Intertrust and Sofia Digital Partner for Direct-to-TV Services https://moiteplanini.com/intertrust-and-sofia-digital-partner-for-direct-to-tv-services/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 10:46:25 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/intertrust-and-sofia-digital-partner-for-direct-to-tv-services/

Intertrust and Sofia Digital have partnered to offer Direct-to-TV services using ExpressPlay XCA

Operators looking to implement direct-to-smart TV applications for video services must combine the needs of legacy broadcast systems and modern broadband systems to help consumers increase subscriber retention and average revenue per user.

This means robust content security that meets the needs of Hollywood studios while minimizing the cost of emerging technology.

In light of these trends, the two highlight the benefits of new standards-based technologies such as HbbTV OpApp, which enable operators to build their own broadcast and OTT TV services directly from smart TVs with or without a set-top box.

According to Intertrust and Sofia Digital, Intertrust XCA Conditional Access is a suitable bridge technology for this transformation.

Built on the Marlin open standard for digital rights management, XCA is, in the couple’s words, “DRM in conditional access clothes,” meaning it’s compatible with DRM schemes while morphing into a transitional CA headend is implemented. In addition, the cost point for XCA is far lower than any other CA system. XCA is an easy choice for operators due to its availability on most televisions in Europe.

The two say they have delivered an XCA-enabled system for the German platform HD+ and look forward to announcing additional operator partners worldwide at a later date.

“We wanted to offer operators a cost-saving way to modernize their distribution platform through a simple API integration that gives consumers freedom of choice to seamlessly access content. By combining Sofia Digital HbbTV Application with Intertrust ExpressPlay XCA, operators can avoid the costly set-top box device and offer customers superior direct-to-TV services,” said Manas Matti, Managing Director, ExpressPlay.

“Sofia Digital has been at the forefront of developing HbbTV and operator applications. Our company is excited to partner with Intertrust and Smart TV manufacturers to create new ways to access premium broadcast and OTT content,” said Juho Mäyränpää, Sales Director at Sofia Digital.

EP about Gina & Ricky – Hollywood Life https://moiteplanini.com/ep-about-gina-ricky-hollywood-life/ Wed, 14 Sep 2022 19:24:00 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/ep-about-gina-ricky-hollywood-life/

The curtain has closed High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3, and nothing will ever be the same. Gina and Ricky finally faced their feelings, which led to an epic kiss on stage. That Frozen Documentary changed everything for the Wildcats, as did new characters like Jet and Maddox.

HollywoodLife Get an EXCLUSIVE Scoop from Creator/Showrunner Tim Federle about that groundbreaking Gina and Ricky moment and how one scene in Season 1 changed everything for these two. He also spoke about the future of EJ, the status of the original cast members returning for Uber’s fourth meta season, and more. Read our interview below:

Sofia Wylie

Ricky and Gina finally get their place in the spotlight, which is what I’ve been waiting for. When it comes to the two, they’ve obviously had chemistry for years, was romance always the plan for them?
Tim Federle: Well, the night of Homecoming changed everything for the characters, for me as a writer. Sofia Wylie was cast as Gina, and Gina was the villain of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series at a time when none of us knew if we would go beyond one season. We are against it Mandalorian. Will anyone look at this? Will anyone accept this show if they didn’t Ashley [Tisdale] and vanessa [Hudgens]? When Sofia Wylie leaned in and kissed Josch [Bassett]’s Cheek in the back of this orange bug that changed the entire series. So the short answer is I don’t know when I wrote the pilot if I thought Gina and Ricky were going to kiss in the Season 3 season finale, but from Homecoming onwards that was the plan.

Since Nini was involved at the time, I wasn’t sure if it was still the plan from that moment on [Ricky and Gina’s Homecoming kiss] because it has changed for me. I knew in that moment that there was more between them.
Tim Federle: Nini and Ricky will always have something very special. I’m in my office in Salt Lake City right now. I just came here to start season 4 and we disassembled some of the earlier sets to build new sets. There is a set piece in my office that someone from production brought over. They’re like, “Do you want that?” And it’s the “Nini loves Ricky” carved into the tree house. These two actors, these two characters, Ricky and Nini will always be special because they brought the series to life. I think a lot of adults look back on first love with a kind of nostalgia because there’s something so real about it. It’s a bit like what parents describe when you have a child and suddenly it’s like an extra chamber in your heart. I think there will always be a chamber in Ricky’s and Nini’s hearts that only the other occupies, but Gina has a way of making hearts beat faster. I’m looking forward to these two characters.

