    Asia TV deploys Aframe cloud platform

    Rebecca Hawkes | 08 October 2015


    US-based distributor of South Asian content Asia TV has streamlined its global video production operation with an Aframe cloud platform.


    The distributor, which provides pay-TV network Zee TV and its Z Living health and entertainment brand to viewers in the US, claims it is now able to move video without delay between advertisers and its offices on the US east and west coasts, Mumbai, London and Singapore.

    "Aframe has let us eliminate all of the waiting and realise huge savings in shipping costs. More importantly, we no longer have to wait for hard drives and tapes to reach their destinations or worry about damage or corruption of the media," said Mike Tuttle, broadcast operations manager, Asia TV USA.

    "We store our entire library on Aframe so if clients want something in its original format we just send a link and the delivery is done."

    The distributor's Aframe seats are used globally for a range of tasks. In LA, the creative team uses Aframe to preview shows and find clips for promos, while the New York sales team use it to receive and review ads from clients, then forward the links for broadcast. Syndication teams elsewhere in the world use Aframe to download low-res clips to iPads to take to client meetings.

    With Z Living expanding into Latin America, Russia and Dubai, Asia TV's team in Mumbai creates NTSC and PAL versions of the network's Hindi content in an unmixed format so it can be overdubbed in Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic and Russian.

    It is then uploaded to Aframe for the Miami team to translate it, upload it to Aframe for the New Jersey team to pull down, compose in the Avids, before uploading the show masters to Aframe for broadcast.

    "What we have in place is truly a worldwide workflow," added Tuttle. "I can't imagine how we could run our current operations or drive our push into Latin America without utilising a cloud-based solution."

    CTH opts for Magine TV's mobile TV platform

    Rebecca Hawkes | 08 October 2015


    Swedish over-the-top (OTT) platform developer Magine TV is supplying Thai cable network CTH with a cloud-based system to deliver video content to mobile devices.


    CTH will provide live streaming and catch-up functionality across its range of sports and entertainment programming, through the deal with Magine TV.

    "This is a major step for Magine, and marks our first move into the Asian market. Live sports events such as Premier League football matches are integral to CTH's offering, and create a huge demand on OTT platforms in terms of the number of users streaming concurrently," said Ambuj Goyal, CEO, Magine TV.

    "Picture quality and low latency are features that Magine TV has developed to cope with such demand, and we are confident that in these areas we can offer CTH and other broadcasters an unparalleled service, as demonstrated through Magine TV's service in Germany throughout FIFA World Cup in 2014," he added.

    Amarit Sukhavanij, CEO, CTH, commented: "We are delighted to ... move CTH into an area of offering which is becoming more and more relevant in Thailand. The significance of this alliance cannot be overstated because the demands of being a pay TV broadcaster requires a constant need to innovate our business, our offering, and who we are, to ensure that our subscribers are connected to the best there is. This relationship with Magine allows us to address these objectives."

    Nickelodeon to launch India's first kids' channel in HD

    Rebecca Hawkes | 08 October 2015


    Nick HD+ is destined to become India's first high definition (HD) children's channel, when launched by Viacom18, the joint venture between Viacom and Network 18, in November.


    NICK HDThe Nickelodeon channel will comprise both international and local content, including a new animated action comedy series called Shiva, which is scheduled for launch this Diwali.

    "Nickelodeon has always stayed ahead of the curve with its innovative and engaging initiatives, keeping kids at the core of everything that we do. Endearing characters, path-breaking content and pioneering initiatives have scripted Nickelodeon's leadership and success story. The launch of Nick HD+ and Shiva are significant milestones in the category," said Nina Elavia Jaipuria, Viacom18 EVP and business head of kids cluster.

    Comprising an initial 26 episodes of 22 minutes duration, Shiva will be aired during prime afternoon and evening slots. The action centres around nine-year old Shiva who lives in a city called Veda, and, with the help of his friends and magical bicycle and a deadly watch, repeatedly saves his city from impending doom.

    "Characters are very important in this genre. It's not the channel that the kids relate to, but the character. We have seen immense success with characters like Motu and Patlu and Ninja Hatori. This time, we developed the entire concept and script in-house because we want to own the character completely," Jaipuria told Business Standard.

    "This way we can do much more with Shiva in the coming months beyond television," she added.

    Shiva is created by Maya Digital Studios and directed by Suhas Kadav.

