first_imgParis, France | AFP |  FIFA on Wednesday ordered a World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Senegal to be replayed after the referee was banned for match fixing.The November 2016 tie, which will be restaged in November, was won by South Africa 2-1 after Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey awarded them a controversial penalty.Lamptey was initially suspended for three months by African football’s ruling body CAF for awarding a penalty for a non-existant handball”, with FIFA handing down the life ban in March.News of the rematch comes as a boost for Senegal, who are placed third, one point behind Cape Verde and Burkina Faso in African zone qualifying Group D, with two games to go.Only the group winners secure a ticket to the 2018 finals in Russia. FIFA explained the decision to replay the game had come after sport’s highest court CAS had confirmed “the lifetime ban of match referee, Joseph Lamptey, for match manipulation, the ruling imposed by the FIFA Disciplinary and Appeal Committees”.The statement added: “The match will be replayed within the November 2017 international window, with the exact date to be confirmed in due course.

first_img Pluto TVPluto TV is rapidly gaining momentum as a competitive player on the OTT block. It’s completely free to consumers and available on all major devices. Pluto TV delivers more than 100 TV channels and an on-demand library with thousands of free movies. It’s premised on the “lean back” TV experience and equipped with traditional TV features, including an online program guide and channel-surfing capabilities. Being free and full of premium programming, it’s easy to attract existing OTT fans and those new to the space.Pluto TV offsets the cost of the viewer experience by offering ad-supported commercials, similar to those executed by traditional cable and broadcast networks today. It includes established networks like NBC News, CBSN, Food TV, and Fox Sports, as well as popular internet channels including Cheddar, PopSugar, WPT, and People TV. The brand recently struck deals with major studios, including MGM and Warner Brothers, and has earned its place as a sought-after advertising outlet for marketers looking to reach cord cutters. Pluto TV has been called the “best cord-cutting app,” and Digital Trends said, “It doesn’t seem like Pluto TV will be going anywhere.” Uber vs Lyft: Battling for Supremacy HuluHulu is a paid subscription streaming service that offers both ad-supported and commercial-free subscription packages. It offers an extensive library of premium TV and film content, with options for live and on-demand channels and a slate of original series. Hulu secures some of the highest commercial pricing in the industry and is consistently sold out. A recent deal with The Walt Disney Company aims to give Hulu the flexibility afforded to its closest competitors, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Unlimited access to the Hulu streaming library is $7.99 per month; Hulu with Live TV costs $39.99 per month.Hulu has generated significant amounts of buzz with its original show “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which helped it earn critical acclaim, a dozen coveted Hollywood awards, and worldwide recognition for its original programming. In early 2018, Hulu reported that it had 17 million subscribers and, despite a revenue loss in 2017, was able to capture $1 billion in ad revenue — something that makes an irrefutable case for the shifting of advertising dollars toward OTT. RokuRoku has marked itself as a trailblazer in the world of OTT with its affordable hardware and easy-to-use interface. In addition to its devices, Roku offers a robust variety of ad-supported and subscription-based content channels. Roku’s streaming players connect directly to TVs, and the service can also be accessed by smart TVs with built-in Roku. The service offers access to more than half a million TV episodes and movies, as well as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Pluto TV, Google Play, Hulu, and the major four broadcast networks. Recently, Roku launched its own app called The Roku Channel, full of ad-supported movies and TV shows. While The Roku Channel itself is free, the streaming players start at a cost of $29.99 for the hardware.Roku went public in September 2017 after seeking an IPO valuation of $100 million. The bulk of the brand’s revenue comes from its Roku players, but it’s seen its customer lifetime value nearly double in a two-year span; it relies on a mix of streaming subscriptions, licensing partnerships, and advertising, all of which have led to brands migrating to Roku from traditional TV buys. The company has seen a number of competitors enter the player fray since its inception, but Fortune noted in 2017 that Roku “is doing better than Google and Apple,” thanks to its OS-agnostic device. This is just one of the many reasons advertising revenue is finding its way to Roku.Cutting the cord has earned its place in the mainstream, and brands are vying to influence the viewing habits of an ever-increasing OTT audience across the United States. These three OTT brands have all developed rich, intuitive platforms for CMOs to direct their ad spend and earn back their market share and sales. The numbers are in, and it’s evident that streaming stands to get a lot more lucrative — for both streaming companies and their advertisers.

By the end of 2017, more than 22 million people had dropped their cable or satellite TV providers; millions more have chosen not to sign up for cable or satellite TV services at all.A slew of recent industry reports have shown that Americans are actively in pursuit of new ways to consume entertainment. According to eMarketer, their reasons for cutting the cord are primarily based on factors related to price and convenience. eMarketer also projects that within the next three years, the number of people who have never subscribed to paid television services will equal the number of people who have abandoned it. All in all, a whopping one out of three Americans is expected to forgo cable or satellite as the primary source of content viewing by 2021.These trends present a challenge to brands and agencies. How do you reach the third of the audience no longer watching traditional TV?Don’t worry; it’s not all doom and gloom.

