10.09.2015 | Press Release   Telstra today announced the rebrand of recently acquired business, Globecast Australia, to Telstra Broadcast Services, unveiling the new brand at the International Broadcasting Conference (IBC) in Amsterdam. The move cements Telstra’s commitment to providing deeper capabilities in media services for customers in the broadcasting industry. Telstra Broadcast Services offers its global customer base media delivery over satellite platforms, including direct to home satellite transmission and IPTV managed services; IP streaming and encoding; satellite monitoring and disaster recovery. It has also developed live point-of-view miniature camera technology which is used extensively at sporting events through its Globecam business. Martijn Blanken, Group Managing Director, Telstra Global Enterprise and Services, said, “Telstra Broadcast Services, formerly known as Globecast Australia, has built an enviable reputation ensuring its customers can deliver the quality content their users expect, quickly and effectively. When coupled with our extensive investment in Ooyala, our partnership with Akamai and our growing portfolio of specialised media products,  our decision to rebrand and clearly define our media services division is a strong indication of the strategic importance of this industry to Telstra.” Simon Farnsworth, now the Head of Telstra Broadcast Services, said, “The business name may have changed, but we remain focused on the exceptional delivery of content for our customers all over the world. As we continue to integrate with the wider Telstra team and take advantage of the many synergies across the business, we can offer our customers a broader range of bundled services, representing better value for their media investments.” One of the first deals reached under the Telstra Broadcast Services name, has seen Network Ten renew a multi-year contract for its global content delivery via fibre. Jason Tuendemann, Chief Technology Officer at Network Ten said, “Network Ten has entrusted the Globecast Australia team with delivery of its live, digital television for more than a decade across satellite and fibre. “In recent years, OTT via Globestream and the Globecam miniature cameras have added new dimensions to the service provision and indeed to Ten’s interaction with audiences across news, sport and entertainment.  Telstra is also a long-standing, trusted partner of Ten and we now look forward to working with the Telstra Broadcast Services team.” This year will also see Telstra Broadcast Services increase its Globecam live, digital devices commitment for Network Ten’s broadcast of the KFC Big Bash League, with more games than ever before. Telstra will be exhibiting and presenting at IBC until 15 September, you can visit the Telstra Broadcast Services team, and see a demo of the Globecam technology in action, at stand F37 in Hall 14.   Media contact: Michael Zappone +61 438 004 959 Email:

Theatre in Paris and Atos launch multilingual augmented reality surtitling through connected glasses

Baptiste - 02-sept.-2015 06:35:58

  Theatre in Paris and Atos launch multilingual augmented reality surtitling through connected glasses     Providing surtitles in English and Chinese for ‘King Lear’ and English and French for Return to Berratham at the Avignon Festival, starting July 4th 2015. Paris, 3 July 2015    At the Avignon Festival, Atos, an international leader in digital services, and Theatre in Paris, a cultural tourism company, will offer foreign spectators the possibility of attending French theatre performances in several languages thanks to their multilingual augmented-reality surtitling solution through  connected glasses. This innovation makes it possible to display dialogues in real time and in the chosen language   through the glasses, injecting a novel experience into the world of live entertainment. This solution is being rolled out as part of The Bridge Living Lab, the European accelerator for Crossover Culture & Technology, under the French Tech label. Theatre in Paris provides surtitled content and broadcasts it during the performances. Atos integrates and aligns technology with the constraints of live entertainment. The glasses are designed and manufactured by the French start-up company, Optinvent. For Paul Rondin, Managing Director of the Avignon Festival : "The Festival has always been a meeting point for creation, innovation and experimentation. These glasses not only demonstrate technological prowess, but are an accessibility tool, providing a simple way for cultures to be spread and making the other accessible to very different publics. In terms of our overall strategy, it is a perfect marriage of new technologies and theatre as old as time; it represents a good exploitation of the complementary nature of these two worlds, which we all need. " Carl de Poncins, President of Theatre in Paris : "Our ambition, since our creation in 2014, has been to open theatre doors to as many people as possible by enabling non-French speakers to attend performances given in French. Our dedicated English surtitling and reception service has already been successfully deployed in a number of Paris theatres. The augmented-reality solution we unveiled, with Atos, at the Avignon Festival should allow us to supplement our existing offer and give spectators a revolutionary new experience." Steve Peguet, Innovation Director at Atos France : "At Atos, we are convinced that innovation comes from bringing together people, business and technologies. Being responsible for the smooth operation of large-scale performances, providing spectators with new experiences and ensuring a secure environment for real-time devices have been part of Atos pallet of skills since the beginning of its partnership with the International Olympic Committee. Today, we are delighted to be contributing to the Avignon Festival our expertise acquired from providing IT services for all the Summer and Winter Olympic Games since 1992, and set to continue until 2024." Following testing under real-life conditions during the 2015 Avignon Festival, the solution is set to be deployed more widely at the 2016 festival, with two additional lines of development:   adjustments to the glasses for the hearing impaired to give them maximum enjoyment during performances, in particular in the open air; building on the possibilities provided by augmented reality by offering creators and producers the possibility of adding new content (superimposed 3D animation, the appearance of rain, augmented sceneries, etc.) About Atos Atos SE (Societas Europaea) is a leader in digital services with 2014 pro forma annual revenue of circa € 11 billion and 93,000 employees in 72 countries.

Since its start in 2014, the company has welcomed audiences from over 45 nationalities.

Press Contact: Carl de Poncins +33 6 66 77 14 57 About the Avignon Festival The Avignon Festival means 69 years of universal thought at the service of cultural heritage and contemporary creation. 69 years of placing art in the perspective of the reality of the society, 69 years of aesthetic and political projects that observe the majors metamorphoses of the performing arts and the complexity of mankind. In 2014, Olivier Py was the first director to run the Festival since it was founded by Jean Vilar. In keeping with his ideas, Py was reconnected to the militant spirit and offers to the public “a different relation to the world, one in wich politics are not isolated from both thinking and hope”.

Le marché audiovisuel en Australie

Baptiste - 20-août-2015 03:31:58

Fin 2013, l’Australie est passée à la télévision 100% numérique en désactivant définitivement son réseau hertzien. Le déploiement de la TNT étant achevé, la télévision gratuite (free-to-air) est désormais diffusée exclusivement en digital. A peine cette transition complétée, l’organisme en charge d’aligner les plateformes de diffusion – Freeview – a planifié le déploiement de la télévision interactive dès le second semestre 2014. Le standard choisi, le HbbTV, est une technologie développée principalement par un consortium européen et est le standard adopté en France pour la télévision interactive. La plupart des chaînes a désormais une application HBB TV. Tout comme en France, la migration de la télévision vers le digital a permis la création de nouvelles chaînes, entraînant le risque de réduction du temps d’antenne publicitaire des chaînes et donc de leurs revenus. Internet semble désormais être le nouveau champ de bataille. L’augmentation des débits et la multiplication des appareils connectés (smartphones et tablettes) déplacent les téléspectateurs des réseaux TV locaux vers d’autres supports et plateformes. Les différents acteurs audiovisuels sont du fait très attentifs aux nouvelles solutions qui peuvent leur être apportées tous domaines confondus : second & multi screen, catch-up TV, VOD, TV interactive… Retrouvez toutes les informations en téléchargeant la fiche   "Le marché audiovisuel en Australie" .