Joshua Basset

There was a slow burn between Gina and Ricky. I love a good slow burn. But I also want to add that Josh’s performance this season was just next level. All his feelings were conveyed only through looks. I thought he was brilliant.
Tim Federle: We had something of a creed in the room this season that was: We have to get back to having fun. I’m really, really proud of so many moments in season 2. It was a darker season in every sense of the word, darker, but the show is ultimately called High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. We as writers work so hard on his scripts and we take the show so seriously. But I never want it to take itself seriously. We take the writing seriously, but the show itself needs to have a sense of humor. And for Josh, who’s such a really goofy person himself, he’s like a golden retriever in human form, I knew this was the season to have him sort of released from that because I also think that’s the reality of young people is. You’re a skater, then you’re a theater kid, then you are Jim Carey, and you find out what your ultimate form is. Seeing Josh go silly this season is his brand of romance. I have a strange thought and you’re the only person I’m telling this to. So in 303 when Ricky and Gina are walking up the hill and talking about the woman in the woods and he puts his hand on her heart… I pulled Josh aside after we shot the scene a couple of times. I was like, “Josh, this just needs to be a little more flirty.” He was like, “I don’t know what you’re saying. That’s how I flirt. I tease people.” I thought, “Okay, I get it. Do your thing.” But it just made me laugh. He said, “I know what the intent of the scene is. I thought I’d do it.”

EJ has already graduated from high school. Will we see Matt Cornett next season?
Tim Federle: I don’t think there is high school musical without Matt Cornett. He’s an incredible actor. While I know EJ had a really challenging season and was kind of broken especially at the end by the experience of living up to his toxic father’s expectations, there are definitely more stories to be told with EJ, what I caution about expectations is EJ completed those High school in every form of this sentence. I think EJ has some time to find himself and figure out what he’s doing. He’ll be there, but I don’t think he’ll be back in high school.

Season 4 is going to be incredibly meta. School musical 4 will be filmed at East High and the Wildcats will be extras. Does that mean we’ll see more original cast members in Season 4? Is that the plan?
Tim Federle: That is the plan. And so far the answer is yes. I am still working on it.

Does this have anything to do with performers like Zac? [Efron] and Vanessa posing outside of East High?
Tim Federle: I will call this an extraordinary and inspiring coincidence.

I loved Emmy’s solo moment in the finale. Your voice is really incredible. Will we see more of her in Season 4?
Tim Federle: I definitely think there are a few characters in season 3 that I love so much and the actors are so extraordinary that you didn’t see them last. I think Emmy is at that age where she’ll be a freshman somewhere, she’ll probably want to go to East High.

I can’t imagine the show without Jet and Maddox at this point.
Tim Federle: I mean, I have to be honest with you, I can’t either.

HSMTMTS
The Cast of ‘HSTMTS’ Season 3. (Disney+)

I mean they need to transfer if they’re not going there already.
Tim Federle: They don’t go there and I think they have some things to do at home because Jet got expelled from his last school. Maddox has to deal with Madison, played by the only one JoJo Siwa. When Saylor [Bell] and Adrian [Lyles] I had quite a long schedule for them because I think they’re really special actors and I think they’re both so under the radar. Look, we’ve got some really cheesy comedy on this show. I am a former theater child. I used to tell dad jokes when I was 11 so it’s really nice to have an Adrian Lyles who’s so much more subtle because he’s new to acting and he’s so brilliant and raw and real and then he’s da Saylor just carrying that light within her that is irreplaceable. I hope we see a lot more Jet and Maddox.

All Gina ever wanted was for someone to put her feelings for her first. There were a number of events that prevented EJ from doing that, but we see Ricky coming full circle in the finale. Now that summer is over, there are many things to play with. Back at school it’s a whole different world. What is Ricky and Gina’s relationship like now that they’re in the spotlight, especially with the documentary?
Tim Federle: I think the most important thing I would say is that it’s about time Gina’s world became on Gina’s terms. She stood in the shadow of her mother’s moving career, in the shadow of a really great friend in EJ who was just getting on with his own life. I think it’s time for Gina’s next steps as a young woman and also as a possibly in a relationship with Ricky so it’s on her terms. I think it’s going to be a lot of Gina making the rules.

Dara Renee

dara [Reneé] goes to EGOT. I’ll just say it.
Tim Federle: Yes I agree with you. By the way. I just want to say that telling these stories about a young black woman’s struggle with anxiety is the opposite Aria Brooks, and when I saw Dara triumph in “Let It Go…” I showed the cast the finale at D23. When Dara’s light went out, her mother yelled at the screen. It was so real and beautiful. I’m so proud of Dara for bringing her entire gift to the screen this season. Dara is just getting started, and she deserves it.

