Adobe Takes Major Step to Bring Broadcast TV Online

Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today unveiled major new components of Project Primetime, the industry’s first fully integrated video technology platform that publishes and monetizes broadcast TV content across any Web-connected device. Adobe® MediaWeaver®, Adobe’s new ad insertion service, dynamically places ads into content to maximize revenue. This new offering delivers a viewing experience that mirrors broadcast TV while also supporting audience targeting and analytics to increase media inventory value. Adobe also introduced Primetime Media Player, an industry-first player technology that allows TV content owners and distributors to maximize audience reach and ensure that all experiences are immediately monetizable through seamless ad insertion and analytics.

Along with these new components, the company announced the availability of the beta version of the full Primetime solution. The platform tightly integrates Adobe’s video publishing, advertising and data solutions to ensure TV content owners and distributors can maximize the value of their content with the broadest audience reach, seamless HD video playback, and fully optimized content and ad delivery across any Web-connected device. Content owners can easily deploy individual components of Primetime to fit their infrastructure needs or let the full solution handle the entire workflow.

Adobe MediaWeaver

Adobe MediaWeaver, Adobe’s new ad insertion service, places ads into live, linear, and Video-on-Demand (VoD) content using new patent-pending technology that provides unparalleled control, flexibility and user experiences. The system, which is available as a beta today, enables dynamic ad executions for video content in browsers and apps on any Web-connected device, creating an engaging, buffer-free ad and content experience for consumers. Adobe is the only company in the industry that provides dynamically inserted ad experiences that mirror broadcast TV while also offering content owners and distributors the ability to effectively target and report on audiences, a limitation with other current solutions.

Primetime Media Player

The new Primetime Media Player is at the core of Primetime and allows TV content owners and distributors to rely on a single workflow for content preparation, rights management and streaming to eliminate platform fragmentation challenges and maximize reach. In addition, the player reduces costs by tightly integrating with all Primetime components including Adobe SiteCatalyst®, Adobe AudienceManager and Adobe Auditude®, which ensures for the first time that content, ads and analytics are optimized and inserted within the player to maximize the value of the content and provide a more meaningful audience experience.

The Primetime Media Player is available as a beta today via an SDK for Windows, Mac OS, Android and iOS and will also be extended to include web-connected platforms such as game consoles, OTT devices and connected TVs. Primetime Media Player for desktop browsers leverages Flash® Player, and adds broadcast-specific capabilities such as closed captioning, seamless ad insertion, and advanced analytics. The Primetime Media Player for mobile works within apps today, and will support native browser environments in the future. Consumers do not have to download a separate player for non-desktop devices. For more details, visit our blog.

Full Integration with Adobe Advertising and Data Solutions

The unique integration of Adobe MediaWeaver, Adobe SiteCatalyst, Adobe AudienceManager, and Adobe Auditude allows TV content owners and distributors to optimize their video and ad content, and quickly turn insights into greater revenue. In return, audiences will benefit from video content and ads that are more relevant to them. Adobe SiteCatalyst gives TV content owners and distributors a deep understanding of consumer engagement with content and ads. By integrating it into Adobe AudienceManager and Adobe Auditude, this valuable consumer engagement data can now seamlessly be used to activate audience segments and further optimize the ad experience and revenue.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
“We're a global managed hosting provider. Our core customer set is a U.S.-based customer that is looking to go global,” explained Adam Rogers, Managing Director at ANEXIA, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
