Satellite TV Uplinks Evolve to Support HDTV

Demand for live high definition television content has a trickle down effect throughout the media sector, and eventually reaches the suppliers that provide both digital origination systems and related services.

The worldwide Satellite TV uplink industry is emerging as an important growth driver for a wide and expanding range of digital video production equipment and video management products, reports In-Stat.

This market will experience solid, sustained incremental revenue growth, and have a value of $306 million during 2010, the high-tech market research firm says.

"The Satellite TV uplink industry is mature, but facing changes and growth opportunities," says Gerry Kaufhold, In-Stat analyst. "Each geographic region is developing along a unique path based on the changing demands of their local markets. However, all markets are being impacted by the need to support High Definition TV (HDTV) programming services."

In-Stat research found the following:

- Satellite TV uplinks will upgrade their video equipment at a regular pace for many years to come.

- New technologies may slow down the need to launch new satellites, but HDTV will eventually force the issue.

- There will be strong opportunities for the larger companies that manufacture professional video equipment.

The Cloud Imperative for Telecom Operators

The telecom sector is undertaking an update of its IT infrastructure. As demand for data continues to soar with the proliferation of 5G and new apps, network operators can't rely on their legacy hardware and network architectures. The process of "Cloudification" offers a path to reduce costs, improve efficiency and scalability, plus meet increasingly ambitious infrastructure sustainability goals. According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, cloudification spending by telecom operators will see tremendous growth in the coming years, rising from $26.6 billion in 2024 to $64.9 billion by 2028 -- that's a 144 percent increase in just four years.
