Vidyo video conferencing takes the strain out of taking the train Interesting statistics for Netaxis’ internal usage of their Vidyo video conferencing solution in 2016. We had a cumulative total of 91,496 minutes of connections. That’s 2 months, 3 days, 12 hours and 56 minutes of connections. There were a total of 974 meetings connecting […]
How much space have you got – 1080p versus 4k video? Simple post really. Kid 3 is home briefly from uni as he has a gig on Sunday. At the same time I took delivery this morning of my new Weber rotisserie. There is no correlation between these two facts. The link is that as […]
Facebook versus YouTube – best bet for video marketing? On 2nd June we released the broadbandrating.com “bullet proof broadband” video in which we blasted some routers with a shotgun to monitor the effect. A light hearted bit of advertising for our affiliate marketing site. Thus far on Facebook it has had 2,730 views with a reach of 6,880. […]
social media broadband marketing I know we got thousands of you thinking when we put out a post last week asking what had happened to the router. Well it was all a taster for our social media broadband marketing – video style. Last Thursday we had a corporate day out shooting. This was shooting in both […]
The trefor.net pissup in a brewery video is released simultaneously in all global markets. It’s been months in the making. Each week I get thousands of emails asking me when it is due to be released. Now the wait is over. I am pleased to be able to announce, for your delight and delectation, the […]
We present for your entertainment and delight three short holiday videos. The first is an artistic work filmed on the rocks surrounding Peel Castle. Whilst the video requires no commentary the small element of speech inserted towards the end serves to draw the viewer’s attention to some of the key environmental content. The second video […]
Spotted these speakers in Currys audio department yesterday. They had “do not count” written on a label on top of each one. I therefore counted them. Don’t think anyone spotted me. The moment was captured on video and is now on YouTube for all to see. I’m a rebel, me. Other weekend reads: Wear odd […]
Home broadband usage driven by TV streaming Evidence is emerging of what applications are driving home broadband usage at the Davies house. The two graphs presented herein for your entertainment and delight are of the broadband traffic over our Timico 80/20 FTTC line at home over the last two days – Tuesday and Wednesday. The […]
You saw the photos now watch the video. Massive thanks to Michael and the team at Fides Media for their support with this. Use their services 🙂
Broadband video case study – the outtakes Just browsing through some bits of video left on the cutting room floor after we finished the FTTC case study. Thought a couple or three might be of interest. The first one was taken with a GoPro camera positioned inside the cabinet filming the door opening and the […]
Superfast broadband video case study “Never before seen footage of the inside of the Davies household now viewable on tinterweb.” This is it, the video you’ve all been waiting for. Well I have anyway. A few weeks ago we shot some footage around and about Lincoln and chez Davies for a video case study of […]
Couple of videos here for your delectation and delight. We had a Dell film crew come and visit a few weeks ago. They were very professional, all three of them, and had flown over from gay Paree the night before. Their one mistake was flying into Manchester where they stayed the night and then took […]
Filmed at Timico’s Network Operations Centre in Newark. I get a cameo role 🙂 footnote – posted this on youtube but find it has been taken down – the BTiNet uploaded one is there. They must have complained -or Google searches for duplicates! Dunno. I’ve embedded the iNet version.
We had a hugely successful data centre opening event at Timico yesterday – 210 customers, prospective customers and business partners came along and, if I say so myself, had a great time (and were impressed 🙂 ). More on this as soon as I’ve assembled the photos etc – I’m on the move at the […]
Here it is, the one you have all been waiting for. After a lengthier than usual shoot and an intensive post-shoot production period (correct me if I have my movie industry technical jargon slightly wrong) at last at online movie theatres near your desk/settee/mobile device I am pleased to announce the global launch of The […]
The video stars Timico Technology Group Chairman Tim Radford talking about the plans for the data center business.
I’m looking for an exciting dynamic fast moving bright creative imaginative video production company. If anyone knows one can they please get them to contact me. I want to make a video.
This is the official video of the song “The Day The Routers Died” sung by Gary Feldman at Last week’s “Move over IPv4 Bring on IPv6” event in Covent Garden, London
This rare video footage was uncovered from the archives this lunchtime when I was looking for some photos to send to the Skegness Standard who want to cover yesterday’s Rory and Tref pigeon versus broadband race. You will note the firm but fair grip that must be excercised on the racing pigeon prior to launch. […]
This is the video that failed to upload from Furrows Farm to YouTube in yesterday’s Rory and Tref pigeon versus broadband race. It is complete and unedited so you might not want to sit through it all. On the other hand you might (we are all different – witness daytime TV). For reference it was […]
Wimbledon doesn’t appear to be starting online until 14.40hrs. The budget speech is online, the England v Australia 1 day cricket match is online, there is no World Cup football until 15.00hrs. So what eh? So video streaming has hit another high. It is up 309% on the norm. The World Cup has seen a […]
Timico’s video traffic grew by around 30% when England were playing their pre tournament “friendly” football match in South Africa yesterday. ISPs have been speculating as to what might happen during the tournament itself and especially on June 23rd which is England’s first midweek daytime match. At the recent LINX meeting in London it was […]
This may be something that has been going on for sometime in the background, but Ofcom today launched its consultation into regulation of video on-demand (VOD) services. Following the Audio Visual Media Services Directive, the Government is to regulate VOD services which are ‘TV-like’. The consultation is looking at whether the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) […]
Interesting talk at Linx66 by Giles Heron, Principal Network Architect for 21CN at BT. I’m not going into it all but towards the end he discussed video streaming on the network and ways that this might be made more efficient. Whilst ISPs and network operators take on the challenge of managing the growth in video […]
I think I might have mentioned my appearances on BBC radio 🙂 . Well now I’m producing a video. Actually the video is being made by some final year students from Lincoln University media department and it is part of a series of shorts that the students are producing for Timico. We are quite lucky to […]
Check this video short out.
Following on from a post I made in June regarding Polycom putting over a hundred videos on YouTube I have started exploring this myself. The video at end of this post is my first post on YouTube (timicocto) where I have uploaded details of a video competition that we are running at Timico in July. […]

Contextual communication, AI and chatbots are on track to revolutionise the way we communicate, prompting experts to herald the dawn of a major communications revolution. What about the contact centre, and how does WebRTC underpin this shift towards improved customer engagement? More than just chatbots Most of us have already grown accustomed to talking more […]
Feeling funky with my headlines today gnTel choose Oracle Netaxis. I like this. I’ve replicated the press release here which is something I don’t normally do as I normally only do original stuff and I used not to want Google to penalise me in SEO rankings for plagiarising. However I’m not all that bothered about […]
