The 2016 Big Broadcast Survey (BBS) Reports are now available.

We have been publishing the BBS Reports since 2009.  Each new edition is created through several months of research, including interviews with technology end-users, global surveys of technology decision makers, analysis of the end-user responses, and visualization of the data collected.  Now in its eighth year of publication, the BBS remains the most comprehensive annual study of technology end-users in the global broadcast and media technology industry.  Nearly 10,000 technology professionals in 100+ countries participate in the BBS each year, making it the largest market study of the media technology industry.

Based on feedback from technology vendors, media companies, and investors, we have updated the vendors, product categories, and market trends profiled in the 2016 BBS to better align with recent market developments.

Select updates include the global tracking of IP Standard Adoption, a product level review of the 4K upgrade cycle, and planned usage of programmatic advertising exchanges.

The continual updates over the past eight years have helped the BBS reports remain a critical reference for industry executives to improve strategic decision-making, customer engagement, marketing strategy, product planning, and sales execution.  In addition to technology vendor and service provider strategic planning, BBS reports are also used frequently for M&A and investment activities by both buyers and sellers.

Three types of 2016 BBS reports are available:

  • 2016 BBS Global Brand Reports: provides deep insight into how each more than 100 broadcast technology suppliers (see full list below) are perceived by market participants, along with comprehensive benchmarking of broadcast technology vendors on a wide variety of metrics
  • 2016 BBS Product Reports: provide detailed information from buyers, specifiers, and users of broadcast technology products in 32 separate categories (see full list below)
  • 2016 BBS Global Market Report: provides detailed information about industry trends, major projects being planned, products being evaluated for purchase, current and future plant infrastructure, broadcast technology budgets, and planned deployment of new technologies including 4K, HEVC compression, and IP-based technology infrastructure

ATEME Posts 24 Percent Revenue Gain in 2014, Provides Upbeat Outlook for 2015

Annual Results, Broadcast technology vendor financials, Quarterly Results | Posted by Joe Zaller
Feb 16 2015

Video compression specialist ATEME announced that its revenue for 2014 was €25.4m, an increase of 24% versus the same period a year ago.

The company, which raised €13.3m through Initial Public Offering last year, said 2014 was its third consecutive year of revenue growth.

The company’s full performance appears to indicate that its growth accelerated during the second half of 2014, following on from revenue of €12m during the first six months of the year.

ATEME attributed its continued growth to both new business from existing customers such as the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the acquisition of new customers including the BBC, leading Hollywood studios, tier-1 service providers and post-production studios; and the use of its technology at major events including the FIFA World Cup.

“We have a well-established, worldwide footprint and 2014 allowed us to solidify our base for growth,” said ATEME CEO Michel Artieres. “We are now the trusted technology partner in video compression for 200 customers from around the world. We will continue with investment strategies to provide full, flexible software solutions and to become a more agile solutions provider.”

The company said it believes it is “positioned to profit from soaring worldwide video consumption,” pointing to “the launch of new ultra high-definition/4K channels in Japan, Russia and the United Kingdom in 2015” as evidence of its future potential growth prospects.

Envivio Issues Second Profit Warning in Past Three Quarters

Broadcast technology vendor financials, Quarterly Results | Posted by Joe Zaller
Nov 13 2012

Video encoding and transcoding specialist Envivio reported that it now expects its revenue for the quarter ending October 31, 2012 to be in the range of $7m to $7.5m.

This is approximately 30% below the guidance provided by the company last quarter.

At that time, Envivio said that it expected its revenue for the quarter ending October 31, 2012 to be in the range of $10m to $11m, with a non-GAAP loss per share in the range of ($0.16) to ($0.12), non-GAAP operating loss in the range of $4.1m to $3.2m, and non-GAAP gross margins in the range of 59 to 62 percent.

Envivio raised  approximately $70 when it went public on the NASDAQ exchange in April 2012.

This is the second time in its three quarters as a public company that Envivio has issued a profit warning.

Prior to the company’s Q2 2012 results Envivio warned that its revenue would be 35% to 41% lower than the bottom end of Envivio’s previously issued guidance.

“The global slowdown in spending by our service provider customers has persisted, with sales cycles continuing to lengthen,” said Julien Signes, president and CEO, Envivio. “While we remain confident in maintaining our technology leadership and competitive positioning, as well as the long term growth of the multi-screen video processing market, we acknowledge that near-term visibility of demand remains limited. As a result, we are continuing to execute on the measures we discussed last quarter to manage our expenses and are reviewing our sales execution and other aspects of our strategy.”

 

Including today’s announcement from Envivio, a number of broadcast vendors have reported sluggish sales or have issued profit warnings this year:
