International Datacasting Corporation Delivers Executive Keynote on DTH Content Distribution in India

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/04/13 -- International Datacasting Corporation (TSX:IDC), a global leader in digital content distribution for the world's premiere broadcasters, will address executives in a keynote presentation on the critical challenges and opportunities facing Direct-to-Home (DTH) broadcasters in emerging markets at Convergence India, January 16-18, 2013, New Delhi.

Recent analyst research from Frost & Sullivan (Dec. 2012) estimates that India will see over 100 million DTH subscribers by 2018, and notes that India is set to become the largest DTH market in the world. Many of these subscribers will reside in multiple dwelling units (MDUs) which are being constructed to meet the residential demands of an exploding population. Typically, MDUs consist of apartments, gated communities, hotels, and campuses. The existing modes of broadcast content distribution in these densely populated regions are not designed for or developed to handle this level of demand.

International Datacasting's Digital Tattoo(TM) platform is designed to address the specific needs of content delivery to residential and commercial MDUs. IDC's unique platform enables DTH satellite operators to expand their customer base for existing services within these buildings, and to extend the range of services they offer including comprehensive Video on Demand (VOD) and Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) services. Digital Tattoo(TM) offers the ability to maximize revenues by providing cost-effective, Ethernet-based content distribution within MDUs. Ethernet content distribution within the MDU is easier, more efficient and less expensive to implement than the alternatives, and can be reused by MDU owners to offer lucrative value-added services to residents. For the MDU owner, this means that the Digital Tattoo(TM) platform can replace a multitude of individual dishes and antennas, and provide equal access to television broadcast services for all residents.

"IDC recognized early on the need to better reach subscribers in densely populated regions such as India, and Asia, and the need to offer valuable services," stated Gary Carter, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. "In response to this growing need, IDC developed the Digital Tattoo(TM) platform to enable global broadcasters to maximize revenues in areas unequipped to meet demands resulting from exploding population growth."

Learn more about IDC's solutions for DTH satellite television broadcasters and the opportunities to provide VOD and IPTV services at Convergence India, New Delhi. Mr. Gary Carter will be speaking on January 17, as part of a keynote session in Track 6: "Next Gen TV: DTH Distribution Over IP for Multi Dwelling Units". This keynote address will be followed by an expert industry panel session "Nascent Technologies to Enhance TV Experience" which will also be moderated by Mr. Carter.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
