Digitalization has positioned data in the center of the audiovisual media ecosystem.

A better control of content combined with a better understanding of the audience already enables to back up editorial decisions. It opens opportunities to offer more relevant content and more personalized experiences adapted to multi-device and contextual environment.

For publishers, how to efficiently leverage data has turned into a strategic question and became a new key to power its editorial, marketing and sales activities.

Facebook : ses API médias passent la seconde | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Facebook lance une nouvelle version de ses API à destination des médias, en particulier les chaînes de télévision afin de se relancer dans la bataille de la "Social TV" face à Twitter, qui a pris une bonne longueur d’avance.

Le programme Public Content Solutions de Facebook ouvre à un nombre restreint de partenaires revendeurs (dont MassRelevance/Spredfast, Livefyre, Never.no ou Monterosa) l’accès à de précieuses informations sur les sujets les plus cités, "likés"ou partagés chez ses utilisateurs.

Quel responsable de rédaction n’a jamais rêvé de connaître les sujets qui suscitent le plus d’intérêt à l’échelle d’un pays ?

C’est désormais chose possible pour une poignée d’heureux élus dont CNN et NBC qui utilisent déjà quotidiennement à l’antenne ces « what’s trending right now ». L’expression "média social" prenant plus de sens que jamais.

Online Video Advertising Is Growing Many Times Faster Than TV, Search, And Most Other Digital Ad Markets | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Online video is growing faster than most other advertising formats and mediums.


  • Video ad revenue will increase at a three-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.5% through 2016, according to our estimates. 
  • That's faster than any other medium other than mobile. And much faster than traditional online display advertising, which will only grow at a 3% annual rate.

2014 FIFA World Cup Second Screen Apps Capture Global Audiences

2014 FIFA World Cup Second Screen Apps Capture Global Audiences | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Few would have predicted the match results following thirty-two games into the 2014 World Cup, but many had predicted the remarkable second screen activity during broadcasts of the competition.

The opening rounds have been noteworthy for on-pitch activity, but also for the on-screen activity of millions of smartphone, tablet and connected app viewers around the world.

During some qualification matches, more than 400,000 dual-screeners were sync’ed to global telecasts, and connected with supplementary content provided by app developers and app users.

Fans are able to make live predictions, rate player actions, share top moments and personal passions, post photos and videos, react to opinions on match topics ('That yellow card was not deserved!' 'Those aren't teeth, they're special implants!') and tweeting from the inside the applications.


Visiware is another leading provider of second-screen solutions, and its recently launched Sync2Ad platform uses a synchronized mobile ad-unit that plays in real-time with TV spots, as developers continue to explore ways that the second screen brings together audiences, advertisers and content in a unique interactive media experience.

Dedicated apps for the event, such as Televisa’s Deportes, ESPNSync, and L’Equipe Connect, are powered by Visiware's Sync2TV platform.

Sync2TV powers interactive engagement for its clients World Cup 2014 matches on iOS devices, Android devices, and on the Web, providing live game stats, gamification, social buzz, and video commentary.

“The World Cup 2014 has shown even greater uptake for second screen activity than we thought. The second screen has become a key component of sports and entertainment consumption,” said Laurant Weill, founder and executive chairman of Visiware. “Users are now telling us that they will no longer see a game without a second-screen application.”

Programmers Are Frustrated by a Lack of Netflix Metrics

Programmers Are Frustrated by a Lack of Netflix Metrics | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
When Breaking Bad scored three Emmy wins last fall, its showrunner, Vince Gilligan, credited Netflix for his show’s longevity and for heightening its popularity. Similarly, program execs in general have been thrilled with how streaming video services have made up for lost DVD revenue. But a little bloom is off the rose.


“The places we have to go to find [usage data for Netflix] are either private research companies that field panels, which you pay a lot of money to maintain, or we can do surveys. But surveys are notoriously unreliable,” said one network executive. That person notes that some Netflix rivals, like Hulu (which is owned by programmers and therefore more transparent) and iTunes (which is a pay-to-play model) aren’t as problematic.

Big data et panels : de nouveaux modèles pour Médiamétrie, de nouvelles opportunités pour les médias

Big data et panels : de nouveaux modèles pour Médiamétrie, de nouvelles opportunités pour les médias | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Pas un jour ne passe, sur le Web, sans qu’il soit fait mention de la révolution que constitue l’accès aux «Big Data». Grâce au numérique, on dispose de volumes de données considérables, qu’il faut savoir stocker et traiter.

Quel est l’impact de ce changement de paradigme pour l’industrie de la publicité, du marketing, des médias et des études ? Les modèles d’analyse et de prévision sont-ils vraiment bouleversés ? Lorsque l’on se penche sur la réalité de ce changement technologique, comme a permis de le faire le séminaire organisé par l’IREP le 30 mai 2013, on nuance quelque peu l’ampleur de cette révolution. La seule question qui vaille, comme le signale Philippe Tassi, Directeur Général Adjoint de Médiamétrie et membre du Conseil scientifique de l’IREP, n’est-elle pas de savoir si, ou plutôt à quelles conditions, « bigger » signifie véritablement « better » ?

