Sony’s 4K encoder partner eyeIO delivers UltraHD on today's broadband (less than 10mbps)

Sony’s 4K encoder partner eyeIO delivers UltraHD on today's broadband (less than 10mbps) | Video in a connected world | Scoop.it

Yesterday, Sony continued its push to jump-start the 4K ecosystem with the announcement of a 4K TV media player. The $699 device will be available from retailers on July 15th and will come bundled with 10 movies and video shorts at 4K resolution. The encoder technology for the content comes from eyeIO, the power behind the Netflix streaming service. I stopped by eyeIO offices to get a demonstration of some of the 4K content. What I found convinced me more than ever that online delivery will lead the ultraHD charge. However, regardless of 4Ks fortunes advanced video codecs like eyeIO's are a game-changer.

 

Doubly amazing is the bitrate these movies were being streamed at: less than 10mbps! Mr. Vargas also claimed the next release of the codec will reduce that even further. At bitrates as low as this many consumers in the US could stream a 4K movie today on their existing broadband connections.

Because every day or so, an exclusive OTT distribution deal is signed with one of the biggest studio.

Five Predictions for How Data Will Change TV This Season

Big Data has infiltrated almost every facet of marketing. The idea that marketers can target specific consumers with tailored messages isn't new, but in traditional media like TV, it's taking longer to ignite.
Addressable TV isn't a new idea, but some are taking longer than others to take it up. Many still rely on one-size-fits all TV campaigns, but for others, it has been a high priority over the past decade to increase the sophistication of these programs. In fact, some industry verticals are well-practiced in the art of targeting consumers through the set-top box. Automotive and insurance brands, who tend to rely heavily on traditional media, have often been early adopters for addressable TV. Today, they are now focused on expanding their targeted TV campaigns across digital channels. (...)

Valery's insight:

I always have mixed feelings on such subject. Data is fine, and properly used it can drastically decrease the advertising harassment and help you to power a proper inbound marketing.

 

That is theory. Truth is, most of the data will be exchanged, sold to wrong third parties and it might end up with even more harassment…
