post IBC - 1

I had lots to do and actually still too busy, but I tried my best to find time for this introduction. This was my second IBC. After 2015, which was the first IBC of me & TVTechTR, I managed to come to Amsterdam as PRESS. This time I prefered to stay in Amsterdam, which was a good but expensive decision :) IBC, is a good event to see friends all over the world. It is also a good event, with the conference. But, the fair was not that attractive this year. There was no "killer application" this year. 4K is not going that fast, hence 8K is still too early to announce. SDI to IP conversion is not going as fast as expected. So there was no interesting.

IBC 2018

Dear colleagues, Thanks for your requests regarding IBC 2018.  Unfortunately my schedule is full. Hope to meet you at IBC 2019. I will try to find time for a quick visit to some of the stands, but as the conference is also full of interesting sessions, it seems that I will have really limited time. Chers collègues, Merci pour vos demandes concernant IBC 2018. Malheureusement, mon emploi du temps est complet. Au plaisir de vous rencontrer à l'IBC 2019. Je vais essayer de trouver le temps pour une visite rapide à certains des stands, mais comme la conférence est aussi pleine de sessions intéressantes, il me semble que j'aurai vraiment un temps limité. Kıymetli meslektaşlar, IBC 2018'de görüşme için ayırabildiğim zamanım doldu. Fırsat bulabilirsem hızlıca fuar alanını gezmeye çalışacağım. Konferans, çok ilgi çekici sunumlar ve oturumlarla dolu olduğu için vakit bulabilir miyim emin değilim. Gene de IBC 2018&#

figures of PayTV in Turkey, 2017 Q4

According to the data in the  report  of the Supreme Council of ICT, the market share of payTV is just 31%.  There are about 6,1M subscribers to payTV services in Turkey, where total number of households is assumed to be 20M. When we look at the distribution of technology; the payTV market is dominated by satellite, number of subscribers of CableTV is constant, IPTV is increasing but not as fast as expected. The OTT numbers are not available. I guess OTT is the main reason of slow progress in IPTV. 

What will 5G bring to broadcasting?

To be honest, I do not know the answer of the question: What will 5G bring to broadcasting? But, with the help of some documents, I will try to comment on this. It would be great if you also can share your opinions. "Broadcast", "unicast" and "multicast" are different ways of connection. Visualization is always better way of explaining: As you can see in the figure above, Unicast is point to single   point connection; Broadcast is point to all connection; Multicast is point to many points connection.  In broadcast connections, quality does not depend on the number of receiving units. So for serving same data to crowded receipents some kind of broadcast network should be used.  Mobile networks were providing unicast connections, i.e. from the base station to the receiver. Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service ( MBMS ) is a broadcast/multicast service in mobile networks, which is available since 2009 . But it has not been common
