Gick in i NetInsight aktien 2015-11-24 till en kurs på 3,03 kr per aktie

 

Jag har följt NetInsight aktien länge och var nära att börja jobba där som utvecklare för några år sedan.

 

Det som triggade mig att äntligen gå in tungt i NetInsight är deras intåg på OTT-marknaden. Net Insight har gått in på den så kallade OTT-marknaden för att lösa utmaningar inom live OTT-streaming. Kända OTT-tjänster på den svenska marknaden är Netflix och MTG:s Viaplay. Tillväxten kan bli flera 1000% närmaste åren.

 

Detta är något som kan få igång aktien ordentligt uppåt, inte omöjligt att vi kan göra en resa liknande Fingerprint Cards. Börsvärdet ligger bara på runt

1 Miljard kronor och kan på några år lätt 10 dubblas.

OTT video revenue explosion forecasted:

 

http://telecoms.com/425781/ott-video-revenue-explosion-forecasted/

 

Data unveiled by analysis firm Digital TV Research have projected a doubling in global OTT video streaming revenues from $26bn in 2015 to $51.1bn in 2020; highlighting the growing market share of OTT players in broadcasting.

 

The report forecasts subscription-based video on demand services will grow to become the primary source of revenue generation, ahead of advertising, with projected global revenues rising from $9.9bn to $21.7bn by 2020. Advertising, meanwhile, will grow to reach $21bn from $11.4bn today.

 

Contributing to the global growth in VOD subscriptions, the US market will grow to 70 million by 2020, representing 28.1% of the global market. In 2010, the US generated subscription revenues of $753 million; Digital TV Research reckons that number will grow by 765% by 2020, to $6.52bn.

 

Simon Murray, who’s a principal analyst at Digital TV Research, points towards Netflix’s global growth as the primary reason behind the surge of OTT TV streaming.

 

“SVOD has developed even faster than we expected in our last edition a year ago,” he said. “Some of this growth was spurred by Netflix’s aim to establish operations in 200 countries by end-2016. Not only has the launch of Netflix boosted each market, but the anticipation of its launch has galvanised local players into action – creating a whirlwind of promotional activity.”

 

Beyond the growth seen globally, China will see the most impressive growth over the next five years. It is predicted the country’s VOD revenues will jump from $40m in 2010 to $2.82bn by 2020, and will become the fourth highest grossing country in the world for the OTT TV streaming market.

 

 

According to Reuters, Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba is set to launch a brand new online video streaming service this summer; with August a likely launch date. Patrick Liu, Alibaba’s head of digital entertainment, confirmed the service will be called Tmall Box Office (TMO), and looked towards Netflix and HBO in the US as benchmarks.

 

“Our mission, the mission of all of Alibaba, is to redefine home entertainment,” he said. “Our goal is to become like HBO in the United States, to become like Netflix in the United States.”

 

In a busy day for digital content streaming, Google has announced that video streaming website YouTube will be launching a dedicated platform for gamers in the summer. The appropriately titled “YouTube Gaming” app and website will provide a platform for gamers to host live streams of videogame sessions, game play guides, speedruns. Writing on the YouTube blog, product manager Alan Joyce highlighted how streaming is becoming so important to today’s digital consumers.

 

“Live streams bring the gaming community closer together, so we’ve put them front-and-center on the YouTube Gaming homepage,” he said. “And in the coming weeks, we’ll launch an improved live experience that makes it simpler to broadcast your gameplay to YouTube.”

 

Looking beyond the features unveiled by both Google/YouTube and Alibaba, the growth of video content demand is apparent. Cisco’s VNI forecasted IP video traffic to consume roughly 80-90% of global consumer internet traffic by 2018; and as video files streamed in HD move towards 4K, the pressure faced by operator networks will only intensify further.

 

Announcements such as these serve to illustrate how service providers, be it mobile or fixed, are becoming increasingly obliged to provide high-availability, high bandwidth-consuming content in an age where even a momentary lapse in service is a nigh-on disaster. How operators utilise emerging networking tech to manage the growth in IP video traffic will be imperative in the move towards 2020.

