CII CEOs Round Table On Broadcast TRP Guidelines to Establish Transparency: Mr Manish Tewari The campaign for Phase III and Phase IV would have to focus on improved quality of viewing and related qualitative benefits accruing to the consumer Voices from the CII CEOs Roundtable on Broadcast The digitization process during Phase-III and IV would have to focus on the interest of the consumers in order to ensure that they were partners in the process rather than adversaries. For this purpose, the industry would have to run a focused consumer awareness campaign, whereby the consumer would have to be sensitized about the benefits accruing from this process. Mr Manish Tewari Minister for Information & Broadcasting (Independent Charge), Government of India Indian consumers are not used to paying for quality services like digital cable, but that must change. The industry is going through a transition phase and it is important for all the stakeholders to resolve their differences amicably for the betterment of the industry. The industry has to find its answers for all the issues that exist today. Dr Rahul Khullar Chairman, TRAI The requirement for set-top-boxes for digitization in phase III and phase IV is estimated to be 14 crore. There is an immense opportunity for the Indian indigenous industry. Why do we need to import set-top-boxes from Taiwan, China, South Korea and other countries(?). We should undertake this exercise in-house. We have initiated dialogue with MSME department to indigenise. This will open up huge employment for local population. We want to resolve this before moving to phase III and phase IV. Mr Bimal Julka Secretary, Ministry of Information & Broadcasting S peaking at the 5th CII CEO’s Roundtable on Broadcast , Mr Manish Tewari, Minister for Information Information & Broadcasting, said in Phase I and II, the consumer was told that if he doesn’t buy a set-top box, his TV signal would be switched off but it would not work in the next phases. phases. For digitization to succeed, the industry would have to make efforts to ensure that the consumer was an integral component in the digitization value chain. At the same time, the comprehensive approach would also ensure the emergence of viable business model for the industry . “It was my way or the highway It may have worked in Phase I and . Phase II but it is not going to work in Phase III and IV Mr Tewari ,” said. He said he had told I&B Ministry officials that in Phase III and IV they “have to convince the consumer that digitization is in his interest rather than running those advertisements which say if by 31st October you don’t buy a box, your television screen will be blanked out”. On the issue of Television Rating Points (TRPs) the Minister said that this initiative was an attempt to make the process transparent, credible and accountable. At the same time, the endeavor was to address aberrations in the existing rating system. The Minister added that this initiative was based on the past recommendations of the Standing Committee, TRAI, and Dr. Amit Mitra Committee. The Government had also been approached in the past by the industry stakeholders to rectify the existing flaws. The long term objective was an attempt to usher a system with defined rules within an existing framework. Mr Bimal Julka, Secretary Ministry of Information & Broadcasting , and Dr Rahul Khullar, Chairman, TRAI addressed the broadcast CEOs. The roundtable was attended, among others, by top broadcasters, MSOs, DTH operators among others. The tone for the meet was set by Sudhanshu Vats, CEO Viacom18 Group, Uday Shankar, CEO Star India in their initial remarks. Elaborating further, Mr Tewari stated that the campaign for Phase III and Phase IV would have to focus on improved quality of viewing and related qualitative benefits accruing to the consumer as a result of the implementation process. The learnings of the implementation during Phase-I and Phase-II would also have to be taken into account while outlining the implementation roadmap for the remaining 4 On the issue of monopolies in the Cable TV sector, Mr Tewari said that regulator had already made its recommendation and the issues involved were being examined by the Inter Ministerial Committee (IMC). The Minister also mentioned that for the broadcasting sector to grow the regulatory framework ought to be stable and transparent for all stakeholders. This would ensure orderly growth for the sector in the long run. I wanted to emphasize here that media and entertainment is a consumer focused industry. It is market dynamics that should be allowed to play -- for example in pricing. You cannot cap costs and assume that consumers will thrive. Transparency, clarity, consistency, freedom and foresight are very important for M&E sector. In recent times, a lot of deliberations are data based and that is good news. The quicker we bring clarity, the faster we build wings to this industry. In any industry for consumers to flourish, there should be consistence. Sudhanshu Vats CEO, Viacom 18 Group Digitization was probably the most fundamental intervention that the government and regulator made towards transforming the landscape of the media and content industry in this country. However, the transformation in business practices is yet to happen. It is not fully complete. Cable digitization in Phase I and Phase II have gone well. In phase III and IV the scale of the digitization task is far more complex. We need to address and solve the problems. Almost 90 per cent of the broadcasting sector in India was built in the last ten years. Like other sectors, Broadcasting is seeing problems -- there is some stagnation. There is resilience in the Indian market. The Prime Minister has advocated a free market, free entrepreneurship and free media in the country. These three things will take India to where we all want it to be. Uday Shankar CEO, Star India Pankaj Pachauri Communications Advisor in the Prime Minister’s Office We let the regulation decide the digitization agenda instead of the consumers or stakeholders. We never took it as a business model. We took it as a regulatory decision. It is not about digitization. It is about addressable digitization.

Glamour, Glitz, Networking & Biz deals Canne Film Festival and Market is a harvest feast for the new crop of auteur films from five continents. Email:neetu.sikka@cii.in for participation at Cannes Film Market 2014 at Palais (May 14 – 23) G et the best out of Cannes. For twelve days only hours pass by No . one counts the date at Cannes, which is a global breeding ground for independent cinema sector-- small and medium size production, sales and distribution companies. This sector turns out movies which are lower in star power, thinner on formula, richer on character and mood. The independent films are a lot cheaper to make and represent the majority of the competition films that are selected at Cannes. Film Screenings: Cannes Film Festival has an opening and a closing movie. Nineteen movies are selected in the competition section. The other slots in the festival include Un Certain Regard, feature films out of competition, midnight screenings, special screenings, Cannes Classics, Short films in competition, and Cine foundation. Over 100 films selected from various sections are screened from 9 am to midnight during the festival period. Instant Worldwide Attention: A world premiere at Cannes is an elegant and high profile way of kicking off a picture’s global release. The stars get to walk to the red carpet, lending a film a cinematic pedigree-- that it may or may not deserve and ensure instant global coverage on TV networks. It is a decent marketing boost to an established brand. The festival, its name, logo and location (French Riveria across the beach) enjoy instant world wide attention. The festival is an annual tribute for international films, where all styles, schools and genres have their place, and whose enduring goal is to serve the growth of cinema, whether it be through the screening of films or the many cultural and artistic activities that enrich the event: symposiums, tributes, Master class, concerts, exhibitions, etc. 8 Cannes Film Market It is the biggest film market in the world. The aim of the market is to make a difference in the interconnected economy of film financing, marketing and distribution. The film business is increasingly dependent on the global market place to deliver significant return on investment. Market Screenings: Cannes is the only festival in the world, where outside the much published selections (competition movies selected by the Jury), more than 300 movies compete for buyers’ chequebooks in the market screenings, packed into a mere 12 days. Producers Network: The Producers Network pools together 550 producers from over 50 countries. Daily breakfasts during the market enable film professionals to meet personalities of film industry share , expertise of production and increase the knowledge of international financing and packaging. Outside the Market: Established entertainment brands set up shops in five-star-hotels such as Carlton, Marriot... to buy sell, finance and , get distribution deals for their products. Exhibitors: Over a thousand exhibitors congregate at Palais and Riviera exhibition space to market films, services, technology distri, bution and financing.
