Fincons Group to present innovative ATSC 3.0 standard TV interface software for Next Gen TV user experience, case studies and cutting-edge solutions

Los Angeles, February 2019 – Fincons Group, a leading IT business consultancy, will be exhibiting at the NAB Show 2019 for the 6th consecutive year. With demos and sessions showcasing some of its most original and successful innovation projects and over 35 years’ experience in media and broadcast, Fincons Group is proud to present its expertise and case studies alongside international partners and clients.

Michele Moretti, CEO Fincons Group, comments: “As part of our internationalization strategy we’ve expanded significantly over the last few years with new offices in London in the UK and on East and West coast of the USA- and this is just the starting point for us. Exhibiting at such a high-profile event, critically enables us to highlight our expertise and skills cementing our position in such a competitive market and give us the opportunity to showcase our achievements to a wide international audience.”

Francesco Moretti, Deputy CEO Fincons Group and CEO Fincons.US: “This is yet another exciting date in our busy calendar of engagements. Our early experience in the media sector and specifically developing HbbTV solutions in Europe ideally positions us to provide best practices examples and solutions to the USA market as the industry here begins its transition to the ATSC 3.0 standard. We are also extremely proud that our growing international client base will also be supporting us and look forward to presenting our pioneering investment in ATSC 3.0 innovation at this key industry event.”  

In a scenario of increasing disruption in Linear Broadcast and Pay TV paradigms, the convergence between OTT and Broadcast TV, known as Hybrid TV, is the arena where broadcasters will be competing for their share of audience with new engagement and interaction tools. Further to a series of successful launches of Hybrid TV solutions in Europe, Fincons Group took part in a project to develop a new TV Interface design for the ATSC 3.0 standard in association with the NAB. The interface design was released at CES 2019 this January, ahead of the software being showcased at the NAB show this year.

Greg Jarvis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Fincons.US, comments: “As part of our commitment to driving innovation and investing in the future of the industry, Fincons Group spent 2018 investing in technology to utilize ATSC 3.0 to its full potential. The NAB is the ideal occasion to launch our Next Gen TV interface software for ATSC 3.0 and for industry leaders to find out more by meeting the developers in person. In association with the NAB we have also produced a best practice guide for Hybrid TV.”

Drawing from its extensive experience in the broadcast and media sector, Fincons Group will present and take part in a series of panel sessions, debates and demos. On Monday April 8th at 4 PM, Greg will be discussing best practice in Next Gen TV user engagement during his Hybrid TV: Next Gen TV User Experience Converges OTT and Broadcast TV speech. Fincons Group will also be participating in the ‘How do we monetise the connected subscriber?’ panel discussion on Tuesday April 9th at noon. In this debate Oliver Botti, Head of International Business Development and Innovation, will explain how Fincons is helping clients manage subscribers, leverage ad-tech and ad-insertion to rise above the competition. At the Group’s booth (#SU9024CM), the team will showcase its most innovative success stories ranging from supporting The Associated Press in achieving their business transformation objectives, to the launch of Mediaset Play for Italy’s largest commercial broadcaster, Mediaset, and the development of the new RTÉ Player, a world-class live and on demand online TV and video platform for Ireland’s national public-service media organisation, RTÉ.

Amir Lavi, Head of International Sales Fincons Group, concludes: “I am thrilled to be attending this event, not only because it will be an opportunity to show the industry the exciting new developments we have been working on, but because it is a great opportunity to share ideas with other industry leaders. Market globalization, as well as increased competition and consolidation in the TV industry, has resulted in the need to reach audiences in a more targeted and personalized way. Fincons Group can leverage 35 years of expertise, as well as its proven track record in developing innovative tools and shaping business processes to contribute and add value to leading customers around the world.”
