Showcase reveals widespread desire for IP

Inside

By George Jarrett The hundreds of people who have found the IBC IP Showcase, and have sat attentively through the many presentations, have seen massive vindication to the political will behind the gathering of 52 vendors. “Political will, passion or incentive, this is a really big step for the industry,” said AIMS chairman Mike Cronk. “The sessions have been overflowing, and the people coming have been senior management and engineers interested in IP and evaluating it. There is a widespread desire for moving to IP.” The big draw is the interoperability based around SMPTE ST 2110. “Whether it be flexibility, scalability or resilience – all the things IP brings – when

For the EBU, Dr Hans Hoffmann, head of media production technology. Terry Holton, vice chairman of the Media Networking Alliance, also represented the AES. AMWA was represented by executive director Brad Gilmer. Mike Cronk, chairman of AIMS is also VP of core technologies at Grass Valley. Sixth in line is Michael Crimp, chief executive of IBC. Representing SMPTE were current president Matthew Goldman, who works with Ericsson as senior VP Technology, CTO Group, and SMPTE executive director Barbara Lange.

people see that in action that’s when the pendulum swings, and that pendulum is really moving now,” said Cronk. “With 2110 there is going to come a time when using it is as old hat as SDI, so that piece of IP will change over time. The JT-NM roadmap gives us a long-term

vision for getting to cloud fit and dematerialisation, and we have to do that with a standardised and open spec-based approach,” he added. “ST 2110 in terms of IP transport is foundational but there is a lot of work to do.” The message is that the technology shaping

interoperability will evolve, so gathering the clans for future showcases remains vital. Cronk, like many here, wants to see a standardised way within 2110 of using compressed video over RTP. “Some way of doing compression is totally vital,” he said.

AI will change sports production “quicker than we think” OUTLINED

By David Wood Major sports producers are looking hard at introducing AI technology into sports production. That was one strong trend that emerged from a panel of sports producers talking at an IBC Conference session looking at advances in sport technology [17 September]. Dan Miodownik, chief content officer, Host Broadcast Services, which is host broadcaster for the FIFA World Cup 2018, said: “It’s certainly coming, and quicker than we think. In automated production, where speed to air is more important than the finesse of the edit, it certainly speeds up production. “But I do have a question over using AI in more complex

narratives. At the World Cup you can go in at half-time and have a talk to the director about how it’s going. But you can’t talk to a machine!” Global director of engineering and technology at IMG Media, David Shield, said: “We are certainly looking at AI for the manual logging process. Sports such as Grand Slam tennis still have a lot of associated automated metadata and AI could use facial recognition and audio recognition to do a pretty good job of logging – a process currently carried out by humans. “Could we look at the role of a VT co-ordinator or EVS operator and automate that whole process? A lot of sports production is quite formulaic,” said Shield.

Automation of shot selection could work for lower league football or cricket, added Shield. “I don’t think major events such as the Olympics or the World Cup are going to be doing that, but for lower leagues you could look at introducing AI into editing.” One of the big trends in live sports is the growth in streaming, said HBS’s Miodownik. “Next year you will see a big jump in live streaming – as distinct from post produced sport.” Miodownik confirmed that next year’s World Cup coverage would be “a single match cut of Ultra HD HDR [from which other formats including 1080P and 1080i will be produced] to get away from parallel production.”

Panellists Ken Kerschbaumer, Dan Miodownik and David Shield

The discussion about 4K at the World Cup has been interesting, said Miodownik. “Originally when we went out and talked to broadcasters about live 4K, they said that isn’t going to happen. But now that’s changed and there is a lot more talk about 4K.” Shields said that deciding on delivery formats for large

sports events was increasingly becoming a logistical minefield. Said Shields: “Going forwards, we are trying to find exactly what the demand is for different formats. If we spend a lot of money doing 4K production, we have to be sure that people are actually going to use it.”

Ikegami has launched an HD system camera that supports HDR because “there is much more interest in HD TV in HDR than in 4K”, said Michael Lätzsch, its division manager of broadcast and professional video division. The new HDK-73 supports HDR with HLG, “which is unique for cameras in this price segment”, he said. It has been made for the lowend broadcast market, using the latest CMOS sensors with “very good sensitivity” of f13 and 61dB SNR, with new digital signal processors, and will be sold as a package

Norway, the first country to switch off FM radio to move 100 per cent to DAB, has reported that the first region to have made the radical change, Nordland County, has said viewing figures have remained the same while advertising has risen. Listening figures are hitting the same level as in 2016, with 64.2 per cent of residents listening to radio in Q2 2017, compared to 64.8 per cent in Q2 2016. Commercial radio also experienced growth; the Department of Advertising and Media Statistics said radio advertising was up 1.4 per cent in Q2 versus Q1. Bernie O’Neill, project director at WorldDAB, said: “This is a very bold move that Norway has taken. Because DAB allows innovations – more stations on air, more niche stations – you are able to offer more targeted advertising propositions.” WorldDAB is running a session today in Room E.102 at 10:00-11:30, which will focus on radio’s digital transformation.

Broadcasters rise to the challenge of machine learning OUTLINED

By Ann-Marie Corvin Hollywood would tell us that the rise of AI will wipe out the human race, but the BBC, Unbabel and Videogorillas are experimenting with machine learning on a far more practical level to better serve audiences. During the Sunday morning session on AI – ‘Driving the Next Wave of Innovation’, Dave Bevan, a senior broadcast systems developer from BBC News Labs, said that the broadcaster wanted to use machine learning to help its journalists wrestling with the “tsunami of content” they face when covering major events.

Bevan said: “Think about the General Election in June [in the UK], where a whole range of outside sources come in. How can we use rich metadata and apply machine learning techniques to the thousands of journalists in our London newsrooms trying to find content in our system?” According to Bevan, initial experiments with ML have focused on speech-to-text, where News Labs has taken 250 hours worth of subtitles from broadcast output and used it as a test model to feed into the machine learning process. Elsewhere,

the broadcaster is using ML applications to clear music rights for broadcast, while Bevan revealed that one of the BBC’s online channels is using ML to produce programming schedules. “That’s just for one evening, but we are starting to be approached by very traditional people in the BBC who are wondering what this technology can do for them,” he added. Fellow panellist Marcelo Lebre, VP of engineering at Portuguese translation software company Unbabel, is also working on practical AI applications, and unveiled an

theibcdaily Keeping the hype for VR/AR/MR “hot” OUTLINED

By Chris Forrester There’s a huge amount of investment going into VR, AR and MR in terms of content creativity and hardware. But panellists at IBC’s ‘Leaving the Hype Behind’ session agreed that there was still some way to go. Ed Tang, founder and CTO at Avegant, the business behind the Glyph headset and technology, said that as exciting as the industry is today, in reality it is at the same stage of development as the very early Motorola ‘brick’ mobile

phones. “But we are moving very rapidly forward.” That progress was demonstrated in a powerful presentation by Leen Segers, who told delegates that some €490 million investment cash had been raised in the past year, and that there were 487 companies in Europe working in the VR/AR/MR space. “And it isn’t just start-ups. Players such as Barco and Zeiss are extremely active, as are studios, media, education, distribution, gaming, social media, sport and

Bridging hybrid SDI and IP Rohde & Schwarz By Carolyn Giardina With the launch of a new generation of Rohde & Schwarz’s Venice media server – exhibited for the first time worldwide at IBC – the company is demonstrating its approach to live ingest, media processing and channel playout that bridges hybrid SDI and IP broadcast operations. The software-based media processing and distribution platform could be used as a channel playout system in 24/7 operation applications within medium and largescale broadcasters. It’s focused on interoperability and open standards (FIMS). “An

open communication standard such as FIMS is an absolute requirement in today’s multi-vendor broadcast environment [to enable] adoption and integration with the broadest range of media companies and industry suppliers,” said Michael Hackl, product manager for file-based media solutions. “R&S Venice empowers broadcasters to make the migration to IP whenever and however they wish. It bridges the technology gap between today’s baseband SDI video and future IP workflows, delivering any I/O from SD to Ultra HD. Thanks to its advanced architecture and codec

She demonstrated the number of keystrokes needed to get to content on some apps, and also said that for some consumers, getting the hardware to link with content was a challenge. “Things are getting better. And 360º is totally underestimated, and super-interesting.” Sky VR’s technical director Richard performance, it supports HDR workflows today.” When combined with R&S SpycerBox Cell storage systems supported by IBM Spectrum Scale file system, the virtual storage access technology provides multiple layers of data redundancy from low-cost to enterprisescale configurations. Also at IBC, Rohde & Schwarz updated its AVHE100 encoding and multiplexing system with ABR encoding as well as packetising for established formats for OTT live streaming. The R&S AVHE100 supports a mixture of different video codecs, including MPEG-2, MPEG4/H.264 and HEVC, and resolutions, such as SD, HD and Ultra HD, plus HDR. 7.E25

Super16/4, also making a debut at IBC2017, has 16 USB interface drives. These are allocated to four groups. At the front end of the device, an internal 8x4 selection router permits all of the eight inputs to be routed to any of the four groups. Therefore, for each group, up to four simultaneous video recordings can be made. The third new product is the Buzz-USB XFR, a power dual-channel video recorder with unlimited record configurations, including timecode overlay, watermarking and logo insertion. It also includes real-time picture monitoring, clip replay and clip editing. 8.B38

Mills showcased its Rebel Queen production, which took Sky’s creatives into Egypt for a comprehensive look at Queen Nefertiti, and which won a ‘Commendation’ at this year’s Venice Biennale. “It’s part game, part discovery, but with a strong sense of involvement and empowerment for the user.”

LittlStar CEO Tony Mugavero drew attention to his company’s impressive list of clients, major Hollywood studios and international broadcasters, each of them investing in VR/AR and MR. LittlStar now has its own distribution arm where, he stressed, user analytics are a key component.

IRT delivers HbbTV companion integration IRT By George Jarrett The abilities of HbbTV in ad insertion – spot replacement in the form of commercials via the internet but in a linear TV context – is a big part of the DVB and IRT exhibits, but HbbTV in companion screen integration is yet another great app. “We can launch content from a companion screen onto the TV and vice versa,” said Michael Probst, IRT platforms for broadcast services. “That was a big new thing, but we missed a couple of small things for a better transition from broadcast to IP. So we launched HbbTV 2.0.1. “We are doing a number of HbbTV prototype showcases and we are now able to synchronise media across the home network as well.” For instance, there is a soundtrack of a movie playing

on TV, and it also plays on a smartphone. “One person may want to listen to the original soundtrack in English and another person prefers the German soundtrack,” said Probst. “In our prototype you have a broadcast loop. The broadcaster has an HbbTV app that allows us to push content. “You can push an (Android) app onto the tablet, which is in contact with the TV app and can now tell the tablet to play the soundtrack that is on TV in the preferred language.” 10.F51

More than just security Verimatrix By Ian McMurray When your solutions monitor can analyse a billion streams each month, the term ‘Big Data’ hardly begins to cover what’s involved. That’s what’s at the heart of Verimatrix’s business – and, as CEO Tom Munro pointed out, it’s not just about security and revenue enhancement. “What we’re looking for are anomalies – things that aren’t quite right – and we use AI to some degree to do that,”

he explained. “But looking for those anomalies identifies other issues – to do with the way a system is designed, for example – and taking action based on that information results in better systems.” He points out that the data in those streams can also be used by, for example, recommendation engines and to improve quality of service. “The most successful companies know the value of data, and embrace that value,” Munro said.

