Kate Bulkley and Mika Salmi at Mipcom 2009

Mika Salmi recently left Viacom/MTV Networks where he was the key proponent of the "thousand front doors strategy" to give individual TV shows Web presence and also expanding the company's social networking efforts. He came to Viacom as part of its $200 million acquisition of Atom Entertainment, itself a merger of AtomFilms.com, which Salmi founded, and Shockwave .com. Salmi straddles both technology and content and he will be discussing with Journalist Kate Bulkley some of the pitfalls and opportunities he sees ahead.

What is the Impact of Connected Entertainment on the Television Industry?

Esterel, Level 5

The TV is no longer a standalone device in the corner of the lounge. Increasingly the TV is connected to the Internet, opening the TV screen up to the World Wide Web. Broadcasters and the Pay TV operators are being joined by new players like Yahoo!, XBox and Hulu.com in the bid for people's attention. Connected entertainment brings new opportunities for building viewer interactivity and loyalty but it also means there is more competition for valuable leisure time. How are the players involved coping with the new connected world?

Esterel, Level 5

Sites like YouTube and Tudou.com (China) have been joined by more sophisticated Web video services like Hulu.com and TV.com as Web-delivered video becomes the "new television". So how are the traditional Pay TV companies coping with video from outside their own EPGs?

Javier Perez Dolset, President & CEO, Zed Worldwide

Interviewed by: Kate Bulkley, Journalist & Media Commentator

Auditorium A, Level 3

The rules of the game have changed. Content will remain king but how to make money out of it when advertising revenue shrinks, piracy grows and follow-the-free is becoming a paradigm for both Mobile and Internet platforms? Many consolidated players are struggling to survive in a new environment where scale and global franchisees are no longer enough.People want to watch, play, talk, learn, share and compete no matter whether they are at home or on the move, and whatever the technology behind the different devices. Multiplatform digital entertainment is here to stay and requires a different approach. Come and discover how a global player like Zed builds 360º digital plans around top–tier content worldwide


Kate moderated a keynote session on the future for broadcast journalism at this year's IBC in Amsterdam on 12 September. See below for details or go to www.ibc.org

Closing keynote: Is the broadcasting journalist a threatened species?

Conference Streams: Technology Advancements Content Creation and Innovation

Date/Time: 12 Sep 2009 17:30-18:30

Chair: Kate Bulkley Freelance Business Journalist UNITED KINGDOM


James Baker, General Manager, Current TV, UNITED KINGDOM

Andrew Hawken, Editorial Director, Online, Sky, UNITED KINGDOM

Sarfraz Manzoor, Journalist, The Guardian, UNITED KINGDOM

Vir Sanghvi, Editorial Director of the Hindustan Times

Raymond Snoddy, Freelance Journalist, Media commentator, UNITED KINGDOM

Session Details:

On the one hand, news is seen as a defining characteristic of television, whether it is creating the identity of a local station in a crowded market or one of the great trusted international brands like Al Jazeera, BBC or CNN.

And on the other hand there is the rapid growth of user-generated content and the world where we are all journalists. Is there a need for real journalism any more? Is there a business model to pay for high quality, impartial news gathering? We are already seeing the rapid decline of the newspaper industry: will the same happen to television news?

Deborah Rayner, managing editor of CNN International, sets out the case for broadcast journalism in a keynote. She will then be joined by James Baker of Current TV - a business founded by former vice president Al Gore which encourages and relies upon user-generated content – and other leading print, online and broadcast journalists in a panel debate.

This is about more than just the nightly news: it goes to the very heart of the broadcasting industry. Make sure your voice is heard.

High definition TV is now almost considered old hat: the new, big thing is 3D TV and it’s no longer a wonky experiment but something that everyone from ITV and the BBC to Sky are serious about.

Come to the first UK public demonstration of 3D and see 3D TV material. Hear from those on the cutting edge: what does 3D mean for the producer, the broadcaster and the viewer? What implications are there for the business of television? How soon will we see 3D without putting on those wonky paper glasses?

