Digital Mediaina state Digital Mediaina state Presentation Transcript

  • Digital Media in a State
  • One way to look at it:
  • Or :) • Use new EU and State sponsored digital networks • work locally with test bed schemes • export your proven digital work and ideas • Stay relevant
  • 1. EU Digital Agenda 2010 September 27th 2010: “Driving the Digital Agenda Conference”, Dublin. 1. A digital single market. (e.g. selling copyright content across 27 states, securely, open border ecommerce...) 2. Standards setting for “interoperability”- networks/systems communicating hassle free 3. Fast/Ultra Fast Internet (and what to do with it) 4. R&D Innovation funding being made available from Europe 5. Enhancing digital literacy, inclusion and access 6. Benefits for environment, society, climate (e.g. measurement and smart, efficient energy systems, security and privacy, open/neutral systems...)
  • Use the EU: • http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/ digital-agenda/index_en.htm
  • 2. Irish Digital Media 2010 • 2000-present: efforts were focused on attracting multinational operations to Ireland. • 2010-2020 is “the decade of attracting overseas entrepreneurs to Ireland.” (Innovation Open Labs Europe 7/9/2010) • The “Smart Economy”: dependent on Ireland being a test bed for digital media.
  • Testing, testing, testing. • The government has spent large sums of money to build a “test bed” for digital R&D • This is an infrastructure that mirrors development of digital media networks in the rest of the world. • It is an open testing environment, run by the government and accessible to everyone (with a plan)
  • Scale Dublin London Singapore County Dublin Area Pop:1,186,159 London Area Pop: 7,512,400 Singapore Area Pop: 5,800,000 DENSITY 1218/km2 DENSITY: 4,758/km2 DENSITY: 7022/km2
  • The Singapore Example • Singapore’s “next generation broadband network” was necessary as demand for broadband outstrips supply in a high density population • The whole infrastructure was rewired to supply faster broadband- super fast (up to 1GB/s • Ireland wants similar. Some places are testing for this...
  • State Owned “smart” incentives: 1. Exemplar Network 2. Smartbay (smart water management) 3. Frequency Spectrum Playground 4. Environmental Sensor Web 5. Smart Power Grids 6. Communication Networks
  • Exemplar Network • West Dublin test bed for super fast broadband companies and research to try new things • http://www.siliconrepublic.com/video/v/ 334-digital-21-the-exemplar/
  • Your Country Your Call • Your Country Your Call winners: I. Make Ireland a Global Media Hub (Neil Leyden) “a Global Media Hub for the creation and distribution of media... film, television content, music, games, mobile content, news, books or whatever hybrid media emerges.” (SEE ALSO IRELAND/WALES FIBRE CABLE...) II. Data Island Strategy: “By 2020, Ireland is the market leader in Global Green Mega Data Centres powered directly by our abundant wind and ocean renewable energy sources.”
  • Find people involved in the “Smart Economy” • Your Country Your Call winners • EU reps • Minister Eamon Ryan (total geek!) • Intune Networks (Exemplar) • Other universities and businesses
  • Areas to look at • content production and distribution • data management, storage and processing • information and content services • cloud computing • measurement, feedback and analysis systems in cities and high population areas • video, games and entertainment • health • privacy and security
