    Canal+ Overseas takes majority stake into telco Mediaserv
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 28-06-2013
    Canal+ Overseas, Canal+ Group's overseas territories subsidiary, has taken a 51% majority stake in Mediaserv, the telco belonging to the Loret Group based in the French Caribbean.
    The deal, aimed at developing TV, phone and broadband services, is about to be submitted to the French Competition Authority so it can be closed by the end of the year.
    "Canal+ Overseas continues its growth strategy developing new markets in Africa and Vietnam, and consolidating existing territories with additional activities. In the French overseas territories, we observe an unprecedented development of broadband access and IPTV offers," Jacques du Puy, president of Canal+ Overseas, said.
    Canal+ Overseas sells over 200 channels in, mostly French-speaking, overseas territories, and these are included in Les Chaînes Canal+ and Canalsat offers. Regions covered include the Caribbean (French Antilles and Guiana), the Indian Ocean (La Réunion, Mayotte, Mauritius) and Pacific (New Caledonia and French Polynesia) regions. Canal+ Overseas is also the first pay-TV operator in French-speaking Africa, through its subsidiary Canal+ Afrique, with a presence in over 30 Central and West African countries, as well as in Madagascar.

    Aereo to launch in Chicago
    Parent Category: News | 28-06-2013
    Aereo, the Barry Diller-backed Web TV start-up, will soon reach more than 9.5 million Chicagoland consumers with a market expansion into the Windy City.
    The $8 per month service, which offers users the ability to record and watch major local TV networks such WLS-TV (ABC), WFLD-TV (FOX), WMAQ-TV (NBC), WBBM-TV (CBS) and WYCC (PBS), will launch on 13 September and will cover 16 counties across Illinois and Indiana.
    "There's no place like Chicago, and we're excited to be launching in this world-class city in September," said Aereo CEO and founder Chet Kanojia. "Consumers want more choice and flexibility when it comes to how they watch television, and the enthusiastic response to our technology from people across the country has been humbling. At Aereo, we feel that we've built something meaningful for consumers and we're proud of the work we've accomplished. However, there's still much more to come as we continue our expansion into new cities throughout the summer and fall."

    A third of US households to adopt multiscreen this year
    Michelle Clancy | 28-06-2013
    Nearly a third of US telco TV households are expected to access multiscreen or TV everywhere services by the end of 2013.
    Cable is close behind due to its early lead, but the growth rate for these services is slower because of the greater diversity of cable households and services (not all service providers offer TVE).
    According to ABI Research, satellite operators are further behind, due to slower starts and lack of in-house broadband services, but offer some novel experiences like Dish's Sling place-shifting technology.
    The vast majority of US TV consumers already use advanced interactive features like remote programming a DVR, the firm found. But they also need further education about TVE services, particularly to help navigate content availability and fragmented device support.
    "The market is still developing with many of the early growing pains, like authentication, finally starting to take a back seat to the content," commented senior analyst, Michael Inouye. "In many respects the technology is in place to increasingly offer wider reaching TVE services. Securing the rights to broader content distribution is the primary remaining hurdle, but once standard metrics are developed the content floodgates are expected to open wider."
    Outside of the computer, Apple's iPad continues to be the most supported TVE device in the US market. In fact, iOS and Android smartphones and tablets capture the lion's share of device support, besting even the popular game consoles.
    "In the multiscreen and OTT space the MVPDs are moving at a relatively fast pace – rapid enough that in some instances the platforms have outpaced consumer awareness," added ABI practice director Sam Rosen. "Beyond consumer education, a great deal of work remains to best optimise the user experience, one that satisfies consumers' increasing penchant for on demand content but also ensures the content is adequately monetised. This objective is creating new opportunities for a wide range of companies within the greater content value chain."

    Dallas Cowboys tap Mobile Viewpoint for live broadcast gear
    Michelle Clancy | 28-06-2013
    Mobile Viewpoint announced today that it will supply the Dallas Cowboys American football team with two WMT units for live broadcasting from any location.
    The Cowboys will use the Mobile Viewpoint technology to broadcast their training sessions, for on-the-field reports during out-games and for press conferences.
    The decision by the Dallas Cowboys to implement Mobile Viewpoint technology was based on a meeting that the management had with the Mobile Viewpoint representatives at the NAB conference in Las Vegas last April, the company said. In two weeks the two WMT sets will be available to the Dallas Cowboys, in time for the NFL pre-season.
    "Clearly sports and our technology blend together well," said Michel Bais, managing director of Mobile Viewpoint: "After the very successful support of the project Torch Relay with the BBC just before the 2012 London Olympics this is the second major sports player to embrace the unique technology of Mobile Viewpoint. Sports on television are all about 'live' and 'location' and those are the two elements our technology supports to the max."