No matter what aspect of TV you work in, this event is essential to take your understanding of 3D to the next dimension.

In cooperation with ACT

Companies that do not innovate lose their competitive edge. This is especially true in the fast moving world of digital entertainment, broadband internet and telecom services. How are cable operators and content players addressing innovation in their organisation? Do these industries in?uence and cross-fertilise each other’s innovation process? Is there room for inceased capital spending and R & D in today’s distressed market? Is service innovation the central focus or is technological innovation leading the way forward? What is making HD, interactive advertising and VOD successful or will the real benefit of technology be in enhanced customer relationship management?

Kate moderated the Mipcom Jr Keynote on Sunday 12 October by Cyma Zarghami, President of Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group (US)




Sunday 12 October: 16.45 – 17.30

Grand Salon, Carlton Hotel


Cyma Zarghami, President of Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group (US)

Interviewed by:

Kate Bulkley, Journalist (UK)P>

It may be hard to believe, but Nickelodeon will celebrate its 30th year of entertaining kids in 2009. From its beginning as very small US-based channel, to its position today as the leading kids' entertainment brand with 52 channels, 72 websites and 16 mobile services globally, Nick's mission remains focused on connecting kids to their world and one another through entertainment. Nickelodeon and MTVN Kids and Family Group President Cyma Zarghami is one of the leading architects of the Nickelodeon philosophy, and has led the brand to its current position as the number-one cable network in the United States for the 14th straight year. Ms. Zarghami discussed how Nickelodeon's core brand attributes and ability to create multiple hit properties for localized audiences has resulted in a truly global brand that celebrates all that is similar and unique about kids around the world.


Under Ms. Zarghami’s leadership, Nickelodeon has been the number-one-rated cable network in the United States for 14 straight years and has been the pre-eminent producer of original content for kids across all entertainment platforms, from animated mega hits SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora, the Explorer to live action tween hits iCarly and Zoey 101 and major events such as the Kids’ Choice Awards. She oversees all business operations for its divisions, including: Nickelodeon and Nick at Nite; Noggin; The N; Nicktoons Network; Nick Movies; Nickelodeon’s consumer products, magazine and recreation businesses; and Nickelodeon’s growing portfolio of digital properties including all of the Nickelodeon branded websites, Neopets, Shockwave, AddictingGames, ParentsConnect, and Quizilla. She has expanded the brand through the launch of hotels, theme parks and a new multi-year partnership with Sony Music Label Group.


At Mipcom TV Market October 13 to 17 2008 Cannes, France

Kate moderated the morning of the Broadband Video Summit on Wednesday October 15

Highlights include:

A keynote address by Chad Hurley, founder of YouTube.

Venue: Grand Auditorium


Venue: Grand Auditorium

Broadband entertainment is all about making attractive content available to users. There is a land grab going on as content aggregation sites like blinkbox.com race to put together the best sites to attract viewers, users, and advertisers, and therefore more and better content. YouTube still tops the charts in overall video views but others are making deals with broadcasters and producers and carving out their own particular niches. Meanwhile, broadcasters and producers are spreading their bets, backing their own sites (like hulu.com and Kangaroo in the UK) as well as syndicating content to others.

Content is increasingly being created for broadband sites, both professionally and from consumers themselves. But the nascent business is moving beyond the original YouTube model as producers and traditional media look to create content that works on the Web and has a workable business model. Content platforms that offer guidance in how to create and syndicate online content are springing up and producers – both from traditional TV and film- are looking to revamp what they do for the broadband world.

Is BBC Worldwide taking over the world? Having bought Lonely Planet, opened offices from Melbourne to Mumbai, invested in indies and now making its own shows, it's come a long way from simply selling old programmes. But do these commercial, risk-taking activities threaten to undermine the BBC brand? BBC Worldwide responded to these questions and put into context its role around the world. Alex Graham of Wall to Wall and PACT and Tony Elliott of Time Out also gave their perspective.

Superpanel- The Distribution Platforms

Click here to view a video stream of the panel.

