in a news nutshell

in a news nutshell zurück zum Inhalt Call for European Heritage Stories The call for European Heritage Stories is one of the initiatives organised in the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, under the two slogans: “European Year of Cultural Heritage: The Art of Sharing” and “Our heritage: where the © European Heritage Days past meets the future”. Launched by European Heritage Days (EHD), the call for European Heritage stories is a pilot initiative intending to give a voice to the passionate individuals, organisations and associations to tell their story of Europe in the heritage they cherish. During this special year dedicated to cultural heritage, storytellers from EHD communities, EU Prize for Cultural Heritage/Europa Nostra Award winners and the European Heritage Label are invited to share their interpretation of a European heritage story and to explore the ways they understand their heritage site or heritage work corresponds with common European values. In addition to encouraging people to engage with Europe’s cultural heritage and collecting testimonies/stories and good practice on how communities understand the European dimension of local heritage, the call will give access to direct funding scheme for project proposals connected with the stories. Each community can submit up to three stories per call and up to one project proposal to be eligible for the grant procedure (maximum € 10 000) connected with one of the submitted stories. A European panel will chose a minimum of 10 European Heritage Stories for a grant to further develop their initiatives. Stories can be submitted until May 20, 2018. Grant applications will then be subject to an additional selection procedure, which will culminate in notification of grant awards in September 2018. www.facebook.com/ ehdays https://europa.eu/ cultural-heritage/ news/call-europeanheritage-storiesopens-today_en Bitmovin raises million in Series B funding Bitmovin, the world leader in online video infrastructure software, has raised million in Series B funding, led by Highland Europe, to help expand its global customer base of TV streaming providers, internet companies and social media companies. The funding will allow Bitmovin to scale its product R&D, field engineering and sales teams worldwide. Founded in 2013 by Stefan Lederer, Christopher Müller and Christian Timmerer, the privately owned company is based in San Francisco, CA, USA and Klagenfurt, Austria. Bitmovin solves complex video problems arising from the exponential growth in online video consumption through its video compression, playback and analytics APIs, making it possible to stream video in higher quality with less bandwidth, while preventing buffering and long start-up delays. Bitmovin’s customers include Sling, Periscope, The New York Times, ProSiebenSat.1, Red Bull Media House, FuboTV, RTL and iflix - collectively delivering billions of videos to consumers every day. The Series B investment round was led by Highland Europe, with participation from existing investors Atomico, Constantia New Business, Dawn Capital and YCombinator. This latest round brings the total investment in Bitmovin to million. The company also has experienced Silicon Valley veterans as angel investors, including the former Cisco CTO Ed Kozel, as well as the former VP of Engineering of Netflix, the founder of Gaikai, the founder of Drupal, and the founder of Unity3D. Bitmovin is also an alumnus of YCombinator, the leading global start-up accelerator. Bitmovin evolved out of the founders’ PhD research project and, in less than five years, has become a leader in next generation online video technology. The company has been at the forefront of all major developments in online video - from building the world’s first commercial adaptive streaming player to deploying the first containerised encoding service that runs on any cloud provider or in a data centre. Bitmovin’s founders co-created the MPEG-DASH video streaming standard that is used by Netflix and YouTube and delivers over 50 per cent of total internet traffic. Bitmovin’s technology stack provides critical API building blocks for content publishers as video consumption moves away from cable and satellite TV towards online video consumed on any device, at any time. Cisco predict that 80% of total internet traffic will be comprised of video by 2021. Recent innovations include being the first to support the AV1 video compression standard (the new royalty-free codec backed by Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Samsung) and adding artificial intelligence to video encoding. This has resulted in industry-wide recognition for Bitmovin, including being selected as Best of NAB by Streaming Media magazine and regularly appearing in Streaming Media’s “Top 100 companies that matter most in online video. “As the shift to streaming approaches a tipping-point and becomes the dominant format of consuming sports, news, movies and drama, Bitmovin is addressing an unprecedented market opportunity,” says Fergal Mullen, Partner at Highland Europe. “With video now critical to all social media platforms, as well as many more internet companies and increasingly corporates and educators, Stefan and his team are set to shape the future of video technology.” “Our mission is to provide the infrastructure layer for all video on the internet, a market that combines traditional media customers as well as Internet companies transforming into video companies,” said Stefan Lederer, CEO and co-founder at Bitmovin. “In our view, every internet company is going to be a video company in the future, which is a huge opportunity for Bitmovin to be an integral part of the internet infrastructure.” www.bitmovin.com MEDIA BIZ
