AMSTERDAM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 13, 2018--FFalcon Technology, part of TCL Group, is co-releasing a new report with Statista entitled: ‘The Revenue and Business Opportunities for the Smart TV Ecosystem’ at IBC 2018, Amsterdam, 13 – 18 September.

The whitepaper provides a detailed overview of the need for developing future smart TV business models to meet changing consumer needs and demands, while setting out how technology trends are shaping the future of smart TVs and why collaboration will be key to smart TV success.

FFalcon’s CEO, Tony Guo, will be revealing more insights at IBC on Saturday 15 September in his presentation on “ Future Value of Smart TV Ecosystem -- 2018 Global Smart TV Industry Whitepaper ” at 14:15, alongside Eike Hartmann, Head of Research Projects, Statista.

Tony comments: “We want this report to be a wake-up call for smart TV businesses worldwide. With the rise of streaming media players, alongside new brands, all creating competition for those already established in the smart TV market, the growing popularity of the smart home is just one example of innovation that many may have taken for granted so far. Our report aims to educate smart TV businesses about how to integrate their offerings into the smart home, to ensure they grab their own share of voice in this growing marketplace.”

To build a better, more integrated industrial capability, FFalcon attracted CNY450 million (equivalent to GBP51 million or USD66 million) investment from technology giant Tencent in 2017, which saw Tencent pre-load its entertainment content onto FFalcon’s internet-connected smart TVs, that also feature voice control and customized search recommendations.
