Impact of Cancellation of LeEco-Vizio AcquisitionApril 12, 2017In April 2017, LeEco and Vizio announced jointly that the $2 billion acquisition of Vizio by LeEco would no longer proceed. Instead, the two companies would pursue some limited strategic partnerships. What are the implications of this? Certainly in the short term, we do not see a major impact on Vizio's North America TV business, but there may be a long term challenge for expansion beyond the North America market without finding alternate sources of capital, either though another private investment opportunity or via public options. For LeEco, this is a significant blow to the prospect of gaining a rapid foothold in the US market, and continued indications of financial challenges represent an ongoing difficulty. The attached report delves into the impacts, and examines some possible outcomes, including the potential for Foxconn to approach Vizio to further ambitious global growth goals.Subscribers Only
Netflix goes Ultra High DefinitionApril 09, 2014Netflix has started streaming content in Ultra HD (UHD), branded as Ultra HD 4K. UHD is approximately 4 times the resolution of Full HD. Netflix is streaming UHD content as its highest bandwidth profile at 15.6 Mbps, referenced on Netflix’s in-app player as 2160 HD. UHD streaming has currently only been rolled out for House of Cards season two. The video stream is compressed using next generation h.265/HEVC, therefore requiring both an HEVC decoder, as well as an updated version of Netflix’s client player. Netflix UHD clients are already embedded on UHD TVs offered by LG, Samsung, Sony and Vizio.
