    Deltenre to leave EBU

    Ingrid Deltenre has resigned as EBU DG and will step down from her role in the summer.

    Commenting on her departure, she said: “It has been a privilege to lead the EBU over the last eight years. With Public Service Media across Europe under increasing pressure from political and economic forces, I believe the role of the EBU and its work in upholding the values of public service media has never been more critical.

    “Thanks to the wonderful team at the EBU, the organisation continues to go from strength to strength – providing invaluable support and advice to Members; playing a key role in so many major sporting events and offering essential business services to customers across the globe.”

    Deltenre will be leaving to focus her attention on her board responsibilities at Banque Cantonale Vaudoise, Givaudan and Deutsche Post/DHL.
    EBU president Jean-Paul Phillipot said: “I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Ingrid for her excellent work and numerous achievements during her tenure.

    “Under her leadership, the EBU has substantially evolved as an organisation, which is now better placed to support Members in confronting the challenges facing PSM within a global digital media environment. Her perseverance, dedication and energy will be missed and we thank her for having made the EBU a much more dynamic organisation.”
    The EBU has launched the search to find a successor and hopes to make an appointment by the summer.

    Canal revenues drop as French market continues slide

    Canal+ is continuing to suffer from subscriber erosion in its French domestic market, losing 492,000 subscribers year-on-year, and seeing revenues drop by 4.7%.

    The operator said new offers introduced in November 2016 had improved the performance towards the end of the year, which closed with 5.25 million subscribers.

    Revenues from international pay-TV operations grew by 5.7% compared to 2015. Growth was particularly strong in Africa, where an increase of 692,000 took subscribers to 2.8 million subscribers.

    Despite the gloom around France, Canal closed the year with a global*subscriber base having climbed to 11.5 million individual subscribers. A further 2.9 wholesale subscriptions came through partnerships with Free and Orange. Revenues of €5,253 million were down 4.7% on 2015.

    DMC charge hits AMC Networks

    AMC Networks’ international operations took a $68 million impairment charge on its Amsterdam media centre DMC that took it to a fourth quarter loss of $88 million.
    DMC aside international revenues were ostensibly flat at $119 million.

    Across the full year the co-producer of hits including Humans and Planet Earth grew international and other revenues by 1.6%, or $7 million.

    President and Chief Executive Officer Josh Sapan said: “2016 was a successful year for our company both financially and operationally, driven by our disciplined and focused strategy of investing in high-quality content and creating brands that have strong, growing, passionate and engaged audiences. ‘The Walking Dead’ remains the #1 show on television by a wide margin and is a powerful example of programming that we own and distribute that commands a loyal audience, attracts advertising revenue, and has significant ancillary revenues that will benefit our business for years to come.”

    Total revenues grew by 6.8% to $2.756 billion.

    Liberty Global to live-stream solar eclipse

    This Sunday, February 26, Liberty Global will live-stream a rare type of solar eclipse to people around the world via its Facebook page and YouTube channel.
    The Southern Ring of Fire solar eclipse will be streamed directly from the remote town of Coyhaique, in southern Chile – one of the best places in the world to view the phenomenon – thanks to a specially-installed fibre connection.

    The live stream will start at 9.30am Chile Summer Time/12.30pm GMT/13/30 CET and build up to the full eclipse just over an hour later, when the moon will cover the sun’s disk and form a glowing “ring of fire” in the sky.
    The feed will be available in 360° on Liberty Global’s YouTube channel – the first time such an eclipse has been shown in this format. Viewers wearing a virtual reality headset such as a Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear, or Oculus Rift will actually feel as if they are there in the square and will be able to fully immerse themselves in the excitement as people gather to watch, as well as being able to see the eclipse itself.

    Viewers without headsets will be able to enjoy the 360° experience on their smartphones or tablets by moving the device around as they are watching, while Liberty Global’s Facebook page will also feature a 2D stream directly from a telescope installed in the square.

    “This event demonstrates how high-speed, stable broadband networks are bringing the wonders of the world to an ever-greater audience,” said Manuel Kohnstamm, Liberty Global’s Chief Corporate Affairs Officer.
    “I can’t think of a more stunning setting from which to showcase such an amazing event – which will be able to seen in 360-degrees for the first time by people all over the world.”

    The project is in partnership with Liberty Global’s Chilean brand VTR – the largest broadband and cable TV provider in the country – and highlights how the company’s investment in broadband infrastructure makes extraordinary content easily accessible across the globe.

    Meredith Corp taps Telestream for Facebook Live strategy

    US broadcast conglomerate Meredith Corp has mandated that its local TV stations stream breaking news and news-related content directly to Facebook Live.

    Meredith owns and operates 15 US DTV stations in 13 markets, including Atlanta, Phoenix, St. Louis and Portland, reaching 12 million people, or 11% of US households. It has issued a corporate directivea corporate directive to its digital content teams at its stations to use Facebook Live to reach new viewers that tune into social media more often than TV, connect with loyal viewers outside normal news cycles and serve as a news source for the Facebook community.

    “Since live video news is a key service that we provide, Facebook Live presents a unique opportunity for us to raise the visibility of our media brand on Facebook, and to share the timely, trusted news programming that airs on our main channels,” said Larry Oaks, vice president of technology at Meredith.

