Say No to Nielsen

You can find them on Twitter at @alexjblum and @awolk. TV is a hugely successful $60 billion industry. It’s also built on a jury-rigged measurement system that’s a bit of a joke and needs to be replaced for the potential of the modern media world to be fully realized. Nielsen ratings have admittedly come a long way from handwritten diaries, but they’ve still become antiquated as our viewing experience shifts from broadcast television to over-the-top services like Netflix and Hulu. This sea change of Internet meshing with TV presents a golden opportunity for anyone with the smarts to step up and figure out a better way to mine the resulting avalanche of consumer-engagement data that is now becoming available.

The potential offered by these consumer-driven changes outweighs sticking with the old way of doing things because “that’s how it’s always been done.” Video and the Mind: In a Sea of Web Video Content, Let Your Mood Dictate What to Watch. At VideoMind, we're always thinking about video—and how media companies and brands use it to entertain, engage and communicate with audiences.

Video and the Mind: In a Sea of Web Video Content, Let Your Mood Dictate What to Watch

But we're taking a step back to look at how video affects brain development and cognition—what happens behind the eyeballs, in other words. This is the first installment of an occasional series. Read the first here. The Internet is a sea of videos. With eight years of content uploaded to YouTube each day, it's hard to find what's interesting or relevant to you. As it stands, content recommendation engines are just beginning to live up to their full potential -- there’s plenty of room for improvement. The media company’s research and development team is exploring beyond rigid TV and movie genres.

[I]f the BBC archive is ever to be made available to the public, we’re going to need some help finding what we want. For now, the BBC envisions this classification system to analyze video and audio features such as luminosity, laughter and motion. Research and Development: An Affective Interface for Mood-Based Navigation. Sometimes we need 'cheering up', 'calming down' or 'a bit of excitement'.

Research and Development: An Affective Interface for Mood-Based Navigation

Whether we notice it or not, we use affective (i.e. mood-based) language pervasively in life. Yet when we browse for media, we find content categorised into rigid, traditional genres, with searching restricted to factual metadata such as title or director. There is little allowance for relative scales or subjectivity. The Multimedia Classification project in Archives Research is attempting to address this by answering the question of how we can use mood as a meaningful navigation tool.

It certainly isn’t a feckless pursuit: if the BBC archive is ever to be made available to the public, we’re going to need some help finding what we want. So how does it work? We're currently in the process of researching how users might interact with this mood data. TV's Digital Age Will (Truly) Arrive In 2017. Only One-Third of TV-Watching in the U.S. Is Realtime. Cord-cutting may be an unproven myth, but new research suggests that people’s television habits are changing in a way you wouldn’t expect: Only a third of all television viewing nowadays happens “live,” without the Internet, TiVo or some other form of recording or time shifting.

Only One-Third of TV-Watching in the U.S. Is Realtime

The claim comes from DVR company TiVo, who you could call an interested party when it comes to time-shifting programming. TiVo reports that among its users, only 38% of television viewing happens in realtime, with that number falling to just 27% for viewers who also use Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus and other online viewing outlets.

Our source for some of this data, Nielsen, measured the viewing habits of people doing web streaming to laptops and desktops but does not include data on streaming to devices. The vast majority of Netflix streaming is to TVs via devices such as XBOX, Wii, Boxee, and Roku which is why they are not included.

Cette croissance touche également les jeunes adultes - âgés de 15 à 24 ans - : les jeunes Anglais regardent 14 minutes de plus la télévision que l'an passé, les jeunes américains, 5 minutes supplémentaires et les jeunes Français 3 minutes de plus. Tous les genres télévisuels ont tiré profit de cette augmentation et tout particulièrement les films. A l'occasion de l'une des plus grandes conférences organisées lors du Festival de Cannes le 15 mai par L'Observatoire européen de l'audiovisuel (OEA), Jacques Braun, Vice-Président d'Eurodata TV Worldwide a déclaré : « les films font leur grand retour à la télévision et ont retrouvé un nouveau souffle, grâce au développement de la TNT et aux nouvelles chaînes lancées ces 2 dernières années. »

What is #TV, Anyway? I saw a a tweet this morning about #hashtags being rolled out on screen across television shows, which reminded me of this little film and decklet I threw together a while back. The basic point I attempt to beat to death is that, as we've discussed before, media is one system now, which allows us to reverse the polarity, and that media definitions are assemblages of things, or, to put it another way, 'TV' may not be what we think it is, and even if it was, it probably isn't anymore.

Y'know? And how there are lots of different viewpoints as to what constitutes the right consumption experience - see what David Lynch says in the video about watching movies on your internetphone - and where the boundaries lie, but that in general 'TV' benefits greatly from backchannels, extensions and participation. [No I don't have permission to use any of these pieces of film. If you have the power to give that permission, and this makes you sad, let me know.

Of course, that's also part of the point. Forget About Google And Apple, The Future Of Television Is Facebook. One of the big dreams of the tech set is the idea of internet television. Once your TV is connected to the internet, you'll be able to get all your internet and TV content in one place. And, like the internet usually does, internet TV will cut out all those meddlesome middlemen like TV networks and cable companies, and life will be grand.
