    first_img 4 Comments   Share   Progress for BucannonThe Cardinals have been without dollar backer Deone Bucannon for the first two games — and the entire training camp. But he’s making progress, and there’s a growing sense he might even be ready to step in on Monday.“He’s getting real close,” Arians noted. “He looked good today. He was flying around.”If he is able to go, Bucannon would give Arizona a versatile presence to utilize in the middle of the defense, though Arians said he would be on a snap count. Still, just having him work into the rotation would ease some of the pressure off the other linebackers, including rookie Haason Reddick.Peterson vs. BryantThe Monday Night Football crew will likely be zeroing in on one matchup, in particular, this week. Patrick Peterson has more than established himself as one of the truly elite shutdown corners in the league, and he’ll be facing one of the NFL’s most skilled, physical and aggressive receivers in Dallas wideout Dez Bryant.“Two great players,” Arians explained. “Pro Bowl players, All-Pro players going at each other all day long. So, neither one of them is going to back off. That’s for sure.” Ultimately, that might mean nothing. The Cardinals have an extra day to prepare for their home opener on Monday, and Nelson could easily be ready to go. If he is, he’ll resume his role as a dangerous deep threat and Arizona’s best hope for any semblance of a quick-strike offense.If this lingers, however, the Cards could be facing yet another significant obstacle early on in the 2017 season. Last week’s injury report looked far too extensive for a team that had only played one game at the time. And while they did manage to finally knock off the Colts in overtime on Sunday, the absence of guys like Brown, Humphries, David Johnson and Mike Iupati was very noticeable.One of the main players who stepped up was Nelson. His performance — five catches for 120 yards and a touchdown — was a major catalyst for Arizona’s fourth-quarter rally. Nelson now leads the team with 10 receptions and 163 yards through two weeks. He also has two of the Cardinals’ three offensive scores this year, and has found the end zone nine times in his last 11 outings, dating back to 2016.Again, this could be nothing. He could play Monday and everything could be fine. But when an emerging playmaker whose game is predicated on blazing speed has any sort of hamstring issue, it’s at least worth monitoring. Top Stories With his team trailing so quickly, Elliott finished the day with just nine carries for eight yards. And the Dallas offense, as a whole, looked lost while trying to rally for most of the game. The Cardinals would love to put the Cowboys in a similar situation at University of Phoenix Stadium on Monday. TEMPE, Ariz. — When Bruce Arians addressed the media on Thursday afternoon, his injury update seemed pretty uneventful.“The only people that did not practice were John Brown and D.J. Humphries,” Arizona’s head coach explained. “Everybody else was limited. A very, very spirited practice, an excellent practice.”On the surface, that looks pretty predictable. Both Brown and Humphries were likely to miss the Monday Night showdown with the Dallas Cowboys anyway. But when the injury report was released a short while later, J.J. Nelson was revealed as one of those others that was limited with a hamstring issue.

(AP Photo/Michael Conroy)center_img Opposing teams typically shy away from Peterson’s side of the field, but Bryant is such a big part of the Cowboys’ offense that they might not have a choice but to challenge him at least a few times.“Pat’s been doing this for 10 years now, guarding No. 1 receivers,” Tyrann Mathieu pointed out. “So he’s excited about it. It’s going to be fun. Going to be a fun matchup.”Quick startEven though the Cardinals never seemed to truly get going in Week 1, they did jump out to an early 10-0 lead vs Detroit. The same could not be said this past Sunday though, as Arizona carried just three points into the fourth quarter.“Starting faster,” Larry Fitzgerald answered, when asked what the main keys to success will be for his club in Week 3. “You know, being able to get a good running game, a good flow, a good balance to our offense earlier and often. Being able to have those sustained drives where we’re executing on those third-and-shorts. Things like that.”Grabbing an early lead is always important, but it could be vital this week with the nation watching. Dallas sped out to a 16-0 lead over New York in Week 1, then leaned on Ezekiel Elliott to essentially run the Giants right into the ground. Last week, however, Denver was able to jump all over the Cowboys, building a 21-7 lead in the second quarter and never looking back in a 42-17 win.

  • Industry standards body the MPEG Industry Forum M

    first_imgIndustry standards body the MPEG Industry Forum (MPEGIF) has been wound up, with all remaining assets being passed to the Open IPTV Forum (MPEGIF).The body formed in 2000 with the aim of promoting emerging compression standards that became known as MPEG-4 Part 10, also known as AVC and H.264. The organisation said in a statement, “Our efforts drove in many directions including many informational events and, crucially, a series of important interoperability test rounds combined with some very active tech-lists. Slowly but surely H.264 gained mind share and then market share and today is clearly the dominant codec of choice replacing MPEG-2 around the world.”In March, it was announced that the OIPF and MPEGIF would merge, with the assets of the MPEG Industry Forum being merged into the OIPF.“We would like to take this opportunity to wholeheartedly thank everyone who has contributed to the Forum over these past ten years,” the MPEGIF said.last_img read more

  • Globally 25 of consumers are watching paidOTT s

    first_imgGlobally, 25% of consumers are watching paid-OTT services like Netflix, with an additional 27% planning to subscribe in late 2015, according to new research.The Paywizard-commissioned Research Now study claims that people aged over 45 are 2.4 times less likely to watch paid OTT than millennials.However, the report, titled ‘The fight is on: Winning the pay-OTT battle’, also claims that 45% of new pay OTT subscribers will cancel within six months.“Where pay-OTT provides the satisfaction of content on demand and fosters the notion of binge viewing, there is the risk of dissatisfaction if demand is not fulfilled. Investing in rich content, for example, could persuade 53% of consumers to stay with a service, or operators could address the fact that a quarter of subscribers cancel because ‘it’s too expensive’,” according to the study.“With pay-OTT subscribers free from long binding contracts, operators now need to switch from yearly planning to more real-time analysis enabling them to react to trending events.”The online survey was conducted in late 2015 and was completed by 5,960 consumers across Australia, Brazil, Germany, Singapore, the UK and US.last_img read more
