Asia Video Summit 2020

The Asia Video Summit is the the annual marquee event of the Asian video industry.  Its goal is to take stock, tell the story and assess the state of the video industry as 2020 comes to a close. This year’s summit will be held from 10 – 12 November. Conversations will centre around the State of Free-To-Air and Pay Television, a deep dive into the Streaming Industry and Premium Advertising, the Technology that underpins the entire industry, and what lies ahead for Sports. In addition, there will also be a particular focus on Gender Equality in the Media Industry.

 

Agenda

Day 1: 10 November 2020

REMEMBER TELEVISION?

We ask this question tongue in cheek, but with so much change in our industry we are prone to overlook the size and influence linear television still has today. It is still a giant compared to streaming. We assess the state of Free to Air and Pay TV and examine what the pressure to go direct to consumer means for traditional relationships between content owners and MVPDs.

How is COVID-19 Impacting the Economy and the Media Industry across Asia for the Year to Come? We hope the worst has passed and Asia’s economies are beginning to recover from COVID-19. However, the recoveries are unlikely to be fast or complete until better treatment or a vaccine makes its way to a large majority of the region’s (and the world’s) population. This opening presentation offers a macroeconomic update of the global economy, with a focus on Asia, and evaluates the possible recovery scenarios for the near future.

With Louis Boswell, CEO, AVIA

The Fortunes of Free TV

Free to air (FTA) TV remains a mainstay in Southeast Asia but as advertising markets have evolved and Covid has taken its toll, how do the economic fortunes of this sector stack up? With content that appeals to local audiences, it makes sense that online viewing becomes a bigger part of the business but how can the disparity in TV and online CPMs be reconciled? We take a look at the world of terrestrial channels, the challenges they face and what the new business models for today are.

Presentation and moderated by Annette Kunst, Regional MD, Southeast Asia and New Zealand, Nielsen Media

Followed by a panel discussion with:

Angeline Poh, Chief Corporate Development Officer, Mediacorp Sutanto Hartono, MD, PT. Elang Mahkota Teknologi (EMTEK) 

10:45

The Platform View: Platform & Provider – New Relationships for the New World

Is the symbiotic relationship between platform and content partner unravelling or is it being reinvented? How do pay TV platforms see the situation? Can costs be brought to an equilibrium that means survival for both sides and with more content providers going direct-to-consumer (DTC) are the pay TV platforms still the natural partners of choice?

Panellists

Vitto Lazatin, VP, Content Acquisition, Management & Strategy, CIGNAL TV Mamie Leung, SVP and Head of Content, PCCW Media

The Channel Provider View: Platform & Provider – New Relationships for the New World

This session turns the tables to see life from the viewpoint of the content owners. After a few turbulent years in this key relationship, is there an understanding of how to move forward together? With the thinning out of channels does it mean the remainers are now stronger and does having a DTC service strengthen the relationship, or actually undermine it?

Panellists

Salawati Mohamed, Head of Distribution and Partnership Development, A+E Networks Asia Alexandre Muller, MD APAC, TV5MONDE

Anne Chan, VP, Content Distribution Management and Emerging Business, Asia, ViacomCBS Networks Asia

Doubling Down on Pay TV

There are new channels being launched and new investments being made: what is the case for doubling down on Pay TV in 2020? In this session, we will ask what the rationale is behind these moves, what it means for content investment and cost management? And how do pay TV platforms see these developments?

STREAMING AHEAD

There is no let-up in the direction of travel for the streaming industry. More content investment, increasing numbers of services, record levels of consumption but also huge volatility which has seen the demise of HOOQ and the amalgamation of iflix into WeTV. We want to know how you scale a streaming business, how you market your services and differentiate products, and how is life different for national, regional, and global services.

Presenting Sponsor:

13:50

Telcos Talk: Aggregation and Subscription in Asia

How is the role of telcos evolving in 2020? Are they aggregators of other people’s services and content or are they becoming content platforms in their own right, or both? With more direct to consumer services proliferating, is there really a value proposition in having them all offered under one umbrealla?

And to what degree do consumers rely on their telcos for these services, or do they bypass them and subscribe directly? What is the unique role that telcos play in delivering video to consumers? Are they getting value from these video services?

Panellists

One Step Ahead: OTT TV Marketing

So you went Direct-to-the-Consumer – now what? Competing for a share of eyeballs today has never been more challenging, with all the other entertainment options available. It requires you to constantly improve your marketing competency for subscriber acquisition and retention. While acquisition campaigns focus on how viewers discover content, retaining users will be one of marketing’s hardest tasks, making churn reduction programs essential. Customer insights will be most valuable, serving both to increase engagement and reduce churn, with data on what keeps consumers pressing play. Greg Armshaw will share case studies, research data and practical tools to help attract and retain your online TV customers.

Greg Armshaw, Head of Media, Brightcove

International Perspectives: The Challenges of Streaming

The world is pivoting towards video streaming services more than ever before and 2020 has seen the entry of more major international players into more markets across Asia. How is the story unfolding for the international players covering multiple markets and regions? Is it more important to think about each market’s unique traits and get the service right on a bespoke basis, or is it a land grab and speed to market is key? We explore what challenges are being faced by regional and global streaming services and understand the priorities around content, localisation and ultimately business models.

15:10

Local Perspectives: The Challenges of Streaming

Nobody knows local tastes better than local players, so does this give the domestic streaming services an unassailable lead in winning the hearts and eyeballs of local subscribers? Or are consumers used to getting local content for free, boxing local services into AVOD business models that are yet to pay off? In this session, we will hear the views of a domestic streaming platform, pros and cons of being local and what is the optimal path to monetisation.

Bridging the Chasm: Businesses in Transition

Some content companies are betting the house on transitioning their linear business to streaming, others are doing their best to hold on to traditional business models and then there is everything in the middle. Do you need to go direct to consumer to survive, and if so does it have to be mass or are their niches to be filled? What is the right combination and strategy to bridge what is an undenaiable chasm in the evolution of the video industry.

The Video Tech Giants

When it comes to IP delivered video traffic, it is not streaming platforms that take centre stage, it is a world still dominated by UGC platforms and social media. But the boundaries between social and curated are blurring as tech companies looks more and more to premium content investments and partnerships with content producers and distributors. How is this dynamic going to change the traditional content industry over the coming years, and economically does it work equally to the advantage of content provider and tech platform?

OTT Video Ad Debate – Is it a TV Ad or an Online Ad?

The tradition of sitting through ads in exchange for being entertained began with radio, flourished with the arrival of television and has followed the mass migration online. Despite marketers’ efforts with advanced programmatic and data targeting for video ads, it is far from clear that consumers see targeted online ads more favourably than less targeted linear TV ads, and in some cases being chased around the internet by ads or seeing things you have already purchased makes what should be intuitive anything but.