IBC at the movies Rufus Leonard’s Iain Millar and Tom Marshall, Captive North, talk atomised news

hopes to help them engage with young audiences by breaking news into smaller self-contained “atoms”. “Atomised news provides the consumer with summaries and deeper information – if they wish – by breaking down news stories into components and describing them with structured data so that we can then reassemble them back together in interesting ways,” she said.

“The challenge is to provide the news in a quick, snappy format while also providing the opportunity to deepen their understanding when needed.” According to Millar, who spent yesterday trawling the floors for innovative technologies, the project is part of BBC R&D’s work on object-based broadcasting and new ways of telling stories on the internet.

War for the Planet of the Apes is the IBC Big Screen movie on Monday evening [Auditorium, 18:30-21:00]. Number three in the rebooted ‘Apes’ trilogy was a box-office blockbuster smash for director Matt Reeves, earning a massive $346 million at its opening, and helped by another blistering performance from Andy Serkis (Caesar) as well as musical score, visual effects, cinematography and

what Variety described as a morally complex and poignant storyline. IBC delegates get a VIP seat at the 21st Century Fox smash hit, which is being screened in Dolby Atmos all-embracing sound and Dolby Vision. Almost every critic has praised the technology, whether from the apes and their motion-captured and CGI performances or the immersive impact of Dolby’s Atmos and Vision. And the studio gossip is that there’s an Apes IV in the works!

SCTE: Managing the network infrastructures of the future OUTLINED

CONFERENCE TODAY By Chris Forrester This comprehensive session [Emerald, 14:00-17:30] could just as easily be entitled; ‘Spending your engineering budget wisely’ because no broadcast technology manager has a bottomless pit of money, “just a bottomless pit into which cash is poured”, said one joker, with more than a hint of hard-won experience. Part of IBC’s ‘Advances in Technology’ session strand,

and produced in association with the SCTE, it looks at how network infrastructure is evolving, and how managing content – in all its guises – can be guided through the network and into the home. Within this wide range of topics, the session will be covering actual and future infrastructure issues. Panellists include David Whitehead, senior director, cable solutions, Harmonic, who has a wealth of experience ranging from the earliest days of proprietary cable modems

Broadcast features in 3GPP release 14 OUTLINED

Darko Ratkaj, senior project manager, EBU If the ultimate goal is mobile networks with significantly improved abilities to distribute broadcast content, the recently adopted 3GPP release 14, with its latest set of mobile specifications, is a milestone in that direction. The update contains substantially enhanced LTE eMBMS features compared to previous releases. Some of the most significant ones include: • An extended cyclic prefix to allow large cell sizes, which improves the economics of the wide-area LTE eMBMS network coverage. • Up to 100 per cent of carrier allocation to eMBMS, enabling both a mixed unicast/broadcast configuration on the same carrier and a dedicated broadcastonly carrier. The latter can be deployed in a stand-alone eMBMS network configuration. • Support for handheld, vehiclemounted, and rooftop antenna reception, which means different categories of receivers can be reached at the same time. • Shared MBMS broadcast that allows eMBMS services

transmitted by one network to be received by subscribers of other mobile network operators. In this way, popular content can be transmitted once (i.e. by a stand-alone eMBMS network) and received by all interested users, instead of being transmitted multiple times as would be the case with each MNO distributing the content separately to their own subscribers. • The possibility of free-to-air reception in addition to the conventional subscription-based reception modes. • A receive-only mode, i.e. reception of selected eMBMS services without the need for a user device to authenticate with the network (i.e. without a SIM card). The services available to receive-only devices can of course also be received on all other devices with a SIM card, provided that they are eMBMS enabled. • Standardised interfaces were introduced at two levels: between content providers and BM-SC on the LTE network (xMB interface), and between

MBMS clients and receiver applications (MBMS-APIs). The xMB interface provides the functionality for content ingest, authentication and notifications, and permits four different ways of carrying the content: streaming, file transfer, applications and transport mode. MBMS-APIs facilitate development of web and user applications that make use of new functionalities while being compatible with existing media players. • The transport-only mode allows the distribution of any IP-based data flow over eMBMS, including content formats external to 3GPP, such as MPEG-2 Transport Stream. For example, this would enable traditional broadcasters to distribute content in its native format (without the need for transcoding) via eMBMS to existing radio and/or TV receivers. The adopted protocol allows new functionalities to be added in the future, such as QoS improvements through FEC, audience data gathering and reception monitoring.

‘Easily expandable’ matrix switch on show Quintech Electronics By Ian McMurray The XTREME 80 port matrix switch is being demonstrated

on the Quintech stand. It exhibits what the company claimed was an innovative asymmetric design, able to offer a 16x64 port configuration in a 2RU chassis.

Included in the high-density matrix are hot swappable and redundant power supplies and control cards. Standard independent input and output variable gains allow

In addition, 3GPP took important steps with release 14 to align the TV service layer with best practices in TV industry. Ideally, broadcasters and other content providers can deliver their content and services on all distribution platforms in the same way, using the same audio and video formats, codec, subtitling and accessibility standards. This would reduce the need for transcoding, facilitate content re-purposing, potentially increase the value of legacy content in broadcasters’ archives and substantially reduce distribution costs and complexity. The work in 3GPP on the TV service layer has found its first manifestation in release 14 and might span multiple releases, which provides an opportunity for co-operation with broadcast standardisation bodies such as DVB. 3GPP release 14 is considered to be a major accomplishment and a result of close co-operation between the broadcasting community led by the EBU and the mobile industry. the user to balance input signals and provide optimum signal performance to the receivers. The XTREME 80 can, according to Quintech, save up to 90 per cent of rack space and inter-module cabling as compared to existing 16x16 technology.

As the EBU’s new director general Noel Curran recently said, technology opens more doors than it closes. 3GPP release 14 is opening the door for a commercially viable delivery of TV services to personal devices such as smartphones and tablets on a large scale. It allows mobile operators to build on their existing network functionalities and the broadcast industry to expand their own transmission infrastructure. It provides the flexibility for content providers to expand their service portfolio and creates a basis for new business arrangements between content providers and network operators. Release 14 also allows the radio spectrum and the network capacity to be used in a better way. The next challenge will be to bring the new features in release 14 to the market, which will only be possible if the interests of, and incentives for, different players in the value chain can be aligned. The EBU and its members are committed to help achieve this goal. The company said that this L-band matrix switch had already been selected by a US government intelligence agency to expand its network capabilities due to its compact size and superior RF performance. 1.F38

The potential of object-based audio for broadcasters OUTLINED

Roger Miles, senior project manager, EBU Object-based audio (OBA) is an incandescent topic in the normally calm world of audio; it is the better mousetrap that will change the way that audio programming is made, manipulated and consumed by everyone. The EBU is promoting OBA for use by broadcasters because it will fundamentally facilitate the “produce once, consume in all environments” model that will allow multiplatform distribution and consumption of the programme, enable personalisation and access services, and keep costs down, all in one go. The public is already experiencing OBA when they go to the cinema; Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and MPEGH are all

commercial systems that use OBA to produce the enveloping sound environments that most of the Hollywood blockbuster movies now come with. But the Hollywood experience of OBA is but one facet of the new mousetrap’s capabilities. Audio becomes an object when it is accompanied by metadata that completely describes its existence, position and function. An audio object can, therefore, be the sound of a bee flying over your head, the crowd noise, commentary to a sporting event in any language, or even the clearly enunciated commentary that would be favoured by the hard-of-hearing or the visually impaired. All this remains fully adjustable on the

consumer’s end to their specific listening environment, needs and liking, regardless of the device. Do you get the picture? The EBU played a fundamental part in defining the Technology must 64-bit audio file format be open if OBA is to reach its full potential and the audio data (metadata) model that has been adopted and The renderer is, in fact, proving refined in the ITU to provide to be somewhat contentious in the essential building blocks discussions as there is a vast of OBA.

Anti-jam sat set for 26° East Es’hailSat By Ian McMurray Discussing with IBC visitors the opportunities afforded by the planned expansion of its satellite fleet, Es’hailSat, the Qatar satellite company, is showcasing Es’hail-1. Currently transmitting premium DTH television content from the 25.5°/26° East neighbourhood for leading channels such as Al Jazeera and beIN Sports. Es’hail-2, the company’s second satellite, is scheduled

for launch soon. In addition to providing transmission and expansion opportunities for established news and sports channels, Es’hailSat says a growing number of new Arabic channels are choosing it to launch in the MENA region. Qatari cultural channel Qatar TV and Al Kaas Sport Channel both recently launched their channels on Es’hail-1. Es’hailSat said it was pushing ahead with plans to expand its satellite fleet. Es’hail-2, a satellite with anti-jamming capabilities,

will be positioned at the 26° East hotspot position for TV broadcasting, enabling the company to provide DTH television across the Middle East and North Africa. Beyond this, discussions are already ongoing with customers and stakeholders to define the requirements for Es’hail-3 and Es’hail-4. Ali Al Kuwari, president and chief executive officer of Es’hailSat, said: “We have had tremendous growth since our commercial launch in 2013 with utilisation rate of Es’hail-1 at higher than the industry

A daily series of masterclasses being held at IBC by the Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG) has as its core subject Carrier ID (CID). As of 3 September this year a Federal Communications Commission Regulatory Deadline was able to enforce a ruling requiring broadcasters to include CID in all video transmissions within the USA. This ensures satellite operators

can quickly identify the source of any problem transmissions and lessen the disruption caused. IRG said it recognised the difficulty of preparing for the regulatory deadline and aims to provide clarification and support to broadcasters during its CID Masterclass. The aims of the masterclass are to outline the importance of adopting Carrier ID for video transmissions and to clarify what exactly the FCC Regulation requires of broadcasters. Other subjects included in the masterclass programme are mitigation technology tools and

Inrix says CallMe for traffic updates OUTLINED

Vortex Communications By David Fox Inrix, the global data and software services company, has installed a Vortex CallMe browser-based communications platform for audio codecs to provide traffic bulletins across different platforms. Steve Perry, senior engineer, Inrix, said: “We have adopted CallMe as the standard for delivery of live, high-quality travel news services to our client base, including BBC Local Radio and commercial stations.”

