The Rio Olympics will have some of the smartest sports cameras ever

The Rio Olympics will have some of the smartest sports cameras ever | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

A Getty Images decidiu equipar todos os fotógrafos oficiais dos Jogos Olímpicos 2016, no Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, com câmaras 360º. De acordo com o Mashable, a tecnologia não é exatamente uma novidade para a empresa, que já teria testado o mesmo formato nos Jogos Olímpicos em Londres de 2012 e até tem uma coleção de imagens disponíveis para o Oculus Rift. No entanto, Dawn Airey, CEO da Getty Images, refere que “o formato e o modelo de negócio ainda estão a dar os primeiros passos”. A verdade é que cada vez mais a realidade virtual está a mudar o storytelling em 2016. Razões suficientes para a empresa decidir lançar um negócio dedicado a produção de imagens e filmes em 360 graus já este ano.

Governo substitui publicidade nos canais da RTP na TDT por divulgação cultural

Governo substitui publicidade nos canais da RTP na TDT por divulgação cultural | Working Stuff | Scoop.it
A resolução hoje publicada em Diário da República a Publicidade na RTP3 e RTP Memória na TDT é substituída por cultura.

A 23 de Junho, o Conselho de Ministros aprovou o alargamento da oferta de televisão digital terrestre (TDT), prevendo dois canais da RTP sem publicidade e outros dois reservados para os privados, sendo que para estes últimos será lançado concurso.

De acordo com a resolução do Conselho de Ministros, é determinada "a reserva de capacidade no Multiplexer A [bolsa de canais] necessária a dois serviços de programas televisivos em definição SDTV ['standard'], de modo a permitir que a RTP desencadeie de imediato as diligências necessárias para que os serviços de programas do serviço público de âmbito nacional RTP3 e RTP Memória sejam disponibilizados" na TDT.

Além disso, o Governo decidiu "substituir os tempos reservados à publicidade por espaços de promoção e divulgação cultural, na medida em que o alargamento desta oferta não deve pôr em causa a sustentabilidade da oferta assegurada pelos operadores privados de televisão, na emissão da RTP3 e RTP Memória na rede de televisão digital terrestre".

A RTP é presidida por Gonçalo Reis.

A resolução determina ainda reserva de capacidade para mais dois canais em definição 'standard', "de modo a possibilitar a abertura de concurso público para a atribuição de licença" a duas televisões privadas.

"Para o actual estado da televisão digital terrestre [TDT] em termos de oferta de conteúdos, entre os vários percalços verificados no processo de implantação" daquela plataforma, "releva sobretudo, no intuito do alargamento da oferta de serviços de canais, o fracasso do chamado 5.º canal e o fracasso do canal HDTV [de alta definição] partilhado que deveria funcionar até ao fecho da radiodifusão televisiva analógica", para o qual se reservou espaço "que nunca foi utilizado", lê-se no documento.

Por essa razão, e tendo em conta que "nos últimos anos nada foi feito" para contrariar a atual situação, a opção do Governo foi atribuir mais quatro novos canais na TDT, repartidos entre o público e o privado, "de modo a assegurar não só uma maior quantidade de conteúdos, mas também uma maior diversidade de programação", salientando que depois de ouvida a RTP "são incluídos os serviços de programas RTP3 e RTP Memória, sem publicidade televisiva".

Relativamente às reservas de capacidade da bolsa de canais, o Governo adianta que, "como é tecnicamente impossível acomodar no Multiplexer A todos os canais beneficiários da obrigação de transporte em HDTV", já que tal implicaria a atribuição de mais espectro, "o que não se afigura de momento viável", o Conselho de Ministros decidiu "reconhecer a inutilidade e desnecessidade da utilização para o fim a que se propunha da reserva de capacidade relacionada" com a TDT, bem como a "inutilidade e a desnecessidade" de ter espaço para a difusão, em modo não simultâneo, de emissões de alta definição.

Actualmente, a TDT conta com a RTP1, RTP2, SIC, TVI e canal Parlamento.

