eNCA goes HD

Posted by radio On January - 23 - 2020 ADD COMMENTS

Popular 24-hour news channel eNCA (DStv 403) has launched an innovative high-tech HD studio that boasts a massive 12 x 3 curved LED video wall.

 

The multi-purpose studio video wall – the biggest on the African continent – ensures that the eNCA viewer receives voice, pictures, text and videos at an enhanced sensory level.

Live in-studio action will be captured by six HD cameras, five of which are on robotics and the sixth on a jib

 

Group Technical GM Rose Rogers said, “Our use of this technologically advanced equipment in the new HD studio is exceptional and will provide a sharp and refreshing feel to all our programs. The semi-circular set shape will allow for an increase in camera angles compared to the previous U-shaped set design. It took us months of work to ensure that the new studios are a perfect fit for the upgraded broadcast quality.”


Joe Heshu, Group Executive for Corporate Affairs at the MultiChoice Group said: “In line with our purpose of giving and delighting our viewers with great quality content and entertainment, eNCA’s launch of the high-tech HD studio on our platform is just one more way of ensuring we can play a role in supporting the growth of the local TV industry and creating lasting partnerships with local stakeholders which will guide the success of the industry.”

Netflix last week celebrated the opening of its new Paris office in the heart of the 9th arrondissement. This new office reflects Netflix’s long-term commitment to France’s creative community, including over 20 French productions in 2020.

 

Netflix’s French HQ: dedicated to the creative community

Located in the heart of Paris, the French HQ is Netflix’s fourth office in Europe. Netflix France currently employs 40 people, across films and series, partnerships and marketing.

“It is a real honour to be in France, with its rich culture and history of storytelling. This office is a sign of our long-term commitment to the country, and will enable us to work even more closely with the French creative community on great shows and films that are made in France and watched all around the world”, said Reed Hastings, Founding Chairman and CEO of Netflix.

French series and films for French people, showcasing local creativity in France and around the world

To reflect the diverse tastes of our members in France and our 158 million+ members around the world, Netflix has, since launching in France in 2014, developed 24 French titles, including 6 films, 9 series, 5 stand-up shows, 3 documentaries and 1 unscripted series.

2019 was a year of great success for original stories in France, with the horror and YA sci-fi series Marianne and Mortel, comedies Plan coeur and Family Business, the film Banlieusards, and Grégory, the documentary series about a case that touched France.

 

 

 

The French content executives today unveiled several original shows to be produced by Netflix over the coming years as well as a range of series and films made by production partners for Netflix. They include:

  • BigBug, the new film by César Award Winner Jean-Pierre Jeunet, based on a script written by Jeunet and Guillaume Laurant — a comedy set in the future with a cast including César Award Winner Elsa Zylberstein, César Award Nominee Isabelle Nanty, and Manu Payet.

  • Fanny Herrero, the hugely admired screenwriter, is developing a 6-part series following the lives of four young comedians trying to make it in the Paris stand-up scene.

  • The renewal (Season 2) of the original YA Sci-fi series Mortel, created by Frederic Garcia.

  • Sentinelle, an action-packed film starring Olga Kurylenko, directed by Julien Leclercq (Braqueurs and La Terre et le Sang).

 

 

This comes on the back of a range of original shows already announced for 2020:

  • Arsène Lupin, starring Omar Sy, and created by George Kay in collaboration with François Uzan. The first three episodes will be directed by Louis Leterrier.

  • La Révolution, a historical thriller series created by Aurélien Molas.

  • The Eddy, Damien Chazelle’s series created by Jack Thorne, that reunites Leïla Bekhti and Tahar Rahim.

  • Vampires, starring Oulaya Amamra and Suzanne Clément, and created by Benjamin Dupas and Isaure Pisani-Ferry.

  • Two documentaries, one about Nicolas Anelka, developed by Franck Nataf, and the other featuring Maître Gims, directed by Florent Bodin.