TV is no longer simply about the airwaves. Many of the companies formerly known as telephone companies have expanded their portfolio and have spent in some cases billions to upgrade their networks to deliver video as well as their more traditional voice and broadband products. But even as these IPTV networks are starting to grow, other companies are using the open internet to deliver programmes and entire streamed channels to audiences. Joost and Babelgum -and many others- are vying to be the new delivery platforms for video content. What are the differences in their delivery and interactive capabilities and techniques for programmers and how do the business models compare?

Exclusive or not? Where do you license your content in the fast-changing broadband and IPTV delivery environment? Studios and programmers are trying out a host of different strategies from launching their own platforms (see NBC Universal and Fox) or teaming up with established sites form MySpace to YouTube to licensing to telco TV operators like Tiscali, BT Vision and Orange. What have been the results so far? What are customers using - downloads or streamed services? What revenue sharing seals are programmers and network operators willing to strike? Is ad-supported content the way to go for content? As exploitation windows get closer, how does this effect the money to be made from telco TV and platforms like Joost and Babelgum?

Getting To The Next Level

Advertiser Funded Programming (AFP) is a great and simple idea. Brands are seeking different and more engaging ways to interact with TV viewers and have money to spend. Broadcasters are facing challenges to their traditional advertising revenue and looking for new ways of funding their programming ambitions. So do we have AFP programmes ready to hit the terrestrial channels? What's happening outside the UK? Everyone - brands, commissioners, inde and in-house producers - say they want to see a step change in how brands and broadcasters work together. What will make it happen?

Roger Crumpton, CEO International Association of Broadcasting Manufacturers - representing broadcasting and media technology suppliers worldwide

In this highly participative open session they tackled the globalisation of technology and technology companies.

More than half of the broadcast and media technology market is served by just ten global companies. Are their current mergers and acquisitions driven by global expansion dreams or local efficiency needs? Is there a place for niche suppliers and how does consolidation impact customers? How does technology convergence influence change? Do content companies know how to specify and implement their requirements? How do suppliers support complex interoperable environments?

They tackled all these issues and the bigger question: whether to implement your own technology infrastructure or outsource it to a specialist provider.

Are You being You Tubed?

The rise of user-generated content - what is the impact on TV professionals?

User-generated content is the latest web phenomenon, with sites like YouTube, MySpace and Oh My News attracting billions of users and sky-high valuations. Its influence is spreading fast into broadcast television. After suing Google (the owner of YouTube) for $1 billion earlier this year for infringing copyright, media giant Viacom has paired with NBC to launch its own version of YouTube. TV news programmes are beginning to incorporate UGC into newscasts and a new TV channel backed by former US vice president Al Gore - Current TV - boasts at least a third of its output comes from "users".

This session, chaired by journalist Kate Bulkley, asked how business models stack up in the fast-evolving world of broadband-delivered video? Who is out in front? Can exploiting synergies between online and broadcast turn "hits" into profits? The television landscape is being transformed as people spend more time online. How do broadcasters embrace the new reality of the web that has given a voice and a camera to millions?

Kate interviewed Lisa Opie, MD of content at Five on Saturday 25th August at the Media Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival. The sesson was at 15:30 in The Sidlaw Level 3 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Edinburgh, Scotland.

Lisa Opie was appointed Managing Director of Content in December. She has overseen the acquisition of the popular soap Neighbours away from the BBC, and says she wants to strengthen the channel's factual programming, increase the channel's entertainment output and deliver the best in US drama. But after ten years, and with a slipping audience share - what is the channel's distinct vision. And how does it define itself in the terrestrial and digital market.

User-Generated Content is the latest web phenomenon with sites such as YouTube, MySpace and Bebo attracting millions of users and sky-high valuations, and its influence is now spreading to broadcast television.

Former US Vice President Al Gore is backing Current TV, a UGC site and TV channel that launches in the UK in March, and Channel 4 has plans to turn E4.com into a standalone social networking site which will include online auditions for Big Brother. BSkyB also has plans to launch its own UGC site, in partnership with Google, which recently paid $1.6billion for YouTube. MySpace.com, owned by News Corp., is the most-visited UGC site in the UK with 6.2 million monthly users (and nearly 80 million registered users worldwide), according to recent research from ComScore, but so far all the social networking/UGC sites are struggling to find commercially-viable revenue models. Can the exploitation of synergies between online and broadcast help to turn ratings into profit?

