Workplace Media Asset Management Topping off our Digital World Contributors LinkedIn Facebook Twitter Print Email A Centralised Public Alerting Solution for CBC Radio Canada s Radio Networks Article Contributors Marc Germain Project Manager Transmission Operations Dave Rainnie Spectrum Engineer Transmission Engineering Over the course of the past year public alerting has become an issue of high importance for Canadian broadcasters and for radio broadcasters in particular Providing emergency alerts to the Canadian public is critical to protecting the public from natural disasters and other threats to human life The National Alert Aggregation Dissemination System NAADS has been operational for over three years but for a variety of reasons its alerts have not been broadcast by the vast majority of Canadian broadcasters As you may well know the Canadian Radio television Telecommunications Commission CRTC 1 has imposed a condition of licence upon CBC Radio Canada requiring that emergency alerts from the NAADS be distributed on the Corporation s radio transmitters upon meeting certain criteria Alerts required to be broadcast must Be relevant to an area served by one of CBC Radio Canada s transmitters Be designated for immediate broadcast by the alert originator Be in the language of the CBC Radio Canada service and Contain audio content For those not familiar with the NAADS these last two criteria will significantly limit the number of alerts required to be broadcast Environment Canada 2 far and away the biggest alert contributor to the NAADS does not include audio content in its alerts However the implementation of Text to Speech TTS generators in alerting equipment enables broadcasters to generate an audible alert from NAADS alerts without audio content Additionally some provincial and territorial Emergency Management Organisations EMO s are not issuing alerts in both official languages Given that ignoring a tornado alert because it did not have an audio file attached and it was not in the language of the radio service would be extremely irresponsible on the part of CBC Radio Canada the Corporation will broadcast alerts even if they do not meet the last two criteria NAADS BAckground The NAADS is an emergency alert distribution system that allows Last Mile Distributors LMD s such as broadcasters and telecommunication companies to monitor one source for emergency alerts for almost the entire country Alberta has its own provincial system The NAADS is managed by Pelmorex Communications Inc and its alert servers are located in Oakville ON and Montreal QC Emergency alerts used by the NAADS meet the Common Alerting Protocol Canadian Profile CAP CP standard which is based on Extensible Markup Language XML 3 The NAADS servers receive their alerts from authorised government agencies such as provincial territorial EMOs Environment Canada police forces as well as other organisations given authorisation by the EMOs In the context of public alerting these authorised government agencies are referred to as alert originators or simply originators To provide an example of how the NAADS works consider a hypothetical tornado in southern Manitoba Given that the alert would be weather related Environment Canada would be the alert originator prepare the alert with the appropriate information and submit it to the NAADS servers After verification the alert is made available to LMDs The alert decoding equipment will see that a new alert is available and compare the information contained within the alert to determine whether the alert should be relayed An internal file known as a filter contains the criteria that must be met for an alert to be forwarded down the audio chain If all of the filter criteria are met the encoded audio in the alert is decoded and output from the alert decoder If no audio is contained within the alert the decoder will use the text found in the XML code and use a TTS generator to create an audible alert The output alert is then played on the LMD s transmitter s Centralised De Centralised Implementation Comparison Broadcasting all emergency alerts matching the aforementioned filter criteria will be

    Smartphone Coming Soon Nielsen the U S TV ratings company announced that they will add Tablet and Smartphone live TV viewing numbers into their mix in September 2014 Their competitor comScore has been offering cross platform video ad consumption analytics since 2013 but they do not offer the same live TV ratings for which the Nielsen Company is known The information that is gathered by these ratings companies gauges the number of people who are watching television programmes and the characteristics of those audiences which is then used by both advertisers and television programmers A breakdown of smartphone and tablet usage for live viewing would add another layer of data to be used in decisions around ad buying and programming Regular broadcast live viewing on smartphones and tablets could become the norm as more networks and cable companies make it available through their apps In Canada Bell Rogers