New Initiatives, Redesigns for TWICE

NEW YORK, NY (February 11, 2014) — The 2014 International CES® successfully showcased the all-new Official CES Daily, published by TWICE (This Week in Consumer Electronics), the leading business publication serving the consumer electronics industry. While the content continued to be produced by the most-respected editorial team in the industry, everything else was changed — a more portable size, an updated design, and new sections and product focuses.

The change was well received and met positively by attendees. Aside from the terrific feedback, demand for the issues exceeded expectations. In addition to the on-site copies, TWICE, published by NewBay Media, delivered more than 200,000 digital copies via email over the four days.

Also getting redesigned is TWICE.com — the online destination for news and analysis for the consumer electronics industry. Debuting in March, TWICE.com, which hosted an average of 135,000 visitors each month from July through December last year, will have a clean, modern look, enhanced functionality, and an improved video hub. The site is being designed to be fully responsive so it will look great and function properly across all mobile devices — including smartphones and tablets.

“Our goal has always been to serve this dynamic industry in the best ways possible,” states Adam Goldstein, EVP/Group Publishing Director, NewBay Media. “We are constantly looking for ways to evolve our existing products and introduce new ones that will lead to greater success for our readers and marketing partners. The Official CES Daily and TWICE.com redesigns are clear examples of that, as are the new offerings we are producing throughout 2014.”

One of those new offerings is TWICE@Home, a twice-yearly special supplement devoted to the growing world of smart home technology innovations and the internet of things. These supplements will cover everything from home automation and security to smart appliances to alternative home categories for retailers such as furniture, mattresses, and outdoor living space. Many products being introduced will be available at retail, and TWICE, as the prominent authority on the CE retail industry, will lend its perspective and analysis to this rapidly evolving category.

Another new offering is the TWICE Retail Guide to Outdoors, which is a special supplement that will capture the highly engaged outdoor enthusiast market and will feature products such as on-the-go action cameras, outdoor TVs and speakers, and so on.

The brand has also been busy producing events that bring key industry players together. Last fall, TWICE partnered with the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® and introduced the UltraHD conference, sponsored by LG and Sony, in advance of CES Unveiled NY. At the 2014 CES, TWICE partnered with Cosmopolitan, the largest female brand in the world, for a conference track titled, “Digital Diva’s — Marketing Consumer Electronics to Millennial Women,” sponsored by Voxx and Ingram Micro. Upcoming events include a second UltraHD conference, a TWICE@Home event, and a summit concerning wireless and wearable technologies.

“Consumer electronics is always changing, making it an exciting — and challenging — industry to be in,” states Ed Hecht, VP/Publisher, TWICE. “By adding to our already robust print, digital, and event offerings with targeted topics and helpful analysis, we can give retailers, distributors, and marketers the tools they need to stay ahead of the trends and remain competitive.”

Late last year, TWICE went international with the launch of TWICE Europe, an email newsletter that delivers vital information and news relevant to the consumer electronics market in Europe, with circulation to — and content that includes — manufacturers, retailers, suppliers, and distributors. Published twice weekly, it rounds up the ten most important stories from around the web and provides editorial insights along with links for more information.

Also launched last year, TWICE’s CE Newswire newsletter, with over 20,000 opted-in subscribers, continues to be an industry must read. This newsletter combs the web on a daily basis and curates the most important news for the CE industry — and provides TWICE’s unique editorial perspective on the top stories.

TWICE has also begun working deeply with the NewBay Plus Marketing Services division to offer custom content, native advertising, and lead nurturing programs to marketers.

Industry Gathers at First Annual NYC Television Week

NEW YORK, NY (November 6, 2013) — The first NYC Television Week, presented by Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News, Next TV, and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), drew more than 1500 television industry executives to the Waldorf Astoria and the Metropolitan Pavilion from October 28–30. NYC Television Week comprised conferences, events, and an exhibition — including the “State of Television,” Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame, the two-day “TV Summit,” “TV on Wall Street,” and the Solutions Center exhibit floor, presented by NAB Show — bringing them to the heart of Manhattan. Sony was the Founding Sponsor.

NYC Television Week’s conferences featured 87 industry leaders as keynotes and presenters, including Mike White, President, Chairman and CEO, DIRECTV; David J. Stern, Commissioner, National Basketball Association; Stephanie McMahon, Executive Vice President, Creative, WWE; and Deb Roy, Chief Media Scientist, Twitter, to name a few.

“The incredible line-up of speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors is a good indication of how the television industry needed a place to get together after the start of the fall season to discuss the status quo and the direction in which we are headed,” states Louis Hillelson, EVP/Group Publisher, Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News. “I am happy that we and NAB were able to provide the platform for these high-level discussions.”

