How Web Delivery Models Impact Television

At the IBC 2007 event, Strategy Analytics presents the findings of its analysis of the television industry value chain, and assesses the impact of emerging web delivery models on traditional TV broadcasting.

According to the recent Strategy Analytics report entitled "The Television and Movie Industry Explained: Where Does All the Money Go?" less than half of the $97.6 billion generated by Europe's television industry currently goes toward content production and acquisition. Web video and IPTV offer content owners the opportunity to shift the balance in their favor.

"In the last couple of years the internet has emerged as a viable platform for television distribution," comments Martin Olausson, Director, Digital Media Strategies. "As broadband access moves towards universal availability it presents content owners and emerging web players with the opportunity to permanently alter the traditional structure of the broadcast industry."

The Strategy Analytics Analyst Forum at IBC has become an established curtain-raiser to the first full day of this internationally important broadcast convention.

This year's Forum will address the theme: "Over the Top or Round the Back? Exploring the Emerging Multi-Billion Web Video Landscape, Revenue Outlook and Adoption Scenarios."

Senior analysts will explore the accelerating impact of Web TV, EST and Subscription Video on traditional broadcast business models. They will assess the changing structure of the media and technology industry, the conflicts and partnerships between legacy and emerging players and the scale of the revenue opportunity and its impact on established markets.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend IBC in person, but I will be reviewing any notable announcements that may emerge from this year's proceedings, or associated press releases.

Digital Identity Verification Market to Reach $16.7B

As more enterprise organizations embrace the ongoing transition to digital business transformation, CIOs and CTOs are adopting new technologies that enable the secure identification of individuals within their key stakeholder communities. A "digital identity" is a unique representation of a person. It enables individuals to prove their physical identity during transactions. Moreover, a digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for online interactions -- similar to a person's identity within the physical world. Individuals can use a 'digital ID' to be verified through an authorized digital channel. Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to identify a unique person online or offline. Digital Identity Systems Market Development Complementary to more traditional forms of identification, digital identity verification systems can enhance the authenticity, security, confidentiality, and efficiency of

Global Pandemic Accelerates the Evolution of Transportation

Given the current trends across the globe, organizations that depend upon the continued growth of personal vehicle ownership will need to consider a plan-B scenario. While some companies will be able to adapt, others may find that their traditional business model has been totally disrupted. According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) will displace over 2.2 billion private car journeys by 2025 -- that's rising from 471 million in 2021. Juniper believes that for MaaS to enjoy widespread adoption, subscription or on-the-go packages need to offer a strong combination of transport modes along with feasible infrastructure changes, high potential for data collection and low barriers to MaaS deployments. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development The concept of MaaS involves the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through a single platform by which users can determine the best route and price according to real-time traffic
