Amazon: The 11 NFL Games It Streamed This Season Reached 18.4 Million Viewers

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 17:20:52 -0500

footballAccording to numbers made available by Amazon Sports late last week, Amazon Prime Video’s live streams of 11 NFL games this season reached 18.4 million total viewers in 224 countries and territories.
 
Data also showed that the average-minute audience (AMA) watching NFL games on Prime Video for at least 30 seconds was more than 310,000 — 17% larger than Twitter’s last season — and those viewers watched an average of 63 minutes.
 
All in all, more than 750 million minutes of live NFL coverage was watched on Prime Video this season, which equates to 12.5 million hours.
 
The most successful game for Amazon Prime Video proved to be the Dec. 7 Thursday-night matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints, which attracted approximately 2 million live viewers.
 
Live streaming was most popular — on a per capita basis — in Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Utah, and Washington, D.C. Internationally, Mexico topped the list, with more watching the NFL on Prime Video than in any other country, followed by Germany, South Korea, Brazil, the UK, and Japan.

LG 4K UHD TVs In Korea Include ATSC 3.0 Tuners

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 17:28:53 -0500

LG logoLG Electronics (LG), co-developer of the ATSC 3.0 next-generation television broadcast standard, confirmed that all LG 4K Ultra HD TVs now on the market in South Korea already incorporate ATSC 3.0 tuning circuitry.
 
At CES 2018, where the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) officially released the new suite of standards, LG announced plans to support broadcast trials and early deployment testing in the United States during 2018.
 
Korea adopted the Next Gen TV standard in 2017 and leading broadcasters KBS, MBC and SBS launched ATSC 3.0 broadcasting in advance of 4K UHD transmission of next month’s 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang. Since last fall, all new LG 4K UHD TVs and most new LG smart TVs sold in Korea have included dual ATSC 3.0-ATSC 1.0 tuner chips.
 
To support initial U.S. Next Gen TV broadcast deployments, LG said it will leverage its marketplace experience from the launch of Next Gen TV in Korea and its technical expertise as co-developer of ATSC 3.0, which has been hailed as the world’s first Internet Protocol-based TV broadcast system.
 
Expected to redefine TV broadcasting for decades to come, the ATSC 3.0 broadcast standard is designed to deliver 4K Ultra HD and immersive audio, robust reception on mobile devices and improved spectrum efficiency. The increased payload capacity of the physical layer combined with HEVC encoding will allow broadcasters more options for expanding their broadcast service offerings, including business-to-business opportunities in new markets such as the automotive segment.

In addition, NBC Olympics will offer VR replays of all events previously live-streamed, one daily 360-degree video of a sport not available in VR the previous day, and packaged highlights from the day before.
 
“The Olympics have long been an opportunity to showcase emerging media technology,” says Gary Zenkel, president, NBC Olympics. “With the help of Intel’s industry-leading virtual-reality technology, NBC Olympics will deliver a transformative experience that will bring to Olympic fans an entirely new perspective on the speed, thrills, and excitement of an Olympic Winter Games.”

ScopePrepared By The Markertek Engineering Department...

A PDU is a device with multiple outlets designed to distribute electric power to computers or networking equipment within a rack. For example, a blade server installation consisting of four 7U blade server frames in a 42U rack would require sixteen 20A power supplies! PDUs solve this problem by taking the power supplied to the rack and distributing it via multiple outlets to the rack’s servers and networking equipment.
 
With seven types of PDUs from which to choose, it can be a challenge to determine which PDU is best for your rack power design. I’ll overview the types and benefits of each PDU in this post to simplify the selection process.
 
Our friends at Tripp Lite have put together a handy guide to help you make the choice that best suited for your application. Read the Guide to Choosing the Right PDU from Tripp Lite Here!