    To support the strategy, Meredith has chosen the Telestream Wirecast Gear appliance — a streaming production solution from Telestream — in all of its markets nationwide, to stream content via Facebook Live, and eventually to other social media platforms, on a regular basis.

    “Our primary interest is to use Wirecast Gear for breaking news outside our typical news cycle but also for simulcasts of our studio broadcast, or promotional and pre-recorded content,” said Oaks. “With the ability to interface with our routers, we can drive any content from our facility or a remote shoot to Facebook Live, complete with branding.”

    Wirecast Gear integrates a user interface; image branding, graphics and keying for the placement of logo bugs; multi-camera switching, audio mixing, roll-ins, green screen keying and other production tools; and connections to go live on leading social media sites.

    For the last seven years, Meredith has been using Telestream's Vantage platform*running on Lightspeed servers to automate its media processing operations.

    “When we were evaluating our choices, Wirecast Gear met all of our criteria,” Oaks said. “This includes integrating the key live production capabilities we need into a single, compact, affordable system that’s easy to learn and operate. More importantly, Wirecast makes it simple to get a secure connection and start streaming media to social destinations. We just select Facebook Live from a pull-down menu and it facilitates whatever handshake, log-in or settings we need to start streaming quickly and reliably.”

    NAB 2017: Triveni Digital to debut ATSC 3.0 broadcast starter kits

    Triveni Digital has announced a series of ATSC 3.0 starter kits designed to bring broadcasters up to speed with the new broadcast television standard in a real-world environment.

    The starter kits will be rolled out at NAB 2017, and will encompass everything from file-based monitoring to live encoding and over-the-air transmission options, leveraging Triveni Digital's GuideBuilder XM signalling and announcement generator, ROUTE/MMTP encoder and StreamScope XM MT service quality assurance system, along with third-party technology from trusted ecosystem partners.

    "The ATSC 3.0 standard is on the verge of completion, which will provide broadcasters with a wide range of benefits based on the ability to comprehensively distribute a hybrid mix of broadcast and broadband IP content to fixed and mobile receivers for the very first time," said Ralph Bachofen, vice president of sales and marketing at Triveni Digital.*

    “It will also require a steep learning curve for broadcasters. Joining forces with other technology leaders, we're excited to offer broadcasters complete ATSC 3.0 solutions for various needs, from file-based monitoring to over-the-air reception. Becoming familiar with the new standard now, in their own facilities, broadcasters can ensure the transition is fast and smooth."

    The starter kits will be available in several options to meet broadcasters' unique infrastructure requirements and knowledge of the ATSC 3.0 standard. The entry-level package includes Triveni Digital's StreamScope XM MT, without any physical inputs, for file-based analysis. Using this solution, broadcasters can gain greater insight into the physical structure of ATSC 3.0.

    Option two expands upon the entry-level package by including Triveni Digital's GuideBuilder XM, ROUTE/MMTP encoder and a live source simulator. More advanced starter kits will feature additional elements of the ATSC 3.0 workflow such as encoding, packaging, modulation, gateways and exciters from third-party technology partners.

    The implementation of the next-generation ATSC 3.0 broadcast standard is expected to bring significant advantages to medium- and large-market television stations in the US, including more ad revenue, television viewership and management of digital competition.

    A recent BIA/Kelsey report examining the conversion to the ATSC 3.0 standard from a business perspective concluded that larger stations that were considering implementing the ATSC 3.0 standard would be recouped within three years.

    “ATSC 3.0 will change the business of broadcasting into a next generation wireless communications business,” said Mark Fratrik, chief economist and SVP, BIA/Kelsey.

    “This new technology will give broadcasters the ability to pursue multiple new business models, which will significantly diversify their current revenue mix.”

    Frontier Communications Joins Milestone Ultra HD Trials with SES

    SES S.A. (Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange: SESG) today announced Frontier Communications Corporation has begun testing 4K Ultra HD content delivery using SES’s fully-managed Ultra HD distribution platform.

    Frontier is the latest multichannel video programming distributor (MVPD) to join SES’s milestone trials aimed at accelerating Ultra HD delivery to homes across North America. SES has a growing number of cable and television system operators currently evaluating the satellite-based Ultra HD solution in an effort to provide the Ultra HD programming to their subscribers this year.

    SES’s managed Ultra HD platform is delivered over dedicated satellite bandwidth, which provides a much higher quality viewer experience compared to current Internet-delivered 4K offerings susceptible to bottlenecks, buffering and network congestion. Currently home to nine linear Ultra HD channels, the platform provides the largest bundle of Ultra HD programming in North America. “We are optimistic that SES’s innovative, pre-packaged Ultra HD solution will allow for a smooth transition of Ultra HD delivery to Frontier subscriber homes nationwide,” said Steve Ward, SVP of Video Technology & Content for Frontier Communications.

    “MVPDs across the country have been extremely impressed with our Ultra HD channel lineup and how satellite is enabling them to leap frog to the latest transmission technologies in order to accelerate the delivery of Ultra HD to their subscriber homes,” explained Steve Corda, Vice President of Business Development for SES in North America.
