Multi-Format Video Transcoder Growing Upside

Digital video content is delivered to multiple device types over unmanaged networks with fluctuating bandwidth. As a result, video delivery must adapt to the variable bandwidth available on the IP network, the resolution and screen size of the receiving device, and the decoding capability (or limitations) of each device type.

Given that multifaceted scenario, a rigid one-size-fits-all solution is really not an option.

As more and more video content becomes available via the public Internet and accessible on mobile networks, the need for video transcoding products -- that can ingest content in one format and then output that content into the various video formats -- will grow significantly.

According to the latest market study by In-Stat, worldwide revenue for multi-format digital video transcoders will surpass $460 million in 2015.

"The industry is at the start of multiscreen delivery and TV Everywhere. Content providers expect in a few years that as much as 75 percent of their content will be available via the new distribution platforms," says Michelle Abraham, Research Director at In-Stat.

Multiscreen delivery -- either directly on the part of content creators, or via pay-TV service providers -- is driving the market for multiformat transcoders. In-Stat expects this increasing demand to remain the case for the next several years.

They define multiscreen as delivering content files or video streams to displays of various sizes and resolutions -- not just to the typical TV and the PC platforms.

In-Stat's latest market study found the following:
  • The multiscreen services from content providers are primarily being launched in the Americas and EMEA.
  • The expectations for TV Everywhere have brought new vendors to the market in 2011, Arris, Imagine Communications, and Thomson Video Networks.
  • In 2010, the file multiformat transcoding market grew by 72 percent due to the growth in multiscreen services from content providers.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards.

Secure Digital Workspace Apps Enable the Future Enterprise

In early 2020, as the world responded to the COVID-19 pandemic disruption, many organizations were forced to rapidly transform their communications networks and IT infrastructure to support an unprecedented shift to remote work. Before the pandemic, approximately 38 percent of employees were remote full-time or had a flexible work arrangement where they split time between home and office locations. During the pandemic, the percentage of remote workers that CIOs had to support reached almost 72 percent. Future Enterprise Technology Market Development Enterprise leaders have been forced to adapt to a new state, shifting from traditional office-based operations to distributed workforce environments that must still provide the same level of connectivity, security, and efficiency across the organization. According to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC), addressing connectivity across geographies and transforming networks to become more virtual and agile
