    NAPTE Budapest: Conference Review
    June 25, 2013 13.00 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    Programming is Europe is undergoing a major shift, with drama on the rise and local fiction adaptions enjoying success, according to Nassima Boudi, international sales manager, Eurodata TV Worldwide.
    Speaking at today’s Breakfast Briefing organised by Broadband TV News and NATPE in Budapest, she also said that entertainment is now the most popular genre, accounting for 41% of the top 10 shows in 71 countries worldwide.
    US shows are losing ground in international markets and talent formats dominate.
    Peter Radnai, director of local production, Chello Central Europe, meanwhile said that Chello tries to focus on entertainment, with even scientific programmes being presented as infotainment.
    Commenting on the second screen he added that obtaining potential viewers now has to be done through the internet.
    Antony Root, EVP orginal programming and production, HBO Europe, provided insights into the company’s strategy in the CEE region.
    He cited a number of productions including Burning Bush, directed by Agnieszka Holland (who is also a HBO director), and of which HBO Europe is “immensely proud”.
    Root also said that HBO is hoping to develop writers in the CEE region.
    Patty Geneste, CEO and founder of Absolutely Independent and the Chair of FRAPA, meanwhile provided an overview of the latter and its activities.
    It has 150 members, including creators, broadcasters and producers, among them Endemol, Fremantle, ITV Studios, Start TV China and Mongol TV.
    FRAPA has a format price calculator, taking into account territory, frequency, length, time slot and broadcast, as well as a ‘bible generator’, or format bible template.
    FRAPA also cooperates with a number of bodies including the World Wide Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO).

    This follows a revision in their contract for play-out services, reed at the end of 2012, with a supplement.
    The latter sets out the play-out for TNT Norway HD and the upgrade of TNT Sweden from SD to HD from March 2013.
    It will also result in the relocation of Cartoon Network Nordic and Boomerang Nordic channels from Turner’s in-house facility in London to Levira from next month.

    Cisco leads in video infrastructures
    June 26, 2013 08.44 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    Cisco is now the leader in four of the five main video infrastructure market segments, according to the Synergy Research Group.
    Cisco has overtaken IBM in the media data center segment during the first quarter, 2013. In the fifth segment of video client (set-top boxes, residential gateways and associated software/middleware), Cisco did in fact pass Motorola in the quarter, but grouping together Motorola with new parent company Arris keeps the combined entity well ahead of Cisco.


    Cisco’s own acquisition of NDS last year boosted its video numbers in a variety of places, but in particular pushed it to a clear leadership position in the content acquisition and preparation segment, which includes smart cards and DRM.
    Total video infrastructure revenues for the quarter were $9.1 billion, 3% down sequentially but 3% up on the first quarter of 2012. On a rolling four quarterly basis, annual growth has dropped off a little to 5%.
    “This is a large market and some of the bigger segments are relatively mature, so we are anticipating steady rather than exciting growth over the next five years” said Synergy Research Group’s John Dinsdale. “Meanwhile, although Cisco is the clear leader in the market, it’s overall worldwide market share is just 21% and there is a long tail of vendors with small market shares. The combination of relatively low growth rates and somewhat fragmented markets will lead to further consolidation among vendors.”

    Imported drama series lose $1 billion in value
    June 26, 2013 08.36 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    The value of imported drama series for European broadcasters was $5.4 billion in 2012; down by $1 billion (16%) on the 2008 total, according to the latest edition of the Imported Drama Series in Europe report.
    Michael Cluff, co-author of the report, said: “2012 shows a significant drop in value compared to previous years. Two-thirds of the fall can be explained by lower income generated by advertising and state grants/license fees. Although the rate of change varies substantially by country, the reminder of the drop seems to come from a combination of cash strapped channels cutting the easiest external costs and the longer term gradual movement of hours out of the high share channels and into secondary channels.”
    Jonathan Bailey, co-author of the report, added: “The total number of imported drama series hours screened declined by only 2% between 2008 and 2012, but the hourly value dropped by 14% over this period.” A total of 1,677 imported drama series titles were analyzed for this report.
    Italy was the top country by value created from imported drama series in 2012, closely followed by Germany. France was third. However, the UK was a long way behind as few imported dramas are aired on the main channels. Italy, Germany and France generated 55% of Europe’s total in 2012.

