  • Is Netflix is proving that one stream can rule them all? - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    and preferences of your subscribers How do you use this data NH We have 150 million hours of viewing every day and 300 million to 400 million events where people decide to start viewing or stop viewing So we re able to know what people like and how much of it they watch We re able to aggregate that together The kinds of things we do with that data are to sort it into abstract classifications or groupings of content These will tell us that we have a lot of content with one particular factor and a little bit with another factor That gives us the tools to know for a new show who s going to watch it and how much of it they re going to watch Also it lets us know how much alternative content those same people have to view instead And that s the raw data we give to the buying team to help them decide how much they re going to pay for a new show or how much they re going to pursue a particular piece of content EB Neil and his team can give us this data and it might tell us that we don t have as much stuff for say men over 50 So then we can go out and say let s go find someone who wants to create a show that might resonate there An interesting recent example is Ridiculous Six We made that bet because we re aware from the data that Adam Sandler resonates globally He has a worldwide audience who enjoys his type of comedy So that gives us the confidence to make a really big bet on it How do you record and evaluate such subscriber data NH We have more than just a binary piece of data We know how much you watch how quickly you watch the next episode whether you were present at the end of the episode and whether you interacted with the show such as rewinding or pausing or turning away And all of those things offer us potential signals about your level of engagement with the show And that gives us a lot of valuable data about whether you loved this show or whether another show was a bad choice Do programme and film makers try to get this information from you to know which part of a programme worked and which didn t NH There are certainly opportunities to see how the whole season was received But it tends not to be at the granularity of this scene or that shot or this piece of dialogue Some of that data is available but I don t think it s very actionable at all The director needs to tell a coherent story and if the director is steered by such tactical data I think you d end up destroying the creativity that goes into it So we try to keep the data at a high level We try to use it to tell which audience is going to be interested in which content and how to market it or how to target it towards our members And also how much to spend on marketing it Do you use the data for any other type of product development NH We have one day a year when my engineers get free reign to go and experiment on things We ve done some experiments with Fitbit Probably the most interest one was a Fitbit sensor that can tell when you ve finally binged too much and have fallen asleep And it stops the movie How much 4K ultra high definition content can we expect to see on Netflix soon NH We now have over two million accounts that connect to Netflix with a 4K device About 10pc of the hours viewed are available in 4K to those who have the right device Of the 150 million hours viewed every day 10pc of those would be in 4K if you had a 4K TV We re building most of our big budget new originals for 4K and HDR so they ll be mastered for delivery in those formats This will be a relatively small portion of our library initially But we expect it to grow just as 4K has grown over the last two years and now represents 10pc of our hours viewed HDR might grow even faster than that What s the relevance of high dynamic range HDR to Netflix content NH I honestly think that HDR is going to be a more important innovation than 4K At 4K we have kind of topped out in terms of resolution But we haven t applied the same development to pixels We re going from an 8 bit pixel to a 12 or 16 bit pixel which is much closer to the dynamic range that you see in real world scenes We re able to deliver HDR at 4K but also in HD and lower resolutions as well So the bit rate required the bandwidth of your internet required to see HDR picture at full HD is less than is required to deliver a 4K picture So it s not only a more important innovation perhaps in some sense it s also one that will be available to a bigger range of people who don t have the 20 megabits necessary to do both at onces When you re developing new shows does the move to phones and tablets for watching video play any part in the type of show you commission or even in how it s filmed Might you get into 10 minute shows EB It doesn t necessarily We re conscious that a lot of people watching are going to be people who are used to short form YouTube style content And there s going to be content for them as well But wouldn t get into short form content specifically no We think YouTube does a great job at

  • NI Water boss Sara Venning: As the chief executive, you're the decision maker and the buck stops totally with you - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    I have a good salary yes it s the salary that comes with the job I should be judged on what I do Is your water clean are your services improving and are you getting what we are promising and more It s undoubtedly a success story but it has been won through hard work and risk Along with Elaine Birchall of SHS Group Darina Armstrong of Progressive Building Society and others she s one of a handful of women leading our top 100 companies She s also one of the youngest But gender doesn t preoccupy her Right through engineering I have been in the minority and worked on the basis it s what I know and what I can do not whether I m male or female She joined NI Water after 14 years at NIE I have greater seniority now and that brings its own challenges and responsibilities I think as CEO you are the ultimate decision maker and ultimate person of accountability You re right at the top and the buck completely stops with you Most of the time through your career you look to one side and think we re all in this together or such as such has my back But when you re the boss there s just you That s a role you develop into as you grow through different roles You get more comfortable with leaving the pack behind as you start to lead She describes NI Water as asset intensive Those assets including 26 000 km of water mains bring large capital requirements What she wants is a medium