    HEVC to give kick to MPEG Encoder market
    Joseph O'Halloran | 01-02-2014

    Contribution encoders which see use compressing video streams coming from cameras, trucks or venues—and also compressing streams as they are moved between studios—are set to enjoy a renaissance according to new data from SNL Kagan MRG.
    According to its MPEG Broadcast Contribution Encoders report, the market will reach about $320 million based on more than 20,000 units shipping in 2017 driven by a large extent by the rollout of HEVC technology which itself will be a key enabler in the dwelivery of 4KTV and UltraHD services. With the first demos of HEVC contribution encoding equipment imminent and the first shipments expected later in 2014, SNL Kagan MRG expects that the mobile and fixed segments of the market will deploy HEVC encoders in different time frames with those using cellular transmission equipment moving first.
    The analyst see further traction driven by the fact there are many broadcasters yet to replace SD MPEG-2 equipment with new HD H.264 equipment and so predicts that by 2017 SD encoders will account for 13% of the market compared with 35% in 2013. ASPs are set to decline markedly year on year and so SNL Kagan MRG forecasts that vendors will need to increase their shipments each year to keep their revenues stable with higher prices for HEVC encoders will help with revenue.
    Other trends that SNL Kagan MRG believes will shape the market are video transmission via the unmanaged Internet, in other words over the top (OTT) services, 4K content production and the need to reduce expenses at the same time as the demand for more and more video content is increasing.
    “Though there will be shifts in the market with some segments growing more slowly than others, the overall contribution encoder market will grow in 2014 after declining in 2013,” explains senior analyst Michelle Abraham. “We will see the normal seasonal patterns with greater shipments in even years for major events like the World Cup and the Olympics. Cellular newsgathering equipment is relatively new in the market, so there is a higher growth trajectory projected for that segment of the market.”

    Prisa wants Telefónica to increase bid for Canal+
    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 01-02-2014

    Telefónica wants to buy Prisa's 56% of Canal+ and has offered €600-€700 million, but the editorial group wants substantially more and has decided to pressure the telco by opening the process to other bidders, namely Al Jazeera, News Corporation, Liberty Global and Vivendi.
    According to El Economista, the bid's first period concluded on Friday, but Prisa didn't get any satisfactory offer. Only Telefónica is close to offering what Prisa wants, as News Corporation has offered €200 million for the pay-TV platform. Al Jazeera and Vivendi's offers remain under wraps and Liberty Global has recently shown interest in buying ONO, which may drive it to lose interest in Canal+.
    Prisa is struggling under a huge debt, although it has managed to refinance the most immediate instalments. According to the newspaper, around €900 million needs to be paid in 2015, which is why the company will be looking forward to selling Canal+ for such an amount. It will get enough cashflow to pay the debt while abandoning the TV business, one of Prisa's main objectives for the coming years.
    The media group has been trying to sell Canal+ for a long time and is said not to be in a hurry to close the deal, prioritising profitability over rapidity. The plight of the pay-TV platform is not helping to solve the situation, as Canal+ keeps dropping subscriptions and has to face the increasing prices of broadcasting football rights.

    Sales of consumer tech goods drop 2% in France
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 13-02-2014

    Technical goods consumption in France last year dropped 2% to reach €15.4 billion, but high demand for smartphones and tablet should pave the way for growth in 2014.
    According to GfK, sales of high-tech devices were seriously impacted by a marked decrease in TV set revenue, but the continuing fall since 2010 of the TV market is being compensated by the strong growth in smartphone and tablet sales.
    TV sales dropped by 15% to 5.7 million units last year, with a fourth of these being smart TVs.
    In contrast, French consumers bought 23.7 million mobile phones and smartphones in 2013, against 22.9 million in 2012. 6.2 million tablets found new users too.
    In 2014, GfK predicts a 0.7% growth for technical goods, to €15.6 million, mainly drawn from the telecom sector.
    Showing a current equipment level of 29% per household, tablet sales also should rise up to 7.5 million units.

    Parent Category: News | 13-02-2014
    The interactive music channel dooloop, which German media group RTL launched on the Internet in June 2012, is now also available on TV sets.
    Music fans wanting to access the free-of-charge, advertising-financed service need a connected TV set hooked up to the Internet and compliant with interactive multimedia standard HbbTV.
    Viewers can decide whether they want to lean back and watch dooloop's linear music selection like a conventional TV channel or whether they want to customise the music videos to their personal taste by indicating whether they like them or not.
    The service which is available on the TV channel slots of RTL and VOX can now be used on four screens: TVs, PCs, tablets and smartphones. Besides the video-on-demand (VOD) services under the Now brand and the Clipfish channels Music, Comedy and Anime, dooloop is the eighth TV service operated by German RTL group for connected TV sets.

    Singtel on song with mioTV
    Editor | 13-02-2014
    Incumbent Singapore telco SingTel has reported a strong end to 2013 with mio TV IPTV subscribers up significantly.
    For its third quarter ended 31 December 2013, Singtel had 418,000 mio TV customers, up from 414,000 at the end of September 2013 and 398,000 at the same time in 2012. mio TV also increased its revenues by 41%.
    Attempting to reasons for the rise, Singtel noted that mio TV has enlarged its Chinese and English content offerings with the introduction of the cHK and RTL-CBS channels.
    Yet just as the expanded content suite was providing a boost, fixed broadband revenue was dampened by promotional offers for fibre broadband services including waiver of installation charges, discounts and speed upgrades in light of the intense competitive environment. Customers on bundled triple/quad-play services increased by 7.7% to 364,000 as at 31 December 2013.

    Second screen apps, enhanced DVR key for pay-TV ops’ future success
    Editor | 13-02-2014
    As they battle it out for subscribers in a TV anywhere world, pay-TV operators will be using value-added services like second-screen apps and enhanced DVR capabilities to both attract and maintain customers, says Infonetics Research.
    In its Multiscreen TV Service Strategies and Vendor Leadership: Global Service Provider Survey, Infonetics sees such devices as tapping into the new world of TV where convergence is happening in the living room between smartphones, tablets and connected TVs. Indeed it says that for most pay-TV providers, the tablet has become the de facto second screen: 47% of respondent operators support tablets as part of their multiscreen service now, growing to 89% by 2015.
    "Pay-TV operators are simultaneously grappling with how to address the desire among subscribers to take their content with them wherever they go, whenever they go," explained Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. "The net result is a major change in what equipment pay-TV operators invest in to ingest, encode, transcode, and play out video content, as well as how they negotiate with content owners for the right to distribute content across multiple formats."
    "In a growing number of markets, pay-TV providers find themselves at a crossroads … their traditional business models are under attack as telco IPTV providers, over-the-top (OTT) providers and consumer electronics companies - Netflix, LOVEFiLM, Amazon, Hulu, Apple, Samsung, and others - continue to divert revenue away from them.”
    Infonetics noted that despite the need for multiscreen among pay-TV operators, it was still a relatively new service offering for many, making it necessary for multiscreen equipment vendors to demonstrate the reliability of their products and provide support to customers.