    Michel de Rosen new chairman ESOA
    June 26, 2013 08.32 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    The board of the European Satellite Operators Association (ESOA) has elected Michel de Rosen, CEO of Eutelsat, as its new chairman.
    Dave McGlade, CEO of Intelsat, was re-elected first vice-chairman and Rupert Pearce, CEO of Inmarsat, was elected second vice-chairman.
    De Rosen succeeds Cato Halsaa, former CEO of Telenor, as Chairman of ESOA. In thanking Cato he said: “During the last year, under Cato’s leadership, ESOA has been shaping the Brussels debate around spectrum. The goal is to ensure recognition of the role of satellites by demonstrating our sector’s heavy use of radio frequencies and by promoting an honest debate about what spectrum is actually required for what services. In 2013, the European Commission is taking concrete steps to facilitate the roll-out of satellite broadband in support of the Digital Agenda 2013 target of broadband for all. This is important work for European citizens and for the future sustainability of our sector. I am very proud to take on the responsibility of driving ESOA’s ambitions forward in the coming years.”
    Europe’s satellite operators have shown solid growth in recent years in a challenging overall economic environment. They are world leaders in their field, providing a backbone for Europe’s space industry: this is vital given that the EU is about to embark on implementation of its first Space Industrial Policy through DG Enterprise & Industry. The Commission has recognised the crucial role of satellite operators, but will need to follow through with implementation actions such as working with other DGs to help regions understand how they can take advantage of satellite solutions to develop broader access to digital services by European citizens and businesses.
    Michel de Rosen concluded: “Satellites provide everyday, emergency and strategic services across the globe and most particularly to citizens in areas unserved by other technologies. In pushing for a Digital Single Market, DG CONNECT has realised the need for satellites to make 100% broadband coverage a reality. Beyond this, our technologies will be a key infrastructure for tomorrow’s “converging world”, relieving bottlenecks and working in a hybrid configuration with terrestrial networks as they become congested by bandwidth-hungry video content demanded by users. They are therefore also directly relevant to next generation networks and services of the future.”

    Fox debuts in Norway
    June 26, 2013 08.18 Europe/London By Robert Briel
    Fox International Channels (FIC) is launching Fon in Norway starting July 1, 2013.
    The new channel will replace the existing Fox Crime channel in the market, to become the new home of fan-favourites such as The Walking Dead, Da Vinci’s Demons and the upcoming American remake of The Bridge.
    The move is the last in a slew of rebrands and new channel launches that FIC has executed over the past 12 months, meant to align the distribution of the flagship Fox brand across Europe. These have included moves in the UK, Greece, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia and Serbia.
    Fox is the cornerstone of FIC’s entertainment portfolio and its entry into Norway will provide local audiences a bigger, bolder and broader TV destination. Under the new name, Fox will continue to feed its Norwegian viewers American-made first-run series but broadens its schedule into new genres that reflect an ever-expanding audience.
    In a related development, FIC also will change the name of its premium Dutch sports channels Eredivisie Live. The main channel will be known as Fox Sports Eredivisie with three Fox Sports 1, 2 and 3 channels in the multiplex.

    White label DTH: the way forward?
    June 26, 2013 10.49 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul, Digital TV in CEE, Krakow



    Using a white label solution in the DTH in Central and East European market can reduce the breakeven figure for operators from around 200,000 to 50,000-70,000 subscribers, according to Neven Dilkov, MD, Neterra.
    He added that of nine major DTH operations in the CEE region, five are below or close to the 200,000 figure.
    Neterra has partnered up with Telenor to launch a new white label platform in Bulgaria and its potential clients will include GSM operators, content owners, cable TV networks and others.
    Dilkov added that its first customer was a regional TV cable operator. He also spoke of the strong advantages of using a white label solution.
    The business model is cash flow positive from day one and Neterra is asking customers to pay for the number of subscribers they have actually sold the service to.