Net Insight presenterar världens första lösning för äkta Live OTT

 

Bolagets lösning Sye löser problemen med synkronisering av live OTT-innehåll och fördröjning, och presenteras för första gången på NAB 2016

 

Stockholm - Net Insight, ledande operatör av live, interaktiv och on-demand medietransport, lanserar idag officiellt Sye, världens enda äkta live OTT-

lösning. Sye gör det möjligt att leverera innehåll i realtid med bildsynkronisering på alla typer av skärmar, inklusive linjära TV-sändningar,

utan fördröjning.

 

"Sye är helt revolutionerande för upplevelsen av live OTT-innehåll, och kommer att förändra och påverka branschdynamiken på ett betydelsefullt sätt," säger Per Lindgren, senior vice president Live OTT på Net Insight. "Sye harmoniserar live TV till alla skärmar, vilket gör att tv-tittarna för första gången kan uppleva sann interaktivitet och delaktighet i realtid. Detta skapar nya upplevelser som konsumenter vill vara delaktiga i och är villiga att betala för. Sye gör det också möjligt för tjänsteleverantörer att komma in i OTT-värdekedjan med nya unika möjligheter att generera intäkter."

 

Dagens OTT-plattformar har en fördröjning i leveransen av TV-innehållet som sträcker sig från ett par sekunder till flera minuter. Det medverkar till att

TV-tittarna loggar ut från sociala medier, appar och andra plattformar för att inte få sin TV-upplevelse förstörd. OTT levererar inte den utlovade sociala

interaktionen och potentialen för ett ökat tittarengagemang och delaktighet går förlorad.

 

Genom att harmonisera TV-innehållet till alla skärmar så erbjuder Sye en engagerande TV-upplevelse unik för branschen. Detta möjliggör live vadslagning, röstning och enkäter, samt förbättrar underhållningsvärdet och interaktiviteten i sociala medier. Dessutom blir det möjligt för bolag inom hela ekosystemet för mediedistribution att "äga" upplevelsen på den 2:a skärmen genom att skapa engagerande innehåll som är speciellt utformat för den 2:a skärmen. Ett exempel är så kallade "driver cams" i motorsporten, där tävlingen synkroniseras på alla skärmar samtidigt. Detta gör att tittarna får en komplett TV -upplevelse av live OTT-innehåll utan att missa en sekund av det som händer på den 1:a skärmen.

 

Net Insights kund TATA Communications har redan testat Sye med gott resultat. Koncepttestet inkluderade en transkontinental OTT-länk, från ett

motorsportevenemang i Singapore, där innehållet levererades till Storbritannien utan fördröjning mellan den linjära live TV-sändningen av loppet och live-

strömmat innehåll i en app.

 

"Konsumtionen av OTT-innehåll växer i en otrolig takt, vilket gör att den 2:a skärmen blir en förlängning av upplevelsen på den 1:a skärmen för live TV. Detta

har en enorm potential att aktivera och engagera tittare på nya och spännande sätt," säger Fredrik Tumegård, vd på Net Insight. "Vår kompetens och innovation inom livetjänster i kombination med vår erfarenhet genom hela mediebranschen, gör att vi kan utveckla lösningar, som exempelvis Sye, vilka förändrar spelreglerna och bidrar till att utforma framtidens medie- och TV-upplevelser."

 

 

Dagens nyhet (2015-11-25) är verkligen toppen för oss NetInsight aktieägare:

 

 

Net Insight tillkännager att Tata Communications är första kunden för en äkta live OTT-lösning,

tecknar ramavtal för att leverera äkta live OTT-tjänst globalt.

 

Net Insight meddelar idag att den globala nätoperatören Tata Communications blir den första kunden som implementerar Net Insights lösning

för äkta live over-the-top (OTT) globalt. De två företagen har tecknat ett ramavtal som gör det möjligt för Tata Communications att integrera Net

Insights lösning i sitt Media Ecosystem, vilket inkluderar tjänsten "Video Connect". Det innebär att Tata Communications kommer att kunna erbjuda live

OTT-tjänster till alla sina medie- och underhållningskunder via bolagets globala nät i framtiden.För närvarande är traditionell leverans av innehåll för OTT inte utvecklad för live OTT, då de istället är optimerade för video on demand (VoD) och catch-up

TV. De lösningarna är således inte optimala för äkta live OTT, eftersom det leder till en oförutsägbar fördröjning och stora synkroniseringsproblem. För

TV-tittarna innebär det att man inte kan uppleva samma program på olika skärmar samtidigt, utan tidsförskjutningar.

