Disney Research develops capacitive touch that detects multiple users through their fingertips

Disney Research develops capacitive touch that detects multiple users through their fingertips | C2M : veille Digital Media | Scoop.it

Creating a truly multi-user, multi-touch display is a tricky prospect. How do you know who's who short of turning the screen into one giant fingerprint reader? Chris Harrison, Ivan Poupyrev and Munehiko Sato at Disney Research have suggested in a paper that fingerprinting on a capacitive touchscreen isn't far off -- it's just what we need to fingerprint that matters.

[TOP NEWS] Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP: From Content Creation to Consumption

This is the tutorial presentation during this years' ACM Multimedia 2012 presented by Christian Timmerer from Klagenfurt University (Austria) and Carsten Griwodz from Simula Research (Norway).

 

Abstract: In this tutorial we present dynamic adaptive streaming over HTTP ranging from content creation to consumption. It particular, it provides an overview of the recently ratified MPEG-DASH standard, how to create content to be delivered using DASH, its consumption, and the evaluation thereof with respect to competing industry solutions. The tutorial can be roughly clustered into three parts. In part I we will provide an introduction to DASH, part II covers content creation, delivery, and consumption, and, finally, part III deals with the evaluation of existing (open source) MPEG-DASH implementations compared to state-of-art deployed industry solutions.

Second screen app Boxfish is now available for iPhone

Second screen app Boxfish is now available for iPhone | C2M : veille Digital Media | Scoop.it

Today, second screen TV app Boxfish is launching its iPhone app. In August, Boxfish debuted its iPad app, which is essentially a means for helping users break out of the dysfunctional excel spreadsheet called TV guide we currently deal with.


The idea around Boxfish is to capture every word spoken on television along with Twitter trends to create an interactive, customizable platform for browsing and controlling what’s on television. The control function is literal: The app connects with your cable box to change the channel to your selected content (provided you’re using one of Boxfish’s partners – whose ranks are growing).

RealNetworks Launches DASH-Compatible Helix Server and HLS SDK for Android 2.2

RealNetworks Launches DASH-Compatible Helix Server and HLS SDK for Android 2.2 | C2M : veille Digital Media | Scoop.it

Helix v15 offers DASH support for both live and on-demand profiles. More interestingly, it will also offer support for both ISO Base Media File Format (ISO BMFF, or fragmented MP4) as well as MPEG-2 Transport Streams (M2TS).

 

The Helix Client SDK for Android can be used in Android applications to create an end-to-end delivery solution that includes the Helix server and a client app. Interestingly, the Helix SDK can be used to deliver HLS content to Android OS 2.2 and higher. Google has added integral support for HLS in Android OS version 3 or higher, but has not addressed the larger addressable market of pre Android OS 3.0 devices.

 

Finally, Helix has digital rights management (DRM) support for a number of device types, including devices based on several key operating systems: Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows. Real's DRM leans heavily on Verimatrix's DRM solutions, using Verimatrix VCAS for HLS devices—via the ViewRight plug-in—as well as the ViewRight Client on PCs and set-top box devices. In addition, Real says that PlayReady support should be available in an upcoming dot release.

Farncombe hails cardless CA for some broadcast networks

Farncombe hails cardless CA for some broadcast networks | C2M : veille Digital Media | Scoop.it

A Farncombe White Paper looking at broadcast content security has concluded that is is now appropriate to use of cardless CA solutions in a one-way network in certain scenarios, namely:

- Where the Pay TV operator involved has a low reach and therefore a low potential customer base for the pirate);

- Where the operator has a low volume of premium content that is not available elsewhere;

- Where the operator is in a market with high broadband penetration and speeds;

- Where it is being used for free-to-air services that are applying geographical restrictions.

 

According to the consulting firm, which has a long heritage in content security, these are the circumstances where the incentives for pirates to attack the network are low, as long as barriers to hacking are kept sufficiently high. The lack of reach or premium content obviously reduces the value of the service for hacking. The reason high broadband speeds are relevant is because this makes illegal content redistribution easier and Farncombe explains in the paper that content redistribution will become the main piracy threat over the next five years

Apple TV and AirPlay Fuel Rise of Dual-Screen Apps

Apple TV and AirPlay Fuel Rise of Dual-Screen Apps | C2M : veille Digital Media | Scoop.it

Dual-screen apps are a new phenomena, enabled by the advent of wireless technologies that allow for effortless pairing of a PC, tablet or smartphone with a TV. They are changing how people are interacting and “consuming” content within apps. For developers this creates many new opportunities to provide better experiences for their users, but it requires thinking about dual-screen setups from the start as well as new tools.

 

The opportunity for dual-screen apps is huge. And it’s more than just watching a video or playing a game: Dual-screen apps have the potential to transform the office meeting room, the classroom, the retail store, the hospital, and really any other context where people are interacting around content and information and where that information would benefit from rendering and display on a large screen such as a TV monitor.

 

To better understand this concept, it’s necessary to step back and reconsider the nature of how we write software and the user experience model for software.

The FCC has released new rules that will allow cable operators to encrypt all their basic channels. However, the new rule comes with a major exception: Any encrypted basic channels must be also made available unencrypted via IP.

 

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski circulated the new rules in August, allowing cable operators to encrypt basic tiers. However, in July, Boxee and others complained about the inability of their Internet devices to access programming on basic tiers once the content is encrypted.

Netflix’s Reed Hastings says Amazon Prime loses $1B annually

Netflix’s Reed Hastings says Amazon Prime loses $1B annually | C2M : veille Digital Media | Scoop.it

Amazon could be losing up to $1 billion per year on its streaming video service Amazon Prime, according to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, who commented during an interview with Dow Jones editors in New York yesterday.


Hastings’ assumption is based on content licensing deals that Amazon earlier this year after a bidding war with Netflix. Amazon is likely splitting those licensing costs between its domestic Prime service and its international streaming service LoveFlim, he said. And based on financial information from Netflix’s last quarterly earnings report, those number could be sound.
