International Panel for FICCI Conclave

Event: FICCI Media and Entertainment Business Conclave
Venue: Sheraton Park Hotel and Towers, Chennai, India
Date: Oct 17, 11.30 am

The Centre for Content Promotion (CCP), based in Singapore, will present a panel of specialists at the FICCI Media and Entertainment Business conclave (MEBC), Chennai on Oct 17.

The panel will discuss the ‘long-tail" of movies and the role of Technological Protection Measures (TPMs).

Movies make the majority of their financial returns during the initial months of their release. In the current context, theatrical releases are not the only return on investments for films, especially with the rise of Pay TV and other business models on platforms such as the Internet; IPTV, mobile, new media. Technology and its accompanying digital rights are central in enabling new business models that meet consumer needs. The session will explore the “long-tail” of movie distribution; the role of security that enables new delivery channels and TPMs that drive this phenomenon.

As a part of FICCI’s initiatives to facilitate business further in regions within India and with an aim to bring the rich potential of the Indian Entertainment Market to the forefront of the global media & entertainment industry, FICCI organizes MEBCs in various Indian cities.

Legendary actor, producer and film-maker Dr Kamal Haasan is the chairman of MEBC.

Dr Haasan has remarked, "I am very happy to be guiding FICCI’s first ever initiative of this kind and to be associated with FICCI. We hope to be of genuine and substantial benefit to the Southern entertainment industry and help in bringing international participation to the conclave and enriching its content in every possible way.’