Net Insights nya teknik gör det möjligt att lösa detta genom att harmonisera den 1:a och 2:a skärmen. Det gör att flera skärmar kan synkroniseras i

realtid, vilket leder till att Net Insight även skapar nya affärsmöjligheter för företag och annonsörer, exempelvis under stora internationella

idrottstävlingar som sänds live. Förutom synkronisering, integreras den 1:a och 2:a skärmen så att den 2:a skärmen fungerar som en förlängning av

upplevelsen och som ett verktyg för interaktivitet. Kombinationen av synkronisering och harmonisering av 2:a skärmen innebär stora

affärsmöjligheter för reklam, äkta live interaktiv vadhållning och spel, omröstningar och undersökningar. Inget av detta har varit möjligt på samma sätt tidigare.

"OTT-marknaden växer extremt snabbt och är driven av publikens önskan att kunna se alla sina favoritprogram, när som helst, var som helst och på vilken

enhet som helst, utan fördröjning. Men hittills har tidsfördröjningen för OTT-innehåll förhindrat en utbredd användning under live events," säger Brian

Morris, Vice President&General Manager, Global Media and Entertainment services på Tata Communications. "Genom att bygga in Net Insights innovativa

teknologi i vårt globala Media Ecosystem gör vi det möjligt för mediebolag att hantera, leverera och sända synkroniserat live OTT-innehåll var som helst

i världen och även att utnyttja direktsända sport- och musikevenemang för ytterligare intäkter, eftersom förändrade konsumtionsvanor fortsätter att

utveckla branschen.""Vi har haft ett nära samarbete med Tata Communications under många år och som

ett resultat att vilja driva innovation på marknaden och agera snabbt, kan Tata Communications globala kunder få uppleva live OTT-tjänster på riktigt",

säger Fredrik Tumegård, VD på Net Insight. "Net Insights förmåga att stödja tjänster för äkta live OTT och harmonisering av TV-sändningar oberoende av

antal användare och enheter är omvälvande och kommer att innebära att nätoperatörer är tillbaka i värdekedjan för OTT."

 

 

 

NET INSIGHT MAKES LIVE 4K POSSIBLE FOR GERMANY'S MEDIA BROADCAST

 

Net Insight's vision to enable broadcasters and service providers to deliver more live and interactive media experiences is highlighted through a solution for MEDIA BROADCAST, one of Germany's leading full-service providers in the broadcasting and media space.

 

Taking advantage of Net Insight's expertise in live, 4K remote production, MEDIA BROADCAST GmbH realized its first 4K transmission between its two main production sites. The solution implemented is scaleable and set up to enable MEDIA BROADCAST to offer more and more premium services, as required, to help them remain competitive, both now and in the future.

 

Choosing the right technology is vital for the success of live event video transmissions, says Daniel Wolbers, group manager of Transport & Infrastructure at MEDIA BROADCAST. Due to our experience with 4K video contribution link for pearl.tv we were confident that Net Insight could meet our even higher demands for event broadcasts. The success of this project has proven this.

 

The 4K remote production solution typifies Net Insight's customer-centric business focus and the company's vision to enable its customers and theirs to activate television audiences by providing the quality of experience (QoE), live and local content, and interactive TV viewing that consumers want to be a part of.

Tata Communications and Formula One Management test inaugural delivery of a live track-side feed on an OTT platform

 

 

Tata Communications, the official connectivity provider to Formula 1, has completed another successful proof of concept with Formula One Management during a recent Grand Prix . The new technology test delivered a live trackside feed from the Singapore track to Formula One Management’s technical HQ in Biggin Hill, UK – with no time lag between the live broadcast and the footage viewed on the app.

 

Also known as an over-the-top (OTT) service, this test demonstrated how the Formula 1 fan experience could be enriched through new technology.

John Morrison, Formula One Management’s chief technical officer, says: “It is very interesting to prove that, with the latest equipment and techniques, it is possible to achieve an online delivery of additional content with no delay relative to the main live programme on the screen.”

 

The live OTT video feed was delivered using Tata Communications’ global fibre network and the company’s Media Ecosystem. This converted the feed into different bit-rates – while providing a consistently high quality, real-time viewing experience – regardless of internet bandwidth or device. Unlike traditional OTT services (which often result in a lag of around 25 seconds between a live event and an online feed) Tata Communications demonstrated its capability to deliver an online feed with no delay.