Its presenters, based at Inrix’s travel centres across the UK, sound like they are with the host in the studio thanks to CallMe’s high-quality, low-latency audio. Feeds are usually received using Comrex Access codecs, of which there is a huge installed base, but stations are also installing low-cost CallMe-TS studio codecs dedicated to traffic news. Using the cloud-based IP audio is simple, even for one-off contributions, as the studio can send a web link accessible on a computer or mobile device that links to the

station’s own web platform, connecting directly to a codec in full broadcast quality. Each station has its own portal and the back-end device can be an existing codec or one of the new low-cost CallMe-T IP audio codecs. Listen Live links allow users to send audio streams to multiple destinations simultaneously from a single studio codec. A new admin interface coming soon will allow stations to take control of all these features and keep track of connections. 12.G11

Keeping antennas and engineers cosy TV Surface Heating Systems By Ian McMurray A range of removable satellite dish weather covers, for smaller

antennas such as Sky TV, has been designed and patented by TV Surface Heating Systems. The covers, which are made from an RF-invisible, thermoformed plastic and ink, allow any flag, logo or emblem to be

printed without distortion or discolouring. The covers can disguise existing rusty/unsightly dishes and are said to help reduce the effects of rain, sleet, hail and snow damage to the dish and TV reception.

On call: Studio quality using cloud-based IP audio with CallMe

Available in both passive and heated versions, the covers can be made to suit almost any satellite dish up 0.96m. Also on show is a range of electrically heated clothing that the company said was designed to help keep even the most inactive person warm during the coldest

of winters. Available in soft shell fabric, the vests and jackets have ‘thinsulate’-type insulation, front and rear heater panels and are powered by a standard 5V USB power bank (not supplied). They allow the wearer up to 10 hours of heating. 1.F59

Pennies or dollars? IABM End-User Index shows an industry in flux OUTLINED

Lorenzo Zanni, research analyst, IABM The IABM has been conducting a biannual End-User Survey for some time now in order to gauge market sentiment and future trends. This year IABM introduced a companion piece of research – the newly published End-User Index – to look at the actual performance of broadcast and media organisations. Read together they provide a unique quantitative and qualitative overview of the end-user business – where it is now and where it’s heading. On the surface the End-User Index makes positive reading: overall revenues for broadcast and media companies grew by 9 per cent between 2015 and 2016 (at constant exchange rates). Put that alongside the findings of the April 2017 End-User Survey, where 74 per cent of respondents were either quite or very positive in their outlook for the next three years, and we see a healthy, optimistic industry. Looking behind the headline numbers though shows an industry that’s also in flux – while revenues were up by 10 per cent for media networks and 8 per cent for pay-TV operators, only the latter are growing their profits – by 9 per cent – while media networks’ profits actually fell by 9

per cent. Since media networks account for 75 per cent of the market, this gives an aggregate decline in profits of 7 per cent between 2015 and 2016. So what’s going on? IABM calculated all the companies’ profit margins and divided them into groups according to their profit margin. Seven per cent of companies are in loss, 20 per cent have an operating profit margin that ranges 0-10 per cent, 51 per cent with a margin of 11-30 per cent, and 22 per cent with a margin greater than 30 per cent. An analysis of individual companies’ profit margins shows that most new media operators are either in the loss-making or the 0-10 per cent groups. This indicates that online delivery of content is based on a considerably smaller-margin business model than traditional broadcasting. Since its advent in the first decade of the 2000s, OTT has changed the economics of content delivery; the new online video providers’ business models are radically different from the ‘one-tomany’ distribution of traditional broadcasting. The ‘one-toone’ model advocated by

OTT providers is based on a more personal relationship with viewers, who can watch content on-demand whenever (and wherever) they like. This relationship is made possible by a fundamentally different technology infrastructure which allows for more flexibility and dynamism at the expense of the higher margins of traditional one-to-many broadcasting. Competition from online media outlets such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon has triggered a process of revenue diversification at traditional broadcasters. This diversification to include more online activities may be behind the profitability erosion highlighted by IABM figures. The media business is still healthy from a financial perspective – 93 per cent of companies were in profit – but delivery is moving online, explaining the 7 per cent decline in profits. This process not only involves the launch of new media offerings to complement existing linear broadcasting activities, but also the increased collaboration with social media platforms to reach younger audiences. For example, both CBS and Scripps Networks, two major US media networks, have publicly stated

that they are partnering or considering partnerships with social media operators. Kenneth Wayne Lowe, chief executive, Scripps Networks, said: “How can we partner, how can we go beyond our core audiences to younger audiences that are not necessarily on linear television? The real way to do it is to partner with Snapchat, with Facebook, on and on and on. We think it will pay off in the long term. I think sometimes we don’t get the credit for some of this expanding beyond the core linear television business, because it doesn’t show immediate payoff on the bottom line. It’s not about the money, it’s about the amount. Everything we do – and you can call it early stage experimentation or partnerships – is always with the point of view that this eventually is going to be a profit centre for us.” While broadcasters are launching new media offerings, what they want from suppliers is technology that makes their online operations more efficient and thus, profitable. In the meantime, some broadcasting organisations may continue to prioritise their traditional offerings. In fact, according to

Belden chief executive John Stroup, some broadcasters are investing much more in their linear broadcasting businesses than their online offerings because the former still makes them more money. He said: “Our traditional linear playout continues to grow and I think that’s because broadcasters recognise that although OTT is important it’s still a relatively small percentage of their revenues and a very small percentage of their advertising. Therefore, making investments in their linear playout is important.” Broadcasters that continue to invest in linear broadcasting activities may be playing a dangerous game by prioritising short-term benefits over long-term success; it is clear that audiences are shifting to online platforms. The erosion of profits highlighted by the IABM End-User Index data may be inevitable; traditional broadcast organisations need to continue to make their operations increasingly efficient to allow for a smooth transition to the new business models of online content delivery – moving from reliance on broadcasting dollars to harvesting digital pennies.

Audio over IP is converging in broadcast, intercom and commentary systems Ivan Olmeda, director of corporate strategy and development, AEQ and KROMA by AEQ AEQ is consolidating its development of audio, video and communications over IP for the broadcasting industry. When AEQ acquired KROMA Telecom, a company dedicated to intercom systems, we ported all the IP audio technology for broadcast that AEQ already had implemented into these systems. It effectively meant renewing the complete KROMA product line; contributing with DSP technology to user panels and making intercom systems provide true broadcast-quality audio. Now, therefore, the equipment infrastructure

has mixed functionality: audio mixing consoles, AoIP interfaces, intercom user panels and audio codecs are connected to the same router, creating a global, flexible and if required, redundant system that takes advantage of the simplicity and flexibility that IP technology provides. I allow for communications with the same audio quality that was previously only reserved for contribution and broadcasting. Commentary systems for large sporting events constitute a third field of application that AEQ has been working on for

almost 30 years. This year, it is really worthwhile paying a visit to our stand, dedicated to the concept of technological convergence with the AoIP intercom systems. The approach we have taken now allows us to have access to simpler systems and combine them with the intercom system, for example in mobile units. We have developed a new AoIP-based commentary unit. One of its three commentator channels can operate as a user panel in an intercom system: when connected to a mixed matrix,

It can also operate in other scenarios: as a stand alone unit, as all the mixing and signal selection is done locally using only the local inputs and outputs to communicate with the outside world; connected to a Dante or AES67 system, such as consoles, analogue

or digital interfaces, MADI or audio codecs, from any compatible manufacturer; and connected to a large commentary system, together with other tens or hundreds of commentary units to provide service at a large event. In this last case, and also when operating with intercom matrixes, the switch inside each commentary unit allows the connected Gigabit Ethernet cable to communicate the units to transport video, data or internet access for commentary guidance. 8.C55

8K VR live streaming on show Advantech By Heather McLean The possibilities of 8K virtual reality live streaming are being discussed on the Advantech stand, with a showcase of the VR capabilities of the company’s Vega-3304 encoding accelerator. Advantech said its Vega-3304 is the first commercial off-the-shelf accelerator to support single-channel 8Kp60 or 4-channel 4Kp60 real-time HEVC Main 10 contribution-grade encoding with SDI acquisition. “360° VR solution providers can use the VEGA3304 to build compact, high-quality VR live encoders that accelerate the next wave of innovation in the media industry,” claimed Advantech. VR has the potential to fully transform viewers’ experience but real mass adoption is likely to be subject to providing lifelike quality live content, stated Advantech, adding that this poses many infrastructure challenges. “After stitching, a 360° video can surpass even 8K resolution and the quality of viewer experience will depend on keeping a high resolution throughout the contribution

stages. Bandwidth optimisation is crucial to carry this back to the central distribution processing elements over existing networks, so HEVC plays a key role on VR live streaming enablement,” noted Advantech. However, the potential computational load of multiple 4K or even 8K HEVC encoding is a significant hurdle to overcome in real world deployments. Emily Teng, Vega video adapters product line manager, Advantech, said: “The Vega-3304 makes significant progress on off-the-shelf available processing acceleration. Its impressive encoding quality combined with its unrivalled 8K capacity provides a powerful tool to VR developers, [who] now have a straightforward plug-in accelerator to deal with 360° video processing struggles.”

INTRODUCING THE NEW, ULTRAVERSATILE IPL BATTERIES FROM IDX For some time, the E-HL9 has been the benchmark for camera batteries. But we’ve just bettered it, with our new ergonomically designed IPL-98 and IPL-150 models. They boast a host of features unmatched by any others. For example: They support continuous, 24-hours-a-day filming. When they’re stacked on the camera, power is drawn from the last battery rather than from all batteries simultaneously, so there’s no abrupt power loss which might require a change at a critical moment.

move follows a challenge posed by Cinedeck customer BBC Studioworks, around the need for more flexible live and archive DPP recording. Working closely with BBC Studioworks, Cinedeck has developed tools for Cinedeck recorders and cineXtools to create and edit files that adhere to the DPP specification while remaining agile enough for live recording and archive tasks. Like most file types including ProRes, DNx and XDCAM HD, Cinedeck recorders and the stand-alone cineXtools can be used to perform insert edits for video and audio changes to UK-DPP assets and cineXtools can modify DPP metadata instantly.

You can add budget IDX batteries on the back of the IPLs for extra versatility. As many as eight IPLs can be stacked on the 2-channel VL-2000S for charging. There are three DC output plugs for powering ancillaries, including a D-Tap advanced connector which allows you to use a low-cost charger. And there’s even a small torch built in to help you find items in the dark. Admit it, that’s all pretty clever.

