    Turkish group wins legal dispute
    July 10, 2013 09.22 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    Turkey’s Cukurova Group has won a significant victory in its attempt to regain control of Turkcell following a ruling by the UK Privy Council.
    In it, the Council said that Cukurova, which is owned by entrepreneur Mehmet Karamehmnet, should pay Russia’s Alfa Group $1.56 billion (€1.21 billion) to reacquire Turkcell, which Alga Group took control of in 2007 when Cukurova defaulted on a loan of $1.35 billion.
    Although the amount Cukurova will be required to pay is significantly less than originally expected – Alfa Group was seeking more than $3 billion – it still remains to be seen how Cukurova will find the money, interest on which has started to accrue since yesterday (July 9).
    It has 60 days to pay the money, which is for a 13.8% stake in Turkcell, Turkey’s leading mobile company, but in May had a number of its own assets seized by the Savings Deposit Insurance Fund (TMSF) for failing to control its debts.
    These include the DTH platform Digitürk, which has recently attracted interest from a number of prospective buyers including Dogan Media Group’s rival DTH platform D-Smart, along with Show TV and Skytürk.
    Besides being Turkey’s leading mobile operator, Turkcell is also has a presence in its TV industry.
    It has just announced that its interactive and social TV platform Turkcell TV recently signed an a three-year deal with Oflaz Media Group’s SinemaTV for the distribution of the latter’s SinemaTV package, which includes three channels and the complimentary on demand service Sinema Hemen (Sinema Now).

    Broadcom aids cable MSOs
    July 10, 2013 00.19 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    Broadcom is ready to supply the technology that will allow cable operators to easily migrate their networks from 1Gbps to 10Gbps while preserving DOCSIS back-office operations.
    Its end-to-end EPON ONU and OLT chipsets and DML software can now be deployed in DPoE 1.0 environments thanks to collaboration with CableLabs, MSOs and industry OEMs on defining the requirements for the environments.
    Commenting on the development, Greg Fischer, Broadcom VP and general manager for Broadband Carrier Access, said:
    “The DPoE specifications represent a significant achievement on the part of CableLabs, cable MSOs and industry OEMs to create an open standard that achieves full vendor and equipment interoperability. This will further the growth of the cable industry by meeting the bandwidth needs of business users.
    “As an early supporter of the technology, Broadcom has devoted significant resources to both the standardisation process and our product portfolio to make DPoE technology available today.”
    Ralph Brown, CableLabs’ CTO, added: “Broadcom worked closely with cable MSOs and OEMs to contribute to the DPoE standard.
    “The company’s work on interoperability (IOP) testing, reviews and completion of interim specifications and ATPs was instrumental to moving the DPoE specifications forward to enable multi-vendor interoperability of devices based on EPON technology.”

    YouMe offers solution to multiscreen ad targeting
    Editor | 10-07-2013
    Highlighting the extent to which its industry is progressing, digital video monetisation solutions provider YuMe has unveiled a new product designed to offer targeted advertising in multiscreen households.
    Designed for effective message delivery across all home platforms to help brand advertisers reach all members of the home via video ads, the new solution is claimed to be the first to deliver 100% in-stream, highly interactive video ads across all connected screens in a household. It provides interactive video ad delivery on whatever connected device audiences are viewing content, anywhere there is a Wi-Fi or network connection. YuMe claims that such capability enables it to reach more than 147 million video viewers in the United States alone.
    With the Household Targeting capability, YuMe says it can deliver engaging brand experiences to multiple members of one home, helping advertisers create branding synergy across screens and among household members. The technology is also designed to allow YuMe to customise video creative and format it for any device ensuring cross-screen compatibility and added interactivity.
    "Multi-device targeting creates a higher chance of getting your brand message in front of the right audience through reinforcement and the proven power of online video," said Ed Haslam, SVP of marketing at YuMe. "With this level of targeting in the household, brand marketers can now reach people who live together for purchase influence. YuMe is leading the shift to offer this level of interactive video technology cross-screen to a highly brand-receptive audience."
    Hyundai, in conjunction with Innocean and Initiative, will be amongst the first brand advertisers to utilise YuMe's Household Targeting product for an upcoming Luxury campaign, focusing on the Genesis model. "Car buying is typically a family decision and with YuMe's Household Targeting we not only reach the decision maker but the family influencers as well," explained David Matathia, director of marketing communications for Hyundai. "With Hyundai's creative and YuMe's technology, we can deliver a brand experience to all members of the household. This is beyond valuable as we aim to appeal to an affluent audience for Hyundai's luxury model line, using a multi-device targeting approach to best deliver against our audience."