 

Mehul Kapadia, managing director of F1 Business at Tata Communications, says: “Technology continues to evolve at great speed and that is why we, together with Formula One Management, continuously work together to test new capabilities. Delivering a successful low latency feed to an app is another landmark step in our shared innovation journey.”

 

This latest proof of concept follows a 2014 season test where Tata Communications became the first company to deliver a live 4K feed from a Formula 1 event. Here, live footage was delivered end-to-end over Tata Communications’ network to Formula One Management’s Technical HQ in Biggin Hill, UK. Demonstrated to an exclusive group of broadcasters, the live delivery highlighted the next generation 4K broadcast capabilities afforded by fibre-optic cable, and illustrated how the future of 4K sports broadcasting could look.

 

Today, over 24% of the world’s internet routes travel over the Tata Communications network which provides backbone connectivity to over 240 countries and territories, including all Grand Prix locations. Tata Communications is the Official Connectivity Provider to Formula 1, enabling the sport to seamlessly reach its tens of millions of fans across the globe. Tata Communications also works with 20+ broadcasters to deliver F1 to fans across the globe.

NET INSIGHT’S LIVE OTT PLATFORM

 

Net Insight provides a virtualized software solution, back-end and streaming platform for massively scalable media distribution.

The solution can be deployed over private, public or mixed cloud. The terminating part of the solution is the client SDK (software development kit). This has pre-support for the most popular connected handheld IOS and Android

devices. The client SDK enables application developers to add next generation TV to their apps, cross platform, with a uniform API. The SDK contains the media distribution termination part, but also media decoding and rendering, i.e. a player. It

provides a quick and hassle-free way into an extended TV experience.

 

Robust transport

 

Net Insight’s solution adapts to any kind of underlying network quality. It distributes streaming media from source to clients

with required robustness. The solution handles packet drops and re-ordering even in harsh network environments, depending

on the application requirements. As the solution supports different types of quality (SD, HD, 4K etc.), it means that the content

provider can decide what quality they want the TV viewer to be able experience. What offering they want to provide.

 

Fixed delay

 

The solution provides a signal which has a predictable, fixed delay and synchronous playback across devices independent

of device manufacturer. Typical devices include smartphones and tablets. But with open APIs for hardware access, content

providers can also harmonize with the big screen TV for an extended experience with a retail media device.

Prolonged quality experience The side effect of a robust distribution mechanism is an overall picture quality increase due to an inertia effect, prolonging time at the highest quality level. When the robustness resources are exhausted, a quality change is forced in order to keep the experience of continuity, synchronization between screens and the fixed low latency, using a refined adaptive bit rate (ABR) technology.

 

A better interface

 

Since end-user TV experience is what is driving Net Insight to do this in the first place, user interface has been given

special attention. Today, channel change using standard technology for online streaming takes between 3-6 seconds. We

have created an instant channel change procedure, without overbooking the link. This feature enables developers to create

a new user interface experience that lets viewers change channels instantly by swiping on an iPad or other mobile device.

It means a better viewing experience and the increased customer uptake and loyalty that will come with it.

 

 

Synchronized live OTT will revitalize existing revenue models and create completely new ones. Combining synchronized

social interactivity and real-time multi-screen interactivity, delivers quality worth paying for and a platform for engagement.

And that’s just the start.

 

Broadcasters & Content Owners

 

Quality worth paying for Convincing subscribers to pay in a world of

free content takes something special. Synchronized live OTT enables broadcasters and content owners to differentiate their

offering with higher quality OTT for higher quality of experience (QoE). It also enables them to connect the second screen to the first. Social platforms and tech companies are clambering to offer services that leverage first screen content – whether it is their content or not. But they can only offer a parallel experience with on-demand content or a very limited offering with live

content. By solving sync, it will become possible for broadcasters and content providers to deliver interactive entertainment

experiences so compelling, they will ‘own’ the second screen – and all that goes with it.

 

Pure OTT providers Live and uninterrupted Up until now, pure OTT providers with an on-demand focus have had little interest

in live. But that is beginning to change. “Live” premieres of time-shifted content such as hit series and films are increasing

in importance as the social interactivity that goes with them grows. People want to communicate via social platforms when

their favorite series is on. Just look at Walking Dead for an example. Then imagine the possibilities if it had have been synchronized over both OTT and broadcast TV.