Telus and Shaw offer many channels for live streaming on their apps whilst GlobalTV offers live streaming to cable TV subscribers on both its website and apps Canadian TV and radio ratings company BBM does not break down their ratings into tablet and smartphone at this point All live and 7 days back viewing that is done on TV desktop Web smartphone and tablet is compiled into one ratings number According to Jody Gabourie at BBM they will be implementing many more audio codes for the networks to use they currently each have one on their live and VOD streams so it should be possible to break out smartphone and tablet viewing BBM will be running a three month test of the new codes in the spring of 2014 and if the numbers are statistically viable smartphone and tablet ratings will become a reality in Canada Learn More Nielsen and comScore Add it Up Nielsen to Add Mobile Device Viewing to TV Ratings in Fall 2014 New Frankenmetrics Leave Monster of a Task for Nielsen TV Networks and Other Stakeholders ComScore Formally Debuts Multi Platform Ratings MythBuster Is There a Usage Gap Between iOS Android Sure we have seen Android overtake iOS for market share but according to Apple s CEO Tim Cook the true gap between the operating systems exists with respect to usage consequently who wins that battle Last month Safari for iOS captured more than 54 of mobile Web traffic while Android s browser made up only 23 worldwide iOS users are slightly younger than Android users according to comScore Wired com suggests that culturally these younger users tend to be glued to their phones and tablets throughout the day more so than older mobile device users and contribute to more Web traffic overall iOS users watch twice as much mobile video than Android users Wired com reports that Two thirds of online activity on Android phones is conducted over a cellular connection while more than half of all time spent online on iPhones happens over WiFi Unsurprisingly then Android users regularly consume more data than their iOS using peers With this in mind it makes particular sense that Android users would watch less high bandwidth video than iOS device owners iPhone users are 10 more likely to use social media daily 7 more likely to access news content and 15 more likely to visit online shopping sites According to comScore this is likely due to the notion that iPhone owners are power users Compared to Android users they are more likely to engage across a wider variety of major content categories Therefore the winner is iOS Even with fewer devices on the market they tend to be used more than their Android counterparts According to the September 2013 Monthly Devices Report by CBC Research iOS captured 10 more traffic than Android to the CBC touch site These important usage factors need to be taken into consideration by CBC Radio Canada with the development of new digital products Learn More Apple CEO Cook Customer Satisfaction Usage Gap Between iOS and Android is huge Android vs iOS User Differences Every Developer Should Know Why Aren t Android Users Actually Using their Handsets Monthly Devices Report CBC Research September 2013 It s a Phone It s a Tablet No It s a Phablet Neither a phone nor a tablet phablets are mobile devices with screens that are five to seven inches in size and have normal phone calling functions eliminating the need for both a phone and a tablet Recently there has been an increase in appetite for these large screen sizes with global shipments of so called phablets doubling to 60 4 million this year according to Bloomberg com With Samsung leading the charge mobile manufacturers are eager to get a share of the phablet pie Microsoft is now promoting new phablet friendly Windows Phone software and Apple is said to be jumping on the bandwagon with two phablet models rumoured for 2014 Consequently what does this mean for the mobile market as a whole Well not much yet According to Flurry Analytics of the top 200 mobile device models phablets only account for 2 However phablet sales are expected to rise rapidly over the next few years so changes to the makeup of the mobile market are anticipated As consumers access content through a wider variety of screen sizes CBC Radio Canada will have to adapt to changes in the mobile space and ensure that its users experience is optimised across all popular devices Learn More Phablets are a Niche Not a Fad Consumers Love Samsung s Huge Screens And That s Changing The Smartphone Market Can Apple Compete With Samsung in 46 Billion Phablet Market Microsoft Promotes Phablets After Smartphone Tablet Misfires Phablet Google s Not the Only Glass in Town With a mass market version of Google Glass on the horizon the way in which we interact with the outside world will never be the same again From taking pictures with voice commands

