BBC On Demand TV

The BBC is running a trial of their Internet Media Player (iMP) which offers on demand TV and radio programmes for up to seven days after they have been broadcast.


iMP is based on P2P technology and has DRM (Digital Rights Management). The downside is that the DRM ensures the downloaded shows are deleted from your PC seven days after the broadcast date. But it does support the transfer of content to portable devices.

The trial is currently only under Windows but if the service is approved, it could soon be available on other platforms such as OS X and Linux.

If you are interested in participating in the trial, you can express your interest on the iMP’s registration page.

Bye Bye Fuzzy Photos

A Computer Science graduate at Stanford University has developed a camera that won’t let you take a blurry photo ever again! Instead of focusing on a subject before shooting a picture, it stores information from all focusing distances and lets you decide what you want to focus on after you’ve taken the picture.

The device is known as a light field camera and could prove useful in boosting the picture quality of pictures that are prone to be out of focus, such as CCTV surveillance camera pictures.
