NASCAR Will Live-Stream In-Car Cameras on Twitter During the 2017 Playoffs

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 16:35:22 -0400

In a first for the sport, NASCAR plans to live-stream camera feeds from inside selected cars on Twitter during the 10 upcoming Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs races beginning next month.
 
Much like some of its other live sports content, this feed will be made available for free to both logged-in and logged-out Twitter users in the U.S. via NASCAR’s official Twitter handle.
 
Said Twitter COO Anthony Noto, “NASCAR continues to innovate on Twitter, a place where their passionate fans discuss what’s happening before, during and, after every race. Our new collaboration will offer NASCAR fans a unique live-stream perspective for the 2017 playoffs alongside the real-time Twitter conversation.”
 
The feeds will also be accessible via the NBC Sports app; NASCAR Drive, the organization’s in-car digital streaming platform; and the NASCAR Mobile app.
 
The efforts will begin with the first playoff race at Chicagoland on Sept. 17.

Bexel Joins Forces With explore.org To Stream Nature Footage

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 17:20:11 -0400

Bexel, an NEP Broadcast Services Company, has joined forces with philanthropic media organization explore.org to stream never-before-seen live video and audio from remote and exotic locations.
 
Founded by Charles Annenberg Weingarten, director and vice president of the Annenberg Foundation, explore.org has created a large collection of live nature cameras in the world. Operated remotely by volunteers, these cameras document, broadcast, and champion the work of explore.org’s nonprofit partners, many of which are global leaders in animal and environmental conservation.
 
Twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, and on four continents, explore.org streams moments from the wild as they happen, from bald eagles nesting in California’s Channel Islands to giant pandas foraging for bamboo in Gengda, Sichuan, China. Home to over 300 original films, live-recorded and catalogued video, a photo library, and over 3 million user-generated photographs, explore.org draws millions of viewers every month.
 
“In the past couple of years, we’ve been on a fast track to increase the number of remote locations and populate the globe with live nature cams,” says Jonathan Silvio, head of Online Services at explore.org. “When we discovered Bexel, we knew we’d found a partner to help us realize this vision.”
 
After a successful first deployment in northern Manitoba, where Bexel’s specialty low-light-optimized camera system captured stunning footage of the aurora borealis at night, Bexel has deployed custom-designed systems at nine other explore.org sites, with another 25 planned for 2017.

Facebook Rolls Out Watch, Its New Platform for Original Video Programming

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 17:31:47 -0400

On Thursday, Facebook will debut its new platform for original video programming: Watch. Serving as an update to the Video tab, Watch is designed to better package the social media giant’s various catalog of original programming being created by its partners.
 
Watch, which will be available on mobile, desktop, and in Facebook’s TV apps, is designed to serve as a personalized platform for users to watch, comment on, and share shows.
 
If it wasn’t already official before, it certainly is now: Facebook has positioned itself as a competitor to platforms like YouTube, Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix, in addition to television itself.
 
Partners are now encouraged to develop even more programming specifically for their Facebook channels. According to a report from TechCrunch, partners will earn 55% of ad break revenue while Facebook keeps 45%.
 
“We think Watch will be home to a wide range of shows, from reality to comedy to live sports,” Facebook’s Director of Product Daniel Danker said in a blog post. “We’re excited to see how creators and publishers use shows to connect with their fans and community.
 
Watch will be available to a limited group in the U.S. on Thursday so not everyone will see it in their app. The plan to slowly roll it out to more and more users over time.

Foxtel, Irdeto Convict Sydney Man for Unauthorized Access to Foxtel Services

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 17:18:43 -0400

Foxtel has welcomed the sentencing of a Sydney man for his role in the selling of unauthorized access to Foxtel services. Haidar Majid Salam Al Baghdadi, 33 years old, was convicted of criminal offences relating to charges of operating an illegal network that allowed more than 8,000 people across Australia to access Foxtel subscription television broadcasts for free. A Sydney court has sentenced Al Baghdadi to serve an 18-month suspended jail term for carrying out the offenses.
 
The conviction and sentencing are the result of on-going joint antipiracy investigations involving the Australian Federal Police (AFP), Foxtel investigators, and Irdeto. The three organizations uncovered an organized criminal network responsible for committing a wide-range of intellectual property theft of Foxtel services.
 
“Foxtel welcomes today’s court ruling and hopes it sends a strong signal that this type of activity is illegal,” says Foxtel CEO Peter Tonagh. “Foxtel takes intellectual property theft very seriously as it severely undermines the creative industry, including every business and individual that works so hard to deliver us the movies, sport, drama and entertainment we love. Foxtel conducts ongoing investigations into the theft of Foxtel programming and we are proud to work so closely with the AFP and our partners at Irdeto to ensure the full force of the law is applied to protect our content.”
