TORONTO, Jan. 31, 2014 /CNW/ - The premiere episode of Bravo's new original series 19-2 has shot straight to the heart of English Canada viewers as the adaptation of the hit Québec drama debuted to impressive numbers on Bravo and CTV Wednesday and Thursday. The two premieres delivered an impressive cumulative audience of 1.1 million viewers in total. The episode is available now on Bravo.ca, and the Bravo GO app.

Last night's one-time-only broadcast on CTV saw the series introduced to a preliminary overnight audience of 872,000 viewers, making it the most-watched conventional debut of a Canadian drama series since MOTIVE in Feb. 2013. 19-2 was the third most-watched drama Thursday night on Canadian television in total viewers and all key adult demos, following SAVING HOPE (1.35 million) and ELEMENTARY (1.19 million).

On Bravo, Wednesday night's premiere of 19-2 drew 140,000 viewers, making it the most-watched Canadian original series debut on the channel since THE BORGIAS in 2010. The debut grew Bravo's 9 p.m. timeslot by 70% among A25-54 and 82% for A18-49.* Canadians were abuzz with anticipation for the series, as the hashtag #19Two began trending on Twitter on Wednesday.

"We are delighted that 19-2 has started off so strong on Bravo, and has been sampled by so many on CTV," said Catherine MacLeod, Senior Vice-President, Specialty Channels and Bell Media House Production. "As the plot deepens with each new episode, viewers will be treated to many unexpected developments, which is why this series has become addictive television in Québec. English Canada has no idea what's in store for them next."

One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
