    Global pay TV revenues hit $184 billion in 2012
    July 2, 2013 05.47 Europe/London By Broadband TV News Correspondent

    The number of pay TV households (analogue and digital) reached 772 million by 2012, up from 585 million in 2008, according to a new report from Digital TV Research.
    Asia Pacific increased by 126 million – or two-thirds of the global additions – during this period to bring its total to 433 million. North America (112 million) was the second largest region, although it only added 4 million.
    Pay TV revenues reached $184 billion in 2012, up by 28.5% from $143 billion in 2008. Cable (analogue and digital combined) generated the highest revenues by platform, with $87 billion in 2012. However, cable revenues are flattening and DTH will overtake cable soon. IPTV revenues reached $12.0 billion in 2012, up from $2.8 billion in 2008. North America generates about half the world’s total pay TV revenues.

    About 404 million digital homes were added around the world between 2008 and 2012. This took the digital TV household total for the 97 countries covered in the Digital TV World Databook to 786 million. Digital TV penetration of TV households climbed from 28.6% at end-2008 to 54.7% by end-2012.
    However, there were still 652 million analogue TV households by end-2012 – although this was down from 956 million at end-2008. There were still 411 million analogue terrestrial homes (down by 56 million year-on-year) and 242 million analogue cable ones (down by 33 million) at end-2012.
    Digital cable was in 273 million homes (up by 43 million on end-2011), followed by 178 million pay digital DTH (up by 20 million) and 118 million free-to-air digital DTH by end-2012. Pay IPTV brought in another 69 million households (up by 18 million). Meanwhile, primary free-to-air DTT homes reached 138 million (up by 26 million), with pay DTT accounting for a further 9 million.
    From the digital homes added between 2008 and 2012, 83 million came from primary DTT [homes taking DTT but not subscribing to cable, DTH or IPTV]. Digital cable contributed a further 151 million additions, pay DTH 75 million, with pay IPTV providing an additional 56 million.
    The universe is not static as 100 million TV households were added between 2008 and 2012 to bring the total to 1,439 million. Of these additions, 69 million came from the Asia Pacific region.
    From the 404 million digital TV households added between 2008 and 2012, 229 million were in the Asia Pacific region, bringing its total to 342 million. China became the largest digital TV household nation in 2010; rising to 187 million digital TV homes (24% of the world’s total) by end-2012.

    Elemental reveals customer wins, advances HEVC codec to support 4K/H.265
    Editor | 02-07-2013
    As it enters the second half of 2013, Elemental Technologies has revealed a flurry of customer wins and key technological milestones in particular in the domain of the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) compression standard.
    In terms of the former Elemental has entered into a formal channel partnership with Finnish video and broadband technologies and related services provider Teleste. Under the terms of the deal, Elemental will power Teleste’s Optimo over the top (OTT) solution which is designed to offer a complete multiscreen solution for managing and distributing TV channels, interactive services on DVB, IPTV and OTT networks. It will now be able to output content in HLS, MSS, HDS and MPEG-DASH formats.
    In a further customer announcement Elemental revealed that it is has been instrumental in supporting broadcast services company WRN in both its core business and also in the development of a second screen app for a leading Asian broadcasting firm. But technologically the main action is in HEVC, designed to address the growing issue of network pressures as online video proliferates.
    After having unveiled 4K H.264 solution in April 2013, Keith Wymbs, VP of Marketing for Elemental, revealed that Elemental has now advanced its HEVC software codec implementation to support 4K/H.265. Furthermore it is now able to process 1080P HEVC video streams at below 2.8 mbps, 400Kpbs less than what it was showing at NAB 2013.
    Wymbs also announced that the Elemental disclosed that its Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution, again unveiled at NAB 2013, has been deployed on 3 continents and in one application a broadcast customer and a programmer customer processing instance views by.
    “We believe we are innovating faster than anyone in the industry and have made HEVC available to any customer that wants to license it,” the executive commented. “Elemental’s ownership of its core software and unique parallel processing-based approach yields significant performance advantages – ahead of others. [With Elemental Cloud PaaS] Media companies have never had so much insight into their own transcoding trends – nor as much control over resources, cost and availability.”

