The recurring rumors about Apple entering the TV set business are at fever pitch, with no less than former Apple President Jean-Louis Gassée recently jumping into the fray and joining the it-will-likely-happen bandwagon.
Gassée and I have been arguing about the idea of an Apple TV since 2008, when I was among the first to blog about the idea. Gassée had taken the position that since TVs are upgraded every five years on average, and computers every two years on average, melding the two would not make sense. The computer would make the TV obsolete too early.
Now, Gassée is usually right about Apple predictions, so what's changed?
In short, the TV set is on its way to becoming little more than a monitor that simply displays what's on handheld devices. Think about it: to be interactive, a TV no longer needs a computer built into it.
The new Xbox Live update launching tomorrow is the start of a rollout of lots of new content partners on the platform. But the big innovation will be allowing them to be navigated from a unified search mechanism powered by Microsoft's Bing.
The EBU's 67th General Assembly in Geneva opened with the announcement that 24 members have agreed to collaborate to unlock the full potential of Hybrid TV for a European rollout of the technology in 2012, writes David Fox.
Hybrid or Connected TV combines traditional viewing with internet and smart device applications to enhance what viewers can watch on their TV. The group will cooperate in exchanging best practices and support each another to push through a fast, comprehensive rollout of hybrid TV, on the understanding that only high quality, creative content will enable hybrid technology to fulfil its potential and only a flexible, cross-border approach will create the necessary impetus.
In signing up to the Hybrid TV project, these EBU Members make a commitment both to open standards, like HbbTV, MHP and MHEG5, and to delivering a compelling new experience to their audiences.
Un vaste sujet que la télévision connectée. Une étude du cabinet NPA Conseil montre que 1/4 des télévisions des foyers français seront « connectées » en 2012 (via Dagobert). Une seconde étude cette fois de GfK annonce qu’en 2011, près d’un Français sur deux consommera les nouveaux services de la TV et près d’un quart des 9 millions de téléviseurs qui seront vendus auront la possibilité d’être directement connectés et représenteront 70 % des ventes en 2013-2014. Donc, on ne se sait pas encore ce qu’est la TV connectée mais on sait déjà que d’ici quelques mois, plus de 6 millions de foyers auront une télévision connectée.
