    TV Record claims viewing leadership for second year running

    Editor
    | 20 May 2014

    Claiming to be the world's largest Portuguese speaking broadcaster, TV Record has released viewership data which it says makes it the most-watched general content TV station for the second consecutive year in Portugal. Broadcasting for over 60 years, TV Record offers Portuguese TV channels in more than 150 countries.

    Indeed according to the data quoted from research firm GFK, for the last seven years TV Record has grown 511% in Portuguese territory.

    On the back of this, the channel has now opened a new headquarters in Lisbon from where it will launch its HDTV signal in Portugal, with plans to phase it up to all Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. This move, says TV Record, also makes it the general content channel with the largest HD production and broadcasting facility in Portugal.

    "Now we have one of the most modern and best equipped TV Station in Portugal,' commented CEO Marcelo Cardoso.

    ANGA COM 2014: ARRIS unveils new fibre-based, STB, gateway solutions

    Editor
    | 20 May 2014

    As it aims to address the needs of operators obliged to expand service bouquets, ARRIS has launched new broadcast technology solutions designed to offer fibre-deep delivery and also a range of new CPE.

    ARRIS believes that providers increasingly face the challenges of providing expanded service offerings, more content, and delivering better quality experiences to keep up with consumer demand to capitalise on new revenue opportunities. It is confident that with what it calls its 'transformative' solutions it can address these challenges by expanding capacity and bandwidth with lower costs, space and power requirements than competitive solutions.

    Indeed the new multi-wavelength transmitters, optical nodes and RF amplifiers are attributed with not only giving global providers the ability to place growing need for delivering fibre deeper into networks, but also allow them to reduce cost, space and operational complexity.

    "As service providers work towards expanding subscriber offerings and capacity while strictly managing costs, ARRIS brings a broad set of high density and highly efficient fibre deep product options to support extended HFC, RFoG, PON along with other solutions," commented ARRIS president of access networks John Caezza. "Our portfolio is designed to support the cost effective optimisation of today's networks, while staging for future growth in an efficient and versatile manner."

    Complementing these are the additions to the company's European cable CPE portfolio which include new EuroDOCSIS gateways and DVB set-tops. These are designed, says the company, to offer enhanced content experiences in the home while allowing cable operators to transform broadband and video delivery services. That is addressing consumer demand for quick and reliable content access on a variety of devices with the latest wireless technology and what ARRIS ARRIS calls cost-effective, attractive form factors.

    The range includes EuroDOCSIS 3.0 wireless EMTA and gateways; a hybrid DVB-C/IP set-top featuring an embedded DOCSIS modem which enables the return path for access to interactive services such as video on demand, catch-up TV and nDVR; a digital terminal adapter (DTA); and technology enabling cable operators to deliver HDTV content to subscribers and facilitating the migration of subscribers to all digital and IP-based services.

    Eutelsat to sell off KabelKiosk VOD platform to M7A

    Editor
    | 20 May 2014

    Consolidating its service offerings, leading satellite operator Eutelsat is to sell its KabelKiosk German on-demand video platform to the M7A Group.

    The KabelKiosk digital channels and interactive services, which have been taken up by a number of cable and IPTV networks in Germany and M7A, is regarded by Eutelsat as being well positioned to ensure the platform's continuing development, including the launch of its new IPTV and OTT video delivery platforms.

    Michel de Rosen, chairman and CEO of Eutelsat, commented: "Having built a strong video distribution platform in Germany it is now time for a new shareholder to drive KabelKiosk forward as it embarks on a new chapter of expansion. Following the recent launch by M7 of its new Hungarian pay-TV venture from our 9° East video neighbourhood, the transaction announced today strengthens our relationship with the M7 group of companies. I take this opportunity, on behalf of all at Eutelsat, to express our appreciation to the KabelKiosk team, led by Martina Rutenbeck and Alessandro Lanfranconi, for the energy and dedication they have applied to building a vibrant business that is well positioned to move ahead with its next phase of growth."

