SubtitleNEXT allows for remote online study and work Posted: 13/05/2020
SubtitleNEXT allows for remote online study and work

When it was announced that colleges and universities would have to close due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Hellenic American College in Athens was in an immediate position to be able to transfer onsite courses to synchronous online sessions.

With the help of the SubtitleNEXT platform, chosen for the Masters in Translation (MAT) Program and Audio-visual Translation Lab, students are currently able to continue working on SubtitleNEXT remotely to complete their courses without disruption.

SubtitleNEXT is a flexible subtitling timed-text system that can run on different types of hardware. With the cooperation of the SubtitleNEXT team, the educational set-up was quickly adapted for remote working and virtual study. The powerful features in SubtitleNEXT and the collective team spirit have allowed students to continue their learning, and it will enable them to progress to the next stage of their educational journey.

Hellenic American College in Athens is a dynamic institution with lecturers who had already embraced and adopted SubtitleNEXT last year for its MAT program, arming a future generation with knowledge of how to effectively localize content for every major studio, OTT platform, and broadcast company to meet global consumer demand. The MAT is one of 14 academic degree programs of the US-accredited Hellenic American University which the College offers in Greece. Students in the MAT program acquire the credentials to begin a career in translation, audio-visual translation and editing.

Pixel Power software enhancements bring real-world efficiencies in integration and amp; implementation Posted: 16/03/2020
Pixel Power software enhancements bring real-world efficiencies in integration and amp; implementation

To underline its strengths in moving users from legacy architectures to software-centric, fully virtualized solutions for multi-platform playout and graphics production, Pixel Power is launching major new versions of its core software technologies: Gallium Workflow Orchestration and StreamMaster Media Processing. Gallium 3.0 and StreamMaster 2.0 each add significant enhancements covering usability, operational efficiency and connectivity through widely recognised standards.

Through its functional-block architecture, the Gallium workflow orchestration platform allows system architects to build carefully tailored solutions to meet precise customer workflow requirements. Version 3.0 adds more than 50 enhancements with significant new functionality and usability improvements. That includes both live and file-based open and closed subtitling; audio watermarking; live, scheduled and delayed recording and scripted configurable triggering of external systems. In line with Pixel Power’s policy of supporting open systems in a flexible way, these triggers can use REST, UDP and XML based integrations.

Pixel Power’s media processing platform, StreamMaster, also sees a significant new version which adds capabilities that are driven by real-world requirements. StreamMaster 2.0 adds UHD support; uncompressed I/O over SMPTE ST-2110; OP47 and SMPTE 2031 subtitle insertion and flexible recording of the main output, input sources or clean feeds including playback whilst recording. As well as scalable multi-channel master control playout, Gallium and StreamMaster can readily be configured to produce fast turnaround live content for VOD distribution, for example for catch-up and time-delayed channels, while retaining the flexibility to change elements of the output such as advertising.

BT Takes Action to Combat TV Broadcasting Piracy

BT is stepping up its efforts to combat the illegal piracy of premium subscription-based content through a new partnership with leading video infrastructure company, ATEME. BT is using the company’s sophisticated encryption techniques to protect satellite uplinked content in the most secure way possible, and will be offering this technology to its media and broadcast customers around the world to help reduce the number of illegal streams.

Julien Mandel, Contribution Segment Manager ATEME said: "With BISS-CA inscription integrated in to our solutions and provided as a simple software upgrade, BT can now be even more confident that the content it is transporting for their global media and broadcast customers is well-protected. We are pleased to know that BT is using the strongest tool to provide to its clients a secure delivery’’.

Fincons Group to present innovative platform to accelerate Next Gen TV roll-out at CES 2020

Fincons Group, a leading IT business consultancy, will be presenting its new Smart Digital Platform (SDP) designed to accelerate Next Gen TV roll-out for media and broadcast businesses at CES this January.

The SDP introduces a revolutionary publishing tool that redefines application development as it enables automatic generation of applications, thus accelerating Hybrid TV and OTT service delivery. The framework distributes functionalities in logical “SMART” modules that form the basis for Hybrid TV solutions. It enables Broadcaster Apps to have advanced monetization models through Addressable Advertising, provides contextual information through a Now/Next and Channel dashboard and encourages greater viewer engagement via an Electronic Program Guide (EPG), video on demand sections and catch-up content. Fincons’ SDP uniquely also features full automation of the Hybrid TV asset preparation chain. It is the first platform that is entirely compatible with both European HbbTV and new US ATSC 3.0 standards, a feature that derives from the company’s unique pioneering role in the development of both standards.

At CES broadcasters will be able to see the platform in action in deployed, live applications that leverage the TV personalization potential of AI.
