IFA: Presse- oder Musik-Tag?

ZUM Donnerstag Letzte Bearbeitung: 13. September 2013 um 10 Uhr 46 Minuten

 

Da ist Musik drin:

Heute ist Helge Schneider ab 19:00 Uhr auf der Bühne des Sommergartens.

Am 6. September: PHILIPP POISEL & Band

Am 7. Septermber: die Neuen DeutschPoeten

Am 8. September: UNHEILIG

Am 9. September: HEINO

Jetzt fehlt nur der "Volks-IFA"-Segen der Bild-Zeitung...

Aber: ES GIBT ALTERNATIVEN - und was für welche:
DIE BERLIN-MUSIC-WEEK [1] vom 4. bis 8. September 2013 - sozusagen als regionaler Popkom-Ersatz mit dem First We Take Berlin Showcase Festival am 4. und 5. September 2013 dem WORD! Programm u.v.a.m. [2]

Oder aber: Ab nach Potsdam Zum M100 Sanssouci Colloqium [3]

Das Thema dieser ganztägigen und vollständig englischsprachigen Veranstaltung:
„Are the Media destroying Europe?” („Zerstören die Medien Europa?“) [4]

Oder: die Teilnahme an den Pressekonferenz-Zyklen, die traditionell diesen Messe-Vortag einleiten, heute mit einer Veranstaltung der Deutschen Telekom:

Hier ist viel von LTE und LTE + die Rede, und dass es alsbald in Ballungszentren die Möglichkeit gibt, downloads mit Geschwindigkeiten von bis zu 150 MB/sec zur Verfügung stellen zu können

Auch im Bereich der Tarife sei viel in Bewegung, sowohl für Neu- aber auch für die Bestandskunden. Details dazu aber nur auf Anfrage. [5]

Im Verlauf der Präsentation wird auch klar, warum RTL aus der DVB-T-Distribution ausgestiegen ist: alle Programme aus der Gruppe werden nunmehr als HD-Angebote im Telekom-Entertain-Paket eingespeist.

Das Ziel: 3 Millionen Kunden bis 2015. Interessant: auch nach dem Aufschalten der SKY-Angebote bleiben die Liga-Total-Kunden der DTAG bei diesem Anbieter. Im Gegenteil: 80% dieser Kunden buchten bei SKY noch andere Angebote dazu.

Und mit dem "Entertain-to-go"-Angebot soll das mobile Fernsehen zumindest im Wirkungsbereich des eigenen Haus-Wireless-LAN möglich werden. Dabei soll die "Entertain-Controll-App2 nicht nur die Steuerung der Programme erlauben, sondern auch die der Social-TV-Anwendungen.

Weiters werden neue Partnerschaften angekündigt:
— mit EVERNOTE Premium, und das für ein Jahr kostenlos
— mit SPRINGER, um Bild+ und DIE WELT samt Abrechnung über die Telekom-Rechnung. Und auch das zunächst kostenlos.
— PATH Premium, als alternatives soziales Netzwerk mit einem Angebot für 12 Monate kostenlos (die Kooperation mit twitter und facebook bleibt bestehen)
— mit der Amazon-Service-Sweet, incl. die dortigen Download-Angebote.

Gar nicht (mehr) zur Sprache kommt die MobileTV-App der Deutschen Telekom AG.
Aufgefallen ist sie dadurch, dass auf dem eigenen bei der Telekom erworbenen Samsung Galaxy Tablet eine Aktualisierung für diese App angeboten wird. Auf die dieses Angebot wir aber nach der Lektüre der ersten vorliegenden Erfahrungsberichte [6] verzichtet.

Oder, für alle die, die nicht an der Eröffnungsgala teilnehmen können, werden oder wollen, gibt es ein Panoptikum der folgenden Firmenpräsentationen bei den ShowStoppers @ IFA 2013 :

[2In die Akkreditierungsseite zu dieser Veranstaltungen wurde folgenden Eintrag vermerkt:

"DaybyDay ISSN 1860-2967" erscheint seit nunmehr 10 Jahren online - jeden Tag! Und wir finden es gut, dass sich neben der IFA andere Strömungen und Themen etablieren: So wie wir es vor vielen, vielen Jahren selbst versucht haben in Szene zu setzen: mit "AFI" - "All Freaks Invited". [...]

[3... im Jahr 2005 initiiert von einer Gruppe führender Persönlichkeiten aus Medien und Politik, ist ein einzigartiges Forum, das Europas tonangebende Redakteure, Kommentatoren und Medienbesitzer (Print, TV und Internet) sowie öffentliche Schlüsselfiguren zusammen bringt, um die Rolle und den Einfluss der Medien in europäischen und internationalen Angelegenheiten zu untersuchen. Die Konferenz hat sich zu einem bedeutenden jährlichen Treffen entwickelt, das in den historischen Anlagen von Schloss Sanssouci in Potsdam stattfindet. Als ein moderner Ost-West Brückenbauer fördert das Colloquium Medienbeziehungen und deckt nicht nur Unterschiede, sondern auch Gemeinsamkeiten in den Aufgaben der Medien verschiedener Kulturen und Regionen auf.

[4In einer intensiven, kontroversen Debatte gehen sechs Top-Journalisten aus verschiedenen europäischen Ländern der Frage nach, welchen Einfluss die Medien auf den europäischen Integrationsprozess und die nachbarschaftlichen Verhältnisse haben, wer warum welche Position einnimmt und welche Rolle die Art der politischen Kommunikation in diesem Zusammenhang spielt.
Moderiert wird die Debatte von dem bekannten britischen Moderator Tim Sebastian, Erfinder der legendären BBC-Interviewreihe „Hardtalk“ und Moderator der „New Arab Debates“ bei Deutsche Welle TV
.

[5Frage: gibt es die jetzt angekündigte "Family-Card" auch für kleine Journalistenbüros, die die Dienste nicht als Geschäftskunden einkaufen wollen?

[6Maximilian Reith am 21.07.2013 mit einem Samsung Galaxy S3:
"Die App wird immer schlechter. Erst konnte man sie nicht mehr auf Root-Geräten, sowie Tablets benutzten... und nun auch nicht mehr über Hdmi am Fernseher anschließen!!! Was soll denn noch alles verboten werden?"

Ein Google-Nutzer am 01.09.2013 mit einem HTC One X:
" Ich find’s sehr gut, wenn ich mal nicht Zuhause bin, kann ich es trotzdem gucken. [...] Ohne bessere Qualität kann ich mir das nicht mit Freunde angucken! [...]

Patrick Springer am 01.09.2013 mit einem Samsung Galaxy Nexux
" Bekomme direkt beim Start die Meldung, die App sei nur auf Geräten mit Original-Firmware des Herstellters zu nutzern. Habe das Gerät nicht gerootet und benutze Android 4.3 mit einem T-Mobile Vertrag. Bis vor ein paar Wochen lief die App noch ohne Probleme."
