternoon line-up.

    ESPN 28 April 2017Starting on 1 May, the year-round, weekday show will air Monday through Friday on ESPN2 from 4-5pm ET during the season, and will air as a 30-minute telecast in the offseason. Intentional Talk will also continue to air in its regular 5pm timeslot on MLB Network.

    Intentional Talk is an open forum where everyone and everything are the subject of discussion, and baseball’s entertaining personalities are always on display. Veteran sports broadcaster Chris Rose and 2004 World Series Champion Kevin Millar will continue to serve as the primary co-hosts for Intentional Talk, with ESPN MLB commentators now periodically appearing on the show. MLB Network will continue to produce Intentional Talk and the show’s format will remain intact.

    “Intentional Talk provides us with a highly entertaining, weekday afternoon MLB presence as we have with other signature sports properties,” Burke Magnus, ESPN EVP, programming & acquisitions. “Intentional Talk joins Baseball Tonight, our long-standing MLB studio show, as a second and distinct MLB studio offering. The move provides us with more baseball studio content than we’ve ever had. These shows, combined with our 100-plus game schedule – including an annual Wild Card Game – are important parts of a myriad of cross-platform baseball content at ESPN, underscoring that MLB content is fundamental to ESPN’s offerings. We’re grateful to have such a productive relationship with our Major League Baseball partners and we look forward to our continued collaboration on this and many other projects.”

    Baseball Tonight, ESPN’s long-standing MLB studio brand, will continue to serve as ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball preview show and play an integral role in ESPN’s coverage of the national game of the week. Additionally, ESPN will continue to televise Baseball Tonight roadshows from the sport’s most significant events, including the World Series, MLB All-Star and the Home Run Derby, MLB Wild Card, Opening Day, the Little League World Series and more. Finally, ESPN will continue to regularly integrate baseball studio coverage into other weekly franchises, such as Monday Night Baseball and Wednesday Night Baseball.

    “These exciting digital-first initiatives are the first steps in Discovery’s long-term strategy to accelerate our growth in Asia with digital at the core,” said Arthur Bastings, president & MD, Discovery Networks Asia Pacific.

    “I am thrilled to officially launch the first of many exciting initiatives with Discovery.

    HBO prepares back-to-back finale for debut Mandarin original


    HBO Asia’s first Mandarin original series The Teenage Psychic will air its final two episodes back to back on 30 April, following strong ratings and positive reviews.
