5th IPTV / OTT Industry Breakfast, Cologne


Thank you to all the guests for joining our 5th TV Connect IPTV/OTT Industry Breakfast. We had a great turnout with over 130 attendees covering a wide range of industry experts including broadcasters, service providers, industry analysts and media professionals. We discussed how operators can compete with multi-national tier-one players by providing secure multi-screen TV solutions and future-proof their services with advanced technology and new business models.

As one of the main points, we concluded that there will be an inevitable migration path from DVB to IP and that the TV is still the main screen in the household. Therefore, it is important that operators stay in control by offering a compelling multi-application TV Solution, covering Live TV, on demand services, catch up TV and major OTT Services in a controlled environment. Another main topic discussed was the increasing importance of capturing and interpreting analytical data and user behavior to improve the service offering and upsell/cross-sell further TV packages. Finally, it’s not about linear TV anymore, but rather about a complex multi-application & multi-screen TV solution. Together with UHD and additional requirements a seamless security across multiple devices becomes more important than ever.

As we are all looking forward to generating additional revenue streams and reducing customer churn, it was felt that Operator Smart Home Solutions would become the logical next step in extending operator service offerings.

Thank you, once again, for coming and we are already looking forward to seeing you again next year. Please find further interviews from our speakers below.