This session brought together senior executives from the UK and the US to discuss how the TV and content landscape is changing, and who's going to make money from it.

Digital Distribution SuperPanel 1. 11.00am-12.00pm, Oct 10, 2006. The Strategic Impact on Existing Business and Release Windows & New Opportunities for Film & TV

With over 50% penetration rates in most markets, the broadband boom is in full force around the world.Young audiences want content in digital form and they would rather download their entertainment to their laptops or mobile devices than go to the cinema or watch TV. Movie downloads, internet TV channels and digital asset management are permanently on studio heads' minds. Release windows are changing, namely narrowing down or reversing, and innovative producers and studios are adjusting the way they do business, to be ready to take advantage of new opportunities.

This first of two SuperPanels, took an in depth look at the strategic impact as well as the threats and opportunities emerging from Digital Distribution for Film and TV content in the coming 6 to 12 months.

Media, technology and customers are in full evolution. Traditional broadcasting organisations are active in more and more media. New media opportunities are appearing - for gaming, broadband internet, user generated content, podcasting, mobile, and more. New services are offered - PVR, On Demand, interactivity, etc.

Do broadcast organisations have to follow this trend? Do they have to evolve from radio and television to more media or to more services? A panel helped you to decide.

There were presentations and panelists from a broadcasting company, an international media production company and the gaming industry.

Kate talks with Ashley Highfield, BBC Director of New Media & Technology

The BBC’s new media and technology arm run by Ashley Highfield has been both pioneering and provocative, with developments from interactive websites to internet players. But the BBC’s Creative Futures initiative brings his division centre stage.

In this special event, Ashley Highfield talked about his vision for new media going forward, the BBC iPlayer, and whether plans for bbc.co.uk 2.0 are likely to be anywhere near a public service version of MySpace.com.


Kate moderated two sessions at the TV Revenue 2006 conference on May 9, 2006 sponsored by TV Conferences.

The session at 2.30pm: New Revenues – What’s Next?

New television formats and delivery methods bring with them new challenges. TV subscriptions are traditionally paid for by the head of the household, so will younger audience attracted by short form programming, and juggling busy lifestyles, be willing to pay for content or should other funding mechanisms be explored. Can interactive services continue to thrive and which formats are the most lucrative?

Kate Chaired the am conference on April 5 at Mip-TV, Cannes, France

Convergence of Telecoms & Broadcasting: Who Will Be In Control ?

With the growing power of broadband and wireless networks, telecommunications companies are aggressively grabbing key sports and entertainment rights to position themselves in the high-stakes media business. BT TV has signed a deal with Endemol for "enhanced" content as well as with Paramount and Warner Music. Telecommunications operators, such as Telecom Italia and France Telecom are joining their fixed line and wireless divisions, so that IPTV services sit alongside of its mobile TV services. Meanwhile, Pay TV operators are devising new strategies to compete against the telcos' emerging power. In this landscape where Telcos, pay-TV operators and broadcasters are vying for power, who will control the customer relationships? What is the future of Pay-TV in a broadband world where VOD is ramping up? What is the future of telecommunications in this new landscape where media plays a key role?

Kate moderated the morning of the 3rd European HDTV Summit on Feb 16, 2006.

100 Days, Are we there yet?

2006 was expected to 'the year of HD' before 2005 was half through. However, the trickle of HDTV announcements has turned into a flood, and by the end of 2006 viewers will be enjoying HD services in Germany, the Benelux, France, UK/Ireland, Italy, Austria, and Scandinavia. Someone has to be the pioneer, and the first mainstream HD channels were from Sat1/Pro7 in Germany (on October 26). We ask what is the verdict so far? How did Premiere fare launching HD to a country still widely satisfied by analogue? What has been the experience/expectation of other existing and imminent HD broadcasters? Are the programme libraries available? Is HD production an evolutionary or revolutionary step? Is the reception equipment effective, and available? What has been the reaction of the viewers and subscribers? Crucially, how many people have now got it, or even want it? Crucially, is free-to-air the way to go, or has pay-TV the edge? Has Europe finally 'gone HD' and what are its prospects over the next few years.

