    ADB develops multiscreen environment
    August 21, 2013 09.58 Europe/London By Julian Clover


    IBC 2013. Hall 5, Stand B48. ADB is to unveil a series of new products for use within the multiscreen environment. The Geneva-based company says the new hardware and software solutions will enable both pay-TV operators and broadband providers to connect subscribers with content and services by creating a personalised and unified experience across all devices.
    “At IBC 2013, we will show how ADB’s end-to-end solutions make it easy for pay-TV and broadband operators to launch new services. We will demonstrate the value of a full-service pay-TV platform based on our pioneering technology, cost-effective solutions and systems integration expertise. We enable operators to manage the chaotic world of convergence by offering a simple, convenient and personalised service to their subscribers,” said Peter Balchin, recently appointed CEO at ADB.
    The demonstrations will include ADB’s Epicentro software platform, which gives operators the ability to broaden their portfolio of services for the connected home.
    With Epicentro, operators can activate services such as energy management, home security and remote healthcare.
    ADB will also demonstrate version 2 of its Commercial Video Solution (CVS), launched in June 2013. Now available as a cloud-based service, CVS is used by cable operators to deliver a cost-effective, easy-to-use, HD TV and broadband experience for hotels.

    Sarbu to leave CME
    August 21, 2013 12.58 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    sarbu-largeAdrian Sarbu has resigned as president and CEO of Central European Media Enterprises (CME), one of the leading operators of commercial TV stations in Central and Eastern Europe.
    Sarbu has played a prominent role at CME for nearly two decades, initially being the company’s partner in Romania when it launched Pro TV in 1995.
    He subsequently served as COO from 2007 to 2009, before becoming president and CEO four years ago.
    In order to ensure an orderly transition, Sarbu will continue to be employed by CME until January 1, 2014. In the meantime, the company’s board has designated Duco Sickinghe, one of its members, to lead a committee of directors to ensure a smooth business transition while the committee conducts a search for a permanent CEO.
    CME says that the board strongly supports the strategies undertaken by CME during 2013, including important initiatives like the increases in television advertising prices and carriage fees, which are expected to produce the most value from CME’s primary businesses, and result in strong performance from the company.
    Ronald Lauder, CME’s founder and chairman of the CME Board of Directors, said on behalf of the board: “I would like to thank Adrian for his numerous contributions to the success of CME and for the passion, dedication and outstanding creative vision he has shown since 1995. Over this period, Adrian drove the implementation of CME’s multi-channel strategy and new media initiatives. And he has worked diligently and successfully as CEO to maintain the Company’s market leading positions in difficult macroeconomic conditions and a transitional period in the industry. We are grateful for Adrian’s leadership throughout and look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.”
    Adrian Sarbu said: “I am proud to have been a part of CME for nearly 20 years and to have ensured the continued success of the company through this very challenging period. It is an outstanding organization with talented employees. I am confident the company is well positioned for the future. My mission at CME is accomplished.”

    New sports channel for Slovakia
    August 21, 2013 10.57 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    Slovak Sport TVThe soon-to-be-launched channel Slovak Sport.TV3 will initially be distributed terrestrially and over the web.
    However, it will not use satellite distribution, according to Robert Gregus, TV director at Slovak Sport.TV, quoted by Zive.
    He added that at launch, which is scheduled for September, Slovak Sport.TV3 would employ the (local) terrestrial transmitter network operated by the company Avis.
    It is also speaking with the country’s main multiplex operator Towercom.
    Due to licensing rights, Slovak Sport.TV3 will only be available in Slovakia. It will also be offered solely in SD.
    Slovak Sport.TV is one of the leading sports broadcasters in Slovakia and holds a number of lucrative rights.
    These include those to the Barclays Premier League, which is carried on Slovak Sport.TV2 and shown exclusively by Slovak Telekom.

    FITT taskforce: Portability to have major impact on content delivery
    August 21, 2013 11.38 Europe/London By Julian Clover


    The portability of devices used to consume AV content is likely to have a radical impact on its delivery and the business models that sustain it, according to the latest report from the DTG’s Future of Innovation in Television Technology (FITT) Taskforce.
    The government-backed report says that better networks, more choice and new connected devices are likely to have a major impact in media consumption by 2025.
    Other consumer research is looking into the success of catch-up TV and the relative failure of the HD Ready and 3D initiatives.
    Dr David Docherty, Chairman of the Taskforce said “FITT is a fantastic example of cross-industry collaboration, and of the benefit of engaging with universities and other expert bodies. Building on the analytical work in the first update in May, we’re now in a great position to make recommendations to government, industry, Technology Strategy Board, and universities about how to create a system of innovation that connects up all of the main players and which uses technological breakthroughs to drive successful companies in the UK.”
    Other areas of focus are data management and how the UK can capitalise in the growth of TV viewing data amid a variety of competing standards.
    FITT has also been studying the delivery infrastructure and what decisions and investment may be needed to ensure the UK can make optimal use of its wired and wireless networks.

