NABEF To Honor Jon Bon Jovi

Wed, 24 May 2017 17:05:56 -0400

Renowned musician and philanthropist Jon Bon Jovi will receive the 2017 Service to America Leadership Award from the NAB Education Foundation (NABEF) for his ongoing efforts to combat poverty and homelessness. Mr. Bon Jovi, whose music and public service signify the spirit of America and the principles that define the nation, will receive the honor at NABEF’s Celebration of Service to America Awards on June 20 in Washington, D.C.
 
Mr. Bon Jovi is also chairman of the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering positive change and helping the lives of those in need “one soul at a time.” Specifically, the foundation supports programs and partnerships targeted at breaking the cycle of poverty and homelessness in the United States. To date, the Soul Foundation has provided grants to nonprofit organizations across the nation working to create affordable housing for thousands of low-income individuals and families.
 
“Jon Bon Jovi has entertained audiences for decades and earned world-wide fame as an artist and performer,” said NABEF President Marcellus Alexander. “Despite his fame, Jon has never lost sight of community. His generous support of programs that address hunger and homelessness exemplifies the Leadership Award for which we will honor him.”
 
The National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to reinforcing the future of broadcasting through a commitment to education and to advancing excellence in the diversity and community service efforts of our industry. Learn more at www.nabef.org.

NBCU’s Olympic Channel Will Officially Launch on July 15; Universal HD To Cease Operations

Mon, 22 May 2017 16:51:59 -0400

The new Olympic Channel – will officially launch on July 15, 2017, Comcast announced via its Website. On that same day, Universal HD will be ceasing operations. The “Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA” HD channel will be available on Comcast’s Digital Preferred package in every market that currently carries Universal HD (Comcast will not launch an SD version of the channel). AT&T and DIRECTV will also carry the channel upon launch. Announced in December, the new channel is a combined effort between NBCU, the IOC, and the USOC to connect fans to the Olympic Movement year round.
 
The Olympic Channel launched as a worldwide digital platform following the Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games Rio 2016, but the July 15 launch will mark the creation of a 24/7 linear cable network dedicated entirely to the Olympic Movement. NBC Olympics, the IOC, and the USOC will collaborate to produce and distribute Olympic sports and Olympic-themed programming on a year-round basis between the Games. The collaborative programming will emphasize live events from a broad portfolio of summer and winter Olympic sports. It will also include Olympic-themed original content produced by all three parties, such as original programmes produced by filmmakers from around the world commissioned by the global Olympic Channel; rich archival footage from the IOC and NBCU’s library of Olympic features and documentaries; and original Team USA programming contributed by the USOC.
 
Along with the Channel, the partnership also brings additional coverage of Olympic sports programmes that will appear exclusively on other NBCU platforms – including NBC, NBCSN and NBC Sports Digital outlets. The first such coverage begins this Saturday, 17 December, with the Team USA Winter Champions Series.

MLB To Live-Stream 20 Games on Facebook This Season

Fri, 19 May 2017 17:13:02 -0400

Major League Baseball will stream 20 games this season as part of a deal announced by MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred following the league’s quarterly owners meetings today. A game streamed each Friday night for the remainder of the season will be accessible to everyone on Facebook in the U.S. (with no blackouts) via the official MLB Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/mlb). The Facebook stream will be a feed produced by the participating team’s local broadcast-rights holder. The first of 20 game broadcasts on Facebook will begin tomorrow at a Colorado Rockies-Cincinnati Reds matchup (7:10 p.m. ET), with additional games to be announced at a later date. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
 
This marks MLB’s latest live-streaming effort with Facebook. In 2011, before the introduction of Facebook Live, MLB.com streamed selected spring-training games live on Facebook (by embedding the MLB.TV video player into the Facebook Pages of the participating teams).
 
MLB routinely goes live for Box Break, an interactive show in which a full box of baseball cards is opened live on Facebook. MLB also uses Facebook Live to bring fans behind the scenes, including Toronto Blue Jays slugger Josh Donaldson’s off-season workouts, batting practice on Opening Day, and spring training when Sean Casey and Robert Flores answered questions from fans at Cubs camp.
 
“Probably the most important single announcement [from the owners meetings] is, we’ve done an agreement with Facebook,” Manfred said at a press conference today. “It’s really important for us in terms of experimenting with a new partner in this area. We are really excited about this new partnership.”

SES, LG To Demo 4K High Frame Rate Technology at 10th Annual SES Industry Days

Tue, 16 May 2017 17:15:54 -0400

SES opens its annual Industry Days conference this week. The event, rebranded into “iD17” and taking place on May 16 and 17 at Luxembourg Congress, is focusing on the theme “Innovating Video Delivery” for its tenth edition. Among the highlights at Industry Days will be a demonstration by SES and LG Electronics (LG) of OLED TV’s 4K High Frame Rate (HFR) broadcast.
 
This year’s conference gathers 290 delegates from the entire video value chain between satellite and end-consumer – broadcasters, manufacturers, software developers and other suppliers – to exchange ideas and views about innovative technologies and developments in satellite transmission and reception. Delegates will have the opportunity to enjoy more than 25 demonstrations, ranging from Ultra HD and Virtual Reality to new antennas and SAT>IP technologies.
 
“Celebrating the tenth edition of the Industry Days makes the event quite special and we are very excited to reach this landmark,” says Thomas Wrede, VP New Technology & Standards at SES. “For ten years in a row, SES has gathered representatives of the entire ecosystem to push new TV technologies forward. This certainly reaffirms SES’s position as a leader in the video market and highlights our commitment to innovative technologies that can deliver the best viewing experience to the end consumer.”