Le changement de paradigme de la donnée

L’accès à des données exhaustives sur un objet d’étude particulier n’est pas en soi une nouveauté. C’était même la règle qui prévalait jusqu’à la fin du XIXe siècle. Ce n’est qu’en 1895 que, le premier, Anders N. Kiaer, directeur de la Statistique du royaume de Norvège, expose les avantages de l’échantillonnage sur le recensement, à partir du cas de son pays, et en 1925 que la Commission Jensen confirme officiellement le bien-fondé et l’efficacité de cette approche. En 1936, George Gallup, élève du grand théoricien des sondages qu’est Jerzy Neyman, prévoit l’élection de Roosevelt à partir d’un échantillon de 3 000 personnes, à l’encontre de la méthode artisanale dite des « votes de paille ». Par le gain de temps et d’argent qu’il permet, l’échantillonnage s’impose alors comme la méthode de référence statistique du XXe siècle dans tous les domaines d’application.

À la fin du XXe siècle, grâce au numérique, on dispose de bases de données dont la volumétrie était jusque-là inimaginable. Les « Big Data » se présentent ainsi comme un retour possible à une forme d’exhaustivité. Non seulement l’étendue des données recueillies est considérable, mais leur fréquence peut aller jusqu’au temps réel. On observe tout et tout le temps. Les « Big Data » tirent leur intérêt, et la difficulté de leur traitement, de la capacité du numérique à fournir de gros volumes de données en instantané.

Des données enrichies

Il est aujourd’hui possible de connaître, par exemple, le nombre exact de visites d’un site, à chaque instant. Ces données, qui relèvent des « Big Data », ne peuvent néanmoins pas se substituer aux mesures par échantillonnage. Les informations fournies sont différentes, elles se complètent et se précisent l’une l’autre. Les panels apportent des indications très précieuses sur les individus et leurs comportements. Les « Big Data » offrent, quant à elles, des volumes d’informations considérables mais non structurées. Pour la mesure d’audience, réussir à traiter les « Big Data », c’est trouver le modèle qui permette de combiner ces deux types d’informations, pour fournir une mesure plus riche et plus précise.

Médiamétrie a ainsi mis en place de nouvelles mesures, pour l’Internet mobile et pour l’audience d’Internet fixe, tenant compte des apports de l’échantillonnage comme de l’exhaustivité. L’accès aux services Internet via le téléphone mobile prend appui sur l’exploitation des fichiers de logs des opérateurs. Ces données sont qualifiées par le suivi d’un panel de 10 000 personnes pour en enrichir l’analyse. Pour l’Internet fixe, l’approche choisie est celle dite « Panel-up » : c’est l’échantillonnage qui est le socle de la mesure. L’information exhaustive apportée par les « Big Data » est considérée comme une variable auxiliaire, qui permet d’améliorer l’étude. La mesure hybride de type panel-up est, depuis septembre 2012, la référence pour l’Internet fixe en France.

The Impact of Binge-Viewing [pdf] Interesting study of Annalec

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  •  Binge-viewing is not an atypical behavior – two-thirds (63%) of all TV viewers binge-view frequently, and mostly during prime time
  •  Despite the assumption that binge-viewing primarily occurs through video streaming, bingeing is almost equally split between streaming services (50%) and broadcast/cable TV (43%); platform preference is indicative of one’s generational TV viewing habits

 As bingeing becomes even more widespread, there will surely be impact on video content consumption
via streaming services, as well as through broadcast/cable networks

  •  Binge-viewing leads to program discovery, bringing TV viewers back to real-time TV watching after they have caught up with all episodes (e.g., ‘Breaking Bad’ success)
  •  Despite a conventional wisdom that binge-viewers are avoiding ads, they are not only tolerant of ads, but are even more receptive to them compared to non-bingers

 Binge-viewers are twice as likely than non-bingers to see and share ads on social media, as well as talk about ads with friends and family – marketers could leverage binge-viewers’ engagement with ads and look for cross-marketing opportunities and branded integration efforts with the most popular programs

  •  Binge-viewing behaviors differ by gender – men binge-view by appointment, whereas women are more impulsive, and binge-view because of a need for instant gratification
  •  There is no shame in bingeing – nearly three-quarters of binge-viewers do not feel guilty about their binge-viewing experience, even though they are aware of some negativity that comes with 
  • it, especially as recognized by men

 Binge-viewers enjoy watching TV this way, and plan to continue doing so in the future

Predictive Modeling is Changing the Way We Work and Live | SmartData Collective

Predictive Modeling is Changing the Way We Work and Live | SmartData Collective | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
Thanks to ongoing advances in computing and warehousing technologies, big data keeps getting bigger and advanced analytics such as predictive modeling make it ever more useful. The proliferation of smart devices, cloud computing and SaaS applications, both in our personal lives and the workplace, gives us the ability to know more about human behaviors and practices than ever before.


