  34. 34. Life after NoTube ForegroundPolymedia and KIT digital are alreadyworking on a further implementationof the “Social TV” product(’s business interest is focused on the experienceacquired in NoTube about:  Delivering Interactive Broadband TV  Improving Mobile TV Remote with EPG functionalities  Implementing advanced search functionalities  Improving Profile Management with social activities  Improving Content Recommendations 26-27 March 2012 NoTube 3rd review 34
  35. 35. Life after NoTube Target Market and Sustainability• Polymedia customer base includes: – Large broadcasters (Mediaset, RAI and La7 in Italy, Telecinco in Spain) – Triple and quadruple player telecom operators (Telecom Italia, FastWeb/Swisscom Group, Vodafone Italia, 3 Italia and Belgacom) – Editorial and publishing groups (De Agostini, Mondadori, Il Sole 24 ore, ADNKronos, Sport Network in Italy and the Guardian Media Group Regional in UK) – Advertising agencies and directories (Publitalia ’80 and Seat Pagine Gialle)• In addition to that, Polymedia, part of KIT digital family, directly benefits from the holding company’s market strength: – Leading global provider of video asset management and multi-screen IP-based delivery solutions – Revenue model mainly based on recurring SaaS showing a strong and consistent revenue growth 26-27 March 2012 NoTube 3rd review 35
  36. 36. Active during NoTube 2011• Joined IBC 2011  Supported Semantic Personalised News demonstrator preparation  Advertised NoTube jointly with commercial demonstrations at Polymedia and KIT digital stands.• Joined NEM-Summit 2011  UC 7a by RAI and Polymedia at RAI’s booth  Supported the preparation of the UC 7.a presentation  Papers available in NEM Conference Proceedings ( Proceedings.pdf)• Organised internal meetings with the following goals:  Share the project knowledge with companys commercial BU  Support the re-engineering and inspiration of features to be implemented in KIT digitals Social TV solution 26-27 March 2012 NoTube 3rd review 36
  37. 37. NoTube Impact Factor• Within the Consortium – Impact on industry (broadcaster and service developers) assessed through WP6 evaluation → weakness and mitigation actions• Outside the Consortium – Standards&de-facto standards adopted/considered (REST, SOAP, RDF, TV-Anytime, BMF, XMPP, etc.) – HbbTV Consortium and other related projects (e.g. FI-content and HBB Next) very interested in “learning” from NoTube • Provision of Applications • Findings about different Hybrid TV systems • Data aggregation and enrichment • User profiling 26-27 March 2012 NoTube 3rd review 37
  38. 38. Linked in NoTube• The Architecture is transverse to the project• Involved actors: – User profile management (WP3) – Platform services (WP1, 2, 3, 4) – Semantic middleware (WP5) – Applications, including use cases (WP 7.a, 7.b, 7.c) 26-27 March 2012 NoTube 3rd review 38
  39. 39. Learned during NoTube [1/2]• The integration process is not always transparent to the Broadcasters  The integration approach should be carefully planned in the context of the considered workflow• Collecting clear requirements from a service developer perspective is a hard task  In the real world it’s better to focus on broadcaster’s requirements instead of individual research objectives• The added value introduced by platform services heavily depends on the Broadcaster’s internal workflow  While some services may not be remarkable as expected, others could provide positive results 26-27 March 2012 NoTube 3rd review 39
  40. 40. Learned during NoTube [2/2]• Providing only one choice for integrating services is a limitation  In NoTube services can be reached directly or through the Semantic Broker• Having a central entry point for managing users and applications preferences helps populating the platform community  Direct interface for end-users and newcomers.  Social-related services (i.e. recommendations) indirectly benefit from this approach 26-27 March 2012 NoTube 3rd review 40