Serbian Church awarded war criminal Vojislav Seselj – Novinite.com https://moiteplanini.com/serbian-church-awarded-war-criminal-vojislav-seselj-novinite-com/ Tue, 13 Sep 2022 05:43:42 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/serbian-church-awarded-war-criminal-vojislav-seselj-novinite-com/

That Serbian Orthodox Church (SOC) awarded to the leader of the extremist Serbian Radical Party (SRP), Vojislav Seseljwho was sentenced in 2018 by the Hague tribunal to ten years in prison for inciting the persecution, deportation and forced resettlement of Croats in the village of Hrtkovci in Vojvodina in 1992.

That command of the Holy Bishop Mardari, as handed over to him personally by Bishop Irinei Bulatovich. “It is my great honor to present this order‘ said the bishop at the award ceremony. This isn’t the first order that the SOC gave to the war criminal Vojislav Seselj. Seven years ago he received the “White Angel” order – First degree, from the Serbian Orthodox Church.

long time the SOC is not religious. It’s a political organization. It has become an umbrella for the darkest people and manifestations in this land. In the end is the SOC will be the undertaker of our country. And I am absolutely convinced of that. Around Seselj I can say this myself: once a war criminal, a war criminal for life‘ Aida Corovic, one of Serbia’s most prominent human rights activists, told Danas.

According to sociologist Vesna Pesic, President Aleksandar Vucic cannot openly defend Vladimir Putin, so he has this task Serbian Orthodox Church and the extreme right. “SOC has nothing to do with religion. It has become a political factor, uniting the extreme nationalist organizations that took part in the wars to create Greater Serbia. For them, Putin is a role model“ said also Vesna Pesic.

We remind our readers of that Seselj was imprisoned by the International War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague from 2003 to 2014.

Sofia Vergara, actress of The Only Modern Family, had a problem with https://moiteplanini.com/sofia-vergara-actress-of-the-only-modern-family-had-a-problem-with/ Sun, 11 Sep 2022 12:00:00 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/sofia-vergara-actress-of-the-only-modern-family-had-a-problem-with/

It turns out the only member of the Modern Family cast that has a hard time tolerating Sofia Vergara is none other than Stella, the Pritchett clan’s French bulldog. And the truth is, Vergara doesn’t need much acting to make her true, less than adoring, feelings for the little dog look convincing.

As reported by People, Vergara revealed her no-stella-for-me attitude while attending PaleyFest 2012, an annual television festival in Los Angeles. After some quips from series creator Steven Levitan about her hard feelings towards the animal, Vergara replied, “It’s not that I hate the dog! I’m not used to having a little dog on top of me that licks.” The actress then explained that her reaction wasn’t directed against Stella per se, but was simply because the people of her native country of Colombia are their own kind have to deal with the dogs in their lives. In her country, Vergara continues, the dogs are mostly kept outside in the yard and slept there, too. “They don’t go in your bed,” she noted, adding, “It’s a different matter.”

The sad truth, however, is that Beatrice, the second canine actress who fitted Gloria as Stella, died shortly after the conclusion of the final “Modern Family” episode (per The Blast).

These Ukrainians have endured in their homes for over 6 months but are finally on the run https://moiteplanini.com/these-ukrainians-have-endured-in-their-homes-for-over-6-months-but-are-finally-on-the-run/ Mon, 05 Sep 2022 18:01:33 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/these-ukrainians-have-endured-in-their-homes-for-over-6-months-but-are-finally-on-the-run/

About an hour before curfew, a bus with only four passengers pulls up at the curb in Kryvyi Rih, Ukraine.

It’s dark and summer nights in central Ukraine have started to get an autumn chill. Two men and two women get off the bus with large plastic bags containing their only belongings.

Their home is just 70 kilometers away in the village of Petrivka in Donetsk Oblast in eastern Ukraine. But the four have been out for about 17 hours because shelling along the route prevented them from taking a direct route.

We were in the crew for half a year and now we don’t have the strength to stay longer.– Valery Baluta

“It was very dangerous… we barely got to that place,” Sofia says through a translator. “The road is very dangerous. We were almost completely shelled. It was horrible.”

Sofia is just one of many internally displaced people in Ukraine who are on the run now, more than six months after the start of the Russian invasion. Many people in Ukraine endured these months and hoped to be able to stay in their homes. However, as Ukrainian forces try to regain ground in the country’s southern areas, the shelling has intensified and many feel they have no choice but to leave.

Sofia spoke to CBC to share her story, but doesn’t feel comfortable giving her full name. The rest of her family is too devastated to be interviewed.