Digital News Report 2016 | Case study: BRAZIL

Digital News Report 2016 | Case study: BRAZIL | Working Stuff | Scoop.it
Empty deSouth America’s biggest media market has long been dominated by popular free-to-air TV stations which attract more than 50% of advertising spend. But this supremacy is being challenged in urban areas of the country, where online media has consolidated its position as the main source of news.
-----------------------------------

Overview of key developments 
by Rodrigo Carro 
Reuters Institute Journalist Fellow and financial journalist

Monthly audiences for some of the top news brands online – such as G1 and UOL – were over 30 million unique visitors in 2015. However, in terms of popularity news sites in Brazil are no match for Facebook. Since 2011, when the company opened an office in the country, the number of Brazilians using Facebook has increased nearly six-fold to more than 83 million. 2 Second only to Facebook among the top social media brands used for news, is WhatsApp, which is estimated to have 100m users, meaning that one in every two Brazilians has the app.

The fascination exerted by social media is often explained in terms of Brazil’s hyper-social culture, where people are considered to be more open to making friends. But Facebook and other networks are being used for more than just keeping in touch. In urban Brazil, social media are used as a source of news by approximately 72% of respondents in our survey. In December 2015, a dozen Brazilian news brands – some of them owned by mainstream media heavyweights – started to publish directly to Facebook using the Instant Articles format.

The search for new sources of revenue is critical for the print media, which was hit hard by last year’s contraction of the Brazilian economy, the worst downturn in 25 years. More than 1,400 media professionals lost their jobs in 2015. Examples of the current downsizing include the magazine giant Abril, which ceased publishing three titles and sold seven other news brands in 2015, and the financial newspaper Brasil Econômico, owned by Portuguese group Ongoing, which closed last year.

Despite the key role that the press has played in uncovering recent political scandals, nine out of the ten best-selling newspapers in the country lost readers in 2015. 3 By contrast, online news usage rose 50% in the first half of 2015 when compared to the same period of the previous year. 4 The increase in digital circulation has happened despite the adoption of paywalls by a number of Brazilian papers. By the end of 2014, ten major dailies had implemented paywalls, according to the National Association of Newspapers (ANJ).

Around one in five (22%) urban Brazilians say they paid for some kind of online news content during the past year. That’s the third highest rate among the 26 countries analysed, with demand highest for premium content such as financial news and on-demand video. Publishers have also been experimenting with branded and sponsored content in print versions of the major Brazilian newspapers but also on online portals. Folha de S. Paulo, the daily with the highest circulation in the country, launched a business unit specialising in producing this kind of content in different formats, including digital and video, following in the footsteps of other major media groups. 

 In Brazil, ad-blockers are not yet a major source of concern for online advertisers, as penetration remains relatively low at 21%.

Changes in media usage 2013–2016 
TV news remains the most important source of news overall in Brazil, though online is ahead with our urban sample. Social media has grown rapidly with over 70% using it as a source of news each week.

Paying for news 
Although almost a quarter of our urban sample says they pay for online news, a significant proportion is for one-off purchases. The average yearly payment is one of the lowest in our survey.

Trust 
In a year in which corruption scandals and weak economic figures filled the headlines, trust in news remained high. Polarisation between supporters and opponents of the current government helps to explain why a little more than one-third of the urban population considers journalists to be free from undue political influence.

Facebook mexe no algoritmo (outra vez): passa a dar prioridade a posts de 'amigos' em detrimento dos media 

Facebook mexe no algoritmo (outra vez): passa a dar prioridade a posts de 'amigos' em detrimento dos media  | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

O Facebook vai passar a dar maior destaque aos 'posts' de amigos e família na ordem como estes aparecem na página do utilizador, em detrimento de publicações realizadas por órgãos de comunicação social ou outros media.
A rede social fundada por Mark Zuckerberg afirmou esta quarta-feira, em comunicado publicado na página oficial, que a sua preocupação principal é que os utilizadores "vejam primeiro o que lhes interessa e que não percam notícias importantes dos seus amigos".

O que está em causa, segundo o mesmo texto, não é o conteúdo das publicações propriamente dito, mas sim a sua proveniência. Por exemplo, o Facebook tratará da mesma forma uma publicação de uma foto ou a de um link noticioso, desde que esta tenha origem no mesmo "amigo" do utilizador.

A ideia subjacente é a de que a família e os amigos de uma pessoa partilham na rede coisas que lhe interessam mais do que as páginas que esse mesmo utilizador segue.