Antenna mount offers Content managers on IBC launchpad greater capacity Globecast

Hiltron By Ian McMurray IBC has been chosen for the launch of Hiltron’s Super-HMAM large-capacity motorised antenna mount. Based on the HMAM three-axis motorised antenna mount, Super-HMAM is designed and built to accept much larger reflectors. Hiltron managing director Jan Molter said: “Produced for two-way VSAT communication or receive-only downlink applications, Super-HMAM was originally developed for a major German customer and is now being added to our catalogue. It accommodates satellite transmission antennas of up to 4.9m diameter, compared with the 2.7m maximum antenna capacity of the standard HMAM. “Integral to Super-HMAM is a newly developed support structure which can survive the storm conditions experienced at high-altitude relay and transmission locations where

wind speeds can exceed 200km per hour,” continued Molter. “All models in the HMAM range provide full motorised control of x and y axes as well as transmission beam polarity.” Like the standard HMAM, Super-HMAM can be controlled via an IP link from a PC running a graphic user interface compatible with standard web browsers. The control GUI displays all the information required to set and maintain azimuth, elevation and polarisation, including current position and target position plus a database of potentially accessible satellites. 5.B80 Super-HMAM is designed for much larger reflectors than its predecessor

The Media Manager Platform has been launched at IBC. It is designed to enable customers to clip, edit and publish high-quality content instantly across multiple outlets. Globecast said customers can create video-on-demand files from live streams and syndicate to multiple online services and across social media. According to Globecast, its expertise in covering live events enables its customers’ editorial teams to package action highlights during and after an event, then to publish to all screens. The company claimed that its intelligent media management system

GCXN is available as a complementary solution to satellite services

automatically allows content owners to increase viewer/ follower engagement, grow their audience and introduce new monetisation models. Also new for IBC is Globecast XN (GCXN), which enables users to leverage the public internet for distribution, disaster

recovery and monitoring services. GCXN enables customers to create and then distribute content wherever they may be, far quicker and more cost effectively than using traditional fibre networks, claimed Globecast. 1.A29

Griffin provides signal redundancy ETL Systems By Ian McMurray The recently launched Griffin Redundancy Switch provides signal redundancy for satellite modulators, downconverters, or modems, enabling switching to a standby path when an error occurs. The switching can be triggered by front panel, upon RF level detection, alarm contacts or connected to a network monitoring solution. Minimal impact from failure is

ensured thanks to hot-swap switch modules. The Griffin Redundancy Switch can be used for downlink and uplink applications, and can handle RF and ASI signal types. The device offers three switch module types, which can be mixed and matched within the unit to provide flexibility for different application types. The ASI module, which RTL claimed to be particularly pertinent for video streaming, caters for ASI/SD, SDI/HD and SDI/3GSDI signal types.

Andrew Bond, sales and marketing director, ETL Systems, said: “Broadcasters are under increasing pressure to provide content anywhere and anytime, often delivered to multiple platforms. In this highly competitive environment, having redundancy in place is becoming increasingly important. This solution makes that easy, while being flexible for a multitude of different applications.” 1.A33

theibcdaily OPINION OUTLINED

The need for versatility in battery technology Yashudi Wada, general manager, IDX Technology There have been dramatic changes to battery technology in recent times. Ten years ago, it appeared that the demand for V-lock batteries would decline as traditional shoulder-mounted ENG cameras became less popular. But, as it turned out, the advent of affordable LED lighting created a need for a simpler, low-cost V-mount solution such as the IDX Cue series. The flexibility needed to adapt to changing circumstances in this way applies to all aspects of battery design. The demand for large-capacity, high-load batteries has increased as solid state digital cameras

have replaced traditional film cameras. The heavy signal processing involved, and the number of peripherals which need to be powered, require batteries with a capacity of over 100Wh to achieve acceptable run times. However, this is a problem for crews who need to fly between locations, since there are restrictions on the carriage of batteries over 100Wh. The elegant solution to this problem was to enable two or more batteries below 100Wh to be linked together, thus creating the large-capacity, high-load power source needed to run everything. Yet this solution was not the end of the matter. When batteries are stacked on the

back of a camera, power is generally drawn from all batteries simultaneously. This can be an issue with potentially dire consequences if a change of batteries is needed at a critical moment. This problem has been overcome by the new IPL range from IDX. Available in two sizes, 98Wh and 150Wh, the charge is drawn from the last battery on the stack. This means that the rear batteries run down first and can be changed while shooting, making continuous 24-hour filming possible. The digital data output of the IPLs also lets you know exactly how much charge you have left, further reducing the risk of sudden power losses.

The IPL batteries, which we believe have bettered the E-HL9 range (until now, the industry benchmark), come with a number of other features which make them uniquely versatile. Lower cost batteries can be power linked to the IPLs, providing a cost-effective solution for camera operators. And with up to eight IPLs capable of being stacked charged on the VL-2000S charger, operators can sleep through the night since they no longer have to wake up and swap empty for charged batteries. A lightweight lowcost charging option is also possible through the D-Tap advanced socket. There is a range of outputs including

USB and D-Tap. And we’ve even built in a small V-Torch to help you find items in the dark, whether at the bottom of a kit bag or on a remote wildlife shoot in the middle of the night. That may be an unexpected feature but the design and build of the IPLs is everything you would expect from IDX. Stylish and ergonomic, reliable and durable, they look good on, and work outstandingly well with both broadcast and cinematography cameras. 12.C25

New yellobrik hits the road LYNX Technik By Mark Hallinger The modular interface provider has announced that its latest yellobrik is an SDI/HDMI to H.264 encoder for live streaming and recording. The PEC 1864 H.264 encoder allows users to simultaneously stream content while recording it, which Lynx said makes it an ideal product for delivering, streaming and

archiving content efficiently and affordably. The module houses two independent encoders: a stream encoder and a record encoder. Users can stream content with simultaneous recording, stream-only, or record-only. The independent encoders support different quality settings for the streamer and the recorder. For example, a user may wish to simultaneously stream content directly to the web in lower

generation HEVC compression technology. The new transmitter and decoder will be able to handle significantly higher bit rates than we have seen before and make 4K wireless transmission possible for the first time. We expect it to be the most exciting product launched at IBC and a perfect addition to DTC’s wireless camera system portfolio.”

DTC is also showing its miniature Broadcast Nano HD transmitter for the first time in Europe. Launched earlier this year, Broadcast Nano now incorporates a control panel, broadcaststandard connectors and forced cooling that is said to provide significantly improved thermal performance. 1.F41

Pirate warning OUTLINED

GeoGuard

By Anne Morris Geo-piracy should be taken more seriously by the content industry according to GeoGuard, which is making its debut at IBC. The company is showcasing how its solutions prevent consumers from using geo-piracy tools to gain illicit access to content services outside of their geographical location. David Briggs, co-founder and chairman, GeoGuard, said the

company believes that just as a chain is only as secure as its weakest link, “a content service is only as secure as the simplest attack that succeeds”. He added, “This is why we are exhibiting at IBC this year, so that we can demonstrate to content owners and distributors that we now have a powerful and accurate solution to protect against geo-piracy,”. On-stand demonstrations aim to show how having geo-piracy protection software in 250 million devices worldwide to protect

the gaming industry enables GeoGuard to understand and defeat new developments in geo-piracy. The company is also providing evidence of the scale of the geo-piracy problem, such as the fact that one in four internet users deploy VPNs to spoof their location and gain access to geo-restricted content. Briggs pointed to the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment anti-piracy coalition that was formed by 30 content creators and entertainment companies including Disney and HBO.

These developments include the iNews MOS Interface, which will allow DAD systems to play out assets from the Avid iNews newsroom computer system. By adding support for the Media Object Server (MOS)-based protocol used by newsroom computer systems, DAD users can now manage – add, move, and modify – audio embedded in

Briggs: “Hitting pirates where it hurts most”

IEEE: ATSC 3.0 and pathways to implementation CONFERENCE TODAY By Chris Forrester

By Heather McLean For its new fleet of 4K UHD-enabled broadcast vehicles, Arena Television approached Videlio to help it make the jump to IP. The £20 million project included three OBs and one presentation vehicle. OB-X covers the English Premier League in 4K for BT Sport and works in conjunction with the new OB12 presentation vehicle that recently went live; OB-Y follows the English Rugby Union in HD for Sky Television; and the future OB-Z. Vincent Loré, CEO, Videlio Media, said: “This 2017 edition is an opportunity to share the lessons we have learned from deploying the first fleet of IP trucks for

“This shows that the leading content owners and OTT providers not only understand the scale of the piracy issue, but also realise that the only realistic way to defeat piracy is through close collaboration,” he said. “We believe it’s critical that the content industry goes one step further by working with companies like GeoGuard to make sure that every new leak is sealed as soon as it’s identified as a potential threat – this means we hit pirates where it hurts most, their cashflow…geo-piracy is a multibillion-dollar issue that now needs to be addressed.”

ATSC 3.0 has been described as “the future for broadcasting” at least in North America and those other nations that have adopted US transmission standards. It is the cornerstone of plans to migrate transmission to ‘next-generation’ broadcasting which can be 4K/Ultra HD, high dynamic range and wider colour gamut advantages. [Emerald 11:00-13:00] IBC and its IEEE partner have created a major session devoted to ATSC 3.0 that will provide a thorough overview of its impact, extending from basic information for the non-scientist delegate, up to key implementation strategies. With ATSC 3.0 creating the risk of co-channel interference with the ‘old’ ATSC 1.0/DTV

iNews stories. Changes are automatically synchronised with playlists to keep everything up to date. Enco has also added MetaPub metadata management to its PADapult program, DAD radio automation now extends across news production and content delivery which integrates with DAD and allows operators to send real-time texts web streamers or other locations to primary and secondary HD that accept data. With the new radio channels, RDS encoders, built-in MetaPub functionality,

transmissions, the session will address this problem too. Three papers will be presented, from: Guy Bouchard, a consultant to the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society, who will overview the standard; Reza Soleymani, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Concordia University Canada, who will cover mitigation of co-channel interference; and Yiyan Wu, a fellow of the IEEE, who is a principal research scientist at the Communications Research Centre in Ottawa, Canada and also editor in chief of the IEEE’s Transactions on Broadcasting. Wu will describe how co- and adjacent channel interference can be controlled and placed in strategic locations. Furthermore, this paper will suggest methods to make unavoidable interference less objectionable to services user.

