This is the fifth in a series of articles about some of the findings from the 2012 Big Broadcast Survey (BBS), a global study of broadcast industry trends, technology purchasing plans, and benchmarking of broadcast technology vendor brands. Nearly 10,000 broadcast professionals in 100+ countries took part in the 2012 BBS, making it the largest and most comprehensive market study ever conducted in the broadcast industry.

 

In previous posts, I have discussed the most important broadcast industry trends of 2012, where money is being spent in the broadcast industry in 2012, and the overall opinion rankings of broadcast technology vendors in 2012.

Each year, as part of the Big Broadcast Survey (BBS), we ask a global sample of broadcast professionals to rank a variety of technology vendor brands on a wide range of metrics. We use these responses to create a series of reports, which through benchmarking and industry “league tables,” provides a view as to how each vendor is positioned in the market relative to the industry as a whole, as well as against their direct competitors.

This is the second in a series of posts about how broadcast technology vendors were ranked and benchmarked on a variety of metrics by the respondents to the 2012 BBS.

The first post in this series described the 2012 BBS Overall Brand Opinion League Table, which shows how 2012 BBS respondents ranked broadcast vendor brands.

While it’s positive for any vendor to achieve a good “overall opinion” ranking, this metric is somewhat one-sided because it relies solely on the positive opinions of respondents. In order to get a better understanding of how broadcast technology vendor brands are perceived, it is necessary to look at both the positive and negative opinions of brands, and to take into account how these opinions have changed over time.

This post looks at how the global sample of broadcast professionals who participated in the 2012 BBS ranked their net change of overall opinion of the 152 broadcast technology vendors we covered in the study. You can find a chart with the complete list of vendor brands covered in the 2012 BBS here.

 

How These Results Were Calculated

We first asked 2012 BBS respondents to rank their overall opinion of relevant brands (see brand opinion rankings here) on a scale of 1 -10 with 10 being the best in the market and 1 being the worst in the market.  We then asked respondents whether their opinion of these brands has changed over the last few years – specifically whether they feel their opinion of each brand has “improved,” “declined” or “stayed the same.”

This “change of opinion data” provides a more comprehensive view of how each brand is perceived by the market because it takes into account positive and negative perceptions.

No company is perfect, and the brands we measured in the 2012 BBS are no different.  All brands in the 2012 BBS study had both positive (got better) and negative (got worse) connotations associated with it, and there were also are significant percentage of respondents who said their opinion of a brand had “stayed the same.”

In order to derive a more meaningful metric, we use the “change of opinion” data to calculate the  Net Change in Overall Opinion for each brand by subtracting the percentage of respondents who said a brand “got worse” from the percentage of respondents who said their opinion of a brand had “got better,” while ignoring the “stayed the same” responses.

This metric shows the brands that are perceived as getting better, and which are in decline, on an overall basis.

The Net Change in Overall Opinion presents a more balanced view each brand because it takes into account both the positive and negative perceptions of brands, along with how these opinions have changed over time.

 

The Net Change in Overall Opinion findings from the 2012 BBS are shown below in two ways:

  • An overall industry “league table” that shows the 30 highest ranked vendors for the metric “Net Change of Overall Opinion.”  The data in this chart is broken out globally and regionally.

 

  •  An analysis of the “frequency” of appearance of each vendor in the Net Change of Overall Opinion league table

 

The top 30 ranked brands for Net Change of Overall Opinion are shown below for both the global sample of all respondents as well as for all respondents in each of the geographic regions.

Please note that inclusion of any brand in any cut of the data shown the tables in this article is dependent on available sample size.  The minimum sample size for inclusion in these charts is 30 respondents per cut of the data. Therefore it is possible that a highly regarded brand was excluded from these findings based on sample size.

 

In all cases, these results are shown in alphabetical order, NOT in the order in which they were ranked by respondents to the study.


The 2012 BBS Net Change in Overall Opinion League Table:

 .

A total of 58 broadcast technology vendor brands are included in this table (up from 51 in 2011), illustrating the geographic variation of opinion. Analysis of these results shows that are some clear market leaders on a global basis, while others are strong on a regional basis.

It’s useful to understand how often each brand appears in the 2012 BBS Net Change in Overall Opinion League Table.

This is shown below, along with the equivalent data from the 2011 BBS for comparison.