Workflow Phase III Article Contributors Gregg Antworth Senior Manager Post Production Graphic Design Pierre Lemieux Senior Director Operations As mentioned in previous 1 issues 2 of SYNC CBC Radio Canada s adoption of File based Workflow is one of the main pillars of the Corporation s transformation under the aegis of Strategy 2015 Everyone Every way 3 It is a colossal undertaking as well as a revolution in the way in which CBC Radio Canada produces content for Canadian audiences and consequently we have seized the opportunity to take a closer look at the progress that collaboration between the English and French Services has yielded over the last few months The general thrust of this article is to give an overview of the consolidation of file based workflows as well as the refinement of processes over time the empowerment of employees that has been made possible by the new workflows and collaborative tools the redefinition of content acquisition within the Corporation and the effect that metadata and the creation of a media library Alpha Catalogue will have upon our operations Consolidation Refinement At this point in time thanks to the ample buy in on the part of the groups involved within both the French and English Services implementation of File based Workflow has become widespread enough to be at a stage where the project s focus has shifted more towards consolidation and refinement of the new processes that have been put in place As of right now within CBC Radio Canada s English Services 95 of the content production is file based and the number of video tape recorders VTRs 4 at the Toronto Broadcast Centre will be reduced from 871 to fewer than 70 by April 2014 This reduction in numbers allowed for the creation of an Ingest Transfer Centre so that all video tape activity is centred in one room all of this simplification and streamlining has resulted in a much smaller capital footprint and consequently very significant cost savings throughout the content production process On the side of the French Services Avid Interplay Central 5 has been fully implemented as a browsing and collaboration tool and a replacement of most VTRs within la Maison de Radio Canada in Montreal has gone ahead thus providing similar benefits to those gained in Toronto Beyond that extensive progress has been made through a joint effort with the Media Support group to resolve any rights management issues linked to content a simple customised software solution was developed to allow content administrators to be able to grant or withdraw access to content immediately and securely which is critical when working with particularly sensitive material Thanks to these changes a lot of time is being saved over the course of the content production process and users have embraced the changes as soon as they have witnessed the resulting benefits Empowerment Through Workflows The advent of the Interplay Central ecosystem changed a variety of different elements within the production environment such as how files were named where they would go and how they would be used all of which are steps within workflows A really positive development at this phase in the File based Workflow project is that the ownership of a part of the workflows is no longer strictly technical anymore it lies with the end users Different programmes use Interplay Central in different ways as a collaborative tool with their respective editors and the degree of knowledge transfer between these different programmes has given rise to a situation in which users have

familiar with Google Earth 1 and its ability to let anyone navigate anywhere around the globe and view satellite imagery maps terrain buildings in 3D and the like Google Earth is an application that can easily be used by everyone CBC Radio Canada s Transmission Engineering team has found a way to leverage Google Earth s capabilities and use it as a broadcast engineering tool and at this point it is our clients and stakeholders that benefit the most from this application Google Earth allows users to save cartographic data and other information to kml and kmz files using these files engineering data can now be shared easily and quickly with anyone who may be interested within the organisation The Transmission Engineering team uses Google Earth for three major tasks coverage planning FM and Digital Television 2 DTV field strength measurements and Safety Code 6 3 measurements Traditionally the outcome of this work was shared with multiple static maps usually presented in a pdf format Each map required the engineering staff to put considerable time and effort into it however thanks to Google Earth these maps can now be replaced and all the relevant information can be provided in one single well organised file Coverage Planning One of the key fields of expertise of the Transmission Engineering team is coverage planning of CBC Radio Canada s over the air television and radio services It is within the context of this process that the team ensures that the parameters of the station under study such as its transmitter power antenna gain height of the centre of radiation and radiation pattern are optimised to best serve the area to be covered Figure 1 CBC Radio One Tillsonburg ON Repeater In the example shown in Figure 1 one can observe the coverage of three Radio One