    The deal includes a long-term agreement for the lease of multiple transponders at Eutelsat's 9° East orbital position. Eutelsat will also continue to provide uplink services for the KabelKiosk platform from its teleports in Italy and France. Eutelsat and M7 Deutschland, the brand under which the M7A Group trades, will also establish a strategic partnership for connected TV, combining broadcast and on-demand video services.

    "The acquisition of KabelKiosk is an excellent opportunity for us to enter into the German market for TV platform operators," added M7 Deutschland managing director Kees Färber. "We are confident that KabelKiosk will further grow its existing cable business, as well as achieve additional growth through the exciting new opportunities provided by the new IPTV and OTT delivery platforms."

    OTT uptake trims pay-TV revs as IPTV providers boost STB market

    Editor
    | 20 May 2014

    Research firm Infonetics has revised downwards its predictions for the pay-TV market just as it calculates that a growing IPTV sector will spur the global set-top box (STB) industry.

    Overall, the analyst calculates that the global pay-TV market — encompassing cable, satellite and IPTV players— totaled $221 billion in 2013, a 5% increase year-on-year, with a similar gain in subscriber numbers in the second half of 2013 to 756 million.

    Infonetics found that the ggrowth resulted from pay-TV providers in mature markets increasing average revenue per user (ARPU) among slow-growing/declining subscriber bases, and from operators in emerging markets continuing to see significant subscriber growth. Yet it warned that long-term growth was on a downward trend as pay-TV firms finally feel the heat from the over-the-top (OTT) sector.

    "As a result of increasing competition from OTT players and the service providers themselves using broadband video as a lower-priced offering, we believe overall video services ARPU and revenue growth will be constrained and, accordingly, have reduced our 2017 pay-TV revenue forecast by 35% globally, from $401 billion to just under $260 billion," cautioned Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay-TV at Infonetics Research.

    On a brighter note, a key driver in the subscriber growth in 2013 was a resurgent IPTV market in which, added Infonetics, providers were planning significant uptake of set-top boxes with 802.11ac in 2015. 802.11n dual-mode and 2x2 MIMO are currently the most widely-used WiFi technologies on IP set-top boxes, though 802.11ac shows the biggest gains among survey participants, growing from 6% today to 67% in 2015.

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 20 May 2014

    Metástasis, the Latin American adaptation of Breaking Bad, is to premiere on Univision, UniMás and Galavision simultaneously on 8 June.

    The series will regularly air on UniMás from Monday to Friday.

    As in the original AMC story, the series depicts the life-altering transformation of Walter Blanco, a modest high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Weighing his limited options and finances, Walter realises that he is willing to do just about anything to ensure that his pregnant wife and disabled son are well provided for when he is gone.

    Metástasis is a Sony Pictures Television production and recreates the spellbinding story in a Latin American setting, giving the characters authentic Latino identities that will resonate with UniMás viewers. Its cast includes Colombian stars Diego Trujillo as Walter Blanco, Roberto Urbina as José Miguel, Sandra Reyes as Cielo Blanco and Julián Arango as Henry Navarro, among others.

    Micsur sees content distribution deal, webseries

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 20 May 2014

    Over 150 producers, 15 public networks, eight festival managers and other representatives of the TV industry recently met at Micsur (Mercado de Industrias Culturales del Sur) which took place in Argentina's Mar de Plata.


    The event resulted in content distribution deals and the shared production of a webseries.

    During the conference, at which cinema, music and theatre were discussed alongside TV, Argentina's public TV network organised an international workshop during which the basis for a content distribution agreement between the region's channels was settled.

    In addition to this, and driven by Colombia's production company Catapulta Producciones, companies from five of the participating countries agreed to create a webseries.

    During the four-day event, cultural producers from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, Uruguay and Paraguay shared their ideas and studied new business opportunities.

    "More than 3,000 visitors, 1,200 producers, 80 workshops ... These are the figures of an event betting on small and medium-size enterprises and young producers," explained Rodolfo Hamawi, Argentina's director for cultural industries. "Micsur is here to stay, grow and develop," he added.