Fear of death caused her to leave

When Sofia enters a city shelter, she nearly trips, weak from exhaustion and stress. The director of the shelter immediately calls for a chair and water. She takes big gulps from the bottle.

She says she’s relieved but still panicking.

She describes the past few weeks in her village as “three times worse than before,” with constant shelling. She says she and the others on the bus were the only ones who survived, but if they stayed there any longer “we would die”.

“When we first saw it [Ukrainian] “I can’t express the joy I felt when we crossed the border,” she adds, thanking the Ukrainian soldiers who helped them get out safely.

On September 3, the War Research Institute said several Russian sources reported that Ukraine had attempted to advance into a number of villages in northern Cherson, including the village of Petrivka in Sofia.

“We were in the occupation for half a year and now we have no strength to stay longer,” says Valeriy with his wife Viktoria and their youngest son Mykhail through a translator. (Melissa Mancini/CBC)

Sofia says her family were among the last to leave the village where she has lived all her life. She says her home was destroyed after spending months in her basement eating canned goods.

“We raised money, raised money, built [our] house and in a moment it was all gone.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Sunday that two southern villages had been recaptured. A photo circulating on social media shows a soldier raising a Ukrainian flag in Vysokopillia, in the southern Kherson region.

“Ukrainian flags are returning to the places where they should be,” Zelenskyy said, adding that two settlements were liberated without naming them.

The regional capital, Kryvyi Rih, has taken in much of the people fleeing the mounting fighting in Kherson. The city hosts 70,000 people from other areas; about half of them are from the Cherson region.

In addition to providing shelter for those in need, the city gives them three meals a day, says the head of the military administration in Kryvyi Rih.

“Russians act like barbarians, like terrorists. They regularly bomb peaceful villages, hamlets and small towns,” says Oleksandr Vilkul.

In the past two weeks, the number of people leaving the surrounding villages has increased, he says.

“We are evacuating people from the frontline and areas near the frontline. We send our buses, our ambulances, to get people to evacuate. At least 10 or 30 percent stayed [in the] occupied territory.”

According to Vilkul, the city needs help feeding the new arrivals and help equipping the 18,000 new students they will be teaching.

Families are also fleeing the Russian-occupied territories

It’s not just people in Kherson who are leaving.

Families are trying to evict from Russian-held areas in the south, such as Melitopol in the Zaporizhia region.

The family of captured Ukrainian soldiers fears the worst for their loved ones

Fears are growing in Ukraine that some of their captured Mariupol veterans will face Russian show trials. Susan Ormiston speaks to a prisoner’s mother who fears she won’t see her son again.

“We were in the occupation for half a year and now we have no strength to stay longer,” says Valeriy Baluta through a translator.

Baluta and his wife Viktoria Baluta set out for safer ground on August 30 with their sons, eight-year-old Konstantyn, five-year-old Oleksandr and 11-month-old Mykhail. As with Sofia, her journey to Zaporizhia was stopped by shelling.

“The explosions started immediately on the field,” says Viktoria. “So where are we supposed to hide? So we got pinned against the car.”

The family flees Melitopol for safer ground in Ukraine after six months of Russian invasion.

The couple said the ride was far worse than what they had read about, through reports from other people who had left Melitopol on social media and news sites.

“Oh, you can’t imagine that — it got my adrenaline pumping,” she says.

“I was shocked. When you hear that, it’s not comparable to seeing the spent military equipment, the holes in the asphalt. The mines are on both sides. Horror, horror.”

It was a relief to see Ukrainian soldiers as they passed a checkpoint that welcomed them back onto the country’s territory.

“My impression was that even the sky is bluer here,” says Viktoria, whose family hopes to be able to end up in Poland at some point. “It’s a physiological feeling, it even makes it easier to breathe straight away.”

Yara Shahidi & Sofia Ongele Interview: Growing up https://moiteplanini.com/yara-shahidi-sofia-ongele-interview-growing-up/ Sat, 03 Sep 2022 18:55:00 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/yara-shahidi-sofia-ongele-interview-growing-up/

Yara Shahidi and Sofia Ongele collaborated on Ongele’s episode of Disney+ Grow up, a show created by Brie Larson and Culture House to provide a platform for a diverse group of young people to share their very different experiences of growing up. Shahidi, known for her roles in Black and Adultdirects Ongele’s episode and brings a unique perspective to her story in recreations and retellings.

