    TVP savings improve results
    July 212, 2013 07.09 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul



    TVP WarsawThe Polish public broadcaster TVP had better than expected financial results in the first half of this year, posting a record profit of PLN8.7 million (€2.1 million) before tax.
    Its revenues from receiver licence fees in June amounted to PLN16.1 million, compared to PLN11.4 million in the corresponding period last year.
    They were also PLN1.7 million than was envisaged in its budget.
    Furthermore, revenues from receiver licence fees were 25% up in the first half of this year.
    On the other hand, revenues from advertising were 13.7% lower, due largely to a recession in the ad market, while TVP’s operating expenses in H1 were reduced by PLN60.8 million.
    TVP points out that its positive financial results were achieved largely at the expense of limiting the range of programmes and reducing production costs.
    This, in turn, made its output less appealing to viewers.

    The Mill moving to bespoke-designed new facility


    After 23 years, The Mill is leaving its London HQ in Great Marlborough Street and creating a “state-of-the-art” digital facility down the road in Fitzrovia.


    Its new office is a bespoke-designed 29,000 square foot studio at 11-14 Windmill Street, W1. It's the first time The Mill has moved its headquarters since the company first set up shop back in 1990.


    The company believes the purpose-built studio, which is currently being developed, will be “the most advanced facility in the world”.


    The studio is spread over six floors and built around flexible production suites, and includes fancy features such as an “exclusive” client lounge and roof deck. Around 285 staff will work there, out of The Mill’s total worldwide staff of 650.


    “The new building will create the most advanced and flexible digital studio in the world,” says Robin Shenfield, Group CEO of The Mill. “With the move to Windmill Street we’ll be able to change up a gear and set the new benchmark for flexibility.”


    Shenfield says The Mill will be able to “work more effectively and creatively with our clients, moving data and projects around the company in a way that is fast and seamless.” He adds that, with the move, the company is “bringing in a new generation of technology, of handling data and operating in a more flexible way that mirrors the increasingly diverse creative demands of our advertising clients.”


    The work on 11-14 Windmill Street is due to be complete by October this year, and the building will be fully occupied by Summer next year.


    The Mill has a 15-year lease on the building and is working with architects HMKM, who previously designed The Mill’s offices in New York and Los Angeles.

    4K on track to grow significantly, says TV sales report
    NewsPippa Considine22 July 2013

    The global market for TV sets will return to growth in 2013, after shipments fell by six per cent last year, with 4K on track to grow significantly, according to a new report from Futuresource Consulting.


    The growth in overall sales is limited to emerging markets. "Our forecasts show emerging markets will grow by six per cent this year, accounting for over 60% of worldwide TV volumes," says Simon Bryant, head of Consumer Electronics at Futuresource Consulting. "Meanwhile, developed markets continue to shrink as flat panels approach saturation point and market stimuli such as analogue switch off and government incentive schemes come to an end. However, the global picture remains encouraging, with four per cent compound annual growth rate expected to 2017, when annual shipments will exceed 270 million units and emerging markets will account for 67%."


    The prognosis for 4K is positive. "Although 4K - the next step in ultra-high definition video - still has a two to three year incubation period ahead, it is making its presence known and is on track to become a significant technology segment," says Bryant. "Global 4K TV shipments will grow from just 62,000 units last year, to 780,000 in 2013 and 22 million units in 2017. The arrival of native 4K content and increased consumer awareness will help boost sales from 2015 onwards."


    China is currently at the forefront of 4K rollout, driven by relatively low-priced sets from its major domestic brands. However, Futuresource expects most global TV brands to launch a range of 4K TVs by the end of this year, with North America tipped to be a key market due to strong consumer appetite for large screens.


