  5. 5. IPTV Rollouts are not for Faint of Heart but Needed to Gain Greater Market Share The Business Case IPTV represents important competitive opportunities for communications companies and operators should be acting now to address their most important operational challenges. Service provisioning and customer service are extremely important, for example. So is storage and management of content, and developing true, end-to-end quality of service in a complex network. A robust and stable platform is the most important ingredient to success. Without such a platform, and the architecture that underpins it, operators cannot develop and retain the customer base necessary to succeed. What is IPTV? First of all, IPTV is not Internet TV. Internet TV is more aptly described as the ability to download streams of content over the open internet. Since the internet offers “best effort” delivery, especially to the home, the quality of user experience may suffer as the bandwidth availability rises and drops during the streaming session. This is one area where IPTV offers significant advantage over Internet TV. IPTV systems use a dedicated transport network to deliver exceptional quality of service leading to a much better experience for the end consumer. enabling better user experience With the wide variety of technology for IPTV, the choice becomes difficult, add to the wide variety of vendors quoting IPTV capability, the solution as a whole looses credibility. Techaccess Media Services (TAMS) works with it’s partners to deliver an end to end service for telcos, property developers and broadcast stations to realise the benefits of both IPTV and Internet TV. We are also able to provide content from our aggregators for your IPTV service. IPTV enables higher quality content to be delivered to your end client, allows organizations to monetize more effectively using services like VOD (Video on Demand), PPV (Pay per view), games, VoIP, and many more. IPTV has been proven worldwide that it increases market share from both subscription based revenue and advertising based revenue. Enabling a two way communication to the consumer enables more effective adverts to be positioned. Moving away from the traditional push based advertising, IPTV providers are now able to generate a greater accuracy in their statistics. Why Move to IPTV? The introduction of Internet Protocol provides the telecom provider with the ability to introduce a virtually unlimited number of services to the home. The IPTV infrastructure should be considered an enabler leading to better entertainment, communication and control of personal services and content. IPTV brings with it a number of additional benefits. First, depending upon the transport method, the pipe to the home is being increased to support between 20 Mbps and 50 Mbps. This increase in data speed to the home will support a mix of High Definition and Standard Definition channels along with internet service and multiple VoIP calls. IPTV will become an anchor service from which to attract and retain customers.
  6. 6. Studios that work for you. The business case The design and construction of a new production studio is a very daunting task. There are dozens of things that need to be considered and several rooms that need to interact seamlessly. A new studio will require thousands of pieces of equipment that need to be selected, tested and installed in a manner that creates an efficient and flawlessly functioning workflow. With so much to consider, you need a partner with the experience and expertise required to execute such a large project. Techaccess Media Solutions (TAMS) is the ideal company to help you into your new facility. We have tremendous experience in every phase of completing a new production studio. Unleash your creative potential! At tams we put the client in charge of the studios we design and build. Our systems specialists work closely with our customers to develop a plan specifically suited to their needs. Everything from the equipment to the overall workflow goes through our clients before any decision is made. Production Studios are often made up of several rooms that need to work together as one.

  7. 7. Media anywhere, anyhow, anytime! The Business Case The primary benefit of mobility is that it speeds things up. That is, employees don't need to wait until they're back in the office to access information. The primary benefit of collaboration is that improves overall context — employees have a better and more targeted information base from which to make decisions. Mobiles are now new media enabled by default, able and enabled to access media & entertainment at all times via high speed connectivity like 3g, wifi and other forms of wireless access. However building a mobile application requires a strong business case: both in terms of increased efficency and revenue. Operators and others are starting to realise the value of this untapped market. With fast connectivity cost becoming more affordable, consumers are increasing adoption of wireless packages, but without VAS (Value Added Services), there is only so much revenue that can be acquired from wireless data packages.

We offer a comprehensive suite of solutions that deliver any multimedia content to any device, focusing on the best possible user experience to drive consumer adoption of converged services like MMS, mobile & web TV, user generated content and video on demand. Being able to create an ecosystem for the ingestion, optimization, management, delivery of multimedia content is key to service success. The only way for network operators to monetize these new services is to own the infrastructure that controls the management and delivery of the content. The User experience is crucial, so it is mandatory to manage best look and feel for each device and network variations. The only way to profitably introduce these new services is on a modular platform that is able to help with management of the bandwidth necessary for the roll out.

  8. 8. Quantifying the value of Digital Signage Why digital signage? Getting the attention of your audience is the most important part of any display. With “video-like” digital signage, viewers are not only more likely to notice your dynamic sign but research shows they are more likely to receive the message and act on it. Your content can dynamically change to deliver a focused message to your targeted audience at each point of playback (location). Eliminating the need to print and distribute static signs each time your message or campaign changes saves on costly printing and distribution fees. Operation can be done in house or outsourced. No heavy logistics. No more hours lost reprinting outdated or erroneous materials. Benefits of Digital Signage Digital Signage messaging is dynamic, possessing the capability to display complex graphics and videos, resulting in attention garnering messages. The marketing messages are capable of rapid deployment system-wide, store-wide or in a single store aisle, and can leverage specific regional and store conditions, such as customer demographics, weather conditions, promotions, educational content, and can further be fractionalized into day-parts. The Signage networks can be centrally monitored, ensuring that system-wide, brand-compliant messages are deployed. This represents a major advantage over other forms of in-store communications, which are plagued with questions of store compliance. The Effective Dynamic marketing can enhance customer service and improve store personnel productivity. Digital signage assists customers in locating the merchandise they are looking for in the store, and can provide in-depth information and product demonstrations to aid in the purchase decision. Digital signage marketing networks can reduce in-store operating costs associated with graphics deployments and increase labor productivity relative to other types of signage. Digital Signage eliminates the costs associated with printing, distributing and installing static signage. In addition, Digital Signage may decrease store labor costs, while improving labor productivity. For example, the UAE Postal Service is experimenting with digital signage marketing to direct customers with simple service requirements to self-service options, and to educate customers while waiting in the lobby line about products and services to reduce time spent with a retail associate at the counter, thus improving its employee productivity. Most Importantly, the Digital signage marketing networks are capable of timely and accurate measurement of a message's impact upon a consumer. Integration Concepts With our experience in integrating various forms of live data into a digital signage network, such as live telephone PBX data, live weather data and others we can provide you a system to suite your specific needs.
