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.

Digital Solutions for Industrial & Manufacturing Firms

Executive leaders of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) are seeking guidance on how to apply new business technology in their manufacturing operations. CIOs and CTOs are tasked with gaining insight into the best solutions for digital transformation. ABI Research evaluated the impact politics, regulation, the economy, supply chain, ESG, and technology are having on FMCG, pharma, producers of steel, chemicals, pulp and paper -- as well as the mining and oil & gas sectors. Digital Transformation Market Development "Our assessment found that the FMCG sector is under pressure from all sides," says Michael Larner, industrial & manufacturing research director at ABI Research . Securing raw materials is challenging considering lockdowns in China and limited grain supplies from Ukraine. Supply shocks are raising input costs, and operating costs are rising with higher energy costs coupled with the pressure to pay higher wages and work sustainably. "We all hoped that with th

5G Fixed Wireless Access Revenue to Reach $24B

Available Internet access at an affordable cost is essential for everyone to participate in the Global Networked Economy. The deployment of fifth-generation (5G) wireless communications infrastructure is enabling the introduction of lower-cost broadband services in some markets. Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) allows mobile network operators (MNO) to deliver high-speed Internet connections in areas that have either insufficient or no prior wireline broadband access services. It's also used in urban, suburban, and rural areas where fiber optic communication is considered too expensive to install and maintain. With this new technology, MNOs have the potential to provide broadband capability at similar levels to fiber optic networks. Fixed Wireless Access Market Development Therefore, FWA can be used to supplement existing wired broadband Internet service offerings, provide additional broadband capacity, or act as a backup service for home or business applications. Although FWA is well es
