TV Everywhere: Will it be Too Little, Too Late?

The growth of online video adoption and consumption is happening faster than most media industry analysts had expected. By 2014, it's forecast that there will be 57 million U.S. broadband households viewing full-length online video on the TV, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

Revenue associated with this web-to-TV video content will grow at an accelerated rate, from $2 billion to over $17 billion during a five-year period.

"The over-the-top (OTT) video market represents a new distribution channel for digital entertainment. Content producers want to market premium video content directly to the consumer," says Keith Nissen, Principal Analyst, In-Stat.

That said, they have not yet decided the best way to monetize OTT video content and how to manage the "good enough" OTT video service opportunity in context with their legacy distribution partners -- the slow moving traditional pay-TV channel.

As incumbent pay-TV providers overcome their concerns regarding the cannibalization of existing service revenue, then perhaps they will eventually act to deliver competitive OTT streaming IP video services.

The question remains, however, will the promise of "TV Everywhere" offerings fully emerge to coincide with the current market opportunity, or arrive very slowly as a belated damage-control effort?

In-Stat's market study highlights include:

- The installed base of web-enabled consumer electronics video devices will grow from 70 million in 2009 to 237 million in 2014.

- The total number of U.S. broadband households that own web-enabled CE video devices will nearly triple to 98 million by 2014.

- Within five years, over 11 million operator-provisioned hybrid STBs will be delivering online video content directly to the TV.

Credit Scoring Service Spending will Reach $44B

Credit scoring is a method that lenders use to predict the probability a borrower or counter-party will default on loans, or incur additional charges for repayment -- also known as measuring credit worthiness. The method is a key tool in making credit affordable for individuals and businesses. It links credit products to risk potential, connecting borrowers to secondary capital markets and increasing the amount of funds available. This securing process establishes risk predictability dependent on a number of factors, determined by financial indicators and other publicly available information reported by the credit bureaus.

Demand for Quantum Computing as a Service

The enterprise demand for quantum computing is still in its early stages, growing slowly. As the technology becomes more usable, we may see demand evolve beyond scientific applications. The global quantum computing market is forecast to grow from $1.1 billion in 2022 to $7.6 billion in 2027, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). That's a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48.1 percent. The forecast includes base Quantum Computing as a Service, as well as enabling and adjacent Quantum Computing as a Service. However, this updated forecast is considerably lower than IDC's previous quantum computing forecast, which was published in 2021, due to lower demand globally. Quantum Computing Market Development In the interim, customer spend for quantum computing has been negatively impacted by several factors, including: slower than expected advances in quantum hardware development, which have delayed potential return on inve
