Jio’s next big plan: Disrupt market with 1Gbps broadband service

Reliance Jio launched the wireless 4G services all over  India. The performance of the Jio 4G has been mixed. Some argue – or rather argued in the initial weeks that followed the launch – that it is the best thing that ever happened in India’s 4G scene. But of late, not many people are saying nice things about the service because the data speed is down and a few other other issues continue to plague it, although it is still in beta (testing phase) and the commercial launch is still weeks away. But the problems — real or perceived — with the Jio 4G are not deterring the company. Even as it works to fix the Jio 4G, it is also working on newer services, which it hopes will help it gain even more momentum in the market. One of these services is 1Gbps wired broadband service.

Although there is no definite timeline when Reliance Jio rolls out the new services, including the wired broadband, the company has already started testing some of those in select areas across country. Let’s see what all Reliance Jio has to offer in possibly the next one year.

Fiber To The Home (FTTH)

The biggest plan of the company is based on its FTTH service, for which it had started working about a decade ago. Reliance has already laid down fibre optics cables across most of the country. You must have seen those huge machines putting down cables in the earth, those were early days of Jio. Or you may have seen those manholes that have ‘RJIL’ written on those.

With the FTTH service the company expects to bring up to 1Gbps speed to wired broadband internet in India. Sounds exciting, right? It is. Some earlier reports had also suggested that Jio is working on FTTH services. As we said there is no definite timeline for this, but we expect it to be announced in next six or seven months. And if Jio 4G SIM’s plans and pricing are any indicator, the FTTH broadband is going to be troubling for the current market players.

The possibility of 1Gbps speed opens so many doors to as many opportunities. With the connection, the customers will get a set-top box, an Android smartbox, which could be Nvidia Shield or something similar. And with such a speed it will promise 4K videos everywhere.

The set-top box for JioTV also works as a router. And it will be able to connect 44 devices at one time. The Jio TV service will offer 350 channels including about 50 in HD. The service will save all the TV content for seven days. No, the users won’t have to worry about the storage. All these shows and films will be stored in a Jio servers. It does sound quite ambitious, but we will have a clearer picture in the coming months.

Another app Jio MediaShare is also in the pipeline. As the name suggests, it shares media across devices. In simpler words you can connect five devices, which could be TV, laptops, desktop and mobile phones, to play the same media on them. The service will also allow real-time switch from one device to other without losing the movie’s progress. This means if you are watching a film on your laptop, you can push it to your TV in a different room and watch it from where you left.

Smart home

The FTTH is not just about DTH and broadband services. It also plans to move towards Internet of Things. The company plans to offer devices to create a smart home. These include security systems, motion sensors, doorbells with camera and speakers, fire detectors, smoke detectors and much more.

4 Fun and Creative Smartphone Hacks Photographers Will Appreciate

Need a little creative boost this week? Here’s a short video that shares 4 fun smartphone hacks that might just inspire you to create something different using the little computer in your pocket as either the camera or a prop.

The video was created by Salzburg, Austria-based filmmaker Matthew Rycroft, and it covers two digital and two physical hacks you can perform with your smartphone. Let’s take them two at a timeDigital Hacks

The first two hacks are digital, featuring the hidden menus found in the Instagram apps Hyperlapse and Boomerang.

In case you’re not familiar, Hyperlapse creates timelapses by speeding up and smoothing out video footage you capture with your phone, while Boomerang creates animated snippets that “boomerang” forward and backwards in time. They’re fun, gimmicky apps, both of which feature hidden menus that can really turn up the fun.

Four-finger tap four times on your screen when you have either of these apps open, and a menu that lets you control framerates, max speeds, and more pops up, letting you capture longer, better, and more unique creations.Physical Hacks

The last two hacks are physical. First, Rycroft shows you how you can create a pseudo-UV effect by covering your smartphone flash with three layers of tape, and coloring over each layer with blue, blue, and then purple.

Combine that with some highlighter art and you a pretty neat UV-like effect:Then, last but certainly not least, Rycroft shows you how a few triangular pieces of transparency can be taped together to create a done for displaying holographic videos on YouTube.

This isn’t specific to photography per se, but you can certainly use it as a neat prop for your next creative macro photography project. Barring that, it’ll distract and amazing the kids long enough for you to maybe get some edits done:
