TDF using broadcast to push magazines and VOD, to tablets (Expway inside!)

TDF using broadcast to push magazines and VOD, to tablets (Expway inside!) | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

TDF wants to help the content distributors by delivering their contents in a more effective way, using push over broadcast. 


The TDF group will leverage broadcast technology to deliver content to smartphones and tablets. 


[curnote: TDF is the largest broadcast network operator in Europe with 11.000 sites]


There is not a week without a telecom operator highlighting the explosion of mobile internet traffic, directly due to the boom of smartphones and tablets.


TDF has a solution in hand, faced with this mobile network congestion. It plans to make use of its broadcast networks to help the media disseminate their content to mobile devices, tablets and smartphones. “Today, when a user looks at a magazine or newspaper on his touchscreen mobile, loading time is generally considered too long, and often he or she does not have the patience to wait until the end," says Vincent Grivet, Director of broadcasting development in TDF.


The group proposes to use the broadcast network, and at night, they plan to push media and audiovisual contents such as video on demand and catch-up TV services to the terminals. “In the morning, the user will find his newsletter or programs stored directly in his smartphone or tablet. The content is immediately available. There is no need to wait for the downloading time”, he continued. The Content providers, broadcasters and publishers, are monitoring the project with interest: "We discuss a lot with the newspaper publishers who are very active on the mobile space but often find that the customer experience is not good enough.” TDF does not work alone on this project called B2M (Mobile Multimedia Broadcast), but has teamed up with six French industrial partners: French manufacturer Archos, Airweb (mobile services and applications), DiBcom (integrated circuits), Expway (Push VOD and network specialist) Immanens (electronic media) and the “Institut Télécom”.


Cost of broadcast.


This prototype will be tested commercially after the summer 2012.The consortium has received, from the Framework of ‘The Grand Emprunt’, a government subsidy of about one third of the project, estimated at 3 million euros. Internationally, a similar system was developed in Japan by NTT DoCoMo.


Is it meddling in the backyard of telecom operators? a declaration of war? "We are not antagonistic, but we are complementary with mobile Internet networks. If we are looking at things from this angle, we are in for selling in wholesale capacity. Operators cannot be indifferent to this solution that will significantly reduce their traffic load”. Vincent Grivet explains.


TDF requires the operators to be involved in the project, estimating that it can help them manage their costs in response to massive traffic.


Is this a return of personal mobile television (TMP), which has remained on deaf ears? "No, it's very diferent. This is a different use of television, with time flow shift. In addition, the service provided is multimedia at large and not limited to television, " says Vincent Grivet.


Financially, the solution proposed by TDF is an expense for publishers. Today, they are paying almost nothing for transmission to mobile Internet networks. Consequently the resolution TDF will inevitably be more expensive, even though the economic model has not yet been conclusive. But TDF bets that one day, the price of transmission on mobile Internet networks will increase and that publishers will find their interest in its solution.

LTE Broadcast is potentially a game changer

LTE Broadcast is potentially a game changer | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it
One of the drivers for thinking about LTE Broadcast – or, to use its technical name, eMBMS (evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service) – is the increasing video usage on the networks.
In 2013 video accounted for about 40% of all mobile data traffic, but that will rise to somewhere between 66% and 70% by the year 2017. Video consumption is growing. And the way a video would normally be delivered at the moment, if you’re watching a YouTube video for example, is you’re going to be effectively seizing a dedicated circuit to deliver that piece of content.

Mobile video traffic to grow seventeen-fold

Mobile video traffic to grow seventeen-fold | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it
Total mobile video traffic in the next six years will be around 17 times that of last six years, according to the latest Ericsson mobility report. 

The global research, published ahead of Mobile World Congress next week, claims that two-thirds of app data traffic over mobile networks comes from just five of the most popular apps in each country studied, with video streaming and social networking dominating.

While Facebook was found to be the number one app in each country studied, mobile video “dominates traffic growth”, with Ericsson forecasting it to grow by around 45% annually through to 2020 when it will account for around 55% of all mobile data traffic.

“Prominent factors driving this rapid growth include increased number of video-enabled devices, larger screens, and better picture quality. Another prominent driver is that video is becoming an increasing part of online content, such as news, adverts, and social media. Video is increasingly shared via popular social sites, such as Twitter,” said Ericsson.

The research claims that accumulated mobile data traffic for video was 25 ExaBytes during 2009-2014 and will rise to 440 ExaBytes for 2015-2020. Total mobile data traffic will climb from 70 ExaBytes to 860 ExaBytes over the same period of time.

