CEO Insight: Is Netflix Pointing the Way for the Industry?

Tue, Mar 11, 2014 | by François Moreau de Saint-Martin

 

Barely a day goes by without a new story about Netflix, just see any of our recent Hot Industry News of the Week posts. The Subscription Video on Demand (SVoD) operator is arguably the biggest thing in the business right now, so it was a pleasure to be asked to give my opinion on Netflix’s strategic vision to Videonet, the leading source of strategic insight, analysis and news about post-convergence television.

CEO Insight: The Engagement Model Comes to Life at IBC 2013 | Viaccess-Orca Blog

Mon, Sep 9, 2013 | by François Moreau de Saint-Martin

 

In my previous post, I highlighted the importance of looking at the content experience from the customers’ perspective. This was a point of focus at the TV Leaders Summit (TVLS) in Athens. One of the main attractions at TVLS was the engagement model, and our team is now ready to demonstrate it once again at IBC 2013. We already know that it’s paramount to understand how users enjoy content services in order to analyze how content services providers can increase user engagement, but what are some of the secrets of increased user engagement? It all starts with the quality of the content itself. For viewers, premium content, such as major sport events, great movies and hard-to-miss TV series, is the most valuable and engaging. To monetize premium content, content service   providers need to implement business rules and protect content from threats of piracy.

CEO Insight: How Do We Enjoy Content? Highlights from the TV Leaders Summit | Viaccess-Orca Blog

Mon, Aug 5, 2013 | by François Moreau de Saint-Martin

 

Hosting the TV Leaders Summit in Athens could have been an opportunity to listen to the ancient Greek philosophers. The renowned philosopher Plato aptly observed, "Human behaviors flow from three main sources: desire, emotions and knowledge." When we talk about content services, we are focusing primarily on desires and emotions. To understand where the market is heading, it’s important to look at the content experience from the customer’s perspective. In general, it’s a matter of fun and enjoyment. The big question is: how do we enjoy content?
