The European Commission today announced a new proposal that will require streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime to devote at least 20 percent of their libraries to European content, as part of an overhaul of existing broadcasting regulations. The Audiovisual Media Services Directive also requires streaming companies to prominently feature European titles on their websites, and enables member states to mandate that the companies contribute to the production of European films and TV shows. The plan was announced as part of a broader effort to create a “digital single market” across the European Union.

Lytro Brings Revolutionary Light Field Technology to Film and TV Production with Lytro Cinema
World’s First Light Field Solution for Cinema Allows Breakthrough Creative Capabilities and Unparalleled Flexibility on Set and in Post-Production
Lytro Cinema captures all the rays of light within a scene, providing a rich amount of Light Field data. Every pixel has color properties, directional properties, and its exact placement in space.
Lytro Cinema is defying the traditional physics of on set capture by virtualizing creative camera decisions. Infinite creative choices can be generated in post-production including unprecedented control over focus, perspective, aperture and shutter angle – recreating impossible shots.

Traditional TV viewing is continuing to fall, with the greatest declines among the under-45 age groups, according to figures from Ofcom’s latest Communications Market Report.
In 2014 the average number of minutes of broadcast TV, watched on a TV set, was 220 minutes per person (aged 4 and above) per day; 11 minutes less than in 2013. The fall, of 4.9% year on year, represents the second consecutive year of decline.
The decline was seen across all ages, but was more pronounced among the under-45 age groups, with the greatest proportional drop among children aged 4-15 (-12.4%), followed by the 25-34 group (-8.8%) and 35-44s (-8.0%). Viewing among the over-65s fell the least; by 0.3%.

We’ve decided to start over…
We’re starting with a clean slate and questioning everything on the site. If it isn’t integral to the experience, it’s going. If it’s important, we’re cleaning it up and making it better.
