Cynopsis: DIGITAL

 

01/18/10

Good morning, it’s Monday, January 18, 2010, and this is your first early morning digital briefing.

The earthquake in Haiti has proved to be another galvanizing event for the use of online, social and mobile media as users around the world turn to their computers and phones to both learn about the tragedy and lend a helping hand. Twitter posts have proven to be the leading source of discussion, according to a Nielsen analysis, followed by online video, blogs and discussion boards. Text-based giving spurred through tweets and retweets, available from multiple relief organizations including the American Red Cross and promoted via partners like MGive, are yielding record results. Mobile giving had surpassed $10 million through Friday mostly in increments of $5 and $10, according to the Mobile Giving Foundation. Social media gamer Zynga has even added virtual giving items across its top games FarmVille, Mafia Wars and Zynga Poker. Zynga’s users raised $1.2 million for Haiti through Thursday purchasing virtual social goods, according to the company.
 

~ MULTIPLATFORM CONTENT NEWS ~

 
AT&T announced a major multiscreen distribution agreement with NBC to bring Winter Olympics coverage to AT&T Wireless and U-verse TV customers via IPTV and broadband. Coverage includes:

  • Mobile coverage via AT&T Mobile TV and MobiTV, as well as exclusive live video coverage from the Vancouver Games
  • On demand content including a daily wrap-up of the best events and Team USA interviews and features of U.S. Olympic Team athletes
  • Downloadable interactive widgets from NBCOlympics.com will feature the latest news, photos and videos and allowing users track medals for the top five countries

 
CNN.com says last Thursday, two day after the Haitian earthquake, was its 4th busiest ever in terms of video streams served (8.4 million, sourcing Omniture.) CNN is relying on reporting from more 40 staffers currently in the region as well as iReport submissions. iReport, which received more than 7,000 submissions through Friday, has put together a database to try to connect people with family, friends and loved ones in Haiti.
 

~ TECHNOLOGY DEALS, MERGERS AND SKIRMISHES ~

 
The Recording Industry Association of America called on the FCC to avoid adopting strict net neutrality rules that would limit broadband providers’ ability to address illegal online file sharing, according to comments filed with the FCC last week. ISPs should have authority to implement anti-piracy measures that deter illegal downloading and enable legal music services to flourish, the RIAA said.
 
Vodafone became the latest carrier to offer the iPhone to its customers in the UK (Orange lost its exclusive contract with Apple 4 months ago) and the company sold 50,000 handsets during the first day of sales, per The Guardian.
 
Circa Pictures and Prod. Co, Intl., Inc of Beverly Hills have partnered with Texas-based Imagine Media to provide producers with a new means to transfer all motion picture formats (Video, 8mm, 16mm, 35mm, and any product digitally stored in Standard Definition) to true 2k/BluRay quality HD. The technology will demoed at the Circa Pictures booth at NATPE later this month.
 

~ TRENDS, RESEARCH, ETC.  ~

 
The Tiger Woods mess proved to be a gift that kept on giving for TMZ.com, helping to make Dec. a record month for the celebrity site. TMZ recorded 11.4 million U.S. unique users, a 28%
increase over the prior month, according to comScore Media Metrix.

~ GADGETS & APPS ~

 
T-Mobile has recruited Eric Clapton to promote the new 3G Fender version of the myTouch handset, which comes preloaded with popular Android apps Guitar Solo and Musical Light, along with many of Clapton’s classic hits. A new app from doubleTwist will also enable users to manage and synch their music from their PC to the phone, integrating with iTunes and other music management software.
 
If all the awards coverage on TV isn’t enough for you, AT&T‘s new Film Awards Interactive App for the iPhone (also available on U-verse TV), provides extensive info on award-nominated films and stars including bios, filmographies, trailers and past awards.
 

~ EXECUTIVE MOVES ~

 
Digital media executive Scott Clark has joined Adconion as Director, West Coast Sales. Based out of Adconion’s Santa Monica, CA headquarters, Scott will help agencies and brand marketers tap into online video for their campaigns, including branded entertainment and original programming.
 


~ WEBSITE OF THE DAY ~

 
Much like TV networks that replicate successful show formats, social media sites continue to try and learn from each other how to build out their audience and spread their influence online. Taking a page from Facebook’s hugely successful Facebook Connect program, Twitter is launching a new set of tools that allow developers to integrate Tweet and Retweet functionality directly into their sites. The new software will allow sites to authenticate users, pull data and then publish back to Twitter, according to TechCrunch. Meanwhile Facebook began testing a new retweet style feature it calls “via,” allowing you to share an article, link or posting you stumbled upon from a friend. When clicking on the share button, users now see the “via (friends’ name)” line in the sharing dialog.