PADapult can now get rich metadata from ContentDepot’s MetaPub, which a majority of PRSS programs use for metadata distribution, including Classical 24, BBC World Service, Morning Edition, and more. PADapult users can then provide that metadata to listeners for any live PRSS programme. 8.D74

Match offers real-time detection of programmatic errors

Qligent

By Mark Hallinger Available as a cloud-based solution or on-premise software, Match from Qligent is being unveiled at IBC2017. Match provides real-time, automated comparison of transport stream video and audio to spot and flag programmerelated errors as the signals move across multi-platform distribution platforms. The evolution of Qligent Vision now encompasses objective errors (QoS), subjective errors (QoE), and programmatic errors (Match), said the company. Ted Korte, COO, Qligent, said: “At various points in the distribution chain, Match can decode the transport stream back to baseband video and audio, and compare that version with reference data it captured of the programme in its native state prior to distribution. In analysing the content, Match looks for programmatic errors and anomalies that may have occurred due to repeated encoding, multiplexing or other processes as the signals move downstream.” The moment Match detects an inconsistency, it triggers alarms and alerts – such as emails or texts – so that costly broadcast errors can be prevented or mitigated before they adversely impact compliance requirements or viewers’ QoE. Match provides a toolset to identify today’s most common media distribution errors, including: airing the wrong show, or putting a show on the wrong channel; capturing programmatic local ad splicing errors; assigning a foreign language to the wrong audio track; or mistaking a static image for frozen video.

theibcdaily OPINION OUTLINED

Is QC in media workflows more important than ever before? Penny Westlake, European sales director, Interra Systems The demand for video and audio content across multiple distribution chains is growing faster than ever before. At the same time, there is constant pressure on pay-TV and broadcast budgets to do more for less. The range of video quality output, from very high-value productions to instant mobile phone captures, is increasing exponentially, as global demand for video explodes. Online streaming services have introduced a new level of competitiveness into the market, with much wider choices, and it’s never been easier for consumers to switch services if they don’t receive a high quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) at all times.

The quality control (QC), monitoring and analysis solutions available are increasingly sophisticated and creative. On one level they make it much easier for operators to manage content, but on another level, if things do go wrong, it becomes much harder to detect where the error happened and to gain accurate information about what needs to be corrected. Whether a system is mixed, in the cloud, or on premise, it is even more essential than ever before to be able to independently QC and monitor at different points in the workflow, from capture to arrival at the consumer. IBC2017 is a great opportunity for Interra Systems

to show our customers and potential customers its solutions to assure high-quality, high-capacity video delivery to every screen through exhaustive QC checks, ABR stream validation, real-time QoS/QoE measurements at the content delivery stage, live content monitoring, and deep-dive compressed stream analysis. This year, we anticipate that hot topics will include HDR, IP, compression techniques, and advanced integrated workflows for multiple contribution and distribution chains. As specialists in QC, we see an increasing need for in-depth analysis within an increasingly fast-moving environment.

Content analysis has to be available for the many new formats and encoding techniques that are entering the market. QC systems must be fully integrated with multiple partner suppliers, and also must offer flexibility. At IBC we are showing new hybrid QC solutions for our Baton product, combining auto QC with human “eyeball” checks. Our philosophy is to ensure that the best tools on the market are available to our customers, whether it’s a research lab designing chips using our Vega media analysers, a broadcaster choosing a new encoding platform with Baton and Vega, or a telco setting up a new OTT service using our Orion

New portable IP audio codec Comrex By Mark Hallinger According to Comrex, the new Access NX codec is the result of a decade of IP audio transmission advancements and is refined for the remote experience. It is designed for a wide range of applications – including ENG, sports

Testing times ahead for DTV OUTLINED

Eurofins Digital Testing By Ian McMurray In a highly fragmented multiscreen video market, exhibitor Eurofins Digital Testing believes that QoS and QoE are quickly becoming primary customer retention and engagement factors. According to the company, the growing

complexity of video use cases and technology offered to the end-customer by digital TV operators requires new testing approaches. According to Eurofins, with an increased pressure on |time-tomarket, without compromising end-to-end quality, operators are seeking improved methods for quality assurance that yield an uptick in development and

integration quality. A state-ofthe-art testing solution is, the company claimed, instrumental in providing overall quality assurance for the end-to-end system, assures services in a complex and rapidly evolving device and network landscape, and helps operators improve KPIs and NPS. The company aims to address this with a suite of automated

test tools and services that are designed to help TV operators worldwide reduce development, testing and deployment cycles to accelerate service delivery, and support a more continuous delivery environment. Eurofins validates digital media systems for operators such as Freesat, Sky Deutschland, Vodafone Group, Liberty Global, Kabel Deutschland and Freeview.

Flexible and scalable DRM Viaccess-Orca By Ian McMurray On show at IBC is Viaccess-Orca’s multi-DRM suite, claimed to provide pay-TV operators with flexible and scalable possibilities for

securing premium content on any device and in any delivery format. With the recent acquisition of Squadeo’s multimedia QuickPlayer, Viaccess-Orca said it allows operators to securely deliver live and VoD content on PC, Mac and connected mobile

The real-time breach detection capabilities of Connected Sentinel DRM, which is based on machine learning algorithms, constitute a natural addition to Viaccess-Orca’s content protection product portfolio, it notes. At IBC, the company is demonstrating what it says are real-time actionable insights that a content security analyst can extract

devices including Android and iOS. The Connected Sentinel multi-DRM backend platform is currently in use by more than 30 operators around the world and has, according to the company, been successfully deployed on 4K STBs for IPTV offerings.

Through its tools, professional testing support services, staffing of onsite personnel and training, Eurofins said it helps pay-TV operators increase test coverage and consistency to provide service validation, insights into the end-user experience and performance monitoring for quality assurance. 5.B45

from the analytics console of the Connected Sentinel DRM solution. Also being showcased is what the company describes as a new-generation solution for anti-piracy protection that it says has already attracted a lot of interest among operators, allowing them to combat illegal streaming on the web with real KPIs. 1.A51

True 4K for wireless cameras OUTLINED

Broadcast Wireless Systems By Ian McMurray The Sapphire 4K Codec System, which is designed to enable 4K wireless cameras to be used on productions in exactly the same way as standard HD systems, is being showcased by Broadcast Wireless Systems (BWS).

Stuart Brown, managing director, BWS, said: “Although some 4K wireless systems have been available previously, the long latency inherent in such systems meant they were relegated for use on longrange aerial shots because they cannot be intercut with cabled cameras. Sapphire changes all that with the ability to offer true 4K coverage rather than having to up-convert

images from standard HD wireless cameras.” Sapphire can encode UHD signals at up to 50/59 frame rate in 4:20/4:2:2 8-bit and 10-bit. Sapphire can also encode four simultaneous standard HD 1080p50/59 signals, which BWS explained was useful for wireless slo-mo, multi-camera and aerial downlink applications. Its compact size enables it to be easily attached to a wide

range of camera types, while low power consumption enables long battery run times and requires minimal cooling. “We believe the price of Sapphire is extremely competitive given its powerful combination of features,” continued Brown. “Units can be purchased with a basic feature-set and upgraded via software in the future.” 1.A78

theibcdaily Q&A OUTLINED

Muriel Le Bellac, chief executive, Videomenthe Has IBC come at a good time for the electronic media industry? Why?

IBC2017 is a tremendous time to shine the spotlight on these solutions, whether they are from leading or emerging companies.

We are living in an exciting time that is allowing us to push back the limits of processing and making our content available via multiple devices. We should take advantage of this and exploit every solution and every revolutionary method, in a progressive and flexible way, to gain the greatest benefit from it.

What do you think are the key developments in, or threat to, your market sector at the current time? Let’s talk about the cloud then. One of the approaches is to view the cloud as an extension of the on-site facilities. By the way,

this use case was Eolementhe’s [Videomenthe’s media workflow platform] starting point. But the sector is not 100 per cent cloudready. Our answer is to offer standalone and hybrid SaaS modes, in addition to the SaaS mode. So, we propose several options to fit current models and practices by providing sustainable and transitional solutions while being ready for cloud adoption in the near future.

Why should delegates visit your stand at IBC? We have just released a major update: Eolementhe version 4. The interface has been improved so that it is even more easy to use with a complete set of features. We have also extended the choice of partner solutions for processing media files, allowing for seamless integration into the clients’ workflows, whether they are

production or post-production houses, TV channels, a video content platform or journalists. So, when visiting our booth, we will show you how-to run media files workflows from a laptop and a smartphone too. 2.B39

Booth 10D31

By Ian McMurray A topic of discussion with visitors on the Zenterio stand is how it recently completed the migration to Zenterio OS of the first 85,000 legacy set-top boxes for COSMOTE TV, the OTE Group’s pay-TV platform. COSMOTE TV began delivering set-top boxes based on Zenterio OS in 2015. The service, rebranded as COSMOTE TV in November 2016, is available over both satellite and IP networks, and now has more than 503,000 subscribers across Greece. In 2016, COSMOTE TV introduced its hybrid service, becoming the first operator in Greece to combine broadcast television with content delivered over the internet. Hybrid subscribers gained access to movies and TV series on-demand plus catch-up TV, all delivered through their STBs. OTE and Zenterio worked together to enable these features on the COSMOTE TV platform, with Zenterio developing the updates to the user interface as well as providing the box operating system. In addition, Zenterio acted as the primary system integrator for the project. 5.C11

theibcdaily OPINION OUTLINED

Empowering the cloud: A key business driver in today’s media landscape Mike Palmer, vice president of business strategy, Masstech Innovations Today’s media landscape is changing rapidly. Clearly, one of the key movements is a fundamental shift towards IT and cloud-based services, with Gartner recently reporting that cloud adoption strategies will impact more than 50 per cent of IT outsourcing deals through the year 2020. Growth within media has been driven by the increasingly rapid shift from bespoke technologies to standardised IT infrastructures hosting media services. IP and the cloud are increasingly important components of the broadcast infrastructure. The concept of cloud is pretty straightforward, but implementation in any specific environment can be a challenge:

cost, performance and value can vary widely among public, private and hybrid cloud models that provide roughly the same functions. To address these issues, Masstech has broadened the definition of hierarchical storage management to work seamlessly across the full spectrum of storage solutions, from on-premise to multiple cloud providers. Masstech helps customers manage the additional complexity of hybrid storage providers by serving as a dynamic and transparent bridge across multiple services. In fact, we recently unveiled major MAM and workflow enhancements that make it easy for media

Strengthening IP data protection for radio GatesAir By Mark Hallinger Making its European debut is Intraplex IPConnect, a software application designed to fortify data transport across IP networks. Available as an option in most Intraplex IP Link codecs, GatesAir claimed IPConnect solves the problem of reliable data transport across complex networks that traditionally suffer data loss through dropped packets. The software data gateway provides extra protection through packet encapsulation, which encloses the external IP data packets in a GatesAir protocol wrapper as it

moves across IP networks. GatesAir said that unlike other applications, IPConnect provides this protection for studio-generated data, as well as IP data from external sources. While the former might include RDS data or SNMP control signals to trigger a command at the transmitter site, the latter may incorporate programme or control data coming from a network operations centre, satellite feed or advertising service. The IPConnect software represents the first product phase of an ongoing development plan, which will include a dedicated hardware device, said GatesAir.

