CBS’ hit “Hawaii Five-0″ counted on its marketing success this year from some not-so-obvious viewers, via information gleaned from new TV set-top box data.
Working with CBS’ media agency OMD USA, Simulmedia — whose focus is targeting TV advertising campaigns through set-top-box data groups — aimed the “Hawaii Five-0″ launch at specific cable viewers, many coming from unlikely places.
“He really helped us identify underserved pockets of audience,” says George Schweitzer, president of CBS Marketing Group. “It wasn’t about getting a specific demographic — say, 18-49 — or age or education. It was about finding viewers predisposed to watching a police drama.”

Otonomy, Inc., a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative therapeutics for diseases and disorders of the inner and middle ear, today announced positive data from a Phase 1b study of the company’s lead product candidate, OTO-104, in patients with Ménière’s disease. Study results showed OTO-104 to be well-tolerated at both doses tested when delivered via a single intratympanic (IT) injection. Additionally, while not powered to demonstrate statistically significant clinical activity, data from the trial showed that patients receiving OTO-104 experienced greater reductions in vertigo frequency and tinnitus compared to patients receiving placebo. Otonomy plans to discuss these study findings with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and initiate a Phase 2 clinical trial of OTO-104 in Ménière’s disease by the end of 2011.

This week sees the National Association of Broadcasters show take place in Las Vegas. It’s the place to find out what’s happening in Internet broadcasting alongside other TV and film technologies.
The National Association of Broadcasters show attracts tens of thousands of visitors, does many millions of dollars in business and is a great place to find out what technology and web content will be hitting your computer screen, or HD and 3D television in the coming years.
At the show are the likes of Panasonic, Sony (showing off some 3D golf), LG and Microsoft, with keynotes from all kinds of industry folk, from directors such as James Cameron and Kevin Smith to technical or industry bigwigs from MPEG, CBS and other major players.
There is also a massive computer and Internet-based presence with the likes of Vimeo and Highwind promoting their web-based content and systems. Making a splash at the show was Apple with new pricing for its Final Cut Pro X editing software, down from US$ 999 to US$ 299, making it more accessible to video editors working in any market.
Kaltura Powers On
Kaltura’s open source video platform made waves at the show with the announcement that it is being used as the backbone for Internet Broadcasting’s (Ibsys’) new content management system for media companies. Fox Digital Media has also signed Kaltura to power a centralized video asset management platform for the broadband video distribution needs of FNG’s digital assets.

#53 Rich Levandov
His firm Avalon Ventures is not well-known outside of biotech circles or its San Diego headquarters (Levandov is based in Waltham, Mass), but his November 2007 Series A investment in social game developer Zynga makes his coordinates irrelevant. Levandov, who co-led the investment with the ever-ubiquitous Fred Wilson and Brad Feld from Union Square Ventures and Foundry Group, stands out by being inconspicuous. He knew Wilson and Feld from their days at SoftBank (Levandov and Feld worked there, and Softbank was an investor in Wilson’s Flatiron Partners) and befriended Mark Pincus while working at AOL with Sunil Paul, Pincus’ cofounder in their first company, FreeLoader. It took Levandov less than an hour to decide to invest in Zynga. He says: “Due diligence is information you studiously gather if you want to kill a deal.” Levandov also made an early investment in Tacoda before it sold to Time Warner for $275 million. He joined Avalon in 2007 from Masthead Venture Partners, and before that, Softbank, in part to help the firm branch out into digital media. Besides Zynga, current investments include Internet startups Cloudkick (acquired by Rackspace), Pictela (acquired by AOL), Cloudant and Simulmedia.

Big Pharma, basically, risks killing the golden goose of biotech innovation it needs to survive, he contends.

Last year, the number of startups that entered the storage market just about equaled the number of storage vendors that were acquired in the M&A fever. I have no idea when a startup ceases to be a startup, but when I first started this top ten list I gave it a three-year window. That proved too daunting, and the startups that launched two or three years ago have received plenty of coverage anyway. So I made it easy on myself and limited my picks to startups that either launched or shipped their first products during 2010. I also factored in technology innovation, company management and funding.
In alphabetical order, here are some of the more promising startups:

One group believes that the increasingly large entertainment hearth in your house today will ultimately become just one more “monitor” – an IP-connected device – that you may soon access via any number of wirelessly linked entertainment devices. Another school –best articulated by David Morgan, CEO ofSimulmedia.com – fervently believes that television, armed with Internet addressable ads, could well maintain both its audience and its advertising spending lead on Internet and mobile combined far into the future.

Have you experienced an unplanned outage lately? Based on our conversations with IT administrators, there’s at least a 25% chance you have. Those that have experienced an outage recently may no longer be in the IT trenches. But if you’ve survived a painful outage, there’s a good chance you found out the hard way that a good number of the servers under your management have a critical role to play. Even a minor outage that renders one of those critical servers, or even a file, unavailable for a few hours can be extremely costly, if not devastating.
