IP Video Multi-format Transcoder Market Upside

The continuing growth of video content that's delivered via the Internet and through mobile wireless services will drive the multi-format transcoder market to more than double its revenues by 2014, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

Multi-format video transcoder products were developed to ingest content in one format and output it in another, often at varying resolutions and bit-rate profiles. This technology is vital to IP video distribution.

"Robust growth in the multi-format transcoder market will continue over the next several years as more tape archives are converted to digital files, more video content is uploaded or streamed over the Internet, and multi-screen TV delivery services move from lab trials in 2010 to deployments," says Michelle Abraham, In-Stat analyst.

The further out in the distribution network that video is transcoded, the more transcoders are needed.

In-Stat's latest market study found the following:

- The IP video market is mostly comprised of small vendors that were founded in the last 10 years.

- Worldwide revenues from enterprise-class multi-format transcoders will grow from $117 million in 2009 to $297 million in 2014.

- Multi-format transcoder products are often based on flexible software platforms, whether running on a server or contained in a hardware appliance, due to the need to constantly add new video codecs and wrappers.

IoT Device Management Demand Gains Momentum

More forward-thinking CIOs and CTOs are focused on the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). Management challenges are top of mind for those who have already deployed a large number of sensors and associated network edge devices. Device management services are evolving in response to a greater breadth of new device technologies such as edge intelligence and related connectivity solutions, as well as the customer scalability and security of IoT deployments. But forward-looking suppliers are also preparing for a world where 41.3 percent of the connected devices will be using some form of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies by 2026. IoT Device Management Market Development Since IoT customers increasingly need to manage a larger fleet of connected devices, ABI Research now forecasts that IoT device management services will exceed $36.8 billion in revenues by 2026. Standardization is beginning to play a bigger role in device management services, as more connected devices use LPWA t

Anywhere, Anytime Workplace Demand for SASE

The ongoing adoption of flexible working models within the enterprise market has significant implications for typical IT organizations that must now support knowledge workers and front-line employees that operate outside the corporate network perimeter. The global COVID-19 pandemic created IT networking and security challenges. The expansion of the distributed workforce, an increasing reliance on cloud computing infrastructure, and the requirement to securely connect online employees -- wherever they choose to work, at any given moment in time. Legacy IT solutions that have rigid network underlays and a requirement for on-premises infrastructure cannot adequately deal with these trends. This 'Anywhere, Anytime Workplace' led to demand for new Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solutions, with networking and security delivered as-a-service.