advances in cloud services and infrastructure, but more importantly it provides a venue in which it can share our experiences in the different and evolving ways media producers are leveraging this technology. Media producers should ask vendors hard questions such as: what features are cloud enabled? How many cloud services are supported? Can you work in a hybrid environment? Is a move to the cloud right for me? And how can I maximise my investment and my ROI? As we know, there’s no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to the cloud. It’s not a singular approach. In fact, there are use cases that are not

appropriate for the cloud, at least not today. This is one of many reasons attendees to IBC should visit Masstech Innovations this year. We have the experience and technical acumen to help the industry better understand the myriad combinations of asset management with cloudenabled storage. Truthfully, we don’t have a bias towards cloud or on-premise storage, our focus is providing customers management of their assets, wherever they choose to store them, now and in the future. 7.J15t

Simplifying content encryption castLabs By Anne Morris The CENC Converter from castLabs unveiled at this year’s IBC is designed to enable content to be decrypted and re-encrypted from AES-CTR to AES-CBC-based schemes and from AES-CBC to AES-CTR schemes. The company said this eliminates the need for multiple versions of the same content, supports one encryption scheme, and simplifies both

MPEG-DASH and HLS multi-device playback. CastLabs added that Google has rolled out support for AES-CBC based schemes across Android and Chromecast, and Microsoft is expected to follow. It noted that while DRM convergence is still far from reality, the two major DRM technologies, Microsoft PlayReady and Google Widevine, may be joining FairPlay Streaming from Apple in supporting AES-CBC based encryption by the end of 2017. 14.L02

theibcdaily OPINION OUTLINED

The clear path towards an ideal IP broadcast environment Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing, Matrox Video Products Group There is no denying that broadcasters worldwide have a cost-driven desire to move from SDI to IP. Broadcasters envision an IP video infrastructure built – as an IT data centre – on generic COTS hardware, allowing for a smaller footprint where systems can be repurposed. Based on this desire, there is also a hope that these systems will be able to take advantage of the same network interface cards (NICs) commonly used in general-purpose networking. However, live uncompressed video is not standard network traffic and this is why Matrox

believes in the need for a video-aware COTS card for IP broadcast workflows. This has been met with some degree of scepticism within the broadcast community. Many have attempted to prove that CPU-driven NICs can offer a stable solution for broadcast video. These deployments fail to live up to the expectations of what an IP solution should do and the requirements of broadcasting. Even in HD-only workflows, using a generalpurpose NIC forces the use of expensive systems and compromises IO density, 24/7 reliability and interoperability.

As 4K becomes a reality throughout broadcast workflows, general purpose NICs are not a viable option. SDI infrastructures have raised expectations in the broadcast industry, resulting in a demand for such benefits as deterministic operation and interoperability. In order to achieve the benefits of a broadcast IP infrastructure, it must first be able to attain the same level of performance provided by SDI. Because of this prerequisite, broadcasters have realised that a broadcast NIC is needed to complete their vision of a COTS-based

environment. A broadcast NIC must not only take video, audio and ANC data and turn it into appropriate IP packets, but also manage critical functions such as transmission, hitless protection (2022-7), PTP management, as well as instant recognition and connection. The good news is that there are such solutions available in the market today. Matrox’s DSX LE4 IP and X.mio3 IP broadcast NICs allow broadcasters to achieve the reliability, quality and interoperability that they need and expect. By providing these broadcast NICs for integration in COTS systems, we offer hardware acceleration where needed, freeing up CPU cycles while guaranteeing interoperability and 24/7 reliability. The days of confusion regarding how to move the

industry from SDI to IP are ending and we are finally seeing a clear path towards the ideal IP broadcast environment. The work of AIMS and SMPTE towards establishing ST 2110 as the backbone for IP has helped pave the way towards real world adoption. As large-scale deployments begin, Matrox’s original vision – of using broadcast NICs in IP workflows – is proving to be the best way forward for everyone. 7.B29

Commentary’s third generation AEQ By Mark Hallinger More than 30 years of experience supporting large international sporting events can be seen in the presentation of AEQ’s ‘third generation’ Olympia 3 commentary unit, according to the company. The device is used to generate and send the unilateral audio signals (commentary) from an event venue to a radio or

television broadcaster. It can operate in three different ways: as a standalone unit (audio mixer), simply connected to a control PC; as a part of an AoIP intercom system operating on a multichannel audio network while at the same time being an intercom panel (the unit is Dante native and AES67 compatible); or as part of a large scale commentary system. Each unit features three GigE ports. One of them allows for PoE supply while the other two

allow for daisy chain connection and have auxiliary output for video and data transport. It can also operate as a standalone audio mixer that may be configured as mono or stereo, with routing, tone adjustments and dynamics control. The Olympia 3 allows for the connection of up to three microphones (one of these can be set to work as the order microphone when operating as an intercom panel whenever required) and two line inputs.

Consistent smart productions with DashBoard Ross Video

By Heather McLean The theme of smart production, which the company said required a comprehensive platform that can configure, manage and control all the systems used in various types of productions across the network regardless of vendor, is highly visible at the Ross stand. Greg Quirk, marketing product manager for DashBoard and Legislative Market, Ross Video, said: “What is needed is a single interface for configuration instead of a separate control

system for each component. Our DashBoard solution configures and controls other Ross products and over 120 openGear partner devices,

plus protocols for other third-party devices can be programmed in as well.” With DashBoard, components become

integrated together so they all interact as needed. One button push on a panel is able to make 10 different things happen synchronously or with offset, instead of having to push a variety of different buttons on different devices. DashBoard enables faster, easier and more reproducible control that provides more consistent productions, claimed Ross. DashBoard extends the utility of the components of the devices it controls to better meet user requirements, instead of having to accept a system with limitations of what is really desired, added Quirk. 11.C10

Software is enabling greater multiviewer interactivity and flexibility Erik Otto, chief executive, Mediaproxy Until recently, television was a mostly passive experience. Viewers would watch whatever was available at a given time from a set number of channels. For broadcast engineers this meant that multiviewers were mostly static as they were used to monitoring a limited selection of live linear television transmissions. With an increasing amount of television content being viewed on demand and OTT, broadcasters now need to monitor a variety of different types of content services delivered over a variety of networks and from a multitude of sources. In addressing increasingly heterogeneous workflows, a new generation of

multi-viewers are required as part of software-based broadcast monitoring and incidence management systems. Apart from purely technical considerations, the demand for greater multi-viewing flexibility and agility is also being driven by a couple of other industry trends. One is the agility of broadcasters themselves who are increasingly looking to decentralise their facilities and enable access to master control room functions from anywhere. Another is the industry’s drive to attract new talent from among the very same millennials who have reshaped broadcast consumption. By moving to software-based monitoring,

multi-viewing, and on-air incidence management, broadcasters are able to adapt to change while improving the quality of their services. Mediaproxy’s Monwall multiviewer displays not only real-time video and audio faulty conditions, but more importantly metadata information such as ETR290, missing PIDs, SCTE ad insertion triggers, OTT stream information, loudness, audio watermarks, closed caption and DVB subtitles. Rather than being a passive tool, Monwall enables engineers to interact with the individual panels and metadata to assess the health of their transmissions from different points across a delivery network, including

terrestrial playout and local CDN edge points. Live video can be sourced natively over SDI or TS, or be viewed as proxy streams in situations where bandwidth is limited. The high level of flexibility also enables panels to be dynamically adapted for different types of workflows and customised for specific users from any location. The agility of our software-based multi-viewer means that when issues appear during live broadcasts, the underlying cause can be immediately identified by expanding all available data from within a TS section tree. Different sources including encoder outputs, ASI ingests, or even CDN feeds can be

dynamically focused on depending on which workflow is active. By empowering engineers through real-time interaction and customisation of individual layouts broadcasters are better able to isolate transmission events and rapidly resolve on-air incidents. For engineers and executives looking to access monitoring functions beyond their master control room, the Aircheck mobile app is now available via the App Store and Google Play. At IBC we are demonstrating the new Aircheck multi-viewer which can be adapted to different offsite situations. 7.J07

Wireless upgrade for ENG crews ABonAir By Will Strauss A microwave system for ENG or video assist, claimed to be an affordable option to enable camera crews to transmit video wirelessly over distances of up to 750m, is on show at IBC2017. The camera-mounted AB405 from ABonAir has a built-in bi-directional radio channel

between the transmitter and receiver that acknowledges the correct acceptance of each group of pixels. This is said to provide “exceptionally robust and reliable transmission”, according to its developers. The AB405 enables video to be transmitted up to 750m and has an LCD display and a frequency selector. Also at IBC is ABonAir’s AB512 wireless microwave

link system which uses H.264 compression and is said to deliver video with a seven millisecond delay. The AB512 supports ABonAir’s Fibre Coverage Extension (FCE), enabling the connection of a single receiver to multiple FCEs. Suggested applications include horse racing venues, covering race track, stables and the winning circle. 2.A58

Proof of concept or “please offer consultancy”? Tom Gittins, chief executive, Pebble Beach Systems, is not convinced that vendors should be allowing their customers to try before they buy Would you expect a builder to build you a new custom home just so you could see if you would like living there before you’d signed on the dotted line? Of course not. Taking this metaphor a step further, would you expect that builder to bring in tradespeople to hook up the electricity and plumbing just so you could test the light switches, cook a meal, or soak in the bath, all before spending a cent? Again, you wouldn’t. You wouldn’t even expect the architect or design consultant to deliver the drawings without a signed contract. But that’s essentially what many vendors of virtualised solutions are being asked to do. This increasingly common

exercise – known as proof of concept (POC) – stems from the fact that prospective buyers want to see their own bespoke channels actually “playing out of the cloud” before they buy. And they often want to see those virtual channels working with their preferred traffic system, graphics engine and other devices that comprise their existing broadcast infrastructure, just to prove that everything works. While there is an undeniable enchantment to the virtualised broadcast environment, it’s not something that can be created by waving a magic wand. In fact, the proof of concept construct requires vendors to expend large sums of money and time in order to build

broadcast infrastructures on spec, leading us to wonder at times whether POC actually stands for “please offer consultancy (for free)” And rather than reassuring buyers, the whole process could backfire if unforeseen technical issues are uncovered that require multiple vendors to work together to address them. Just as with the homebuilder, a systems integrator would need to take the lead, managing the project and vendors from start to finish so the buyer could have a satisfactory “walk through” of the property. We at Pebble Beach Systems understand that customers want assurances that their high-value channels will be safe when they step

out onto the cloud. But our engineers – who have long had their “heads-in-the-cloud”– designed our solution in a way that doesn’t require a leap of faith, based on the principle that evolution is nearly always better than revolution. However, when engaging a team of valuable minds to stand up a complex real-world broadcast scenario, it’s important that the cost burden is shared in a way that makes sense for both parties. A proof of concept has its place but it’s important to understand what you are asking for, and exactly how valuable it can be. Pebble’s evolutionary approach towards getting organisations into newer technologies means

