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.

Streaming Video Alliance Launches

Streaming Video Alliance Launches | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

A group of 17 service providers, content companies and tech vendors has formed the Streaming Video Alliance, aimed at formulating industry-wide standards and establishing best practices for high-scale Internet video services.


Notably, Netflix and YouTube — which represent the two biggest sources of Internet bandwidth usage — are not members of the group. Both companies have invested heavily in their own video-distribution infrastructure, which means they wouldn’t be interested in switching gears to adopt a new architecture defined by an external consortium.

Verizon says that it is ready to deliver LTE Multicast and is simply waiting for the compatible devices to become available in volume. Verizon is also working on the revenue models for the 4G video service.


I think [the 4G Mobile TV service] will be a year away," said Verizon WirelessCFO Fran Shammo on the operator's third-quarter earnings call Tuesday morning. Verizon first demonstrated the video capability in New York City around the Super Bowl with the NFL. He expects that devices need to arrive and content providers to see potential customers before the mobile TV service takes off.

Expway Corp., the newly established US entity, serves as the central base for the company’s operations throughout the country. It is also the main hub for the company’s worldwide sales and marketing efforts.
Mountain View, CA, was a natural choice for us: It is a perfect location to support our existing North American customers, such as Verizon and their trials during the Super Bowl and Indy 500, and to carry out IODTs with Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent, their Radio Access Network vendors.
Also being at the Silicon Valley allows us to be close to the new-tech development wave and launch our new line of products that will leverage eMBMS in an unprecedented way.


We look forward to talking with meeting you—for example, at CTIA, IBC, CES, and NAB!

Evidence of Mobile Video's Ascendance Is Everywhere - Videonuze | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

Mobile video may be the hottest trend in video today, with evidence of its ascendance seemingly everywhere. As just one data point, last week's Q3 2014 Global Video Index from Ooyala pegged mobile video plays at 30% of all online video plays. That was up from 20% share in Q2 '14, more than double mobile video's 14% share from one year earlier in Q3 '13 and quintuple the 6% share from Q3 '12.

Qualcomm Hopes to Attract Developers With LTE Broadcast Proprietary SDKs

Qualcomm Hopes to Attract Developers With LTE Broadcast Proprietary SDKs | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

One of the biggest challenges mobile operators face is handling the growing amount of video traffic in their networks. One potential savior is multicast technology LTE broadcast, which delivers content such as TV broadcasts to multiple people at once instead of sending a separate stream to each user. The result is less strain on the network, which is especially good in places such as sports arenas.


Qualcomm's LTE Broadcast SDK has been designed for Snapdragon-based devices.