    Nick HD+ will be available on all of India's major pay-TV platforms, both direct-to-home (DTH) and cable.

    ESPN returns to South Asia with MSM joint venture

    Rebecca Hawkes | 08 October 2015

    Sports broadcaster ESPN is returning to the Indian market after a three-year absence by forging an equal partnership with Multi Screen Media (MSM), Sony Television's local operator.


    Disney-owned ESPN, which dissolved its 50:50 joint venture with Star India in 2012, says it will now work with MSM to bring co-branded sports channels and a multi-sport website and app to the Indian subcontinent.

    MSM's sports channel Sony Kix will be rebranded as Sony ESPN, with new pay-TV channels set for launch in coming months.

    The two companies will also "explore collaboration" on development of sports programmes, they said in a statement.

    MSM's over-the-top (OTT) platform Sony LIV will "significantly" increase its current sports offerings through the collaboration, the two broadcasters said. The digital portal ESPNcricinfo will continue to deliver cricket coverage and will complement and cross-promote the new digital properties and sports channels.

    "For consumers in India and the subcontinent, sports television viewing will change dramatically since they will soon have access not only to more content but also the widest array of sports line-up, ever available," said NP Singh, CEO, Multi Screen Media.

    "MSM's association with ESPN is holistic and embraces both television and digital formats. Not only are we about to set the frontiers in sports content and distribution but we will most likely set the trends as well."

    ESPN International executive vice president and managing director Russell Wolff added: "ESPN's focus around the world is simple: to serve sports fans. This exciting, long-term collaboration between ESPN and MSM will serve Indian sports fans with exceptional products, content and coverage through the combined strengths and expertise of our two companies, which each have a strong heritage of leadership and innovation in India."

    MSM's current sports rights portfolio in India includes football from UEFA Euro 2016, La Liga, the FA Cup and Serie A, as well as NBA, NFL, IRB Rugby World Cup, UFC, TNA Wrestling and NASCAR.

    ESPN will bring 1,000 hours of programming a year to the party from its portfolio of sports rights, original programming and studio programmes. Live sports includes US college football (including the College Football Playoff and the college football bowl season); US college basketball (including the March Madness NCAA Championship Tournaments); NCAA college sport championships from baseball, softball, lacrosse, soccer; boxing (including Premier Boxing Champions and ESPN's Big Fights Library); X Games; and ESPN Films.

    Growing IPTV demand to boost the global residential gateway market

    Editor | 08 October 2015


    Research from Technavio has highlighted the growing importance of IPTV to residential consumer electronics, especially routers.


    The report predicts that the residential gateway market will grow at a CAGR of nearly 8% from 2015-2019, propped up by IPTV which itself is expected to grow at 20% over the same period, making it the fastest growing segment when compared to the satellite and cable TV segments.

    "There are approximately 160 IPTV service providers worldwide, most of which are based in Western Europe and the APAC. Thus, growing adoption of IPTV is expected to foster the demand for residential gateways worldwide," commented report author Faisal Ghaus, VP of Technavio. "Although the concept of smart homes market is prevalent in developed markets, it is likely to flourish in developing countries in the forecast period."

    Monterosa secures £1.2MN series-A funding round

    Editor | 08 October 2015


    Leading multiscreen activation and second-screen technology specialist Monterosa has announced a major fundraising and key additions to its board.


    The £1.2 million fundraising was led by boutique investment firm 24Haymarket and included Angel CoFund and Robin Shenfield, CEO of global advertising visual-effects company, The Mill. Marek Gumienny, a founding director of 24Haymarket, has joined the board, with Shenfield appointed as chairman.

    Monterosa says that it will use the cash injection to accelerate the company's growth into sports marketing and activation for global brands, rights-holders and broadcasters, and to further develop the company's LViS platform. The development follows the recent addition of Adidas and World Rugby to Monterosa's sports roster, in addition to broadcasting deals with BBC Worldwide, TF1 and Talpa.

    Commenting on the move, Monterosa CEO Tom McDonnell said: "These developments are a huge boost to our recent success in addressing a global opportunity; namely helping brands, sports rights-holders and broadcasters drive greater audience engagement and capture data across multiple screens and channels. Having developed a platform that is both scalable and applicable to a diverse range of creative content, we now have the firepower to take the company and platform forward."

