Content Insider #536 - Open Access


It's Tough to Keep the Internet a Borderless Service
Content Insider #536 - Open Access
We live on the Internet -- communicating with people around the globe, researching stuff for articles, skimming over the free video stuff the kids post on YouTube and Facebook, streaming content to the big screen in the family room. We even stream subscription shows from Netflix and Amazon Plus as well as transaction documentaries from Vimeo. It's great to catch up on content like this even though our service provider doesn't exactly let us watch 4K in 4K but rather something that is a little smaller that travels more easily OTT. Had to explain to the kids that unlimited data plans from our "favorite" carrier is only their version of unlimited not what you or I call unlimited. Of course it's always nice to know that "they" are keeping track of what you're watching/doing on the Internet...for our own good. Read More

As computers displaced pen and paper, basic 3D rendering became a matter of course, expected by clients as part of the design package. Read More

Content Insider #534 - IBC M&E Showtime
People don't really need an excuse to go to Amsterdam but IBC gives everyone who is anyone a solid reason to be there in a few weeks. This time the show looks more exciting because there is so darn much going on in the industry. VR showing it's real. OTT showing the way for a new way to watch content anywhere, anytime. 4K/HDR and 8K getting real real. Service firms of every shape, size setting out to tell the world they are the way of tomorrow. Executives will be there to do deals and learn. Following close behind will be publicists hungry to grab anyone with a media badge and offer them up to the boss. No the pro PR people won't do that because well they know these folks. Unfortunately it's the same at every show! Read More

The pipe guys thinks all the money is being raked in by the content folks. The distributors know the content folks are making the big bucks. The content people know they're being taken to the cleaners by the pipe guys and distributors It's big bundles, skinny bundles; huge bundles, diddly bundles and no bundles. It's all the content you can stream to constriction in the pipes. The consumer isn't too sure other than they're having a horrible time finding the content they want.

Content Insider #532 - Content Delivery
There's more and better content available today than you can possibly view in a lifetime thanks to great work indie filmmakers are doing. The key is getting the right titles to come to your attention to invest your time in viewing. You could let the network tell you what they think is best for you but that kinda sucks. No it's more fun, more enlightening to find the best stuff off the beaten path like at Vimeo. The key will be new technology that enables richer content to get to your screen regardless of where you're watching it. At IBC we'll hear the promises and at SMPTE we'll hear about the progress that has been made. Hint - It's all good and getting better! Read More