The New Media Rights fight panel --RTS from right to left Kate Bulkley, moderator Andy Duncan, CEO Channel 4 Jonathan Sykes, MD content at Home Choice Alex Graham, CEO Wall to Wall Justin Judd, founder i-Rights

Producers make programmes for broadcasters, but with technologies like IPTV and mobile video there are increasingly other ways for audiences to view these programmes. The question is: who should be allowed to exploit these new media rights, broadcasters or producers, or some combination of the two? Producers say they own the rights to the programmes they make and should be able to exploit them in the new media. Broadcasters warn that allowing the programmes they commission to be shown extensively on new media platforms will undermine their businesses.

Media regulator Ofcom publishes its initial thinking in a January consultation paper. Is there a way of resolving the differences, or is all out war inevitable? Hear how the two sides are lining up and how the arguments could impact on the businesses of broadcasters, producers and platform owners.

Kate spoke at The Regent Conference 2006 - Creating profit in the markets ahead as convergence and global resourcing apply their influence

Sheraton Park Lane Hotel, Piccadilly, London W1J 7BX

Feb 8 2006.

Convergence between information technology, telecommunications, electronic media and content has long been talked about and is now starting to have an impact. Some estimates predict that it will lead to a $1 trillion shift in valuations and revenues by 2010.

The opportunity to gain competitive advantage requires not only strong and effective management but also forward-looking, flexible corporate strategies.

It is therefore vital that UK organisations understand how the sector is evolving and are in a strong position to capitalise on the opportunities that will arise.

Now in its 11th year, the Regent Conference provides the opportunity to learn from some of the world's most prominent industry authorities and offers a forum to exchange ideas, practical experiences and knowledge with like-minded professionals to determine the key factors shaping the industry landscape.


HDTV: Killer or Niche Market?

Pat Younge, Discovery USA

Chaired By Kate Bulkley rts early evening – 8 November 2005

“It blows your mind,” says BSkyB’s James Murdoch. The picture quality is “like going from black & white to colour” says David Hill of DirecTV in the US.

The UK is streets behind Japan, South Korea and the US. American viewers will have 16.5m HDTV sets in use by Christmas and 48m by 2010. The UK forecast is for just 2.6m HD sets by 2010.

Early in 2006 Sky will launch a package of HD channels, adding to the seven dedicated HD channels that will be available in Europe by then. But will HD ever be more than a niche market? Why should producers care? How do broadcasters benefit? And will viewers really be blown away?

Triple Play Strategies of Leading Broadband Operators

Miptv 2005 in Cannes, France

13 Apr 2005

Esterel, Level 5 of the Palais

For information, click here.

Telephone companies, cable and IPTV operators are putting billions into upgrading their networks for the digital delivery of content. By 2008 there will be an estimated 111 million digital TV homes in Europe, including digital satellite, digital terrestrial, digital cable and broadband. Most European governments plan to switch off analogue TV transmissions in the next 6 to eight years. The networks are digitising so how will operators as well as content companies make money? For cable operators like Comcast and UGC it is about the triple play of selling TV. telephone and broadband. BT in the UK realises that broadband is a more significant revenue stream going forward than voice caliing and the telephone giant is just launching its new entertainment unit. Hollywood studios are also getting serious about video on demand services in Europe. This panel will look at how these players plan to use digital technology to deliver more services from VOD to voice over IP to IPTV.

The RTS Panel (photograph by 160 Characters)

The mobile phone is in transition from being a simple communications tool to becoming a mobile entertainment device. As mobile network operators roll out more sophisticated 3G networks, a key killer application is mobile video, which represents a significant opportunity for TV companies and content producers.

