DQE’s distribution segment had returned negative figures of Rs (-1.86) crore for Q1-2014.

DQE CMD and CEO Chakravarti said, “The global entertainment industry is developing at an unprecedented pace. Mobility and portability of content will, in my opinion, have a profound impact as viewers consume  programming outside their homes and want to control what they watch, when they watch, and on what device. So many opportunities are evolving and we recognise that in so far as content production is important, even more vital will be the distribution technologies that are emerging.”

“Recognising and serving this need with regards to distribution technology, we have made substantial and focused progress in licensing and distribution of our Intellectual Properties not only for television broadcast, but other VOD (Video on Demand) and SVOD (Subscription Video on Demand) and OTT (Over the Top) platforms as well. Our flagship global property Jungle Book Series is on Netflix, Vudu and Hulu - the famous OTT platforms in the USA,” added Chakravarti.

 “New associations with leading networks and licensees globally are paving the way to monetise our IPs and co-produced content. New deals across our portfolio of properties in recent months are with best-in-class partners such as France Television, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel Productions, Sky Italia, Universal Music, Discovery Kids, Rai TV, Italy etc. The promotional deal for The Jungle Book with Burger King Worldwide has been immensely successful and will be extended for second promotion,” revealed Chakravarti.

 “We have successfully completed deliveries while new productions are in development. Our foray into theatrical production of ‘The Jungle Book’ is gathering momentum, and we hope to conclude announceable distribution deals in the near future. We remain confident that the global entertainment industry has excellent growth prospects, while our business remains well placed for projected growth in the current year,” concluded Chakravarti.