Esta não é a primeira vez que o Facebook mexe no algoritmo que define como as publicações são apresentadas. É frequente haver "afinações", decorrentes da forma como os técnicos por trás da plataforma avaliam a utilização dos membros desta rede social.

No entanto, no últimos tempos, tem-se assistido a uma tendência de privilegiar os conteúdos criados por "profissionais", como acontece nos chamados "instant articles" - notícias de órgãos de comunicação social distribuídos de acordo com os interesses expressos pelos utilizadores. A alteração agora anunciada vai no sentido inverso.

Digital News Report 2016 | Case study: PORTUGAL

Digital News Report 2016 | Case study: PORTUGAL | Working Stuff | Scoop.it
The news media environment in Portugal is characterised by a high reliance on television news sources, a weakening print media sector and a radio sector that struggles to remain relevant. We also see a focus on television-centred business strategies and a decreasing number of journalists in newsrooms.
----------------------------

Overview of key developments 
by Gustavo Cardoso and Ana Pinto Martinho 
ISCTE University Institute of Lisbon

In television, private broadcasters SIC and TVI are the dominant brands, either through their TV channels or news channels (‘SIC Notícias’, the first 24/7 news channel launched in Portugal, and ‘TVI 24’). The Portuguese public broadcaster, RTP, is also an important player offering two channels and a dedicated news one (‘RTP 3’, former ‘RTP Informação’) – following a successful rebranding with improved audience figures.

In terms of print news, Jornal de Notícias and Correio da Manhã confirm their status as key reference brands. The latter, a popular tabloid paper, has entered the television business with a successful new cable TV news offer Correio da Manhã TV. Other traditional print media outlets such as Económico,that abandoned its print edition in early 2016, and A Bola (a sports newspaper) have also invested in TV channels, which are seen as a more lucrative investment than either print or online.

The news market in Portugal has been unable – despite a recovery in advertising revenues – to counter the decrease in other revenues obtained through premium telephone numbers in television contests, loss of paid subscriptions, and falling revenues in renewal of cable TV distribution licences. Also of importance for the financial health of the Portuguese media sector is its exposure to debt and low stock market values.

As for radio broadcasters, TSF, Rádio Renascença (private) and Antena 1 (public broadcaster) play a significant role in the news landscape. While other radio stations in Portugal also provide news, these three brands combine music and news – an approach that seems to work well in the Portuguese market both in terms of advertising revenues and audiences.

Five media groups dominate the news in Portugal. Besides the public TV and radio broadcaster RTP, groups such as COFINA (Correio da Manhã – TV and newspaper, Negócios newspaper), Global Media (Jornal de Notícias, DN – newspapers and TSF – radio), IMPRESA (Expresso – newspaper and SIC – TV channels), and PRISA (TVI – several TV channels) provide the majority of news production in Portugal, both offline and online.

Portugal has seen a reduction in numbers of 1,218 journalists between 2007 and early 2015. The media industry now employs just 5,621 journalists – an all time low. Unemployment and the widespread use of trainees in newsrooms are two emerging trends for 2016.

The past year has seen a significant rise in smartphone use for news (+15), as well as a strong increase in social media for news.

This year’s data show a media environment characterised by the offline dominance of private television channels (SIC and TVI) and online by television brands (SIC), telecom brands (SAPO), an internet-only brand (Noticias ao minuto) and in the next three places newspapers (, Público, and Correio da Manhã.

The online media brands show the distinctive nature of the Portuguese market. Two of the top five spots go to SAPO, owned by major Portuguese telecom carrier (PT). SAPO hosts some media outlets such as online SIC Notícias (the cable news TV channel) and the online versions of several newspapers and magazines, and it also publishes original content of its own through the Sapo.pt portal. In fourth place we find another news aggregator, ‘noticiasaominuto.com’ that offers edited contents from other news outlets.

Paying for news 
 Payment for online news in Portugal remains low (9%), with slow growth in digital and bundled subscriptions.

Trust 
 These data confirm other studies showing high levels of trust in the news and journalists in Portugal. 1 This may relate to a strong tradition of press freedom, which is guaranteed under the constitution following the 1974 revolution. This round of data is particularly relevant as 2015 was marked by several important political changes in the Portuguese Parliament and Republic Presidency.
