Mapping the TV playout and channel distribution market

The challenge

A royalties collecting organisation representing hundreds of content producers wanted a detailed understanding of how TV channels are originated and distributed internationally.

The solution

High Green Media conducted detailed analysis on the TV playout and channel distribution business, mapping nearly 600 channel brands, dozens of playout locations and 250 TV platforms. A sophisticated model was developed, enabling more than 25,000 delivery paths of channels across terrestrial, cable, IPTV and satellite systems and distribution via internet, satellite and fibre. The outputs of this model were used to secure a landmark European ruling, enabling rights holders to be fully compensated for the distribution of their work.
