How long can wireless presentation system APP be free
Today I overheard this article “Wireless Presentation System APPs are running blindfolded and wild, how long can they last? I have a lot of feelings, so I’ll share my feelings, whether it’s ordinary users or wireless presentation system APP side, TV developers, we should do not infringe, do not abuse third-party resources. Because people have patience, when used to “fetishism”, one day, when you can not get, is the end of the world.
Now it can be said to be the era of universal screencasting, large factories such as Apple, Aiki, Youku; professional factories such as Le broadcast, TV Assistant Master, they are trying to bypass the Internet TV license to project all kinds of content to the TV screen and then occupy the living room. Of course, our AWIND main wireless presentation system market is “business conference room, school multimedia classroom” from 2003 to focus on business meetings, multimedia classroom market, we have always been the same.
A cell phone, an APP, software wireless presentation system required “tools” on these two, through the WIFI will be selected any content projected on the TV, inadvertently, opened a new content ecology.
Here the TV is not called TV, but “big screen”.
Screen casting APP is actually born in a gray area, although it can project richer content, such as pictures, documents, short videos and even live streaming, but the copyright of some content does not belong to the screen casting software manufacturer, when such content is projected onto the TV, it may violate the copyright restrictions.
Unless backed up by a huge content library. For example, the AirPlay function on Apple phones allows videos, music and also photo files from the iphone to be projected onto the TV for wireless playback through this function. On Android machines, Android 4.2 or higher system through Miracast function to achieve screen casting, but Android itself is open source, it does not come with its own content.
However, this kind of screen casting operation through the device protocol has a similar “decentralized” name, called: “no intermediary mode”.
In another kind of “intermediary” wireless presentation, the wireless presentation system APP plays a role – this requires the cell phone and TV side to install the corresponding screen casting APP. APP to operate this function.
Others, such as “Le broadcast casting screen”, “Kangaroo remote control” such as professional wireless presentation system software, often in the operation of the game will occur with the copyright holder.
In early April this year, “Kangaroo Remote” became a defendant, the plaintiff is Youku. The reason for going to court was that Kangaroo Remote Control had played the movie “War Wolf 2” without permission, and the copyright was in Youku’s hands.
This lawsuit is not small, because the background of “Kangaroo Remote” is Baidu (Baidu.com Technology Co., Ltd.) and is particularly conspicuous. In the end, the court ruled that “Kangaroo Remote” should compensate Youku with 300,000 RMB for economic loss and 10,000 RMB for reasonable expenses.
According to a report by Entertainment Capital, the defendants included Baidu.com and Baidu Cloud Computing. Unlike the traditional Internet TV app, “Kangaroo Remote Control” is connected to Baidu.com, and users can directly cast the content from the netbook to the TV through the “Kangaroo Remote Control” app on their cell phones, which has undoubtedly greatly increased the possibility of pirated resources entering the big screen. This design has undoubtedly greatly increased the possibility of pirated resources entering the big screen.
Behind this lawsuit, it is actually a step taken by the screen casting app, which touches the minefield of the copyright holder.
On the other hand, LeScreen is also going through this game. This popular screen casting app can initially realize web casting, which means that almost all the resources you can open in the browser can be projected to the big screen through the app, and this feature alone is very popular – Feng Sen, the CEO of Le broadcast screen casting, gave the number of active smart TV terminals as 200 million when he faced the media. .
But such a good function, copyright parties do not like
In April last year, Le broadcast cast screen officially issued a mobile version of Le broadcast cast screen announcement, its mobile version no longer support open URL direct cast screen, the announcement gave advice: users who have cast screen needs to download jump third-party video client and then cast screen.
What is more meaningful is the phrase in this revision announcement: please join us in supporting copyright and respecting content creation, and then the commercial version of Le broadcast started to charge.
Even a major manufacturer like Apple is racking its brains when it comes to promoting its own screen casting protocol, AirPlay2. Although Apple has a lot of copyright and even exclusive resources, it is not like the Le broadcast cast screen, just find a smart TV as a terminal can output content, to put it bluntly, Apple needs TV manufacturers to support the AirPlay protocol.
So in January this year, Apple, a lone wolf who is high up and only provides exclusive services, found Samsung, Sony, Vizio and other TV manufacturers to promote its latest AirPlay2 protocol in order to lay out the big screen. You know Apple has content and does not want to just see others occupy the big screen market.
Here AWIND editor has to give Apple a nod, although the signing of such an agreement may not be very friendly to many users who like to use free software, but it protects the “original”, purge the source of copycats (interests).
About the regulatory policy
It was widely reported that in September last year, the Internet TV Working Committee of the China Association of Network Audiovisual Program Services, which was established less than a year ago, held a “2018 Internet TV Industry Cooperation and Development Conference”.
The meeting convened seven Internet TV licensees, major video websites, and more than 20 well-known domestic terminal manufacturers.
At the conference, Wei Dangjun, director of the Department of Network Audiovisual Program Management of the State Administration of Radio and Television (SARFT), made it clear that the current behavior of many enterprises in Internet TV of directly putting cell phone videos on TV through network screen casting, bypassing supervision, is not in line with the relevant Internet TV management policies. Casting applications on Internet TV, must be a joint operator with an Internet TV license to carry out, any independent third-party casting behavior is a violation.
Now, the copyright controversy caused by the wireless demo system app has surfaced. On the one hand, the copyright barrier formed by the wireless demo system is being built up; and the “landing” companies are whitewashing by establishing cooperation with copyright holders like Akiyoshi; on the other hand, although the relevant policies and regulations are far away, but radio and television often “blowing wind”. On the other hand, although the relevant policy regulations are far away, but the frequent “blowing wind” of the radio and television, also let the small screen casters have a sense of risk avoidance.
Casting screen APP can still be free for how long? This is not only a reflection of users who are accustomed to APP screen casting, but also worth reflecting on the APP manufacturers driven by interests. The Android system is open source, but the unscrupulous use of it, the ultimate harm is the user. Finally I found a very amazing thing, that is, you can not search on Baidu APP cast screen what are the disadvantages, all are advantages! So absurd!
