    Aspiro TV to relaunch as NORIGIN MEDIA
    Editor | 27-08-2013

    As the result of a management buyout, multiscreen TV services provider Aspiro TV is to relaunch on 1 September as NORIGIN MEDIA.
    NORIGIN MEDIA will continue to be based in Scandinavia and will offer what it calls “productised” versions of the over-the-top (OTT) TV streaming solutions that Aspiro TV has offered since 2004. Primary products will comprise hosted live TV head-end products to support streaming solutions in Europe and the company’s TV everywhere hybrid apps, which are offered globally.
    The new concern, a privately held company, will be led by Espen Erikstad CEO), Jussi Komonen (COO) and Ajey Anand (CCO), who will aim to build on business with operators such as Deutsche Telekom, Telenor, T-Mobile Europe, Telefónica O2, the BBC, Eurosport, FOX and MTV.
    “We pride ourselves in maintaining our ten-year industry leadership position, hosting TV and video solutions for service providers that span the entire multiscreen OTT TV value chain,” commented Erikstad. “We recently launched our hybrid apps product, which is already being endorsed by a number of large operators, broadcasters and media companies.”
    Added Komonen: “Taking NORIGIN MEDIA into private ownership will give us a greater strategic focus and allow us to stay ahead of this quickly developing technology market place. It will also allow us tactical flexibility in execution so we can be more responsive to customer needs. We already count many of the biggest names in broadcasting among our list of customers and we fully expect to capitalise on this position by becoming independent specialists.”

    Jörn Krieger | 27-08-2013

    EWE TEL, one of Germany's largest regional telecommunications providers, has chosen Swedish technology company Agama to deploy a monitoring solution for quality assurance of its IPTV platform.
    EWE TEL, which has almost 600,000 customers in northern Germany, offers an IPTV service available for a wide range of devices including TVs, PCs, tablets and smartphones. With refined head-end and network monitoring, the company aims to make service operations more effective and improve the end-user experience.
    "As a high-performing service provider, we need to provide our customers with the best viewing experience possible," said Jörn Seemann, manager operations of multimedia apps and server at EWE TEL. "It is important to us to have access to the right information at the right time, so that we can both work proactively to prevent problems affecting the service from occurring and act quickly in case of a detected problem. We found a perfect match in Agama's solution and know-how, and they have proven to be the obvious partner for our quality assurance activities."
    The selected solution, consisting of tailored analysers and a central enterprise server, covers advanced and real-time monitoring of EWE TEL's IPTV head-end as well as major edge QAM sites in the hybrid IP/RF network environment. It provides not only understanding of where problems originate, but also their distribution and impact on the customers' viewing experience, thereby enabling EWE TEL to discover problems quickly, ultimately leading to rapid and cost-effective TV service growth with high customer satisfaction.

    Arte aims to be less erudite
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 27-08-2013

    Eager to be less erudite and more rooted in the present than its last season's schedule, the French-German channel Arte is to pursue a strategy of mixing new genres and looking more to other regions including Europe.
    In France, the channel's audience share rose 1.9% over the first six months of 2013, up 12% compared to the same period in 2012.
    Arte wants to keep programmes inventive and will mix genres, lining up top European dramas, documentaries, webdocs and transmedia productions.
    Among key programmes announced include the Australian TV series Top of the Lake by director Jane Campion, slated for November, along with Rithy Panh's film about the genocide in Cambodia, The Missing Picture, due to air in October.
    Web innovation and transmedia content will also be part of the channel's new developments, including the criminal drama Intime Conviction, which will allow viewers to watch the investigation on TV and follow the trial on the Web.
    Ahead of European elections, part of the channel's programming will be dedicated to Europe, and a website is about to be launched.

    Full global TV ad recovery held up by lagging European market
    Editor | 28-08-2013

    A sluggish, recession-hit Europe is hampering a full global recovery in TV advertising according to a new report by Digital TV Research.
    In its TV Advertising Forecasts report, the analyst predicts that global TV advertising expenditure in the leading 55 markets will reach $219 billion in 2018, up by 32% from 2012. Overall, even though TV advertising spend grew by 4.4% in 2012 to $167 billion, Digital TV Research forecasts only 2.8% growth for 2013 due mainly to the continued economic hard times in several European territories. Digital TV Research added that 2012's figures were boosted by the traditional quadrennial effect that takes place in years with a US Presidential election, summer Olympics and the Euro football championships.
    Investigating where growth will take place, the analyst believes that TV advertising expenditure will more than double in Latin America between 2008 and 2018, due to the buoyant economies, Brazil hosting both the 2016 Olympics and 2014 football World Cup, but also because of high inflation in some countries, such as Argentina. TV advertising spend in Western Europe will only be 11% higher in 2018 than in the pre-recession year of 2008. Excluding the Russian market, TV advertising in Eastern Europe will still be lower in 2018 than the 2008 total.
    In absolute terms, North America wil account for the lion's share of net TV advertising expenditure by 2018, racking up $89.6 billion. It will be followed by Asia Pacific on $57.1 billion, Western Europe on $33.2 billion and the aforementioned Latin America on $21.4 billion. Of the $52.6 billion TV ad spend to be added between 2012 and 2018, $18.2 billion is forecast to come from the US, followed by an extra $5.6 billion from China, $4.6 billion from Brazil and $3.7 billion from Japan. However, Argentina, Brazil and Indonesia will record the fastest growth over the same period.

