Broadcast International Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- Broadcast International (OTCQB: BCST) ("BI"), a leading provider of video-powered broadcast solutions, reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Q3 2012 Highlights

  • Cayman Islands-based WestStar TV selected CodecSys to provide the framework for its new Over-the-Top (OTT) service. Based on BI's CodecSys patented multi-codec compression software, the solution enables WestStar's subscribers to receive local and global content on their mobile devices.

  • Partnered with to provide a triple play OTT video service for netTALK's more than 1 million subscribers. netTALK TV, an extension of netTALK's Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service, will bring customers a total communications and entertainment experience by permitting access to online video content via a CodecSys-enabled OTT or Video on Demand (VOD) playback service.

  • Binbit Group, a global provider of mobile entertainment services, selected CodecSys to expand its video on demand web and mobile device capabilities. CodecSys encoding and transcoding systems were installed in Binbit's Austin, Texas data center to support its regional operations.

Q3 2012 Financial Results
Revenue in the third quarter 2012 increased 2% sequentially to $2.05 million from $2.00 million in the prior quarter, and decreased 10% from $2.3 million in the same year-ago period. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to fewer expansion sites installed for the company's largest digital signage customer, partially offset by an increase in license fees and other professional services.

Gross profit in the third quarter 2012 was $779,000 (a record since becoming publicly-traded company) or 38% of total revenue. This was an improvement from $654,000 or 33% of total revenue in the previous quarter and from $758,800 or 33% of total revenue in the same year-ago period.

Total operating expenses in the third quarter 2012 decreased 24% sequentially to $1.9 million from $2.5 million in the prior quarter, and decreased 22% from $2.4 million in Q3 2011.

Operating loss in the third quarter 2012 was $1.1 million, an improvement from an operating loss of $1.8 million in the previous quarter and an operating loss of $1.7 million in the same year-ago period. The significant decrease in operating losses is primarily due to effective cost cutting programs, along with increased gross profits that have helped to reduce the monthly burn rate by nearly 50% or $239,000.

Net loss in the third quarter 2012 totaled $711,000 or $(0.01) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net profit of $847,000 or $0.01 per basic and diluted share in the prior quarter, and compared to a net profit of $4.0 million or $0.05 per basic and diluted share in Q3 2011. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to a $4.8 million change in the fair value of the company's warrants and convertible notes.

Management Commentary
"Our third quarter results reflect our ongoing efforts to reduce expenses and drive margin expansion," said Jim Solomon, CFO of Broadcast International. "In fact, we achieved our highest-ever gross margins since becoming a publicly-traded company. We continued to see our operating expenses decrease both on a year-over-year and sequential basis, and anticipate further optimization going forward.

"As we wrap up the year and prepare for 2013, we remain focused on expanding and diversifying our BI Networks and CodecSys customer base. We are confident that over the course of 2012, we have put in place the right personnel and resources to handle the anticipated ramp-up in our business, while continuing to provide our loyal customers exceptional service and support. Our BI Networks division continues to gain traction in the financial services industry, and we remain well positioned to capitalize on the growing opportunity for CodecSys in the enterprise IP video and OTT markets, both domestically and overseas."

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, will show how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete en...
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, al...
IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
In his session at DevOps Summit, Bryan Cantrill, CTO at Joyent, will demonstrate a third path: containers on multi-tenant bare metal that maximizes performance, security, and networking connectivity.

There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles.

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration. Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.