“We are incredibly proud of the productions we’re currently filming, the ones we are developing and the ones we’ve unveiled today. The establishment of a new French creative hub brings new opportunities for us to work with the best and most exciting creative talent in France and to bring diverse genres and content to everyone who loves French storytelling,” added Damien Couvreur, Netflix’s Director of Series in France.

 

 

Betting on the creative talent of tomorrow and promoting diversity in all its forms

Netflix also today announces a series of partnerships with major French creative institutions, to support new voices and to increase diversity within the creative community. Those partnerships include:

  • Strengthening Netflix’s existing partnership with La Fémis by supporting their ‘Residency’ programme, an 11-month full-time training course that helps young people from disadvantaged backgrounds get into film and TV.

  • 1000 visages, an association founded in 2006 by Houda Benyamina, which provides a number of training programmes in film and promotes access to jobs within the creative industries. Netflix will become the main partner in the programme dedicated to series’ screenwriting, to be launched in January 2020. Houda Benyamina is also the director of two episodes of The Eddy.

  • Since 2019, Netflix has partnered with GOBELINS L’École de l’Image, giving one graduate every year the opportunity to work alongside Netflix’s animation experts in Japan. In addition, Netflix will now contribute to Gobelins’ training program by funding four-year scholarships for five students as part of their Master of Arts in “Character Animation and Animated Filmmaking”.

Apple has marked the close of a historic 2019 for its Services offerings, a year that introduced Apple Arcade, Apple TV+, Apple News+ and Apple Card, and celebrated the continued success of the App Store, Apple Music, iCloud and more experiences only Apple can create and deliver. Apple provides customers with the highest-quality services along with an unparalleled commitment to privacy and security, and offers creators and developers the opportunity to bring their creative visions to people around the world.
“2019 was the biggest year for Services in Apple’s history. We introduced several exciting new experiences for our customers, all while setting the standard for user privacy and security,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “We begin the new decade with incredible momentum and gratitude to our customers who have shown such enthusiasm for all of our Services, and we continue to celebrate the work of the world’s best creators, storytellers, journalists and developers.”
Apple’s ongoing focus on the deep integration of hardware, software and services drove all of its platforms to new heights in 2019.
The App Store is the world’s safest and most vibrant app marketplace, with over half a billion people visiting each week. It remains the safest place for users to find software and provides developers of all sizes access to customers in 155 countries. Since the App Store launched in 2008, developers have earned over $155 billion, with a quarter of those earnings coming from the past year alone. As a measure of the excitement going into 2020, App Store customers spent a record $1.42 billion between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, a 16 percent increase over last year, and $386 million on New Year’s Day 2020 alone, a 20 percent increase over last year and a new single-day record.
Apple Music is the most complete music experience, offering over 60 million songs and world class music experts and tastemakers curating thousands of playlists and daily selections in 115 countries. Apple Music is the best music service for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, Mac, HomePod and CarPlay. The new time-synced lyrics feature was a highlight in 2019: over 50 percent of listeners have used it on iOS 13. The innovative Beats 1 radio station offers exclusive shows by Frank Ocean, Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, DJ Khaled and Elton John. Apple Music provides artists and songwriters at every level of their career with a global platform to reach new and existing audiences.
Apple TV+ is the home of Apple Originals from the world’s greatest storytellers, including “The Morning Show,” “Dickinson,” “For All Mankind,” “See” and “Servant.” Apple TV+ made history as the first streaming platform to receive multiple Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations in its launch year, and is the first and only streaming service to debut instantly in over 100 countries and regions.
The Apple TV app brings together the different ways to discover and watch shows, movies and more in one app, and is available on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, iPod touch, select Samsung smart TVs, and Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices, and will be available on LG, Sony and VIZIO smart TVs later this year. The Apple TV app now offers over 30 Apple TV channels — direct subscriptions to premium video services so customers can watch both online and offline, ad-free and on demand, all in one app.
Apple Arcade is a groundbreaking game subscription service within the App Store, offering users unlimited access to the entire catalog of 100+ new, exclusive games, all playable across iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Apple TV. Apple Arcade features award-winning titles such as “Sayonara Wild Hearts,” “Assemble with Care” and “Mini Motorways,” and throughout 2020, the service will add new games and expansions every month.
Apple News draws over 100 million monthly active users in the US, UK, Australia and Canada and has revolutionised how users access news from all their favourite sources. Apple News+ offers an all-in-one subscription to hundreds of the world’s top magazines and major newspapers. In 2020, Apple News will provide live coverage of key moments in the US presidential election in partnership with ABC News.
Apple Podcasts offers free audio stories that entertain, inform and inspire, and now delivers listeners over 800,000 shows in 155 countries on more devices than ever before. Listeners can search topics and people within the audio to find new shows and episodes.
Apple Card and Apple Pay lead innovation with the ways customers pay for goods and services, and access everyday experiences. Last month, customers began using Apple Card Monthly Installments to purchase new iPhones and pay for them over 24 months with zero interest. In 2019, entry to more than 150 stadiums, ballparks, arenas and entertainment venues around the world was available with contactless tickets on iPhone and Apple Watch. Customers could ride public transit with Apple Pay in some of the largest cities in the world, including Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, Moscow, London and New York. In 2020, customers will be able to easily tap their iPhone and Apple Watch to ride trains and buses in even more cities, including Washington, D.C., Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Foshan, and access dorms and services at additional universities across the US.
iCloud powers a seamless experience in keeping a customer’s photos, videos, files, app data and more safe, up to date and available across all their devices. Over 75 percent of iCloud users are protected with two-factor authentication, an extra layer of security designed to ensure that no one else can access their account or data. With Family Sharing, up to six family members can share access to Apple services, including Apple TV+, Apple News+, Apple Arcade, Apple Music and an iCloud storage plan, as well as individual music, movie, TV, book and app purchases.
In 2020, Apple will continue to delight customers, collaborate with developers and creators, offering new levels of creativity, choice and innovation across original series and films, podcasts, music, news, games, apps, payments and unique experiences only Apple can deliver.

