me - live music & event production / TV and radio outside broadcast Inder - director / producer / camera op / editor / gfx / Canne matt - worked in many different parts of business - show audio producer - pitch - now video Blake - K & J - creativity skill wasted on one show (especially K & J) Joel - live music and event production - awesome all rounder - runs studio, great knowledge bank
quality - being “quality” not necessarily HD glossy big budget content, engaging, not only win - but also retain them.
2012 - and particularly 13 were years of growth and establishment. clive has certainly become captain of the ship and provided direction and strategy to what we are doing.
*Excluding Scoopla* some massive numbers in 2012 - early 13 (april) due to content without copyright being uploaded which has since been removed.
april / may shows
combined ooyala and youtube Year on Year. moving forward - 2014 year for really growth for today network new exciting shows - heavy focus on video content - cameras in studios - big tactics with strong video support
less illegal content - strong steady performer. average of around
strong growth year on year - sport being a big selling point here, and huge opportunities in 2014 between our NRL / AFL coverage and
year on year for the most part has been strong
growing but not at the pace of digital video in general… the true year on year growth will be 13 / 14.
music - still a thirst - covers katy perry when back in town..
what does this mean for 2014 - GROWTH & ACCURACY
care and maintenance - lens caps - lens cleaning responsibility - if you see something - say something - new policy coming soon everyone to sign security - if you don’t have a lock up - please tell me Myself and Joel are contacts for repairs and maintenance. barcode system in my net that tracks all gear and serial numbers -
maybe use live example here. naming conventions - show name - video name
a lot of talk around which way we should go these are the 3 x industry standards FCP X no good - new licences are hard to come by - obvious benefits to a single platform -
Nova Red room / house of hits / new set ideas
Bonja Triple J - Like a version
mix / interactivity of Radio 1 -> click through to youtube channel - use our content to drive more views to our channels - also shows the artist endorsement
we set the standard - everyone in room is the best at what they do - we are already better than our competitors. we are more creative, we execute better, we are more strategic and we are by far better resourced. example is one of the biggest changes to the industry in my career, hats of to chris and clive for picking a great song - and pushing the idea
keep these 3 x things top of mind - we are a broadcasting business - audio should always be spot on deadline driven world -particularly video content that follows radio show - no point making an epic video if its late, and already old news or not topical. radio people are so now - radio and audio is quicker to produce - smaller file size the whole point - keep people watching longer and coming back for more
so many codecs and formats, different types of software to be familiar with when dealing with video. next slide helps to explain the process a video goes through
1 - video, audio and metadat information 2. compression - H.264 - new compression Googles VP9 provides more than a 50% reduction in bandwidth at same quality 3. wrapper into something the software understands to playback - .mov .wmv .flv etc
Ooyala supporting HD now - need to make this the standard - improve quality of everything. PCR’s and thinking of other business units - sizzle reels - need a Clean Export in HD for this purpose.
Issues syncing exported MP3 to final cut pro - digital clicking Take a line direct to camera where possible - quicker turnaround levels - always check when recording and when exporting Headphones! a handbook will be distributed with new camera policy next week
Pro’s - cinematic look, still and video, small portable, records on compact flash cons - so many things to add…. H.264 codec, focus sensitivity, shaky shots, pro sumer connectivity
noisey - skin tone - ex is a little green cameras are quite old and not very well maintained.
benefits - larger monitor, records in pro res or MXF - solid state drive - additional back up - great audio meters and functions
gopro app - everyones should download some accessories in sydney
studios like these are becoming more and more common - commercial buildings - non traditional “broadcast” camera chains explain the way we shoot - triple m etc why scoopla & why
configuration - 4 x cameras, autocue, ccu and TD position, GFX, Pro video player, lighting, green screen & DVN ISDN Capabilities - interviews / music
difficult to do well - so many devices - screen sizes - different connection speeds - spent a lot of time testing and refining the quality. People to contact should be me & mike Crothers when planning - think about what will happen before / during song / adbreak / after? how soon can you have on demand?
via sydney due to - bandwidth on output, iOS & android please do not use upstream etc… we loose out on ads, get 3rd party ads etc….. please always ask - and check RE budgets Scoopla - Live red carpet coverage.
need to think about: promotion in lead up, during and post stream. need producer and talent buy in… Matt & Jo Final show - 16,460 - melbourne only Bump - Wednesday night live - cameras in studios
encourage everyone to share knowledge and skills a heavy focus on training and support of other markets new content ideas - the bump - wednesday night live scoopla - refresh new show support Footy season commencement thanks and looking forward to a huge year!

Ooyala vs Youtube
Ooyala is a great premium & local content platform. YouTube is where social
(surprise and delight) + international celebrity video shines.
Getting the most out of Youtube
Create content that is unique, compelling, and entertaining or informative.
Captivate your viewer in the first 15 seconds, and keep them watching
throughout the video.
Include specific Calls to Action in the video itself, or through annotations.
Set a recurring schedule for your uploads, and maximize your production
Create a programming calendar. Create content around tent-pole events that
are important to your audience.
Create a channel experience that guides viewers across multiple videos and
communicates everything your channel has to offer.
Think of your channel as a broadcast network, not only do you feature your
own content but you should also collate other relevant content through
Playlists should be an essential part of your channel strategy. Not only do
they increase watch-time, they create another asset that will appear in
search results and in Suggested Videos. You can create playlists using your
own videos, other videos, or a combination of both.

International celebrity / 'topical' or 'tentpole' events rate well on YouTube
Headline matters more on YouTube.
Short term performance of Ooyala vs YouTube
Vine, Instagram & Facebook Video
Vine / Instavideo. Perfect for little talent "sketches" or behind the scenes
moments that won't drive huge traffic or revenue. Also a great medium
for tactic clues.
Facebook video perfect to host teases to local premium content.
