  5. 5. MTV OPEN SOURCE Sharing our research and insights with the industry
  6. 6. i. Globalization vs. Localization ii. Asia loving Asia (and the world loving Asia too) iii. Fragmentation: unlimited choice vs. needed aggregation iv. Digitization: new frontiers, new opportunities
  7. 7. globalization Going out into the world, absorbing influences The world has never been more accessible: virtually via TV and the internet, or physically because of cheaper travel. People are curious to experience the new and exotic, to absorb cultures from around the world, and to integrate this into their globally infused lifestyles. A fascination with interesting themes and concepts from other places is a very solid trend and one we expect to be around for many years. It is a trend that brands can leverage by bringing the world closer to their consumers, or their consumers closer to the world. SOURCE: Synovate Trends / MTV Asia 2006 ©
  8. 8. globalization Going out into the world, absorbing influences Among Youth in Asia … 44%* like music from Korea 39%* like music from the USA 58% of under 25’s 29%* like music from China listen to music from artists around the 27%* like music from Japan world 13%* like music from the UK * Youth not from the country mentioned Dramatic shifts in where Asian youth are sourcing music from - less from the West, more from in the Region Music Matters SOURCE: Synovate Omnibus.

  10. 10. localization 156 TV channels, 137 websites, 32 broadband channels, and 40 mobile TV channels 497 million households Music, popular culture, fun, community - Youth Culture In Asia: 285 million homes, 10 dedicated television channels (including syndication in China to 180 million homes), plus 8 local language websites
  11. 11. localization Growing national pride, Growing cultural exports As the world gets smaller, national pride is getting stronger and larger. When the rest of the world is beating down your real or virtual door to take a look inside, a Nation gains confidence, increases efforts, and sends out more cultural exports. Look at Japan over the last decade, Korea over the last few years, and the rise of China and India as cultural hotspots in the coming decade. There are huge opportunities for exporting national brands (and bands) to a curious and eager world. SOURCE: Synovate Trends / MTV Asia 2006 ©

  15. 15. fragmentation The splintering of popular culture Sub-sub genres of music, niche media, cut and paste fashion, multiple youth tribes, international film, an explosion of the arts … The media can’t keep up with the splintering and fusing of pop culture, and the globalization / localization of it. Consumers are reaching out everywhere for everything: it’s an information and ideas explosion. Brands need to act as guides thru the options, as curators of worthy content, and as ambassadors of new ways to do things. SOURCE: Synovate Trends / MTV Asia 2006 ©

Males chat more than in the past - catching up with females 4. Their desire for connection drives most digital behaviour 5. Much of their surfing is random and unstructured 6. More watching than creating content 7. Their friendships are deeper and more meaningful 8. Media has become social currency - if it isn’t worth sending on, is it worth anything at all? 9. Parents pro-technology for safety and success reasons – but are being circumvented 10. They can access everything (music, friends, info, entertainment) SOURCE: MTV Circuits of Cool 2006 © (8 Country Qualitative)
  20. 20. Digital Youth … Many similarities around the world To some extent kids are becoming more similar the world over …. – Exposed to the same media – Internet content is truly global – They worry about the same things • School, career, friends, family • Being popular, being accepted, discovering who they are And, it is true to say that they are all ‘using’ the same technological devices BUT DIFFERENCES DO EXIST SOURCE: MTV Circuits of Cool 2006 © (8 Country Qualitative)
  21. 21. China Japan We assume Japanese teenagers are at the forefront Chinese youth the most interested and engaged by technology, by a long way of tech adoption – yet, actually are the most bored by it Culturally- a symbol of progress / becoming more western Reality: Extreme pressure to perform academically - Emotionally- really getting the most out of what is now little time to do anything other than go to school available SOURCE: MTV Circuits of Cool 2006 © (8 Country Qualitative)

  23. 23. The “1% Rule”: Usage research on sites like YouTube and Wikipedia show that 1% or less of all site users are uploading content, 10% or less are interactively posting comments, and 90% are happy just to watch and be entertained. User generated content: not everyone is uploading, despite popular opinion. And doesn’t this trend sound like television anyway?
  24. 24. digitization What Media / Medium Trends will be hot in 2007? 1. Expert Filtering - in this age of content, people like “top 10’s” and other tools to cut-thru the clutter. e.g. www.musicrecommenders.com NOKIA 2. Remix Apps - customization goes digital. Remix tools to mash up songs, videos and game environments. e.g. www.thirststudios.com HEINEKEN 3. Three Screens - consumers in high-speed digital markets say they want consistent content and community interaction across screens - with little compromise on quality. e.g. MTV Flux MTV FLUX With content delivered as it happens …