MTN BUSHFIRE FESTIVAL: Visual Arts Activations

Artists get to display their creativity and artistically amplify the pertinent social issues highlighted in  the Bring Your Fire Zone through murals that will be painted throughout the entire festival. We are looking for experienced artists who can think on their feet and create quality work under pressure.

 

The Bring Your Fire Zone is an interactive and creative space, located at the very heart of the main festival arena. The space actively encourages participation around responsible initiatives and promotes advocacy in an interactive environment.

Within the Zone, various partners and festival goers actively engage with this theme to make their personal contribution towards collectively creating a powerful  wave of social inclusion and the spirit tolerance that continue to reverberate beyond the festival weekend. This year we shine light on our #GREENYOURFIRE campaign our pledge to eliminate single-use plastics throughout the festival. Therefore, artists are also encouraged to use their art to augment the urgent need for environmental consciousness.

 

Interested and qualified artists can apply by sending their portfolio to Notsile Nkambule atprojectmanager@bush-fire.com by the 21 February 2020. Should you not receive any response from MTN Bushfire after this period, please consider your application unsuccessful.

Showmax binge stats and factoids

Posted by radio On January - 8 - 2020 ADD COMMENTS

The nation collectively viewed more than 100 years’ worth of video on Showmax over Christmas and New Year.

More people than ever before got on the streaming bandwagon, and those who were watching streamed more than usual. The net effect was a 30% increase in viewing hours compared to the average seen in prior months.

 

When did we hit peak couch time? We thought the day after Christmas would see the most people retreating under a duvet to watch TV, but viewing activity actually maxed out on Sunday, 29 December.

 

What time of the day? No surprises that evenings are the most popular time to watch TV, but interestingly the peak over the holidays was earlier than we see during the rest of the year, hitting a high at 6pm.

