As with previous years, the Digital TV Summit brings together senior level representatives from broadcasters, satellite,
cable and pay TV operators, as well as leading analysts and solution providers, to learn more and keep up to date with
growing trends, new technologies and innovative solutions to ensure ROI and compete with the OTT players

 

Key topics which will be addressed include:

  • Successful Strategies to compete with OTT through Multiscreen
  • Bringing Digital TV into the Connected Era
  • New Opportunities for Content
  • Explosion of Social TV

 

For each of these issues, revenue generation, consumer demand and ensuring quality of service will be key focus areas.

New for 2013 is our key focus session looking at the arrival of 4K and showcasing the transition to 4K from HD, showcasing the opportunities and the challenges of 4K broadcasts, discussing the solutions to ensure 4K reaches its maximum potential, and highlighting the technology available to ensure successful broadcast of 4K.

As with previous years, the Digital TV Summit will bring together global leaders and innovators in this fast growth sector and is the only industry forum that provides you with an insight into the future of the entire ecosystem while at the same time hearing the key industry decisions directly from the people who make them.

Exclusive Speaker Interview with Peter Schulz, VP On Demand Programming, Sky Deutschland

How important is content as a differentiator for Sky Deutschland in the German pay TV market? How important is premium football and how do you plan to develop your offering over the next couple of years?

Content is what we do. There are lots of complexities around the various delivery mechanisms and user platforms. But in the end, we are tested by how well we can provide a mix of programming that people want and are prepared to pay for. Football, along with other sports, is one of the 3 key components of our platform. I sometimes describe it as a three-legged stool, consisting of sports, movies and entertainment. We will continue to invest in not only new and innovative programs, but also enhancements through production, presentation and technology to add value to the core programming assets.

To what extent can Sky differentiate its offering from that of Deutsche Telekom and the cable operators through technology and the user experience?

We are completely committed to the idea of the highest possible quality, both content and technical and to make it available to our subscribers anywhere and any time. This commitment infects everything we do, from program rights acquisition, through production, presentation and technical delivery. I think this is what sets us apart from everyone else in the market.

Who do you see as your main competitors in the market – Deutsche Telekom, cable or new OTT entrants, or the free-to-air market?
