Opportunities for Emerging Digital Media

In their latest report, Research and Markets predicts that Video on Demand (VoD) services will reach 350 million homes across the world by 2010.

"Instead they are more interested in new services such as provided by Internet, online services, pay-per-view and on-demand services."

However, this transition hinges on a crucial but often overlooked factor: the modernization and expansion of our aging power grids across the globe. For decades the backbone of our electricity delivery system has been largely static. The influx of variable renewable energy sources like solar and wind presents a new challenge. Smart Power Grid Market Development Integrating these resources effectively requires a Smarter, more Responsive grid that can handle fluctuating power generation and efficiently distribute it across vast distances. This is where a new trillion-dollar energy market growth opportunity emerges. According to a recent worldwide market study by ABI Research, global investments in public grid digitalization and transmission network expansion must exceed $4 trillion by 2030 to meet our
