5 reasons why media delivery standards might be good for your business
Posted: Thursday, May 22, 2014
Like me, I am sure that you have been to a restaurant in a group and everyone orders from the set menu EXCEPT for that one person who orders the exotic, freshly prepared fugu, which requires an extra 30 minutes of preparation from a licensed fugu chef so that the customers don't die eating it. Restaurant etiquette means that our main course is served at the same time, forcing everyone to spend a long time hungry, waiting for the special case. And if you split the bill equally, the special case becomes subsidised by the people wanting the set meal. Does this model relate to the media industry? Is there a cost for being special? How can we reduce that cost? What gets done with the cost savings? How can you help?
 
Fortunately those 5 questions lead into 5 reasons why delivery standards might be a good idea.

Posted: Thursday, April 24, 2014
Anybody looking at all the recent mergers & acquisitions activity within the broadcast sector could be forgiven for likening it to London’s Number 37 Bus in that you wait ages for one to arrive and then, suddenly, three buses arrive at the same time! So what does all this consolidation mean ...

Posted: Thursday, April 03, 2014
As we prepare for our annual pilgrimage to the Nevada desert in search of enlightenment, something troubles me this year. Over the years, NAB has grown to the point where there is an absolute clamor and a cacophony of noise as NAB opens and companies unveil their latest Carlos Fandango system so...
