    Eurodata TV to predict TV audience

    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 27-03-2014
    Hot on the heels of MIPTV, in April Eurodata TV will launch a new tool to predict the potential audience of a TV programme before it airs at an international level.
    Called PredicTV, this solution will allow companies to calculate a provisional audience for a new series or international TV format, according to the specifications of the programme in question: target, country, channel, date, length and genre. PredicTV initially takes into account the international performances of the format, recorded in other source countries.
    PredicTV is a decision-making process tool made for broadcasters, distributors, producers and live event planners who want to evaluate the potential international audience of a programme as an additional argument to sell, buy or schedule a format.
    PredicTV has been developed in collaboration with the British company Bucknull & Masson, a specialist in media research and planning.
    The model relies on audience data collected by Médiamétrie's division Eurodata TV Worldwide over nearly 20 years.
    Ten territories will be covered worldwide: Australia, Denmark, France, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, United States and the United Kingdom.

    iPlayer passes 300MN request mark for second successive month

    Editor | 27-03-2014
    It may not have reached the dizzy record-breaking heights of the previous month, but the BBC iPlayer enjoyed a strong February 2014, breaking the 300 million barrier for the second consecutive month.
    In addition to the sequential monthly figures, BBC iStats found that year-on-year overall iPlayer requests grew 15%, with average daily requests reaching 10.7 million and average weekly requests hitting 70 million, both of which are new records.
    There were 234 million on-demand and live TV requests in the month, slightly down on January's record-breaking figures, with mobile phone- and tablet-based requests continuing to increase their share of overall views to 46%. An eighth of requests were for live TV, up two percentage points month-on-month.
    In terms of popular programming, the opening episode of the new series of Top Gear generated over 3.2 million requests, placing it in the top ten most-requested programmes of all time. The final series of Outnumbered picked up almost two million requests and, despite its closure as a linear channel being announced, there were also a lot of BBC Three programmes in the top 20 this month with the new documentary The Truth About Webcam Girls and comedies Ja'mie: Private School Girl and Uncle all "doing well", according to the BBC.

    Antel takes the World Cup mobile

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 27-03-2014
    As an essential hook for its 4G LTE deployment, Uruguayan telco Antel is to launch an app to bring the World Cup's 64 matches to its high-speed customers in HD.
    The software has not been launched yet – the final release date will be set by FIFA – but it will be available for Android and iOS.
    Through the data plan Vera LTE, Antel's customers will have the opportunity to watch the games from different cameras, take pictures during the matches to share on social networks, get real-time statistics and record video.
    The Uruguayan public telco has been deploying its LTE network since December 2011 and all the district capitals already have an average coverage of 73%. In Montevideo, the coverage is 78%, while in Punta del Este has reached 99%.
    In addition to mobile networks, Antel has been investing in fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure in order to reinforce its pay-TV and Internet services. Over 700,000 Uruguayan homes now have access to the network, although only 275,000 are actually connected to it. One of Antel's goals for 2014 is to ensure that over half a million Uruguayans are connected to its FTTH service, while network deployment will continue.

    Antenna Hungária bought back by Hungarian State

    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 27-03-2014
    The Hungarian state-owned company NISZ, which provides governmental information and telecommunication operations and services, has bought back Antenna Hungária, a subsidiary of the French broadcast network service group TDF.
    The government decided to re-purchase Antenna Hungária, explaining that "as a result of this, the ownership of the strategically important nationwide terrestrial television and radio broadcasting and program distribution, as well as the satellite broadcasting and programme distribution falls back to the state".
    The operation will be completed on 30 May, and includes the purchase of the shares and the repayment of the loan provided by TDF to Antenna Hungária. The transaction is worth €180 million, for an adjusted EBITDA of approximately €18 million.
    In 2013, TDF launched a bid to sell 100% of Antenna Hungária shares, to which the Hungarian State applied as a buyer.
    Under TDF leadership, Antenna Hungária moved from the analogue TV world to the digital TV era and it also launched new services and technologies.