    In two years, the event is going to be held in Colombia's capital Bogotá and in 2018 it will take place in Brazil.

    New alliance aims to address mobile video hurdles as UK demands multiscreen services

    Editor
    | 20 May 2014

    Even though the country is rapidly expanding 4G networks to a large base of smartphones and tablets, UK mobile video is still facing serious challenges, says a new consortium setting out to resolve them.

    The Mobile Video Alliance (MVA) will endeavour to provide solutions for the current problems associated with the delivery of video content to mobile devices. It will identify, develop and advocate technologies that harmonise the delivery of audio visual content to mobile devices, with the aim of providing a reliable and enjoyable experience for consumers. Founded by mobile operator EE and global interconnection and data centre company Equinix, the MVA has now moved under the auspices of DTG, the UK industry association for digital television.

    "Video is already the biggest driver of traffic on our 4G network, and that is only set to grow and grow. A superfast network and high performance devices make mobile video a reality, but we now have to work with content owners and broadcasters to really enhance the customer experience," commented EE network strategy manager Matt Stagg. "The MVA provides the opportunity to do that, and make a real difference to the way people consume video on the go."

    The initiative was launched at the DTG's Summit in London by Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries Ed Vaizey who said: "The Mobile Video Alliance is an exciting new initiative that will dramatically improve the experience of watching video on mobile devices, opening up new opportunities for consumers, broadcasters and content providers."

    At the event, Vaizey also presented the conclusion of an 18-month collaborative industry project, the Future of Innovation in Television Technology (FITT) task-force which aimed to clarify a number of important issues, opportunities and challenges facing the UK television industry.

    Many of the recommendations were guided by consumer trend data and projections that showed that although viewing to the main television set remains stable, it is increasingly augmented by viewers choosing to watch on any device, any time both inside and outside of the home. The task-force believes that these trends coupled with the increasing connectivity of devices, people and content create massive business potential for UK media companies. However, consumer anxieties about privacy remain the biggest barrier to realising these ambitions, and this highlights the need for transparency from providers – potentially delivered via an industry-led review of self-regulation – and digital literacy programmes for consumers.

    "We will take careful note of the specific recommendations for government and will work closely with the industry-led Next Generation TV Planning Programme," Vaizey added.

    David Docherty, chairman of the FITT task-force and of the DTG said in response to the report and recommendations: "The UK TV industry is an amazing success story, with an enviable heritage of innovating in television technology. But it's facing unprecedented challenges to its ability to compete, let alone lead. The FITT report is testament to the resolve that exists within the industry to deliver innovation that consumers and viewers want and to keep the UK TV technology industry globally competitive."

    Clarovideo takes Cannes to Latin America

    Juan Fernandez Gonzalez
    | 20 May 2014

    The video streaming platform Clarovideo is to broadcast five films from Blood Window, a selection of horror movies which will premiere in Cannes' Marché du Film.

    Through the video-on-demand (VOD) service, América Móvil's company will be the first to bring the five movies to the Latin American audience.

    The series of films, which are all directed or produced in the region, comprise Naturaleza Muerta (directed by the Argentinean Gabriel Grieco), the Mexican movie El Incidente, Capa Caída (directed by Spanish Santiago Alvarado), the Venezuelan film La Casa del Fin de los Tiempos and Argentina's El Día Trajo la Oscuridad.

    Clarovideo is also using social TV to promote this film package. Under the hashtags #clarovideo and #cannes2014, the platform aims to keep the audience up-to-date with the cinema event.

    As with other similar promotions in which Clarovideo streams the movies immediately after or even at the same time as they appear at the cinema, the films will be available pay-per-view on the Internet as well as through Telmex for customers of the Mexican telco.

    Since the beginning of the year, América Móvil's streaming platform has been betting on bringing blockbuster films to the audience as soon as possible, trying to distinguish its offer in an increasingly competitive market
