Infographic: Sochi Olympics Live Video Workflow | Media Entertainment Information | Scoop.it

Live streaming every phase of every sporting event of the Olympics is a big task. This year NBC expanded their targeted devices to include iOS, Android and Windows smartphones, PCs, Macs, and tablets. The combination of the increased number of live feeds and the increased number of targeted devices creates a complex live video workflow requiring coordination between a number of technologies and partners.

The State of MPEG-DASH Deployment

The State of MPEG-DASH Deployment | Media Entertainment Information | Scoop.it

MPEG-DASH is slowly but surely becoming the main competitor to HLS, driven by adoption by major players and intrinsic strengths. Here's who's using it now, who's going to be soon, and what challenges still need to be addressed.

 

Last year at the European Broadasting Union’s BroadThinking conference, the DASH Industry Forum (DASH-IF) conducted a survey of 13 major European broadcasters on MPEG-DASH adoption. At the time, about three-quarters of them projected to have DASH deployed by end of first half of 2014. Primary sources of concern for the broadcasters were the availability of DASH enabled clients and packaging tools. One year later, we haven’t seen many broadcasters deploying DASH in production, but the traction seems to have shifted to over-the-top (OTT) content distributors and operators.

 

So, who are the actors already in production or close to production with DASH? What are the remaining roadblocks for its adoption? How will DASH be positioned against existing Adaptive Bitrate technologies in the coming months? What is the exact status of the DASH standard and its most promising evolutions? What are the upcoming initiatives aiming at fostering DASH adoption? Let’s get a handle on where DASH is today, and where it’s headed.

Valery's curator insight, April 8, 2014 4:42 AM

Everybody (or nearly) is DASH compliant but when you really want to have it running, it is not exactly as smooth as expected.

Still, it seems to be really starting this time.

AT&T to develop in car video streaming service

AT&T to develop in car video streaming service | Media Entertainment Information | Scoop.it

US operator AT&T plans to develop an in-vehicle video service as part of its connected car offering, following on from the opening of a connected car centre in Atlanta, the AT&T Drive Studio in January.

AT&T Drive is a modular connected car platform that aims to package connectivity, billing, data analytics and infotainment to car makers and developers. The carrier has teamed up with multi-play services vendor QuickPlay Media to launch a live linear TV and video on demand streaming services to car makers collaborating with the operator in the AT&T Drive Studio.

According to QuickPlay, its solution includes a configurable, customisable client application, support for adaptive streaming, content protection with DRM solutions, dynamic advertising, banner ad support, multi-language support and featured content.

It added it will enable AT&T to provide in-car infotainment by allowing it to stream hundreds of live linear TV channels and hours of premium video on demand content.

”In-vehicle video services are going play a crucial part in making the next generation of connected cars,” said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, emerging devices at AT&T Mobility.

 

“Due to this collaboration, automotive manufacturers around the world will be able to provide consumers with cutting edge multiscreen entertainment.”

Connected car initiatives appear to be gaining momentum in 2014. Earlier this week, iPhone maker Apple announced the upcoming launch of Apple CarPlay, which will be available on select new cars in 2014. The firm claims it will be a smarter and safer way for consumers to use their iPhone in the car.

Last month, it came to light that the United States could soon make M2M connectivity in new vehicles mandatory, following research undertaken by the US Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). And at Mobile World Congress last month, automaker Ford rolled out an updated version of its Focus model, showcasing advanced drive assist and mobile connectivity features, while M2M specialist Jasper Wireless unveiled a cloud-based platform targeting the automotive OEM sector, helping car companies implement and enhance the connected car experience.

And in the first week of the year, leading tech firms teamed up with automotive manufacturers to create an industry alliance aimed at bringing the Android platform to connected cars. Audi, GM, Honda, Hyundai and Nvidia joined Google to form the Open Automotive Alliance (OAA).

Broadpeak takes the CDN further into the home

Broadpeak takes the CDN further into the home | Media Entertainment Information | Scoop.it

As we reported previously, the Broadpeak solution introduces very lightweight clients into the home router/gateway and these intercept the unicast stream requests made by a tablet or smartphone to an origin server. The client looks for a multicast stream of the linear content instead. The platform operator works with a content owner to make the most popular channels available in multicast, perhaps during peak times or for popular shows or live sports, or even 24/7. The nanoCDN client receives this multicast stream instead, then converts it to unicast ABR (adaptive bit rate) inside the home so it can be watched on the multiscreen devices without any changes to their apps.

 

By replacing multiple unicast streams with a single multicast stream in the broadband network, nanoCDN reduces the bandwidth demands for linear/live video. nanoCDN is pioneering because of the way it harnesses multicast within a CDN environment and because it makes in-home devices an extension of the CDN.