    Techex wins broadcast services deal for UK local TV platform
    Editor | 28-08-2013

    Comux UK, the community-owned multiplex operator, has selected Techex to design, commission and support the end-to-end broadcast network for the UK local TV broadcasting platform.
    UK broadcast regulator Ofcom awarded Comux a licence to build, operate and manage the local TV multiplex, with a plan for local TV broadcasting for the next 12 years. As Comux gets such an infrastructure in place, it says that it needed a technology partner that shared the company's long term view whilst also "bringing the flexibility that is vital to a new operator."
    "Building a digital terrestrial network based on an IP network in such a short timescale will require expert knowledge and a detailed design process," said Comux technical director Chris Romilly. "It will, however, deliver significant cost savings and assist greatly with the future scalability of the platform for the second and third phase of rollout. We selected the Techex team because they demonstrated to us the right combination of innovation and experience needed to deliver this project."
    Techex will design and install all the critical broadcast services from licensee contribution and central network management through to distribution, transmission and monitoring. It will also liaise with equipment vendors, third-party service providers and regulatory authorities to ensure the platform is launched within the proposed schedule whilst meeting all technical requirements. The company has already supplied IP-based broadcast systems to all tier-one UK broadcasters and firms such as Arqiva, Ofcom, DTG and other broadcast vendors.
    The firm believes that it can bring a unique understanding of the nature of the local TV platform and the need to be supportive of the individual requirements of each licensee. "We are proud to be delivering such a key part of the new local TV platform, and we strongly believe that Comux's community approach will lead to success for UK local TV," added Technical Director Richard Bailey.

    SpotXchange boosts monetisation with new UK sales exec
    Parent Category: News | 28-08-2013

    As the online video market hots up in terms of monetisation, SpotXchange has appointed a new director of publisher development for UK operations.
    The company claims to offer the largest global marketplace of video ad inventory, with more than 400 million auctions per day reaching 120 million unique visitors in over 60 countries each month.
    It has now turned to Nick Welch to be responsible for developing strategic relationships with publishers across the UK. Welch's recruitment follows the recent appointment of Ana Garcia in Spain and Sophie Davidas in France as business development directors for their respective countries.
    Commenting on his move, Welch said: "Having been involved with programmatic selling and buying at various points in my career, I have seen how the digital video ad market has grown and evolved. The opportunity to play a key role in the evolution of programmatic video for a business built on trust and industry-leading transparency is extremely exciting. This is a great time for publishers to evolve from a tactical to strategic play in programmatic video with SpotXchange as we continue to innovate on tools for the sell side that will maximise publishers' revenue."
    Added Andrew Moore, SpotXchange's European managing director: "This appointment will help bolster our work with premium publishers in the UK as they make the transition to an automated model. There is a real shift in the market from manual transactions to programmatic media buying and we look forward to leveraging Nick's expertise to get more publishers on-board as the programmatic revolution continues in digital video advertising."

    IPTV, OTT to drive 9% Western Europe pay-TV growth
    Editor | 28-08-2013

    New research from Analysys Mason is predicting that the number of households taking pay-TV services in Western Europe will increase by 9.2 million to 113.3 million, an 8.9% growth, between 2013 and 2018.
    In the report 'Pay-TV and OTT video services in Western Europe: forecasts and analysis 2013-2018', the analyst calculates that the number of Western European households taking up traditional pay-TV services – delivered via analogue or digital cable (including MMDS), IPTV, pay digital terrestrial TV (DTT) or satellite – will increase by 4.1 million to 107.7 million, representing 3.9% growth between 2013 and 2018.
    Analysys Mason noted that these figures for traditional pay-TV services belie substantial variations between the performances of individual platforms, with gains for some platforms nearly being offset by losses for others during the forecast period. Indeed the analysis suggests that cable households will decrease by 6.2% to 43.6 million between 2013 and 2018; pay-DTT households will decline by 7.7% to 4.9 million, a net reduction of 0.4 million as pay-DTT loses its momentum in major markets such as France, Germany and the UK; and satellite pay-TV households will increase by 3.7% to 31.6 million.
    By contrast, the report forecasts consistent growth for IPTV and over-the-top (OTT) and a move away from cable. Yet even though it states that OTT will grow much more strongly than traditional pay-TV services, Analysys Mason does not believe that cord-cutting will be that extreme, with the number of Western European households taking up OTT video services as a primary form of pay-TV increasing by 5.2 million during the period, from 0.4 million in 2013 to 5.6 million by the end of 2018.
    Instead, it expects the secondary TV set arena will bear the real brunt of OTT as traditional operators could broaden their reach with their own OTT services to these products. In terms of who will cash in on such growth, the survey points to existing pay-TV operators such as BSkyB with its NOW TV offering being successful in its battle against so-called 'pure-play' OTT video providers such as Netflix.
    The number of IPTV households is predicted to increase by 29.0% to 27.6 million, an increase of 6.2 million. Analysys Mason expects strong growth for IPTV in many countries, mostly because of aggressive bundling strategies by telcos, which are offering basic pay-TV services at little or no incremental cost within multi-play propositions in order to gain market share.
