Cloud Distributes
Great to hear that Tata has over 1 million square feet of data centers across a number of different locations and that they have built their own cloud-based facilities.

"In 2020, 22-25% of all households will have a UHD viewing experiences." It will be interesting to see if that projection comes to fruition.

Cloud contributes
"The cloud contributes, the cloud distributes". Interesting quote from Morris. Interesting that broadcasters are now looking at fiber-based network providers to deliver the same services as satellite providers.

Re: Cloud distributes and contributes
@dcawrey, I agree. I would pay for UHD versus VR. Most viewers right now just want to watch content, they are not concerned about a virtual experience.

Re: gambling apps
@Mike Robuck, good point. I agree. It probably will not work as well in the U.S.

Not great for small-scale commercial space launch industry
Geosynchronous satellites have been running up against the "footprint problem" (signal spread out too much on its way to 35,786 km) and the "latency problem" (round trip of at least 71,572 km = almost a quarter second of incurable delay, longer for more distant points).  So the satcom folks have been looking at the idea of constantly replaced low-altitude microsats -- lots and lots of them, networked, constantly swapping jobs as the world whizzes by below them. See, for example, "Direct Satellite Internet Makes Gains," by me, less than 2 years ago. This in turn would demand lots of little-rocket flights and multiple satellite delivery tech, which they'd really like to develop for many other reasons -- but low level drect satellite networks were going to pay for most of it.

Well, plus ca change, etc. Doesn't look like Earth is going to be surrounded by belts of tens of thousands of beachball-sized comsats, only about 300 km up, after all!

@afwriter I would say Yes, for now VR is for gamers, but things do change and consumers could embrace VR...

Re: Cloud distributes and contributes
I would tend to agree, I think most people can see the Value in UHD where VR still seems like it is just for video games.

gambling apps
"multiscreen synchronization which is useful for gambling apps and for social media interaction," that's interesting. Not sure it would fly here in the US, especailly related to sports, but could be big elsewhere.

Re: Cloud distributes and contributes
UHD is at least a bridge to VR. I still think people are going to struggle with VR because its too immersvice, but UHD is taking a well-known experience and enhancing it. Much better service in my opinion. People will readily pay for that.