    Minerva certifies Amino IPTV STB range
    Editor | 10-07-2013
    Amino Communications has added enhanced multiscreen capability to its Aminet IPTV STB range when running on key partner Minerva's iTVFusion 5 video service management platform.
    Amino is one of Minerva's longest standing partners, the two working closely in a number of regions including North America, Latin America and Europe, covering over 150 IPTV deployments worldwide since 2003.
    The A140 and A540 HD devices have now been fully certified with version 5.4 of the Minerva 5.4 client to create a platform that will enable operators to deliver an enhanced multiscreen experience that can offer linear and on-demand video services to a range of iOS and Android tablets and smartphones. In addition, Merva intends to allow pay-TV subscribers to use these companion scree devices to search for their favourite content and then play it on their main television screen via a unified user interface.
    Other new features include network recording for content streamed via HLS and improved integration of Twitter feeds with on-screen viewing. Improvements have also been made to video-on-demand (VOD) management to simplify multi-region service offerings management.
    "Amino worked closely with us to ensure the new iTVFusion 5.4 client features work seamlessly on their Aminet set-top boxes," said Mauro Bonomi, CEO of Minerva. "We continue to collaborate with Amino to deliver converged pay-TV solutions that allow our customers to differentiate their services in an increasingly competitive market."
    Added Amino CEO Donald McGarva: "Our long-standing relationship with Minerva goes back to the very start of IPTV. This latest certification will enhance our proposition to operators, combining new functionality plus the industry leading HLS capability and high quality our customers expect from Amino devices."

    Sky flies but shrinking economy delivers blow to Italian TV
    Editor | 10-07-2013
    Data released by Italian telecommunications and media regulator AgCom has shown just how the country's economic travails are hitting its media sector.
    In its 2013 annual report, AgCom found that revenues from all Italian telecommunications, media and postal services totalled €61.4 billion, a $4.4 drop on the previous year due mainly to a decline in advertising revenue. The once mighty media sector — including broadcasters, radio, Internet and traditional publishers — was not spared at all from the effects of the shrinking economy, with 2012 revenues declining €1.6 billion year-on-year to 15.7 million.
    Looking at the free-to-air TV sector with more focus, AgCom found that state broadcaster RAI was the revenue leader claiming nearly half (48.3%) of the market with Mediaset accounting for 38.9%.
    Silvio Berlusconi's media firm was also in second place when it came to pay-TV, posting €2.48 billion in revenue in 2012, a 13.2% fall compared with the previous year. The pay-TV market was led by Sky Italia with €2.63 billion in revenue. This too was down, by 1.4%, on the previous year.
    Sky's leading position was a function of its investments in both technology and content, despite the difficult economic situation, said CEO Andrea Zappia. He added: "We operate in a single entertainment market in which all the operators are competing for the various resources available on all platforms – subscriptions, advertising, content and, most of all, the viewer's attention. The industry is going through pivotal changes, with the continuous arrival of new entrants; therefore we need to have the courage to look at it from a long-term perspective. We need new rules, the same rules for all, based on a technologically neutral approach that puts the client at the centre."

    Broadcom debuts DPoE chipsets for cable MSOs
    Michelle Clancy | 10-07-2013
    Broadcom has released end-to-end EPON ONU and OLT chipsets and DML software that are ready to be deployed in DPoE 1.0 environments at Cable MSOs to enable new digital distribution, business and mobile backhaul service opportunities.
    Broadcom collaborated with CableLabs, MSOs and industry OEMs on defining the requirements for the DPoE 1.0 specifications and helped co-author the standard. CableLabs recently qualified DPoE 1.0 Systems and ONU products through its certification process.
    Broadcom's EPON ONU and OLT chipsets enable cable operators to migrate their networks from 1Gbps to 10Gbps throughput rates while preserving DOCSIS back-office operations.
    "The DPoE specifications represent a significant achievement on the part of CableLabs, cable MSOs and industry OEMs to create an open standard that achieves full vendor and equipment interoperability," said Greg Fischer, Broadcom vice president and general manager for Broadband Carrier Access.
    CableLabs DPoE 1.0 specification fully supports the DOCSIS provisioning processes, enabling new business connectivity services to be delivered cost-effectively over fibre access networks, yet managed similarly to conventional cable networks.