“Given the transformative state of the industry, NYC Television Week could not have been more timely and relevant, providing valuable takeaways for attendees,” says Chris Brown, NAB Executive Vice President, Conventions and Business Operations. “‘We had a very strong ‘TV on Wall Street’ program that was an immediate hit, and the Solutions Center featured a provocative mix of innovative products and services for the industry. We look forward to building on this event going forward as we continue to extend the NAB and NAB Show brands.”

NYC Television Week opened Monday morning, October 28, at the Waldorf Astoria with the “State of Television” conference, featuring in-depth discussions about various areas of the television industry, including cable, sports, advertising, and new technologies. That evening, the industry was celebrated at the 23rd annual Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame, hosted by Lesley Stahl, CBS News correspondent, 60 Minutes, and Meredith Vieira, NBC News special correspondent and host, The Meredith Vieira Show.

On Tuesday, October 29, NYC Television Week took over the Metropolitan Pavilion with “TV Summit Day 1,” “TV on Wall Street,” and the Solutions Center exhibition. “TV Summit Day 1” covered a wide range of topics, such as indie production, syndication in the digital age, showrunning, and the state of network television. “TV on Wall Street” examined how content competition and consumer consumption trends are driving the evolution of television and featured chief executives, venture capitalists, and leading financial analysts sharing their views of the TV industry.

Tuesday concluded with a cocktail reception sponsored by National Geographic Channels.

NYC Television Week wrapped up on Wednesday, October 30, with a second day of both “TV Summit” and the Solutions Center exhibit floor. “TV Summit Day 2” featured discussions on ad buying, 4K, new platforms, and content distribution.

Solutions Center exhibitors included Sony, placemedia, Dolby Laboratories, and Verizon Digital Media Services, among many others.

Marty Garrison of NPR To Receive Radio World Excellence In Engineering Award

ALEXANDRIA, VA (November 6, 2013) — NPR’s Marty Garrison will receive the 2013 Radio World Excellence in Engineering Award from the editors of Radio World, the newspaper for radio managers and engineers. The announcement was made by U.S. Editor in Chief Paul J. McLane. Recipients represent the highest ideals of the U.S. radio broadcast engineering profession and reflect those ideals through contributions to the industry.

Garrison is Vice President of Technology Operations, Distribution and Broadcast Engineering for NPR. “Marty heads the technical team that ensures that NPR programming gets on the air and is distributed nationally and globally,” McLane says. His staff also oversees distribution of public radio programming in the United States via NPR Satellite Services and is responsible for NPR’s own extensive back-office systems. With approximately 200 employees, the department is the second largest at NPR after its news staff.

Garrison supervised the move of NPR’s technical operations this year to the organization’s new headquarters in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington, D.C., including its new 55,000-square-foot newsroom, new studios and technology and distribution centers that support iconic programs such as “All Things Considered” and “Morning Edition.”

“Marty and his people were responsible for facilitating one of the highest-profile radio build-outs in North America,” McLane continues. “The project demanded meticulous coordination, a vast amount of detail work and a move that had to be planned down to the minute, even the second. By all accounts it was a successful transition, and the job even was completed earlier than originally anticipated, creating a showcase in the nation’s capital for the best that public radio has to offer.”

“Marty’s leadership was critical to achieving the rare result of delivering a project of this magnitude and complexity ahead of schedule and under budget, and to the satisfaction of all constituencies,” says Joyce Slocum, NPR’s Chief Administrative Officer. “From production studios for our programming, to computers and telephones for our support staff, to the satellite system for distribution to public radio stations, Marty’s teams worked together to ensure that everything functioned smoothly from the first moment.”

It was not Garrison’s first technical project involving aggressive timeframes and large capital budgets. He is former Senior Vice President of Global Technical Operations for Turner Broadcasting System and has held technical management leadership positions with Thomson Reuters, British Petroleum and other companies. Radio World also cited his exceptional IT experience and strong management record. “His career exemplifies the evolving skills needed to lead media technology organizations,” McLane says. “Like radio itself, Marty’s career merges traditional radio and audio considerations with new media platforms, data networks and IT infrastructure.”

Garrison is the second NPR recipient of the award; Michael Starling, currently executive director of NPR’s Technology Research Center and NPR Labs, received it in 2005. Last year’s recipient was Paul Brenner of Emmis Communications.

TWICE is excited to extend its brand into Europe,” said Ed Hecht, publisher and VP of TWICE at NewBay Media. “With many manufacturers competing in a global market, it is important for TWICE to assume a leadership position in delivering a perspective on consumer electronics news around the world.”

