"White Space is that area of spectrum that is no longer use to broadcast analogue TV signals thanks to the modern wonders of digitisation."
Sorry, but that is a LIE. A myth. The channels are in use either for Digital TV or Mobile. In some countries still Analogue TV.
So called "White space" is the fallacious idea that a TV channel used somewhere else in the country, but apparently not locally can be re-used by a two way data link or something else. It's called White Space in USA originally as in Analogue TV days before CPU controlled TVs, you got a screen of white noise if there was no reception on a channel.
There are frequencies that CAN be safely allocated, but TV frequencies can not. They are not lying fallow.
Some channels can't be used, to avoid interference in a many locations and especially when propagation is better due to weather. So called White Space creates interference. The victims will not know why picture is pixellating or freezing, nor know who to complain to.
Please stop reprinting these press releases without editorial comment. This is not about poachers, but selling technology to the west eventually.
This is the important bit, not the so called "white space" use.
"Well, CCTV firm KineSense has software that can scan hours of video to quickly identify movement and/or colour changes. The company's CTO, Mark Sugrue, showed us how it works: you can run the footage through, or select certain areas of a picture and run it as a filter. The software will zoom through the footage and indicate the level of movement at any given period of time, even breaking out the relevant parts into separate video clips."
This application doesn't rely on "White Space" at all. It could use many frequencies unused between 275MHz and 470MHz in Africa, or between 862MHz and 921MHz. Though I'd have to check spectrum use in the desired countries.
Regulators are supposed to manage spectrum. Not Tech companies.
