World Digital Terrestrial TV STB Opportunity

The global semiconductor opportunity in standard definition (SD) Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT) Set Top Boxes will peak in 2011 at nearly $500 million.

High-definition DTT Set Top Boxes also offer a short term spike in semiconductor opportunity. However, SD DTT Set Top Boxes are the more sustainable opportunity for semiconductor manufacturers, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

"The U.S. analog shut off is driving a surge of HD converter boxes in 2008 and 2009," says Gerry Kaufhold, In-Stat analyst. "However, this bubble will wane, while the SD DTT market continues to grow across a broader set of geographic markets."

Their report includes worldwide and regional forecasts for standard definition and HD STB shipments, revenue, bill of materials and component revenue through 2013. Extensive country-level unit/revenue shipment detail for major countries in Europe, North America and Asia -- including HD and DVR segmentation. Plus, the analog shut off timetable by country.

In-Stat's market study found the following:

- Key component categories include the Demux/CPU/AV decoder and the MPEG-2 MP@HL/Graphics IC.

- The European DTT STB Market Value will peak in 2011 at $1.6 billion.

- On a European country basis, UK leads the market, followed by Spain, France, Germany, and then Italy.

- Total DTT STB unit shipments will peak at 44 million in 2009.

- Standard Definition DTT Set Top Box unit shipments will peak in 2011.

Software-Defined Infrastructure: The Platform of Choice

As more organizations adapt to a hybrid working model for their distributed workforce, enterprise CIOs and CTOs are tasked with delivering new productivity-enabling applications, while also seeking ways to effectively reduce IT cost, complexity, and risk. Traditional IT hardware infrastructure is evolving to more software-based solutions. The worldwide software-defined infrastructure (SDI) combined software market reached $12.17 billion during 2020 -- that's an increase of 5 percent over 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). The market grew faster than other core IT technologies. The three technology pillars within the SDI market are: software-defined compute (53 percent of market value), software-defined storage controller (36 percent), and software-defined networking (11 percent). "Software-defined infrastructure solutions have long been popular for companies looking to eliminate cost, complexity, and risk within their data cente

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
