Highly Publicized Oculus VR Setbacks Are Not a Cause for Alarm

1Q 2017 | IN-4448

Two pieces of news seemed somewhat tough for Oculus and parent Facebook. First, a Dallas jury awarded ZeniMax US$500 million—the plaintiff asserted the defendant (Facebook/Oculus) stole propriety technology and violated an NDA. While the award was considerably lower than the US$4 billion ZeniMax originally sought, it effectively raises the purchase price of the VR innovator (assuming Facebook is not successful with its appeals). During the trial, Facebook also disclosed the purchase price of Facebook was actually closer to US$3 billion—US$700 million was added for staff retention bonuses, and US$300 million in other bonuses pushed the originally reported US$2 billion price higher.

Webinar

Live Streaming Video & eSports

OTT video continues to garner an increasing share of viewers’ attention and entertainment budgets; live content in particular is fundamentally changing some aspects of the video space like news gathering. In a similar fashion the gaming industry has expanded to a wider breadth of players and participants. In both cases these markets also act as gateways to younger households for operators and content holders who still primarily rely on more traditional sources of revenue. This webinar discusses both these trends within the OTT and gaming markets and the market opportunities it presents to companies throughout the value chain.
