The same elastic computing and cloud storage meant we could also remove all limits in content production for iPlayer. We have doubled the total number of hours of video available on iPlayer and have increased the number of HD hours by almost 700%
Valery's insight:

I like it when companies disclose what happens in the back. Usually that means you are so good and ahead that you don't really care what your competitor could learn as you'll be somewhere else when they implement it.

Great article.

Valery's insight:

Je préconise un peu de retenue avant de tirer des conclusions définitives. Le temps passé devant la télé a déjà chuté en 2009 avant de remonter.

Pour la VOD c'est plus problématique.

 

La télé classique reste le premier marché publicitaire et loin devant les autres (et avec l'écroulement de la presse) ce sera encore plus vrai les années qui viennent.

Multiscreen could be monetized as well as linear within two years, depending on market | VideoNet | Video in a connected world | Scoop.it
Some content owners can already monetize multiscreen views as successfully as a linear viewing session on the main TV and more will do the same. Recent Videonet polls and debates have revealed some of the attitudes about multiscreen monetisation.

What are the challenges and cost implications? And is transcoding / encoding really as scarily technical as it sounds? Find out here in conversation with Arqiva and Brightcove.
Valery's insight:

Question that comes back VERY often and quite complete answer (for a first glance at least).

 

Working on this subject, I can add

- If your live content is already delivered for many devices, you can glue the chunk to make the content avalaible for start over and replay. It can be more or less instanteneous (say 5 minutes).

- you can also choose to transcode after it is finished. Then it will take quite a lot of time depending on how many servers you have and how many devices (resolution screens) you cover. With GPU (Graphical transcoding instead of CPU) you can have one hour transcoded in 45 minutes (or even 10 minutes if you work SD only).