 

Frequency of appearance of brands in the 2012 BBS Net Change in Overall Opinion League Table:

  • 9 brands appear four times (compared to 13 brands in 2011), meaning they were ranked in the top 30 globally and in each geographic region

 

  • 12 brands appear three times (compared to 10 brands in 2011)

 

  • 11 brands appear two times (compared to 9 brands in 2011)

 

  • 26 brands appeared one time (compared to 19 brands in 2011).  This illustrates a fragmentation of opinion  about many brands based on geography

Belden Grows Earnings 22 Percent on Lower Revenue in Q2 2012, Closes Miranda Acquisition

Broadcast technology vendor financials, Broadcast Vendor M&A, Quarterly Results | Posted by Joe Zaller
Aug 13 2012

Cable specialist Belden, which recently closed the acquisition of Miranda, and also owns Telecast Fiber Systems, reported that its revenue for the second quarter fiscal 2012 was $484m million, down 10% versus the same period a year ago, and up 4% compared to the previous quarter.

The company said that weakness in southern Europe and China was partially offset by strong performance in the Americas and Germany.

Despite the lower year-over-year revenue in the quarter, the company’s net income for the quarter was up 22% versus the same period a year ago, to $42.4m.

Operating income for the quarter was $58.35m, essentially flat with the previous year. The operating margin for the quarter was 12.1%, up 1.2% versus the same period a year ago, and up 2.6% versus the previous quarter.

The company kept a tight control on costs in the second quarter.  SG&A expenses for the quarter were $77.9m, down 8% versus the previous quarter. R&D expenses in the quarter were $15m, up 3% versus the previous quarter.

Broadcast revenue in the quarter was approximately $72m or 15% of total revenue.   These results do not include revenue from Miranda, which was acquired by Belden in July 2012.

 

Guidance for Q3 and Full Year 2012

Belden said it expects its Q3 2012 adjusted revenues to be in the range of $490m to $500m, with adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted share to be in the range of $0.69 – $0.74.  For the full year 2012 the company said it expects its adjusted revenue, inclusive of Miranda, to be in the range of $1.95Bn to $1.97Bn, with adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted share in the range of $2.95 – $3.05.  The company had previously said that it expected its full year 2012 revenues to be $1.98 – $2.02 billion and income from continuing operations per diluted share to be $2.75 – $2.90.

 

“I am pleased with our second quarter results, including margin expansion both sequentially and year over year in all segments,” said John Stroup, President and CEO of Belden.  “While I’m pleased with our execution, macroeconomic uncertainty is a concern. Therefore, we remain committed to funding our growth initiatives while closely managing our overall cost structure.”

Belden Grows Earnings 13 Percent on Flat Revenue in Q1 2012

Broadcast technology vendor financials, Quarterly Results | Posted by Joe Zaller
May 11 2012

Cable specialist Belden, which owns Telecast Fiber Systems, reported that its revenue for its fiscal quarter of 2012 was $464.3m, flat versus the same period a year ago, and above the $451.8m consensus analyst estimate.

The company said that stronger demand from the Americas offset weak international sales.

Despite flat year-over-year revenue growth, the company managed a double digit profit increase versus last year.

Company president and CEO John Stroup said he was pleased with the results.  “Our ability to expand margins and achieve 13% earnings growth demonstrates our improved business portfolio and consistent execution. The strong performance in the Americas more than offset the softer end-markets in Europe and China. This clearly shows the benefit of having built a globally diversified portfolio. We continue to make progress towards transforming the Company and accomplishing our long-term goals.”

 

Outlook

For the full year 2012, Belden expects revenues to be $1.98 – $2.02 billion and income from continuing operations per diluted share to be $2.75 – $2.90. “This guidance implies stronger year-over-year organic growth in the second half than the first, based primarily on the relative customer and channel inventory dynamic experienced one year ago,” said Stroup

“We expect to build upon the strong margins of the first quarter with seasonally higher revenue and favorable product platform mix in the second quarter. Therefore, we expect our second quarter 2012 revenues to be $500 – $510m and income from continuing operations per diluted share to be $0.73 – $0.78.”

The 2012 Big Broadcast Survey

broadcast technology market research | Posted by Joe Zaller
Apr 03 2012

I am pleased to announce that the 2012 Big Broadcast Survey (BBS), our annual study of the broadcast market, has been completed and that the reports from this project will be published soon.

We once again had record-breaking participation in this project.   Almost 10,000 broadcast professionals in 100+ countries participated in the 2012 BBS, making it the largest ever and most comprehensive market study of the broadcast industry.  We are humbled by and grateful for the unprecedented participation from so broadcast industry professionals who took the time to contribute to this year’s study.

The 2012 BBS offers unique insight into the broadcast industry by providing information about industry trends, budgets, capital projects, HD and file-based upgrade cycles, and more. It also provides detailed brand data on more than 100 broadcast technology vendors in 30+ product categories (see list in post tags below).

We created the BBS to help our clients, and readers of this website, better understand the issues and trends impacting the broadcast and digital media industries.  We received many positive comments about the BBS from both participants and our research clients, so we feel that we are on the right track and we will continue to publish data about the market on a regular basis.