 

The most-watched local genre? People can’t get enough of local reality shows, with a particularly strong showing from The Real Housewives of Johannesburg.

 

Which sport got the most views? More people watched Wolves beat Manchester City 3-2 on 27 December (and all but end City’s title hopes) than any other game.

 

Did people use the holidays to binge more than usual? Oh yes – there was a big jump in bingeing. For our most popular series, once people had locked on they watched on average more than 30 episodes of the same show over the holiday period. The peak binge by a single account was more than 200 episodes of the same show!

 

Which series genres were the most-binged? Comedy, medical drama and crime drama were all really popular binge destinations (people watching multiple successive episodes).

 

What were the most-binged local series? The River, Binnelanders and Getroud Met Rugby stood out in terms of the number of successive episodes watched.

Any other content trends? People watched way more movies than usual, which could be a reflection of having more opportunities to sit still for several hours at a time.

And how do the trends stack up around Africa? South Africans clearly take their leisure time seriously, with average hours per viewer up 21% compared to normal activity, while in Nigeria that increase was just 10%, and in Kenya an even smaller increase of 7%.

 

In the coming year, Showmax will be ramping up local content starting with The River S3 on 27 January, followed with Lockdown S5 on 30 Jan. Hollywood will continue to feature strongly, with Ray Donovan S7 starting 20 January and more blockbusters like A Star is Born and Aquaman for movie fans. Our recently expanded Kids’ selection includes everything from Paw Patrol to Star Wars Resistance. Finally, 2020 will see more top-flight sport, including more football from major local and international leagues coming live to Showmax.

Helpful info for choosing your next TV

Posted by radio On December - 19 - 2019 ADD COMMENTS

South Africans love their TV’s. From their favourite soapies to great sporting moments, it’s a part of our homes, culture and some of our best times with family and friends. However, when choosing a new TV, here are a few frequently asked questions you may need answered.

What is a ‘Quantum Dot’?

 

Quantum dots are tiny particles of between two and 10 nanometres in diameter. Each dot gives off a different colour according to its size. This is the reason they’re so brilliant at displaying colour.

 

Is there a difference between OLED and QLED?

 

There definitely is. Since QLED TVs don’t use organic elements, they are essentially immune to screen burn-in. This is a display issue in which certain facets of an image shown on a TV screen, such as a channel logo, are either not shown properly, or fragments of that image remain on the screen. It then appears longer, as though it is embedded onto the display. In fact, TechRader addressed the QLED versus OLED debate by citing Samsung QLED as ‘’Capable of competing with and often surpassing even the best OLED’s.

 

What does colour volume mean?

 

It means that colour doesn’t ever fade, in any lighting condition. It pinpoints colour accuracy, improved brightness and the deepest blacks are achieved on an active display.

 

What TV is best for my bedroom?

 

Screen size, resolution and display type, are all things to take into consideration to make sure it’s the right TV for your space. But the best place to start is viewing distance, which will ultimately help to determine those factors. Since the TV may be closer to you in the bedroom, a high-definition 4K TV like Samsung QLED TV would be good to ensure that you get crisp details on screen despite it being in closer proximity. With the new QLED 8K the experience is heightened even more. Unlike conventional TV’s when you’re closer to the TV you see the actual picture, in crystal clarity, instead of a sea of fuzzy pixels. Of course, this is great in every other room as well.

What TV is best during the day?

 

When you watch TV during the day, the sun can wash out details or even completely cover up a portion of the screen. A TV with HDR (High Dynamic Range) helps in this situation as it keeps details clear on-screen even when the scene is dark or bright. In addition to HDR capabilities, consider picking up a TV which helps reflect light sources to lessen glare, like Samsung QLED.

 

The Samsung 2019 QLED range is, however, an easy choice. It has taken the experience to a whole new level. Not only is the range, its largest screen size offering ever but it delivers, a truly incredible viewing experience and unprecedented value.
