DTG SUMMIT 8th May 2024, King's Place, London


Tell us a little bit about Fincons Group

With over 2,600 resources worldwide and 40 years of experience, Fincons is an award-winning IT business consultancy and system integrator company with offices spread out across Europe and the US.

Fincons provides a broad range of ITC services and solutions to various vertical sectors. In the Media industry, the Group has long-term, successful relationships with Tier-1 clients, covering the entire Digital Supply Chain, from Rights Management, Programming, Data-driven production, Metadata management, Asset management, Advertising, Digital services, OTT, Hybrid/NextGen TV and DAI.

What’s the most exciting project coming up for Fincons?

Innovation is in Fincons’ DNA; the Group has been investing for several years in HbbTV technology and is now ready for HbbTV Targeted Advertising (TA).

Moreover, Fincons is a pioneer of DVB-I, having implemented the first running pilot with several use cases together with a major broadcaster, and is now preparing a national field-trial running on commercially available TV sets for the Italian market. On the basis of this pilot, we’ve already integrated a library of reusable components to enable key features for practical adoption of DVB-I, combined with HbbTV, such as: multicast ABR, DRM content protection and low latency optimization.

What are you most excited for at the DTG Summit 2023

We are pleased to take part in the DTG Summit 2023 with hot topics in our agenda such as new business models like Fast, new tech enablers like AI and their emerging applications, as well as the ongoing cloud transformation. It is an unparalleled opportunity for networking and vision sharing, for discovering emerging needs, available solutions and roadmaps, as well as listening to a fantastic line-up of speakers.

What does The Bigger Picture look like for Fincons

The real challenge for Broadcasters during the upcoming years will be to lead a cross-channel proposition enhanced by NextGen TV, and to adapt to the transformation of TV. To be successful it is important to guarantee full monetization of content rights across multiple business models, channels and platforms. It is also essential to anticipate Hybrid TV innovation, pioneering DVB-I, HbbTV/DVB-TA, ATSC 3.0, and to carefully optimize the new supply chain as well as to manage a smooth migration to cloud.

What is the biggest issue you think we can address together through cross-industry collaboration? 

The successful deployment of innovation like HbbTV TA and DVB-I requires solid and rapid implementation. We are keen to contribute to pioneering initiatives driven by DTG members, in particular those concerning HbbTV TA and DVB-I. We would be glad to make our implementation experience and skill, as well as our software libraries, available to all the DTG community, effectively accelerating pilots and trial initiatives as well as in-production services.