    Adap.tv opens Asian R&D centre in Hyderabad
    Michelle Clancy | 28-06-2013
    Adap.tv, the global video advertising platform for the brands, agencies and publishers, has opened a new research and development centre in Hyderabad, India.
    The company's first expansion into continental Asia, Adap.tv India will take the lead in the development of several of Adap.tv's key technology products.
    As part of the new expansion, the company also announced an aggressive push to hire software engineers in Hyderabad, on par with its existing recruiting efforts in New York City and Silicon Valley. The company aims to add more than 40 new members to its technology team in India before the end of 2013.
    "We've had long-standing, successful relationships within India; the new Adap.tv R&D centre in the region will be an important component of our global corporate strategy, bringing a new level of intellectual diversity to the design and development of our technology and products," said Adap.tv co-founder and chief product officer Teg Grenager. "We have achieved our leading market position because we have been able to rapidly develop sophisticated technology and get it in the hands of our customers. A global R&D strategy, with Adap.tv India as our anchor in Asia, is critical to our ability to sustain this pace as the business scales."
    Adap.tv's move into Asia will capitalise on the strong pool of software engineers in the region, including both experienced and recent graduates from exceptional education and research institutes.
    Prem Kumar Pabbisetty, one of Adap.tv's early employees, helped to kick off the company's regional operations in March 2013, and will lead the India group as managing director. He has worked at Adap.tv's Silicon Valley headquarters for more than five years, helping to build the Adap.tv Publisher, Marketplace and Advertiser products from the ground up.
    "As someone who has experienced the growth of technology in India first-hand, it is very exciting to be able to bring Adap.tv's global mission to the region," said Pabbisetty. "We already have employees from premier institutes like IITs and NITs adding a new dimension to the team. We believe Adap.tv India will be key in helping to shape how our customers plan and execute their global media strategies now and in the future."
    India is one of the fastest growing online video markets in the world; its total online video audience grew 69% to more than 54 million viewers over the past two years, according to comScore. Video consumption has outpaced viewership growth in the country, more than doubling in the same period.

    BT wins broadcast network contract with ITV
    Joseph O'Halloran | 28-06-2013
    Just as it gears up to launch its new broadcasting division, BT has announced what is more of a day job win with a five-year contract to provide ITV with a state-of-the-art digital broadcast network across the UK.
    Under the terms of the deal ITV will access BT’s next-generation media network, in which the communications giant invested huge sums in the earlier part of the decade, to connect its 13 major broadcasting sites to its data centres.
    Expected to be in place by spring 2014, the new X-Net network will see use in the transfer of large amounts of data and uncompressed HD video between sites, at speeds of up to 10Gbps. It will also support compressed media and data links between 32 smaller ITV sites and news bureaus – with the network being managed from BT Wholesale’s International Media Centre in London.
    “Today’s audiences want to watch quality content wherever and whenever they choose using a variety of platforms, and our broadcast network must be flexible in order to meet this demand,” said William Medlicott, finance director, ITV Broadcast, explaining the basis of the deal. “BT’s network solution will help us deliver content ready for transmission quickly and effectively across ITV and the variety of partners we collaborate with on a daily basis.”
    “This is an exciting time for the media industry, as consumers demand more and more content in a variety of formats,” added Mark Wilson-Dunn, BT Wholesale’s global sales and marketing director for BT Media and Broadcast.
    “It also presents a huge challenge for broadcasters, as the market opportunities and their own capabilities are developing rapidly, so we’re delighted that ITV has chosen BT to support them on that journey. We’re delivering an extremely innovative network infrastructure for ITV which … will give ITV incredible flexibility and efficiency, as well as providing an unrivalled level of service to help them continue entertaining people, wherever they might be and whatever device they are using.”
    BT Wholesale’s Media and Broadcast unit already provides ITV with the network infrastructure to support content digitisation, workflows and TV outside broadcast services. In particular it was used to deliver over 50 live events over the last 12 months. ITV was the first customer to join BT’s UK Media Network in 2004.
