BT Vision sets out its plans for a new look to televised rugby union

Category : Business

• Coverage will be more interactive and inclusive
• Lawrence Dallaglio aims to ‘decomplicate’ the game

The future shape of European club rugby remains shrouded in uncertainty but no one seems to have told BT Vision, the game’s proactive new broadcasters. Channel executives have made it clear they fully expect to broadcast top Heineken Cup games next year, heaping renewed pressure on European Rugby Cup organisers who have sold the TV rights to Sky.

Not only has BT Sport signed a £152m four-year deal to show Premiership and sevens rugby from September but it will also be broadcasting weekly games from France’s Top 14 competition. Lump it all together and there is no shortage of commercial muscle on their side. “Our view is that heading into 2014-15 we want to be part of that [European] competition, whatever that competition becomes,” said Grant Best, senior channel executive producer. “We did a deal for what we thought would involve that tournament.”

With ERC and Sky declining to back down, the European dispute is set to rumble on through the summer but a different look to televised rugby in England and France is already assured from next season. Lawrence Dallaglio, the first member of BT’s new rugby commentary team to be unveiled, believes there is huge scope to introduce rugby union to a new audience before the 2015 World Cup and is promising a more interactive edge to the coverage.

As well as using two vast studios at the Olympic Park broadcast centre, which will potentially allow live audiences to watch and participate in rugby shows, Dallaglio and his colleagues will attempt to demystify rugby’s darker areas and show the participants, referees included, in a more human light. Details of the pricing packages and the rest of the commentary line-up remain to be confirmed but BT Sport, which has also signed a multi-million deal to show Premiership football, stresses it wants to become “the home of club rugby”.

According to Dallaglio, one of the other key objectives will be to spread its net wider than it has traditionally done. “We need to get a little bit away from being seen as an elitist middle class sport and attract other viewers. The game has to de-complicate itself without losing the essence of what attracts traditional fans and put the viewers at the heart of the experience.”

Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello resigns

Category : Business

Exec takes blame for “shortcomings” in EA’s financial results. Previous CEO Larry Probst takes temporary charge. Current COO Peter Moore mooted as possible replacement

Video game giant Electronic Arts has announced that CEO John Riccitiello is to resign from the company. In a letter to chairman of the board Larry Probst, Riccitiello conceded that forthcoming quarterly results are likely to fall short of expectations and that he is, “100 percent accountable”. The industry veteran will step down on 30 March with Probst appointed as executive chairman until a permanent replacement is found.

After taking over as CEO in February 2007, Riccitiello has overseen a turbulent period in the history of EA. Stock value plunged amid the global financial meltdown of 2008, and has never recovered to the 2005 peak when shares were worth $70 each. Like most publishers in this sector EA has suffered due to a decline in retail software sales but has fought to improve its digital business, investing in social gaming companies such as Playfish and Popcap and extending its reach into Facebook and smartphone titles.

“The progress EA has made on transitioning to digital games and services is something I’m extremely proud of,” wrote Riccitiello in his resignation letter. “However, it currently looks like we will come in at the low end of, or slightly below, the financial guidance we issued in January, and we have fallen short of the internal operating plan we set one year ago. EA’s shareholders and employees expect better and I am accountable for the miss.”

In a statement issued today, Probst praised Riccitiello, but accepted the resignation: “We thank John for his contributions to EA since he was appointed CEO in 2007, especially the passion, dedication, and energy he brought to the company every single day. John has worked hard to lead the company through challenging transitions in our industry, and was instrumental in driving our very significant growth in digital revenues. We appreciate John’s leadership and the many important strategic initiatives he has driven for the company. We have mutually agreed that this is the right time for a leadership transition.”

Electronic Arts remains one of the major video game publishers, with titles like Battlefield, Fifa and Need For Speed, producing profitable annual iterations. However, the company has seen a series of public relations hiccups over the last year, many over charges for downloadable content on titles such as Mass Effect 3, as well as problems with its Origin game download service. Most recently, the release of the latest SimCity simulation has been marred by server failures and the instigation of an “always online” system which ensures purchasers cannot play the game if they don’t have a web connection.

Industry pundits are already touting current EA COO Peter Moore as a possible candidate for the vacant job. The Liverpool-born exec has been at EA since 2007 having served eventful stints at Microsoft and Sega.

DDD Group Plc. (DDDGY: OTCQX International) | DDD’s TriDef software powers 3D in Lenovo’s new range of Win8 3D PC products

Category : World News

DDD Group plc (AIM: DDD; OTCQX: DDDGY), the 3D solutions company, has renewed the license agreement for its TriDefTM 3D software with Lenovo, which will use the solution in its growing range of 3D PC products.

Lenovo is launching a full range of new Win8 All-In-Ones, desktops and monitors during Spring 2013. The TriDef 3D software will be supplied with Lenovo’s 3D PC products including the Lenovo All-In-One B3 and B5 series as well as the X and K series 3D Desktop models, to deliver 3D viewing using simple, lightweight polarized glasses, making it both cost-effective and convenient.

Following the success of its earlier 3D PC products, Lenovo launched a nationwide 3D PC and gaming promotion last November in China.

DDD’s TriDef 3D automatically converts DVD movies, video and photo files from 2D to 3D. It also allows over 750 of the latest 2D PC games to be played in 3D “off the shelf”, even if the game was not specifically developed for 3D. Over 100 of those games are popular Chinese titles.

Almost all 2D games that use DirectX 9, 10 or 11 can be played in 3D with TriDef. Its unique high-performance Power 3D render mode increases the frames per second, making games run smoother and faster while using less power. It is available in 37 languages.

The popularity of 3D gaming is driving sales of 3D PC products in China. Lenovo’s new Win8 3D products enable a huge number of the most popular Chinese and international games to be played in 3D.

To ensure plenty of content for 3D viewing, Lenovo also includes a selection of original, high definition 3D programming available from Yabazam.com, DDD’s 3D entertainment portal.

DDD will continue to receive quarterly royalty revenues from Lenovo based on the volume of 3D PCs shipped.

Chris Yewdall, chief executive of DDD, said:

“Lenovo is a powerhouse in the PC market and its choice to use TriDef 3D in its growing range of 3D products reinforces DDD’s position as a leader in the 3D market.”