    "LCD TV panel manufacturers and premium TV brands have been looking for the next hot trigger to accelerate flat panel replacement. 3D in the home was an attempt to achieve this and it has yet to become the solid success that many had hoped for," says Bryant. "4K represents a more natural progression for the industry, but one that brings its own challenges, not least the intricacies of producing 4K panels at high yield rates and the complexities of delivering the bandwidth-hungry content. Substantial compression improvements provided by the HEVC codec will smooth the way for broadcast, and although the real-time encoding required for live transmission is still embryonic, solutions are being trialled and evaluated."


    The Global TV Market Report from Futuresource provides a global TV market overview, market development by region, by technology, smart TV market development, 3DTV market development, UHD TV market development and TV vendor market shares. 4K volume forecast data for 22 individual countries and regions is also available, as is a separate 4K report that explores the strategic impact of 4K across the entertainment value chain.

    Love to make one-hour C4 doc on female genital mutilation
    NewsPippa Considine22 July 2013

    Channel 4 has commissioned Love Productions to make an hour-long documentary with female genital mutilation (FGM) survivor and campaigner Leyla Hussein.


    FGM involves the partial or total removal of external female genital organs, which are cut off frequently without anaesthetic. Victims are usually aged between four and 10, but some are babies. The procedure, which is practised in some African, Asian and Middle Eastern communities in the UK - as well as across the world - is often carried out in secret and leaves victims in agony. Victims are often left with lifelong physical problems and psychological trauma and some die.


    Hussein and fellow campaigners have launched an e-petition asking the Home Office to take responsibility for ending FGM in the UK, as opposed to the current arrangements where a number of government departments share responsibility.


    Sara Ramsden, commissioning editor, Specialist Factual, said: “The statistics for this horrendous procedure are frightening and highlight what a problem this is here in the UK - more than 65,000 women living in Britain have fallen victim and a further 20,000 are said to be at risk – and yet there have been no prosecutions in the UK.”


    The as-yet untitled documentary is filming Hussein’s campaign over the summer and will be broadcast in the autumn.


    The documentary is executive produced by Kieran Smith.

    TalkTalk unveils new Head of Pay TV
    July 22th 2013 by Nigel Adie



    Formerly an exec at Modern Times Group, he is the first person to take on the role and will be responsible for boosting its revenues from YouView, Broadcast reports.


    Tristia Harrison, Executive Commercial Director at TalkTalk, believes Mr Karlberg will be able to take the service into a brand new phase.


    "As we become a scale TV player, we're moving our TV team from the 'incubator' to our mainstream commercial operations," she commented.


    Ms Harrison went on to commend outgoing Commercial Director of TV Laurence Miall D'Aout, who will be leaving TalkTalk at the end of next month to take up a new role at Modern Times Group.


    She credited him with helping to make it possible for TalkTalk to expand its YouView TV service and praised him for doing an "excellent job in supporting the launch of TV".


    Ms Harrison also hailed Mr Miall D'Aout for helping to devise the roadmap for shaping and growing its operations.


    TalkTalk attracted 150,000 YouView subscribers in the first three months of 2013, which means it was the fastest-growing new TV service during this period.

    EE finds everyday 'sharing' could save £1,800 a year
    July 22th 2013 by Hannah Langston



    The study was carried out to mark the launch of EE's new Shared 4GEE Plans - the first of their kind in the UK. This means consumers can connect a maximum of five devices to a 4GEE plan and receive a single bill covering every one.


    EE's figures also showed that more than half of people in the UK would be willing to share more in order to save money.


    Women were found to be particularly prepared to share, with many already allowing friends to borrow clothes and beauty products.


    However, some people appear to be reluctant to take certain cost-saving recommendations. For instance, 16 per cent of respondents said they would be too embarrassed to ask a work colleague if they could travel in the same car, even though this could cut their petrol bills by £563 a year.

    North-east Scotland and Western Isles set for Freeview retune
    July 22th 2013 by Nigel Adie



    About 129,000 Freeview viewers in north-east Scotland and the Western Isles are being asked to retune their TVs because of a 4G rollout.
    Approximately 129,000 Freeview viewers in north-east Scotland and the Western Isles will have to retune their television sets due to a rollout of 4G mobile services.


