    Russia voices HbbTV concerns
    November 2, 2013 08.46 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

    RTRSRussia seems unprepared for HbbTV despite plans by the Russian Television and Broadcasting Network (RTRS) to launch a hybrid TV platform on its network in 2014.
    Quoted by AKTR and Comnews, RTRS’s deputy director general Victor Pinchuk said that broadcasters should make themselves fully conversant with what will be a new advertising market now, otherwise they would have difficulties in catching up afterwards.
    Interestingly, there is also a lesson to learn from Teletext, which was actively promoted in Russia in the early 1990s but failed to make an impression on either broadcasters or indeed viewers.
    Russian broadcasters may also feel it is too early to introduce HbbTV, given that the country has yet to launch its second multiplex, for which TV channels have already paid RTRS for carriage.
    Earlier this year, RTRS announced that it was testing three HbbTV platforms.
    It planned to launch pilots in three large cities, each with a population of over one million, employing DVB-T2 consoles with internet connections.

    Three million Spaniards watch internet TV
    November 2, 2013 08.31 Europe/London By Robert Briel

    LG_connectedtvOver three million Spanish internet users (18% of all internet users) watch online TV, mainly through consoles and smart TVs.
    Movies, TV series and sports are the most watched items on connected TVs, although alternative uses such as music, radio listening, playing video games and accessing social networks are also reported.
    The study also shows that 19% of online video users have paid to see content, according to the report, which was published by the Interactive Advertising in Spain.
    The 18 % of internet users that connect their TVs to the internet via other devices, are mostly males, young and with at least a college level education. The research also shows that three million individuals have connected TV and nearly ten million know the concept, but do not have it at home. Among those who do not have it, the main barrier is the lack of appropriate technology (41%) rather than lack of interest (25%).
    While traditional TV is consumed on a daily basis, connected TV is used on a weekly frequency. It focuses, like traditional TV, on prime time but is more used for individual consumption.
    Smart TV penetration in Spain is 21%, but the report says that only 36% of those with a smart TV actually use it.
    Connected TV users access content via an average of 4.4 devices, including laptops, desktops, smartphones, consoles and STBs. According to the survey, connected TV consumption is not reducing the use of other devices, but maintaining it, with 64% connecting with devices they already own.
    The complete study from Interactive Advertising Bureau Spain on connected TV usage in the country can be downloaded here (NOTE the report is only available in Spanish).

    Spanish cutting the traditional TV cord
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 03-11-2013

    More than 30% of connected TV users in Spain say they have radically reduced their traditional TV consumption.
    Some 52% of them point out that they watch TV in equal amounts, divided between traditional TV and other devices such as the Internet or on consoles or mobile devices, according to a report by the IAB (Interactive Advertising Bureau). Besides, 61% recognize that they are gradually increasing the use of these devices.
    The figures are based on the 3 million users that have already connected their TV to the Internet, mostly through a smart TV or a console.
    According to IAB's report, the connected TV owners use it from a multiscreen environment. On average, 4.4 devices are used to watch TV or online video, with smartphones the most used platform (84% of them), followed by computers (78%) and consoles (50%).
    Regarding consumption habits, the connected TV has not yet completely taken the place of the traditional one. Although the users watch TV through connected devices almost every day, is during prime time when the connected screens are most used.
    The on-demand (VOD) platforms are also popular among connected TV owners. 78% say they use VOD to catch up with shows that they were not able to watch on schedule. Over 60% of them say they don't rent or buy physical movies any more, as they can watch them online though different platforms.
    Thus, the online video sites are also increasing their visitors. 96% of Internet users watch video online, with films and series among the favorite content. Youtube (71%) and the VOD platforms Google TV (14%), Yomvi (12%) and Wuaki (11%) are the most-used platforms.
    “The digital world has arrived to the offline device par excellence, pointing to a new wave which is going to change consumption habits and ads investments”, said Javier Clarke, mobile and new media director at IAB Spain.
    “We are facing a big challenge, the need of producing and developing the best advertising formats to get to this new kind of viewer”, added Scott McCarthy, director of YuMe, multi-screen digital video advertising company. “The connected TV in Spain has become a reality.”

    World Cup TV demands drive Network Broadcast growth
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 03-11-2013

    Network Broadcast has been focusing on the Brazilian market, where it has experienced significant growth during the past year, especially in the south of the country. This has been driven, according to the company, by the support needs generated by the 2014 World Cup, which will be held in Rio.
    The company has been analysing the evolution of the market and future challenges in Latin America at Jornadas de Capacitación
    2013, an event held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in October. The new interface for set-top-boxes (STB) NBGUI was unveiled at the event. The product focuses on local producers, offering a flexible system that can be adapted to multiple broadcasting needs.
    “Company professionalism has to be very high," said Alejandro Cubino, Network Broadcast's president, referring to the need to focus on Brazil's World Cup, which is generating a high demand for TV services and equipments.
    Aftersales and consultancy services seem to be behind Network Broadcast's increasing operations in the region. “The synergy generated by this kind of services makes us able to keep and strengthen a feedback relation between client and provider, which is essential for our tasks”, added Judson Vieira, business development engineer.