first_imgWe’ve previously covered offline editing and proxy workflows, but in this article, we’ll cover methods to make your 6K RAW editing more amicable.Although the Pocket 6K is budget and new user-friendly, the files the camera produces can be anything but. 6K BRAW media is a resource-heavy media that requires substantial processing power to play back.As a side note, when I started to initially film my review video (you can watch here), I decided to record in the highest constant bitrate quality possible. The files were so immense that the card Blackmagic supplied me wouldn’t even play back the media. I had to drop down to 8:1 to review what I’d shot.With that, it’s not going to be practical for most people to try and edit native 6K RAW files. This is especially true if you decide to add any sort of color grading or OFX effect, which requires more GPU processing. When the world was going crazy for cryptocurrency and there was a shortage of peripherals — especially graphic cards (GPUs) — we saw a rise in the price for many computer components. And, perhaps for the first time, it was cheaper to buy a pre-built custom PC than purchase the parts separately.I wanted a system that could handle 4K files at ease, and now I have one. But at 6K BRAW 3:1, I’m only moving at 17fps. And, even on the lowest recorded settings (12:1), I’m reaching 23fps. Perhaps usable to some extent, but not favorable when trying to edit.So, of course, we need to create edit-friendly files. We’ve covered offline editing and proxy workflows in the past, but in this article, we’re going to quickly skim over a few methods to make your 6k RAW editing a little more amicable.In theory, there are three methods we can use to do this in Resolve. However, we’re only going to focus on two. The first technique involves decreasing the resolution playback, which can be done in the Playback Menu under Proxy Mode. You can switch the playback from Half Resolution or to a Quarter Resolution.However, I’m going to say that if you have a low performing computer and are struggling to play back 6K in general, I’d suggest skipping this altogether. As noted by Uli Plank on the Blackmagic Forums:Red footage, a.k.a. R3D, for example, can be quite efficiently decoded at lower resolutions, due to its wavelet codec. DNG sequences, H.264, or BRAW (while the latter is easy on the CPU) don’t profit much from lower resolution since they need full decoding to produce an image.Ultimately, Resolve is still the original 6K BRAW file, and I’d bet money on Resolve pausing and dropping frames every so often.Realistically, you’re going to need to create a proxy file so you’re editing with less intensive media. There are two ways you can do this.Optimized MediaOptimized media is Resolve’s in-house system for taking your source clip and generating a proxy stored in Resolve’s cache folder.To optimize a clip, select the clip(s) that need to be optimized, right-click over a media file, and select Generate Optimized Media. Resolve will then create optimized media. If your system is unable to playback 6K RAW files, this process will likely take some time.When the clips have been optimized, there’s no visual indication to let you know that one clip is optimized and another is not. So, I suggest placing optimized media in a separate bin to keep track of the optimized media.Once Resolve generates the optimized media, make sure to select Use Optimized Media If Available on the playback menu. Likewise, for grading or zoomed-in analysis, you can flick between the optimized media and the source media by deselecting this option. As Resolve retains the link to the original files, the switch is instantaneous and involves no waiting.This should hopefully make the 6K BRAW files easier on your system. However, if you find that the generated media is still acting sluggish, you likely haven’t adjusted the Optimized Media and Cache settings in Project Settings>Master Settings. In this panel, you can set the parameters for how you wish your media to be optimized.I’d love to give you a one-for-all setting to go to, but that’s going to depend entirely on what your system is comfortable with. But, as a starting point, I’d look at using the DNxHR 444 codec.However, the optimized media is generated within Resolve’s database system, meaning you wouldn’t be able to move the files to a different NLE. More importantly, if you change the camera BRAW data, the optimized media will be discarded and you have to generate optimized media again (which can be a lengthy process).Therefore, the other — and honestly most suggested method — would be to transcode your media into edit-friendly files traditionally.Transcode MediaThere are two ways you can do this. First, when in the media page or media pool, select the 6K BRAW clips you’d like to be transcoded, then choose File>Media Management. The following pop-up menu should appear.First, select Clips (from Entire Project, Timelines, and Clips), then Transcode.You can now select the Render Destination, and as before, you need to set the transcoding options to render the 6K RAW files out as edit-friendly files. Again, DNxHR would be a good starting point, depending on your machine. Although, most computers should be able to play a 1080p DNxHR file, and if it can’t, well, time for a new PC.Alternatively (but I would suggest the above option), you could also add all the 6K RAW clips that you need to transcode to a new timeline. Head to the delivery page to transcode. When on the delivery page, there are two specific checkboxes you need to tick. First, you need to make sure you select Render Individual Clips. Secondly, on the File tab, you need to choose Filename Uses Source Name. Then, once again, select an edit-friendly preset and render your media.With both methods, you’ll need to import the proxy files back into Resolve. Then, before color grading and/or delivery, relink/replace the proxy clips with the 6K raw files, and you’d have sidestepped a lot of stuttered playbacks and huffing.Looking for more tips on working with DaVinci Resolve?