We will begin to post summary data from the 2012 study on this website, so please check back regularly.

I will also be presenting a summary of the 2012 data on Sunday April 15th at the NAB Show, at a half-day conference session called Media Technology: Strategy and Valuation, which is being produced by Devoncroft, Silverwood Partners and the NAB Show.  It’s free for all registered NAB Show attendees, so please come along.

Ranking Broadcast Technology Vendors Part 2 – the 2011 BBS Net Change in Overall Brand Opinion League Table

broadcast industry technology trends, broadcast industry trends, broadcast technology market research, Broadcast Vendor Brand Research, market research, Top Broadcast Vendor Brands | Posted by Joe Zaller
Aug 04 2011

This is the fifth in a series of articles about some of the findings from the 2011 Big Broadcast Survey (BBS), a global study of broadcast industry trends, technology purchasing plans, and benchmarking of broadcast technology vendor brands.  More than 8,000 people in 100+ countries took part in the 2011 BBS, making it the largest and most comprehensive market study ever done in the broadcast industry.

 

Each year, as part of the Big  Broadcast Survey (BBS), we ask broadcast professionals worldwide to rank a variety of technology vendor brands on a wide range of metrics.  We use this information to create a series of reports, which through benchmarking and industry league tables” enable each vendors to understand its position in the market relative to their the industry as a whole as well as their direct competitors.

In a previous article we wrote about the 2011 BBS Overall Brand Opinion League Table, which shows how our global sample of broadcast professionals ranked 118 broadcast vendor brands in terms of their overall opinion of these vendors.

While it’s great for a vendor to be named to the top 30 for overall opinion, these rankings may be seen as somewhat one-sided because they rely primarily on the positive opinions of respondents. In order to get a better understanding of how broadcast technology vendor brands are perceived, it is necessary to look at both the positive and negative opinions of brands, and to take into account how these opinions have changed over time.

To achieve this, we first determine whether a respondent has an opinion of a brand, and then ask them how their opinion of that brand has changed over time – i.e. has it improved, declined or stayed the same.

When compared to the previously published ranking of overall opinions of brands, this methodology provides a more comprehensive picture of how a brand is perceived because it shows both the positive and negative opinions of each brand.

Sometimes these results highlight some interesting perceptions about brands.  Take for example the chart below, which is from our 2009 study.

 

 

 

In this case the brand that was top for “got better” was also top for “got worse.”

Given these results, it is perhaps more useful to find the Net Change in Overall Opinion for each brand, which is calculated by using the following formula:

GB-GW/# of total respondents = Net Change in Brand Image

In other words, the percentage of respondents who said a brand “got worse” is subtracted from the percentage of respondents who said their opinion of a brand had “got better” (ignoring the “stayed the same” number).

This takes into account both the positive and negative perceptions of brands, along with how these opinions have changed over time.  It also presents a more balanced view of which brands are getting better and which are getting worse in the minds of market participants.

Because some brands are polarizing (as seen in the example above), it’s possible that a strong “got better” response might be cancelled ut by a strong “got worse” response.  As a result some companies who were rated in the top 30 on just the “got better” score were not included in the global or regional top 30 because their high “got worse” score dragged down their overall result.  At the same time, a few of the companies with high “got worse” scores still made the top 30 list because these negative scores were cancelled out by even higher “got better” scores.

In order to arrive at the Net Change in Overall Opinion, research participants were asked whether their opinion of various brands had “got better”, “got worse” or “stayed the same” over the past 2-3 years.

.

The results of this enquiry are shown below in two ways:

  • An overall industry “league table” that shows the 30 highest ranked vendors for the metric “Net Change of Overall Opinion.”  The data in this chart is broken out globally and regionally.

 

  • An analysis of the “frequency” of appearance in the “Net Change of Overall Opinion” league table.”

 

The top 30 ranked brands for Net Change of Overall Opinion are shown below for both the global sample of all respondents as well as for all respondents in each of the geographic regions.

 

In all cases, these results are shown in alphabetical order, NOT in the order in which they were ranked by respondents to the study.

.

2011 BBS Net Chage in Overall Opinion League Table:

 

A total of 51 broadcast technology vendor brands are included in this table, illustrating the geographic variation of opinion.

In terms of frequency of appearance in this table:

 

  • 13 brands appear four times, meaning they were ranked in the top 30 globally and in each geographic region

 

  • 10 brands appear three times

 

  • 9 brands appear two times

 

  • 19 brands appear one time which demonstrates that some brands are strongest in one geographic area

 

 

Analysis of the data shows that are some clear market leaders on a global basis, while others are strong on a regional basis.

A breakdown of how many times each company appears in the ranking shows how many times each brand appears in the chart above.