    AOL to launch first cross-screen programmatic advertising platform

    Editor | 27-03-2014
    As it accelerates its strategy to enhance its online TV and video business lines, AOL has unveiled plans for a new global programmatic advertising platform for brands, agencies and publishers.
    The ONE solution is designed to unite the teams and technology of AOP, MARKETPLACE and Adap.tv. It is a single platform that will give advertisers and their agencies brand insight and action across all screens including TV, video, display and mobile. AOL claims that the combination will ensure for the first time that clients will be able to plan, buy and execute campaigns across all screen formats from a single platform.
    Putting the opportunity into perspective, AOL calculates that even though UK programmatic spend will reach £6 billion by 2017, current estimates indicate that between £2.3 and £3.5 billion is currently lost on the multitude of ad technologies sitting between the advertiser and the publisher. AOL describes this as a "technology tax", and adds that as much as 58% of a client's spend is lost to mid-market feature-led companies. The clear message says AOL is that the advertising pound is not going as far as it should and the publisher on the other end is getting less and less.
    "Our industry has developed too many niche offerings and specialised services over the last 25 years, and chaos in ad tech is at an all-time high. The inefficiencies, ineffectiveness and expense of managing multiple teams, tools and metrics for display, mobile and video, across all devices, are stifling," said Bob Lord, CEO, AOL Platforms.
    "The holy grail of marketing is helping marketers understand how direct response and brand budgets can interact together," Lord added. "With the goal of driving economic efficiencies and media effectiveness, ONE ensures that data drives media selection and allocation, pricing and creative. It is the integrator of media across every screen and the automator of decisions that have long not needed human attention. I believe a platform like ONE – that is open and that doesn't discriminate – will win."

    Mediapro takes Formula One rights to LATAM

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 27-03-2014
    Spain's Mediapro has announced an agreement with Formula One World Championship to purchase the championship rights for the whole of Latin America (excluding Brazil).
    Until 2019, Mediapro will be able to produce an exclusive Formula One channel to sell in the region.
    The agreement includes the free-to-air (FTA) and pay-TV rights for every platform and device, giving a potential audience of over 400 million people. The deal also includes the Formula One-related brands, such as F1, Grand Prix, Formula 1 and FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
    According to the company, the F1 championship is one of the most important premium sports content worldwide and is essential for the Latin American market.
    Through the deal, Mediapro aims to reinforce its position in the world of sports broadcasting, in which it also holds the rights to La Liga.
    In Spain, Mediapro, which also participates in FTA channels like La Sexta, owns the rights of the European League, the Eurobasket League, Brazil's World Cup and the main European football leagues.
    Sports rights management has been growing in importance for the Catalan group, currently accounting for 35% of the company's income. Mediapro invoiced €1,387 million in 2013.

    TVE reports €113 million loss

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 27-03-2014
    For the second year in-a-row, having reported a €113 million loss, Spain's TVE has been unable to improve its financial situation, and its €860 million income (€92.3 million less than expected) for 2013 has not been enough to support its activities.
    The public network's administration council presented the 2013 figures which point to the need for additional income. While €1,200 million was invoiced in 2011 and €926 million in 2012, last year €860 million was billed by TVE, while €952 million was expected.
    According to TVE the fall in income is mostly due to the decrease of the taxes it receives. With the payment calculated on a profit base and the telco's commercial activity far from having recovered, the taxes paid to support the public network were €72 million less than expected.
    Still, TVE has spent 7.4% less in 2013 than in 2012, saving €77 million with respect to one year ago. However, the network's total bill is over €960 million, with €215.3 million assigned to audiovisual rights purchases (€47.2 million more than initially calculated).
    Spain's public network has been advertising-free since 2010, but due to its obvious financial problems it may start to sell some advertising space again – indeed, the sponsored programmes have been increased. Nothing has been officially announced as yet, but several sources have been pointing to the advertising solution during the last year.

