Content Insider #331 - Power of Choice
NAB was even more lively this year because so many people were scrambling. Cable folks were bristling that they're still the gateway to the home TV. Rusting big iron producers in the Central Hall were saying how important they were. South Hall was totally busy with people who understood the industry is rapidly changing to OTT/IPTV and it was already 4K ready. Everyone wanted to control the consumer but he/she saw the fiber pipe to the home as a way out of paying for 100s of channels they never or hardly ever watched. More importantly people wanted their content on their terms at their times. Freedom of choice is something we all want...right? Read More

HTC Allows Devs To Tap Into The Power Of The One's Duo Camera
HTC Allows Devs To Tap Into The Power Of The One's Duo Camera
The HTC One (M8) brought with it a load of new camera features, including its unique Duo Camera setup on its back side. Now, the handset maker is opening up the code that powers the pair in a SDK preview for third-party devs. This means that apps can be designed specifically for the M8's cameras with DualLens and DimensionPlus APIs baked right in. In other words, developers will get their hands on that bokeh-style refocusing and multi-angled shot selection in addition to depth maps from the pair of cameras. Of course, only time will tell how eager app makers are to latch on to HTC's smartphone snapshooting tricks, but at least now they'll have the necessary tools to do so. Read More

Internal Samsung Document: We Need To Beat Apple To Survive
The second U.S. Apple vs Samsung patent trial marches on, with the South Korean giant now making its case in the San Jose, California, court. Samsungs counsel has already called up several witnesses who testified that the company has not been influenced in any way by Apple or the iPhone. However, internal Samsung documents that have been called into evidence by Apples attorneys tell a different story. While Samsung Americas former CEO Dale Sohn took the stand, internal presentations and emails were uncovered, revealing Samsungs concerns with its main competitor. In a presentation from April 2012, Sohn wrote that “beating Apple is no longer merely an objective. It is our survival strategy.” Read More

Pfister, Depp Reunite For Sci-fi 'Transcendence'
Pfister, Depp Reunite For Sci-fi 'Transcendence'
For more than a decade, cinematographer Wally Pfister brought director Christopher Nolan's cinematic visions to life. Now, he's the one calling the shots. His directorial debut, the new sci-fi mystery "Transcendence", has many elements of a Nolan blockbuster — eye-popping visual effects, a mind-bending story and an A-list lead in Johnny Depp. All of those things translate into high expectations for Pfister, who jokingly likens his newly christened director's seat to an "electric chair." In the film releasing Friday, the mind of Depp's terminally ill scientist, Will Caster, is uploaded into a computer after his death, spawning an eerily unruly machine. At the heart of the story is the disrupted relationship of Will and his wife, Evelyn, played by Rebecca Hall. Read More