 

Personalized advertising

 

A platform for engagement For advertisers, the opportunities are immense. A compelling OTT experience

that interacts with the first screen, means viewers are both engaged and willing. This means rich first party data. Whereas

programmatic advertising is demographic-driven, synchronized live OTT will make personalized advertising possible. Advertisers will know who is watching and whatthey are interested in. This will let them deliver more relevant advertising and less of it. It will mean a better experience for viewers, better results for advertisers, and greater monetization for content.

 

Online betting

 

Interactivity you can bet on Betting on a result we already know is a surefire way to win. Which is why betting

companies don’t allow it. This limits what they can offer. However, the fixed low delay of synchronized live OTT means they can offer betting that’s much closer to the action – part of the action even. Real time betting and interactivity between second screen and first will mean a far richer, more deeply integrated experience for those who enjoy raising the stakes of their

entertainment.

 

Network operators

 

Turn a commodity into a valuable resource On-demand video can be cached and delivered cheaply by networks that prioritize cost over performance. This has continued to weaken network operators’ negotiating position and turned once-valuable bandwidth into a commodity. Synchronized live OTT changes this. It means performance-critical traffic and a much stronger position in the value chain for those who can deliver it.

 

 

Traditional OTT platforms

 

Traditional OTT platforms sacrifice synchronization for reliability. When people watch live events, the action they

see varies from screen to screen. And nothing spoils the moment like finding out about a score 30 seconds before

you get to see it. As a result, people watching live events OTT are forced to log out of social platforms or risk hearing

what’s happening on someone else’s screen before it happens on theirs. Lack of sync breaks down social interactivity

and the potential for broader engagement is lost.

 

Mainstream content addresses a larger audience and the cost of on-site production teams and leased lines connecting them can be covered in the budget for the production, but for long-tail content the several thousands of dollars per month for leased line connectivity may be cost prohibitive. In addition, many of these niche areas of interest might not even be serviceable with leased lines.

 

With the new OTT distribution models that the Internet offers and with a new breed of niche players taking command of them, the traditional model with on-site production teams using expensive dedicated links is changing. In order to monetize long-tail content, the entire workflow has to be cost-efficient, from production to contribution and distribution. Distributing content over the Internet is already a reality, so why not use the same inexpensive infrastructure also for contribution and acquisition.

 

HIGH-QUALITY LIVE VIDEO OVER THE INTERNET

 

Live transport of broadcast quality video over the Internet has long been considered impossible. And while it is true that the Internet was never designed to handle the requirements from broadcast services, new solutions have emerged that bridges the gap between the best-effort nature of the Internet and the high reliability and quality requirements broadcasters require. By leveraging new technology, the imperfections normally associated with Internet grade transport are now a thing of the past. Today broadcasters have the ability to enjoy the same benefits offered by the Internet, such as vast reach and cost-effective price models, as the consumer market have done for years.

 

NIMBRA VA, THE BROADCASTER’S CHOICE

 

Acting either as an on-ramp to an existing MSR network for extended reach and rapid deployments, or to provide an end-to-end service over the Internet. The Nimbra Video Appliances offers broadcasters the possibility to use Internet grade transport and still maintain the same strict broadcast quality standards as they have become accustomed to. Built on a foundation of reliable low-delay video protection coupled with our award-winning management tools, video contribution over the Internet have never been easier.

 

While the Nimbra series of Video Appliances may be built for underlying best-effort networks, the characteristics of the service delivered are far from it. Building on premises of video as a key driver for everything we do, we know that our customer expect the same carrier class operational simplicity, traceability and performance follow-up regardless of the underlying transport media. Therefore, the Nimbra VA family has been built on the same rugged software baseline as that of our proven Nimbra MSR family. This brings a unique set of advantages you won’t find anywhere else, such as rock solid operations, and perhaps more important – the tools available to quickly understand what has gone wrong when you need to.

 

Available in a range of options, the Nimbra VA family supports everything from IP and ASI based encoders/decoders, to baseband input. The later is supported using our latest family member, the Nimbra VA 220 that beyond the best-in-class transport capabilities offered by the VA 210 and VA 210 ASI. now also incorporates a 4-channel MPEG-4 Encoder/decoder.