first_imgPredicting winners at a Grand Slam is an easy job. It is almost like the jobs of psephologists who for hours rattles about all kinds of poll data and then gives hints. In the end, what the outcome is could be just the other way. If you want to do anything like that for the men’s singles final between Rafael Nadal and new World No.1 Novad Djokovic at Wimbledon on Sunday, it’s not tough. The tennis fraternity is basically divided between the Roger Federer fans and the Nadal fans. And now that Djokovic has dramatically changed the equations in 2011 with his ability to beat any player, it would be tempting to think he can pull of this one as well against Nadal. On Saturday, at a mandatory press conference, Djokovic was a bit puzzled why he had to be answering questions. “It feels strange to do a press conference before the match, it’s usually after the match. But you know, I’m excited it’s another day to come before the match,” said Djokovic. Unlike Maria Sharapova, who said she was going to sleep a day before the final, Djokovic detailed his plans well – get in practice and then relax. Head to head: Rafael Nadal and Novak DjokovicIt is these qualities, getting in practice and staying cool, which will help Djokovic as he takes on Nadal on Centre Court. Rafa, as he is popularly known, has a larger than life image in this part of the world. And he has been talking about how big it is to be at Wimbledon.That’s something Djokovic can’t say, as this is his maiden Wimbledon final, after he defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in a big match on Friday. “I’m ready for the long rallies against Nadal. This is going to be best of five and I do feel motivated,” said Djokovic and added that Nadal was “physically stronger.” If you had heard the last two Nadal press conferences, he would have fooled you into thinking his foot injury is so serious, yet local anesthetics work on it. Even against Andy Murray in the semifinal, at one point Nadal had a bad fall. But he was back on his feet so quickly. If people think Nadal will have problems in court coverage in the final, they are fooling themselves. Yes, one interesting bit of statistics is how Djokovic has beaten Nadal four times already this year. But that doesn’t mean going into his maiden Wimbledon final, Djokovic can be relaxed. “The last couple of years, I have been losing to Federer and Nadal at the top level. Now I feel I can win the matches against those big guys. I have matured as a player and I feel that on court,” says Djokovic.So where does that leave Nadal? “We must congratulate Djokovic for his No.1 ranking because what he did in the first part of the season was really fantastic. He was really unbelievable,” said Nadal. Reminded about his flawless tennis against Murray in the semi-final, Nadal summed it up in one sentence: “I probably played my best match this year here.” As one who signs paeans about the importance of Wimbledon, Nadal really loves this place. He was quick to remind the media how in the past Spaniards never cared about Wimbledon. “I never thought I gonna play five finals. This is fantastic news for me and my country,” says the defending champion. Nadal then talked about match strategy. “I have to play with intensity on Sunday and I have to be aggressive. That’s what I am gonna try,” he said. Was grass not a better surface for him than Djokovic? “No, I don’t have an advantage here more than clay. I am a better player on clay than grass,” he said. And then Nadal was asked, if he was not better than Djokovic on grass? “You know what? Playing two semi-finals and now the final, probably he’s not a bad player on grass, too. That’s my feeling,” added Nadal. Just as TV viewers get confused by what psephologists say, Nadal and Djokovic have left us guessing. But one thing is for sure, this has to be a head-banger’s ball!advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgHouston walk on scholarships awarded at team film session.YouTube/UHAthleticsWe can’t get enough of videos of college football walk-ons getting awarded scholarships. The life of a walk-on can be pretty thankless at times, especially when players have to balance schoolwork and all of the rigors of Division I athletics, without the benefit of a scholarship. A full ride can be life-changing for walk-ons and their families, and these videos always show how important those guys are to their teammates.On Wednesday, Houston head coach Tom Herman awarded two walk-ons—senior tight end Hayden Daniels and senior cornerback Tyler White—with scholarships for their final years. Herman was a bit tricky about it, opening by getting on the walk-ons who hadn’t yet had holds lifted by the university, chastising the group for a lack of “urgency,” before surprising the pair with their full rides. Daniels appeared in four games for the Cougars last year, while White played in all 13 games, registering 12 total tackles and fielding a crucial onside kick that helped spark Houston’s 35-34 comeback win over Pittsburgh in the Armed Forces Bowl.last_img read more