    NAO slams BBC ‘weak governance ‘on senior managers’ severance payments and benefits
    Editor | 02-07-2013
    Another day, another welter of criticism for the BBC as the UK’s National Audit Office has criticised the corporation for breaching its own guidelines on severance payments and wider benefits for senior executives over the last 12 months.
    Having been invited by the BBC Trust, the NAO, which scrutinises public spending on behalf of the UK Parliament independent of government, concluded that “weak governance arrangements” has led to the BBC breaching its own policies on severance too often and without good reason, exceeded contractual entitlements and put public trust at risk. The Trust, the body whose stated mission is to obtain best value out of the BBC for licence fee payers, to examine the books, added that it found some of the conclusions reached by the NAO in its report as deeply worrying.
    Even though the savings the BBC has made from recent senior manager departures—including that of former BBC Director Generals Thompson and George Entwistle among other executive staff—exceed the cost of severance payments, the spending watchdog concluded that the severance payments for BBC managers have provided poor value for money.
    Overall the BBC spent £25 million on severance payments to senior BBC managers in the three years to December 2012. It also spent £3.2 million on payments in lieu of notice for departing senior managers, from a sample of 60 cases examined, in the three years to December 2012.
    The BBC Trust paid the former BBC Director General, George Entwistle, £475,000 after announcing his resignation. This included three weeks' salary worth £25,000 that was not part of his severance payment of £450,000. The NAO found that the severance payment to George Entwistle in November 2012 was equivalent to his notice period of 12 months; the Trust has subsequently reduced this to six months.
    Between August 2009 and December 2011, the BBC exceeded its target of a 20% cut to the number of senior managers it employs. By December 2011, it had reduced numbers by 24% to 484. By February 2013, it had further reduced senior manager numbers to 436.
    The audit also revealed that two-thirds of all senior managers who left the BBC between 1 April 2005 and 31 March 2013 received a severance payment at a cost, after adjusting for inflation, of £60 million. The BBC estimates that, by 31 March 2013, it had saved £188 million from senior manager redundancies since 2005.
    The NAO recommends that the BBC should include within its remuneration strategy the principles that will guide decisions on severance entitlements, and ensure that its revised severance polices are communicated clearly and consistently applied. Furthermore it advises that the BBC should increase scrutiny of severance payments that differ from standard entitlements.
    "The BBC has too often breached its own already generous policies on severance payments. Weak governance arrangements have led to payments that exceeded contractual requirements and put public trust at risk,” commented NAO head Amyas Morse. “The BBC's proposal to cap redundancy payments, announced in 2013 by the new Director General, is a signal of change for the better. It is well below the maximum that applies to civil servants."
    The BBC Trust has accepted the NAO’s recommendations and says that it will ensure they are implemented in full. It added that it was particularly worried about the failure, in the past, of the BBC Executive and its Remuneration Committee to always follow agreed policy and entitlement. It condemned such practices as “entirely unacceptable” but also regarded the far stricter approach now introduced by current Director General Tony Hall and the Non-Executive Directors of the BBC's Executive Board to both severance policies and their implementation.
    Said Anthony Fry, BBC Trustee and Chair of the Trust's Finance Committee: " Although the BBC has achieved significant savings in its senior manager pay bill, some of the NAO's conclusions are deeply worrying, particularly the failure to follow agreed severance policies in a number of cases as a result of weak governance from the BBC Executive in the past….The Trust is clear that there cannot be a repeat of such a fundamental failure of central oversight and control.”
    In response BBC Director-General Tony Hall also accepted the NAO’s judgement. “The level of some of these payments was wrong… It is important to understand what was happening here. The BBC was trying to get its senior management headcount down – and it succeeded, reducing it from 640 to 445. As the NAO acknowledges, we have saved £10 million over the period studied in the report and will keep on making savings every year. But we have to accept that we achieved our objectives in the wrong way,” he remarked.