Conclusions

Fueled by an ever-increasing volume of big data, predictive modeling is being used to improve everything around us from the way we shop to the entertainment we enjoy, and the way we receive health care. The more we know about the past and present, the better we're able to predict the future to serve others, making faster and better informed decisions capable of reducing costs and increasing customer satisfaction.

Predictive modeling's deep dive into big data is reaping amazing insights into the way we live, work and play. These insights are leading to innovations and first-in-market opportunities that not only serve corporate interest, but our general condition, responding faster and more cost effectively to customer and constituent needs.

Understanding the power of Hadoop as a Service — Gigaom Research

Understanding the power of Hadoop as a Service — Gigaom Research | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Across a wide range of industries from health care and financial services to manufacturing and retail, companies are realizing the value of analyzing data with Hadoop. With access to a Hadoop cluster, organizations are able to collect, analyze, and act on data at a scale and price point that earlier data-analysis solutions typically cannot match.

While some have the skill, the will, and the need to build, operate, and maintain large Hadoop clusters of their own, a growing number of Hadoop’s prospective users are choosing not to make sustained investments in developing an in-house capability. An almost bewildering range of hosted solutions is now available to them, all described in some quarters as Hadoop as a Service (HaaS). These range from relatively simple cloud-based Hadoop offerings by Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud providers including Amazon, Microsoft, and Rackspace through to highly customized solutions managed on an ongoing basis by service providers like CSC and CenturyLink. Startups such as Altiscale are completely focused on running Hadoop for their customers. As they do not need to worry about the impact on other applications, they are able to optimize hardware, software, and processes in order to get the best performance from Hadoop.

In this report we explore a number of the ways in which Hadoop can be deployed, and we discuss the choices to be made in selecting the best approach for meeting different sets of requirements.

Key findings include:

  • Hadoop is designed to perform at scale, and large Hadoop clusters behave differently from the small groups of machines developers typically use to learn.
  • There are a range of models for running a Hadoop cluster, from building in-house talent and infrastructure to adopting one of several Hadoop-as-a-Service solutions
  • Competing HaaS products bring different costs and benefits, making it important to understand your requirements and their strengths and weaknesses. Some offer an environment in which a customer can run — and manage — Hadoop while others take responsibility for ensuring that Hadoop is available, maintained, patched, scaled, and actively monitored.

Robin Good's curator insight, July 2, 1:35 PM



An excellent in-depth article by Kent Anderson analysing the key advantages and benefits of the subscription business model for news and content publishers of all kinds.


Key advantages of subscription model according to author:
 

  1. Integrity of relationship publisher - subscriber
     
  2. Greater privacy for subscribers
     
  3. Drives and rewards innovation


The article cites and points to many relevant examples and companies which utilize a subscription model and are successful at it.


"The subscription model is allowing music publishers to compete with iTunes. It is allowing Amazon and Target to compete with grocery stores. It is allowing the Washington Post to reimagine itself. It is allowing editors to make a living selecting the best from the rest. It is your cell phone, your wearable, your streaming service.


The subscription model isn’t a relic.


It just may be the hottest and best business model around."

Building an analytics culture in a newsroom: How NPR is trying to expand its digital thinking

Building an analytics culture in a newsroom: How NPR is trying to expand its digital thinking | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
A small team at NPR was given six weeks of development resources to build an analytics dashboard.


NPR already uses Google Analytics and Chartbeat to monitor its analytics. (Another part of the social media team’s work is to build small tools to make sharing easier; one of those is a bookmarklet to add Google Analytics tracking codes to the end of URLs.) While those off-the-shelf products are useful, Kramer and Bryan said they can be complicated to understand and don’t always provide the best information. Instead, they wanted to create a dashboard that allows NPR to use the data to inform their content decisions.

NPR doesn’t introduce any new form of measuring analytics with its dashboard; rather, it takes existing information and presents it in a way that’s more easily digestible. It clearly shows where a story’s traffic is coming from, how it’s being shared on social media and elsewhere, and whether readers are interacting with embedded audio or slideshows. The dashboard was designed to answer simple questions: How much attention is this story getting? How are people getting to this story? Who posted this story on social media?

The dashboard will be housed online and information from it will be sent out in a daily internal email, Kramer said.

The Havas Social Newsroom: monitoring, responding, creating | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
'Content' and 'storytelling' were the buzzwords at Cannes Lions, but Havas' content-creation engine is turning talk into action


Havas' Social Newsroom is a content-creation engine both monitoring and responding to what's been happening at Cannes Lions 2014 this week. With a team of data analysts, content strategists, community managers, creative technologists, production experts, designers, photographers and editors based there from early until late, it's proved a busy week for the team.

The idea behind the Social Newsroom reflects Havas Group's new "together" mantra and "Havas villages" framework, while the initiative itself started at agency Cake in London. "We called it Social Newsroom to show a spirit of collaboration. It's a neutral name and we want to engage the rest of the network," explains Mike Mathieson, Cake's CEO. "There should be a Social Newsroom in every major market. Seeing it live here this week makes a big difference in terms of people understanding what it's all about. But it's not just about reporting, it's about using your own tone of voice too."