    24Haymarket's Marek Gumienny added: "We are very impressed with the early-stage adoption of Monterosa's platform across the media spectrum from major international broadcasters to content producers, rights-holders and brands. We are delighted to invest in partnership with Tom and the rest of the team and to support their vision of continuing to build the pre-eminent multiscreen activation platform combining leadership in technology and creative solutions."

    Half of adults under 32 will not pay for TV by 2025

    Editor | 08 October 2015


    Research from Forrester is predicting serious consequences to the pay-TV market from the march of cord-nevers, especially millennials.


    The Forrester report shows that 2015 marks the year that digital cord-nevers — the generation of viewers who never acquire the pay-TV habit — have eclipsed cord-cutters in size. The data showed that in the US, 7% of adults under 32 years of age are digital cord-nevers, never having paid for TV. This compares with the entire cord-cutting population which comes in at 6% of all adults who are not paying for TV while still getting all the TV value they need from a combination of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and other tools.

    Currently young cord-nevers and their cord-cutter peers of the same age are responsible for as much as 25% of all mobile video viewing minutes.

    In ten years, Forrester predicts that 50% of adults under 32 won't pay for TV, at least not in the way in which it is generally regarded currently. Currently 35% off this age group do not pay for TV in any form.

    "TV is as beloved as ever, even as today's TV distribution model faces a gradually increasing threat," said Forrester principal analyst James McQuivey. "In particular, cord-nevers act like cord-cutters in their online viewing and represent the next stage of evolution in TV viewing. CMOs must experiment on cord-nevers and cord-cutters now to learn how to serve them later. The real challenge isn't how to deal with the end of TV, it's how to deal with the diminishing opportunities to reach this young audience.

    Yahoo partners with Chevy on Ana Gasteyer Web series

    Michelle Clancy | 08 October 2015


    Yahoo is partnering with Chevrolet to kick-off a nine-episode Web video series, Going There with Ana Gasteyer.


    Actress /comedian Ana Gasteyer and celebrity guests will discuss their lives as parents, their kids and the need to complete their never-ending 'to-do' lists, all while running errands together in the new 2016 Chevrolet Traverse.

    The series will also be accessible through the Yahoo Parenting digital magazine.

    Celebrity guests include Maya Rudolph, Jenna Fischer of The Office, and Jessica St Clair of Playing House and the movie Bridesmaids. A new episode will air weekly and feature many autobiographical elements, with Ana, a producer for the series, drawing inspiration from her real-life experiences with her two children, ages 13 and seven.

    Yahoo continues to beef up its over-the-top (OTT) content and make use of hybrid sponsorship deals, such as a recent campaign with Honda and the popular comedy series Community.

    As the show sponsor, Chevrolet will use advertising on Yahoo, as well as syndication of the videos to share the content with an even wider audience. Yahoo will also produce additional pieces of content featuring interviews with celebrity guests, as well as moms and dads of all stripes, for the Going There site.

    The series is from Ellen DeGeneres' A Very Good Production in association with Warner Bros' short-form digital studio Blue Ribbon Content. The series was created by Libby Silverman and Blue Ribbon Content's Zoe Friedman. DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman are executive producers.

    Fuse transcends original series premieres

    Michelle Clancy | 08 October 2015


    Fuse has had its best-ever set of series premieres for the autumn US TV season.


    Fuse, which targets Millennials ages 18-34 and recently re-launched, had the top original series premieres in its history for that group with Transcendent. It also broke its records for households and persons 2+ (Fluffy Breaks Even). And, Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce delivered the highest-ever season premiere on Fuse in the 18-34 demo for its season four premiere.

    The Fuse original programming line-up also performed strongly among its core Latino and multicultural audiences. For example, Fluffy Breaks Even delivered 83% more Hispanic viewers than the network delivered on average in 3Q 2015. Additionally, Transcendent and Big Freedia attracted audiences that were 79% and 75% African American, respectively – significantly higher than the network's previous 3Q 2015 (53%) and 2015 year-to-date (47%) averages.

    "When we made the decision to re-launch Fuse as a network that goes beyond its music roots, we knew that our success would rest largely on the audience reception to original programming that is provocative, honest and relevant to young, Latino and multicultural Millennials. One week in, and we are already seeing our investment in unique talent and creative storytellers pay off," said Fuse Media president Bill Hilary. "This is of course only the first step, and we can't wait to roll out the rest of our new line-up as this new Fuse brand continues to grow."
