IBC 2012: Clash of Four Second-Screen Titans

IBC 2012: Clash of Four Second-Screen Titans | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it
The recent International Broadcasting Convention highlighted multi-screen services: service delivery platforms and video gateways.

 

Anyone experienced in going to major trade shows knows that there’s no way you can cover all the ground or uncover every gem hidden along the path, especially at a tradeshow as big as the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam. My own search criteria were at the intersection of TV software – which has always been my focus – and multi-screen delivery, the big news at IBC this year.

The future of adaptive bit rate streaming [IBC VIDEO]

The future of adaptive bit rate streaming [IBC VIDEO] | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

In this IBC interview, Ramin Farassat, VP of Product Marketing and Business Development at RGB Networks, provides a crisp analysis of where adaptive bit rate streaming could be heading next. It considers the use of just-in-time packaging for multi-screen nPVR and VOD, with its potential to save server storage space, and the inclusion of audio in adaptive streaming so consumers with more bandwidth can jump from stereo to 5.1 surround sound. He also outlines why some operators are conducting friendly trials with ABR set-top boxes, hoping to unify all video infrastructure around IP ABR video.

Neotion moves to secure second screen

Neotion moves to secure second screen | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Companion screen applications have the potential to open up a pay TV service to revenue security threats including intrusion by rivals to poach subscribers. This is leading to new solutions that aim to give operators full control of second screens such as tablets while they are being used in companion screen mode, with one of the first examples being Blue Bridge launched by French pay TV security technology vendor Neotion at IBC.

 

The ability to enable secure two way communications between the TV and smart phones or tablets in the home is the basis of Blue Bridge, and Neotion has kicked off with a version for TVs equipped with a CI Plus slot. This first version transmits data over Bluetooth but Wi-Fi support will be added, as well as a version for set top boxes on a USB stick. However Neotion is pitching Blue Bridge particularly at legacy TVs with CI Plus slots, which can then access the Internet via the mobile device without the need for an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi router at all.

 

The company has identified three application categories for Blue Bridge :

- the first exploits information sent from the TV to the mobile device, which could be used to play hybrid TV content on a tablet, or to access a VOD catalogue

- the second use case involves two way information transfer between TV and mobile device, which could be applied for advertising or commerce

- the third use case is where the TV interacts with the Internet via the tablet or smartphone

DVB extends its reach to companion screens

DVB extends its reach to companion screens | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

The DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) group is seeking an expanded role to unify global standards for multiscreen services, while also ending the historical regional fragmentation in digital terrestrial transmission.

 

Emerging multiscreen services are being held back by fragmented standards, particularly over interaction between companion screens and linear broadcast services. At an IBC press conference the DVB said it wanted to act as a unifying force both in digital terrestrial transmission and companion screen interaction.

 

So far companion screen applications have grown up around many different proprietary technologies and are ripe for standardization, according to Nick Wells, vice chair of the DVB Technical Committee. “I expect to see broadcast and IP networks working together and here the DVB has a huge amount to offer,” said Wells.

Jacques Le Mancq (CEO) m'a confirmé aujourd'hui qu'il n'y a aucune technologie P2P utilisée dans la version actuelle, c'est bien du multicasting. Je pense que l'avantage principal de cette solution par rapport à du caching traditionnel de flux live est qu'elle nécessite beaucoup moins d'investissement en hardware/management (les X niveaux de caches à setuper et à gérer/scaler) puisque mettant à contribution les gateways. Inversement c'est aussi un désavantage puisqu'il faut upgrader les gateways, ce qui peut être long et laborieux, surtout si plusieurs générations de en sont déployées. Mais le client nanoCDN étant royaltee-free, le jeu de transformer la GW en relai CDN en vaut certainement la chandelle d'un point de vue économique...

Bon et bien mon intuition était fausse :)

Merci pour cette recherche approfondie très intéressante. Donc on retombe sur ce que tu disais au départ uniquement "live", VOD trop compliquée.
Nicolas Weil's comment, September 25, 2012 11:55 PM
Infos complémentaires sur le transparent caching (http://goo.gl/fvRzr) dans les commentaires : le prix des équipements est élevé (il est souvent plus économique d'acheter plus de peering vers L3), et surtout un argument de choc dans le dernier commentaire... "This (transparent caching) doesn't address the last mile which is the real bottleneck for cable, DSL, and wireless (all flavors including satellite) customers."

French MPEG DASH TV Requirements Have IBC Buzzing

French MPEG DASH TV Requirements Have IBC Buzzing | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

The French TNT 2.0 connected television specifications now include MPEG DASH support, but is it a mandate or an update?

 

One of the more interesting bits of news coming out of last week's IBC tradeshow in Amsterdam was that the French government has mandated the use of MPEG DASH in all connected televisions.

 

The full story is a little more complicated, due to the number of connected TV initiatives floating around Europe. France's connected television scheme, backed by industry and government groups, is called TNT. It currently stands at version 2.0, which was launched mid-2011. The recent move to add DASH support to TNT 2.0 is the source of the buzz.

 

TNT is a French-only subset of what is commonly called Hybrid Broadcast Broadband television, or HbbTV, a pan-European standard for interactive televisions that now stands at version 1.5.

IBC 2012: Moving into a post-revolutionary period

IBC 2012: Moving into a post-revolutionary period | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

There was no ‘big new thing’ at IBC 2012 and we should not be surprised, given the size of the task that Pay TV operators and broadcasters have faced over the last few years in understanding the threats and opportunities presented by OTT, multi-screen TV and connected TV, then responding to them. The industry is taking a collective pause for breath. Everyone is getting on with the job of deploying the next-generation TV platforms and services that have already been ‘invented’.

 

Second screen, in the sense of interactive programme enhancements on tablets and phones, is an emerging theme, more in conversation than on the show floor, and people are starting to talk about ultra high-definition TV (UHDTV) seriously, but usually with their gaze set firmly towards the horizon. Home management solutions like energy monitoring are starting to appear at what remains a 99% television show for the simple reason that some Pay TV operators are starting to wonder where the future ARPU growth is coming from when video revenues top out.

IBC displays the screens of tomorrow

IBC displays the screens of tomorrow | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Delegates to this year’s IBC expo in Amsterdam have been able to sample a variety of future displays and file formats, among them an improved Super Hi-Vision.


The NHK-backed Super Hi-Vision is a project familiar to RAI attendees and one the Japanese broadcaster and its industry partners have been been working on since the beginning of the Millennium.


The year-to-year advances have been plain to see. The Sharp prototype 85″ 8K LCD displays clearly performed much better than the ones shown only last year.


A further improvement on show this year was the doubling of Ultra High Definition (UHD) or Super Hi-Vision (SHV)’s frame rate. The side-by-side demo in the show’s Future Zone was so obvious, from completely blurred fast-moving pans on one screen to a very watchable version shot with the 120 frames per second version from NHK’s 8K camera.


UHDTV was ratified by the ITU earlier this year in both the original 60 fps and the 120 fps variety. The demo at this year’s Future Zone, next to hall 8, makes clear that 120 frames per second is an acceptable starting point.

Surtout que les premiers retours que j'ai lu sur l'UHD parlent d'un "sentiment de 3D" très impressionnant ! D'ailleurs un article avait été présenté ici même ( BBC favours Super Hi-Vision over 3D )