Mix Re-Launches the Mix Master Directory

NEW YORK, NY (October 29, 2013) — NewBay Media, publisher of Mix, has announced the re-launch of the Mix Master Directory as an online research source for the pro audio industry. The Directory features thousands of listings of business services and production facilities in the professional audio industry — the most comprehensive resource of its kind in the world. The Mix Master Directory can be accessed at http://directory.mixonline.com/.

The re-launched Mix Master Directory provides in-depth information in the following categories:
Production: Recording Studios; Sound Reinforcement Companies; Audio Post-Production Facilities; Schools; etc.
Business Services: Pro Audio Equipment Retailers; Record Labels; Studio Designers; and others
Manufacturers: Mixing Consoles; Digital Audio Workstations; Plug-Ins; Sound Libraries; Signal Processors; Software Instruments; Recorders; and much more

The Mix Master Directory was founded as a directory of recording studios in Northern California in 1977, along with the first issue of Mix magazine. From there, it appeared in every issue of Mix as a published regional section, with an annual directory published each year, until 2008.

Now, thanks to customer demand, the Mix Master Directory has been re-launched as a comprehensive, easy-to-use website.

“We are very excited to reboot the online version of the Mix Master Directory,” says Mix editor Tom Kenny. “Mix was founded as a directory of recording studios back in 1977, and over the past 35-plus years, we’ve worked hard to develop a directory-based network so that professionals can find audio services, whether they are in Dallas, Tulsa, Boston, Tallahassee, Los Angeles, or Spokane. The audio industry is larger than what you find on the coasts. Audio professionals can be found in every town in North America, and the Mix Master Directory provides that link.”

“It is our privilege to provide this valuable business tool to the pro audio industry,” adds Adam Goldstein, EVP/Group Publishing Director, NewBay Media. “I encourage all manufacturers and service providers to take advantage of this resource — both to find businesses to work with, and to make sure that their own listings are complete and up-to-date so they can be found by others.”

Listings in the Mix Master Directory are free, but there are low-cost options to creating enhanced listings that will attract the eyes of potential buyers.

For more information on enhanced listings, contact Doug Ausejo, Specialty Sales Associate, 650-238-0298, dausejo@nbmedia.com.

NewBay Media and Outsell Launch Outsell TV

NEW YORK, NY (October 28, 2013) — NewBay Media, publisher of Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News, and Next TV, and Outsell, Inc., the world’s only research and advisory firm focused solely on media, information, and technology, have partnered to create Outsell TV — exclusive, invitation-only executive councils that connect television industry experts to a community of their peers. These councils offer a confidential, peer-to-peer advisory group designed exclusively for CEOs, COOs, Presidents, and division heads.

“We are pleased to join Outsell to bring this dynamic concept to C-level professionals throughout the TV industry,” states Steve Palm, CEO, NewBay Media. “The expertise that both partners bring in terms of market knowledge, analytical and data capabilities, council development, and networking will allow Outsell TV to serve the market in a deep, meaningful, and unusual way.”

Each invitation-only Outsell TV council will be made up of a maximum of 20 executives from various areas of the television industry. Councils are handpicked by previous council members and Outsell TV staff and are comprised of executives from different market segments who are not direct competitors, but who face similar concerns and are innovators and change agents in the industry. Within the safety of the council, members can discuss and debate issues crucial to their success and share case studies and best practices.

Additionally, a top Outsell TV executive facilitates the council and stays in touch with members throughout the year. Outsell TV members also have access to Outsell TV research and lead analysts for confidential decision support.

“Our new Outsell TV membership service puts us at the epicenter of the broadcast industry during a time of unprecedented change,” says Anthea Stratigos, Co-founder and CEO of Outsell.  “This exclusive peer-to-peer community of executives from the highest levels across the TV industry, augmented by our fact-based research and analysis, will help shape the future of broadcast and provide leaders with critical guidance as they position their companies for growth and success in the years ahead.”

“As an Outsell council member myself, I can attest to the impact of a personal peer group,” adds Palm. “My business data and information council has provided me invaluable insights that I could not have gained anywhere else. There is no substitute for peer-level advice from leaders who are experiencing similar challenges as you, but from different perspectives. I am anxious to see what solutions and innovations the Outsell TV councils create.”

In addition to Wainhouse, AV Technology and EDUwire presentations, the Summit will feature Google’s Education team, WCET, GCI SchoolAccess, and the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration.

According to Margot Douaihy, “Our panelists delve into the role technology plays in education. They explore whether the rush to embrace technology can distract institutions from solving real-world problems, such as dealing with spiraling tuition increases and meeting the expectations of a new generation of learners.”
