Predictions for Digital Terrestrial TV Adoption

The Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT) Set Top Box (STB) market is poised to surpass $1 billion due to the analog signal cutoff date of Feb. 17, 2009 in the U.S., and prospects of a large Chinese market, reports In-Stat.

As DTT markets mature, the growth in uptake of DTT tuners will continue, aided primarily by increased consumption for second and third TVs.

"The prospects of turning off analog terrestrial broadcasts, coupled with ongoing marketing campaigns, are powerful motivating factors for consumers to adopt the digital platform," says Michael Inouye, In-Stat analyst.

In-Stat's study found the following:

- Europe continues to lead DTT, and could see significant digital penetration as analog cutoffs continue and commence.

- While HD TV, in the near term, will likely remain a niche market in most countries, events like the 2008 Olympics and a larger HD TV installed base could help spur its adoption.

- In North America, a residual market will likely exist in 2010 and 2011, but it will pale in comparison to that of 2008-2009.

Manufacturers Benefit from GenAI Apps

Digital transformation goals continue to influence large enterprise IT spending. Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) has now emerged as a transformative technology. Its ability to create entirely new business models or designs holds immense promise across industries. Still, a recent market study by ABI Research, presented at the 'Hannover Messe 2024' event, paints a somewhat cautious picture of GenAI adoption in the global manufacturing sector. ABI Research highlighted a strong presence of GenAI at the event, with industrial software vendors showcasing its application in the form of AI assistants and co-pilots. They forecast revenue from GenAI use cases in manufacturing will reach $10.5 billion by 2034.