TV 2 GO brings together several of the most significant players to talk about what they are doing and what their plans are going forward. Vodafone began offering short “mobisodes” of US drama 24 to UK mobile customers earlier this year. Nokia and the BBC are part of a recently launched and pioneering TV to mobile trial in Oxford and Yoomedia Mobile (formerly Whoosh) has developed a Who Wants to be a Millionaire mobile application that is bringing in significant revenues.

TV 2 GO is a rough guide for producers about what the current opportunities are in mobile multimedia; how the business models are being set up; and how to engage with mobile operators.

There’s a huge battle taking place between MPEG-4/Pt.10 and Microsoft’s WM9/VC9 compression codecs. Which will win? Can the MPEG licensing problems be resolved? We also ask where does this leave legacy equipment devoted to MPEG-2? This conference will also examine whether HDTV has any future for existing MPEG-2-based broadcasters, and whether the theoretical ‘Shannon Limits’ for compression have now been reached.

Under Lock and Key - Card or Cardless?

Protecting content through encryption is increasingly the norm. How far might this be extended within the home? What advances in conditional access will maintain the security of premium programming? Hollywood wants programming ‘flags’ to gain widespread use: how can file sharing be prevented from circumventing rights windows or is it already too late? What are the differences between smart card technology for the set-top box and the telephone? Indeed, will the smart card even survive?

Just like when we were told the CD (and more recently the music download) would kill music purchasing and the DVD would keep people from going to the cinema, at the dawn of the age of the PVR people were telling us that it would bring about the death of the 30-second advertisement and with it, deliver a body blow to the TV business. Well, the media have changed for sure, but not as quickly as first expected. Someone has to pay for content – be it songs, Hollywood movies or documentaries on Sea Lions and there are many questions about how the business models will need to change to cope with Digital Lifestyle products like the PVR. Pioneering companies are realising that there is a lot of value in licensing content beyond the sale of the TV/Film/Song. Our panel of experts will look at some of the clever ways to ensure someone does pay for content and have some real-life examples like targeted & personalised advertising, branded content, parallel advertising channels, interactive applications and character licensing, among others. The delivery of content to new platforms like mobile also opens up potential additional revenue streams. The traditional broadcast TV business model may be under threat, but there is revenue beyond the 30-second spot.

Cavendish Conference Centre 22 Duchess Mews, London, W1

Kate produced and moderated Video Napster? Is the Internet going to steal your programming and your audience?

rts early evening

We’ve been here before. It happened to the music business, led by the free music download site Napster. Despite legal efforts in the US against Napster and others (including individual consumers), global music sales are still falling – some 11% in the first half of this year – and a big part of the problem is internet piracy. As broadband speeds increase on PC’s, the ease of downloading episodes of The Simpsons or the latest Bond film becomes as easy as downloading a song, just a matter of minutes rather than hours. Does the TV and film business face the same fate as the music business?

Come and hear from a panel of concerned experts and concerned players about the threat and possible solutions for the TV and film business against the Napster effect.

September 11-15, 2003

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Kate moderated at IBC 2003 (International Broadcasting Convention) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands during the Digital Lifestyles Day on Sept. 12. The session was on business, production and legal issues involved with the digitalisation of media content.

The digitisation of media is likely to have an affect on the creation and distribution of media - broadcast will change. With what some may feel are threats, there are also new production opportunities for significantly more focused TV channels.

If the PVR becomes the norm, it will change the way that people structure their TV viewing. Alongside the convenience of time-shifting programs, comes the reality that advertising can be skipped. How will the advertiser and broadcaster react to this?

With perfect digital copies of content potentially being made available to everyone, media owners have serious concerns about the duplication of their content. We explore all of these issues.

There is already a lot of gambling going on using the remote control. From Avago's TV bingo-like game to betting on horses with Channel 4's attheraces, to having a flutter on football at Ladbroke's iTV service, there is ample opportunity for couch potatoes to bet.

This RTS looked at how gambling on iTV is shaping up and how it looks to fare in the face of the government's new bill on gambling, expected to be ready for the next parliament. Is gambling the new revenue hop for iTV.