Ongele, who grew up in Los Angeles County, shares her story of growing up in a community that lacks diversity and how her interest in math and science led her to struggle with imposter syndrome . When her friend goes through a traumatic event, Ongele decides to use her skills to make a difference. This included developing an award-winning app called ReDawn to support survivors of sexual violence.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Also see: Disney+: Every new movie and TV show is coming in September 2022

screen rant sat down with Ongele and Shahidi to discuss their collaboration Grow up, what it means to tell such a personal story on such a large scale, and what Ongele is up to. Watch the trailer and read the full interview below:

Screen Rant: Sofia, you tell a really important story on such a huge platform. Can you talk a bit about what it means to you personally to tell your story so big?

Sofia Ongele: I personally feel very privileged to be able to do that because I feel like my story isn’t necessarily an anomaly. I feel like it’s something that a lot of people can relate to. And that’s one of the things that we realized, we the cast, all the heroes talking to each other, and we realized that, oh, a lot of our stories are very similar. And that’s because, while growing up feels very isolating at the time, it doesn’t have to be. It’s about having those conversations with those around you and having that sense of community to be able to support you as you go through what seems like a very scary time. Not even seems, it really is a very scary time.

And that’s why I’m so glad to be a part of this project, because I feel like a representation in relation to — especially young black girls growing up. I didn’t have much. Yara was my representative when I was eight or so. Because when we talked about it imagine– I love this movie – I said, “Yeah, black girl!”

To see ourselves represented in different areas and in different ways, not only going through the grief and some of the more heartbreaking events, but also celebrating that joy and showing that we are all multi-faceted people who go through anything and do anything. And I think hopefully a lot of black girls will be able to see that and be like, oh my god, I can do that too.

Yara, you bring this story to life visually and you sort of mentor and bring out a new generation. How was it? How did this process work for you to bring Sofia’s story to life visually?

Yara Shahidi: I don’t know if I would classify myself as a mentor as I am the same age as all the heroes and they had so much to offer. But honestly, I think my approach to the whole directing experience was to honor my own experiences in front of the camera and try to reflect on what worked for me as an actor, what didn’t work, what I’m not trying to replicate. And I use that as a pretty good base to set the tone.

Luckily I had the experience Adult what it means to set the tone on set. And I’ve been grateful that I’ve already stepped into a really well-oiled machine and a wonderful group of people who love to work together. And to be honest, I feel like my job was easy. I would classify it as just borrowing from what was already presented and what was already there.

Sofia and I had already spoken and knew how many parallels there were in our stories, so I already knew there would be an ease in our conversation and sharing of these experiences. And everyone on set was so excited to tell the story that it was fun to lean in. When people had different ideas about what to do with the camera, different lighting ideas, it became a really joyful experience because people were having so much fun.

Sofia it was so amazing to see you teaching at the end of the episode and talking about how black women are really underrepresented in STEM and similar positions. Can you give viewers an update on where you are right now and what you’re doing?

Sofia Ongele: Yes. I recently mentored the Code With Klossy camp this summer, which was really cool. I’ve been involved with the program since 2016 which is really crazy if I’ve wanted to learn and I’ve taught so many times through it and I’m so glad I’ve been able to mentor some of the camps that have been in New York.

I took a few years off school just because of COVID – online school is not my thing. I’m going back to school in the fall. I transferred to Columbia University, where I study information science with a concentration in human rights. So I’m still doing the same thing. I still code all the time, I work with my organization, Gen Z for Change, and I do a lot of really fun, crazy things. Like shutting down like an anti-CRT template in Virginia by spamming it with text and lines from the bee movie, that’s really cool. So stuff like that. It’s real and you can look it up. I love being able to still be my authentic self.

I’m still learning and growing of course, but I have so many communities now. And I still liked it when we were shooting the show. But finding more and more communities makes the process a lot less daunting, I think. And I think that’s, even though I’m grown up, I think now, I think it’s something that remains a theme in our lives. Our community is who we are and without that I feel like you need to go through this daunting process all over again.

Growing Up Synopsis

Growing Up is an innovative hybrid docu-series exploring the challenges, triumphs and complexities of youth through ten compelling coming-of-age stories. The series uses narrative, experimental and documentary filmmaking to follow a cast person, aged 18-22, as they tell their story. Representing a wide range of lived experiences, they provide audiences with emotionally powerful narratives that offer an engaging look at the teenage years and the multiple social, family and internal obstacles young people encounter on their journey to self-discovery and acceptance.


Each 30-minute episode features a young person or “hero” and their coming-of-age experiences. Each episode is anchored by a deeply personal interview that allows our heroes to take us through their childhood and adolescence. Alongside these interviews, creative cinematic re-enactments help bring their key turning points to life.

Grow up Premieres September 8 on Disney+.