Keeping the user in control Ferdinand Maier, chief executive, Ruwido Austria It appears that voice assistants are everywhere today and are kickstarting a new trend of ambient voice user interfaces. Due to improvements in natural language understanding, people are also becoming increasingly open to the idea of talking to their devices in everyday life. But is it likely that ambient speech search will also replace built-in speech search like on remote controls for TV interaction? It seems to be convenient to control connected home objects with a single device like the voice assistant, always listening and always being available for

your personal needs. But, on closer inspection, if the only way to control all devices is voice – especially the TV in the living room – it is unlikely to be successful in the long term. The user must not be forced to talk if they do not want to, or if they just cannot talk in a certain situation. Further critical aspects to consider in terms of TV navigation are the ability of virtual voice assistants to take decisions and act by themselves as well as the need to continuously process data from the user. Users are always looking for the most natural and simplest

way to interact with their TV, and voice can be a powerful modality to do this. But it is also important to empower them to choose how to interact within today’s TV environment. The findings of our scientific research have shown that to really deliver an experience that puts the user back in control, voice should be integrated alongside high-quality button-based input and more dynamic interaction solutions like Ruwido’s organic haptic. Such multimodal input devices make content more easily accessible in an ever-growing amount of TV

Disasters averted with Cloud DVR enhancement Anevia

By Ian McMurray OTT and IPTV software vendor Anevia is announcing the launch of Disaster Recovery, as an extension of its Cloud DVR offer. Last year at IBC, Anevia announced that its Cloud DVR would include an Embedded Distributed Storage solution. The addition of Disaster Recover, a ‘dual site’ solution, is said to allow operators to guarantee that

their subscribers will never lose a recorded piece of content. Recordings are stored on two synchronised platforms. Even if one fails, Anevia claimed, the recordings are safe and accessible by the viewer forever. Disaster Recovery is also designed to optimise bandwidth usage and network link traffic. Anevia has already deployed Disaster Recovery with its long-standing customer, net+, in Switzerland. This multimedia

service provider has relied on Anevia’s Cloud DVR, timeshifting and catchup TV solutions for a number of years to keep up with new TV consumption trends. The company turned to Disaster Recovery to solve the problem of migrating its offer from an IPTV platform to an OTT platform, without losing any recorded content, and while ensuring continuity of service with its users. 5.B66

4K modular multiviewers presented Craltech Electronica By Heather McLean New 4K modular multiviewers, 3G professional LCD monitors and a cost-effective 4K-ready quad-split LCD monitor series are being showcased here at IBC by Craltech.

systems and customise your broadcast.” The 4Craft is a compact 4K multiviewer featuring a 10-bit image processing engine with low processing delay. The modular design allows users to create custom solutions of up to 16 inputs (3G/HD/SD SDI) and up to four 3G/HD SDI outputs and one 4K HDMI output, and display all inputs on-screen simultaneously in any size and position. 4Craft integrates Craltech’s B2B-Link system to cascade

equipments without adding delay, the company claimed, to increase the number of sources to be displayed in a system. An Ethernet connector allows control of the multiviewer remotely using Craltech’s drag and drop Remote Control Software.

offerings. Voice interaction, particularly the ability to search for content, is the beginning of a major opportunity for the future of television. The remote control supports the feeling of being in control over the device and can reduce privacy concerns due to button activated speech search modality rather than ambient speech search. We at Ruwido also believe in the potential of voice in terms of user identification as well as personalisation. But the success of both features will be heavily dependent on how much of their personal information each user is prepared to offer

in return for a more tailored service, and on how transparent and understandable policies of data usage are for them. Conducting research and creating solutions that deliver this type of innovation in built-in voice recognition will ultimately enable users to better interact with their TVs and enhance the user experience. 1.D69

Doing away with the middle man Dalet By Mark Hallinger Orchestration is enterprise media management software that integrates content pools and automates workflows across different verticals including programmes, promos, news, sport, lifestyle and more.

Free apps? No, thanks. Broadcast requires dedicated software and hardware Ian Prowse, director, Vortex Communications We do things now that we never dreamed about doing even a decade ago and for virtually no money, free even. As soon as the internet became a real-time resource, for the first time allowing streaming from virtually anywhere, applications such as Skype arrived that allowed us to talk to the family on the other side of the world. For free. And with moving pictures. Then, with the advent of the smartphone, Skype became possible from anywhere. FaceTime came along and everyone had a movie camera in their pocket. Phone calls might be a bit ropey – the image would often freeze – but it was not bad for free and for free you can put up with quite a lot.

On the other hand, there was a time – and it wasn’t so very long ago – when in broadcasting, even five seconds of dead air was investigated and an apology for losing the line was rarely heard. That is no longer the case. Even on flagship programmes contributors can often sound ‘phasey’ with a bit of an echo, calls drop out and the content is lost in poor quality. The use of domestic and semi-professional equipment and software can have its place but, while it can provide immediacy in the absence of something more reliable, using it as a rule is broadcasting on the cheap. Of course, properly integrated free stuff can work well and

possible distribution technique that offers the broadcaster and their viewers the best possible added value throughout the entire lifecycle of the content. “This change will require broadcasters to reinvent their businesses and get software and broadcast systems that will enable them to meet this new world head-on.” Whats’On has modules for rights and finance management, material management and compliance, promos and interstitials, workflow automation and reporting. 3.C59

On the subject of dedicated hardware, many smaller community and hospital radio stations simply could not afford even a bottom-end full-blown codec and were relying on the combinations described above. True, it was better than nothing, but how much better if there was a reliable, simple, low-cost IP audio codec available. And that is how CallMe-T was born. It was designed as a hardware back-end for CallMe, it sits on the internet at the station and contributors and reporters connect to it using CallMe Click-and-Connect on their mobile phone browser or desktop computer, achieving stable live two-way 15kHz stereo audio.

It may not be quite as good as a multi-streaming codec with all the bells and whistles but it is a huge step up from the domestic solution. Moving on almost by accident, it was suggested that if two CallMe-Ts could connect to each other, it would make an ideal low-cost solution for converting for use over IP the huge installed base of ISDN codec/mixers. And so we move forward producing reliable hardware and dedicated software which still have their place. 12.G11

Low delay HEVC leads the way for UHD Appear By Ian McMurray

By Will Strauss The broadcast management system Whats’On is being shown, operating as a single tool that can be used for scheduling both VoD and linear content at the same time. The MediaGeniX-developed platform consists of fully integrated modules that manage the flow of content from concept to delivery. The ability to schedule both VoD and linear content simultaneously is a recent development for Whats’On. Explaining the rationale, Michel Beke, senior vice president of product strategy, MediaGeniX, said: “This business is no longer about filling linear channels with content, and it is no longer about offering as many titles as possible on VoD services. The future of broadcasting is about choosing the best

Vortex takes advantage of the latest browser capabilities, with its cloud-based audio codec called CallMe Click-and-Connect. Contributors connect to the studio with high-quality 15kHz audio by simply clicking on a web link in their browser – sent by the studio – which takes them to the station’s branded CallMe portal through which they are connected to one of the station’s dedicated codecs. By using a resilient managed CallMe server and reliable back-end codecs, far better results with stable connections are the norm, as opposed to trusting the broadcast to a computer which may be running lots of different applications and with indifferent sound.

Highlighted on the company’s stand is new UHD encoding/ decoding hardware, part of a range of video processing platforms for broadcast and streaming high-quality video. Appear said the hardware combines ultra-high density – up

to 12 UHD HEVC encodes per 1RU – with high video quality. A variety of input/output options is available, including traditional SDI up to 12G SDI and SDI over IP (SMPTE 2022-6, SMPTE 2110). For low delay contribution applications, the module has a 4:2:2 10-bit mode with ultra-low latency, delivering UHD in less than 150ms glass-to-glass. Complementing the video engine

is an audio engine delivering up to 32 stereo audio channels in all common audio codecs and channel configurations. Carl Walter Holst, CEO, Appear, said: “[This] hardware platform provides the newest option for low delay HEVC contribution and distribution with the opportunity to be in accordance with today’s audio industry standards.” 1.C61

Cloud-based scripting service launched Zoo Digital By Ian McMurray A cloud-based scripting service for TV and movie content that creates scripts that can be repurposed efficiently, ultimately accelerating the localisation process, has been launched by Zoo Digital. The service is powered by ZOOscripts, the company’s cloud-based scripting software. Zoo said it had developed the platform to address the

challenges faced by content owners and distributors with the traditional localisation process. This includes the pressures caused by shrinking release windows for the launch of new movies and TV shows. According to Zoo, a significant part of the postproduction process is the creation of scripts containing the spoken dialogue of a TV programme or movie. ZOOscripts is claimed to enable these materials to be created efficiently with all the necessary

metadata flowing seamlessly into the localisation process. Gordon Doran, president, Zoo, said: “ZOOscripts is another example of how we’re responding to the challenges content owners and distributors face by using our cloud-powered technology to make the localisation process as efficient as possible. We’re constantly developing new approaches like this to help them distribute their TV and movie content on any platform.” 5.B48

“We haven’t bashed FANG* enough yet!” OUTLINED

By Chris Forrester Advertising’s ‘Mad Men’ panel heard Allen Klosowski, VP, advanced solutions group, SpotX, sum up the state of the industry. He said that the ad-path was already complex, but adding in the many options created by the shift to non-linear, plus discoverable devices, and programmatic, impressions and targeting along with the future prospects of true addressability, and you have a “really big deal” to solve. Aswin Navin (CEO/ Samba TV) agreed, adding

that consumers today had unlimited access to content, but advertisers still needed to address those viewers and users, and it was fascinating that TV is getting more addressable, and thus more measurable. Automation tools and advanced analytics are all helping, said Jon Block (VP/ EMEA, product & placement at Videology), who welcomed the prospects of dynamic ad-insertion although cautioned that regulation and legal requirements could make life more difficult.

Those addressability options are already a reality for some of Liberty Global’s subscribers, said John Paul, MD, advanced advertising and data, adding that “data is key, but yield is everything” for advertisers. “The world has moved on from the ‘spray and pay’ advertising methods,” said Les Carter, VP and chief architect, Cadent Technology, “and is shifting into data-driven TV.” The panel welcomed the challenges, and recognised that viewers were shifting to OTT pretty quickly and thus creating additional headaches for the Mad

Men. “But there’s no better way of reaching a large market than a well-crafted 30-second ad in the middle of a peak-time show,” said Block. “Generally, broadcasters are only just becoming aware of the changes. ‘Talk to me in five years’ one player said to me recently, but we can do this stuff today.”

