Multi-screen services to boost video infrastructure market in 2013
Campbell, CALIFORNIA, December 20, 2012—Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its recent video report, Video-on-Demand (VOD) and Encoder Equipment and Video Subscribers, which tracks equipment sold to telco IPTV, cable video, and satellite video providers.
"Operators are being extremely cautious with their video infrastructure spending right now, looking to sweat their assets as much as they can knowing that a spending spree looms on the horizon to support more unicast and multi-screen services, including RS-DVR, start-over, look-back, and streaming delivery to mobile devices," notesJeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. "We expect a noticeable jump in video equipment spending in 2013."
VOD AND ENCODER MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
Infonetics has increased its long-term forecast for the overall video infrastructure market to $1.1 billion by 2016, as operators worldwide migrate to MPEG-4 HD encoders to support higher picture quality using less bandwidth and as multi-screen services take off
For the quarter, VOD and encoder equipment revenue fell 3% in 3Q12 from 2Q12, with all regions declining by single digits
Following 2 consecutive quarters of declines, spending on VOD and streaming content servers grew 1.8% in 3Q12
Infonetics forecasts the number of IPTV subscribers to nearly double between 2012 and 2016, from 83 million to 165 million worldwide
