Stan Moote asks Jim Burger who is an attorney in Washington at Thompson and Coburn to explain what is really going on, and the consequences of this reversal.
The opinion of the CBI, informed by consultations with its members over the past 18 months, is that developing a future close relationship between UK and EU regulatory regimes is essential to make Brexit a success. It concludes that it is important that the UK is “…involved in the policy-making, monitoring and enforcement of rules that affect it. EU bodies provide a crucial venue for this to take place, as well as a way of UK industry to learn from best practice across borders.”
IABM, the international trade association for suppliers of broadcast and media technology, has recently published a business intelligence update on the Middle East and North Africa region to keep our members up to speed with what’s going in this diverse market, so they can get the most out of the forthcoming Cabsat show. Here’s a taster of its findings; IABM members can read the full report on the IABM website. A diverse market in transition The Middle East and North Africa is a diverse region made up of countries at varying levels of economic development. While GCC states boast living standards comparable with those of North America and Europe, other countries in this region are less developed. This diversity translates into different levels of broadcast and media development. While the Middle East is already home to some UHD offerings, North African broadcasters remain focused on long-standing technology transitions such as the upgrade to digital broadcasting.

November 22, 2017 Prepared by the Office of FCC Commissioner Clyburn What is Net Neutrality? Net neutrality is the concept that consumers and businesses should be able to reach the online applications and services of their choosing without interference from their broadband provider. In other words, that all data and all legal traffic that travels over the Internet should be treated equally. This has been a bipartisan bedrock principle for more than a decade. What is Commissioner Clyburn’s position on Net Neutrality? Commissioner Clyburn has been an unwavering champion of robust, bright-line net neutrality rules that protect consumers against the anti-consumer and anti-competitive practices of broadband providers. The Commissioner continues to believe that the 2015 rules adopted by the FCC are the best way to protect consumers and small businesses while promoting innovation. Is it true that Chairman Pai’s proposal would eliminate Net Neutrality? Yes. It eliminates all prohibitions against blocking and throttling (slowing down) applications by broadband providers, and enables them to engage in paid prioritization and unreasonable discrimination at the point of interconnection. It ignores thousands of consumer complaints and millions of individual comments that ask the FCC to save net neutrality and uphold the principles that all...
November 29, 2017 - 1:00 pm By Mignon Clyburn | Commissioner This week, millions of Americans returned to work after spending time with family and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday. Amidst the travel and meal preparations, many may have missed the "Pre-Holiday News Dump" last Wednesday when Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai released his 200 plus page proposal to dismantle the agency's open internet protections. Commonly referred to as "net neutrality," what is at stake is the ability of consumers and businesses to reach the online applications and services of their choosing without interference from their broadband provider. This has been a bipartisan bedrock principle for more than a decade, it was upheld in court last year, and has existed all while investment by broadband providers continues to grow. When I joined the FCC in 2009, as one of the agency's five Commissioners, Netflix's streaming video service had been around for just two years. Tumblr was still a relatively new player and Spotify was still two years away from launching in the U.S. These companies have seen tremendous growth over the past eight years thanks to a level playing field. Their continued success depends on an ability to...
Demystifying the concept of Media ERP and explains how it can help content enterprises re-invent the way they work!
The broadcast media enterprise is facing extraordinary change from several disruptive forces: Over-the-Top (OTT) methods and providers; anyplace/anytime viewing; transitioning the media infrastructure to commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment; moving to all-IP media transport; operating in new geographic markets; and possibly Ultra-HD (UHD) video and/or high dynamic range (HDR) support. Top off this list with the ever-increasing pressure to do more with less, and it is no wonder that today’s enterprises must rethink how workflows are implemented. This whitepaper is your playbook to adapting to meet these challenges with new strategies and examples for managing, acquiring, processing, and delivering media assets.