    Canal Digital revamps cable offer
    August 22, 2013 09.43 Europe/London By Julian Clover


    t-weCanal Digital is upgrading its customer offer in Norway with improvements in broadband speeds and new entertainment services.
    The new broadband portfolio consists of speeds running at 25, 50 and 100 Gbps. CEO Gisle Pedersen says the majority of Canal Digital Kabel TV will receive a significantly higher speed.
    Customers will be transferred to the product closest to what they currently receive.
    At the same time improvements to the new T-We entertainment portal includes Startover – commencing a live show from the beginning; a 7-day backwards EPG and catch-up content.
    “Canal Digital Kabel TV delivers broadband services via various fiber solutions, HFC (Hybrid Fiber Coax) and FTTH (Fiber to the Home). We have in recent years intensified the modernisation of broadband networks by building fibre closer to the customer, even right up to the wall of the house, to ensure that customers have the capacity they need,” said Pedersen.
    The T-We service requires the customer to have the recent ADB set-top.

    DTT award, frequency auction in Poland
    August 22, 2013 09.22 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    KRRiT_buildingThe Polish National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT) has confirmed the award of a national DTT licence to the Lux Veritas Foundation on the country’s first multiplex (MUX-1).
    In a statement, the regulator says this is in response to recent information that has appeared in the media.
    It goes on to specify the method of payment for the 10-year licence, which will allow the foundation to broadcast its channel TV Trwam.
    Furthermore, it says that such charges do not apply to the public broadcaster TVP, which is currently distributing TVP1, TVP2 and regional services on MUX-1 in accordance with legislation pertaining to DVB-T.
    Separately, the president of the Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) has announced a consultation for what will be Poland’s first auction of 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz bands.
    The regulator describes the move as “very good news for all users of smartphones, tablets and multimedia services.”

    RTL Group continues to grow digital
    August 22, 2013 08.19 Europe/London By Robert Briel


    RTLGroup_technicalcentrebuildinglionThe RTL Group said that it continues to grow its digital presence, both organically and through targeted investment in high-growth areas.
    The Group is extending its presence across all digital platforms. In the first half of 2013:RTL Group’s video services and websites attracted a total 4.8 billion online video views, up 35% year-on-year; Thereof, FremantleMedia’s more than 100 Youtube channels attracted 2.9 billion online video views, up 86% year-on-year. Online video advertising was up 39% in Germany, 24% in France, and 34% in the Netherlands year-on-year.
    In June 2013, RTL Group acquired a 51% majority stake in Broadband TV, Youtube’s fifth largest Multi-Channel Network (MCN). Broadband TV manages more than 8,500 channels and generates around 800 million video views per month. With this strategic partnership, RTL Group has become the number 4 player on Youtube (excluding music video services) and strengthened its position in North America.
    In July 2013, RTL Nederland acquired a 65 per cent stake in The Entertainment Group, the leading pay video-on-demand (VOD) company in the Netherlands, which operates the VOD services Videoland and Movie Max Online.
    Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland continued to expand its digital distribution with extensive new content agreements to broadcast its linear TV channels via the online OTT platforms Zattoo and Magine.
    RTL said that TV advertising market conditions remained challenging in the first half of 2013: only the German net TV advertising market was estimated to be stable year-on-year, while all of RTL Group’s other core markets decreased. Accordingly, reported Group revenue was slightly down 1.3% to €2,779 million.
    RTL Group’s EBITA increased significantly by 9.1% to €552 million; the second best first-half EBITA in the Group’s history.
    Reported EBITA margin also increased significantly, reaching 19.9%, compared to 18.0% in the first half of 2012.
    EBITA of Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland increased by 9.3% to €306 million – the best ever first-half operating profit for RTL Group’s largest profit centre; the German RTL family of channels achieved a combined audience share of 31.2% among viewers aged 14 to 59, and increased its market leadership to 6.7 percentage points over its main commercial competitor
    In France, Groupe M6 outperformed in tough market conditions: while the French TV advertising market was estimated to be down 6.0% in the first half of the year, Groupe M6’s EBITA was slightly up to €127 million and the company continued to gain TV advertising market share.
    FremantleMedia reported a higher EBITA of €47 million (H1/2012: €40 million), mainly driven by increased contributions from FremantleMedia North America and FremantleMedia Asia Pacific; the results also demonstrated the benefits of previous restructuring on costs.
    RTL Nederland’s EBITA was stable at €38 million, despite an estimated 5.6% decline of the Dutch TV advertising market; the unit also reported a stable combined prime time audience share of 32.4% in the commercial target group, maintaining a clear lead of 12.1 percentage points over its main commercial competitor.

    ERT successor takes shape
    August 22, 2013 10.04 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul


    ERTGreece’s new public broadcaster has officially begun news transmissions, two months after the controversial closure of its predecessor ERT.
    The latter move drew strong criticism not only in Greece but internationally, with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) at the forefront of protests.
    Earlier this week the Union said it was halting the relay of programmes via satellite and over the internet produced by sacked ERT workers occupying ERT’s building.
    However, the sacked workers said they would continue to distribute their programming over the internet.
    According to the EBU, the new interim public broadcaster has already recruited approximately 600 staff, with a further 1,400 to follow once ERT’s permanent replace NERIT is established in the next few months.