    Azure lining in the cloud as blinkbox enhances online video management

    Editor | 27-03-2014
    As it scales up its multiscreen on-demand online video offering, blinkbox has made a significant investment in Microsoft Azure technology.
    The Tesco-owned service has enjoyed huge demand for its online films and TV shows over the last 12 months and reported a bumper Christmas in 2013. Sales via mobile devices (including tablets), games consoles, connected TVs and set-top boxes now account for over 65% of overall business, rocketing 674% year-on-year.
    Yet as it embarked on this expansion, blinkbox found that running its own data centre was getting prohibitively expensive and it was running out of the computing power necessary to encode its content catalogue quickly enough to get it to work on the multitude of devices and screen sizes the company needed to support.
    Explaining how its new technology is solving this problem, Jon Robinson, group head of IT at blinkbox, said: "Using Microsoft Azure has got this process down from weeks to just days or hours. It means we can make the latest movies and TV programmes available very quickly, so our customers can enjoy them as soon as they're released on whatever device they choose."
    Yet another issue to resolve involves storing data: at present blinkbox is adding 1.5 terabytes of new content daily, the equivalent of over 300 DVDs daily. "This is only going to grow as we ramp up to all of our content in full HD which will double our storage needs," Robinson added. "Beyond that, new video formats in future may mean we need even more storage and computing power. We felt that Microsoft Azure was the best solution to address these huge challenges and make sure our customers get the best experience possible."

    In a bid to strengthen its capabilities in media asset management (MAM), Dalet has signed a definitive agreement with Advent Venture Partners to acquire AmberFin.
    The parties have yet to ascribe a cash value to the deal, but Dalet says that the acquisition will give it added capabilities in the areas of in video ingest, complex media manipulation, transcoding and quality control (QC) solutions. It adds that the buyout affirms its "dominance" in MAM and media workflow management by creating end-to-end solutions that include MAM capabilities along with image processing, media transcoding and distribution.
    "This acquisition allows us to offer the industry the most advanced level of workflow options. AmberFin has been at the forefront in mastering media, including transcoding and video quality control," said Dalet CEO, David Lasry. "The company has spearheaded many widely adopted industry standards such as MXF and AS-02. Its talent and expertise directly complement Dalet's strengths in enterprise MAM-driven solutions ... By melding our resources and innovative technologies, we can enrich both the Dalet and AmberFin products to offer the most complete and forward-thinking solutions for content providers to optimise their human resources and media assets."
    Added AmberFin CEO Jeremy Deaner, who will be stepping down from his leadership position: "I am extremely proud of the AmberFin team and its accomplishments. Our award-winning, cutting-edge products are used by prominent broadcasters, content owners and post-production houses around the globe. It's very gratifying to know that by joining with Dalet [we can] meet the challenges of the constantly changing digital media landscape."

    NAB 2014: MobiTV, Ericsson sign up as Elemental hails dawn of software-defined video

    Editor | 08-04-2014
    Elemental Technologies has kicked off NAB 2014 with a series of deals that it says highlights an industry shift to software-defined video processing.
    As part of this transition Elemental has announced that MobiTV is using Elemental video processing solutions to support its cloud-based video delivery platform and Ericsson has integrated Elemental technology within its Virtualised Encoding Solution.
    Fundamentally the company believes that software-defined video (SDV) solutions take an infrastructure-agnostic approach to implementing flexible, scalable and easily upgradable video architectures. This, it adds, when compared with legacy solutions, allows video providers to deploy software across an optimal combination of dedicated and virtualised resources in both private and public data centres.
    For its part, MobiTV, a deliverer of live and on-demand TV everywhere solutions, is using Elemental Live and Elemental Server to deliver more than 40 HD television channels – including live news and sports and a variety of full-episode on-demand shows – for streaming or download to hundreds of devices through multiple pay-TV, wireless and OTT partners.
    "The video quality, content volume, variety of formats, and the ability to support HEVC through a software upgrade is a combination unique to Elemental in the video processing market," said MobiTV COO Bill Routt, explaining the partnership. "Together with Elemental's industry-leading video processing solutions, we are able to continue delivering new innovations in video streaming technology for our customers."
    Designed to remove the complexity of TV anywhere video processing, Ericsson Virtualised Encoding is claimed to be the industry's first software solution for intelligent utilisation of multiple encoding resources regardless of the platform, allocating resources and simplifying the process of selecting the right encoding method and platform based on the operator's priorities for deployment speed, video quality and output.
    "By expanding Ericsson Virtualised Encoding to also support Elemental software encoding, we are enabling TV service providers to efficiently address the growing complexity of multiscreen TV service delivery within a single solution," said Dr Giles Wilson, head of TV compression for Ericsson. "As providers strive to address consumer demand for TV anywhere, we are focused on helping them make the right choices with their multiscreen video processing deployments."
