What next for video services?

Anthony Zuyderhoff, SVP Home Media Solutions & Pablo Guaglianone, VP Sales, CommScope 
Wednesday 28th October 2020

Consumers have never had so much choice of quality video content and streaming services from new glossy productions and “originals” to studios and broadcasters offering their back-catalogue online and even movies going straight to streaming. As a result, service providers are continuing to feel the effects of cord cutting/shaving as consumers adopt streaming-first for their viewing.

This webinar will look at how service providers are rethinking their video service strategy and the opportunities arising from changing consumer needs, in particular:

– The use of cost-effective streaming devices and engaging user interfaces to enhance broadband services and enable customer engagement.

– The move from content aggregation to service aggregation, with smart assistants and the TV as a canvas for a suite of home services.

Networking in our New Reality

From the New York Times to Harvard Business Review, there have been many reminders of the importance of reaching out to your weak ties during the current crisis. These “weak ties” are not your closest friends, but the people you know at arms’ length. Perhaps you used to know them well or know them only through friends. Connecting with them has always required some effort, but chance social encounters made it easier and more common. Certainly those social opportunities are no longer possible (depending on where you live). The question is, how do you network in the current social context?

Noah gives some basic tips, but also a call to flip networking on its head: changing the perspective of networking from outreach to making yourself more open and available to others.

Masterclass with INSEAD: ‘Optimising and digitising Customer Experience in an agile world’

Since the turn of the twenty-first century, digital has fundamentally changed our lives. Adapting to the ongoing digitisation of the economy, and of society in general, is arguably the most challenging transformation every business is currently facing. But that doesn’t mean that traditional approaches do not apply anymore or that you must reinvent yourself.

For being successful in a digital world it is crucial to understand your key objectives and to identify the means to achieve them.

Organisations need to mirror digital objectives against their core strength and competencies to identify the most important gaps. Then initiatives are identified and their economic value assessed.

In several studies ‘Optimising the digital Customer Experience’ was ranked recently as the top strategic priority by Senior Executives. Successful companies ask themselves what problems they are trying to solve, what stakeholder needs they wish to fulfill, where they stand today, and how digital trends and technologies can address these problems along the customer journey.

In this webinar Joerg discusses how organisations can create exceptional Customer Experience to set themselves apart from their competition.

Premium SVoD and MVPD – Product challenges:

The ties between Premium SVoD services and MVPD platforms are becoming closer, since SVoD services need distribution partners and MVPD platforms need to offer the new consumption model as well. Bernd/Veed Analytics have analysed current approaches from the likes of Netflix, Disney+, Amazon, and also local streaming initiatives. Since the product/device portfolio from MVPD platforms is becoming more fragmented the integration from SVoD services typically differs.

In the webinar Bernd will review the three relevant stages based on examples from the European market:
(1) Service availability: on which devices are the services available and is there any activity from the user required to install an app
(2) Content surfacing: who can users access the content from SVoD services
(3) Commercial bundling: what are typical SVoD bundling approaches.

30th October 2019. MIPCOM 2019 Round-up with Guy Bisson.

Ampere Analysis’ Research Director, Guy Bisson gives a roundup of this year’s MIPCOM via a webinar for CTAM Europe members.

There was a buzz at this year’s MIPCOM content market as TV execs pushed on with ‘business (almost) as usual’ in the face of the fast-changing market for international sales.

Independent distributors found their diaries unusually packed, with a number of smaller operations reporting to The Amp that they were fully booked with meetings until Thursday evening. The changing role of studio majors and direct-to-consumer plans were, of course, a hot topic at the market, but there was a feeling of a quiet before the storm as global sales execs talked freely of an expected impact on their lives and businesses that had yet to fully materialize.

Ongoing access to content stands tall as the key concern among distribution businesses, but the already well-underway trend of original production is also having an impact; driving down license fees for smaller distributors (as major buyers prioritize production budgets over acquisition) and making the lives of the distribution execs within larger operations more challenging as they struggle to unravel their parent companies’ own plans for directto-consumer launches and holdbacks, and the content that will be left over for international sales.

Joint Webinar with INSEAD’s leading faculty member, Joerg Niessing

17th January 2018

Deep dive into the following:

Adapting to the ongoing digitization of the economy, and of society in general, is arguably the most challenging transformation every business is currently facing. Digital technologies have become the core of  almost every industry. But one of the most important ‘laws in business’ has not changed at all: Customer centricity and customer orientation. You can only create value and drive profitable growth if you understand not only what customers ‘need’ but also what customers really ‘want’. However, creating customer value and building long-term relationships is even more challenging in a digital world where customers (a) expect more, (b) are well-informed, (c) trust their peers, (d) have more choices and (e) have a voice.

In today’s ‘Age of the Customer’, digital technologies and customer centricity have to go hand-in-hand: new channels & touchpoints, new devices, diverse data, multi-dimensional customers, new competitors, social networks, new ways of interacting with customers and other stakeholders. Today, every business is, in part, a digital business and successful companies embrace and deploy digitization in the right places at the right time and are up to 30% more profitable than digital beginners. That is why digital transformation should be on every senior executive’s agenda.

Joint Webinar with ARRIS – MVPD-Delivered VR/AR via Broadband and the Future of In-home Health care and Education.

5th December 2017

VR/AR technologies deliver much more than gaming. They can mix entertainment, preventive health care, and long-distance learning in a variety of combinations. Imagine a world where VR/AR is used to:
  • Provide personalized in-home health maintenance such as alleviating symptoms of PTSD or depression, or distracting patients during painful procedures or recuperations
  • Create an immersive remote education experience by placing students in a VR/AR classroom with their professors and peers
  • Allow people who are hindered by health or injuries to shop, visit the beach, or travel the world
  • These applications may be delivered via fiber, wireless/5G, hybrid cloud and content delivery networks (CDN) into the home, via secure gateways and devices. This session will cite recent application examples and discuss the technology and security needed to enable these applications, and how they may also drive architectural changes in network and CDN implementations.