term financial settlement with the Executive which will enable NI Water to plan ahead for capital investment and know how much funding it will be getting beyond planning only on a financial year basis In the wider UK government there are large capital programmes being run that can require more than one year budgeting programmes and it can be done I d like our Executive to put in place that medium term financial settlement It needs to be recognised that water and sewerage is a key part of infrastructure and making sure it s fit for purpose is crucial But there are competing priorities and as a service NI Water is silent You certainly don t wake up in the morning and think isn t that wonderful and so clean so plentiful It is naive to think that anyone wakes up and thinks that I know that I don t Businesses are charged for water but domestic customers aren t with that element of cost subsidised by the Department for Regional Development DRD She s determined to avoid pronouncing on the rights and wrongs of charging That s a decision that the Executive need to make For us I m focused on the outcome I just need the funding If you give me that I ll deliver efficiency services and the infrastructure Government has a choice on continuing to subsidise it

  • 'Leading First Trust has been one great opportunity to get the bank back on track after a very difficult time' - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    business loans in 2015 Demand is strong Our clients talking to them they are taking a feed from the modest growth in the Northern Ireland economy and taking big investment decisions that they weren t taking a few years ago he said And having had to deal with the ups and downs in the world of finance over the last 34 years he said the bank had done as much as we can in order to assist customers struggling with debt Having been in banking for 34 years I ve been through a number of economic cycles You need to really understand what your customers are going through so that the solutions you come up with are appropriate As a bank we have taken a very understanding line I d like to think we have done as much as we can to protect jobs keep families in their homes and that would be an ethos which would have served us well in this period of time First Trust has set up several funds and loan schemes to boost certain areas of business That includes a programme to help young farmers inherit their businesses from their parents and a green or environmentally friendly loan Asked whether there will be a day when the high street branch is a thing of the past Mr Moore said they had been written off as a distribution channel many times before always prematurely What we will see is the continued evolution of a branch model Where the market is getting to at the moment branches are more like sales and service centres to an extent he says But he doesn t shy away from talking about the rise and rise of bitcoin a cryptocurrency which doesn t relay on banks or traditional financial institutions He said it is feasible that one day it could take banks out of the equation altogether Is it feasible It absolutely is We sometimes joke that we could be making the best and most efficient bank in the world and find out that banking isn t the answer I think as an industry we need to be much more tuned in and actually collaborate with those people Looking at 2016 on the whole Mr Moore says the bank has examined whether customers are able to sustain an interest rates increase I think it s safe to say interest rates will rise modestly in 2016 in my blood I feel we ll have a modest increase I think the positives will outweigh we have seen wage increases for the first time over the last couple of years in Northern Ireland There s been an unexpected boost to disposable income because of reduced oil prices Mr Moore now splits his time between Belfast during the week before travelling to the picturesque backdrop of Galway at the weekend When not heading one of the big four banks here Mr Moore spends time with his wife Brenda and children Rachel 20 Andrew 18 a competitive swimmer who has represented Ireland and Owen 15 He also enjoys mountain biking and blockbuster movies But like others who don t follow their father s path his children have no aspirations to follow him into the banking world This time it s personal Q What s the best piece of business or life advice you ve ever been given A In one of my first roles one of my managers advised me to never look back on your life and regret the things you didn t try I still think of this For me the true test of a person s character is not how often they win but how often they get back up after losing Resilience is probably the characteristic that I most admire in people Q What piece of advice would you pass on to someone starting out in business A Work hard believe in yourself figure out your niche and go for it Fail often if necessary but learn from your mistakes Q What was your best business decision A Taking on my current role as head of First Trust Bank has undoubtedly been my best decision so far While it was challenging to lead the bank s turnaround through a difficult economic climate it s also provided fantastic opportunities and I ve never been in a more rewarding role Q If you weren t doing this job what would be your other career A I think if I wasn t in banking I d quite like to be a teacher Q What are your hobbies interests A I enjoy mountain biking spinning and trips to the cinema Q What is your favourite sport and team A Rugby and the Irish rugby team Q And have you ever played any sports A I played rugby tennis and squash all quite a long time ago I competed in some sprint triathlons during my mid life crisis thankfully a few years ago now and definitely not to be repeated Q What was your last holiday Where are you going next A The family spent two weeks in Bordeaux last summer and I am looking forward to a weekend in Lisbon next month with my wife Brenda Q If you enjoy reading can you recommend a book A With the demands on my time I do not get to read as often as I would like to but I am currently reading Legacy by James Kerr It goes deep into the mindset of the All Blacks and has some interesting thoughts on leadership and business Q How would you describe your early life A Happy and character building I grew up with my brother and sister in Wexford just down the east coast Q Have you any economic predictions A I see the Northern Ireland economy continuing to grow at a steady rate and I think the UK will remain in the EU In the run up to reduced corporation tax in April 2018 Northern Ireland will