    Channels including BBC One, STV, Channel 4 and Film4 are being moved to new frequencies on July 31st 2013 in order to facilitate the introduction of faster mobile broadband.


    Consumers in the area with Freeview TVs and boxes are therefore being asked to retune their equipment if they wish to continue watching programmes as normal.


    Sir David Scott, Chief Executive of Digital UK, commented: "It usually only takes a few minutes but if anyone is unsure what to do, there's plenty of information available on our website or from our advice line team."


    He added that it is a good idea for people to retune their Freeview TV or box periodically anyway, in order to ensure their channel list is always up to date.


    The work, which is being carried out on the Knockmore, Rosemarkie, Durris and Skriaig transmitter groups, will affect households in areas including Banff, Inverness, Elgin, Grantown on Spey, Dunvegan, Huntly and Peterhead.

    Bury Council, Pennine Telecom and local school team up on Wi-Fi project
    July 22th 2013 by Hannah Langston

    Bury students take advantage of free community Wi-Fi service
    A public-private partnership has brought free Wi-Fi to parts of east Bury.
    Free Wi-Fi is being offered to hundreds of households in Bury, Greater Manchester thanks to an innovative partnership between the local council, a school and communications firm Pennine Telecom.


    The community network originally delivered unlimited wireless connectivity to more than 1,000 homes via a series of Wi-Fi hubs attached to lampposts. It was extended this April to cover an area of one square mile, including the Trees estate and surrounding roads.


    Funded by a £140,000 allocation from Bury Council and Broad Oak sports college in east Bury, the network was installed to support the education of pupils, 40 per cent of whom had no home broadband connection in 2008.


    Deputy Head Chris Owen told the Guardian that many students were at a disadvantage due to their lack of internet access, leaving them unable to take advantage of the same online resources enjoyed by many of their peers.


    The unlimited free Wi-Fi service allows youngsters to study whenever they like and carry out independent research, he explained.


    Mr Owen added: "The days of going to the library and bringing back something neatly copied are long gone. Our kids can now become digital natives in what is a really exciting domain."

    Better and better bigger picture for second screens
    Editor | 22-07-2013

    Those increasingly investing in tablets as second screens will find that their products are offering better displays, according to new research by IHS.
    In its Display Materials & Systems Service, the analyst noted that the media tablets are for the for the first time seeing high resolution liquid crystal display (LCD) panels featuring resolutions of 300 pixels per inch (ppi).
    At the recent Society for Information Display (SID) conference in May 2013, LG Display showed a 7" high definition tablet panel of more than 300 ppi, while rival Samsung Electronics unveiled a 10.1" 300-ppi tablet panel. Prior to the advent of 300 ppi, the highest resolution for tablets was in the 251- to 300-ppi range as shown by Apple’s 9.7" iPad 4 and the 9" Barnes & Noble nook HD+.
    IHS expects the new 300-ppi class will join existing 200-ppi categories to form a freshly expanded line of high resolution displays. And while shipments of such panels will keep growing and increasingly rule the tablet space, lower resolution panels of 100-150 and 151-200 ppi will see their markets decline or remain flat over the years.
    The analyst predicts that shipments of the top-end products to rise from virtually zero in 2012 to at least 12.6 million LCD tablet panels with 300-ppi-or-higher resolutions by the end of 2013. It forecasts shipments to then more than double in 2014 year and to climb to 55.0 million units by 2017.
    “Tablet-makers want to differentiate their products, increase their market presence, boost demand and improve their profitability by offering high performance displays,” said Sweta Dash, senior director for display research at IHS.
    “Display suppliers are supporting this trend with increased production of higher-pixel-density LCD panels that employ the latest technologies to pack more pixels into every inch of screen space. This will create a whole new class of displays with 300 ppi and higher resolution that will represent the new high-end for the tablet business.”