Breaking down mobile traffic volume in a few key markets, Ercisson said that in the US in December Facebook accounted for 16% of mobile traffic, followed by YouTube at 15% and Netflix at 12%. In Spain the most popular apps were Facebook and Instagram with 20% and 13% of traffic respectively.

The Mobility Report claims that 800 million smartphone subscriptions were added worldwide for full year 2014, taking the total number to 2.7 billion. This was up 40% from a total of 1.9 billion smartphone subscriptions in 2013.

The study also noted a decline in the numbers of people watching broadcast TV, at the same time that streaming services gain more traction.

“This year for the first time more people will watch streamed on demand video than broadcast TV over a weekly period in those markets. Drivers for this change include the advent of 4G technology, the growth in smartphone and tablet usage, and a shift in consumer behaviour towards easy-to-use, on-demand services that offer cross-platform access to content,” said Ericsson.

Niners’ home opener tops Super Bowl for Wi-Fi data traffic with 3.3 Terabytes | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

The first regular-season home game for the San Francisco 49ers in their new home, Levi’s Stadium, produced more Wi-Fi traffic and far more actual fan-to-network connections than the most-recent Super Bowl, according to statistics from the Niners’ tech team.


Dan Williams, vice president of technology for the 49ers, said the Levi’s Stadium Wi-Fi network carried 3.3 Terabytes of data during Sunday night’s game between the Niners and the Chicago Bears, topping the 3.2 TB mark reported from Super Bowl XLVIII in February. According to Williams, out of the 70,799 that filled Levi’s Stadium Sunday, more than 30,000 fans connected to the Wi-Fi network at some point, with peak usage of 19,000 fans all connecting at one time occurring just before the 5:30 p.m. local time kickoff. According to the Super Bowl stats, the peak number of fans on Wi-Fi at that game at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey was 13,500.

E//: More people to watch streamed video than broadcast TV this year

E//: More people to watch streamed video than broadcast TV this year | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it
In 2015 more people will watch streamed on-demand video on a weekly basis than broadcast TV, according to research by Ericsson. 

Discussing the findings of its recent ConsumerLab ’10 Hot Consumer Trends for 2015’ report, Michael Björn, head of research at Ericsson ConsumerLab, said that at the overall hours we spend watching streamed video will also eventually exceed the hours spent watching broadcast TV.

“At the current pace of change, maybe that will happen around 2020,” said Björn. “Streaming is overtaking broadcast for the simple reason that consumers see more value in something that is delivered when they want to watch it rather than when the clock hits a certain hour. Simultaneously we are creatures of habit, so although the value of getting something on demand is obvious, the change happens gradually.”

Ericsson’s ConsumerLab survey of 23 countries found that more than three-quarters of consumers browse the internet and half use social media every day.

Last year, the research found that streaming overtook broadcast TV in terms of popularity among those aged 16-45, with 80% in this age group watching streamed video “several times a week or more”.

Some 77% of the total sample population watched broadcast content, compared to 75% who favoured streaming services, but Ericsson said this will change during 2015. “The year will be historic, as we will watch streamed content more often than broadcast TV,” said the report.

EE to Trial 400 Mbit/s 4G, eMBMS at Wembley

EE to Trial 400 Mbit/s 4G, eMBMS at Wembley | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it
Providing video content to customers could be done far more efficiently with broadcasting technology than using 4G unicast streaming, which tends to gobble up capacity and disrupt services in busy cells. That could make eMBMS especially useful at major venues used for concerts and sports events.

Although previous mobile broadcasting technologies have vanished without a trace, the prospects for eMBMS look much brighter.

For one thing, it can be integrated with the existing 4G network and does not require dedicated spectrum, according to Peter Carson, a senior director of marketing with Qualcomm, which is collaborating with EE on carrier aggregation and eMBMS.

It also works in a more dynamic fashion than its doomed predecessors, which would send broadcast signals even if customers were not watching the content.

As with higher-speed 4G services, one of the main issues right now is a lack of eMBMS handsets, but a growing number of operators globally appear to be getting behind the technology.

Over-the-air software coming soon to your next car

Over-the-air software coming soon to your next car | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it
Using a capability that is unique in the auto industry, Elon Musk last week tweeted that over-the-air (OTA) software upgrades would soon come to its P85D Model S sedans as the cars sat in garages and driveways around the world.

While Tesla Motor's powertrain upgrade via OTA software may be a first, it's a feature that most automakers are hoping to adopt because it will improve customer satisfaction and slash costs.

In fact, consumers soon may consider it outrageous that they must either download to a thumb drive or travel to a dealership to have their vehicle's software updated. Imagine having to go to a retailer to upgrade an application on your smartphone or tablet.

Like a smartphone, the car is quickly becoming a consumer electronic mobile device - the largest one. And OTA upgrades will be standard.