    Qualcomm set to disrupt STB market
    Joseph O'Halloran | 03-11-2013

    With Intel said to be pulling the plug on its product line and box making incumbents looking for new directions, the set top box market is in some flux and inside the box Qualcomm looks set to change the STB industry.
    Indeed according to a new research not from the Consumer Electronics Service at IHS, says the mobile semiconductor giant is “muscling” its way into the STB chip business. The analyst predicts that this move will shake up the market’s competitive landscape, being a serious contender to the current duopoly held by Broadcom, and STMicroelectronics (STM) who lead a $2 billion market for set-top box processors
    “For several years now, the lucrative market for STB audio-visual processors has been dominated by Broadcom and STM,” said Jordan Selburn, senior principal analyst, consumer platforms, at IHS. “While a handful of vendors also competed, mostly with chips targeted at lower-performance systems, the two powerhouses virtually owned the high-end market and accounted for roughly 80% of total STB processor revenue. Now Qualcomm has entered the STB market, and the incumbent leaders will face a serious challenger that has its sights set on domination.”
    IHS adds that the sub-segments being targeted by Qualcomm, including home multimedia gateways, thin clients and residential gateways, are nearly greenfield opportunities where the well-established incumbents may have less of an advantage. It suggests that Qualcomm’s scale and expertise place it as a legitimate contender for new design wins in these areas.
    The research also observed that Qualcomm is entering the STB space via the Snapdragon 600 MPQ8064, a chip featuring the company’s quad-core version of an ARM-based architecture called Krait, which can process High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) of a 1080p high-definition signal, though not the next-generation UltraHD signals.

    Winners of the first FORMATS ASIA Awards announced
    Louise Duffy | 03-11-2013

    The winners of the first FORMATS ASIA Awards, which were held during annual conference and networking event at the CASBAA Convention, have been announced.
    The Apprentice Asia (Sony SPE) won the Best Use of a Global Format in Asia award. The show pits aspiring young Asian entrepreneurs against each other in "the world's toughest job interview" for a chance to work for Malaysian entrepreneur Tony Fernandes.
    In the Best Original Asian Format category, the award went to The Challenger Muay Thai (Imagine Group). The series pits 16 world-class fighters against each other to win the ultimate title of Muaythai World Champion and US$100,000 in prize money.
    Rounding off the awards in the Best Non-Entertainment Format in Asia category was Jobs Around The World (MediaCorp TV). Bryan Wong and Kym Ng take viewers out of their comfort zone in an educational and cultural exploration of interesting, unusual and often surprising jobs across Asia.
    FORMATS ASIA 2013 examined recent developments in China, explored relationships with sponsors and advertisers, investigated types of programming that work well in Asia, and focused on the emergence of drama and factual formats.
    James Ross, founder of FORMATS ASIA, and CEO of Lightning International - the organiser of the event, said: "I'm absolutely thrilled at this year's event. We had some great discussions and debates, we saw a lot of examples of how formats are being localised within Asia, and we celebrated with our first Formats Asia Awards winners. The industry in Asia is really picking up, and judging by the sentiments coming from the sessions, we've got a lot of opportunities to capture for our partners, and the entire industry has plenty of business to capitalise on.
    "Overall, this year's event focused on the need for creating great content, since ultimately, good material will always capture the imagination and attention of viewers. Broadcasters in Asia are also increasingly realising how formats can make their job easier. Formats are not just great ideas from popular brands. They are a complete "how-to-do-it" package, a proven blueprint that encapsulates the intelligence, insights and experience learned and gained by previous producers."

    Euronics takes Tooway to German high streets
    Jörn Krieger | 04-11-2013

    Euronics, one of Germany's leading electronics retailer chains, has teamed up with Eutelsat and its German partner getinternet to take the Internet via satellite service Tooway to German high streets for consumers outside the range of conventional broadband services.
    Euronics comprises 1,700 independent electrical retailers who run more than 1,900 shops across Germany. The agreement with Eutelsat will enable them to offer Tooway which provides 20Mbps downlink speed and 6Mbps uplink speed through Eutelsat's KA-SAT satellite. The service operates via a small satellite dish and a modem connected to the PC or home network. Additional services such as VoIP and TV channels are also available from Euronics and can be delivered via Tooway.
    With Eutelsat's support, Euronics retailers have already trained the first 100 employees on the performance and features of Tooway. Eutelsat's partner getinternet will contribute to installing and connecting customer terminals. The system can also be self-installed by consumers.
    "We see many customers in rural areas or on the outskirts of cities and large towns penalised by insufficient broadband speeds," said Peter Koßmann, head of telecommunications at Euronics. "The innovative satellite service we are adding to our consumer electronics portfolio allows us to resolve this problem, bringing customers broadband wherever they are. Tooway can also be used to receive TV channels with the highest picture quality on smart TVs and OLEDs simply with the addition of a small piece of hardware to the dish."
    Udo Neukirchen, Eutelsat director of sales & marketing for Tooway in Germany, added: "Euronics' specialist retailers and their staff are truly in touch with their customers' needs. Their high street presence, knowledge and customer oriented approach, combined with the Tooway service and the installation expertise of getinternet will significantly contribute to closing the digital divide in Germany."