The panel agreed that the threat from FANG (“which we haven’t bashed enough yet”, said one), and a Netflix ‘freemium’ model could appear by 2019 “which might be very interesting”. *Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google

AI helps produce clips OUTLINED

AWS Elemental By Ian McMurray Providing what it says is an in-depth look at new technologies and integrations that allow video providers to quickly and economically create video workflows onpremises or in the cloud, AWS Elemental is delivering a range of demonstrations across the full workflow gamut. “The rate of change in the video industry continues to

accelerate as advancements in streaming formats, video quality and artificial intelligence put remarkable new tools in place to enhance viewing experiences while reducing operational costs,” said Keith Wymbs, chief marketing officer, AWS Elemental. “To keep pace, video providers must expand their capabilities by making the move to cloud-based infrastructure and preparing for new and emerging media standards, such as the Common Media Application Format.”

The demonstration, featuring Amazon EC2 Spot and Thinkbox Deadline 10, shows how, with a few clicks, users can launch a powerful render farm using AWS instances with GPU or CPU processing power and Thinkbox’s render management software. Flexible infrastructure and usage-based licensing are said to let users maximise rendering resources and software investments. AWS Elemental is also showing what it can do in terms of machine learning

The long view Mobile Viewpoint

The AVATUS IP-based mixing console with multi-touch screens is making its IBC debut. Along with a more contemporary look and feel, AVATUS differs from previous Stage Tec consoles in three ways, said Stage Tec. First, it offers an IP-based connection to the audio processing. Second, AVATUS 21 is equipped with 21-inch multi-touch screens for display and control functions. The third difference is an enhanced focus on user-friendly operation. Stage Tec employs workfloworiented operation in AVATUS, in

Remote production specialist Mobile Viewpoint may have unveiled some of its latest products at IBC2017, but CEO Michel Bais expressed some frustration with the fact that much of the company’s time is spent on integration projects because many broadcasters still rely on legacy equipment for their remote production needs. “We are in IP,” he said. “A lot of broadcasters still have their old equipment. Our R&D department spends more time on integration projects than on new features!” There are signs that things are beginning to change as broadcasters start to spend more money on upgrading their equipment. And Bais

remains enthusiastic about the future of his company’s products, which encompass portable and fixed encoding devices to enable fast and reliable video contribution, in combination with its LinkMatrix webplatform. He pointed to the benefits that 5G mobile technology will bring, such as enabling the production of much smaller boxes at much lower costs. As an example, he pointed to the WMT NEO, which is the smallest member of the Link family providing HD SDI, H.265/HEVC encoding and four integrated modems. Bais said this product currently costs €4,500, but in around 2019, when 5G devices are expected to become available, the price could be less than half this amount and the box half the size. 14.F21

Vive: “VR is a long play, invest in it now and broadcasters can be part of its future” OUTLINED

By Ann-Marie Corvin The president of VR app store Viveport has urged broadcasters to make an investment in VR or risk missing out on an ecosystem that has the potential to offer audiences a huge array of experiences. Setting out his pitch to the broadcast industry during the Saturday afternoon keynote, ‘What’s happening in VR?’ Rikard Steiber – who runs the app store built by high-end VR platform HTC Vive – said that the first steps broadcasters needed to take was to try it for themselves. “It’s such an experiential medium, you can’t intellectualise it. You have to take the red pill and just run with it,” he said.

The next step, according to Steiber, was for content brands to partner with Vive and make VR a reality for the industry. As a case in point he cited Vive’s partnership with CBS Digital on the second series of its Netflix show, Stranger Things. The show had experimented with 3600 video before, but ahead of the second season, the shows producers invested in a high-end experience on Vive, with monsters slowly creeping towards the viewer in the dark. According to Steiber, Viveport – which is often described as ‘Netflix for VR’ – was the perfect platform for content creators to experiment with new content. “It’s a great way for developers and the

media industry to make money and for consumers to discover content,” he said. “We have 20,000 developers registered and many of these have now decided to exclusively focus on making content for us.” Steiber added that new AR and VR experiences were just around the corner as the firm worked on developing a new ecosystem. He told IBC Conference delegates to expect ‘full presence VR’, which puts trackers on wireless shooters for a more authentic experience. Haptic suits will also allow users to experience physical feelings so they can feel a physical shot from an arrow and experience different temperatures by simulating hot and cold.

New UHD OB to cover German elections Broadcast Solutions By David Fox Studio Berlin is moving to Ultra HD with a new 4K/UHD Streamline OB truck built by Broadcast Solutions, which will cover the German federal elections this month as its first production. The OB, Ü9, which is being shown in the outside exhibit area, is a Streamline S16, and brings the total of Streamline OBs Broadcast Solutions has built to more than 40, which it claims makes it “the most successful OB van series in the world”. The Streamline approach “offers maximum flexibility in

connection with technology and production workflows,” explained Studio Berlin MD Nick Zimmermann. “The combination of cutting-edge system integration and fieldproven overall concepts, applied by Broadcast Solutions, all come together in a production tool that perfectly serves our purposes.

The Ü9 will be a decisive first step in our 4K/UHD strategy – with more steps to follow.” Ü9 offers up to 20 workplaces and can work with up to 19 HD or Ultra HD cameras. Studio Berlin chose Grass Valley’s LDX 86N native UHD cameras, together with a Karrera 5M/E (132x68) switcher. For video processing it uses Riedel’s MediorNet as a decentralised signal routing and communications backbone, with MetroN Core routers plus MicroN standard and multiviewer systems. Other equipment includes: Sony, AG Neovo, Postium and TV-Logic monitors; and EVS XT3/XT4 slomo servers. 0.E02

By Heather McLean Nokia Technologies is demonstrating the power of its VR 3600 OZO filmmaking platform that now has the tools needed by broadcasters to create VR content, both recorded and live, for an end-to-end 3600 experience. At IBC last year, Nokia brought the OZO camera along to introduce the concept

73 IBC D4 2017 v4 Final.indd 1

to broadcasters. This year, however, “there has been a tremendous amount of progress”, according to the company’s head of global sales for VR capture, Stuart English. He said: “This year with OZO Live [a scalable 3D 3600 live stream solution] we have the complete system. We have now got proof of concept from UEFA, which has used the technology, and many other projects that have and are being used to experiment and evaluate OZO. There is now

Steiber also highlighted the creative steps that third-party developers had taken, by showing a demo of an ‘A-HA’ app. It takes the famous 1980s pop promo featuring Norwegian rock band A-ha in which a comic

strip character comes to life, and allows users to transpose it into their own backgrounds. “If VR is turning imagination into reality then AR is about doing the opposite, turning your reality into imagination,” he said.

Ember+ links Tallyman to all Jünger products TSL Products and Jünger Audio By Heather McLean TSL Products has got on board with the Ember+ protocol to enable operators to access all Jünger Audio products, following demand for the capability from Jünger customers in Asia. At IBC the companies announced that TSL Products has used the Ember+ protocol to expose Jünger Audio devices to the TallyMan Advanced Broadcast Control system. TSL Product’s Daniel Bailey, product manager, stated: “Operators are able to access Jünger devices via their web

We are giving operators small subsets of control; what they actually need to do their role. “The key is being able to access what they need. They can configure systems themselves, build the surface they really want and centralise resources.” 10.B41/10.A49

Why young viewers could be gone for good OUTLINED

By David Wood One commonly held industry view is that while younger viewers may watch large amounts of mobile video on platforms such as YouTube, they will revert back to the traditional viewing patterns, consuming larger amounts of linear TV, when they get older. That’s not going to happen, said Antonio Carvalho VP, product, content & usage analytics at Liberty Global UK, speaking at an IBC Conference session examining changes in viewing patterns [16 September]. “There is an argument about lifestage – that there is a big difference in viewing habits before you have a family and after. But there’s already

enough evidence out there to know that’s not the case – they don’t go back.” Sarah Rose, director of consumer insight at UK broadcaster C4, said: “It’s the hardest thing because we just don’t know. Will viewing behaviour revert when people’s lives change? It’s the thing we are least complacent about. Generation Z don’t grow up with linear brands, so we can’t take it for granted that they will come back.” New online channels like YouTube TV and Facebook’s Watch, which are built around features such as personalisation and recommendation, will encourage new viewing patterns, said Rose. “As broadcasters, we have to pay

Integration of Netflix Photon Analyzer Venera Technologies By Carolyn Giardina Venera has integrated the Netflix Photon Analyzer with its file-based QC system Pulsar, in order to allow Netflix content providers to verify their IMF packages against Netflix’s specifications and alongside the quality parameters already available within Pulsar. According to Venera, the IMF packages that currently need to be delivered to Netflix are validated against Photon during the content upload process as a mandatory step. However, this is done as a last step when all the work on the content has already

been completed. Spotting issues at this stage requires content providers to rectify the errors, repackage the content, and resubmit for another compliance check with Photon, the company explained. Therefore, for organisations that are already using Pulsar to validate their content in the earlier stages of their workflow, this integration is developed to also let them detect the Photon compliance issues much earlier. At IBC, Venera is additionally showcasing its Quasar cloud-based QC system, available as a SaaS. 7.G43

attention to these trends and offer audiences content how they want it, otherwise we will become old media.” “Personalisation and recommendation is an important feature – it helps people navigate content in a confusing world. We have to take our curation skills and adapt them to what audiences want to do if we are to remain relevant.” Rose predicted that Facebook’s entry into the TV market with Watch would have a big impact on the TV market. “Particularly if it gets into proper monetised video. Recent research showed that every week 80 per cent of millennials engage with Facebook in some way.” Michel van der Voort, MD Screenforce Netherlands,

The future is uncertain as to how viewing patterns will change as millennials get older

reported that the growth of services such as YouTube and Netflix are the biggest concern for Dutch broadcasters. “We have lost one-third of young viewers in the last two-tothree years. We are facing difficult times at this moment because those viewers are

hard to get – because we will have more platforms on our TV sets perhaps it’s time for local broadcasters to put content together in one place.” Accurate figures on viewing new platforms was also a big challenge facing the industry, said Rose.

Four EYEs makes spectacle out of VR Indiecam By David Fox The new nakedEYE s4 is an 8K VR camera system that delivers 6K after stitching and packs four camera modules into a small package. Each sensor has a global shutter, and are frame-synchronised, recording to 12-bit CinemaDNG Raw. The total bandwidth is 1.4Gbps, delivered via IP, and Indiecam is working on real-time stitching. The nakedEYE s4 will be available for rent in about a month, and for sale later this year. It also now has a special version of nakedEYE that can do live streaming, which

benefits from the fact that “our parallax is really low”, explained Indiecam CEO, Raphael Barth. Also launched at IBC is the indieDICE 4K, a 2/3-inch 12G-SDI POV camera for broadcast and film production. The all-in-one unit can be fitted with a wide variety of lenses, and the single 12G-SDI cable delivers 4K 50/60p, while an additional output allows simultaneous 12G Raw recording for cinematic post processing. It is larger than the tiny HD indieDICE, but Barth hopes to have smaller versions in 4K soon (they just won’t share the future potential of this 4K camera). There will also be a global shutter version. 12.G53
