LCD TV Technology Rise to World Dominance

Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) televisions will continue their ascension to market dominance in the worldwide digital TV (DTV) market, according to the latest In-Stat market assessment.

LCD will have almost 75 percent of the market in 2011, with plasma fading to less than 15 percent, the high-tech market research firm says.

A series of seven recent In-Stat end-user surveys spanning six countries in three regions -- North America (U.S. and Canada), Asia (Japan and Korea) and Europe (UK, France, and Germany) -- revealed other notable findings.

"U.S. consumers exhibited reduced interest in HD TVs," says Michael Inouye, In-Stat analyst. "Respondents most interested in HD TVs, for instance, fell from 17 percent in 2006 to 13 percent in 2007, while those least interested increased 12 percentage points in 2007 to 65 percent."

International respondents, however, exhibited more interest in HD TVs. As an example, consumers in France and South Korea, in particular, demonstrated strong levels of interest (44 percent and 40 percent high-interest, respectively).

I believe that consumer education continues to be the roadblock to further HDTV adoption within the U.S. market. Apparently, many people still view only standard definition images on their expensive HD television.

Numerous market studies have uncovered that the vast majority of American consumers -- that have already purchased HDTV sets -- are not receiving high definition images because they have not installed and configured their TV correctly, or have not purchased the required cables for HD STB to DTV connectivity.

In-Stat's market study found the following:

- Global DTV unit shipments are expected to grow from 68 million units in 2006 to over 144 million by 2011.

- Total revenue is expected to grow from $71 billion in 2006 to $76.7 billion in 2011; pricing pressures are expected to hamper revenue growth.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Upside for New 5G Network Transport Infrastructure

The global mobile communication sector is in the midst of a significant network infrastructure upgrade to support the introduction of new high-bandwidth and low-latency broadband service offerings.  Telecom service provider data centers have an important role in fifth-generation (5G) network deployments. Providers undergoing their transition to Stand-Alone (SA) 5G must understand the technical demands of telco data centers and the key enablers of those offerings. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the major prerequisites of 5G and the emerging transport solutions would help operators position themselves to successfully capitalize on the new revenue opportunities from delivering differentiated 5G connectivity services. 5G Transport Network Market Development "The rise of the telco data center has a high degree of confluence with the requirements of SA 5G architectures. SA 5G and its increasing reliance on telco data centers can be attributed to the incr
